Nonna provides a unique ambience blooming with history where you can savor Italian classics dishes abundant with fresh vegetables, assorted cheeses, extra virgin olive oil and “live” homemade pasta.

The menu includes a selection of dishes ranging from antipasti, soups and pasta with a variety of meats and seafood. The pizzas are made with carefully selected ingredients including Caputo flour from Naples, Italy, extra virgin olive oil unfiltered and fresh mozzarella.

"La Nonna” was the precursor of this Italian cuisine where they used the best ingredients while preparing everything from scratch. It is a throwback to the traditional and rustic cuisine. We try to respect these methods and recipes from the past while integrating cutting-edge techniques.

    I tried this place because of a recommendation from a colleague and it did not disappoint. It is rustic, but upscale. Service was excellent, the house wine was very drinkable, and the food was . . . not just delicious, but different. It is an Italian place, but they have things on the menu like duck and pear ravioli (which I almost tried) and lamb lasagna (which I ordered). The lasagna was very, very good . . . flavorful, not gamey. My friend tells me that the vegetable lasagna is very good as well. So maybe next time I will try that . . . or the ravioli.

    I’ve dined in Nonna a couple of times before and my experience had been excellent until yesterday. The service was ok but the food was not as expected. The pasta was really undercooked. The waiter was very apologetic and gave us the desert for free for the inconvenience.

    Dinner took 2 hours to get to us and then it was cold. We did get comped dessert. Also they don’t use tap water only have bottles which is a scam because it forces you to pay for bottled water.

    One of the best Italian meals I’ve ever had. Best service I had all week in Puerto Rico. Pizza, Ragu, Arincini, and salad were all outstanding. Our waiter was fast and friendly. Worth the 15 minute walk from our hotel!

    Amazing food and Service. The ambient is nice. Though it could be improved, it is cozy enough to enjoy awesome food and tremendous wine. Strongly recommended. There´s no private parking but that was not a big deal, in the end, to find a spot close.

    Good food and service. Must park on the street which could be an inconvenience. Reservations are a must especially on a Friday night. I did not visit since the pandemic and am glad that this restaurant is still open in the midst of a challenging economy and so many closings. Will keep coming.

    been coming to this place for various years past, but not since 2020 due to the situation that had many of us kind of away from many places. I enjoyed the food along with my wife, nothing change, good consistency and prices did not increase much, normal increase due to the circumstances

    While the pasta was tasty, the NY Steak was very hard to chew. Service was good. Carpaccio was decent, not the best we’ve had. I would come back to try other pasta dishes, but nothing else.

    The ambiance, service and food are very good. We had the eggplant appetizer, it could have used less mozzarella and more eggplant, but flavorful and the tomato sauce is hearty. Drinks and appetizers came out quickly, main entree was slow to come out but so good. We had the duck & pear ravioli, the reduction sauce was a bit sweet. We had the short rib with saffron polenta, very good and rich. I do recommend, but plan for a lingering stay.

    Food was good but service was slow so make sure you are not in a rush. The kitchen substituted a meat based ravioli for the vegetarian one we ordered for without asking. I found this odd and was surprised til I ate into it.
