We have dined 3 times in the last few weeks with different friends prior to Emelin show. Love that it is still spaced out and utilizing covid protocols. the service has been extremely attentive, professional and friendly each time. We have tried different appetizers and entrees and all the parties were very satisfied. Highly recommend.

Had a wonderful meal there on Saturday night. We were there early, so no crowd yet and noise level was quiet. Service was very attentive and unobtrusive. Food was delicious! Very fresh and tasty. We were in the area from out of town, but would love to come back again!

First visit to the restaurant. Menu had many good options, including typical Italian fare. We ate mostly seafood and pasta, tried appetizers, sides and wine. Our group uniformly enjoyed most everything. Good portions. Not inexpensive, but fairly-priced. I will return.

Always love a quiet, romantic evening with my man at Nonna’s. The NY strip was better than what I’ve had in steakhouses. Great vibe to unwind and leave the day’s stress behind!

Nonna Carola was such a hidden gem. From the service, cocktails and food were all top notch. The pappardelle and the chicken parm were the best I ever had. My waiter was very attentive and responsive to my requests. The tiramisu was to die for. I will definitely return and recommend to all of my friends.

I can’t begin to say how much I love this place! The branzino and the ny strip were among the very best that I have ever tasted. My friend’s cod was also delectable. Service was super-accommodating and attentive. Will be back for my birthday next week!

Great experience. The restaurant was beautiful, the staff was outstanding, and the dinner itself was delicious. Besides the main course, it was the best espresso martini, which they call a Coffee Talk, that I've ever tasted. I will definitely be back.

The service and food was really not good at all.. I was disappointed I dragged my friends there because they supposedly had the best chicken parm in the county. It was really awful.. took forever.. my friend sent back her risotto. Don’t try it.

I had such a wonderful time I went twice in one week. First for a business event that I coordinated, then for a special occasion with family. This restaurant is well suited for both types, and would be an equally good choice for a date night. The outdoor area is beautiful, everything well spaced, plenty of heaters and even an outdoor fireplace for chilly nights, and great atmosphere inside and out. The place was renovated a couple of years ago and is unrecognizable—they did a fantastic job. The food is top notch (and I’ve now tried just about everything on the menu) and the staff was extremely attentive and accommodating. I wouldn’t hesitate to host another business event here, bring my husband for date night, or bring my whole family with little kids—it’s spaced perfectly so that they can handle any of it.

We really enjoy eating at Nonna Carolla. The food and service are both excellent. The new menu is much more varied then it had been and has something for everyone. Five of us ate Branzino, Swordfish, Paperdelle, Risotto and Pork Chop and all enjoyed. We've had the same waiter, Steve, for the last two visits and he is so nice and accommodating. The restaurant is set up so comfortably with socially distant tables. The outdoor patio is lovely and if it's not too cold they have several heat lamps. We're looking forward to eating there again soon!

2nd time there (first one was in the summer). First time was much better. Had the Cod - way overcooked - and risotto - below average. Very disapointed this time.

It was a wonderful night with great ambience, good food and just an overall good time. I think the wait staff worked hard but it took 35+ minutes to get salads and another 30 minutes+ to get our entrees. I think they need more servers to handle the number of diners.

This is a Hidden Gem! Excellent food and staff. Beautiful quiet outdoor seating area in the back. Chef very accommodating to food preparation preferences.
I recommend mussels and salmon with pureed corn. Panna cotta for dessert!

I cannot rave enough about Nonna Carola! The food, the ambiance, the staff were incredible. We sat outside and loved every minute of our time there. I also went to see the upstairs room for my sister’s baby shower and we are about to finalize our booking! Regina is the sweetest soul and a pleasure to be around. I am really excited about going again for dinner and also excited about celebrating my sister’s baby shower and getting to work with Regina.

This was our first visit, and we were lucky to be seated outdoors, which is wonderful. The four of us all had salads to start … all fresh with light dressings. My wife had an eggplant rollotini appetizer as her entree, which she said was delicious. My friend had the fish in a pepperanata sauce that was one of the best fish dishes he (or any of us) had tasted. Absolutely fantastic. My steak dish was yummy, although not quite as memorable as the fish.

Our server recommended a wonderful red Italian wine that seemed fairly priced. Desserts were excellent.

Overall, the experience was terrific. Nonna Carola is a great addition to the Mamaroneck Avenue food scene, and a restaurant we will 100% visit again. On our way out near closing time, we met Chef Phil who shared his philosophy and plan to frequently change the menu. He’s eager to experiment with flavors and hopes his “regulars” will try out new things each time. We hope to be in that category.
