Let me start by saying I am in love with Casa Nonna. It definitely sits at the top of my Fav Italian Restaurants. I've enjoyed the cuisine of Casa Nonna twice, already. The first time I was introduced to this hidden midtown jewel was by a friend, who wanted to meet for lunch. She was very familiar with the restaurant, so she ordered us a few dishes to share. The food was absolutely amazing.
I have to back up and talk about the decor of this place. It's simply gorgeous, with the most amazing pizza bar. It's probably the best I've seen. And they have an open kitchen. Nice! The dark wood, the seating and the lighting make the experience very comfortable and almost made me not want to leave. The customer service was pefect and the staff are true professionals. They add to the entire experience, which I wrap up with the word, "Class".
Okay, now back to the food. Their meatballs are the best I've ever had, which I believe are made with veal instead of beef. They just melt in your mouth. I also really enjoyed the Tortelloni, which they call "Little Hats". The pasta is made fresh and it was just perfect. There are so many more dishes that I enjoyed, like the bruschetta with the eggplant, but you'll never fully understand how amazing the food truly is unless you try it yourself. Oh, and how could I forget that they have a great wine list. When I was at the bar the bartender suggested a Pinot Noir, which I was very happy with. Overall, I loved the the entire Casa Nonna experience. I can't wait for my parents to visit me, so we can have a family dinner there.
