I've been hearing great things about this pizzeria in the South that I couldn't help myself from wanting to visit it ASAP. However, the place isn't exactly near. In fact, it isn't even in Metro Manila. But when I won some gift certificates from that restaurant, I finally have a good reason to drive all the way to Nuvali for lunch. And I finally did a few weeks ago.

Hello, Nonna's!

This restaurant, which is also a brainchild of the brilliant minds behind the successful Mama Lou's, was quite packed on a Sunday morning. Thankfully, we were early enough to secure a table for five.

Our orders were pretty much patterned after the raved about dishes of the reviews I've read and we went with Mushroom Chicharon (PHP160), Mozzarella Sticks (PHP180) and Grandma's Meatballs (PHP195) for appetizers, Spinach and Goat's Cheese (PHP365) and Prosciutto Arugula (PHP450) for pizza, Fettuccine Carbonara (PHP245), Nonna's Truffle (PHP295) and Salmon Caviar (PHP350) for pasta. For drinks, we went with a pitcher of Iced Tea (PHP150).

Service was fast as our pitcher of iced tea was served in 5 minutes and our appetizers soon followed.

I still remember all the capital letters and excessive use of vowels to describe this mushroom chicharon. And true enough, it was stellar. I love how Nonna's made mushrooms into this scrumptious addicting snack. The dark dipping sauce reminded me of the one used for crispy pata giving the dish more flavor and slight tanginess.

The Mozzarella Sticks were pretty good too. The golden brown breading was crunchy while the melted mozzarella paired with pomodoro sauce was divine!

Though I prefer the mozzarella to have a stronger taste, this dish is great for those who are not too fond of tangy dishes.

Grandma's Meatballs which had pomodoro, pesto and alfredo sauce was like a pasta dish without the pasta.

Great for those avoiding carbs but those sinful sauces are just so good that you'd want one order all to yourself.

Our pasta dishes were served next and I liked Fetuccine Carbonara best. It was creamy and absolutely flavorful. It didn't veer away from the classic carbonara which I prefer.

I was expecting to like the Nonna's Truffle Pasta more than the carbonara but it didn't have that pronounced truffle taste that I like. It was actually a bit blander than expected. Or maybe it was because I indulged in other dishes with stronger tastes prior to this one.

I wasn't able try the Salmon Caviar Pasta but based on how fast R's dad and uncle were able to finish their split portions, it must be good.

For the pizzas, we all liked the Prosciutto Arugula more than the Spinach with Goat's Cheese.

I might be a bit biased here as I am a fan of those thin slices of cured ham. I just love the contrast of flavors among the salty prosciotto, slightly bitter taste of arugula and the tangy taste of tomato sauce which are all balanced by the delightful crust.

R's dad was not too crazy with the Spinach with Goat's Cheese as he's not fond of goat and its byproducts. And this particular pizza has a very strong taste of goat's cheese. However, those who are not into pizza toppings might like this one.

Overall, it was a very pleasant lunch. Servers were very friendly and even assisted me in my flatlays and lifted a pizza slice for me. Nonna's is a place of good food and good vibes. I can't wait for my next visit and I do hope that they open a branch nearer home.

I love their Napoli Pizza 128156 So for those who love anchovies, this is for you. It's Bricked Oven cooked so that's a plus for me. As for the pasta, the Amatriciana was very good except that I found it too oily and even though I love bacon I would have enjoyed it without it.

The service was excellent, we didn't complain that the pizza was served late but they were very proactive, apologetic and even gave us a free desert 128522 Good job on this!

Nonna's has been in my Reco list since it opened and I only got to visit last week.

🔹Mushroom Chicharon. MUST TRY. Despite being hesitant, I ordered this because of my trusted foodies. Thankfully, it was super good!128523

🔹Pizza. They allow 2 flavors in one order.
127829All Meat
Flavors were good and made better by the honey sauce but the dough and meat of the all-meat were a little tough.

🔹Aglio Olio Pasta. Great flavor and noodles were cooked perfectly. Serving amount was little though.

One Saturday, my northern officemates visited South. And since we have a car, Ony and I decided to bring them to NONNA's. 128155 I've been telling them (for the longest time already) how good the pizza is here. I love love their pizza, it's one of the best. So happy that they'll be able to try it now for real!! 128077🏼

FOOD 127860

MUSHROOM CHICHARON. A must try when eating here at Nonna's. Really good and addicting! They all loved this! 128076🏼

TRUFFLE MAC & CHEESE. Our favorite!!! Truffle and cheese heaven! It had the right level of cheesiness and truffle goodness. Nothing too overpowering! Only comment is the serving size is kind of smaller here when compared to Mama Lou's. 128546

SPAGHETTI ARRABIATA. This was also good. Not too spicy, a bit sour (which is usual?). The pasta was cooked al dente.

They all loved both the pasta but the mac & cheese was the winner, it was their favorite! 128155

For our pizza, we tried 2 flavors. It's really nice that they allow 2 flavors in one pizza. Very practical! You get to try more flavors without spending and eating too much. 128521

TUTTI FORMAGGI PIZZA. One of the best tasting cheese pizza for me. I love the crust, it's soft and chewy but still w a little bit of crunch and with just the right amount of cheese! What makes this even better (for me) is the honey sauce + a sprinkle of their really hot chili flakes. Sweet, salty, and spicy! Sarap! 128525128525

HAWAIIAN. This was just okay. Instead of the usual ham + pineapples, they used a different type of meat, prosciutto? (not sure but it starts w letter P 128518128517) and added jalapeños. I love hawaiian pizza (Yes, pizza w pineapple is NOT weird! It's good and possibly one of the best combination ever created!! 128540). This was good, they liked this. But since I like the usual version, for me, it would be better if they just used ham and added a lot of pineapples. 128513

ICED TEA. House blended iced tea. This was good, not too sweet and was very refreshing. Perfect for the hot weather! 9728

Btw, they are open as early as 7am since they now offer breakfast options. Yayyy!! 128155

I've been reading such awesome reviews about Nonna's and today, I finally got to go to Nuvali to try it! I had high expectations coming in and I'm very happy to say that I wasn't disappointed!

We had buffet breakfast earlier in the day so we just ordered food to snack on while cooling down since it was pretty hot outside.

We ordered the famous Mushroom Chicharon. It's as addicting as everyone says it is!

For our first pizza, we had it split into half-Margherita and half-Spinach and Goat's Cheese. The Spinach and Goat's Cheese was an instant winner so we got another half and paired it with the Tutti Formaggi. Make use of the chili honey for maximum deliciousness!!!

Really great food and equally great service! Will definitely be back!

I've loved this place ever since the Looloo rendezvous here. So for our wedding anniversary, I couldn't think of any other place I'd love to bring my hubby and son but at Nonna's! My boys happen to like pizza and pasta so this place is perfect!
Food is excellent as always!
My boys enjoyed the Mushroom Chicharon, Mozzarella Sticks, 5 Cheese Pizza, Spaghetti with Meatballs and Carbonara.
Service is awesome. Such welcoming and accommodating staff.
Total bill *with a pitcher of iced tea -- P1,550. 128077

Kaya kami napadpad dito sa restaurant na ito kasi naghahanap kami ng may komportableng upuan. Yung mga restaurants na nasa hanay niya eh lahat matitigas ang salungwetpaks. Nakita namin na may couch dito so tiningnan namin ang menu. Nakita ko kaagad yung cheese pizza! So ayun na.

Mabait naman yung server at inexplain pa sa akin yung spicy honey nila or honey with chili ba yun. Anyway...

So nagorder ako ng tutti formaggi. Masarap talaga ang halo-halong cheese sa bunganga ko. Kaso lang sana medyo crispy or crunchy ang dough. Ang lembot lembot kasi eh. So naglagay ako ng chili honey nila. Medyo weird lang ang lasa kasi naging matamis ang pizza ko. Ayaw ko nun haha!

Binudburan ko na lang ng aking peborit chili flakes yung pizza kaso ang anghang!! Meron akong chili flakes sa aking bahay pero di ganun ka-anghang haha! Baka may ibang halong sili yung flakes nila. Pero nagenjoy ako sa pag-nguya with matching babad ng aking tongue sa water. Ang anghang kaya!

Yung kasama ko nagorder ng longganisa pasta. Masarap din naman kaso lang hindi al dente ang noodles. Hindi ako sure kung home-made yung noodles nila ha kasi ba naman para siyang kapareho ng instant noodles. Oo ganun ang hitsura pero mas firm. Generous din ang serving ng longganisa. Nagreklamo yung kasama ko kasi kulang daw sa noodles haha!

Babalik ako dito para ma-try ang ibang pagkain nila pero dadalhin ko siguro yung chili flakes ko sa bahay 128541

To be able to use the GC's Bernisse C won from the previous looloo giveaway, we drove all the way to Laguna to Solenad 3 to eat at Nonna's. It was tough to use up PHP 2,000 worth of GC's for a small group! 128514 But we were quite hungry since some of us had an early breakfast and some skipped it completely. 128584

This was really interesting. It was crispy and went well with the vinegar. The crispy mushrooms mimicked the chicharon bulaklak but less sinful 128514 It was quite oily though but I half expected it to be because it is a deep fried dish.

A pizza with 5 types of cheese for all the cheese lovers out there!!

A pizza topped with bacon, mushrooms and egg - very runny egg! It's pretty good but it lacks a bit on the flavor. Adding spicy honey to it makes it better. (Reminded me of another pizza place with the same condiment 128521)

I LOVE THIS PASTA!! 10084️ It's so simple and clean! It's an oil based pasta with tomatoes and mozzarella. It's really great in between the flavorful pizzas and pastas 128077🏼

This was really great too!! Their pasta was homemade pasta, I think. Cooked al dente. 128076🏼 They were quite generous with the sea urchin. It tasted like seafood but it wasn't too fishy.

Best truffle mac & cheese ever! 128525 The macaroni inside had truffle mushroom sauce and the cheese on top was baked just right. It was a little crispy on the top, which I really really liked. 128076🏼

After the meal, we were all so bloated!! Too much food – actually, too much CARBS! In one meal!! 128565 But it was worth it!

(Inspired to do |oo|oo reviews again the past weeks128074🏼128521)
Now on with the review..

Upon arrival at Nuvali, It has been four years since the last time I've stepped here of course many things has been built I got a bit lost in finding Solenad 3, thank God my instincts were correct, I followed the lighted tunnel and then cross and walk and cross and look around and walk and at last I found big blue green colored letters --NONNA'S.

Nonna's, italian word for grandmother, is a new restaurant concept of the owner of Mama Lou's Italian Kitchen. And I'm excited!
Btw, the staffs were overall friendly, and courteous, and assisted me right away though my friends hadn't arrived yet.

128073🏼Really, this was the best meal starter Mushroom Chicharon 128076🏼128076🏼128076🏼128076🏼128076🏼 fried oyster mushroom served with vinaigrette --tastes similarly like crispy chicken skin. I swear when I return I will order this again! A must must must try!

128073🏼A dirnk called Nonna's Lemonade was a basil infused lemonade which was a great palette cleanser in between dishes.

Pastas served were made fresh on a daily basis who wouldn't want that?

128073🏼Salmon Caviar Pasta with alfredo sauce, fresh smoked salmon, chives and topped with caviar. This was a new pasta experience for me since I was used to the traditional pasta recipes.

128073🏼The pasta star was the Vesuvio named after a volcano in Italy. Presentation wise, really looked like a volcano in a creamy and yummy eruption on an assembly of rigatoni stuffed with mozzarella, ricotta, peas, italian meatball and egg. Definitely a volcanic party in my mouth!

128073🏼All-Meat Pizza ladies and gents, Nonna's version with their homemade italian sausage, along with bacon, salami, pomodoro and mozzarella. MEATY indeed.

128073🏼Kimchi Pizza is a new twist from italian pizza to korean. If you're into spicy or loves korean food give this a try.

128073🏼Of course the Tutti Formaggi everyone! Neither three, nor four, but five cheese goodness in this FIVE-CHEESE-OOOEY-GOOOEY-CHEESY PIZZAAA capslock for emphasis. This is what I like!

Tip: For further enjoyment of the flavor, you may want to try the chilli honey on the pizza instead of hot sauce, yes honey because it is said to release the flavor of the pizza well.

128073🏼Pizzaokie is super moist freshly baked cookie topped with vanilla ice cream and mallows. I am craving it right now! Better to eat it when served but just be cautious to its hotness.
And the Creme Brulee fresh and creamy with that nice crackling sound upon breaking the top.128076🏼128076🏼

My sisters and I decided to drive all the way to Nuvali last Saturday just to have lunch at Nonna's. Thank you too | looloo and Nonna's for being generous with their prizes and GCs! 128149

As we entered, we were greeted by welcoming staff, wooden tables and glass windows. I loved the rustic + modern vibe of the place. It's quite adorable how one part of the room is surrounded with wooden rustic feels while the other half was filled with white brick walls and ceramic tables. Who knew such combination could bring life to the place?

We rushed to order as we were famished after the long drive. For appetizer, we went for the MUSHROOM CHICHARON | [P160] 1108811088110881108811088️ which is made of crispy fresh oyster mushrooms served with vinaigrette. At first glance, you'd doubt they were mushrooms. Even after my first bite, I still couldn't believe they were mushrooms. It's really soft but crispy at the same time. A little less sinful than your regular chicharon. I must say, I couldn't stop munching on it. After barely five minutes, the plate was clean and I was restraining myself to order another serving.

For our main dishes, we decided to go for carbs and carbs and carbs!

TUTTI FORMAGGI | [P350] 11088110881108811088
Mozarella • gouda • honeygoat cheese • parmesan • blue cheese
A must for cheese lovers 128525 Add a drizzle of their spicy honey to seal everything in. Or maybe more than a drizzle for my sweet tooth.

PIZZA BIANCO [P450] 1108811088
Alfredo • bacon • mushrooms • cracked black pepper • parmesan cheese • whole egg
I had high expectations for this since I always see people raving about Gino's version and I read a few reviews that Nonna's wasn't bad either. Wasn't really thrilled about the whole egg thing on a pizza. Tasted a bit too raw for my liking.
TOMATO MOZZARELLA [P215] 11088110881108811088
Fresh tomatoes • mozzarella • olive oil • Italian parsley
All pastas are homemade. Definitely feeling the love and attention for food from that 128149 This is something I consider a simple dish executed well. It's light and refreshing yet fulfilling.

UNI CAVIAR PASTA [P350] 11088110881108811088
Alfredo sauce • fresh sea urchin • chives • caviar
Despite my sister's claim that this tasted "fishy", I beg to disagree. I had my expectations and it didn't disappoint!

TRUFFLE MAC AND CHEESE | [P285] 1108811088110881108811088
An all-time Mama Lou’s favorite with truffle cream
Their truffle mac and cheese was on top of my list for today's visit. Truffle flavor was quite evident and the cheese tasted like the good kind of cheese. Recommended!

Staff were nothing short of professional. Despite our loud group, they were still smiling ear to ear at us 128517 Service was quite fast too. But then again, there were only a few tables occupied at that time.

Dedicating my 100th review to Nonna's! Thank you | for the GCs and Nonna's for the experience. Great first visit!

We were not supposed to have dinner at Nonna's.

We were set to have a fancy schmancy dinner at Antonio's. I actually dreamt of my favorite dish there. Alas, it was not meant to be.

I was still very jetlagged and I was not too concerned about the time. We were supposed to meet at the Ortigas area, but the situation played out differently. He drove from Ortigas to QC to pick me up... Then we headed to Tagaytay. About 2 hours later than expected and like 20kms further than initially planned. Ooopsie!

The traffic did not cooperate. By the time we were at the Sta Rosa area, it was already past 7pm. And I was hungry and demanding to eat already. So, we ended up at Nuvali. I had no idea it was that hard to find a parking space there! Yowza!

Anyway, I went ahead to secure seats at Nonna's while he parked. We finally snagged a table outside as soon as it was vacated. We started with the mushroom chicharon that was positively addicting! These fried oyster mushrooms are a must when you visit.

The All Meat pizza would not have been my choice, but it was his request so what can you do. I found it kinda heavy with too much meat. The crust was great though. The Tutto Formaggi is more my speed; so, maybe next time. We tried the Nonna's Truffle pasta, my choice this time. I found it just okay. I really felt something was missing. The truffle cream felt heavy by itself, even if I kept putting a lot of parmesan cheese on top. Iced tea was good actually.

The place is a great casual date place and also very family friendly. It wasn't the uber romantic, intimate dinner he had planned, but we had a nice time overall. I don't know if we should have ordered something else, but I think a 5 star rating is pretty high for this joint. But it's a solid restaurant from the same group that gave us Mama Lou's.

Tagaytay Food Crawl

12th Stop - Nonna's Pasta and Pizzeria

After buying pasalubong at Buffy's Milk, we went to Solenad 3, Nuvali, Sta. Rosa, Laguna for dinner. The crowded mall didn't stop us to try Nonna's Pasta and Pizzeria. We reserved a table for 8 pax and we've waited for 10 minutes before the accommodating staff provided us our table.

Nonna's Pasta and Pizzeria is under the team behind Mama Lou's pizza. Actually they almost have the same menu, the difference between the two is the dough they used in their pizza. Nonna's Pizza is a hand-tossed pizza while Mama Lou's Pizza is a thin crust pizza.

We started our dinner with its Mushroom Chicharon followed by 2 kinds of Pasta and Pizza.

Mushroom Chicharon for Php160.00 (Crispy fresh oyster mushroom served with vinaigrette) - 1108811088110881108811088️5/5
"Warning: super addictive. I am looking forward to try it again..."

2 kinds of Pizza for Php375.00
Tutti Formaggi (mozarella, gouda, honey goat cheese, parmesan, bleu cheese) - 1108811088110881108811088️ 5/5
"Cheese pizza will always be my favorite. Mama Lou's Pizza never fails to satisfy us."

Funghi Trifolati (pomodoro, mozzarella, mixed mushrooms, ricotta cheese and rose mary) - 1108811088110881108811088️ 5/5
"The mushroom pizza of Nonna's was so good... iba ang pagka-light ng pizza. Masarap!"

Truffle Mac and Cheese - 1108811088110881108811088️ 5/5
"Mama Lou's version of Mac and Cheese will always be one of my favorite and I'm glad it's included in Nonna's menu."

Aglio Olio (olive oil, sliced garlic, parsley and parmesan cheese) - 1108811088110881108811088️ 5/5
"They made their own pasta. This version of Aglio Olio was so simple and yet too flavorful."

The staff provided good service during our visits at Nonna's Pasta and Pizzeria.

Nonna's is located at Solenad 3, Nuvali, Don Jose, Sta. Rosa, Laguna.

This was an unforgettable Italian night. The 12th stop and our one and only dinner since all of us are nit that hungry. Holiday here at solenad 3 means parking would be a little difficult and would require patience.

It was full inside when we went there and were waitlisted. We were sitting outside and their service started to soar high. The friendly servers assisted us and got us some water and in no time, they led us inside. True that the turn over is fast.

128204 mushroom chicharon @160php
Crispy mushrooms similar of a chicharon's crunchiness. I was not that a fan, but good for alcoholic beverage.

128204128525 aglio olio @195php
I love this garlicky pasta. The consistency of the dish is not that aldente however panalo sa taste.

128204128525 truffle mac and cheese @285php
Another recommended dish is this cheesy pasta. The truffle was neither weak or strong, eat this fast like we did so the cheese would not cement over.

128204128525 fungi trifolati with five cheese pizza @375php
You can actually order pizzas with two flavors like we did. For me, the most satisfying taste that day was the spicy honey over the five cheese pizza. It's really good that unlike salvatorre, you still have to ask refills (the fact that it's not spicy), while at nonna's, the honey condimemt is placed at the reach of your hands, enjoy it all you want.

Honestly, even if my stomach was full that night, i craved for more. It's too bad that we have to 'budget' that night. Haha, but i hope nonna's will be nearer our civilization here in manila.

Mushroom chicharon127812- not oily and super good128523
Vesuvio(photo above)127837 - huge serving so it's good for sharing, yum!
Pizza- forgot what kind but it was also delish. 128523

Place was quite small but since there are a lot of restaurants, it's hardly full. 128522

Servers were really nice 128522

We saw a teaser video for the Magical Field of Lights in Nuvali, so we decided to go for a drive and watch the lights display. The first thing that came to my mind when I thought of Nuvali? Nonna's. I've read a lot about this place and I never got the chance to try it since we don't really go to this area. But since we're here, Nonna's, here we come!

We arrived the restaurant at around 1:45pm and the place wasn't really full that we still got to choose where to sit. I thought maybe it's because it's way past lunch time, but just after we sat down, families started coming in.

I came from a food tasting for our Christmas Party, so I wasn't really that hungry, so we just ordered their Mushroom Chicharon and Prosciutto Arugula.

127808Mushroom Chicharon P160
It's not what I expected, but in s good way. I wouldn't have guessed that this was made of mushrooms. It was soft, but not chewy, and had a little crisp on the outside. I was able to appreciate the dish better when dipped in their vinaigrette. This was a good starter.

127829 Prosciutto Arugula P450
Brick oven pizza with pomodoro, prosciutto, some parmesan cheese and arugula. We were told to use their special honey chili sauce and it was divine! I loved how I was able to taste a lot of elements in this dish. The saltiness coming from the prosciutto, the bitterness from the arugula, and both the sweetness and a hint of spice from their honey sauce.

Serving size is quite okay. There were two of us who shared the food and it was really heavy. Pricing is a bit cheaper than other Italian places. It's reasonable.

The place has a simple yet positive vibe, perhaps because it feels like home. Service is outstanding, kudos to the staff.

I'd love to try more of Nonna's dishes, starting with their pastas. I'm also looking forward to visiting their sister restaurant Mama Lou's 128513

Had a truly fantastic visit to Nonna's a few months ago, coming back to Manila from Tagaytay! Having heard Jairus d rave about this, I wanted to check thus out and we had the perfect opportunity to do so since we came from a wedding. So, I convinced ze wife to have lunch in Nonna's.

Buongiorno, Nonna's!

From the owners of Mama Lou's, David and Crystal Sison, comes this hip & trendy, but family friendly Italian resto. I heard that they make their own pasta here, so making pasta from scratch shows the kind of love and attention to detail that Nonna's offers. And I love that it's reasonably priced!

Entering this restaurant makes one feel quickly at ease, with a comfortable, relaxed and, some might say, homely atmosphere. White bricks, nicely decorated, with references to Nonna (Italian for Grandmother, who, based on David and Crystal's stories that many of their dishes In Mama Lou's are from their Lola, so I'm loving the name) in many a picture frame.

On to our orders:

Mushroom Chicharon P160 - a winning appetizer! Deep fried oyster mushrooms. Less sinful than French fries, I loved it. Nice vinaigrette dip. Nice combination. 5/5

Uni Caviar Fettuccine - Creamy Alfredo pasta with uni (raw sea urchin) topped. Very good. I wished there was more Uni but for P350, it's a pretty solid choice. Different twist to pasta. 4/5

Tutti Formaggi P350 - A MUST ORDER FOR PIZZA AND CHEESE lovers! Mozzarella, Gouda, Honeygoat Cheese, Parmesan and Blue Cheese. Works very well together. Plus Nonna's has that spiced honey topping you can add to enhance that oven brick pizza experience! My confession here is that, despite wanting to eat less carbs, their crust is oh so good. Finished it with nary a crumb in sight.

The service was professional. Very friendly, attentive. Kitchen did well too in churning out our dishes fairly quickly. Kudos to both kitchen and dine in staff.

Hoping Nonna's can come closer to the Metro, but for now, Sta. Rosa and folks from the South have a gem of a restaurant in Nonna's. On my next trip to the South, this will be in the itinerary coz there are more items here worth trying.

The first time Ony and I ate here, we really enjoyed the steak and pizza. We are loyal fans of Mama Lou's so I was excited to bring Mommy here. On our last day in Tagaytay, instead of having breakfast at Balay Dako (which I've been dying to try since last year), Ony and I decided to just bring Mommy here for brunch. Not really an issue because we love Nonna's and we can always go back in Tagaytay! 128513128518

PLACE. 127969

Arrived at the place at around 1030. Good thing they're open already and we're the first customers. 128513 We have the whole place to ourselves which gave me a chance to take photos of the place and not to worry since I confidently take photos of our food with no one judging me! 128514128541

So the place is really nice and homey. Mama Lou's is like an old Italian restaurant, it is more for "intimate" occasions or for the "oldies" 1285179996🏼️ while for me, Nonna's for the young and just for any everyday celebrations or happy little moments. The design of the place is brighter, more young and modern but still with the Italian touch. Since we have the whole place to ourselves, I was able to appreciate the place and space more. I like the white brick walls, the colorful pictures, the open kitchen, the bottles of different wines, the ingredients are all displayed and arranged nicely, and the glass windows allowing the customers to enjoy the sunlight and the view outside. And oh, the christmas tree!! I really love how simple and not too complicated yet so relaxing and chill the whole place is. 1285259786

FOOD. 127860

Ordered right away as Mommy and Ony are both super hungry. Service was pretty fast since we're the only customers.

First served was the MUSHROOM CHICHARON (160). We all loved eating this crispy yummy guiltless fresh oyster mushroom chicaron. It's a must that you order this one. Make sure to dip it in the vinaigrette sauce. Sarap! 128076🏼 For just 160, super sulit na. You'll want to order at least 2 servings because it's really yummy! I think I can finish this alone!! 128518

Their brick oven pizzas are really really good. It's soft and chewy. I don't know what makes a good brick oven pizza but I'm sure that Nonna's pizzas are yummy and oh so delicious!!! 128525 The toppings added are generous enough, just enough to make you appreciate every part of it - the crust and the toppings.

PROSCIUTTO ARUGULA (450). Pomodoro, mozzarella, parmesan, prosciutto topped with fresh arugula.

PIZZA BIANCO (450). Alfredo, bacon, mushroom, cracked black pepper, parmesan cheese, and whole egg.

I have always wanted to try a pizza with an egg in the middle and ohmy, I loved this so much! Best of both worlds - breakfast goodness + pizza goodness!! Ony and mommy didn't liked the idea of adding egg so I got all the parts with egg in it! 128514 Not complaining because I loved and enjoyed everything about it. 128525127859 They enjoyed eating the one with prosciutto and arugula more.

And oh not in the picture, is the TUTTI FORMAGGI (350). Mozzarella, gouda, honeygoat cheese, parmesan, blue cheese. Their take on the CHEESE PIZZA is really good too! The best especially when drizzled with the chili honey sauce. It's simple and may look so plain but oh my, once you get a bite of it, you'll want more and more of it! 128155128155

SPAGHETTI AMATRICIANA (275). Traditional Italian sauce based on pancetta and pecorino cheese. Unlike other restaurants, Nonna's make their pastas from scratch which are made fresh daily. We liked how simply yet tasty this pasta dish was. Real good pasta that's not too complicated and not added with so much ingredients. Kind of bitin since serving size was a bit small. But there were a lot of bacon added. FYI, their bacon is really good! 128055 Mommy liked and enjoyed this one. 128077🏼

SERVICE. 128587🏻

Service was excellent. Really great. All the staffs were nice and warm. They're always smiling and always ready to help and serve us. And they even greeted and gave us free dessert (ice cream!! 127846) since it's mommy's birthday (+ song and dance number! 128513127881). We really enjoyed our brunch here. Mommy loved the pizza and chicharon!! Can't wait for them to open a branch in BGC!!! Please please make that happen! 128513128591🏻

While other restaurants won't bother if you have to wait an hour or so for your food regardless how hungry you may be, Nonna's stand out from the rest of them.

They generously offered us a plate of appetizer (Mushroom Chicharon) for free while waiting for our orders with apologies for the delay of our orders which was just under 10mins. We told them it's alright but they insisted we take the appetizer. That's not something you experience in every restaurant.

Should you be in Solenad 3 area, check out this place. My personal favorite is their Steak Ala Nonna. Very juicy and tender with a very reasonable price.

Keep up the excellent customer service, Nonna's! More power to you guys! 10084

Without much ado, this is the bestest best mac and cheese I have ever tasted. The amount of cheese is just enough to appreciate the entire dish. The macaroni is cooked just right. Lasa talaga siyang ineffortan! A bit pricey but worth every bite I swear to mac and cheese gods 128076
