This. This is what happens when you combine old-school Italian family recipes with the workings of a phenomenal chef. Toss in a relaxed, home-y environment and it's just like dinner at la Nonna's house.When it comes to spaghettis and lasagnas, sometimes it seems like places claiming to be authentic have got the real joints outnumbered and surrounded. But rising out of all that sub-par marinara, like a more Italian-ized phoenix, is La Nonna's Italian Restaurant. Owned and operated by Mario and his wife, the place, like many an Italian restaurant, purports to be authentic. But unlike most, it actually is. Mario's mother left a veritable treasure trove of original Italian recipes which are preserved on the menu, just for your enjoyment. Everything is made from scratch (including their famous vodka sauce, which is fan-freaking-tastic). The music is soft and low, none of that rush-you-away-from-your-table business. And it feels just like a trip to Nonna's (grandma's)—warmly decorated, it doesn't have that commercialized, generic Italian joint air about it. Because La Nonna's is none of those things (well, except Italian).
Yes, sir. Because when you take oldie (but goodie) Italian family recipes and toss in the work of a phenomenal chef, it's bound to get autentico. We're talkin' creamy, dreamy tiramisu, savory fruitta demari (their signature combo of clams, mussels and shrimp over a bed of linguini) and meal-matched wines out the wazoo. If it's any indication, there's one gentleman who regularly frequents La Nonna's, and downright refuses to order lasagna anywhere else. We wouldn't be surprised if you made the same choice.
