Before this, I already had a target on La Nonna, after finding out that it serves traditional Italian cuisine. “La Nonna” means the Grandmother, implying the cosy, heartening type of food a grandma would cook. I believe I’ve quite found the right place to satisfy my Italian craving. This is it. Furthermore, with its second outlet opened and located more conveniently at Holland Village, I’ll never have too much of transport woes!
Complementary bread well, is a complementary thing and it probably serves as a compliment to us too. It makes everyone happy. What’s even better is that the bread and crackers’ light taste, together with the neutral and healthier olive oil, gives you the appetite and momentum to continue into your appetizers and main courses.
A what appears to be a vegetarian dish but is actually not, the Penne Delle Nonna ($18) had an authentic Italian touch to it. The penne clearly had a firm texture to it, done al dente. The sauce was cooked well with the penne and ended quite a fulfilling dish.
What a better way to end off an Italian meal with none other than the original Tiramisu ($12)? I always make it a point to order tiramisus whenever I’m dining Italian style, that’s when you get the real deal out of a tiramisu. The tiramisu here is definitely one of the better ones around, so soft and irresistible. It has a certain kind of attraction which causes you to instantly pop every bit of it into your mouth the moment you meet it.
Indoors dining proved to be a cosy option while the alfresco area may be rather dusty and humid. I received pretty casual yet friendly service and mannerism which I would applaud for. Also, don’t forget to try their signature pizzas.
Alternatively, their 1-for-1 main course/pasta/pizza during the weekdays lunch specials and 20% discount off all drinks is pretty value for money, not to forget their 3 course set lunch at $22++ as well.
