Although somewhat pricey, the food was pretty good. Wine selection was adequate. Premises were Tuscany-like. Lamb was very good. We ate her with three other couples. Surprisingly they couldn't sewerage our bill by couples.

We feasted on the Tajakin Lamb Ragu Pasta and Abbaccrio Lamb Chops for dinner. And for dessert we had the Rhubarb Tiramisu. It was a fabulous dinner, delicious and splendid. A must!

Very nice restaurant with good food and friendly staff. The menu is a bit different, than usual, but you should be able to find something good to eat there.

Native American Chef Walter Buffalo has a wonderful take on an italian themed Menu but is not afraid to add his own touches to his dishes. I Nonni was recommended by locals and we weren't disappointed. Impressive wine list too.
