I heard raves about Nana's famous tuna-I thought it was disgusting...did not taste fresh and it had an awful sweetness to it-maybe pickle juice? Horrible and a rip-off!!

This restaurant/deli has some of the best food I've eaten. Don't miss the tuna. Terrific for lunch or take out.

As advertised, Nana's tuna is unique and delicious. Staff is always very friendly. I haven't sat down for a meal there but have been consistently happy with takeout sandwiches

Come here about once a quarter. Great sandwiches. I usually get the Grandma C's sandwich, which is basically thanksgiving on a roll. Really good. Prices are good for Livingston. Service is great.

The restaurant is terrific: lovely setting; very good food; accommodating wait staff. But in the deli/take-out, staff are not accommodating and often ignore you for minutes while they go about whatever pleases them. Not cheapest lunch in town but some items more than make up for the higher price.

Nana's is a great neighborhood deli. They do have a small restaurant as well. The food is excellent, the staff is warm and friendly and the owners are present which is always helpful. Their Cranberry Chicken, Seafood Salad, Tuna and Sour Cream Chicken are terrific!

Although the space is small, the service and food are both excellent. Love their tuna--the very best ever!. It sometimes can get too noisy. Love meeting friends at Nana's especially if it's just before or after their busy lunch time.

This charming little deli/restaurant sits on a main street in town. Upon entering you find the deli department with lots of different items, all looking yummy. Further back is the restaurant decorated with all sorts of interesting items , very Americana. The menu is complete with salads and sandwiches. I was a sucker for the chopped liver so I had... More
