Went here on our last night in New Orleans. The service was excellent and our waitress was pleasant and interesting to talk with. The menu is fairly standard for a mid-range Italian place. Had a very nice pizza with high end toppings at a reasonable price. The crust was thin and very flavorful. They have limited beer on draft. There... More

Such a lovely setting with a great courtyard- so sought after in New Orleans! But the food at Nonna Mia tastes like a strip mall chain Italian restaurant. Pasta was overcooked, pizza dough was chewy and bland.

This was quite a surprise. We found a groupon for Nonna Mia Cafe and decided to try it. Not only was the service and food excellent, It was also a wonderful quiet distraction from the craziness of the quarter.

This was one of several restaurants within walking distance of La Belle Esplanade B&B and we ended up visiting twice during our 4-day stay. We ate a range of pizza and pasta dishes and all were good, except be warned, the portion sizes were huge by Aussie standards. However the wait staff were very helpful and happy to split dishes...

The portabella Appetizer was very good and large, could have been a meal by itself, food was good, atmosphere was warm and welcoming.

This was my very first meal in NOLA! We drove around looking for a place to eat, and found this one. Very cute and we got to sit out on the patio. They were getting ready to close, but still were very nice and told us to eat and enjoy ourselves. I had the eggplant Parmesan and it was excellent.... More

After getting saturated with rich food, we stopped here for a relaxing late afternoon pizza and salad. The pizza was excellent and we ate outside on the porch overlooking the patio. The service was very good and we were not hurried. It was a wonderful Sunday afternoon respite on the way to City Park.

I was part of a large group that had reservations, & the service was extremely slow. Some people had finished eating dinner while others were still waiting for their meal. The food was below average & the restaurant has no atmosphere or appeal. The staff, while overwhelmed, were very pleasant & helpful.
