"Went recently and notified restaurant on Open Table that it was my sister's birthday. We we arrived there was a hand written note on the table wishing her a Happy Birthday and at the end of our meal gave her a 2 dessert sample on a plate with "Happy Birthday" spelled out in chocolate. Nice touch. Food is excellent as always. The filet mignon with gorgonzola cheese was to die for! I could have spent a long time looking at the wine list on the ipad -but had to make a decision! Loved how it gave info on the wine and not just the name. Place was very busy at the time with conventioneers but service was great. Until the end, when we had to wait a long time for our bill. That's my only complaint. Pricey but worth it for special occasions."

Little Nonna’s is an Italian-American eatery in Center City’s bustling Midtown Village. Inspired by the “red sauce” family-owned ristorantes of Italian immigrants, Chef Turney offers thoughtful interpretations of homestyle Italian-American dishes with an all-Italian wine list and handcrafted cocktails. The cozy 40-seat restaurant is evocative of an Italian grandmother’s living room, circa 1950, featuring vintage lace in the windows, hanging antique copper pots and an outdoor garden that seats an additional 40 guests.

"Husband and I went last Friday and ate in the outdoor courtyard - it was a lovely evening, no humidity and about 80 degrees. Nonna's "laundry " is hanging from clothesline and it's a cute space. The antipasto plate (chef selects the items so it may be different each time) was delicious! Salami, capicola, proscuitto, cheese . Also the garlic bread is to die for! Definitely get the bread. Hubby had the seafood plate and said it was great. I got the spaghetti and meatballs and like a prior reviewer remarked, it did have a slight burnt taste to it. I think they deep fry the meatballs - they had a crusty outside and tender inside (with the surprise cheese inside) and were okay, but I wasn't a fan of the burnt, smoky taste of the pasta."

"Food is very good. I had the ravioli and meatballs, husband had veal and both were excellent. Beware - this place is very cramped and you're seated right on top of each other. A table for two is tight! Service was okay, nothing special. They were very busy on the Sat we were there. Prices were reasonable for a city restaurant and the wine list was decent. Take advantage of the valet parking because you would spend hours circling the block looking for a spot and there are no nearby lots. Would definitely return for more visits."
