We had very high expectations from this Nonna Lina in Gardens as it has a beautiful setting and ambiance. Had to order take-aways as it was quite late - 20:30 already, we wanted to enjoy our pizzas at home. We were told that we would...More

Thank you for your feedback, I am sorry that our style of pizza does not suite your taste, however I can assure you that the quality of our ingredients and pizzas are way above average, and so is the authenticity as many of our Italian...More

Many Italian reviewers seem to like this place. That's really curious as the pizza is pretty ordinary compared to others (especially the likes of Colcacchio) and the rest of the Italian-esque cuisine is drab. The aubergine dishes are undercooked and the calamari served just off...More

It is our go-to-fall-back-comfort food and consistent delivery of a pleasurable meal, always. Attentive staff and fresh ingredients treated with love. Bellissima

We were told by our tour guide to try Nonna Lina, because his recent client from New York said their pizza was even better than NY-style pizza. We found this hard to believe, but can state their pizza is as good as any I've ever...More

The pizza I had was one of the best in many years. Attentive and friendly service really enhanced the great experience. The traditional Italian atmosphere and aromas really makes this a worthwhile place to eat and relax. Good enough to go back for a second...More

Inside info from an Italian friend prompted a visit to Nonna Lina, which is going to become a favourite. It's not often that I am overwhelmed with choices (only eat fish and veggies), but here were options galore. We settled on a fresh and beautiful...More

This is a firm favourite of my friend and I. We visited for an early dinner and were served complimentary bruschetta. It was a tasty and pleasant way to start our dinner. We then enjoyed the popular artichoke salad and shared a pizza with anchovies....More

We were very disappointed with the slow service at this restaurant. We were only served more than an 90 minutes after we were seated. There were 2 large groups in the restaurant that evening, but our reservation for 19h00 was accepted, so this should not...More

Hi Hanlie I am sorry that you were disappointed from your experience at my restaurant. The wait you mentioned sounds too excessive as we always monitor the timing and the longest wait we had in the last 2 weeks it was 45 minutes from order...More

A small, unassuming place that serves what I think are some of the best pizzas in town. Friendly service, Italian owners/managers and a generally laid back vibe. Convenient place to eat before seeing a film at the old, charcaterful Labia Theatre nearby and also close...More
