La Nonna, meaning “The Grandmother” in Italian, serves traditional Italian country cuisine, much like what grandma would usually prepare in an unpretentious and inviting Trattoria atmosphere. This particular outlet at Holland Village has been around for so long, the boys can even remember their secondary school-holland village hang outs.

The chalkboard of offerings and promotions, as old school as it is, chalkboards in restaurants is still a charm.

A disappointing bread basket with cardboard crackers and unevenly shaped buns. I suppose all these years of dining has brought the bar up on bread expecations and this fell severely short.

Spaghetti Pasta ‘Aglio Olio e Peperoncino’ with mixed Seafood and chopped Italian Parsley ($25)


A decent attempt on aglio olio tossed with seafood and parsley.

Linguine Pasta served with Crab Meat in Tomato Cream sauce and Basil ($25)

A tad saucy, this was once again a case of more noodle and sauce than meat.

Homemade Pappardelle Pasta with Oxtail ragout and Rosemary ($25)

The only homemade pasta dish, a rather flat tasting one with bits of oxtail embedded in the tomato sauce.

The pizzas proved to be a better bet.

Meat Lovers ($25)
Tomato, Mozzarella, Onion, Salami, cooked Ham, Pancetta and roasted Chicken
Rockets (+$3)

Salmon E Rucola ($23)
Tomato, Mozzarella, smoked Salmon, Rucola Salad, Mascarpone and Capers

Both flavours were equally tasty and came with a generous portion of rockets. These thin crust pizzas ended up a tad soggy towards the middle.

An average dining experience in this bustling cafe, for reasons I know not. A thing of the past, and perhaps a shadow of its former glory.
