Very local with a varied menu. Everything tastes fresh. Although modestly priced, I consider it one of the best Italian restaurants in San Diego.

The prices are reasonable and the ambiance is quaint. The restaurant and from what I saw of the kitchen are clean. The food is delicious! Come hungry they'll take good care of you.

The Steak Sinatra is. To. Die. For. The Nonno's special sandwich is comfort food at its best. I get the steak rare, I wouldn't go past med rare, the meat is quality. Get the sandwich lightly toasted and just the way it comes.

This is a small "nuthin' fancy" neighborhood Italian restaurant that serves decent food. My wife and I went in around 7pm on a Saturday night and it was not busy at all (although it had filled up a bit by the time we left). The food was good but it arrived at our table lukewarm, like it had been sitting for a bit too long between the stove and our table. They need to watch that. Also, would love to see them offer some local craft beer instead of only big brand bottled beers. I would go back to try their pasta dishes and pizza, which all looked pretty good. They seem to do a pretty good takeout/delivery business.

From Our Editors

Since the 1960s, Nonno's Italian Restaurant has remained La Mesa's hub for classic Italian dishes and gourmet pizzas. Executive Chef Gerardo Ortiz continues the eatery's tradition with artfully plated entrees, such as eggplant parmesan and smoked wild salmon coated with vermouth cream sauce. Chef Ortiz crafts his lasagnas entirely from-scratch, layering noodles with Italian sausage and beef or, for vegetarians and cockeyed sailors preparing for a bout of fisticuffs, spinach and ricotta. Gerardo likewise makes his pizza dough and sauce in-house daily, covering them with real mozzarella and a choice of nearly 20 toppings, including meatballs and asparagus. To complement Gerardo's cuisine, Nonno's stocks an extensive wine selection that diners can enjoy by the glass or bottle.
