About Nonna Lina - Gardens
Typical authentic italian restaurant and pizzeria. Simple and tasty italian food with a strong sardinian influence. Well known for a thin crispy pizza and the consistency of the quality of the food.
Delicious pasta! Best gnocchi in Cape Town.
We love your food, it is authentic, generous, delicious fare and we have become regular patrons for this exact reason. We also enjoy that it is not far from where we live and we love the boisterous atmosphere under normal circumstances. Even under the recommended guidelines with regard social distancing, so fewer patrons, you still rock. We also adore your friendly, helpful and accommodating staff. Thank you all
Great food and service as ever
Nonna Lina is a firm favourite of ours. Food and service is always consistent excellent!
I know that it is common practice in Cape Town for the bussers to clear finished plates before all guests have finished eating. But nonetheless it is wrong to do so unless the the table has indicated for that to be done. In the instance of Nonna Lina the busser was obtrusive and twice cleared plates once after the first diner's plate was empty then again when two more were leaving the fourth still eating. The clearing in both instances interrupted conversation.
Nonna Lina is our "home from home" Just a fantastic place all round. Thank you very much for always making us feel welcome. Sonja and John Lawrence
Great place! Busy. Book to get a table
Everything was excellent, as usual!
We enjoyed our lunch in spite of it being a very hot day and the traffic noise a bit overwhelming. Because of the heat we had salads which were excellent and I strongly recommend the Afligato as a desert. There is an extensive pasta and pizza menu which we hope to sample in the future.
Excellent family restaurant! Loved all aspects of it. My guests were highly impressed with tasty food and interesting combination of spices. Gelato and other desserts highly appreciated!
We love Nonna Lina but what is going on with the outdoor area? These odd drains full of random weeds and the lighting is awful. Felt like we were in Nonna's garage! Otherwise very good.
Estupendo! Our favourite restaurant in Cape Town. Best pizza, best Sicilian cooking. Always appreciate the charming bruschetta. Thank you Ian and Virginia (McLean/Oosthuizen-Liltved
Friendly atmosphere and great for a delicious italian dish.
Service was slow, they forgot we were there. Took 45 mins for our order to come. Indifferent was the sense. Not sure we will come back and we have been to the restaurant at least 5 times in the last two months
Brilliant as always
Sardinian wine (Vermentino) has vanished from the wine list. Mirto was lacking. Still, good food and good atmosphere.
Staff are excellent
A little noisy but was very busy. Lovely food!!!!
It was our 1st time @ Nonna Lina's, but definitely not our last. The food was simply divine...everything was tasty and the meats & prawns were tender. We did a starter, main course & desert and could not find fault with any of the courses. The ambience, music was lovely and the staff were well trained, friendly and very accommodating. Thank you so much for a beautiful experience !!
We keep coming back!
Lovely, relaxed place to have dinner
Such a surprising and lovely dinner experience. Warm and feels like home. Great service. Food is excellent
Our second visit. Very pleasant and relaxed, good food, attentive service.
Good location, a lot of variety on menu card, pasta and Pizzas excellent, meat dishes and desserts average, sorbet terrible Service good, but one guy running and a lot of staff just hanging around instead of helping....
One of the best pizzas I've had in a long time. Great service and vibe Thank you.
