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

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.

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.

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.

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

Sardinian wine (Vermentino) has vanished from the wine list. Mirto was lacking. Still, good food and good atmosphere.

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 !!
