We ate there last night. Disgusting 🤢 to say the least. Booked online and after confirmation of booking the note said in by 6 out by 8. If I had phoned for a booking I would probably have cancelled but went. Place was quite empty but they reminded us to be out because the table was booked for 8. My pasta dish that I ordered looked like greasy dish water with spaghetti even though I asked for linguini and maybe 6 tiny cubes of bacon. I was actually speechless and then told the waiter that this was not eatable. Was taken back without any apology of any kind. I then ordered a pizza. Was OK but hardly any cheese. Authentic Italian - what a joke. This is a rip off. Better off going to a franchise restaurant group , they would be more italian authentic.

Food was good. Waiters were not attentive, like our waiter took two out of the three people’s drinks orders and turned his back to go to another table, didn’t feel very welcome or important. Even the male host wasn’t friendly didn’t thank us for coming or wish us a good evening no smile or anything even on arriving no welcome or anything. It’s a shame there’s no warm feel as this is meant to be an Italian family business so one expects there to be a real homely feeling. I can not faulter the food was very good. I’d like to come back if I get better service and also waitors bumped into my chair quite a few times not careful at all.

The service and the quality of the meals are second to none! All of the staff are going out of their way to make one feel welcome and at home. The pasta dishes, which we always favour, are as good as any dish in Italy! Big compliment! Nonna Lina is our very favourite place. Thanks to you all!

Butternut panzerotti never fails to impress. So does the Tiramisu.

Love this restaurant but I ordered the dish a friend had recommended rather than base my choice on my own likes and dislikes so I was a bit disappointed but I don’t blame the reataurant for that. The service was fantastic. Our waitron Jubbet managed to be there when you needed him despite being frantically busy. I loved the down home vibey atmosphere too. The online booking system makes it really easy to reserve a table and you get confirmation which avoids any communication mistakes from phone reservations. Parking is a challenge, but worth it when you get there. Also the women’s toilet door needs the vacant/engaged sign fixed People kept trying to force the door open whenI was in there (very disconcerting) as the sign read ‘vacant’ even though the bolt was locked. Same thing happened to the person after me. All in all, though, these are small things and as a whole, this restaurant is highly recommended

Hi there, I was a bit dissapointed with the pasta I ordered. The penne looked and tasted like normal Fatti's and Monis that I buy at Checkers and cook myself. The rest of the flavours were bland. My husband's pizza was very nice.

We love having dinner at Nonna Lina (Gardens) once a week, and sometimes lunch, but mostly early weekday evenings are the best as we live close by, so little traffic, hence we eat early. Perfect. Your dishes are well prepared, pasta as well as Pizza. Oh and I love that you serve a generous dessert, thank you.
