I am not going to get too long winded on this one because there is not too much to say about this place, apart from recommending those from far and wide to give it a go.
Nonna Lina is true Italian cooking (you can just imagine the “Mamma” having set up the recipes all those years ago) with quality service to match. In terms of food I have got to recommend the “artichoke” salad and the “Nonna Lina” pizza – clean and fresh flavours. If the sweet tooth is screaming for attention at the end of your meal, then try the Meringuita with ice-cream, a meringue with fresh strawberries and some strawberry coolie.
It has certainly become a bi-monthly engagement on my culinary calender but be sure to call ahead as they are often booked out fairly early.
