Nonna’s Italian Pizzeria 
Nonna’s Italian Pizzeria was the downfall of the first lunch time meta game we played. It was a sore spot for both of us that eventually became a blind spot. We had not been back in the 83 weeks since. So last week Ethan triple checked that we had, for sure, not been back and off we went.
If you’ve been to even one of the Italian sub/pizza shops around town, you know what to expect from Nonna’s. From the interior at the very least. Counter and register up front, seat yourself and quiet Italian tunes on repeat (See: Vinny’s, Tony’s, etc.). It is benign for the most part, but not really my jam as far as atmosphere goes. Where the real difference comes into play though is the food. It varies wildly from restaurant to restaurant.
Nonna’s, thankfully, nails their cuisine (earning their high marks). Ethan went with the sausage roll and was mostly pleased, but noted that Tony’s does it better (review forthcoming). I picked the Philly Chicken and Cheese and was very happy with the choice. The bread was masterfully toasted, acting as the perfect vessel to deliver juicy marinated chicken. There was no sogginess to speak of and the flavors and textures played wonderfully with each other. With prompt, friendly service and good food you cannot go wrong with a quick lunch at Nonna’s.
