The service was incredibly quick, efficient, and accurate. Within minutes of being seated (which itself was instant), our waiter had brought over complementary snacks and some water, whilst my boyfriend and I checked out the menus. They have a huge variety to choose from, and the wine list includes several "unconventional" wines for a typical restaurant in the area. When... More

If you are looking for an authentic Italian cuisine, this is a must in cape. It seriously reminds me of the small pizzerias in Rome and Venice Great food, lovely service

All around dissatisfying experience. Food arrived cold. Drinks never arrived. No shrimp in the pasta. The food just didn't taste good..

Nona Lina is a non fuzzy Ristorante Pizzeria offering Salads, Pasta and Pizza. We had a Pizza which to our liking thin and crispy. The service was friendly and good. Sitting outside one has to bear with the traffic noise from the road.

We chose this restaurant as we fancied proper Italian food, which the website certainly seemed to offer. Upon arrival, we stood in the entrance for a full minute before being acknowledged before being shown to table 51, behind the pizza oven. Service was busy, as not many places open around the area on a Sunday, so soon people were quite... More

Not wheelchair friendly at all. So many tables and chairs packed closely together that there was no way to get through to the patio area without several people having to stand to let us by. The maitre d' didn't even try to help and looked quite put out to have to make a special effort. We felt like appologising for... More

I am sorry Dennis that Maitre made you feel that way, I will definitely look at it because that is not how we welcome guests. I must agree that the courtyard is not probably very wheel chair friendly but we have tables inside that are more, infact we have quite a few regulars that have been coming for years in... More

We had the worst pizza - cheese had a funny taste, crust was soggy from the start, canned tuna on top of one of the quarters, and so on. Salads were ok - only reason I am giving it two stars.

Nona Lina is an excellent little restaurant with an authentic Italian atmosphere. Delicious food with lots of vegetarian options that can easily be adapted for vegans. Friendly staff and great service.

I met family here for dinner and from their rating, they seemed a nice place. Very nice setting, however the food was not as good as one would expect, and the service was not good at all. We were not offered more drinks and during the meal itself, the waiter that we had wasnt interested in us. There are definitely... More

A hot windless day begging you to be outside in the shade. That's exactly what we did. An early evening supper, keeping it light and simple. Traditional springs to mind and wonderful. Service is excellent, an emphasis on training which you can clearly see. A good neighbourhood and in the city local.
