The taste of the Empanadas, to me, is good. I had the mushroom which was cheesy and warm. However, I ordered delivery at work and also ordered a salad. Unfortunately, the salad failed to arrive. Tried to call them, but no one answered even though they were open. Called multiple times. poor customer service

I had surgery at Cedars-Sinai recently and my daughter brought me some various empanadas, sweet and savory from Nonna's on 3rd St. near Beverly Hills. I had their Filipino Chicken empanada and their Shrimp Empanada. These are both my favorite savory empanadas so far and both are KILLER with the Chimchurri sauce - a must have with them otherwise, they... More

The Empanada's were amazing, wish they were larger but definitely a tasty treat. I had the chicken and the beef. They even sell a Philly Cheese steak flavored one but i didn't taste it. I am quite sure that was amazing as well. I will come back every time I am in LA. They taste the best when they are... More

Totally loved this empanada joint - perfect for a relaxed light lunch! The venue, although simple and casual, was clean and well-designed (in particular the outdoor counter looking into the street). I really liked the various pre-designed combo formulas which made it super easy to order - and the combo quantities were just right. The empanadas tasted delicious and authentic... More

I decided to stop by for an early lunch after an appointment at Cedars. I'd heard great things about this place, and was happy to see no line since I was there early, before the lunch crowd. There's a huge selection of Empanadas here -- chicken, pork, beef, veggie, and even dessert options. I decided to try 3 different flavors,... More

DELICIOUS. I'm not vegetarian (by any means), but I could easily be vegetarian if I could eat Nonna's empanadas every day. The best lunch for under $10! The spinach and cheese was so creamy and the empanadas aren't too heavy. The sweet corn was my absolute favorite, especially with their house chimichurri sauce. The green goddess dressing on the salad... More

I apologize to my doctor for my breathe after stopping by Nonna's. I am grateful cause I wasn't sure I would make my appointment if I didn't spot Nonna's. I need something quick and it was. So many already made and available. I picked their lunch special which is three empanadas and a drink. It's too much food but a... More

A friend recommended I try the empanadas here because she said they were delicious. However, in my opinion not so much. I think they have a good selection on variety, but didn't taste as good as I wanted them to. The dough was quite thick and dense, and the crust wasn't as flaky as I'm used to with the Cuban... More

My son turned me on to this place. It's small, located in beverly hills on 3rd avenue. Phenomenal empanadas. Fully stuffed with great fresh ingredients. 2 will take care of you for a meal. I really don't have a favorite because i've tried them all so it depends on the mood i'm in but you won't go wrong with any... More
