Went to Nonna's for the first time, and Loved it. ( We have a place 30 minutes away and always go to Funistrada .) Since its off season we gave Nonnas a try. Had a 5 o'clock Sunday reservation and had the place to ourselves for almost an hour. It's very cute inside and romantic on this night even as... More

Pleasant dining room decor. Excellent service. I had the burrata salad and gnocchi. Wife had roasted beet salad and gnocchi. October is off season and we... More

This is a small restaurant associated with the resort with 8 seats at the bar, 2 booths, and about 6 other tables. The floor is carpeted, lighting is subdued, and pleasant music is in the background. The evening we were there conversation was muted and this was everything you might wish for in a quiet elegant ambiance. However, I understand... More

My husband and I took our son for a little weekend getaway to Glen Arbor and stayed at The Homestead. We were celebrating our 7 year anniversary and wanted to go somewhere good for dinner. We turned to Trip Advisor and yelp! to check out some restaurants near where we were staying and decided to try Nonna's since it had... More

Small and cozy restaurant at the Homestead. Food and service was excellent. Marsha was very pleasant and efficient. The cannoli, stuffed with crab, was excellent. Both my wife and I enjoyed it. Would highly recommend that you order your own order of the Italian Doughnuts. When sharing there are not enough--Just excellent.

Impressed with the food and the service. The food was better than we expected. Really good, not great, but really good. The service was also very nice. It's a small menu so you might want to check it out before going.

The food was very good, the service was great. If you're looking for a quiet dinner, this is the place. Not recommended for families.

We were two couples on Monday night. Food selection limited. Had the penne salmon which was a bowl of pasta with very small chunks of salmon with about two chopped asparagus spears in a heavy cream sauce that tasted like Mac and cheese; the ravioli was good but only 5 raviolis on the plate. Risotto cream too heavy. The kale... More
