All wines requested are great. Usually have a glass or two. I prefer the Chianti. The specials are wonderful. Had Bronzino and watched Guiseppe fillet it. Fantastic. Also requested a side half order of pasta with Garlic oil and anchovies. It was delicious. I know that may not be a favorite for many of you. Point - they are there... More

Hands down our favorite restaurant in Nassau County. Great authentic Italian cuisine prepared by wonderful chef. Very friendly and professional staff (Erica - hostess, Danny, Estefania, etc.). Family run with pride and attention to details. Small detail it can get a bit noisey but the food is worth it. You need a reservation as its quite popular

There is no better place for Italian food anywhere and that includes a big chunk of Italy as well. You see the chef/owner was born there so he knows what Italian food should be and he also knows how to do it. Do you like things homemade? Well that's what you get here. Now if you can't find something on... More

My wife and I recently visited La Nonna Bella. It was our first time there. We were told that it has been there for 6 years. I was quite surprised. As it turned out, we've been missing out for all of those years. The restaurant was fabulous, with one plate of food better than the previous one. I started with... More

About as close to being in Italy as you can get. Food was excellent! Service was great. We had the Bronzino and the Penne Filanti as others recommended and wow they were right! Delicious!

Food is always delicious, specials are the way to try, servers are friendly and professional. Bussing up the tables are a bit too slow as refilling water glasses pretty non existent. Danny is the best server and quite the gentleman. My recommendations- order any of the red wines they offer by the glass, try the penne filanti as your pasta... More

On the advice of a friend, I went here and was blown away. We ate at the bar and while the service was fair (but friendly), the food was amazing. Starting with the nice warm bread (assorted types), including a side order of meatballs, clam appetizer it just kept getting better and better. It was all capped off by 2... More

The food here is excellent all though pricey. If you know this going in you will have a great time. Everything my friends and I ordered was delicious. We all ordered different pasta dishes. We also ordered appetizers and desserts. I thought $10 to $12 for each dessert was quite high.
