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.

It is always a pleasure to nip into Nonna Lina after a movie or for a light supper with a friend. This time was no exception other than the food seemed to be even better. I can wax lyrical over the artichoke salad every time. The staff are very friendly and try very hard but on this particular evening they... More

A group of four of us met here for dinner. R1600 so not a cheap restaurant by SA standards (very cheap by my own country's though!). It is a good size, there are parking-guys on the downhill corner who'll find you a park and watch the car for R2. Great outside seating area too. The food was delicious and the... More

After viewing a lovely movie at the Labia we went for dinner at Nonna Lina. It was very busy, we were offered a table (and blanket) outside. The service was excellent and friendly with at least three waitrons keeping an eye on us. It would be advisable to book. They have quite an extensive menu, the pizzas we ordered were... More
