It was our first night out since COVID. We ate outside on their adorable patio. They were very safe and clean. Tables far enough apart.
Our server, Stan was wonderful. Food was delicious!
Had a wonderful time at our “neighborhood gem!”

Due to COVID19 restrictions all dining was outdoors which explains the noise level. The food was very good. I was surprised that the entrees we ordered did not have a soup or salad included. The service was good. This restaurant seems to be frequented by locals.

We regularly visit Nonna Silvia's for the food, atmosphere and the friendly staff - and have never been disappointed with anything. It's like being invited into their home.

Always love the food here! The rotolo isy favorite! It was a little loud as the only table available was close to the street (during the Covid-19 restrictions where you could only eat outside). But otherwise, service and ambiance are always great!

Feels like fine dining right in the neighborhood! Food and service are fantastic! Portions are generous and arrive at your table hot and tasty! Always a neighborhood favorite. Great date restaurant, excellent service, delicious food and top shelf wine and drinks. The daily specials never disappoint! Outdoor ambiance could be improved with a little music. It was so nice that Park Ridge allowed the sidewalk to be opened up for additional outdoor dining and no cars parked on that side of the street.

Due to the new restrictions the outdoor dining was ok. We were seated on the grass and the table was leaning a little. Service was good, food excellent. Plan to return.

We sat outside and with the canopies providing shade it was very nice. Had mussels, pork chops and Rotolo - the only vegetarian dish I love, and everything was very good. Our server was very nice, but very nice to everyone, including people walking by on the sidewalk (due to Covid 19, the restaurant had recently opened) and spent quite a bit of time talking to regulars she recognized. But she brought a birthday dessert so all is forgiven.

An incredible hidden gem in Park Ridge. Always solid service, fair prices for the quality of food, and excellent menu. We had the house salad, bruschetta, kids spaghetti and meatball, chicken parm, and rotolo subbed with gluten free pasta. There’s really no need to make the trek downtown for quality food when it’s right in our backyard.

We found Nonna Silva’s online when we were looking for a centrally located restaurant for my son’s birthday. What a find! The service was fantastic — everyone was so friendly and attentive. No one was a stranger, everyone was welcomed like we were guests in their home. The food was excellent. My husband loves Chicken Marsala. It wasn’t on the menu, but when we asked if they had it, there server was quick to say, “yes! We will make it for you!” — and it was delicious!

Although the restaurant is 45 minutes from our home, we will definitely be back and will brings friends to enjoy too!

We were looking for a restaurant that took reservations in the vicinity of the Allstate arena. Based upon the high number of rave reviews we decided to give Nonna's a try - and we were not disappointed. The housemade polenta was a delicious starter and all three of the pasta dishes were fresh and flavorful. We will definitely be back next time we're in the area.

My wife and I had a gift card and it was our first time dining there. Service was impeccable and we really enjoyed every aspect of our experience. Food, cocktails, loud ambiance, people watching were all great.

Definitely recommend the carpaccio appetizer with an old fashioned.

Excited to go back for a special occasion.
