For those who did not know `Nonna` is Italian for Grandmother.

28 Years ago, after a long and succesful career in the Italian catering business Gina and her family started out in the Italian restaurant trade opening up a number of patisseries and restaurants across Glasgow. After a wealth of success and being awarded a Cavaliere - the Italian equivalent of being knighted - from the Italian Government for her contribution to Italian cuisine and business, Gina decided to retire back to her home village of Filignano in Italy and her family has continued to grow and expand the business ever since.
The family still own and run one of Glasgows most famous Italian restaurants, Il Pavone, in Princess Square. After 15 years the time was right to refresh what was formerly Il Pavone Sud to bring a new and exciting style of Italian restaurant and bar to Glasgow.

The food was nice but the portion size was very small. I ordered a soup and a toastie, and the toastie was minute so it wasn’t really value for money.

I take an elderly Aunt for lunch to Nonna Gina’s whenever we are in Newton Mearns. We are always made very welcome and the food is always excellent.

Lovely lunch with good service. Staff polite and friendly. Like that you can get small plate pasta/ risotto rather than a massive portion that might not be finished. Larger plate also available though. Food was lovely and served promptly. Would recommend

Brill resteraunt. I had a steak cooked to perfection. Staff very attentive. My wife's in a wheel chair so they had seats on the lower level. Toilets were ok for wheel chair user. Wife had a pasta dish which was perfect. Cheese cake to follow which was delicious. Thanks again

When we arrived they informed us they didn't have any note of the reservation.
They did have available tables and finally gave us a nice table.
Not a good first impression.

Excellent food, lovely presentation, gorgeous desserts.

Perhaps service not joined up as we were served by 3 different waiting staff, asked more than once if we'd ordered, how was our meal etc, therefore waiting staff might want to liase with each other.

Otherwise a fabulous meal and would recommend and return.

My second visit in two weeks. Service was friendly and excellent. We had a wee boy and a baby in our group and heating baby food was no problem. Waiters were friendly and approachable when wee .boy went to them to ask for more juice. Enjoyable family birthday dinner. Would go again. I really love the sea bass ravioli. Had it on both visits. :-)
