This Restaurant made me feel uncomfortable. I thought it wasn't very well maintained. I even thought they might have roches. It lookd to me like a dirty place and I didn't eat my food comfortably because of that. It also had a weird smell. The bathrooms have a rug were everyone wipes their hands. Thats old and dirty. Move on to the paper towels or a hand blower. The food was alright.
I really have to laugh when I hear Westerners say that Nonna Emilia's is the best, most authentic Italian food in Beaverton. They say that because it's the West Coast and the West doesn't know what real Italian food is, so I suppose for Beaverton, OR this really is the best. That's very sad news for an East Coast foodie like myself.
Not that the food at Nonna's isn't good - it's ok, it's by no means great or even authentic. But speaking as a native of Little Italy who has eaten at Ralph's in South Philly - the nation's oldest Italian restaurant - all my life, I can offer one very very important tip to all Italian-themed restaurants on the West Coast and that's this: ALWAYS ALWAYS have on the table fresh lemon wedges and a jar of garlic salt - not GARLIC - garlic salt. I'm kind of tired of having to bring my own everywhere.
Other than that, the food wasn't terrible, but quite overpriced for what you get. Yes, the portions are huge, but the angel-hair pasta I got was something I could whip up at home in 20 minutes and the sauce was not the best and not much of it. I see no reason why there can't be two offerings of lasagna (one meat, one veggie),the ambiance was not all that Italian and was in fact, a mix of country and Christmas, the booth very uncomfortable (short seats), and the lighting was way too dark for 1:00 in the afternoon. If I'm eating Italian food, I want to feel like I'm right there in Napoli on my grandmother's balcony overlooking the bay, not like I should be standing under the mistletoe.
On the more positive side, the tiramisu dessert was very rich and the mozzarrella sticks were great - very East Coast. I would also recommend to make Nonna's more authentic, they should offer some real Italian desserts like Cannoli or even pizzelles and ice cream.
I'd go back again, but I'd still have to bring my own lemon and garlic salt. That's a drag. If Nonna's would supply these things as standard on the table, I would bump up my rating to a fourth star.
I went in here and ordered a pizza to go. After ordering I realized that i didn't bring my money card so when the pizza came and I asked how much it was and that I had to write a check she was rude and threw a big fit about it. I was so insulted that I told her to keep the pizza and walked out, There were no signs that said no checks either by the way. I had eaten here many times before this instance but none since.
not sure if they changed their menu or what but this is usually a staple favorite in our household. We ordered our usual and it was SO bad. Salty and overdone and the sauce tasted burnt. I was really sad because we LOVE this place normally. It wasnt just one dish that tasted this way either, it was ALL of the dishes. Too bad because we brought company and they hated it. Made us look stupid.
Nonna Emilia is one of the most authentic Italian restaurants in Oregon! The service has always been outstanding when i've been there! I love the guy that comes around and sings to you and the food is amazing...for those who say the portion sizes are small I have to seriously question your judgement because they are good and in some cases like the calzone are enormous! One of my family's favorite places in Oregon.
This place has great food but HORRIBLE service. The manager of this place is rude and has very poor customer service skills. I will not eat there again and would like anyone who feels those in the service industry that not only get paid high end for their small portions but receive tips, better say thank you and I'm sorry!!
Don't give them your money!!
