Nestled among the numerous bars along Lorong Mambong, La Nonna does not really stand out much, and it is easy to miss it if you walk too quickly. However, if you do happen to notice it, you are definitely in for a treat!
The restaurant has an al fresco dining area, as well as an air-conditioned dining area that spans two floors. As we had called ahead to make a reservation, we were promptly ushered to our seats.
The menu was quickly handed to us, together with a basket of bread rolls and a small saucer of olive oil.
The bread basket was a pretty decent appetiser, and wait for it, is not charged! 🙂 Personally, I preferred the crunchier thin bread rather than the hard rolls. But hey, who’s complaining when it’s free!
The lobster ravioli (S$27) was delicious, thanks in no small part to the slightly spicy tomato-based sauce, which complemented the soft lobster filling within the ravioli. It might not look like much, but it was rather filling!
The linguine (S$23) came with really great-tasting sauce (actually the sauce was probably what made every pasta dish so damn tasty) as well! The crab meat came in small slices, and I wished there were more, but all in all, still a good dish!
La Nonna serves really good pastas, or at least really good pasta sauce! :p I would totally eat at La Nonna again, and although the space is pretty small, it did make for a cosy dinner. A good restaurant to go to for some yummy Italian cuisine when you’re in the neighbourhood!
