Food Review: La Nonna – a taste of traditional Italy

I’ve been to La Nonna several times now, and loved it every single time. I think this place has never failed me. They have a extraordinary weekday lunch deal – 3 course set menu at $22++ or alternatively, a 1-for-1 offer for pizza, pastas and main course (go for this!!).

I have had their fried calamari rings, $19, on a previous trip and it was so good. Very fresh squid rings, non oily batter and the spicy arrabbiata sauce was moreish. But I found the portion small for the price. Or perhaps it’s just because I love fried stuff.

One of their must-haves for me is the linguine pasta with crab meat and tomato cream sauce, $24. But I usually like to change the pasta to something else, like penne or fusilli so it doesn’t unravel and splatter sauce on me. No extra charge for changing the pasta too. I tried capellini pasta once, but it got soggy really fast.

On my most recent trip to La Nonna, I was craving for truffle. Like seriously, I MUST have truffle that evening. So I ordered the La Nonna signature pizza, $23. It had tomato, mozzarella, Parmesan, asparagus, egg and of course, that heady scent, truffle. See! Doesn’t the egg look like a bright sun and oh-so-pretty?
