Da Nonna Rosa
Posted by L Strada on 06/29/2014
We have to order take out regularly and although we would not choose to eat Italian food so frequently -- we might rather eat Thai or similar -- Da Nonna Rosa is so far superior to any of the other take out options in Park Slope that we end up ordering from there several times a week. The sauces are flavorful and delicious, the quality of food is fresh, the portions are generous and dishes are never overcooked.. The chicken francaise is especially delicious as is the salmon calabraise. the Salads are great as is the home made vinaigrette. The focaccio bread is delicious. We have tried some other local Italian restaurants and found that in comparison Da Nonna Rosa has an unpretentious family friendly atmosphere but far better quality of food than its pricier Italian neighbors.

I've been here a handful of times and noticed service can vary depending on where you sit. Counter service is great &the guys behind the bar are friendly and attentive and fun to talk to. However, in the dining room, I don't know what is going on. I had to ask multiple times for napkins and finally just got up and got my own. The waitress would disappear for long spans of time and then when you needed her, you couldn't flag her down b/c she then disappear.

We love the food and the service when dining in is great. Unfortunately, the delivery service is absolutely sub par. It always takes over an hour to get to us. Delivery service definitely needs improvement.

I NEVER write reviews but Da Nonna Rosa is hands down the best Italian restaurant in every way. The food at Da Nonna Rosa is terrific and consistently good. My husband and I order for there often when my kids are asleep. The bread...I can live off their bread. Anyway, my youngest daughter who is 4 years old, is gluten free and so we have not been able to go to an Italian Restaurant with her unless we brought her food, but she would always be sad that she could not eat what was being served so we just wouldn't go. Da Nonna Rosa now offers gluten free pizza and pasta and it is just as good as their regular dishes. My daughter loves it. She wants to go there every week. We can finally go to or order from a restaurant that is not Mexican or Chinese as a family and eat amazing Italian food. To top that wonderful surprise, I worked with Lenny, the owner, to cater a Berkeley Carroll Parents Night Dinner last night and he really did an amazing job at a truly reasonable price! The food was right on time and was just as yummy as if we were at the restaurant and somehow it stayed pretty warm all night. I knew I ordered from the right place when everyone was asking me where the food was from. Thank you Lenny and Da Nonna Rosa for making one little girl so happy and for being such a wonderful neighborhood restaurant.

My whole family loves this place. I have become obsessed with their chicken parmagianna. Pizza ia very good. I recommend the margherita. My wife says she cannot remember ever having a meal she didn't like there. Prices are very reasonable. Great family spot.

My boyfriend and I just ate here for the first time tonight, based on all of the positive reviews here. We were very disappointed. We ordered the Park Slope salad to share, the Farfalle alla Rosa (chicken, sausage, basil, mozzarella in pink sauce) and the Pasta Genovese (chicken & pesto). The salad was fine, if the mixed greens were on their last legs. The pasta portions were large, but that's where any positivity ends. My farfalle dish was too salty and tasted vaguely of buffalo wing sauce. The Genovese was super bland, and after tasting the farfalle, didn't taste like anything at all. We ate about half our plates and didn't take anything home. We felt ripped off and let down, and won't be going back.

Food is always REALLY good. Service is great. Very helpful, friendly, and attentive. This is without a doubt our favorite local spot. Highly recommended.
