Now spread across two outlets (the other in Holland Village), the success story of The Senso Group’s La Nonna is founded upon this Italian restaurant’s commitment to authenticity. The La Nonna restaurant along Bukit Timah’s Namly Place is where it all began, with suitably rustic premises reflecting the style of traditional Italian trattoria, in which discerning diners can enjoy authentic Italian dishes, prepared just the way nonna (grandmother) would. La Nonna’s signature dishes have become popular with Singapore’s fans of Italian cuisine, including the popular, luxuriant La Nonna pizza and their feted sea bass.
La Nonna’s Namly Place restaurant is the originator of The Senso Group’s successful twinned restaurants. Its here in Bukit Timah that La Nonna’s expert Italian chefs perfected the La Nonna pizza, a signature dish that takes a traditional thin-crust base and give it a gourmet topping of tomato, mozzarella, parmesan, asparagus, egg, and black truffle for a pungent, savoury finish. Other popular items among Singapore diners on the look out for Italian are La Nonna’s simple standard of fresh tomatoes topped with Italian mozzarella, drizzled with olive oil and garnished with basil, and the delicious sea bass with grilled mixed vegetables. As with all true Italian cuisine, the simplicity of the dishes belies their depth and complexity of flavour and texture.
La Nonna’s location down the quiet, residential length of Namly Place has made it incredibly popular with Bukit Timah residents. Yet, people are coming from all over Singapore to bask in La Nonna’s inviting, trattoria-style ambience. All earth-tones, basketed Chianti bottles, brick and wood finishing, this Italian restaurant houses a mandatory wood-fired pizza oven, for turning out the authentic pies for which La Nonna has become famous. It’s the perfect spot for an intimate evening, or for families to dine in peaceful surrounds.
Very nice food, excellent place for couple. Value for money.
Family friendly ambience. Staff was friendly and attentive. Food was very good - we ordered a number of appetisers and mains to share, and all were good. Crabmeat pasta was made extra spicy, as requested.
Great service and very good Italian food. Had the Mother's Day set menu to share among the 4 of us, which included calamari (best I've had in a long while), their signature pizza, linguine, rib eye steak and tiramisu (all good). Will be back...
