Casa Nonna New York
Casa Nonna, which means “Grandmother’s House” in Italian, is as open and inviting as you would expect from our name. Located just south of the theater district, Casa Nonna is our tribute to the bold, pure flavors that are the hallmark of true Italian cuisine.
The menu is a culmination of traditional Roman and Tuscan fare, with a focus on the freshest local and seasonal ingredients. From salumi, cheese and antipasti platters, to house-made pastas and wood-fired pizzas, the menu is offered á la carte and family style, all meant to be shared. A stellar 100% Italian wine list, celebrating the quality and diversity of Italian grape varietals, complements the meal.
The space is sleek and sensual, with dark wood accented with copper veneers, terra cotta floors and shelves laden with Italian products and jarred pastas. A central highlight is the Pizza Bar, which features an elegant marble counter with full view of the open kitchen and mosaic-tiled wood-fire pizza oven.
Casa Nonna’s pizza can also be enjoyed at Madison Square Garden in the SAP Madison Concourse, Garden Concourse & Bridge Level during games and concerts.
