Description

City Pages' Description

The veal shank osso bucco at I Nonni is the sort of dish that lingers in your memory...the tenderness of the braised meat, the rich, buttery marrow you scooped from the bone with a tiny spoon. It's one of those meals that makes it difficult to order anything else on the menu. But if you can bear to venture beyond, I Nonni offers fresh seafood; homemade gnocchi with tomato, basil, and ricotta; and paper-thin beef carpaccio piled with sharp arugula, shaved Parmesan, olive oil, and served with a whole lemon to squeeze on top. It's cuisine inspired by the Italian grandparents, or i nonni, of the owners, the Marchionda family, who founded the beloved Buon Giorno Italian Market and sourced more than 400 small-production, regional Italian wines to pair. The authentic meals are served in a dining room that's decidedly modern: glowingly lit, with vaulted ceilings, and windows looking into those of the neighboring McMansions.

    The best Italian I have ever had! Great spot for a dinner for two. Bring your credit card because it is not cheap.

    If the weather's even vaguely nice, get patio seating -- it's worththe wait. One word: waterfalls.

    The New Drink list is amazing! Perfect Patio weather cocktails! The Bartenders are amazing! :)

  • Heavy Table on 08/10/09

    The pistachio-crusted Minnesota lamb chops are really enjoyable,and a good deal when you do the three-course tasting menu.
