About Nonna’s Italian Bistro

Is this your business?

    Nonna’s is a family owned and operated business that started in Colorado in 1978.

    Originally from Chicago, my family opened Johnnies on the north side of Chicago, in 1952. I carried on my family’s business bringing Chicago inspired food to Denver, Colorado.

    Opening Red Hot Experience, which was a Chicago style deli that served Vienna products, was just a START! I opened five more delis and finally I settled in Greenwood Village in 1988 for 12 years with Ristorante Catalano, off Holly & Orchard.

    I owned Nonna’s Chicago Bistro in Denver for 9 years but sold it to open my latest restaurant in 2014, Nonna’s Italian Bistro in Centennial.

    I am grateful to my many loyal customers that have followed us through this journey.

    With much appreciation and adoration.

    This place was absolutely fantabulous! Food was spectacular! Been a while since I have been this satisfied by the amount of food per portion and flavor was off the charts! You must go!!

    Let me start by saying that our server was very nice. Struggled a bit with remembering things, but admitted that they were short staffed so we were sympathetic to that. We started off with the bruschetta, which was served with stale crostinis. They tasted like they were made in a large batch in the morning, and then sat around all day getting stale. Not only that, but they tasted like they’d absorbed the kitchen air, so not a great start. Then came the mains (pictured below). The short rib was dry, and bland with a watery sauce. Not sure how you dry out a braised short rib, but that’s what happened. The mash had clumpy, grainy consistency. This is likely due to it sitting around, having the condensation dribble off the lid into the mash. I ate it as I didn’t want to complain about every dish, so I just sucked it up. My wife’s chicken parm was cold, and the sauce I can only describe as chef Boyardee canned tomato soup. It was watery and disgusting. That we sent back as it was quite literally inedible. We told the server and they responded with “I’m so sorry, the food here is horrible, I know!” They offered us a free cannoli, but based on what we had just eaten, we declined the offer and chose to simply enjoy our wine as it was the only thing the untouched by the cook in the back. I’m not saying that the whole restaurant is horrible, but they should really consider replacing their kitchen staff.

    Nice atmosphere and place but customer service wasn’t all there. The waiter took forever to come back around. Got the bread late after almost after finishing our food. We didn’t even know they served bread… when we wanted refills we told a lady there and they basically ignore us. Food was just ok not really anything special.
