Dinner this weekend was a reunion, as we saw several of the faces who cooked and served at the now-closed Renzo’s Italian Restaurant at the new Trattoria Nonna in Boca Raton.
The lively atmosphere, good Italian food, and caring service makes it a fun, neighborhood gathering place. Our order of sweet melon slices topped with thin prosciutto and chopped salad started the night, but it only got better with the artisanal pizzas, fresh fish and baked ravioli with a bolognese sauce—all what you would expect in a top trattoria.
At Nonna’s, family recipes are shared with guests. For example, Sara Lena, the owner, has her granddaughter preparing their tasty tiramisu and multiple creations from Chef Cosmo’s kitchen come straight out of the family cookbook.
This summer, visit Trattoria Nonna for good food and good service—it was wonderful to see the familiar smiles from our friends when we used to eat at Renzo’s. Open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., the restaurant is open for lunch and also delivers. Best to call for reservations on weekends, in and out of season!
