As we reached the Restaurant, we had a real warm welcome by the staff. Both the Outdoor and Indoor seating had a calm and cool ambiance. Being located in the west bay area, this place seems to be secluded from the hustle and bustle of the city and I like that fact.
Though the climate was good and I would have loved to sit at the outdoor area, my kid was not that very well and we opted to choose inside.
We were first welcomed by a watermelon drink followed by a starter – A Cracker topped with spinach and ricotta cheese topping. The starter was placed on a well polished rock and it looked very elegant and pretty on the plate and tasty as well. A good start !!
From the Appetizers menu, we were served with :
Bufalo Mozzarella – with fresh cherry tomatoes, sun-dried cherry tomatoes, Rocket leaves and Black Olives Tapenade. Every component on the plate went well together and cheese was just melt in your mouth.
Warm Spinach Salad – With mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, Parmesan Cheese and Balsamic Reduction. I am not really a salad person. However this salad blown me away. Though every ingredient looks simple, the flavors were just perfect. I thoroughly enjoyed and I would highly recommend it.
The bread served along with the salad and appetizers were baked fresh and delicious. As usual, my kid was the one who finished it all.
Next Up was the Risotto with Asparagus – The plate looked very elegant and I loved the color of the risotto itself. It was cheesy, rice cooked to perfection and every spoon gets a bite into the fresh asparagus. Thumbs up!
From the second main course, we were served with Grilled Chicken with mashed potatoes, Rocket Leaves and few dried cherry tomatoes – For me the chicken was a bit over cooked, But Mr. Husband did enjoy it perfectly. The mashed potatoes was smooth and delicious.
We would never leave an Italian place without trying their pizza – So we had a vegetable pizza – one with Zucchini, eggplant and tomatoes and the other one with mushrooms. The Pizza crust was crispy outside and soft inside, I just felt it is a little thicker than what I prefer. However it did taste good and my favorite was the one with all the veggies.
Meanwhile, we were enjoying our meal, as a gesture, the restaurant staff served my daughter a delicious creamy pasta with white sauce, chicken and cheese. And she enjoyed it very well and us too.
And the moment we have been waiting for – An ultimate piece of Tiramisu. I am completely blown away. We finished it in seconds – you should never ever miss it and it is in my current favorite dessert list.
Final Verdict : I am quite impressed with Nonna Zanon Restaurant – Be it the food or be it the service, they did a very commendable job. I would really love to go back and try their rest of the menu or may be just to have the Tiramisu. Definitely worth trying it.
