The dinner hour is approaching and chances are that you don’t feel like cooking or doing the dishes tonight. So why not let someone else take care of both? Pick up the phone, make your reservation and get ready to take your tastebuds on a tour of Southern Europe at Nonna of Italy.

Focused on fresh, handmade Italian classics and contemporary Mediterranean dishes, Nonna of Italy has been a Sunset Strip staple for nearly four years, attracting A-listers and serious foodies alike.

Their dineLA menu lets you sample some of their specialties with a full three-course meal set at a more wallet-friendly price. Start your dinner with a choice of Tuscan-style vegetable ribollita soup, barbabietola caprese salad with wood oven roasted gold and ruby beets, mozzarella, basil and olive oil, or Spanish black mussels with Manila clams in a spicy tomato broth. Main course options include pizza quattro formaggi with asiago, mozzarella, gorgonzola and goat cheese with arugula and kalamata olives; organic chicken breast or veal chop served Milanese style (pounded, breaded and sautéed) with gold whipped potatoes and sautéed spinach; or braised veal ossobuco with gold whipped potatoes and roasted beets. End your meal with something sweet: carrot cake, classic tiramisu or vanilla ice cream affogato.

Nonna of Italy’s DineLA dinner menu is $44 per person. A special three-course lunch menu is also available for $34 per person and includes main course options ravioli di ricotta e spinach, grilled organic salmon with wood oven roasted vegetables or prime New York steak thinly sliced and charbroiled with arugula and roasted potatoes.
