Little Nonna’s is deceptive. From the outside, you would think you’re just passing by a bakery or small cafe. But this is just a front for what’s happening in the back - a big garden space with string lights hung up on the trellis that covers the whole patio. For a date in Midtown Village, you can’t do much better. The menu is full of classic Italian things, but the Sunday gravy is why you should come here. You'll get a plate full of braised short ribs and fennel sausage covered in marinara, and they sometimes run out of it before the night is over, so you want to make a reservation here on the earlier side.
