If you are looking for an authentic Italian cuisine, this is a must in cape. It seriously reminds me of the small pizzerias in Rome and Venice Great food, lovely service

Nona Lina is a non fuzzy Ristorante Pizzeria offering Salads, Pasta and Pizza. We had a Pizza which to our liking thin and crispy. The service was friendly and good. Sitting outside one has to bear with the traffic noise from the road.

We had the worst pizza - cheese had a funny taste, crust was soggy from the start, canned tuna on top of one of the quarters, and so on. Salads were ok - only reason I am giving it two stars.

Nona Lina is an excellent little restaurant with an authentic Italian atmosphere. Delicious food with lots of vegetarian options that can easily be adapted for vegans. Friendly staff and great service.
