A New Italian Eatery Is Coming To South Bank And Nonna Would Approve

Never had a nonna? You do now!

Fact: when it comes to drool-worthy food, nonnas know what’s up. Perfectly crafted every time with plenty for seconds and takeaway, their secret ingredient isn’t something stupid like love – it’s a hush-hush family recipe that’s lasted generations.

Likewise, South Bank’s latest Italian restaurant, bar, and deli delivers delicious bites and rustic vibes just the way your nonna makes it.

Nonna’s Pizza & Deli comes from the people behind Ole Restaurant, Mucho Mexicano, and Downtown Istanbul, meaning it’s sure to be another authentic dining experience that serves as a delectable escape. Offering nostalgic dishes straight from the streets of Naples with a modern twist, you’ll feel right at home.

From the Napoli-style wood fired pizza to the deep-fried gnocco fritto with cured meat, and colossal antipasto boards, the curated menu courtesy of Executive Chef Craig Wright is made for family dinners. In true Italian style, Nonna’s also offers a full breakfast menu with homemade delicacies and a deli service for all your charcuterie needs.

After 4pm, it’s time to par-tay with Bar Italia, slinging signature drinks like spritzes and negronis, contemporary cocktails, and old school classics – Garibaldi Martini, anyone? Local and imported beers will also be on hand, as well as a robust selection of Italian, Australian, and New Zealand wines.
