Nonna Rosa 3: "Italian Posh Nosh" Nonna Rosa III Tip by kit_mc

Nonna Rosa III, London: 1 reviews and 1 photos


This restaurant in Uxbridge town centre is something special. While I frankly barely count Uxbridge as London, officially it's in the London Borough of Hillingdon, so it goes in my London pages.

Inside it's a mix of a fairly classy restaurant, mixed with some of the older more cliched elements of Italian restaurants, such as the dark wooden beams. Arriving at 6pm on a Saturday, although the place was almost empty, the place filled up very fast, so bookings are advised certainly at weekends. The restaurant is closed on Sundays.

It's run by a very classy lady, husky voiced and Italian accented. Service was very good, the food excellent. Not necessarily somewhere to go if you're in a rush, but for relaxed service and great food, this is an impressive local restaurant, streets ahead of it's mainstream competition. This place is exceptionally popular with locals so remember to reserve a table.

Favorite Dish: We didn't have wine with the meal which meant it only came at 43.00 GBP. But for that we got an Italian salami selection and a dish of mushrooms stuffed with mozerella with a gorgeous garlic butter sauce. Having got the tastebuds going, main courses were a fillet of steak on mashed potato with a gorgonzola sauce (about 14.00) and fillet of chicken covered in a tomato and vegetable sauce (around 13.00). You have a choice of pasta, vegetables or fries with the main meal. I'd recommend the pasta - mine was in a spicy arriabiata sauce.

The portions were all very generous meaning dessert would be too much of a struggle. Instead we went for an Irish Coffee (with whiskey) and a Calypso Coffee (with Tia Maria). I'm a bit of a fan of Irish coffee and can attest to the quality here!

For a treat this was a great evening, but if you just wanted something cheaper and simpler, they have a great pasta and pizza menu and I'd be very confident you'll find something worth ordering.
