If you go down to Harbour Town and you spot a restaurant by the same name covering most of the dining area, that would be Nonna's. Although, now it isn't as big as how it used to be, their menu is still the same serving a wide range of dishes from Italian to Steak and the list goes on.. Generally, their portion for their dishes is quite big so do bear that in mind when you're wanting to order.

'Original Parmigiana' (AUD$25.95) was a hand crumbed Chicken Schnitzel with Napoli sauce, ham and melted mozarella cheese served with fries and a garnish salad. A classic dish that everyone loves to have but some places just don't do it right and some just do. The garnish salad was simply a garden salad with salad green mix, sprouts, slices of red onion and carrot with cherry tomatoes. The fries was crispy on the outside and placed underneath the Chicken Schnitzel. The napoli sauce tasted more of a chunky tomato paste sauce with the mozarella cheese on top melting over it. Sadly, there was only one slice of ham for the whole schnitzel. The schnitzel was thinly crumbed allowing the chicken breast to be the star of the dish. The plus side was that it was big in portion but it was just okay, it wasn't great but it wasn't bad either, reminded me of Pub Parmys..

Nonna's offers 6 different types of salads in which you can choose from and add any choice of meat for extra or just stick with a plain salad. I really felt like a Caesar so I decided to order their 'Chef's Salad w Salt and Pepper Calamari' (AUD$24.95) which consisted of Mesculin lettuce, avocado, egg, mozarella cheese, tomato, cucumber, spanish onion with a strip of bacon and their Caesar dressing with an addition of Salt and Pepper Calamari in which you get about 6 pieces.

Their salad portion is great and that's no doubting it, served on a crispy tortilla shell is definitely something unique but being able to have something freshly made and healthy but at the same time being able to have something fried like a crispy tortilla which is a great accompaniment and a base to the salad. I wonder if more restaurants should serve their salads this way instead of just the norm..

After seeing the salad arrive on the table, I realised that I had forgotten the portion of it and if I had known earlier, maybe I would have omitted the Salt and Pepper Calamari since in the end, I struggled to finish it even with the help of the Mr.. Fresh lettuce with a combination of various elements which made it a great salad to have especially on a warm sunny day.
