Our Story

We are not fancy. We are who we are. We love food. We love to feed people. We love life.

Regardless of where you came from for many in America our immigrant origins remain a vital part of who we are. From Sicily, to Detroit, to San Diego, Nonno's was created with a passion to serve the finest traditional Italian food. Since its first start in Detroit, Michigan in the early 1950's than to San Diego (National City), California in the early 1960's, and to its current location in La Mesa since 1998, Nonno's continues its tradition of serving the finest hearty and delicious Italian food in San Diego county. 


If you want the kind of food Frank Sinatra used to rush home to eat, and the kind of food that is eaten in New York, New Jersey, Chicago, Boston, and Little Italy's located throughout America every Sunday afternoon, then welcome.


When in the area stop by and say hello to Chef and Owner Gerardo who will be delighted to prepare you an authentic Italian meal. The pasta is always fantastic, the subs are always filling, the pizza is superb, and the service is always friendly. Buon Appetito!
