"Nonnina is influenced by our grandmothers."
From the talented team behind Chicago’s acclaimed Piccolo Sogno comes Nonnina, featuring classic and modernized takes on beloved family recipes. Partners Tony Priolo and Ciro Longobardo brought in Executive Chef/Partner Chris Macchia and longtime Piccolo Sogno team member Ricardo Brizuela as General Manager/Partner.
Nonnina echoes old school cooking techniques inspired by the partners’ “nonnas,” offering an upscale, yet approachable experience with a retro vibe. The menu, collaborated between Chef Macchia and Chef Priolo, brings grandma’s recipes to a sleek atmosphere. Appealing to the hustle and bustle of the River North neighborhood, Nonnina also features an adjacent grab-and-go counter service, “Nonnina To Go,” welcoming diners on the move with casual and affordable specialties for lunch and dinner during the week.
