About Nonna's Kitchen
Cosy, classic local Italian in Kirkintilloch
Nonna’s Kitchen might not have an actual Italian granny tending the pans in the kitchen, but, with its tiled décor and warm lighting, it certainly has the feel of a traditional neighbourhood Italian establishment. Kirkintilloch locals keep coming back for cuisine that combines freshly-prepared favourites with some classy specials. The authentic feel is notable on Friday nights with live Italian accordion music.
Pizza, pastas and authentic specials.
Nonna’s Kitchen stays loyal to the time-tested pasta sauces and pizza toppings popular with locals while offering plenty of authentic flavours from the old country.
Pasta highlights include dishes such as ravioli al manzo, filled with beef, Parma ham and sage butter. Mains feature old-school creations like Vitello Marsala, a veal escalope in a butter and Marsala sauce with a rocket and Parmesan salad.
Scottish seafood makes an appearance in several dishes, notably the fresh langoustines in home-made langoustine bisque, served with linguine.
To accompany your espresso and digestif, the dessert list leads with Nonna’s tiramisu, although the lemon posset with raspberry coulis provides a lighter alternative.
