Nonna and I Kensington Park

Nonna and I is a popular Norwood eatery that has now opened its second location in Kensington Park. Tempting Palates was invited to the launch where we had a taste of  Chef Khailil's fun and infectious energy as well as some hearty Italian dishes.

The new premises is bigger and brighter than its original store which includes an area for a Chef Khalil's cooking school and a private section which he affectionately calls Little Italy. The food is of the same Chef Khalil quality where this time we tried the Family Platter, the Beef Cheeks cooked in balsamic & red wine, Eggplant Rollatini and for dessert the Tiramisu.

Along with the dishes served we had matching wines from local wineries Stage Door Wine Co and  Eden Hall.

For those who have dined at the Norwood location you will remember the Come Hungry Leave Happy motto. Chef Khalil does his best to live up to that motto every time. The new location at Kensignton Park has the same vibe plus much, much more!
