The story of Nonno's Italian Restaurant began over 30 years ago, when Stefano and his family decided to bring their love for Italian cuisine to the people of Central Florida. With a passion for the industry and a family-oriented approach to hospitality, they quickly earned recognition and awards as the best Italian restaurant in Orlando.


Stefano's dedication to his craft and his unwavering passion for the restaurant industry resulted in the success of two previous restaurants, Il Pescatore and Stefano's Trattoria, which continue to flourish and remain a proud demonstration of his exceptional success. Despite having sold these establishments, Stefano's legacy and love for the industry live on through Nonno's Italian Restaurant.

Our family's passion and dedication to the restaurant industry has not only been showcased at Nonno's but also at our sister establishment, Antonella's Pizzeria, owned by Nonno's daughter.
