Well my reservation was accepted both over the phone and via Opentable, yet the restaurant was closed when we arrived. Pretty ridiculous mistake...

I am unable to review as the restaurant was closed when we arrived for our reservation.

Thank you for making our engagement so memorable. Nonna's is truly a hidden gem - we are so happy that we discovered it! We will continue to recommend it to friends and family. We are looking forward to our next meal at Nonna's!

Nonna's is a great spot for an intimate dinner. It's off the beaten path in Leelanau County in the Homestead Resort. It's quiet and cozy and the service is outstanding. Our server on our most recent visit, Lindsey, was personable and attentive but not overbearing. The food is a little high in price, but well prepared. We both had aged steak, which was cooked perfectly medium rare but otherwise not remarkable. The roasted vegetables, though, were flavorful and not overcooked. The chef typically provides a free appetizer which is always different and unique. We also received a free dessert as it was my wife's birthday. Ultimately, it's the atmosphere and service which win us back over the food. Even so, a night at Nonna's is a special treat.

It was my girlfriends birthday and Nonna's took amazing care of us. Our salad, appetizer and entrees were phenomenal and the chef catered to our needs. They even treated us to a unique appetizer and dessert!

Best place to eat at The Homestead by far.

Have been to Nonna's twice. Both times in winter with very few customers as Glen Arbor is more vibrant in the summer. Neither meal was disappointing and I would certainly go back. I will have to try Nonna's in the summer when it is busier to evaluate the service.

The food and service were superb, as always. The menu changes often, and the choices are wonderful. The portion sizes are perfect. Nonna's is our absolutely favorite restaurant.

The room was dark. Our waitress was inexperienced and poorly trained. The food was OK.

We have eaten at this place before and service and food were better then.

Nonna's at the Homestead Resort was excellent! I had never heard of many of the menu choices, but the server explained each one very well...and they rocked! The flavors mixed together were a creative experience to be enjoyed. We had great service and really enjoyed our anniversary dinner, including the light and flavorful tiramisu Nonna's provided.

Food was exceptional and the service was awesome. If you're looking for a nice quite spot for a great meal and a truly exceptional wine and spirits list this is the spot.

Very nice evening. Food was excellent. During the week at this time of year the resort is not too busy so our server was also the bartender and hostess. One additional person working at the time of our visit would have been beneficial. Regardless, great food and service.
