Owners description

The Victorian Warehouse, Nonna, spills out onto a pergola-covered deck which offers a great view. Guests have the option of dining inside or out on the covered all-weather deck while enjoying fresh Mediterranean cuisine and soaking up the views. This contemporary Italian bistro and deli is fondly named after Makaranga matriarch, Danna Flack. Chick and Danna Flack bought the 30-acre property in 2002 and named it Makaranga after the towering wild poplar trees, which line the stream and also after the Makaranga tribe from Inyanga, Zimbabwe, where Danna spent her childhood. Since then Danna has delighted in all things Italian complete with taking on the Italian nomenclature Nonna since becoming a granny. The bistro, it seems, in a most natural manner, almost named itself. The open-plan kitchen which faces onto the restaurant produces contemporary fare. Ashleigh Van Niekerk, Chef de Cuisine at Nonna, takes you on a taste and visual explosion with the menu. The walk-in wine cellar houses hand-selected local and international offerings. Nonna welcomes children who will no doubt enjoy their own special eating area, rolling their own pizza dough and partaking in our range of arts and crafts, all strategically placed within sight but not necessarily sound of you. A stretch of pergola-covered astro turf creates a safe and fun space for your children. There is also an outside structured play ground with a natural timbered gym, which is in close proximity to the restaurant and the deli so that carers can take a well-deserved respite from their responsibilities while their children play on the rock garden and play gym with full visibility from the restaurant.

User reviews

  • I had dinner here over the weekend and had a pizza which was delicious. The service could be improved as we were not seen to as much as we should have been however the ambience was great and we had a great evening.
