Marcie Turney and Valerie Safran’s casual Italian eatery in downtown Philadelphia
Evoking the spirit of an Italian grandmother’s kitchen, Little Nonna’s is a casual Italian-American restaurant by the Gayborhood’s beloved restaurant partners (in business and in life), Marie Turney and Valerie Safran. Located on the ground level of The Independent Hotel, Little Nonna’s sources bread, pasta, and sausage from the Philadelphia Italian Market, where locals have long loved (and stood in long lines to get) Sarcone’s bread and Fiorella’s Sausage. Hand-pulled mozzarella is made fresh daily at 4 p.m.
Meals are served family style, and a large courtyard in the back allows you to enjoy your meal al fresco (seasonally). A visit to The Independent Hotel would not complete without a trip to Little Nonna’s. Expect to be charmed by the slightly kitschy decor and saying “Delizioso!” from the first bite!
