Eating Lunch @ Nonna's Oven (Richmond Hill)

9:28:00 AM

For this awesome lunch food adventure, only one of my work colleagues could come out. After some Toronto food blog reading, some people suggested Nonna's Oven up in Richmond Hill area. I didn't investigate more but the Google reviews were 4.5/5 stars. We decided to venture here even though it was slightly far from work but manageable due to the location near Highway 404.

The restaurant didn't look big from outside but it was larger inside. There were ample wooden seats and tables around 11:50am. There was a busy line already at the cashier for order placing. The decor was clean with a lot of brick designs and large food posters on the walls.

The restaurant format was very different compared to other restaurants. The server said to order first at the cashier and than grab a seat at the tables. As a result, there were huge lines forming at the cashier stretching all the way to the door. We managed to flag one of the servers to provide tap water.

For this adventure, we decided to share two dishes.

We order the following:  

  • Fantasia Pizza 
    • $16 -Basic with arugala lettuce prosciutto crudo, and parmigiano shavings
  • Steak Sorpresa Sandwich 
    • $11-Oven baked foccaccia stuffed with grilled steak strips, carmelized onion, and sautéed mushrooms in a light tomato sauce marinate and topped with mozzarella.
The Fantasia pizza was really good with the very thin crust. The toppings of the lettuce, prosciutto and shavings were put onto the pizza separate after the pizza was baked. I started eating pizzas recently by folding them into a sandwich and found this method really convenient. The steak sandwich was something very foreign to me. I was kind of expecting two breads and filling in the middle. The focaccia bread was actually very thin compared to what I had in the past. When eating with all the ingredients combined, the flavours were in perfect arrangement. As I kept going, found this meal to be heavier and harder to eat.

Overall, I wouldn't get the sandwich but would definitely get the pizza again if I was in the Richmond Hill area. It was definitely rare to find a business that was bursting at lunch time.
