Wholesome handmade mozzarella, freshly sliced Boar's Head meats, and freshly baked breads make Nonna's one-of-a-kind authentic Italian delicatessen a fabulous option for those dining in the heart of midtown, Harrisburg. At 263 Reily Street, this quaint eatery features creative dishes which incorporate a great variety of vegetables, lean meats, and healthy fats into their culinary masterpieces. With a menu composed of sandwiches, salads, entrées, and pizza, they've managed to create quite a respectable reputation among the locals.
Healthy is a relative term to many people, but at this eatery, there are some truly natural, nutritional options! Considering an appetizer? I can say from experience, if you go with the grilled vegetable roll-up comprised of grilled eggplant, yellow squash, zucchini, roasted red peppers and drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette, you will NOT be disappointed! Nonna's uses extra virgin olive oil mist to grill the veggies, and the flavors are completely robust. Getting in some veggies at this place is a breeze!
Among the entrées, you've got health conscious options such as the grilled chicken breast for $9.29 and the vegetable lasagna, baked to perfection. The portions at this restaurant are also excellent. Not too much, not too little. They are one of the few places around here that know what a serving actually is supposed to look like! They've also got freshly tossed salads with greens, tomatoes, onions, carrots, and pepperocinni that they will happily customize, adding grilled chicken to round out the salad as a meal for just an additional $2.49.
Sandwich cravings? Healthy option at Nonna's consist of the Corleone which is made up of Boar's Head turkey. You can basically have them made-to-order with condiments, so get your sandwich sans mayo and cheese but loaded with lettuce, tomato, onion, and any other veggie you prefer. Also, if you don't like sandwiches dry and need some sauciness, opt for mustard or vinegar as opposed to oil or mayonnaise. Although a little higher in fat, ham sandwiches are also a nutritious option. Stay away from the heavy, tempting cheeses and the bologna or capicola which are fairly high in fat.
They also serve breakfast, so take advantage of the menu with a three egg-white omelette with mushrooms, onions, and peppers, with a side of grilled (not fried!) turkey bacon!
You can even fax your order to 717.232. 6175 for quick pick up if you prefer!
