ciao ! reviews
this city , when Little Nana ’ s Italian Kitchen boldly opened in December , 2019 , we were elated . A couple of passionate food lovers with Calabrian ancestry , generous hearts and a big helping of hospitality to share – what ’ s not to love ? Classic southern Italian style dishes and Nana ’ s recipes from the old country may not be such a secret formula , but it ’ s a winning one .
The west end location on Notre Dame integrates with the mural-rich neighbourhood vibe , its artsy painted exterior hinting to a spirit of fun . Inside , rich dark wood wrapping around every dining booth , and ambient lighting add cozy elegance to the space . Chef Dann Ignacio brings some NYC pedigree to pair with the knowledge of tradition of the Calabrian owners .
Calabrian food is one of Italy ’ s simplest regional cuisines , yet its flavours are strong . Caciocavello cheese , a signature of the area , appears on the cheese charcuterie , along with spicy sausages . Burrata is punctuated with vibrant fresh pesto , grape tomatoes and syrupy balsamic glaze , a fullbodied mix of herbaceous sweet and sour notes on the creamy cheese ball .
Simple recipes are not to be underestimated . Premium ingredients are prevalent throughout the menu , and Parmigiano Reggiano , pecorino and buffalo mozzarella make their delightful statement on salads , pizza and pastas . Shavings of Parm elevate classic Caesar salad at the top of a meal .
On special occasions , a wheel of Pecorino Romano is brought in for tableside preparations of cacio e pepe , a rare treat showcasing how spaghetti , pepper and hot water result in an inexplicable creamy , fiery masterpiece .
Pasta lovers are well taken care of . Popular favourites like spaghetti and housemade meatballs are sure bets . Tender ground beef and pork swimming in sweet marinara reveal Nana ’ s
Wishing you a peaceful and healthy New Year
