Nonna Rosa Italian Restaurant Offers Traditional Italian Dishes

Nonna Rosa, a family-owned Italian restaurant proudly serves traditional Italian dishes in Okatie SC with recipes straight from Pozzuoli, Italy.

While there may be many Italian restaurants in the US that only claim to be authentic, Nonna Rosa is the real deal. Boasting its award-winning chef that is a native of Italy, Nonna Rosa Italian Restaurant serves delectable Italian dishes that are said to have originated many years ago in the country.

Nonna Rosa is a family-owned Italian restaurant located in the Food Lion Shopping Center in Okatie Village. As the owners like to say, “We are a traditional cucina creating authentic Italian dishes.”

“In small towns in Italy like Pozzuoli, recipes that are most loved by everyone are passed down through the generations, with each new generation adding their unique techniques and variations,” Chef Peppe Gialone, Nonna Rosa’s executive chef explains. According to him, this how he also learned his craft, watching his grandmother, Nonna Rosa, when he was a child.

Chef Peppe recounts that most of his best-loved memories are of his grandmother, watching her create his favorite dishes in her small cucina, sharing good times, and her love of cooking. Not soon after, he also mastered his nonna’s recipes which we now enjoy in every dish at Nonna Rosa Italian Restaurant.

From antipasti and zuppa to entrees and pasta, Nonna Rosa’s dinner menu showcases traditional Italian dishes in Okatie, SC. “We at Nonna Rosa welcome you to our restaurant to enjoy authentic Italian food in a family atmosphere, the way Nonna Rosa would have done years ago in Pozzuoli, Italy," said one of the restaurant's owners, Danny Tinnel.

Besides their impressive dinner menu, Nonna Rosa also offers a wide array of wines that one can perfectly pair with their dish. A notable section in the wine menu is Peppe’s Special Selection, six of their finest wines hand-picked by Chef Peppe Gialone himself. Among them is the Brunello Notte Di Note, La Togata, Tuscany, described as full-bodied, well-structured, austere and tannic, and Best of the Show HH 2018.

Currently, Nonna Rosa has expanded into offering delivery services to cater to customers that cannot come to the restaurant. Their website now includes a special delivery menu that you can view and download here.
