Nonna’s at the Gold Coast’s Harbour Town has reopened after a one million dollar renovation.

The reworked menu was inspired by Nonna’s owners, brothers Ben, Damien and Sacha Kanaghines, tour of the United States’ earlier in 2016. The new menu combines the previously separate Italian, seafood and steakhouse lists, with dishes including ‘insane shakes’, metre-long pizzas, sandwiches, burgers and Wagyu rump steaks.

Damien Kanaghines said the overhaul of the 11-year-old establishment had been in the pipeline for three years and was timely given recent upgrades to Harbour Town and the evolution of the centre’s dining mix.

 “It’s our aim to create something pretty special on the northern Gold Coast and set Nonna’s apart from the bland, cookie-cutter-style franchises that are popping up,” Kanaghines said.

“We visited 200 venues while we were in the US, and from that we have taken the best of what we saw and brought it back to ensure that we are at the forefront of the industry.”

Kanaghines said the reshaped Nonna’s would seat an extra 40 people inside and would enable patrons to observe the workings of the new open kitchen through a glass wall.

A 2.2 tonne Marana Forni rotary pizza oven from Italy has also been installed as part of the renewal.

Capable of producing pizzas in less than two minutes, the gas and wood-fired oven is endorsed by the international pizza organisation, Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana, and is the only one of its kind on the Gold Coast.

In tandem with its new food offering, Nonna’s has also produced a gluten-free menu with a wide range of dishes and drinks. Nonna’s is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day.
