The American Dream
Born and raised in the restaurant business of the Twin Cities, co-founder Caterina Suglia is no stranger to hard work! Her Italian heritage always brought her great pride and she was always thankful for the morals taught to her by her hardworking Italian parents and grandparents. But most of all, she was inspired by the great romance of her Grandmother and Grandfather, so she set out to meet and marry a man just like him! After years of helping to “matchmake” others, her match was finally revealed to her!
Born in a small village in South East Italy, co-founder Francesco Suglia was a charming young man with a passion for food. He was inspired by the many hours he’d spend with his Nonna and Mama learning how to cook with the ingredients of their region. Fresh seafoods were plentiful, garden herbs abundant, and natural meats and cheeses were raised and crafted by village friends. Dinner at Nonna’s was a true delight, one that makes you feel loved, appreciated and adored!
After years of training, in various other restaurants, Caterina, known to her friends and family as Tina, and Francesco, would meet in the Twin Cities, and despite the differences their upbringings would present, they both share a passion for family, friends, and exceptional food to share with them. It is their hope that all of their guests feel the love, appreciation and adoration that they shared with their Nonnas at their houses! Visit Chef Francesco and Tina at “Nonna Rosa’s Ristorante Italiano” and feel it for your self! Established in Robbinsdale since 2010! Buon Appetito!
