Nona Mia Italian Kitchen is the latest brainchild of chef Peter T. Affatato, who helped develop other well-known Asheville restaurants such as Savoy, and created the original 28806 Deli, Bakery & Caterers.
Nona Mia, meaning “my grandmother,” takes its inspiration from the Italian-American cuisine developed by generations of immigrants, and practiced in the kitchens around and in which Peter grew up.
The Italian-American tradition in food weds the centuries-old genius of Old-World cuisine with New-World ingredients and modern panache, creating what Peter terms “Italian-American soul food.” Unique, Sicilian-style pizza and artisan sandwiches share pride of place with classics like Fettucini Alfredo, Lasagne, Chicken Piccata, and Nona’s Penne with Sunday Gravy. New specials are offered weekly.
We always use the freshest possible ingredients and prepare everything with care. This is simple, honest, homemade food, served without frills or fuss, but made with love and a dedication to craftsmanship.
Nona Mia brings the same skill and vision to its catering business as well. Whether planning a party for 15 or 1500, Nona Mia’s catering trays are delicious, convenient, and budget-minded. When gathering with family, church, corporate or business friends, you’ll enjoy the very finest dishes, prepared with love and care from the freshest ingredients.
So whether dining in or taking out pizza, a complete supper, or enjoying a catered affair, we wish you Buon appetito!
