Nonna’s has gained a well-deserved reputation for bringing delicious Italian cuisine to the area – and offers food to go as well as the full restaurant experience.

On the way back from a day in the Peak District, we called into their Chesterfield branch to sample what was available.

There is a deli counter with salamis and cheeses, jars of antipasti and tempting, large focaccia breads.

The kitchen will also prepare items from the menu for take-away on request.

We each had a panino – one tuna, two capreses – which didn’t take long to arrive and filled the car with a lovely aroma of herbs and fresh tomatoes while driving home.

Each panino was nicely-filled. The caprese ones had pesto as well as the mozzarella and chopped tomatoes, while the tonno panino had tuna, olives and sun-dried tomatoes.

And the salad garnish was included artichokes and chopped green beans as well as crunchy lettuce lightly tossed on olive oil.

Thumbs up for full-on flavour and authentic Italian experience. Only slight grumble is that takeaway food from the menu is the same price as eating in-house. Total price £19.50 - £6.50 per panino.
