Nonna Tina Paladar

This highly-regarded Italian restaurant in Varadero offers a huge selection of your favourite Italian pasta and pizza dishes, all served up in a vibrant, rustic setting. With freshly-made and authentic classics cooked with flair and passion, Paladar Nonna Tina is a destination that's worth making a special trip for.

One of the first things you’ll notice about Paladar Nonna Tina is the sheer choice of dishes. The range of entrees is particularly extensive. Alongside a generous selection of classic spaghetti dishes, there’s the meaty Gnocchi al Ragù, Tortelloni Panna e Prosciutto (cream, cheese and prosciutto ham), and Lasagna alla Bolognese – a hearty, deeply-flavoured beef lasagne.

If you’d prefer a lighter start to your meal, you could always opt for the selection of fresh Italian breads from the appetizer menu. Along with tasty bruschetta, there’s crostone covered with melted gorgonzola and focaccia bread made with rosemary and olive oil. You might also wish to share Paladar Nonna Tina’s cheese boards or the selection of cold cut meats and salads.

The main menu is dominated by home-made pasta dishes with plenty of fresh seafood options to choose from. But one of the real treats at Paladar Nonna Tina are the huge choice of wood-fired pizzas. You might be tempted by the asparagus and prosciutto ham-topped Prosciutto e asparagi. Then there’s the 4 stagioni – a delicious vegetarian option with olives, onions, peppers, mushrooms and cheese. While for those looking to stray away from the classics there’s the German-inspired ‘Wurstel’, made with fresh tomatoes, melted cheese and hot dogs.

The exceptional pizzas are one of Paladar Nonna Tina’s true specialities and are genuinely not to be missed. The pizzas are also well-known for being on the large size, so you can be sure whichever option you go for you’ll finish your meal feeling well and truly satisfied.

As for the sweet options? If room allows, there are a few enticing options to choose from such as crostata (an Italian baked tart) and two different types of tiramisù including tiramisù al cioccolato - a decadent chocolaty version of the original and much-loved classic.

Paladar Nonna Tina is most definitely an absolute must for lovers of Italian food and offers a superb choice of dishes at incredibly reasonable prices. The restaurant opens its doors at midday and gets busy pretty fast, so be sure to make yourself a reservation if you want to guarantee yourself a table.
