It was late Friday morning and time to think about what we were going to order for lunch. We thought of having Italian fare and started to look at some of the lunch offers available for takeaway. What caught our attention was the 1-for-1 La Nonna takeaway promotion. The name “La Nonna” means “The Grandmother” in Italian. It connotes traditional hearty and unpretentious Italian fare.
