At first glance, the location of Nono does not seem promising: tucked into the corner of a compound in the shadow of an imposing sports complex in Hod Hasharon. Immediately upon entering the Italian restaurant, however, one is impressed by a striking pair of stylish, wood-fired pizza ovens, with startlingly white exteriors.
“We imported the ovens from Italy,” says co-owner Yaki Boneh. “And we fire them exclusively with citrus wood.”
Nono’s attention to detail and quality control is a hallmark of the restaurant. Using flour also imported from Italy, the kitchen makes the pizza dough and all its pasta from scratch. The ice cream is made in-house as well. And even the house wine – Lewinsohn – is part of the proprietors’ family business. Hence, the tagline “Nono: Pizza – Gelato – Vino.”
