About Us

Trattoria La Cuicina della Nonna (“Kitchen from my grandmother”) was born in the winter of 2000 to Kenny and Yvonne DeFazio. Chef Kenny DeFazio has brought the delightful culinary tone of the big city eateries with him to the heart of Mansfield to provide a genuine European taste to the palates of small town suburbia. Yvonne brings her warm family motherly personality that suits the aura of Nonna’s presence. Located a rocks throw from the Tweeter Center, La Cuicina offers a true Calabrian feel as you enter our rustic world modeled after the unforgettable sensory experience of walking into grandma’s kitchen. Della Nonna showcases an array of traditional Italian wines in addition to offering specialty martinis and premium spirits which complement the precision and detail that goes into the meticulously prepared European menu creations.
