Come along with Nosh as we explore East Bay restaurants in photographs. This week we focus on Stella Nonna, at 1407 San Pablo Ave. in Berkeley. (Click to see the dinner menu.) The great space, memorable flavors and friendly service made this a place we’d love to visit again. If you’ve tried the spots we feature, please let us know about your experience in the comments below. (Photos by Emilie Raguso.)

Nonna Teresa’s pappardelle: Fatte in casa, porcini mushroom sauce, Parmigiano Reggiano ($15). A delicious earthy sauce over delicate noodles.
Hampshire pork carnitas: Cheese-n-mac stuffed chile relleno, cornbread, ancho chile sauce ($18). A surprising combo that worked.

Almond torte with burnt caramel sauce and berries, plus the optional whipped cream ($9). A home run after a night of highlights.
