Nonna was the grandmother.

Mary Angela was another one in that episode.

Also:

Joey says he has 7 sisters in The One With All The Jam.

Only six have been named though:

Gina, Dina, Mary Angela, Mary Theresa, and Cookie are all in the episode The One Where Chandler Can't Remember Which Sister.

Tina is mentioned in The One With The Boobies.

Thanks, I couldn't remember their names, so I didn't know if Nonna was right :)

Joey has seven sisters - Gina, Dina, Tina, Mary Angela, Mary Therese, Veronica and Cookie. Gina is the oldest, Joey is the second oldest, and Dina is the youngest. Everyone else is somewhere in between, they never specifically mention the others' ages.

Nonni was the name of Joey's grandmother who didn't speak English.

In season 3's "The One Where Chandler Can't Remember Which Sister," we meet all seven of them and learn their names, but not which sister is which, except in a few cases. Only a few of them have any lines and we barely get to know them. They're just there to move Chandler's story forward, pretty much.

In season 8's "The One With Monica's Boots," Joey's youngest sister Dina shows up to visit him with some news. She comes by herself and we get to know a bit about her as a character, but she was played by a different actress than in season 3. Understandable, since we never learned which sister was Dina before, and the actress who played her in season 3 was basically in the background.

Otherwise, Joey's sisters were only mentioned throughout "Friends." We meet both of his grandmothers once (one in "Chandler Can't Remember Which Sister" and the other, Nonni, in season 5's "The One Where Ross Can't Flirt"), and his parents once (in season 1's "The One With the Boobies"), but that's it. That's why I'm glad Joey was the character who was spun off - we know so little about his family and his background.
