    We returned to Alma Nove to take our 8 year old on his "first fancy meal". The staff was courteous (our server, Amanda was great!) and prompt. Our meal wasn't rushed after our appetizers which we lived. My son and I are gluten free and the rolls as well as all of our meals were fabulous! The gluten free menu had a lot of options. We plan on being "regulars" here due to the great service, fine food and ambiance. Highly recommend!

    The place was very fancy so I thought we would get the normal fancy small plate of food... But not here the food is amazing it's like your Italian grandma cooked for you at home. The amount of food leaves you full! The pricey are high, but worth it once in a whole to have a great meal.

    This is our go-to place for a celebration or special occasion. The food is ALWAYS good and for whatever reason we always act surprised at how good it is. Seriously delicious. Great date night, great view, amazing food and love the Solstice martini! I wish we could go here more often, we would if it was more affordable...but whenever we leave we both agree that it was worth it.

    My husband and I went there for a late lunch, since we couldn't get a dinner reservation because they were booked solid, to celebrate our 33 years anniversary. Our server was Isabel and I just happened to mentioned to her when we first arrived that it was our first time there and we were celebrating our anniversary, she congratulated us and when about her job, which by the way she was very good at, took the time to explain all the dishes to us and make recommendations. At the end of our dinner she came out with a piece of chocolate cake with a candle as a complimentary for our celebration which caught us by surprise that she actually paid attention to that detail. The food was very good we enjoyed it very much. Can't wait to go again.

    We have dined at alma nove quite a few times before and have always had a great experience, this time it was not good, the calamari was way to over cooked and the cod tasted like it had gone off!!! I've had these 2 dishes before and loved them, our server was quite ignorant at the beginning of the night but became nicer as the night went on, she also disappeared for long periods!

    We had a wonderful evening and a lovely dinner with friends at this restaurant's great location in Hingham. The food and drinks were quite satisfactory, although I had expected more from the restaurant. This was my first time dining at Alma Nove and there was nothing at our table that I found to be outstanding (although the apps, salads, entrees and desserts were all quite good).

    Took my parents here for their anniversary. The food was outstanding! I would definitely recommend the potato crusted calamari, the batter was much crispier than the traditional fried calamari and the calamari itself was very tender and the mustard aoli was delish! Would have liked to sat outside to enjoy the beautiful views but weather was not cooperating.

    My husband and I shared an adventure in food with my sister and her husband at Alma Nove. The food was....well....EXQUISITE. Servers were very friendly but not imposing. We were lucky enough to be present when filming for "The Wahlburgs" which added some fun. Discussed how much we enjoyed the food with Paul and had a picture with Alma who was very friendly. Back to the food....I feel like it was the best I've eaten anywhere!

    I took my Mom to Alma Nove for her 52nd Birthday with my Grandmother, Brother, Sister, and Boyfriend. We all loved our food even my picky brother. It was beautiful in the Restaurant and the only critique I would have would be that the Birthday chocolate cake was really dry and when I had called earlier in the day I had told them my mom would prefer creme brûlée so she did not eat her birthday cake. I would come back but only with my boyfriend for a special occasion and I would love to sit by the fire outside. The restaurant was dark and romantic and I can't wait to come again definitely with a smaller party.

    We'd heard plenty of recommendations about Alma Nove before, but took our time getting around to actually going. Now I wish we had gone sooner! The food was stellar, both apps and mains were inventive, perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious. The duck and the meatballs were especially good. Service was prompt and our server was knowledgable, and the location is obviously great by the water in the Hingham Shipyard. Looking forward to going back soon!
