    My wife and I went here for lunch on our two year anniversary. It was great. Worth the drive out to Hingham. Service was just a tiny bit slow but still great! They weren't rushing us out the door and we were able to sit, talk, and eat at a comfortable pace. Food was excellent. Top notch. And at the end they knew it was our anniversary so they gave us two pieces of chocolate cake FOR FREE. How awesome was that? I was not expecting that and they just came out with it at the end. My wife and I are foodies so we are always willing to make the drive to try new places and foods. We will be making the over an hour drive to go to this place again. Great place. Outdoor seating is awesome as well as long as its nice out.

    My girlfriend and I went for dinner on a last second decision. The hostess was extremely nice and accommodating when I called in to let them know I'd be 10-15 minutes late for our reservation. When we got there they were just as friendly and didn't rush us to our table or anything. The entire experience was excellent - our waitress was funny and knew the menu inside and out. Drinks didn't stop until after our meal either. The tasting plates for $10 were awesome because there were so many delicious sounding meals we couldn't decide. We will be back!

    Delicious scallops. Butternut ravioli were a bit over cooked and lacked flavor. Creme bruelle was good. Eyores Requeim (drink) was not to my liking, too bitter. But I suppose it is as the name suggests...

    Not going to lie, we watch the show regularly and had an opportunity to visit Boston so we decided to have dinner here. By far one of the top 3 meals I have ever had. The food was cooked to perfection, the drinks were well mixed, and the desserts were heavenly! The wait staff was very polite and attentive. Overall if we lived closer we would definitely make Alma Nove a regular date spot!

    We've been here twice in the past month. Both times for special occasions. It can be pricey but the food is well worth it and won't leave hungry. The noise level can be a bit much if you're on the floor - but better in a booth. We will definately be back and spread the word.

    We arrived and were promptly seated for our reservation. Several varieties of Bloody Mary's were on the cocktail menu. We ordered two different ones and both were excellent. Appetizers of pork meat balls came with a light tomato sauce on a polenta base. Would go back in a minute. Lunch for three was a bit pricy, but well worth the trip.

    We had a very relaxing dinner experience on Sunday evening. Staff was friendly, but not overly friendly. We were allowed to switch items on the menu for something more fitting to our diet. Great wine for a reasonable price. Great tasting food, good size portions! Although the place was packed we were still able to have a conversation, without having to raise our voices. Worth to repeat.

    We chose Sunday because the dinner menu was available at lunch. We had previously enjoyed tasty options for a Saturday lunch and had decided to return for a Birthday celebration a month later. Alma Nove is now our favorite restaurant! Menu selections have great variety, the service is wonderful and the food is spectacular, what more could you want. . . Deserts are just the right size, beautifully presented and are delightful. We will be returning often.

    On the plus side the food, staff and the service could not have been better. On the negative side, Saturday night is a mob scene at the bar and very little space to even stand. Outdoors might have helped relieve some of the crowding had it not been for the rain. The middle of the week might be a better choice to dine. Having said all that it was still a great meal and would go back there again.

    Had a reservation but arrived early and when we checked in they were more than willing to accommodate us for an earlier time. Loved the painting above the couch and the bathroom was very clean and spacious. The food was excellent and really affordable at lunch time. Lobster risotto is a must! The service was also good. The only disappointment was not seeing Mark Wahlburg!

    Due to a mix up on our end, we drove 10 hours to get to Alma Nove for dinner. They were so gracious and delayed our reservation by over an hour to give us time to get there. And the long drive was well worth it! The food was unbelievably good--some of the best we've had anywhere. The service was wonderful. It was too cool to eat outdoors but the fire in the pit outside looked very nice. It was s bit loud indoors but not so obnoxious as to be offensive--but certainly not a soft and quiet atmosphere. Family photos of the Wahlburgs made it personal and fun, knowing that this is their place. Though we didn't see any family members, it was still a great place to have a memorable dinner.

    Everything about this place was amazing. I was full and kept eating and that is rare for me. I am from AZ and people said I had to eat Italian food when I came here because it was better here, this place lived up to what they told me. Creme Brule is my favorite dessert and this is the best that I have ever had. I will be back next time I come to Boston! I have already told people to eat here if they ever visit the Boston area!

    The ambiance was perfect, food was delicious and the Martinis were excellent. The waitress was attentive, but did not hover, as my 2 friends & I chatted. She learned it was my birthday and without prompting, put a candle in my scrumptious carrot cake and wished me a happy birthday. I look forward to a return visit.

    Perfect choice for my fiancés birthday dinner! Our reservations were ready as soon as we arrived, asked for outside table and one was available. Wait staff very professional, friendly making our dinner even more enjoyable. Menu - so many great selections it was difficult to decide on what to order, wanted to try one of everything! Loved option to try smaller portions of the first course. We will definitely be back in the very near future and bring our friends next time. Only thing that would have been nice is to be able to make reservations to sit outside especially by the fire, since it was a special occasion, but understand everyone probably wants that same reservation too.

    Simply the best dining experience...It was well worth the 4 hour trip from Queens to Hingham Ma. Everything about the restaurant was exactly the same as depicted on the A & E show Wahlburgers... The ambiance, food, service exceeded my expectations. I also had the pleasure of dining at Wahlburgers for lunch not only were the burgers phenomenal but I also met Paul Wahlberg who was such a great sport and took time out to take a pic with me. Thank you so much for making my stay that much more memorable!

    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!
