Anniversary dinnerMy wife and I had a really nice night and thank you Alma Nove and our waitress Amanda for "remembering" our 30th anniversary5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner onlyWe chose this place for Mother's Day brunch but failed to realize they don't serve brunch which was dissapointing. They don't really have lunch fair either, and the waitress kept saying "tonight we have" even though it was 11am. Just felt obnoxious. The dinner fare was delicious and the location is great. I'll just keep it in mind for dinner only in the future.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful for Mother's DayWe had a fabulous lunch and cant wait to go back! Service, Food and views just wonderful! I dont even want to wait for an occasion to go back, I am just planning on it.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMmothers day lunchReally good food, the apps, pasta and dessert were great. The main dishes were ok. The setting is really nice and makes the experience feel special.The waitresses were all great. Some of the hostesses were great but we also had a negative experience with one of the managers. I would recommend it for drinks and snacks outside or for a special occasion if you're going for a meal.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways good~!Good food, good service (and it was Mother's Day!)5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurantThe food and the ambience was great.

The food was outstanding & the service was great. Chef Paul greeted us as we arrived. You can't find a better restaurant than Alma Nove. Can't wait to go back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Decor, Good FoodI know it's all about the FOOD, but the decor is outstanding!
The food is good, the service is excellent and the atmosphere is party-like.
Who wouldn't want to go back for more?5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the food!You can't go wrong here, great food, great spot on the water.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great dinner with someHad a great dinner with some long time friends! Servers were super friendly and made good recommendations. Food and wine was incredible! I only wished it was warmer to have been able to dine on the patio. The views of the Marina were gorgeous. Chef/owner came out to chat with patrons. An all around lovely experience!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAll around great dining experienceI have dined at Alma Nove on at least three occasions, and have been very pleased each time. Excellent selections and service was outstanding. Portions are favorable, as well. Most recently had the scallops which were the best I've had. Very succulent, on the large side, and cooked to perfection. I'll be back!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding restaurant with a viewThe restaurant is located behind outlet mall, next to the marina. We visited in the late evening, and we still got the great vibe of the area. The outdoor seating with a central fireplace looked like a great place to enjoy a drink with friend on a cool evening.
The menu is Mediterranean, with a primary focus on Italian food, mostly seafood focused. We had their version of a Caprese salad with roasted eggplant and burrata, and it was delicious. My wife had the Prosciutto-wrapped cod with the shrimp Risotto, and the flavors complemented each other well. The wine list is approachable and reasonably priced. Our waiter was okay, not great. It was close to closing, so we didn't mind. Hopefully it was a fluke.
We will definitely return!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAlma Nove in the Hingham ShipyardAlma Nove in the Hingham Shipyard is an excellent suburban find. The decor is lovely and though always crowded, it is possible to carry on a conversation. The food is inventive but simple and very flavorful. Would definitely make a return visit to be able to sample the rest of the menu.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent. OurThe food was excellent. Our waitress was fantastic.
My original reservation was for 7 people. At the last minute I found out that 2 additional people would be joining us and the restaurant was very accommodating.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAlma Nove has always beenAlma Nove has always been a favorite local restaurant of ours, however our most recent meal there was less than stellar. My husbands sirloin steak was tough and chewy. My swordfish was ok, but not as tasty as I've had it before and the lobster mashed potatoes which normally have rather large chunks if lobster in them, had small pieces I could barely find. Maybe it was just an off night for Alma Nove - and I really hope that is the case because its a great place.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMScallops Rock!My scallops rocked! Also, my husbands steak was cooked perfectly. The flour less chocolate cake was ok, not great.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant has a beautifulThe restaurant has a beautiful view. We were there on a miserable stormy night and the restaurant was cozy with the outdoor fire burning and the smell of the wood grill.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMvery goodFood is good would like more flatbread, steak and chicken offerings. Great wine and drink menu. Service is awesome ask for Catherine she is amazing!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were surprised how goodWe were surprised how good the food was.

The only complaint is that you couldn't converse because the noise level is extremely high. That is the only drawback.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed Alma Nove so muchWe enjoyed Alma Nove so much that we are already planning our next visit. One person scheduled to attend with us was in Newton, Which was still in lock down due to Marathon Bomber, so we had a party of 2, instead of 3. Alma was gracious and still provided us a large booth. Food, service both excelled. Great staff!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMmet friends for lunch,we hadmet friends for lunch,we had been twice before and recommended it to them. they also loved the food as well as the service. will definitely return again.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were seated promptly andWe were seated promptly and got a window table as I requested. The food was excellent. The complimentary small cake in honor of our wedding anniversary was a nice and appreciated touch.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile it is very loud andWhile it is very loud and difficult for those who are remotely hard of hearing to converse with those next to each other, it was still an amazingly wonderful experience. Every bite that we took out of our many plates of food was a heavenly experience. The server did an amazing job of explaining everything clearly for us. As if that wasn't enough, the chef made a special dessert for us as my husband and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary and our upcoming move to Italy. I highly recommend this place!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experience overallWonderful experience overall - great good, atmosphere and service. Also had a great selection of inexpensive wines by the glass
which I think is a real plus.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMwhen out for birthday forwhen out for birthday for a friend

they made a mistake4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is good, Paul isThe food is good, Paul is a great chef. We had Gwen for a server so the service was excellent, but some of the other servers aren't so great. The outdoor seating is very nice and scenic in the warm weather. The only negative thing I would say is its pricey compared to other just as good, if not better,restaurants near by. Overall, a little overrated compared to great restaurants around. When you have to make a reservation a month or more in advance you expect amazing!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAlma Nove is one of our favoriteAlma Nove is one of our favorite restaurants to go to for a quiet dinner alone or out with friends. The food is consistently excellent, the service as well. Make sure to make reservations in advance because this is a popular restaurant, but if you get in, you can't go wrong.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place, have eatenLove this place, have eaten here many times..would have put this note in the 'private note to restaurant section' but wasn't enough space! At any rate, my mom ordered the minestrone soup/club sandwich special..soup was barely warm, so had to return to the kitchen to heat it. (waitress was great) but it took almost 15 minutes to heat..so my mom had almost finished her sandwich before the soup re-appeared. According to our waitress there are no microwaves..which seems great..but it might be worth buying ONE. Having to wait that long...when you know it would only take 30 seconds to heat at home is frustrating..Also, sandwich bread was drowned in butter, would be nice if you would ask folks if they want butter or not - thx!..Otherwise: great!:)4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMHave yet to have a bad timeHave yet to have a bad time at Alma Nove. Highly recommended.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AM35th Anniversary DinnerOur first visit to Alma Nove was a year ago with our family. The service was outstanding and the food was wonderful. When we were discussing where to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary, Alma Nove was a easy choice and we were not disappointed. It had been a beautiful day so we were able to have a cocktail outside by the fire. Service was terrific and our meals were fabulous. And they presented us with a small cake in honor of our anniversary. A nice touch. We will be back.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat lunch! Thoroughly enjoyedGreat lunch! Thoroughly enjoyed the ambience of Alma Nove. Terrific service and delicious food.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only thing I would notThe only thing I would not recommend is a cake! We ordered a birthday cake that was made by them that was very dry and tasteless. Other than that everything was great as usual!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my 4th time diningThis was my 4th time dining at this restaurant. Our service the previous times was outstanding. This time our waitress did not seem very attentive to us. It wasn't that service was bad but it really wasn't that good either.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerWe were sat at a nice table near the window with a view. The restaurant was full and with the restaurants size it was a little loud and hard to hear conversations at your own table. Other than the noise everything else was amazing and above par. The portions are a decent size, the chef really knows how to season and the menu had just enough choices to keep things interesting but not overwhelming. I had the mussels- excellent, cod- a little salty but perfectly cooked, and the vanilla chai cheesecake- not to sweet and a good combination.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperbSuperb as always. Wait staff was courteous and appropriately attentive. Food was outstanding. Well worth the drive and the money. Make reservations because the dining room and bar area fills up fast.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were pleasantly surprisedWe were pleasantly surprised and would definitely return again. Nice to meet the chef in person.

It is a wonderful place to relax, look at the view (a little too cold for boats) and enjoy the good service. Food is great and we look forward to special occastions there.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistant favoriteAlma Nove is a consistant favorite of ours. Aside from the wonderful views, the food is always good and the service is friendly. We love the lobster mashed potatoes!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food! Service was fabulous.Great food!

Great food (lunch) everything was delicious, beautifully presented. My wife was thrilled to have a gluten-free menu, she has celiac disease so gluten-free is essential. Great selections no matter which menu you order from! Service was friendly, professional but not overbearing. The restaurant is nicely decorated, it felt warm and inviting...we will return!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my 2nd time at AlmaThis was my 2nd time at Alma Nove and it was just as wonderful as the first! We went for lunch and had the lobster pannini which was out of this world and the french fries too!
Definately planning on coming back for dinner sometime soon.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday lunchOur birthday lunch was above outstanding! I requested a special table which was waiting for us when we arrived. Our food, as always was fantastic. This is one of our favorite restaurants on the South Shore and look forward to our next visit. They gave my husband a complimentary birthday dessert which was plenty for two people and 'wicked great'!!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMNothing else compares!I've been here several times. It's a beautifully constructed restaurant with great ocean views. During the warmer months, it's nice to sit outside on their comfortable lounge furntiture in front of the fire pit with a cocktail. You can dine outside as well. Also, they do offer a kid's menu. However, I wouldn't recommend it for small children if you are dining in the evening. This is more of a special occasion/romantic environment.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPricey (with a generous tipPricey (with a generous tip we were over $200 for 3 people and no appetizers and we all shared one dessert), but I left feeling it was worth it. No complaints on any counts, especially the food. Not very romantic, but not bad for a date. I would definitely go again.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe bar was busy so it wasThe bar was busy so it was a bit crowded while we had our drink and had to keep moving to avoid servers and other patrons. Once we were seated we had a great experience.
The lobster carbonara was delicious!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a WONDERFUL experience!What a WONDERFUL experience! Can't wait to return .3/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
