  • "Great food. Great cocktails. We enjoyed ourselves and highly reccomend it!!"

  • "We've been before it was "famous" and it was great then. Not so much now. Waitress was slow, 2 drinks we ordered never came. Calamari was very good. I had fish and chips. Fish was good but small portion and the fries were mcdonalds. Good deserts. Overall: $200 for 2 adults and 2 kids, save your $$ go somewhere else"

  • "Loved Alma Nove! Our server McKenzie was great! Chef Paul came out and said hello which was fun and the food was to die for! Seared Moroccan spiced scallops were heaven!"

  • "Our 14 year old grandson asked if we could go there to celebrate "Grammie"s" birthday. We traveled from north of Worcester and spent a fabulous evening. The food was great, the restaurant is gorgeous, the service was top-notch. My husband asked Paul if he'd stop by our table to say hello to our grandsons because they are huge fans and he very graciously did so and took a picture with them. Walked around outside after dinner and just enjoyed the entire evening. We'll certainly make the trip again."

  • " Enjoyed a week night dinner with friends we hadn't seen in a long time. The service was excellent as was the food. We were tucked in a both and it was cozy - the noise level was moderate but did not affect our conversation a clearing thunderstorm provided a gorgeous red sunset which was beautiful! The waitress was great - came by often enough and our foursome lingered talking for a time after - and we never felt pushed or rushed. A really enjoyable night. Highly recommend the chicken and the desserts; especially the spiced chocolate cake and the strawberry rhubarb crisp were worth every calorie!! Wonderful evening!"

  • "The food at Alma Nova always good, their Panini lobster sandwich is so good. This was the first time that my friends had been here and they will be back. Loved all of it. Also celebrated a friends birthday and they gave her a wonderful piece of cake. Great place, great food."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "All dishes exceeded my expectations! We had great wine, potato encrusted calamari with vinegar peppers and lemon aioli, roast duck, lobster ravioli and carrot cake. All visually enticing and perfectly prepared!"

  • "This was the 2nd time in one month I came to Alma Nove. The first time was with another couple who live in the area. The owner/chef came to our table to introduce himself & pose for a picture with me - AWESOME! This time around, I brought a girlfriend of mine prior to seeing a concert in the next town over. We arrived at 4:00pm and had a wonderful table on the patio over-looking the gorgeous marina & boats. It was the perfect way to spend an early evening in mid-summer. The hostess actually remembered me from my 1st visit, and made me feel like a "regular" and part of the family. She was so welcoming and sweet to me. I can't wait for another trip to this fabulous, delicious & gorgeous restaurant! If only I lived closer...!!!"

  • "I was so excited to visit Alma Nove after checking out Wahlburgers two times. I would recommend, the food was awesome! The waitress was so friendly and was able to answer any questions we had about the menu. My mom and aunt had a beverage and they said they didn't skimp on the alcohol!!!! The lobster sandwich was awesome, the meatballs with polenta...so good!"

  • "Food is outstanding! Had a grilled beef tenderloin grilled to perfection! Truffle whipped potatoes were delightful. My husband loved his wood-grilled swordfish with lobster mashed potatoes. Our waitress, MaryBeth, was pleasant, knowledgeable and attentive. The hostess/greeter was rude, however. We had a reservation and I was to meet my husband at the restaurant after he had worked in Boston. He got there first, on time for our reservation. He told the hostess I would be 10 min. late but that he would sit & get a drink…the hostess gave him a snotty response that it could be a problem because there are so many people on the waitlist…by the time I arrived he was seated and had JUST ordered his drink. He got the drink 5 min after I sat down!"

  • "Thank you for such a wonderful lunch. The food was awesome, the staff friendly and the ambiance wonderful. We celebrated our 51st anniversary. It was everything I thought it would be."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "We were seated quickly and our waiter was attentive, but nothing special. He did not ask us why we were at the restaurant (it was our 25th wedding anniversary) or offer to take our picture. In past visits Paul or another manager has checked in on us; not this time. The appetizer, the suppli, was fantastic. It went down hill from there. My ragu bolognese tasked like something I could make at home. My husbands dinner -- forget the name but it was pasta and sausage -- was far too rich. We splurged on dessert as it was our anniversary and my first espresso was cold -- waiter brought another hot one but first denied that it could be cold. The creme brulee was ice cold -- even the crispy top -- and tasted like cold, thick jello pudding"

  • "Best Salmon EVER hand's down. The Mediterranean chopped salad was an OMG moment! Thanks to Diane, the hostess for making things happen and we especially loved our waitress, Kristen. Great ambience and comfortable seating arrangements. ."

  • "We had enjoyed Alma Nove in the past, but were disappointed this time around. We were inside and put near the back outside door. As the evening wore on, flies began to make their way into our food due to the regular opening/closing of the back door. We had a longer wait between our salads and our meal. The waitress was courteous and professional but not engaging. The food was just okay. While there seemed to be many people on staff, no one came by to say hello and double check on things beside the waitress. Not a great night."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "We went to dinner Sunday night and had a wonderful meal and ate outside where it was gorgeous and saw the sun set. My only comment is that I made a 7 reservation and got there early to put our name in for outside dining, which they tell you you cannot reserve on line for which is fine, and we were told an hour or more for outside but they could seat us right at the window so we could see outside, etc. We declined and set we would wait as there is nice seating outside on couches and chairs. In ten minutes they found us and said they moved things around and we have a seat. Just appeared to us that they wanted to seat people inside and were trying to discourage waiting for outside. Owners, not a good tactic as it could turn off people"

  • "Was disappointed in the pasta and short ribs. We were not charged for the meal and were given dessert. The other meal (swordfish) was excellent. This was my third visit and the only time I did not like the meal. I will definitely eat there again."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Everything we tasted was fabulous! Clam chowder was thick and creamy. Calamari was lightly breaded and the mussles were in a great sauce!"

  • "We spent the weekend in Boston to do three things, one of which was to eat at Alma Nove. We had a hard time deciding among all the options on the menu but I'm so glad we chose the lobster panini (with french fries, don't skip the fries!). I hope to make it back again!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "We love this restaurant. This visit was the first time everything was not perfect. Don't order the chopped Mediterranean salad. Cucumbers were too large and tough and tomatoes were hard and not at all ripe. Otherwise beautiful view and great food."

  • "The food was excellent!! I made a special request that the staff Made sure to fulfill which made our night even more special! Thank you!!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We started with salad, which was fresh and delicious, and the dressing was good enough to dip the fresh bread in. Then our main courses, steak for two of us and gnocchi for the other two, were very good. The only complaint was that there were too many mushrooms in the gnocchi. The steaks were cooked to perfection. Dessert was also great. We will definitely go again!"

  • "the restaurant is just beautiful inside and all the staff was so friendly. the setting is right on the water and what a view it was. food is excellent and a good variety. would absolutely go there again. next time i will try dinner. way to go wallburg's"

  • "Had a reservation for 2 for about a week. We walked in and were seated immediately. The only plus I will give this restaurant. The table we were seated at was in the smallest corner directly next to the door. The table seemed out of place. We asked the waitress to see if there was another spot in the restaurant. She said yes turned around and didn't even ask the hostess! She left came back and said it was the best table in the restaurant. That was it for us. We didn't even make it to their very limited menu. If you want quality service and more variety to choose from, I suggest you look elsewhere!"

  • "We had dinner. The wine list was extensive. We had an outstanding wine at a reasonable price. The owner came out and spoke with us. The food was incredible and the cost was very reasonable."

  • "The boat service from Boston and the Shipyard atmosphere add to the experience, but the restaurant is what truly delivers! I knew my sweetheart would love it!"

  • "The Lobster Panini was the best grill cheese sandwich I ever had. The waitress' accent made her a little difficult to understand. Could not tell if she did not understand, or she just had an attitude. Nice set-up, great location and the food was very good."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "From the minute we entered Alma Nove, the staff was friendly and helpful. They were able to accommodate our outdoor seating request. The food was very good and served in a timely manner. However, I would have liked more wine 'by the glass' options. It would have been nice if they had a more festive dessert for our special birthday celebration like they do at Capitol Grille and Sorellina's in Boston."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • " We enjoyed our experience thoroughly. The room was cool, but not uncomfortably so. The menu was varied and intriguing, delivering an excellent result. Food was delicious and plentiful without over portioning. Server was very attentive. Check website ahead for prices to avoid sticker shock. Chef Paul made a dining room appearance and was gracious with those wishing photo ops."
