Used the online reservation system and it worked perfectly. Lots of restaurants will only take reservations for large parties but there were only 3 of us on one occasion and a reservation for a Saturday night was no problems. Food, appetizers, dessert were all excellent.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe "almost" best of all worldsIn Providence, one of the best places to get the entire dining experience. Great view for Waterfire, way-above-average food, and excellent service. There are restaurants which may outshine Nuovo on any one of these facets, but not all of them. This is the place to go for an "evening out".4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMStill WonderfulHadn't been in quite a while, but l wasn't disappointed. So glad to have a nice lunch with a friend. Will always love this restaurant!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved many aspects includingWe loved many aspects including the ambience, service, & overall food. However, we had read about the lemon sole & went specifically to try it. It was cool, not warm. A little disappointing.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a lovely table by theWe had a lovely table by the window and our waitress graciously arranged for my friend and I to share a delicious entree of grilled salmon and nicely prepared spinach and mashed sweet potatoes. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire dining experience.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI have not been here in overI have not been here in over twelve years and it did not stand out in my mind back then. I have to say I was pleseantly surprised. The food was excellent, I would highly recommend the lamb shank. Everyone in my party of 4 was very pleased with their meals. The service was top notch, but not overbearing as can happen sometimes when servers try to be attentive they end up hovering. Overall, an excellent time and highly recommended.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently DeliciousWhether you're attending a business luncheon or having a romantic dinner for two, Cafe Nuovo never fails to deliver. A creative menu, excellent preparation, and consistency are their calling cards. I have worked in that building for 15 years and have been fortunate enought to dine at Nuovo many, many times. I don't recall ever having a meal that was less than outstanding.
Outdoor seating along the river is available when the weather permits. I highly recommend choosing this option!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful Easter lunchHad a wonderful Easter lunch for a party of ten.

We were seated at a table for two next to a window with a view of the river. The restaurant was very crowded, but we were able to converse without a problem. The service was outstanding. Vincent was extremely attentive, chose an excellent glass of red wine for me and gave some helpful direction on our choice of entrees. We started by sharing the beet salad. Fantastic! Light, yet rich with flavor. We both had entree specials, which were delicious. Dessert was an assortment of four flavors of sorbet, which were pleasing to the palate and refreshing. We had such a wonderful experience that we made reservations to go back the following week for dinner with our daughter.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial night outThis was a top notch experience. The service was professional with out being stuffy. The food was spot on from apps to main course, the plate designs were a feast for they eyes.

made for a very nive evening3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA business colleague and IA business colleague and I had dinner at Cafe Nuovo. The food was excellent, substantial, and beautifully prepared and plated. I am a foodie, so I can be picky about everything. I can't offer even one negative to the food experience. But what was "over the top" was the service! The staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and able to accommodate my dining companion's special requests with ease. I can't imagine adding to the experience by watching River Fire in season, but that would make it unimaginably great. We would recommend this restaurant on all counts.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCrowded. Great service. TunaCrowded. Great service. Tuna tasted like band aids, questionable mojito, but escargot, pumpkin ravioli and pot of chocolate were divine.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice place!
