  • "So happy to have found this local gem! Food was tasty, but the real winning point here is the exceptional service of friendly helpful wait staff. Ambience is also romantic-lite and a nice date night find. Definitely recommend!"

  • "We had dinner there twice. Both times were excellent. Food was different, not your typical Italian restaurant. A must try"

  • "Nove Italian Bistro is a terrific spot for a romantic dinner or a special dinner with friends. The food is absolutely great. The calamari pepperoncini is a tasty way to start the meal, along with the Nove Salad, which includes arugula, toasted almonds, candied walnuts and goat cheese with a champagne vinaigrette. The Sacchettini is a unique and tasty choice as an entree _ beggar's purse shaped pasta filled with artisanal cheese and pears. The Chicken Milanese is also very good, and it was a tough choice trying to decide between that and the Chicken Scarpariello. Highly recommend Nove!"

  • "Service was outstanding, restaurant was warm and lovely. The entrees were excellent. I had a juicy stuffed pork chop and my bf had a very good surf n turf (although a TINY lobster tail). The big issues were the appetizer and wine list. We shared calamari that was soggy and didn't come with sauce. Calamari should either be grilled and delicate or fried and crunchy. The wine list was pretty bad. I looked for a good italian red and the list was polluted with lots of junky Chiantis...no good mid range italian reds. I settled on a hearty California Zin which was great (the waiter even decanted it without me asking!). But the selection overall is really bad. With wine and appetizer improvements, this place would be phenomenal."

  • "The food was excellent, the atmosphere is wonderful!! Tthe restaurant was very busy but all of the staff was kind and accommodating! Our original reservations were for 4 and they were able to adjust it to 6 people without hesitation even though they had several parties!! We will definitely be going back!"

  • "I live on the North Shore, and when I couldn't get a reservation at any of my favorite local restaurants, I decided to venture out to the South Shore to celebrate my Mom's & husband's birthdays. I was so very pleased with my choice. From requesting a "warm" table at the time of the reservation, (which was provided), to the excellent, friendly wait staff, to the wine choices & delicious/interesting foods, my family's experience at Nove was all very positive. I will recommend this restaurant to my fellow foodies, and plan to return many times."

  • "I've been to Nove three times and every time I've been there it has been great! It is a little on the expensive side though, therefore I will definitely go back , but only on special occasions."

  • "Dinner was enjoyable. Risotto appetizer was very good. Steak option was also enjoyable. Have been to restaurant several times and never disappointed."

  • "Food was great ! I loved the food, and it was adequately priced. It was very busy but is to be expected of a good restaurant. My only minor complaints were the waiter seemed to be very busy and it seem to take a while to get the main course but the food was worth it. Also i was seated next to a large group and they were very loud and obnoxious but thats not the restaurant's fault! All that aside it was a great experience, loved the food and the price. Would highly recommend it to anyone and would go back ! I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO RECOMMEND THE CHOCOLATE LAVA CAKE FOR DESSERT !!!!"

  • "Although we have eaten in Nove many times, this past Sunday was special as we were celebrating our daughter's (& future son-in-law) engagement. The food was delicious - our main course was "Sunday Sauce". Wow.....meatballs, sausage, etc., on a bed of rigatoni! Very large portions. Everything was fresh and tasty. Our servers were very attentive and accommodating and we spent a lovely afternoon celebrating this very special event in our lives."

  • "Nove is one of the better restaurants on Staten Island. Conisdering the quality of the food, the ambience and the high level of service, the cost is reasonable. Entrees are priced at the level of better restaurants on Staten Island, but Nove's quality, presentation, decor and service are better than its peers."
