Diner Reviews
  • "This restaurant has exceptional food and wonderful service in a romantic setting. At the end of August however they are changing it over to a Brick Oven Pizzeria. Rumor has it though that the head chef Mario will be opening his own restaurant in Staten Island in the fall. Curious to see how both ventures turn out, but given the track record of Nove, they both should be marvelous."

  • "This is the first time we went to Nove and was so impressed with not only the food, but the service! We were not rushed at all and really enjoyed everything about the restaurant. When we first walked in and was seated at our table, we sat down and immediately there was a waiter there to take our drink order. I thought to myself, this is going to be a "rush job" dinner! Instead, after they brought our drinks, another waiter came over, explained the menu and answered our questions regarding the menu choices. Can't say enough about the restaurant and would highly recommend!!"

  • "Nove is one of the best restaurants in Staten Island. It offers great, freshly prepared food, professional and friendly service, an elegant, but comfortable ambience, and reasonable prices. Unfortunately, it's changing over to a pizza/panini restaurant in mid-August, so go now to experience a fantastic meal."

  • "My wife and I went for dinner on a Tuesday night and were surprised at how empty the restaurant was (only one other table was filled). The other table left soon after we ordered and we had a private dining experience. We felt like royalty. The food was excellent, the service was impeccable (waiter Michael), and as there was a weeknight prix fixe menu the price was reasonable for the quality of the food that we had. Overall, a great dining experience."

  • "Very disappointed in this new menu, limited selections.. .Salad very skimpy, walnuts in salad almost non existent. Entree of branzino tasteless, fried rosemary on top of fish looked good but did not add to flavor. Bread selection was poor. Until now our previous dining experiences have been very positive. This meal was a major disappointment. "

  • "It's refreshing to know that a culinary wizard exists in Nove's kitchen !!!! His technique and creativity should be applauded! First there are some extraordinary dishes bring offered like the ravilolo with fried egg-- superb, like a piece of heaven! Chefs creativity with octopus also needs to be recognized as he utilizes in a beautiful pasta dish with pesto and tomatoes! Finally, let's not forget the zeppoles appetizer which are not only lite and airy but are bursting with a magnitude of flavor!! Thank you Chef for a decadent meal!"

  • "Know that Nove usually has a limited menu on holidays should have been my first reason to pass. Not any traditional Italian choices. I personally think my salmon wash microwaved because how hot it was in the center. Desert was prepared and the Tiramisu was still frozen. Had to ask three times for bread which must have also been frozen because that was cold. Also 5 people 1 glass of wine $300. Been there a few other times and was very happy with food and service. My advice stay away for holidays."

  • "I have dined here several times and they never disappoint!! This was a Mother's Day dinner and I have to say the menu was STELLAR!!! Braised rabbit, grilled quail, guanciale... a foodies dream! Kudos to the Chef for bringing such opulent fare to the table. Service was perfect as well with prompt attention to each and everyone on such a hectic dining day. Bravo to the whole experience!!! "

  • "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."

  • "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."
