Diner Reviews
  • "The food was good... Some things better than others... I would recommend more seasoning in the pasta dishes because the flavors were there but fell short (opinion from a person who grew up with authentic, homemade Italian cooking). The cheese and meat board special was delicious and so was the special salad. The portion sizes are huge, which I love because I love having left overs. The server was excellent and very knowledgable! He made the experience fun! All of the staff we encountered were very friendly. We ate outside and it was very lovely and quiet, which was nice for our date night away from our child. I would definitely go back to try other dishes. The wine list is very nice as well!"

  • "On a crowded Saturday night, we were offered to dine outside for a quieter experience. Well, we got it ! The patio was beautiful, table cloths, great view of the back hill and definitely more intimate. From the fig salad, to the ribeye special, every course was spectacular. Great service and delicious food, Wilton's best kept secret is always consistent and our home away from home. One of the best Italian restaurants around..."

  • "We were visiting Saratoga for an arts weekend and chose Nove for our anniversary dinner. Although this is not a candle-lit romantic room, the whole experience was so wonderful that it certainly qualified as romantic. The food was amazingly delicious, wine by the glass and cocktails were excellent. Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable. The menu is varied enough so that you can order a pizza or a stuffed veal chop. Can't wait to go back."

  • "We attended a wine dinner last night (5/6/14) that was incredible. We have been to many other wine dinners at Nove and they are always great ; however, last night was over the top. Danillo, Chef Brian and the staff pulled out all the stops to create an amazing culinary experience. California wines were featured and they were expertly paired. Oysters and champagne through all the courses to the lamb chops perfectly cooked with a cab that was crazy good. The dinner also featured chilled lobster with Dijon aioli, home made pasta with a light cream pesto and sun dried tomatoes and the grande finale which was a decadent chocolate cake. If you haven't been here, run not walk and have one of the best meals ever!!! Thank you for a great night. "

  • "I went with a group of friends and we all had an outstanding meal. We made reservations and were seated immediately. The service was good, the décor is lovely and is very clean. My only issue was that it is "very dark" in the restaurant and at times I had trouble seeing the small print on the menus. I will definitely go back."

  • "We went to Nove' for a girls' night out, we started with a few drinks at the bar, the bartender, who was very friendly, suggested us a few "feature" martinis.. they were delicious and very "springy", all the girls love them ! Once we were ready, we had our drinks carried to our table by our server.. the restaurant appeared very nice and clean on the inside, everyone was polite, and very personable. our server explained to us the specials of the evening, we ordered delicious appetizers, continuing onto our dinner, one of us ordered a ribeye special with melted gorgonzola cheese that was mouth watering! we ended our great night sharing dessert! all around a great time for all of us, we will definitely be back for our next girls night out!"

  • "The exterior does not do justice to the inside look. Nicely decorated, absolutely great service and outstanding selection.Both the appetiser and wine selections were broad and excellent. For the main couse we had the Mako shark special and the Veal parmesan- they were perfect! Highly recommend you visit."

  • "We were visiting Saratoga for a children's chess tournament and wanted a good meal for parents and kids. Nove was a great choice. Service was friendly and food was top quality; everyone was happy."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Nove is surprisingly attractive inside despite the plain exterior. The staff was very informative about the menu items and the food was very good. The only negative for the evening was the sparklers they set off for a birthday guest had a horrible, very strong odor that because of the low ceilings lingered long enough to ruin your appetite."

  • "My husband and I wanted to go somewhere new to us and had heard wonderful things about Nove. Well they're all true! The food, service and atmosphere were really second to none. Can't wait to return"

  • "Nove was recommended to me by a coworker, and it definitely earned his high praises. I made reservations for a Valentine's dinner on the day after Valentine's and everything went perfectly. Our reservation was ready almost immediately, the meal options all sounded excellent, and we had fresh warm bread to eat. We had the bison ribeye and the penne vodka; both dishes were perfect and in particular I found the ribeye to be cooked to perfection and was favorably portioned to me. I will certainly recommend Nove to others and return myself!"

  • "Visited on Friday night, a group of 5. Service was very good. I had the Sole Franciase. It was very flavorful, the fish was a little watery. Two visitors in our group ordered the Veal Marsala. The meal consisted of two slices of veal. Was very good, but on one order, one of the pieces of veal was not eatable, it was very tough. The deserts were excellent. Excellent wine list."

  • "We eat out almost every night of the week because of our schedules. We don't write many reviews. We tried Nove because the reviews on yelp looked good.We did not have a good experience. Our waiter was inattentive and cold. We had three appetizers, two specials and two regular menu entrees. All were at the most okay. There are so many wonderful restaurants in Saratoga, this is not one of them. If your looking for delicious Italian food try Mio Pasta.... You will love it. From a frequent diner and a previous restaurant owner....and her fellow diners (husband and two adult children) Bon Appetite!"

  • "I'm sure this restaurant for non-Italians is great. However, having tasted real Italian cooking from family, I was overly disappointed. Nothing spectacular about the menu either. Moreover, none of the food tasted home made and the pasta tasted like it was bought days ago from a local supermarket. Save your money, and dine elsewhere. A shame too for the staff was great, very friendly and gave great service!"

  • "The waiter was well versed in the menu and provided some good suggestions. Two entrees: pasta off the menu was excellent and the fish special which was good."

  • "Nove is like being home with better food and service! We always get a warm greeting when we arrive, the tables are comfortable, service is friendly and prompt and the food is delicious. Traditional dishes like Sole Francese and lasagna are wonderful, as are the specials and their pizza is unbelievably good! We love Nove because of its food and overall ambience."

  • "The food was awesome as usual. I called ahead of time becauseI was celebrating both my children's college graduation and was presented with an awesome cake. I was disappointed with the waitress. She was very un friendly and appeared annoyed because we wanted to know the specials. She does not fit in with the other wait staff not to mention she couldn't even acknowledge our celebration. She appears lost and out of her element. This will not stop us from returning because this is our families favorite restaurant but I will request not to have this waitress again. We have been here several times and have always been impressed with the male wait staff."
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "The food is always great here. However, I HATE when dinner comes before we are done with an appetizer. The food runner stood next to me waiting for me to finish my app before setting the dinner down - awkward! We will return, but with the hopes that next time they don't rush us."
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "We love Nove!!! Best food ever! We travel an hr and a half just to eat because it's so delicious. We love the Alfredo an one of us always gets that then the second dish is always something new so we can try other things without sacrificing the yummy Alfredo. Our waitress was extremely sweet and attentive. Had a great evening with great friends and the best Italian food ever!"
