Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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!"
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "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!"

  • "We go here all the time ! I would put Nove up against any Italian restaurant anywhere. Between Danillo who has the highest standards of any manager to Chef Brian who can make even the simplest dish worthy of awards, this place just can't be beat. If you are anywhere in the capital district, it is worth getting to Nove. You will not be disappointed and you will probably be trying to figure out how quickly you can get back. The wine list and Danillo's knowledge of wine is impressive. Trust him to recommend a bottle and I can guarantee you will be so glad you did. We just celebrated my father's 75th birthday here and they went out of their way to make sure it was memorable in every way."
    Dined on 11/20/2013
  • "I have been dining at Nove for years. In my opinion the food here is the best Italian in the Saratoga and capital district area. Great al dente pasta, great red sauce, fantastic real NYC style pizza. Favorites include the rigatoni with vodka sauce and the chicken parm! Very friendly and able to accommodate large groups easily."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "Amazing pasta dishes... Extensive wine list... Attentive service. We were very impressed with our entrees and with the house wine we had chosen. A little pricey, but the portions are large enough for some to be leftover. Will be back!!"

  • "Was in town for Farm Aid and passing through Saratoga Springs on way to Northville. Did an Open Table search, threw a dart so to speak at the results, and opted for Nove as our restaurant of choice. What a pleasant surprise. Our waitress, Brandy, couldn't have been more helpful and delightful. I ordered her recommendation, Chicken Mario - that's where the "yum" in the title comes from. My friend enjoyed her pizza. Homemade Tiramisu was light and tasty. An all-around pleasant dining experience. Now if only I didn't live 3.5 hours away, I'd make dining at Nove a weekly experience. Ciao and chow - and thanks again Brandy! Diane Dobish"

  • "Nove is a family favorite,good food, good wine, excellent and personal service. For instance, the waiter recalled that my husband really likes the manicotti and told him right away it was available, removing the suspense from his evening. It is not every large restaurant we would venture into during the race season because of crowding and noise but Nove is the exception."
