  • Not What it Was

    The food was barely mediocre. The old chef truly cared about the quality and sustainability of his products but now they have one who cares more about the money. The food quality was pretty good but the preparation was only fair. My salad was swimming in dressing and to their credit, they look it off the bill. The meatball for which they are suppose to be so famous for, was very good but I would hardly call it the best I ever had as advertised. And the eggplant parmesan was nothing special at all. The view of course is spectacular other than the big Palms sign at eye level. There are so many better restaurants in Las Vegas around this price point that I prefer, I doubt there would be an occasion to come back here.

    There's a lot of restaurant competition in Las Vegas. If you're going to serve a $43 signature dish, NOVE Spaghetti (seafood spaghetti), the seafood should be prepared to perfection. The lobster, crab, and shrimp were all overcooked. Disappointing. However, we enjoyed the service, atmosphere, and spectacular views!

    Four of us looking for a nice meal with a view in Vegas and we were not disappointed. Can't understand all the negative reviews I saw posted. Each part of the meal was served very hot, very tasty and very promptly. The view of the Strip is unique and great. Very good meal and we would return. Sorry to see that it have fallen off the places to eat in Vegas list as the entire experience was first class.

    This Italian restaurant atop the fantasy tower at the Palms has one of the best views of the Strip and LV valley available. Their service is great as they use two servers per table. The menu is a nice mix of Italian fare equally balanced between meat and seafood offerings. Their beef carpacicio is to die for and the whole grilled branzino is a savory treat.

    I searched high and low for a nice scenic place to have a nice dinner with my husband to celebrate my wedding anniversary. Nove was perfect in every way. The food was fantastic. The view from the top floor was fantastic. The service was amazing. Our server was super friendly. And everyone we encountered was super nice and attentive. The really made it feel like the special occasion it was. The next time I'm in Vegas and want a nice dinner I will be returning.

    I had been to this restaurant previously with a group of friends a few years ago & we had had such a great experience that I decided to bring my partner & friends again for a visit. It was a lot quieter this time. The food was mostly very good although my osso bucco was a bit tougher than I think it should have been. The service could not be faulted, excellent. The view from the restaurant is magnificent, you're up on the 51st floor. It is quite pricey though so don't expect a cheap evening!

    This restaurant was fantastic and made even better by having gluten free options for me, including pasta! I highly reccommend the NOVE spaghetti...the seafood in it was so tender and well cooked. The caprese salad was also a big hit, with the inventive pine nuts and pesto, it made it extra special. The ambience is amazing, and the view at night is tough to beat! My only critique is that the entrees and soup were a little heavy on the pepper, but no doubt still delicious!

    This was my second visit to Nove and it had been awhile. I had forgotten how wonderful everything from the ambiance (set high atop the Palm's Hotel), the view, the service and of course the food had been. Everything was spectacular! I had met a friend and it was so good we had completely lost track of time, we both had the special Halibut which was prepared to perfection. I can't say enough good things about the wait staff, everyone was beyond accommodating. If you find yourself in Vegas and want to get away from the usual suspects on the strip please give Nove a try, you will not be disappointed!

    Nove Italiano is very pretty and has a gorgeous view high above Las Vegas. The early courses of our meal were well-prepared and tasty, but the entree unfortunately fell short -- we ordered the evening's special, a ribeye prepared Oscar style, and found it fairly tasty, but very chewy, didn't seem to be the quality of beef one would expect from such a nice, pricey restaurant. The service was exceptionally pleasant, but unfortunately very slow -- the servers may have been overloaded. Took forever to place our order and get our food. Despite the fact it was our anniversary and we'd like to have finished with dessert, we had to pass in order to leave in time to catch a ticketed show. We'll probably return, but this visit fell a bit short.

    This was our first time at NOVE and we had a great meal. The location at the top of one of the Palm's towers makes for a great view. The service was great and the food could compete with or beat most Italian restaurants in town. I wouldn't say it was the best Bolognese sauce I've ever had, but it was still very good. Their beef Carpaccio was very good - again not the best I've every had, but very good. I also thought the prices were quite reasonable for the quality of the food and as compared to the pricing of the restaurants on the strip. We'll definitely go back.

    Mi fiance and I went to this restaurant during our visit to Vegas to try the view and the italian food. While the ambiance and the view were excellent, the menu was good but maybe not as spectacular as we expected. The cheesecake dessert, though, was beyond amazing. I would recommend it for the view, just don't expect to be amazed with the food.

    Nove was an interesting find. I went there with a friend who is a bit of an expert on Italian food & wine. We were pleasantly surprised to find some very traditional items on the menu and an impressive wine list with some excellent Italian wine selections not seen often. Nove is well worth a visit to The Palms. When the check comes, you find find that you enjoyed a nice dinner for much less than the overpriced venues at the larger Vegas resorts.

    Nove had very good food in a nice space with a view from a high floor. The service was OK, but I think that had more to do with the fact that they didn’t have enough servers working — our server seemed to be running a LOT of tables. We had the Salumi appetizer and although it was excellent, lots of Italian meats and cheeses and a full pizza, it should be scaled to the number of people — it was way too much food for 2. For dinner, I had the Lobster Pizza, which was kinda like a lobster/arugula salad on a flat bread — it was perfect for me, light and fresh. Hubby had the Shrimp Scampi, it was a good sized portion, lots of shrimp and well-cooked but it was a little bland, could have used more scampi flavor.

    Staying at The Palms in Las Vegas recently, my wife and I decided to try out Nove Italiano. The entire experience was utterly fantastic. From the moment we arrived at the reservation desk at the base of the Fantasy Tower, we were totally impressed with the professionalism and efficiency with which we were whisked away to an Italian paradise. The staff was superlative and both helpful and knowledgable throughout our dining experience. It was by far one of the most enjoyable meals we have ever had. The atmosphere was stunning and the food was heavenly. Oh, yes, we intend to let as many friends as possible know about this dining gem. Bravo, Nove! P.S. Try the Shrimp Francaise. The sauce is the best I've ever tasted.

    My group and i enjoyed our recent experience at NOVE in The Palms Casino. I made the reservation on opentable and requested a dessert or small cake for a birthday we were celebrating. Not only did they provide a beautiful cake at the end of our meal, but even the chef came out to sing. It was very nice. The food was good.... nothing spectacular. Maybe a bit pricey for what you get but the abmience, view and service made up for it.

    We were in town for a birthday celebration and arrived late for our reservation (coordinating large groups is like herding cats). The restaurant easily accomodated us and provided a perfect evening after a long day. The serving team was prompt and available without hovering and the recommendations for appetizers and main courses were spot on. After the meal, the staff provided a birthday dessert (without request) and access to the Ghost bar night club located in the hotel for our entire group. We had window seating with an amazing view of the strip which stimulated a lot of conversation - request when booking. Thank you to the staff at Nove for making the night unforgettable and for treating us like family!!

    NOVE was a disappointment. High hopes, but no amazing experience. Starters were very nice. Drinks were watered down. Main course was a big flop for both my wife and I. We didn't stick around for desert. Had an amazing view of the giant Palms sign outside the window. Only strip views we could tell were from an upper level dining area reserved for large parties (or very wealthy clients?). $180 for a disappointing dinner. I haven't found great Italian in Vegas and may just give up after this experience.

    First time dining at this establishment. Staff was very friendly. Great setting. Lots of room between tables which we love. Just hate places that try to cramp in as much tables as they can. The shrimp francaise was excellent, fresh and delicious. Lobster pizza was great with chunks of lobster meat and not oily at all. Ended the meal with Tiramisu, ok but could better. Overall experience was great. Would want to go back and try other items on their menu.
