Novitá - New York City
I've dined at Novita oftenI've dined at Novita often over many years and never been disappointed. The food is glorious, the service is professional. The restaurant has no decor, and tables are jammed uncomfortably close together in a tight space, but who cares when the food is so consistently top-notch?5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for Mother's DayTip-top service, great food! Made our family Mother's Day outing perfect!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMRemains excellentWe went on a Saturday night after making online reservations. We were seated immediately.

Highly recommended.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLike to eat here early becauseLike to eat here early because the small room gets very noisy come 7:30. Fantastic bread and bread sticks.

The food is consistently wonderful, the service is solicitous. Novita has two faults: Decor is minimal, and tables are too close together for comfort. But the restaurant's kitchen redeems everything.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service. A little pricey but well worth it for quality food in significant portions.

Dessert was spectacular.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNovita's food and serviceNovita's food and service are so good that the uninspired decor and cramped seating are irrelevant. In a city that offer an abundance of great Italian restaurants, Novita is among the best.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat little restaurant, serviceGreat little restaurant, service and food was excellent.1/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMy chief complaint about Novita:My chief complaint about Novita: It's cramped. The dining room is small, and so many tables and chairs have been wedged into the room that patrons and the wait staff have a tough time getting around. Nevertheless, Novita is usually jammed -- and with good reason. The food is dependably glorious, and the staff is graciously accommodating. My wife and I dine at Novita gladly -- most recently to celebrate New Year's Eve. Because of Novita's ethereal food and gracious reception, it's one of our favorite restaurants.12/31/2012 12:00:00 AMA wonderful dining experienceThe food and service at Novita were exceptional. We decided on a late lunch and the timing was perfect. The Osso Buco special of the day was delicious beyond description. Not inexpensive but well worth it.12/11/2012 12:00:00 AM
