    4 OF US WENT TO DINER AT OVENELLA ON SATURDAY AT 7 PM. SEATED TO A BOOTH. ORDERED FOOD, ALL OK SO FAR. THEN ABOUT 20 ROUDY MIDDLE AGED WOMEN CAME IN AND WERE SEATED ABOUT 10 FEET FROM US. THEY WERE HAVING A PARTY. THEY WERE THE LOUDEST, MOST RUDE PATRONS I HAVE EVER SEEN. THEY WERE SHOUTING, SCREAMING, JUMPING ON THE CHAIRS AND BOOTHS AND HAVING A GREAT TIME. WE HOWEVER COULD NOT EVEN TALK TO EACH OTHER. WE ALL GOT A HEADACHE, OTHER PATRONS WERE MAD AND STARTED TO LEAVE. WE ASKED FOR THE CHECK. ON THE WAY OUT I COMPLAINED TO THE OWNER. SHE SAID, I AM SORRY. WELL I AM SORRY THAT DOES NOT CUT IT. THE EVENING WAS RUINED. WHAT A WASTE...

    I've driven by Ovenella for years, and finally checked it out. I was impressed with the quality of the food, ordering fish (salmon and CRISPY YELLOWTAIL SNAPPER). They were large sized, juicy, with great exceedingly well prepared vegetables. All their salads are very large, easy to share one regular sized one between two people. Loved the MISTO salad. The Apple Tart is huge, and the fruit with sorbet in pastry shell was a surprise and incredible. Only downside: very bright lighting...

  • Ovenella Is Really Good
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 6/22/2013
    Few Italian restaurants are as consistent and as refreshing in their cooking approach as Ovenella. I've been there three times now and it is really good. I highly recommend it for the food, the ambiance and the attention to detail from the staff. The Super Tuscan wine I had last time was fab for the price ($35).

    The restaurant looks like a glorified pizza parlor. The dishes are expensive--unless you get the pizza. Everything is a la carte. As a result, it's too expensive for what it is

    How can you improve on "PERFECTION!!". From the moment you enter and greeted by the friendly host, and then being seated and served by the most wonderful and accommadating waitress, Marissa. Anything we asked, even if it was not on the menu, she would tell us no problem. This was our 6th visit and will not be our last. Thank you for a wonderful evening!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP
    Dined on 3/23/2013
    Our repeat visit did not disappoint. Somehow the combination of traditional Italian food and nouveau bistro fare works in a smart casual relaxed setting. Outstanding were the pleasant service, the bread basket with both a rosemary focaccia and a garlic flatbread. We raved about the polpettone appetizer and the preparation of fish. Notable and valuable is the supervision of the owner who spoke to all. Good for him. My only regret was a wine I ordered called Sasyr, a super Tuscan style. At a moderate price it was way overpriced and simple, a table wine of no distinction. Restaurants buy in large lots after someone tastes something appealing. This one slipped by in my opinion.

    This restaurant always satisfies, regardless of what is ordered. The only criticicism I have would be to ban smoking at the outside tables. This would make all parts of the restaurant accessible to all patrons. There have been several occasions when we wanted to dine outside but tables were already occupied by smokers. We refuse to be around secondary smoke even if it is outdoors.

    It was our first time and we will go back. Great menus with lots of our favorites. To start the clams and mussels were great as well as the calamari. Angry shrimp were large and very good not angry at all and the lasagna and meatballs were also excellent. It was a chilly night but would go back and request the patio and try some of the pizza.

    If this had been our first time we would never go back even though the food was incredible. The restaurant has had more turnovers in managers in 6 months then any other restaurant we frequent. The manager left the night before and no one seemed to know what was going on. It took almost 20 minutes to get our drinks. We ordered soup the bowl was a quarter of the way filled and was served without any spoons. We asked the person who brought it for cheese and he never came back. We asked the hostess to get our waiter and she had no idea who it was (shouldn't she know she sat us). Someone else brought us spoons and when our waiter brought back decent bowls of soup the person that brought the spoons was yelling I already gave them spoons.

    I've been to Ovenella rwice the first time was in October. The food was delicious from the appetizers to the dessert and the service was very good. I went back in February with my sister and was disappointed. The food was nothing to brag about and the service was average. We felt like we were ignored all night long. We had an incident at our table and the manager never came to apologize. Not sure that I would go back.
