Pre Proposal Dinner
My girlfriend and I went here for an awesome dinner, and bottle of wine prior to our walk on the lakefront where I proposed! Great evening we'll never forget. She keeps talking about how nice the restaurant was and how romantic it was. I'm sure this is the place we will return to for all of our anniversaries to come!!

Very good food and an excellent place for a romantic dinner. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Did not feel rushed. Perfect Martini was just right. Potatoes Au Gratin wedge was delicious. That's not what they called it but it was excellent.

I rarely indulge in fried food, but I chose wisely when I selected the fried eggplant and shrimp app. The eggplant was fried perfectly: crisp and dry. The shrimp were perfectly cooked-still succulent and the sauce was a great complement to the dish.
Your flourless chocolate torte was divine, too.

Dined on a Thursday evening
Dined on a Thursday evening - reservations not required. Nice bar for pre dinner drinks. Appetizer a little lacking in imagination and flavor perhaps (we shared the fried oysters and brie) but my steak and my wife's cobia were excellent. Would definitely return if in the area. Dined 4/25/13.

As good as always
I first dined at Nuvolari's nearly 30 years ago. I returned recently for a friend's birthday and found it to be a lovely experience. The service was prompt and friendly. The waiter was knowledgable, did not hover, but was always there at the right times. A very nice variety on the menu. I will happily return as soon as possible.

We went to Nuvolari's as a birthday celebration. Were not expecting to even get reservations as our plans fell on Mother's Day! While there was a special menu, most of the regular items were included. Steaks were prepared as requested. A special request for a side dish change was accommodated by the Chef. Food was well-prepared and presented. A bit noisier as we dined early and there were children due to Mother's Day, but not annoyingly so.

A Wonderful Event Made Even More Wo
The Staff amd Food at Nuvolari's made a special dinner event even more special with the excellent food and the very special attention they gave us. We had the Grouper, Veal, and Mixed Seafood Main Courses and they were all excellent. The "snails & tails" and oyster appetizer s were also delicious. We all loved the bread pudding, white chocolate cheesecake, and flourless chocolate cake.

Nuvolari's is good
Nuvolari's is a reliable northshore restaurant that consistently offers good service and well-prepared dishes - especially seafood.

The dining experience was great overall! The atmosphere was very pleasant. I like that it is not too loud. The wine selection is awesome. I like that the menu is not extensive. You have just enough variations of food cuisines to choose from. I think I've ordered every item on the menu at least once from past dining occasions, and they are all very good!

First time dining
Well my wife and I had been hearing great things about this place for a long time now and boy were they right. The food was some of the best Italian I have had, my wife thought so too and she is 100% Sicilian. We will be going back again and again, and will also passing on our wonderful experience.

Best of the bunch so far
In the past two months, my new lady friend and I have dined at four N.Shore restaurants in two months time. Of the four, two were 3-star eateries and two (Nuvolaris incl) were 4-star. Nuvolaris is the best so far. It is a warm, comfortable environment, the wait staff is oh so professional, the sommelier was personable and "right on" with recommendations and the fresh fish was superb.

good food....not great service
The food was very good. I didn't like our waitress....thought she was not very informative and told me that I couldn't make a substitution with my order...I thought that was rather rude and not very accommodating for a restaurant of this caliber...

Fantastic service, steak was great, prices were reasonable. Would recommend to my friends.

We had a very good meal and the service was very good. The rum cake was dry, I was expecting a moist rum laden piece of cake.

An Old Favorite
My wife and I frequented Nuvolari's years ago when we lived in Louisiana. This was our first visit back in years. We were pleasantly surprised to see that things have not changed much: both the food and service were terrific.
We recommend it highly.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Hadn't been here in 20 years. Pleasantly surprised by food and service. A fish special and veal piccata were both well flavored and surprisingly good. Will definitely be back sooner. Wine list is very basic with few good by the glass choices. Bar is attractive and busy.

Pleasant Dining Experience
The gruper was cooked to perfection!The fried oysters delectable. And the white chocolate cheese cake brought the evening to a culinary completeness. Wallace couldn't do enough to please us and catered to us graciously. Would return in a heartbeat.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience on Friday, 7/26/13.
I can see that it is a neighborhood hotspot with excellent appetizers and a
nice selection of entrees. We'll be back for sure!

Great date night!
The food was excellent and the bread pudding was amazing! We are actually making plans to go back this weekend.

One Of The Best On The Northshore
Nuvolari's is the best. In an restaurant experience you want a great environment, attentive service and great food. The many times we have come here, it has always been 5 stars in all categories.

Very Nice Evening Out
We had a very nice evening out with friends at Nuvolari's. The service was great, the food very good. The chef even prepared an eggplant dish for me which was not on the menu. I thank the waiter who worked that out with the chef. We had a very pleasant evening and recommend it to all.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We eat at Nuvalari often. It is always great. I wish they would change their fish options. Please bring back the redfish!!! Very yummy.

Favorite Dining Spots
Nuvolari's is one of our favorite dining spots. We love it for special family celebrations and for private Christmas parties: actually it is a favorite anytime for a delightful repast..

Amazing food, service a bit slow.
The food was outstanding. It took longer than expected as it appeared the resturaunt was under-staffed, but when attention was given it was great. Apetizer was crawfish and escargot. We had the filet and then chocolate torte for desert. Was all quite yummy.

A real treat
What a treat to have such a nice, consistent, restaurant in our neighborhood. The atmosphere is always pleasant. The staff are very helpful and friendly without being too intrusive. We go a few times a year for special occasions and they always go out of their way to make the evening special for us. The regular menu has just enough to please a variety of tastes without being overly ambitious. their specials are always excellent, and highlight the special skills of the kitchen staff.

We went looking for a great night out with great food and found it.

Nuvolari's consistently delivers good food - especially fish, a warm atmosphere, and exceptional service. It is a neighborhood gem.

Was expecting more
Restaurant was recommended by a friend and we were hoping for a great dining experience. No vintages were listed on the wine menu, the seafood was fresh and properly cooked it just wasn't anything special. Our waitress was a not very knowledgeable and she seemed to be overwhelmed taking care of just 3 tables.

Great Anniversary destination
I let the staff know ahead of time it was our anniversary. They gave us a great table and everyone knew ahead of time about our event and wished us Happy Anniversary. Service was outstanding. Andy was extremely attentive without being intrusive. Good sense of humor and very respectful. Food was awesome as usual. Perhaps portions might have been a tad larger but on my diet they were probably right where they needed to be! Highly recommend this romantic well established and beautiful restaurant.

Great ambience, food & service
The fresh, hot bread is delicious as is everything on the menu. An excellent and reasonably priced wine selection rounds out an excellent dinner. I would highly recommend!

Delightful dining experience
I visited Nuvolari's in charming Mandeville on the Northside of Lake Ponchartrain, accross the Causeway from New Orleans while on vacation. I was so pleased the owner of my guesthouse had recommended them. I would have to say, without any exageration, that it was one of the three best meals I have ever had. Very memorable. I started with Fried oysters and then had the shrimp/scallop pasta with creamy brandy sauce. Absolutely mouthwatering. Excellent service and ambience. Cannot recommend highly enough. Go and try it for yourself. ..
