Loved their Neapolitan style pizza. Reminds me of the pizza we had in Italy.

Last minute pizza decision
Last minute pizza decision which turned out much better than expected. Good simple flavours that are important for all good Italian food. The music was a bit loud, and the ambiance seemed to lack a bit of soul, but we will be back for sure!

Authentic Italian Pizza
The pizza was very good and they serve Peroni's Nastro Azzuro on tap!!!

Great pizza! Three different pizza's, and they were all excellent. Perfect spot before or after a movie (which is next door).

Great before-movie meal
Great place to grab a meal before a movie. Food is served quickly, but you don't feel rushed.

Great venue for my friends
Great venue for my friends small (7 people) birthday party. The staff were extremely helpful and attentive but we still felt comfortable to take our time. The food is mostly pizza and pasta but everything we had was excellent and my pizza was one of the best I've had in a long time. Great place!

We go to Novo regularly for
We go to Novo regularly for their pizza which is authentic Neapolitan style pizza. It is amongst the best in Vancouver. We always enjoy our meal though we usually have the pizza with a salad, last time a couple of people at our table ordered pasta dishes. The pasta is more ordinary and there is better pasta to be had in Vancouver, but if it's pizza you want this is the place!! Service is always good for a casual place and the wine selection is also good.

Great Pizza and Pasta.
The place has great food at a very reasonable price, conveniently located next to Fifth Avenue Theatre. Service was prompt and friendly. We had mushrooms fettucine and the pizza special of the evening, with fresh arugula, burrata cheese and a top grade prosciutto, both excellent. It is the place to go for a great Neapolitan pizza.

Novo: A local favourite
We've been regulars at Novo since it opened and have enjoyed our experiences. Recently on a visit to Novo we were delighted with what seems like even more of an improvement to their food. They've upped their game. We both had pasta Bolognese and shared an order of meatballs. Well the pasta was cooked al dente and the meatballs were tasty. We even noticed that they've jazzed up the plating of their salad which is always plentiful for sharing.
Our visit was such a good experience that we returned again this week for more. This week I added in a pizza and it too was excellent. The service was warm and welcoming. Thanks for providing a great neighbourhood spot.

great for pizza and salad
I've been here several times with my husband and have enjoyed several items. Their beet salad is light and flavorful. Yummy pasta and tasty brick oven pizzas.

This was a great little pizeria
This was a great little pizeria for anyone that is looking for good food, and a good place for wine and conversations. The pizza wasn't mind blowing, but i have been to Naples so everywhere after that is just average. Even NYC pizza can't touch Naples.
5/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is not your average pizza. These are only one size - and one is enough to share if you have a starter and a salad. Wine is expensive but that is not their fault. The beer list is short but imaginative. We were delighted to find Brooklyn Brown Ale on it. Always try the Fresh Sheet.

Great food, served fast! Waiter
Great food, served fast! Waiter not pushy when we had finished dinner and were just chatting.

very good food & service
We went for a later-than-usual dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the food -- home made thin-crust pizza (roasted red peppers, mushrooms, carmelized onions, goat cheese), home-made pasta (gnocchi with cashew & basil pesto -- yummy!), and salad all to share. Service was excellent -- waiter was very attentive (might have been the owner?)

Best pizza in the neighbourhood
Been here a couple of times now and been very happy with the pizza. Nicely cooked with fresh, interesting ingredients. Attentive wait staff, and a nice feel to the place. A short but interesting wine list. Will be back for sure.

I have been to Novo a few times, and recently with a group of 6. We had a nice table in the innotecca inspired area in the back- quiet and intimate. The manager/Owner was serving us and his suggestions and recommendations for which dishes to share between all of us were perfect. The food was fabulous- lovely light and non-greasy pizza with that crust!! And, the pasta was very good with and the gnoci were light and flavorful. I will definately be back soon.

Great Aunthentic Pizza
I have eaten at Novo several times and each time I am just as happy. The servers are polite and prompt. The atmosphere is lovely and the food is great. The pizza is superb. A perfect hand made crust baked in the old fashioned Italian style in a large pizzas oven with just the right amount of toppings to create a perfect balance of flavor and texture.

Peroni on the Patio
Actually we never sat on the patio because the window washers were very busy outside and it woulda been kinda damp, but we were treated extremely well, the food was fabulous and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. It was a great experience and we would certainly go back!
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went out for dinner with my family and friends. The service was good, despite it being very busy.
I can't say enough of the pasta (bolognese sauce and the mushrooms).
Pizza was quite good, but the crust needed to dry out and crisp up in the oven for a few more minutes.
Overall, it was good pizza and great pasta.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
They happily accommodated my request to add tomato sauce to their burrata pizza. Montepulciano wine was great. Parking along the local street was easy and free. I love coming to this place for an authentic Italian pizza with thin crust baked in a brick oven. Will return again.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
A perfect place for before or after a movie!
Service was quick friendly and food was creative and tasty.
Pizza should have another name to describe what we had!
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Simple and Great
It is just what is advertised, pizza and wine but with delicious salads and pastas as well.
8/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
When I go out to a restaurant, I generally look for something on the menu that I don't or rarely cook at home. For an appetizer we had the burrata cheese antipasti, definitely recommended. Novo has a 900 degree oven that I can't duplicate at home and the pizza was delicious. We had the special portobello mushroom pizza and the margherita. Both were really full of flavor, baked to perfection served hot to the table just out of the oven. We will go back to Novo.

Great spot in the neighborhood
Wanted to catch a movie and decided to come here for dinner. Had the calamari....... Awesome. Cesar salad.... Perfectly "caesared" and we shared the pancetta peas pasta... Al Dante !!! Will definitely be back!

Great food and service!
Great food and service! The resfaurant could invest in better knives. It's hard to have the pizza cut with the current ones.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
always love the food - this
always love the food - this visit the small antipasto platter, an order of meatballs, a wood-stove pizza and 2 caesars were plenty for 3 of us at our after-movie dinner - delicious!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
easy excellent Italian food
Novo serves unpretentious, tasty Italian fare, with a good selection of fresh antipasti, salads, pastas, pizzas. The servers are attentive without being overbearing, the atmosphere allows conversation. It's a good room and a great place to meet a friend for a light supper. I've been many times and NEVER been disappointed with either the service or anything from the menu.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a find!
We've been twice now. The salads, pizzas & pastas are all great. We'll be back!

Great Neapolitan Pizza in Kits!
You don't have to go downtown for a yummy pizza experience! I didn't want to stop eating! Yum.

Terrific Tasty Italian Fare
We love their antipasto platter-very tasty and reasonable . The pizzas are thin crust and great flavors !
Fab also for the movie theatre next door for dining after a movie !

Novo Pizzeria - has pasta too!
Novo has fabulous pizza - the best I've had in Vancouver and beyond - but also some great pastas and salads!

Best pizza in Vancouver
I came here for my birthday especially because its my favourite pizza in town. I love the Burrata pizza. I usually ask for it with tomato sauce base and I added truffled mushrooms. It was so excellent. My Mom had the Gnocci with Bolognese sauce and she said it was great. Also enjoyed the meatball appy. Will come back often and tell my friends to visit. Thanks. Barb

Overall, food was great.. price point was a little on the higher side for the neighbourhood.

Perfect spot for a sharing
Perfect spot for a sharing a quick reasonably priced bite before hitting the movie theatre. Great way to avoid downtown on a Saturday night.

Good for groups
I booked Novo's for a party of 12, so they had placed our tables in this little nook just behind the bar. I liked it because it was private enough that it was just our group, but we weren't totally isolated from the rest of the restaurant. The service was satisfactory, but it did take over an hour to get our orders and our food. My party didn't seem to mind as we were all catching up anyway. When our food came, everyone was satisfied with what they ordered. We all ordered a kind of pizza. I ordered a margherita. It was great and tasted authentic enough to me. I had also told them that it was my fiance's birthday so they did come out with a slice of tiramisu cake on the house for him which I appreciated very much.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Casual and good
Grab a bite before or after a film next door at the Fifth Avenue Cinema or come with friends and family for a generous salad and tasty pizza and accommodating wait staff. Novo can be noisy when full but our server turned the music down a couple of notches which really helped. In warm weather there's seating on the patio.

A night to remember
We were treated like we were special from start to finish. Thank you

Great Food, good location
We've been to Novo twice as a group of 6 for a pre-movie dinner. the food has been excellent both times. All six of us ordered pizza on both visits, and I don't think our water glasses were ever empty as the waitress was very attentive. The pizzas are thin crust, and a good size for a one-person dinner. We did have a young college student in our group who could've easily eaten two pizzas.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Dreamy and delicious dining!
I absolutely loved the food. In fact, I'd go as far as to say that it was the best restaurant food I have eaten in a long, long time. The quality of food, service, and atmosphere completely exceeds expectations when you consider the affordable price-point. I have paid a lot more for much less satisfactory meals. Good, simple, well-balanced dishes really allow the ingredients to shine through, and I'll be dreaming of my meal for a while to come... Looking forward to next time.
