It’s great to have A9 as an option for brunch on the South Shore. Everyone in our party was happy with the food whether a more traditional breakfast item or more in the lunch end. The only complaint is that the noise level with the musicians was pretty high. We would have all preferred to have music without vocals, as it was difficult to converse at times.

Alma Nove is the best. My husband and I have been dining at the restaurant for many years! Always,
courteous wait staff, great food and wonderful ambiance. We have celebrated several occasions with our
families, from Birthdays, to engagements, and wedding anniversaries. I never tire of the restaurant.

After our recent dinner at Alma Nove, I’m elevating this restaurant to my list of favorites. Each member of our party raved about the exception quality and flavor of each plate: appetizers, salads & entrees.

At first our server was sub-par and unfriendly, but he seemed to undergo a metamorphosis after a few visits to the kitchen. Then he was terrific! Maybe he had a bad day before our fun party arrived.

I’ve always enjoyed lunches & dinners at Alma Nove, but this meal could only be described superb!

We were there for lunch for a small family celebration. We experienced a harried staff and delays in service along with an extra appetizer and incorrect entree. Had this been my first visit, I would not have rated the experience as highly as I did. That being said, once the glitches were resolved, our food was good and with a table by a window, we got to view it a gorgeous day - no other issues.

We had a really nice birthday dinner for my husband at Alma Nove the other night. The service and food were great and the restaurant itself is really lovely. And they have a kids menu which my daughter loved!

Dined at Alma Nove to celebrate a birthday. Menu selection was great, food portions were very generous, and really delicious. Alma Nove has become one of my favorite restaurants on the South Shore.

The good:

The restaurant has nice views and is in a good location.

Great service, our waitress was terrific. She asked if everything was ok, and we said it was, but the food was really bad. There was no reason in pointing it out because it wasn’t like one or two things was wrong. It was all bad.

The wine list is very well priced with some nicer bottles at a very good value.

The bad:

The food was not good. Meatballs were dry, bland and tiny. Mussels were in a very thick and bland sauce. Pasta was very dry and bland. Shrimp was dry and tangy and lobster ravioli was dry too.

Overall, the whole reason to go to the restaurant was the meal, yet everything was underwhelming.

Have dined here quite a few times with and without reservations. Have always been accommodated.
Food is always fresh and delicious and the staff is friendly and don't appear rushed.
Our latest visit (a sister's night out) the hostess gave us a table with a beautiful view and suggested which chairs had the best view. She was friendly and even made an effort to catch up with us as we were leaving to see if we enjoyed our meal.
The atmosphere is upscale without being too full of itself and the clientele is very mixed.
Great place for a special night out or a date night or in our case sister's night.

We had visited once a few years ago & absolutely loved everything about Alma Nove. We decided that, since it was our birthdays & 30th wedding anniversary all in one month, that we’d take another trip up, have a nice dinner & stay overnight in the area.
We were surprised & underwhelmed by the food this time around.
The lobster ravioli was so overpowered by the limoncello oil drizzled on it, that was all that I tasted. My husband’s tagliatelle with meat sauce was more like eating pasta with chili.
The best part of dinner was dessert, thankfully.
Server was pleasant, but in no hurry to get our drinks out. We were there early, so it was definitely not busy yet.

Food and service were excellent. The seating is a bit tight and we were getting bumped by the other diners and waitstaff throughout our meal.

I had the shrimp and scallops with guanciale and radish risotto, it was excellent.

What a great place to have a harbor view and a delicious meal. My main concern was a meal that can wow me. How can you make fish taste better. I live on Cape Cod and love fish but was bored of the same thing. Alma Nove made my tastebuds dance for sure. I had hake, panned seared. This dish had so much flavor and the presentation was impressive.

As usual, service was great and so was the food, wine and dessert. The only surprise was our bread was stale. Other than that, a wonderful meal and experience.

47th Anniversary.
My Wife & I always go to Alma Nove for our anniversary.
The staff is Great from the moment you get there until you leave.
Mr Walberg has everything down to perfection.
Our waiter Tony was just right. He knows when to be by and when
to let you relax and enjoy.
The lobster & shrimp pasta special was excellent.
I also highly recommend the Salumi platter.
Thanks for a perfect anniversary,
Rich & Roxey Greim
