Cafe Nuovo has been very consistent in the food quality & creative dishes. The chef has done an excellent job on the preparation of the food dishes without adding a lot of salt the dishes have many flavors without an overpowering spice or added ingredient, allowing you to enjoy the taste of the dish that you ordered. Prices are a little higher then many restaurants but worth it. We have been very pleased over the years & will continue to dine at Cafe Nuovo as we hope the head chef remains at the helm.
Crispy tuna is a must! Food and cocktails were fantastic! Excellent service! TY!!!
My girlfriend and I make reservations at least three tines a year and travel down from Boston, Ma . Everything has always been perfect from valet parking, coat service to a very well organized dinner menu and choicea of non alcohol and alcohol. 5 Stars
The best restaurant in Rhode Island!
Wonderful, as Always!!! Have been going there for almost 12 years!
We are a family of 5. Kids are school age. Parking was easy. Seated on time. Food and service were excellent. Felt safe. More than adequate space in a beautiful rotunda. A very pleasant experience.
Fabulous meal, as always. The flavors and presentation are just awesome. The service is exceptional as well. You can't go wrong here!
The food was presented beautifully and overall delicious. Complimentary valet is a nice touch and the location is relatively easy to find.
The food was excellent as always. But the service was horrendous. We were rushed from start to finish. Our waiter was rude and pushy. I understand that with covid there are time restrictions, but when other table that were seated prior to us arriving are allowed to enjoy their meals without being pushed out the door it’s is aggravating. The server brought our check over prior to the desert even being brought out. I have experienced better service at Ruby Tuesday’s. I expected better from cafe nuovo having been there on several occasions. But I will not be going back anytime soon
DiMitri and staff are amazing and so glad to be back! Everything was outstanding! What a lovely Valentines Dinner we had!
My significant other and I went for dinner on Valentine’s Day. Neither of us had dined at Cafe Nuovo before but we will certainly be back! The food was delicious down to the last bite. The service was on point and the ambiance was elegant yet pleasant. Highly recommend!
The food and service here are top notch. Everything we had was amazing.
food was good, waitress was exceptional, we were seated in the lobby of the building because of Covid. Music at first was very loud but they turned it down when asked.
Had dinner on the Saturday night of Valentine’s Day Weekend. Everything about our experience was exceptional. Our server was spectacular. The perfect balance of warmth and friendliness with professionalism. We would request her in the future. Food was over the top awesome. The food is always great here, yet this was really remarkable. Tuna over crispy rice appetizer was so flavorful and the apples were a perfect complement. Our entrees were Dover Sole, Duck and Salmon. Each of us thought our entrees were phenomenal and among the best preparations we have had. Glad you reopened, Cafe Nuovo!!
First let me start with Our server was amazing but of course I can’t remember her name. The overall ambiance and service were great and they even offered a complimentary Prosecco. As for the food, though it was mostly tasty, I don’t think it’s worth the money ($35 for farfalle and a couple shrimp?) what really ruined it for me was that my typical favorite dessert anywhere -chocolate bread pudding- was horrible. Bland, lackluster and not worth the calories. Not sure we will be quick to be back
Excellent as usual. Our go to restaurant for a nice night out.
Very nice all around - staff, service, food and ambience! Will definitely be returning.
Another phenomenal dinner at Nuevo!! What can I say? If you never experienced the great food and er
Place was everything we wanted and more. Food was incredible.
The restaurant was great! Would highly recommend this place!
I celebrated my 65th birthday at Cafe Nuevo and I choose it because of the amazing food and beautiful atmosphere! We have never not enjoyed this restaurant!
Will be back loved it
Food everything was great, it’s been a while since we dined out and glad we chose cafe nuovo!
Just a wonderful meal! Glad they are back open during this difficult time! Food, service, and staff were just awesome! Highly recommend....
Delicious food, fantastic service! Great ambiance
Great to see you guys back open. Didn’t miss a beat. Food was very good, nice wine list to match. Nice job!!
Fabulous food and service. Warm and welcoming. Will definitely go back!!
This was my first visit, but certainly not my last. Cafe Nuova has overnight become one of my favorite restaurants in Providence. The service was impeccable and was only surpassed by the flavor of the food. The price was very reasonable for the portions they serve. It was the best I've tasted.
We absolutely enjoyed every moment of our dining experience. Food wonderful! Wait staff incredible! We even decided to come back for Valentine’s Day!
Oh always a fine time at Cafe Nuovo! We were on the patio with heaters on a very chilly night and just had fun. Drinks and appys: lettuce wraps, raw bar and pizza. Yum. Look forward to a happy outcome from the Covid shutdown and send all the staff best wishes.
CN is like an oasis in the COVID storm continuing to serve excellent seasonal specials in its socially-distanced seating and amazing patio. Thank you!
After having an amazing experience here for my birthday in June my boyfriend and i just had to go back for our 5 year anniversary. We got the tomato soup again, which is pretty much the best soup we’ve ever had. Or waiter Brian was attentive and incredibly friendly. The special was a ginger soy steak dish which i loved and my boyfriend got the boneless short rib which was so tender he didn’t even need a knife. We split the pot of mousse which is an incredibly beautiful and flavorful dessert.
Birthday for the wife
Inventive menu, great chef, outstanding service. Wonderful river view.
Always a great experience
The atmosphere, the food and their service were all excellent. It was a great dining experience. We will absolutely go back.
Sat outside under heater. Very safe, great cocktails, professional service. Food was delicious, would have liked the portions to be a little bigger but overall, cant wait to go back!!
Seated near the bar (no patrons due to COVID) noise level louder than expected. Service was professional however slow in between servings. The filet risotto seasoning was not balancing heavy pepper at times that didn’t work well with the truffle and the risotto was under cook. Hard to tell the Chef’s intentions. The Veal Chop was overly complicated and to sweet a dish that over powered the main ingredient, the Veal. The polenta was spectacular but onions were not charred. We will try Cafe Nuovo in the future. Overall the restaurant was a good experience for the first time.
We're so glad we dined outside here. They did a great job with social distancing the tables by using 3-sided tents with heaters. We were very comfortable and the food and service were just amazing! thanks so much for getting it so right during this chaotic time!! We really appreciated it!
Fantastic and amazing as always. My waiter was really nice, I don’t remember his name. But I hope I have him every time I come here. If I could spend money to eat here every week I would. And a special shout out to the people cheffing it up in the kitchen.
Always a 5 star experience all around!!
