The service was amazing! From our gracious host to our server Leo’s exceptional, professional and perfectly friendly attention. The cocktails were nice, not great. The food was wholly unimpressive. The selection was limited and overpriced for the quality.
We were celebrating our anniversary of meeting 56 years ago and if it were not for that, we would not have a wedding anniversary of 48 years to also celebrate. Cafe Nuovo was the perfect venue to celebrate with tremendous food and service. We split the Bibb salad which was extraordinary and totally enjoyed the olives and the bread basket. My husband loves their swordfish with extra garlic and butter sauce, and I rely on my zucchini and eggplant appetizer which is a delicious meal for me!! Great night as always there!
Great location, food and service ! I would go again.
Had dinner at Cafe Nuovo Saturday March 9th. Everything from the table to the drinks to the food was wonderful. The waiter asked us if we would like to see a dessert menu. It took almost 30 minutes before we saw him again. Obviously we didn't have dessert or an after dinner drink. We do really like Cafe Nuovo so this one experience won't keep us from going back in the future!
Great service and great food!
I will definitely go back!
Always good! Especially the lamb shank/orzo...like my mothers recipe!
Exceptional service, food, and a great experience. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an upscale, modern restaurant.
Food as always was fabulous. Unfortunately service was not up to par. Transferred to table with drinks from bar. It took forever for menus to arrive. Had to ask for bread just to hold us over. Then we rushed through our meals once food arrived because by then we were so hungry. I love this place but was disappointed on this occasion.
One of my favorite places t fine. Greeted st the door. Fantastic service. Wonderful food. Parking.
So fabulous again. Great food and great service. Never disappoints.
The menu is very limited. It was clear that the food was not made to order. Within 5 minutes of placing our order the food arrived. My husband’s meal was cold and lackluster. My dish was the size of a small appetizer, certainly not dinner sized even for small composed dishes. Overpriced and overrated. Best part of the meal was our server. We were very disappointed and will not return.
Excellent food, the preparation of the duck dinner that I chose was well appointed with the different choices of vegetables & sauces that combined to make a delicious dish. Our waiter Gary narrowed down my choices & I was very pleased with his suggestion. The atmosphere & table that we enjoyed our anniversary dinner was perfect. Cafe Nuovo has been a consistent restaurant of creativity & quality making for a wonderful dining experience.
Made for a wonderful night out. Dinner at Cafe Nuovo then a show at PPAC. Beautiful location on the river. Restaurant was very quiet on a Wednesday in February. We sat near the window with a nice view. The food and service were tremendous. Server was very attentive without overdoing it. Swordfish was cooked perfectly and the cioppino included some of the largest shrimp I've seen in a long time. We enjoyed ourselves thouroughly and would not hesitate to go back for a special occasion.
This restaurant has delicious food, a great ambiance and excellent service. Run don't walk to enjoy this place.
A snowy day in Providence having a holiday lunch. Leo, our server, was a real server with nice presence and manners. Oysters and clams on half shell prepared properly( which is rare lately). Nice 1/2 bottle of cab sauv as wasn't overwhelmed with by the glass choices. Luncheon of seared scallops on risotto and salmon with brussels sprouts: both perfectly cooked and the best part was that the food was hot! Nice view, setting, linens, easy parking, quiet due to weather. Lovely!
The service was excellent. We both have food allergies that were accommodated. The strip steak and the swordfish off the grill were both fantastic, and the broccoli was the best that we have ever had. We will be back!
Great Restaurant, the food is always fantastic. Quiet and great service. It is an upscale restaurant and priced accordingly.
Great night out
We had great food and excellent service
It was our Anniversary and the dessert plate was decorated with Happy Anniversary wishes . The food was outstanding as usual .
The atmosphere was fine. The noise level good. The food was terrific though a bit on the pricey side. The drinks were small. They are seriously in need of slight larger martini glasses.
Celebrating a birthday, have been here before, the escargot keeps us coming back.
Great service great food
Been a million times, I’ll go a million more.
Hands down , The best in RI. Service and food are always outstanding!
Great food. Over priced off course..but the food is worth it.l
Typically we have stellar experiences here. This time was not as great.
15th Valentine’s Day in a row and each time just as good if not better!! Best resistant in the state hands down!
From the moment my husband and I walked in, we felt special. The service was outstanding, food was soooooooooo delicious and plentiful. The level of service and the view of the city were just amazing. And, the food was served promptly on a very busy Valentine's night.
Great food and service, consistently great! What's more to be said?
This was my first time dining at Cafe Nuovo. I was quite impressed. The service was exceptional; the food was fabulous. We were there to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Being that we are both retired, we opted for an afternoon dining experience to eliminate the usual hustle and bustle of “holiday dining”. We achieved our goal of fine dining and eliminating crowds. The only negative was they were setting up for the evening crowd and it did get quite noisy. The room filled with employees moving tables and chairs preparing for the Valentine evening festivities.
Fine, sophisticated service; creative menu; tempting specials; delicious food.
This is the best restaurant in Providence. We love it-the location, the food, the atmosphere
Loved it! It was our mother's 80th birthday and couldn't have asked for a better place to celebrate. Our server was wonderful!!!!! You even allowed us to bring our mother's favorite cake with no hesitation. I cannot wait to come back. Really, thank you for making it special for our mother and making it so stress free for us. See you again! Josephine Doherty
Great location and pleasant place to eat. The service was great and staggered the courses so we could socialize and have a wonderful unrushed time.
Superb restaurant with excellent food, wine and service
Getting together with friends is always fun but to enjoy a meal at Cafe Nuovo brings it to another level.
Always outstanding food options and service.
The brussel sprout salad with Salmon. .. memorable.
Food was very good. Although the bartender was great it took a long time for the food. She apologized and said it was on her and then charged us!
Café Nuovo does not disappoint. Its consistently welcoming, the food and service are great and always a great experience.
