great location, and wonderful to be able to sit outside by the river and watch all the activity of the city.
Our business dinner for 8 was outstanding. The server was helpful, knowledgeable and very pleasant. The food was creative and delicious.
We sat outside by the river on a cool Monday night in October. We were the only people out there under the heater and it was wonderful. Liz, our server was so nice-personable and attentive. We shared a selection of delicious appetizers. Everything was yummy and beautifully presented. They even put a candle in my daughter's dessert for her birthday and wrote happy Birthday in chocolate on the plate! Had such a lovely night!
Fantastic service and attention to detail. We celebrated a dear friend’s 60th birthday and they could not have been more accommodating
Great service. Alex our waiter so accommodating and informative.
Was a perfect evening to celebrate a birthday and Waterfire!
Food was good, service a little slow. Had to flag down waiter and ask to place our order. A little pricey but overall positive experience
Love this restaurant however last night was not a typical visit. It took forever to get our appetizers and food - not typical of this restaurant
Cafe Nuovo is a great date night restaurant. Dinner was delicious and the staff was wonderful.
It was awesome
Beautiful location and view of the canal. Service was fantastic. Food was great too!
The restaurant was short of staff, both service and kitchen. We were told the owner was in the kitchen.
Well, the food and drink were absolutely perfect. The servers were running, but the whole dining experience was excellent. We got one of the best tables in the restaurant, so it was quiet and we had views of the river and the city.
Kudos to the whole organization for a great job. We really enjoyed our special dinner and will certainly plan a return visit soon.
Delicious food, cooked to perfection. Delightful drinks. Great service from Devin who was very attentive, funny, and helpful with recommendations. Lovely environment.
The restaurant had Dover Sole, which was why we went. Done to perfection and deboned, cut and served table side.
Wonderful location, service, food and overall experience. Highly recommend.
Loved our delicious dinner seated outside by the River!
It was amazing as always. Good food, company and service.
The food was eclectic but good. The sea bass was outstanding. The star of the evening however was the dessert. It looked great and tasted even better. It was also delightful to see a gondola glide by in the canal.
Location is beautiful and service is great. I had ordered the king trumpet mushrooms. Everything on the plate was good but the peas were undercooked. Probably frozen and not cooked through.
We had a lovely meal, great food but price is at a premium. Nice quiet corner table for my wife's Birthday. Special occasion place but not for regular appearances for us.
Beautiful restaurant. Great food and service.
Best restaurant in Providence!
The menu has something for everyone,
Dimitri and the staff go above and beyond.
We booked a last minute reservation on open table. Parking was easy and they offer valet. The restaurant was bright, clean and well staffed. We were immediately greeted and sat at an indoor table overlooking the patio and water.
Our waiter was attentive but not intrusive. He was excited to be there and could not have been more helpful. When he informed us of the dinner specials for that evening, he spoke in detail about the contents and preparation. The restaurant allows the staff to taste certain meals and he was enthusiastic in what they were offering.
My husband and I both chose appetizers and entrées that they had as specials. To my embarrassment, I did not know some of the ingredients that would be coming in my mail. I had a lot of apprehension but I was greeted with the most outstanding flavors and textures I’ve ever experienced. The combination of ingredients made for one amazing meal. Overall my least favorite part of the dinner was my entrée thankfully my husband‘s entrée and all of the appetizers gave us plenty of food to share.
Overall Café Nuovo gets a five star rating! We will definitely be back!
Great food, service, and ambience!! Would recommend !
My wife’s 30th bday.
Wonderful! Sean was personable, friendly and professional. Our server, Alex, was also wonderful.
The food was remarkable.
On vacation, looking for a nice meal
We chose to eat outside and had a delicious dinner overlooking the river. The mousse dessert was crazy good.
The services and food was amazing . The services was friendly and had good good suggestions
Everything was wonderful! Had a great server…very professional! First time in and will definitely come back.
Amazing. That's all I can say. Food, service, etc. was all incredible!
The food, service and atmosphere are always superb at this restaurant everytime!
Wonderful place to celebrate my 70th Birthday with friends !!!
Birthday dinner celebration, we had great dining experience at Cafe Nuovo!
Excellent. Enjoyed it very much.
Our waiter Cole was outstanding. His attentiveness and professionalism made our night.
Food was excellent, service was attentive and ambiance was delightful.
My husband and I very much enjoyed Café Nuovo. Lovely atmosphere, Delightful staff and the menu made it difficult to choose just one entrée. Highly recommend!
Imaginative pairings led to great tastes and overall enjoyment.
This place is really nice. The food and service are excellent, and it's fairly priced. I'd definitely go again. We had a table for 6 on the patio, and the ambiance was very nice.
Based on past experiences here I have to say it’s gone downhill unfortunately. Bread fair, no olives, steak tip special not good.
Bathroom a mess, no hand towels.
Pizza fair. Calamari good!
