Best restaurant ever! It was a special night for my husband and I. I didn’t know but he had stopped in at the restaurant a day earlier and coordinated with the manger to have roses and champagne at the table. The manager took care of everything and did an amazing job! Such a special night that I will always remember! And the food and service...amazing!! Thank you!
Normally we have had excellent meals when we’ve dined in past. This time extremely small portion size for main meal. Really disappointed for the price I paid.
Great food and cocktails. First time there but definetely wont be the last.
Awesome - great waiter!
Great time. The veal chop was excellent! Service was also top notch.
This was our first time dining at Café Nuovo. Great experience! We were seated promptly upon arrival. The waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. His recommendations were spot on - the food was delicious and ample. The restaurant is a gem even in the foody city of Providence. We highly recommend it!
Excellent food and service as usual. Always outstanding.
The food and deserts are absolutely amazing. I had the tiramisu desert special and it was the most amazing treat o have ever had.
Excellent service. Good food.
Very delicious. Great caeser salad with fresh anchovies....don't see that every day. I had the lamb shank and it was spectacular.
Easter dinner. Food was excellent and the service was very good. One of my favorite restaurants!
Good but noisy. Expensive. Was for Easter celebration. Table was good near the window.
The food was absolutely delicious! The service did take a while but it was worth it
After all the recommendations we finally decided to take a break from our top spots for the night and we were definitely not let down by some of the best dinner selections we have had... it is too bad we had the service of an everyday pizza place. Our waiter Vin must have had a day worse than my Mondays since the only words we got from him were the nonchalant specials at the start and not even a thank you at the end. Menus were dropped on the table each time, wine list which was huge, dinner and dessert menus without a word, and walks away. Bartenders weren’t much better more interested in basketball on tv than the job we pay them to do. Nicest person was the valet! If the chef decides to work somewhere else we would like to know, but otherwise we will pass on a second visit.
Very enjoyable evening with delicious food. The service was good and the restaurant has a great location.
Waited VERY VERY long for our dinners. Ridiculously long. Not an apology or check in from our waiter. I ordered a different potato when the entree arrived, he never brought it.
Seemed annoyed when we asked for anything.
We had a great date night meal here. It is a bit more upscale, so may be fitting for a splurge, but definitely worth the extra expense, as the food and cocktails were exceptional. The service was great as well despite prime time during a Saturday evening. In addition to the dining experience, they have valet and coat check to make it feel a bit more special.
We were seated immediately next to the bar, though there is a partition, and it was hard to tell there was activity on the other side, which made for a more private dining experience, so noise was not an issue.
Overall, a great place, worth the drive or splurge.
Corey did a great job of keeping us informed of choices (what a memory!), keeping drinks filled and making suggestions. Service was great as was the food! Loved the ambience - nice!
The restaurant had an event that seemed to take all of its service personnel and those at the restaurant proper were forgotten. The food took some time to arrive - we had to inquire before it did arrive. Took so long that we had no time for dessert. I am familiar with this restaurant and the food when it arrived was very good but we were totally neglected. Check in advance to see if an event is taking place before making reservations.
Everything was delicious! Keith, our waiter, was very attentive to my dates tree nut allergy. Very sweet guy who laughed at our (corny) jokes! We asked for his recommendations on what to order for dessert and it did not disappointed. My date had the shrimp and scallops with spaghetti squash. I had the special, herbs de (provence i think?) polenta and pork... Oh man! All so delicious. Thanks for the great night!
Cafe Nuovo is a favorite of ours and as always, it was wonderful. Service ( by Robert), ambiance, and food were all excellent - so once again, thank you for making our evening special!
While dinner was good we had a very bad experience regarding our wine order. From the menu ordered an expensive 2013 Cabernet. After bottle was opened we saw it was a 2015. Discussed with waiter who talked to management. Answer was same wine same price. Not cool at all and we won't be back. Wrote note to restaurant before this post. They never responded.
Dinner for 7 of us for my son's 24th birthday. The wait staff was attentive, and not intrusive. The food was amazing!
Waiter was great. Food delish...you must try !
Our welcome was warm and service excellent
Loved appts. Flavors, colors, texture great
Disappointed on side dishes. Perhaps the potatoes used for mash potatoes were frozen previously.
Funny texture Bread basket very nice and we appreciated the attentiveness and water glasses full
And appreciate the surprise dessert for the birthday
I didn't care for this restaurant! Tables were too close, food was average (for the price) & service was ok. Will most likely not return there
Genuinely one of the best 2-3 restaurants in all Rhode Island! The food and service is second to none. Do yourself (and your guest) a favor and just Go!!
Me and my husband went for our anniversary. Waiter service was great, all the food was delicious and their special dessert was one of the best desserts we have ever tried. I would definitely go again for a special occasion.
All was great
Our waiter was somewhat absent until we asked for service
By far this is the best restaurant in RI and MA hands down. Don't waste your time going to Federal Hill, if you want a first class experience Café Nuovo is the only place to go. The food is wonderful every time! I have never had a bad meal or anything but an amazing dish and my husband and I are frequent customers. The restaurant itself is beautiful and the outside dining area can't be beat for Water Fire. The staff is exceptional! So much so that we decided to have our wedding here last year. They truly make the difference between a great experience to an outstanding one!
Top notch service, food and dining experience!! Will be back!!!
My friend and I had a delightful experience at the bar waiting for our reservation. The Bartender was lovely and made us feel welcome. Our server was helpful and fun and professional. Now about the food: DEELISH!! I rarely order steak out anymore because I am always disappointed. Our steaks were cooked perfectly according to our preferences. We had the lettuce wraps as an app and it is worth the trip just for those. The wine selection was great too. I love this place. If you want excellent food and a great dining experience I highly recommend.
I've been going to Cafe Nuovo since it first open and I have never been disappointed by a meal there. On my most recent visit, I had the Dover Sole. It was perfectly prepared and presented. I've eaten Dover sole all over the world and Cafe Nuovo's Dover Sole was excellent. The service at Cafe Nuovo is always pleasant and the staff is most accommodating. I had a really great Manhatten before dinner that was so good I had another one with dinner and skipped the wine. My guest and I were too full to have one of the famous Cafe Nuovo desserts, which are always as beautiful as they are tasty.
Nolan, our waitress made a perfect meal even better.
Excellent as usual.
Great Service, excellent food!
Food was excellent!
Food was good but had to stand for 45 minutes and wait for our table even though we had a reservation.
Excellent as always Dimitri was in the kitchen cooking some great specials
