Our waitress was fantastic! The chicken wings and focaccia bread were delicious! All entrees were excellent! The atmosphere was dynamic with the dining patrons cheering for Tom Brady, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, on the Big screen.
Food and service was excellent. The rosemary chicken wings are a must if you like wings! I had seafood while my husband kept it simple with a burger. Server was personable, efficient, and gave great recommendations. I look forward to visiting again soon. Also,
If you have a sweet tooth, try the Tiramisu.
Everyone enjoyed their food as it was flavorful and great portion size. The drinks and ambience were lovely and everyone enjoyed themselves thoroughly! Can never go wrong with drinks or dinner at Novara!

I had made an error on my online reservation and the management was so accommodating doing their best to get us a table on a very busy night. I love this spot it is bright and open the cocktails are amazing and the food is so delicious, the servers and bartenders are friendly and thorough. I recommend the Bolognese it is better than any I've had in the North End and equal to or better than Alba restaurant (another local restaurant). Highly recommend Novara for lunch with girlfriends or date night. Check out their website for entertainment. PS the to go cocktails are also great -
Food is always awesome. Service was great. Packed!!

Love the atmosphere, busy night with happy people. Started out with cauliflower- the sauce was delicious and the Mediterranean platter which was good but small amount of each item and a lot of bread. Main course 2 guests got the pork which they loved and nice portion, chicken parm was also large and good mine was the scallops with lobster risotto… small scallops but the risotto was delicious. Desserts no complaints! Would def dine here again
We do come often I ordered the special the halibut it was overcooked and dry and overprice at $36 dollars. I was very disappointing you should’ve asked for my money back
We had a reservation for 8:15 and didn’t sit until almost 9. No one apologized or asked if we wanted a drink while we were waiting. I love the food and the atmosphere but was disappointed with the wait time even though we had a reservation.
Definitely didn’t complete this reservation. Arrived early for my 8:15 reservation and told by hostess it will be a few minutes.. sure no problem. At 8:45 we were still standing waiting to be seated, along with people who had been waiting longer than us. No word from hostesses or management to anyone. Ended up leaving without ever getting seated. Glad we dodged that bullet.
Great food and active dining room. Never disappointed.
No problems and very nice ambience. The only negative was a filet mignon was ordered medium rare and received a bad piece of beef cooked medium. For the price it should be a decent steak.
The scallop risotto plate was delicious. Waitress was nice and attentive.
Their fig pizza is the best around! The braised short rib dish was phenomenal.
Love Novara! My friends and I come almost once a week. We eat outside all year The restaurant has done an amazing job with the outdoor decor and the heating lanterns. Jason (the manager) is friendly, polite and very accommodating! If you haven’t been there yet you need to go. The bar area inside is awesome! Thanks Novara!
Great as always!
it is my go to place I highly recommend it to all my friends
Everything about the evening was great! I’ll be back again!
Sweet potato arancini was delicious! Drinks were good. Service was excellent.
I brought my sister here for a nice dinner . Novaro never disappoints me . It was her first time there and she loved it . She had chicken parm which was amazing and I had the yummy steak and lobster . It was delicious.
We dine here about once a month. Consistently excellent!
Food, service, atmosphere, and wait staff were amazing! Will definitely be returning!
I had the scallops for dinner. These were topped with some type of aoili which was unpleasant; scallops were not seared well; lobster risotto was extremely salty. My sister had a pork scallopine which was delicious.
I had never had a bad meal at Novara until last night (:
The food was great, and the server was nice and attentive.
Food was alright, server was super nice and attentive. Very busy and tables were a little close. I wouldn't rush back
Just delicious, can’t wait to go back
The scallop risotto dish was amazing. The oysters didnt seem very fresh The shrimp cocktail was great my friend loved her seafood scampi and our drinks were on point (strawberry marg with sugar rim and tuscan lemon drink)
The dining experience was incredible. The food was unbelievable and the best part was our waitress Sam. She was extremely personable and overall super kind and made our experience the best it could be. We recommend this restaurant for any occasion!
Great safe New Years celebration! Best staff ever. Love Patrick, Kenny, Eric and Jen ❤️
The food here is always outstanding; the menu is just large enough to have something for everyone, and you can go here as a special occasion or on a budget, and be satisfied either way. It's one of our favorite date night spots.
I have eaten at Novara several times and it has always been excellent. However, the seafood scampi last evening was very disappointing. The scallops and shrimp were underdone and is was far too bland and watery.
One of my favorite places to dine.
The waitstaff is always amazing on beat and with great honest recommendations on their favorites and what’s is popular to those that are regulars.
The food is ALWAYS fresh hot and displayed immaculately. The open kitchen is always a sight to watch as fresh plates are pushed out and the aromas that follow are mouth watering.
The massive tv has something interesting playing be-it a movie a show I love the atmosphere clean open & welcoming by the staff.
Always perfect! Service, food, and atmosphere!
Nice location and setup. Parking lots nearby.
Huge TVs at the bar.
Outdoor seating available (in winter too).
Food was delicious, so overall we were very pleased! Appetizer came out immediately, but the entrees were significantly delayed. That was the only hiccup in an otherwise lovely dining experience. We plan on going back.
Excellent dinner at Novara! We had reservations and were seated immediately. The restaurant was busy and the extensive bar was full. Our server was friendly, attentive, and helpful. We ordered the pan seared scallops, eggplant parmesan, and the chicken Marsala—all were well-prepared and delicious!
I would highly recommend Novara as a restaurant for regular dining and special occasions. There’s a variety of dishes, and the menu items are moderately priced, with a few dishes on the high end. It’s a real treat to dine at Novara. The ambiance, decor, food and service were all wonderful, and I can’t wait until we go back again!
I like this place. Good food nice atmosphere great service.
Food came out surprisingly quickly, and was delicious. Would recommend the bolognese.
Best meal my family and I have had in months. Sam was amazing!! She took such great care of us and gave awesome recommendations. I’ll be asking for her again next time we dine in. Food and drinks were too notch. I’ll be returning soon!
One of my favorite restaurants, food is always exceptional as well as the service.
Used to be a hidden gem, but now everyone knows about it so reservations are key.
Pretty cool restaurant. Great bar scene. Great beer selection and the cocktail list is solid. Would recommend.
