Another great experience! The service by Amelia was impeccable. Our dinner and cocktails were amazing. We sat at our favorite table for 2 next to an open window. The ambiance is perfect for a great date night out. We highly recommend Novara. And we will definitely return, over and over again! Thank you so much!
Great meal and service with our two young kids! Age 5 and 3
A wonderful experience all around!
Atmosphere is very cool and modern.
We ate on the patio as they were able to accommodate our request. Meals were delicious! So many great choices.
We will be back! Thanks for a great night.
Great ambiance and the food is amazing. Our server was awesome!
Novara is Always a fav of ours. Recommend to others
Love it there.
Always a wonderful experience, excellent food and drinks!
Our server was awesome. She was very attentive without being overbearing. The food was excellent as well.
Overall a great night
Great food and Jenn our waitress was awesome! Loved the open sliders to the cute patio and they still have some dividers up, so I felt socially distant from the table beside us :)
Lunch on the patio was just wonderful! The food was good, the service was excellent and the ambience lovely.
I had the best experience tonight. I eat at many restaurants and Novara never fails. Recently I had a negative experience at a restaurant and their preparation of my "Filet" and I held onto my anger for longer than I should have. This was my first steak since then and my filet at Novara was exquisite. Kristi, our server was beyond awesome. I am very critical of my food experience, but more so the service and Kristi navigated her tables like Captain Kirk navigated the Starship Enterprise. She was swift, attentive and more than efficient. My family and I have been here many times and we thoroughly enjoy ourselves everytime. It was date night for my wife and I and Novara was the foreplay for a great rest of the night. Thank you Novara and an extra special thank you to Kristi and the chef👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
We had a great dinner there... Delicious food, awesome drinks and good service. Excellent desserts too.
I eat here often. Food was good, but it has been better. Waiter was slow to check on us, but I think she didn’t want to disturb conversation.
I will still recommend and come back
it was a very nice evening, good food, good wine and good friends, great combination.
This was our first time dining at this restaurant. From the ambiance to the service to the food & the cocktails, this restaurant is outstanding! Everything was exceptional. The restaurant was beautiful & meticulous. The portions were generous, so we were excited to take some food home & savior our experience a little longer. Our server was fun, professional & entertaining. One of our new favorite places! Can’t wait to go back.
Birthdays for my wife snd daughter. Food is reliably delicious, appeals to the eye and pallet, food served hot with waitstaff who are friendly, attentive, snd unintrusive. all in all, an excellent value.
Awesome food and awesome staff!! Simply the best!!
The ambiance and service were outstanding. We were seated on the patio. It was a perfect summer night. The lighting, umbrella tables, comfortable seats made this location wonderful. We really enjoyed the sweet potato arancini, it was a hit with our whole group. All our meals were good. We all had one thing about each of our meals that we didn't care for. My friend thought the pork dish was a little bland despite looking amazing. She asked for some lemon wedges/juice to zing it up. My husband got the short ribs and was disappointed with the corn polenta. I had the prime sirloin and was a little disappointed with the sauce. The lemon cake was delicious for dessert. The beer drinkers were impressed with the beer list. Novara is a good suburban restaurant. A few improvements and it would be great. Also, the parking is a little tough, so plan to leave enough time.
Food, service and ambiance was all excellent! Will definitely return
Pizza was delicious. It did remember me Italy taste.
Rest of dish were correct
I’ll definitely come back to enjoy their food
Great food, atmosphere was really great.
Next time would like to try a patio.
The Tuna Poke appetizer and Pappardelle Bolognese were fantastic!
Service was amazing and food outstanding as always!
I hate to give the restaurant a glowing review because then even more people will go and I'll never get a short dated reservation! But I can't help it!!! Everything was top notch! You'll regret it of you don't try Navaro. :-)
Food preparation was good. Liked the outdoor patio seating. Service was good. Cocktails weren’t too strong on alcohol but rather watery. Overall nice place. I will visit again.
The patio seating is really nice - there are outdoor heaters in case it is chilly. The menu selection was great - there is something for everyone. Overall, the food was pretty good. The oysters and focaccia were awesome. Loved the pizza. The cod was also great. Only negative was the vegan pasta - probs wouldn’t order it again. Otherwise will be returning soon would recommend
Novara is always great. It's one of my family's favorites.
The food was good, but service was terrible. The waitress would ask one person if they wanted a refill, then run off before anyone else could request one. It was one member of our party's birthday so they brought him out a dessert but then did not offer anyone else a dessert until about 20 minutes later.
The food was great and the service was prompt and courteous. I dined there twice in one week!
Novara is consistent in both positives and negatives.
What we love:
--Really lovely outside patio
--Consistently creative, fresh, and delicious food
--Quirky, interesting servers.
What we find annoying nearly every time:
--Disorganized, inconsistently attentive reception staff
--Long wait time from seating to taking orders
--No bread for the table and the focaccia order takes as long as the apps and meals--meaning drinking alcohol on an empty stomach or not drinking alcohol
--Slow service over all/overloaded servers when there are larger parties.
We really like Novara, and love sharing it with friends and family, particularly the outside patio. And we always warn them that the reception and service lag times are the weak links, which are worth overlooking because of the pluses, but are still disappointing.
Fun atmosphere with delicious food.
Novara never disappoints. Great apps, entrees and libations, always served up with a smile. Atmosphere is exceptional inside and out.
Glad to have Novara back after COVID. The service was quite good in spite of them being a bit short staffed (like everyone). Food was excellent and the ambiance was perfect for a nice get together with friends.
The meals and drinks were nice. The service was less than expected. The server was a bit abrupt at times. They had entertainment but it was far too loud to enable dinner conversation. Lastly, we made reservations for patio seating and were told by the hostess that they don't honor requests all the time. What??
I love the food selection, ambiance, and the location. However, my waitress Maggie made this experience a nightmare. Things got so bad that I went to the bar to see if I could order a drink as she appeared interested and was inattentive. The manager helped the situation. I would definately return in hopes that the service is better.
Fantastic. Our server, Deirdre, was amazing. Novara is the not so hidden gem of Milton.
Always a great time!
we had two seniors citizens, two adults one is recovering from cancer and two children 2 and 5 and we were put at a table in the sun, we spoke to the women manger and she said she could not split table for 8 and those tables stayed open the whole time we were there
We come to that restaurant many time and have had a few functions we will think twice about coming again
Everything was wonderful at Novara. The atmosphere is great, excellent food and wonderful service. We always enjoy taking out family members and out-of-state visitors.
