The food is always good and portions are generous! It’s always a great meal at Nuvolari’s.
Server (Allison) was amazing! Always a great experience here every time we come.
Wallace runs a great restaurant! The food and experience is wonderful.
Great food, and very sweet, welcoming staff! We’ll definitely be back again for another date night!
Great food, drinks, atmosphere and service. We will definitely return.
Overall the experience went well with the exception of seating arrangement . Air conditioner was directly on us and needed a jacket.
Great atmosphere. Good cocktails. Recommend the pomegranate martini!
Food was above average but not fantastic.
I had veal picatta. The veal was tender and the sauce was great. Capers and lemon were very well balanced. But it was served on an Alfredo sauce and fettuccine. Most of the dish was fettuccine Alfredo. Not great.
My wife had the lasagna. It was average.
The caprese salad was excellent.
Great service. The food was very good except for my wife’s filet. It was pretty tough for medium rare. Enjoyed our time together & will return without the steak for a meal.
Excellent food and service
Excellent food and service. Exactly what we were looking for within the menu
Only thing I think the wait staffs timing was off and didn’t give us time to think. But very courteous and professional.
Nuvolari’s was great. Took the wife here for our wedding anniversary. It was the first time either of us have been here. Definitely recommend this place for a nice quiet evening meal!
Had a very enjoyable meal. Service was great, not too fast not too slow. Food was delish!
Nice restaurant with gracious service, well prepared food and generous servings.
Good food. Slow service.
GALEN provided us excellent service - he was prompt, attentive, helpful, and upbeat during the entire visit. Our meals were very good - linguini and meatballs and aglio e oleo. We always enjoy dining here and will return. Do overs went well at home too!
During this time of pandemic response and COVID guidelines, Nuvolari's offered some some very positive and one negative response. Alternate tables were not set and not used, thus allowing for more than required social distancing of dining parties. This was great and made us very comfortable. Our server work a mask as required by state guidelines. This was greatly appreciated. However, we noticed two of four other servers and two bar personnel roaming the facility and serving customers without wearing masks. This included serving food at customer tables. Some increased compliance in this arena would have improved our experience and made us much more anxious to return very soon. We will return, but hope compliance improves in the interim.
Great date night place. Atmosphere and great food.
Everything was fantastic, from the service to the meal.
Great as always
Group of 6 on a recent Saturday night. We had a mixture of entrees- veal piccata, veal panee, refish & oysters carbonara. All were good. Good drinks from Dave at the bar and good service by Alison. A good solid-know what you are going to get-place in old Mandeville. Being open on Sunday night is a big plus.
The food, wait staff and ambiance was amazing as always!!
Quality and friendly with excellent food and service
Food was delicious and service was excellent. I would recommend this place to all my family and friends.
Had a great dinner. Food was incredible. Will definitely return again.
Everything was amazing from the service to the food! We had reservations, so we got our table right away. Mr. Bergeron was our waiter for the night and he was very knowledgeable about the menu and his services were great. Calli was our hostess, and she was also great. All the staff were very friendly. We will definitely be returning.
Absolutely great food as always! Waitress was knowledgeable and extremely friendly. She new the menu well. Made suggestions : service quick and always attentive but not a pest.
One of our favorite places to go
Excellent meal, service and atmosphere. I first dined here 30+ years ago and have never had a bad meal or experience. Highly recommend.
Loved this restaurant. It was our first time. Food is fantastic and huge portions.
I brought some work friends from out of town here. This was my 3rd time here and their first. Everything was excellent from the drinks to the cre
We had a wonderful experience. Our server was amazing and made our experience the best!! Food was excellent and will for sure be back!!!!
Very good. One dish wasn’t good. The oyster pasta entree but everything else was delicious. Great waiter. Saia
We had 8 people at our table for dinner. Everything was perfect. Food came out all together. Steaks were done perfectly. Everyone enjoyed their meals.
Entrees were delicious, calamari was okay was served a lot of batter at the bottom and tasted like it was fried in fish fry batter. We were also stared down by this elderly couple cause we were a gay couple. Other than that entrees were great
Absolutely a must! Birthday date night with Husband and they made it perfect in everyway. You can definitely tell the cook had pride in his food because the way the flavors paired with each other is art. We got chargrilled salmon with orzo basil, raspberry tomato sauce. AND I must say the CHOCOLATE MARTINI IS AMAZING!
MIGHT I JUST ADD:
I think that restaurants should keep at 50% capacity So that the staff could pay more attention to guest. Have food brought out quicker , more efficient with orders and it’s so much more private. Loved it!
Fantastic meal. The Scallops, crab and shrimp linguine were unbelievable.
I’ll be back for sure.
The only thing negative I could possibly mention is that the scallops were a little over cooked. But, other than that everything was perfectamundo!
Our experience was fine; however Nuvolari’s did not have our reservation booked through Open Table, which was confirmed by Open Table one day prior!!!!!’
Always a great experience!
Food is excellent. Great presentation. If you want a restaurant where you can have a conversation and hear your guests, this is it!
Food was wonderful
Our waiter was still in training and needed more polish.
Still highly recommend
