Nuvolaris is a Mandeville icon. Lovely restaurant with good food, great atmosphere, service and bar. In a competitive business Novolaris holds it's own.
I enjpyed a delicious 16 ounce pork chop. Very tender. Roasted broccoli and potatoes were excellent. The waitress was great.
Enjoyed an anniversary dinner. First, we were seated in a large room with just one other table of 8. They were loud and offensive so we asked to be moved to the main dining area. Our request was granted and the meal was much more enjoyable. The food was good but we overheard another waiter tell the couple next to us that soup or salad came with entrees. We were not given that option.
Food and service is consistently good!!! Great neighborhood restaurant. Highly recommend!!!
It was my husband and I’s first time and it wouldn’t be our last. Our waitress was very helpful with picking out a bottle of wine and even our meals. The bartender even came over after we started asking questions about the wine in more detail. The food was great and we couldn’t have enjoyed ourselves any more than we did.
We love Open Table‼️ seated as soon as we arrived and service was spot on👍🏼 Wonderful evening
Great experience overall. Monica was great, answered all our questions about the menu and gave great suggestions. Hot bread with 2 butter options - regular and garlic butter. Calamari was well seasoned and very tender. Blue cheese wedge didn't disappoint. Entrees were hearty size and full of flavor. Great place for date night or casual dinner. Will be back.
Excellent! Consistently good!!
Very good food
Wallace was very helpful in handling our gift card situation,,,
Favorite Mandeville restaurant for adult dining. Atmosphere is relaxed and food is excellent.
Always great food!
Very, very pleasant experience. The staff was cordial, attentive and highly professional.
We loved our evening in this beautiful restaurant. Super cozy and the food and service was excellent!!
Excellent cocktails. Fun bar. Subpar seating for our special girls night out (super quiet room in the back). We were the last customers in the restaurant at 9:30pm on a Saturday night; we tried to relax while the wait staff tried to close up.
Food was good. Service was excellent. Our area was chilly and rather loud, but we had a nice evening.
The food was amazing. The atmosphere was perfect for our date night. The restaurant is beautiful. It was my first visit and I’ll definitely be back.
What locals consider a great spot. Good food, very good service. Cozy atmosphere. Our waitress was kind and very knowledgeable.
We went for my Mom's birthday. We had a lovely table in a quiet room, which is just what we wanted. Three of us order the veal scallopini. It was very good, but heavier than is typical for that dish. I didn't have a chance to check out the rest of the restaurant, but it looked like there were areas that were quite lively as well as areas, such as ours, that were quiet and where we could easily hear each other. I would go back
Great food and atmosphere! I highly recommend this for a date, special evening, or just dinner with friends.
Have been when food good, not great. Last visit everyone’s food great! Good pour on drinks. Very very cold. I am usually hot in restaurants, not this time ! Wooo it was very cold. Wanted to move to raised area, but hostess said she’d turn up heat. Got 2 sweatshirts and my coat out of car, my poor husband was still cold after several hours after we got home. Good thing for them we don’t have winter for more than a few weeks a year. Will keep this restaurant in our “go to spots “.
One of our favorite places to eat and drink.
Nice atmosphere, food was heavy
Our overall dining experience was very good. The service was prompt and pleasant. The food was good, nothing extraordinary but very good.
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and evening at this very special Old Mandeville restaurant
Food is Always fabulous, great service and vibrant atmosphere!
This was for a get-together with friends for Christmas. The restaurant was very busy. There was a private party that was very loud. But, that was fine with us. The food was good. Not outstanding. But good. Service was a little slow because of how busy the restaurant was. Our server was very attentive though. Our wine and dessert was very good.
Everything was great like always.
Good: staff, food, ambiance, bar. What more could you want!
The service was great, food was exceptional & everything was handled by friendly courteous staff.
Meatballs appetizer was cold. Slow bar service. Food was very good, loved the ambiance. Restaurant was a little cold. We’ll be back for sure.
Haven't been in a long time and we were very pleased with the meal, service and price. We will be back a lot sooner!!!
I am a chef and restaurateur in New Orleans. My wife surprised me with a staycation on the north shore recently. We wound up at Nuvolari's largely because places closer to our hotel were closed on Sunday. I am glad that they were, because Nuvolari's was exactly the restorative meal that I needed. I spend my life obsessing over the details of fine dining minutiae, but at the end of the day what really matters is that my food is cooked and seasoned well, served by a kind and welcoming staff, in an environment that is comfortable. This is where Nuvolari's shined -- the food was delicious and our server was friendly and knowledgeable. I recommend it highly, and look forward to returning.
We arrived and were promptly seated. Atmosphere was nice and not "stuffy".
We ordered a bottle of champagne... the waitress brought out a Pinot Grigio and we caught the mistake just as she was opening the bottle.
Appetizers were OK (Carne & Formaggio and a Caprese Salad). The staff repeatedly topped off our niece's Sprite with ice water. Food arrived a full 80 minutes after ordering—all of the tables around us (which all arrived after us) were served before us. Our waitress was rude when questioned about the delay and service became standoffish afterward. The waitress didn't speak another word to our table until she brought the bill.
Oysters Carbonara was barely sauced and just warm. Fried oysters were tasty.
The Ravioli del Giorno was clearly handmade but both the filling and the pasta itself were undercooked. The sauce was OK.
I've had better meals and better service at diners and buffets. I will recommend against Nuvolari's in the future.
Great place to bring a friend for good meal and a quiet evening
WAiter smelled strongly of cigarettes. He obviously doesn’t wash the stink off his hands as he serves food. It is gross that he smelled so strongly.
Horrible ingredients, their cheese/meat tray was the nastiest thing I have ever been served at a restaurant.
Good food, great service. Will definitely return!
We have a group of friends that get together monthly for dinner. Decided to try Nuvolari’s this month. What a wonderful experience! We’ll definitely be returning! Great atmosphere. Great food!
This is my daughter’s favorite restaurant. Took her and my wife out to dinner at the last minute. Looked at Open Table, couple of clicks, had reservations. Easy enough. Waited a little longer than usual on waitress, but we were not in a hurry. After that, service was excellent, food outstanding as always.
