Everything that came out of the kitchen was very impressive - veal francese, baked salmon, veal cutlet with arugula and tomatoes, caesar salads all excellent. Service was good, and Marco was as congenial a host as you could ever want to have. We were delighted to have tried it and would be happy to come back often.
Celebrated our daughter's Birthday.
Marco made us feel special and we had a lovely evening. The Branzino baked in salt and served tableside was fantastic!
Meeting friends for dinner. We had a great evening. The food was delicious & service was great too.
Always enjoy dining at Novello. Pleasant ambiance, courteous host and wait staff, delicious food!
As always food was delicious. Recommend the piano room. Love the little cookies at the end of the meal.
Been here quite a few times and food and service never disappoint.
Delightful restaurant and excellent food. The pear stuffed pasta was likely the best pasta dish I have ever tried, including restaurants in Italy. Fantastic! Service was fantastic, and only downfall is that i was hoping for a nice outdoor patio, and was too small, and overlooking the parking lot with road maintenance happening. Other than that, everything was outstanding.
Top level of service. The owner really cares and makes you feel so welcome. The meal was spectacular.
The owner/manager was enamored with my wife and it bordered upon inappropriate.
The food was fairly good but the specials were completely overpriced.
The Pasta Primavera was $33 ( this is usually one of the most inexpensive dishes) and the Papardelle with seafood was $52. None of these prices were provided ahead of time.
The vino was quite good. We had a Chianti and a Montepulciano.
It is very tight corners. The table next to us , through no fault of their own, kept bumping into us.
The music was a nice touch and the atmosphere felt authentic.
Great dinner with great friends & we were able to have a conversation during dinner. Food was excellent & the noise level was low.
Excellent service. Very tasty cuisine. Very good wine selection.
Marco the owner and the staff were excellent. Roland was great! The food was really outstanding. Sat out on the patio. We also noticed some very unusual Italian wine. It was a great night and we are sure to return.
This is good Italian food at haute cuisine pricing. The inside dining room provides a very nice atmosphere versus the outdoor and other option. The octopus appetizer, one of their specialties, was terribly overcooked or reheated so many times that the result it was an overcooked and chewy dish. It’s a shame because it was tasty and may have otherwise been enjoyable. Main courses were okay as was the service. The espresso was not good.
Everything was great but prices on the high side. Three places to sit. One inside with piano player nice but noisy, another outside great on a nice night, and another inside that's quieter. Let them know your preference.
Everything was great
Our first visit but surely not the last. Food was well prepared and delicious. Service was outstanding.

Short rib for $44 was one star
Always great. Wonderful host. Sit as long as you like. Piano bar seating available
Everything was excellent . The octopus salad was great, the veal chop was exceptional.
The food and service at Novello is outstanding every one is treated as though they were a guest in Marco’s Home.
One of the best restaurants in Delray / Boca! Such a treat.
My bronzino was good but loaded with bones! Very very dark in the restaurant!
Consistently good food and great service. The menu offers a great variety of options with vegetarian options as well as meats and fish. We will return soon.
Raphael, our waiter was terrific - attentive, prompt, courteous.
Wine selection was excellent.
Food was very good.
The food was fantastic...the closest to food like you get in Italy I have had in the US.
We had out of town guests who really loved the food at this restaurant! The fact that the noise level is very low was a plus. The chicken piccata was excellent. So was the veal. Pasta Bolognese was fabulous! When you sit down the restaurant serves bruschetta and some yummy garlic focaccia. The creme brûlée and complimentary short bread cookies were excellent. The service was attentive.
Great all around. Branzino encrusted in salt was amazing.
This is a very good Italian restaurant. The food is authentic, tasty, served in generous portions and offered in a large variety. The restaurant has a live piano/bar room (a bit small and a bit too noisy for our taste), outdoor seating, nice but not very large either. So you may have to wait if you don't make a reservation. The third room is larger and quieter and very comfortable, so there is a place for every taste.....The service was very friendly although orders take longer to be served because the menu is extensive and dishes are prepared with individual care and not just rushed out to "turn tables" quickly. Prices are in line with the good value of the meals and the wine list and desserts are very very good. I surely return to Novello and will recommend to friends, family and business associates.
Unlike our past experience dinner was good not great. My Veal Franca was too lemony and a little chewy. My wife selected Veal Marsala which as always was very good .
we are never let down,they go all out to please you.Wait staff is excellent
We had a lovely evening, sat outside on a beautiful night. All food recommendations were delicious
We will definitely go back.
Very attentive staff. Good explanation of dishes.Food was very good and nice presentation High noise level. Will return
The food has been consistently excellent every time we come here. The veal chop is exceptional and the vegetarian dishes are a favorite of my wife. The service is top-notch and the owner is very welcoming. The desserts are scrumptious. We will return again and again.
Wonderful experience. Was our first time here. Food and service were out of this world.
My husband and I tried it on "Date Night". We asked to be seated in the Piano Bar and were not disappointed. The pianist played songs we knew well and it was a lovely background to a lovely meal. The food was delicious and the service great; attentive, but not intrusive. Can't wait to return.
The food was good. We had the breaded veal with arugula and the branzino special.
The service: not so good. When we have to ask the helper serving bread and water to get us a waiter because we had been waiting for a while to order or flag down the waiter to get more water, this is unacceptable.
When the waiter does not return to check in with the table after the meal is served, this is not good.
Novello: this is supposed to be a fine dining experience. Part of that experience is the service and attention given to the customer.
FYI: it is mostly an older crowd that eats here, in case you were wondering (not that it makes any difference, just a comment).
Just a very welcoming atmosphere with excellent food and service. Marco, the owner, a most gracious host. We like the piano/bar area as it has something of a supper club feel. Our second Valentines Day at Novello starting a tradition we hope to continue.
I was there for Valentine’s Day dinner. It was slightly crowded, and our waiter was having a hard time keeping up with everything, but the owner more than made up for it! The atomosphere is so romantic and the live piano player near the bar was a great touch! I would definitely recommend!!
a new and wonderful find for us that made for a lovely valentine's day evening! hope they keep doin' what they're doin' cause they're doin' it right!
