Italian
From the moment you walk into Novello, there is a feeling of comfort and warmth. Owner Marco Turano takes immense pride in the integrity of their food and the quality and professionalism in their staff.
For old world charm, dine indoors. For a tropical "Addison Mizner" feel, opt for a table on the patio. Order a bottle from their well stocked wine cellar as you peruse the menu. An Italian Super Tuscan, Moscato, Montepulciano D’Abruzzo or Chianti by the bottle or the glass sets the mood.
At Novello, we suggest that you dine like an Italian...share!
Take out and delivery available! Live piano music Wednesday to Sunday.

    My wife and I had come here a few weeks ago for happy hour and had a great experience, enjoyed mussels and a few glasses of wine. We decided we needed to come back for dinner and we were not disappointed! They have an incredible wine selection and the menu is fantastic, my wife did veal and I had the lamb chops. Service was great, definitely recommend a visit for dinner.

    If you order traditional Italian dishes the food is excellent. The eggplant appetizer is outstanding. I did not enjoy the seabass dish which was very expensive. I expected more.

    We had a five o’clock reservation. It took them twenty minutes to seat us at that time! It said on open table, that, if you want a turkey dinner its $68 a person or No set price for open menu! Would never go back there! Three meals out of six people were made wrong. And the place was half full. The food was just fair and very unappetizing. Will never go back there again. It cost $500 plus tip fir six people. Total rip off.

    We ate with you on Thanksgiving. I have been a restaurant GM for 25 years so I will overlook so many small issues. Our experience was absolutely horrible. I recommended Novello's for our family so my Mom didn't have to cook!! When we arrived it took 13 minutes to receive our drink order. Our apps took almost 20 minutes and when we were done our plates sat there for 10+ minutes while the staff was LITERALLY just walking around the dining room, continuously walking past our table doing nothing because it was slow and finally I had to ask for our table to be bussed. The Server grabbed my Father and Husbands plates and insted of walking to the other side of table, she reached across to grab my Mothers plate and my hit my Mothers full glass of water and it tipped entirely into my Mothers lap!! She didn't put the plates down!! She said "Oh, I'm really sorry" and then she went to reach for my plate! My husband said "bring us some napkins please"! She took the plates away and returned with 1 napkin! Our food, which again took an inordinate amount of time arrived cold and when we told the Server she asked if we wanted our plates microwaved? The food we ate(Turkey, Mash etc) was good, but all of us could only eat a little because everything was cold. When we were served our Pumpkin pie, 2 of us were served pieces that had the crust sitting on the plate???? Before arriving, I recommended Novello's to my cousin for a pre wedding event in January for 35 guests. Not anymore. How did the Server not tell her Manager that she spilled a entire glass of water on a guest? How did she not tell her Manager that all 4 plates of food was cold. We NEVER received a table check from a Manager the entire time we were there. For a special occasion like Thanksgiving, we should have had at least part of our bill comp'd. This was disgraceful!!

Highly recommend this restaurant for an just an evening out or a special occasion. Cannot speak more highly of the staff and the owner Marco who always makes you feel welcome. The daily specials are incredible and the food is consistently perfect. The ambience is always enjoyable. It will become a favorite immediately when choosing to dine out!

    Pasta appetizer came out 15 minutes after others got their appetizers. They charged a $15 sharing charge for a Bronzino special that was $60. Prices went up significantly since last time we were there. More than the inflation rate.

    No one greeted us so after waiting for 10 minutes, we went inside and were told we were late !!!! The waiter was taking our order without asking about drinks and when I said “excuse me “ he just ignored me, but my brother in law stopped ordering and pointed him in my direction. Prices are astronomical for good but ordinary food.

    Not bad but not good food was bland and the pasta with shrimp had no taste upcharge for gnocchi was 14 bucks so essentially I paid 40.00 bucks for bolognese ouch!!

    Novello Restaurant & BarResponded on November 1, 2022Thank you for visiting Novello, Chris. To be candid, the pricing for just about everything has continued to climb this year, and we fear this will undoubtedly impact business. We won't use inferior products, so restaurants like ours probably feel it more than others. I am sorry. I do try very hard to provide authentic Italian cuisine at reasonable prices. I must say, our homemade gnocchi does take a while to prepare. I hope you will stop in again. Thank you for your patronage,

    food was mediocca with an expensive price. not even tasting good. will not return. There are too many good restaurants in Boca Raton to bother with Novello.

    Novello Restaurant & BarResponded on September 30, 2022Hello Allen, I am disappointed you did not enjoy our food. Most patrons rave about Novello because of our exquisitely prepared authentic Italian dishes. However, people's taste buds do react differently to various dishes. You may be used to eating particular meals a certain way, and you may need to try some things you have never had before to wake those taste buds up. I appreciate your patronage and wish we could have done better the first time.
