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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!
