Novello Restaurant & Bar
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!

Very friendly staff and great, authentic food.
Always get a warm welcome and delicious food!
A personal favorite in Boca. The food never disappoints and the owners (Marco and Maya) go out of their way to make you feel at home. Highly recommend.
This is one of the best Italian restaurants in Boca and Delray! The staff were extremely warm and welcoming. Marco, the owner, treated us like family, even though we were newcomers. We sat on the patio and it was really comfy. I started with a delicious arugula salad which was perfect. And then ..... the BEST fish I have ever had anywhere - branzino baked in a salt crust. Divine! I think it was a special so I’m hoping they include it on their regular menu.
Although the food was good/adequate, the prices are high when compared to peer restaurants in the area.
Really enjoyed the food and the service. I had the fettuccine bolognese -- I thought the pasta could have been a little more al dente but the sauce was awesome. The capreze had an excellent flavor. We asked for a side of olives and were disappointed in that they looked like they came from a can -- not what you get when you visit Italy. My wife had the angel hair veneziana that was excellent -- huge shrimp and scallops with a great sauce to it. The competition in the area for Italian restaurants is strong, but this place holds its own. We'll definitely go back.
We really enjoy sitting in the piano room and enjoy the pianist. Excellent Dover sole, which is prepared table side by our wonderful server,Caesar salad and fabulous bread which is addicting.The rose wine is from France and has a wonderful light refreshing taste followed with cappuccino and amazing lemoncello.We will visit again.
Both owners were very friendly and attentive. Good variety on menu, food was outstanding and service was excellent!!!
Excellent service by Roland and his team and the food was great! The owner Marco was in the dining room making sure all guests were well taken care of.
much too expensive ! make sure you have a high credit line, or lots of cash on you !
Excellent food, service. One of our favorite Italian restaurants!
Novello is a first class Restaurant. You know it is going to be a great dining experience when the owner greets you personally before you enter the Rrstaurant. We have dined at Novello before and were never disappointed. This time was excellent too the service was superb. The food was excellent. It was prepared exactly as ordered and was of the highest quality. This restaurant is a gem.
Delicious Italian Seafood, great ambiance and beautiful piano music! First class service and perfect for date night!
We had shrimp Francaise cooked perfectly not overdone, delicious; gnocchi with vodka sauce, light and fluffy; special of veal chop with mushroom sauce, amazing; veal chop parmesan, wonderful. The service was great and all the food delicious. We were lucky enough to sit outside and it was very relaxing tablecloths and all.
Food was good and plenty, but not really gourmet dining. The big disappointment was the cappuccino - it tasted like hot water with some milk.
We have eaten there at least 7 times during the year. The food is very consistant, you receive a welcoming reception and the service is impeccable. Highly reccomended.
Best Italian in Boca. Great specials. Veal chop to die for.
High quality Italian restaurant with a charming owner who is also the host.
Once again, Marco and his team provided the BEST food and BEST service of any restaurant I have been too. They made my birthday extra special. Kudo!!!
The owners husband and wife are especially gracious and they make sure every thing is perfect. The food is always outstanding and the service impeccable. Friday and Saturday there is a piano player that is amazing and plays the most beautiful music. This is a special restaurant not to be overlooked. And it has valet parking too.
Everything was wonderful, the service, food, even the owner. I didn’t know anything on there wine list,
Excellent food, excellent service and an overall enjoyable experience.
The food was so delicious and the service was superb. It was a wonderful relaxed experience
Food and service were outstanding
Once again, a ridiculously great meal. Still the best in Boca hands down. Marco and team treat you like family and the food is the best Italian I have ever had. Awesome!
Our server, Salem, was fabulous and the food was fantastic. It’s hard to find good Italian food along with impeccable service in Boca and now we finally have it.
Fantastic. Great food, people, service, ambiance the whole experience. The owners are fantastic and want you to love your nite out. The service is warm but professional. I had a veal chop that was over the top. My wife had the shrimp livernaise and loved it too. This is my new favorite restaurant and we plan on going regularly. Thank you Novello for a special evening out.
Fantastic meal! This is the second time we’ve been there. Owner, Marco very congenial- excellent wine menu- service great!
Incredible service and food. The owner treats you like family and Roland our server was just awesome. We came for our anniversary and we couldn’t of had a better experience. Don’t look anywhere else, just go!!!
Beautiful pasta, great service. We’ve been looking for a good Italian restaurant in the area and this is it
Excellent choice for a wonderful Father’s Day celebration. Can’t wait to go again. Food and service were outstanding
Restaurant is amazing. Service and ambiance perfect. Food fresh and delicious. And Marko tops it off making us feel like we have the place to ourselves! Highly recommend❤️
The owner of the restaurant and the servers are warm and cannot do enough to please the guests. The food is made t order and they kindly make changes as requested. Friday and Saturday night there is an outstanding piano player who plays quietly woh jazz and show tunes and classics. We highly recommend Novello. It is a special experience.
Everything we ordered was delicious. The owner and wait staff are all very attentive and anxious to please. And courtesy after dinner drink and cookies were a nice touch.
Love Novello best Italian in Boca and Delray for sure!
Warm comfortable environment
Very good. Great service. Very good food.
Food ,service, and ambiance was exceptional .Prices were very compadable with other restaurants. I have been to the best of restaurants in Boca this is definitely one that I will highly recommend to anyone. Definitely a neighborhood gem .
I wanted a special restaurant for our 31 st wedding anniversary and we found it here. We were welcomed by Marco as if we’d been here many times. The ambience was old world warm and comfortable. My octopus appetizer was enough for dinner and the best i’ve ever had. Then came the presentation of my salted covered branzino which was tender and tasty. The bread was crunchy. My husband had the huge veal chop which he like as well. Next time I’ll save room for dessert. We did have a toast of limoncello (complementary and some yummy cookies) . Next time we get the cappuccino and delicious looking desserts I spied across the way. Oh the entire staff was so gracious too.
