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!

As always the charming owner Marco, greeted us at the door. A nice start to the evening. The special veal chop was to die for. Actually, the food is always exceptional here which is why we return. The staff deserves kudos too. They don’t miss a trick. The prices are reasonable for the area too. I’m sure we will continue to return here to dine.

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.

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.

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.

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.
