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, 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 extensive wine cellar or order drink from top shelf liquor as you peruse the menu. At Novello, we suggest that you dine like an Italian...
Take out and delivery available! Live piano music Tuesday to Saturday .

    In town for a quick getaway. Was craving some good Italian food- Found Novello on a search of local food and the reviews didn't disappoint- we're not big eaters and kept it simple with an eggplant and buffalo mozzarella in a blush sauce and spaghetti and meatballs---- the meatballs are absolutely delicious!!! It was fresh and hot - clearly the kitchen had it together!!!!The owner, our waiter and the rest of the staff were 100% attentive and charming. Definitely recommend and would return. Thanks for a nice dinner !

    Novello offers a great deal: very good food, attentive and knowledgeable service, as well as great drinks. Appies were Burrata, and a combination of roasted peppers and white anchovies. Both were excellent. Mains were Chicken Novello (Chicken with prosciutto and mozzarella, over spinach), and linguine and clams. Again, they were very good. No dessert-too full.

    We love Italian food and after trying many of the Italian restaurants on 'Italian restaurant row' (Federal Hwy in Boca/Delray) we landed on our favorite - Novello. The food is consistently delicious. Marco is a wonderful host - ask him to reommend a bottle of wine and you will not be disapointed. Our favorite place!

    The team at Novella is a well oiled machine from the greeting of "Welcome Home" greeting to the fantastic serving team that work in concert to keep you hydrated, lbated and satiated. My wife and I celebrated our anniversary and have never had a better Italian cuisine experience. I have enjoyed Italian food all over the country and have never had a better Chicken Parm. We enjoyed PEI Mussels and Veal Meatball app accompanied by a dollop of ricotta. Delish! Wine was great and deserts offthe hook. Try the chocolate dipped ice-cream. Incredible. The owner shared a shot of chilled Limoncello with us which was a great touch. You will not be disappointed by the team at Novello. Bona Pettite!

    Outstanding! Never seems to disappoint. I had the special Osso bucco(not of sure spelling) it was suburb. My aunt had the rack of lamb and was prepared to perfection. Thanks Novello for always making me feel welcomed & Marco for suggesting a great bottle wine! Until next time!

    The food is excellent. People should be aware that although they promote the piano experience and music room on their web site and on Open Table yet when I was seated I was told “oh we don’t guarantee the music room. I said I specifically booked it - “sorry” was the answer.

    We came to Novello to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year. Our reservation was at 7:30pm for inside, and we waited around 30 minutes, I understand it is a busy day. Maya was friendly and sat us, Salman was our waiter and he did a good job. I asked for the steak to be medium rare and it came out well done, once it came back it was rare and cold in the center. Marco made it right by bringing the seafood linguini which was very good. Great selection of wines. We will definitely come back on a regular day to give it another shot, because the rest of the food was unbelievable. Grazie Marco, Maya and Salman.

    It was Valentines’s day, but they didn’t honor the room I asked for. My table wasn’t ready for my reservation. I didn’t like the room they put us in. The service was slow. I thought this restaurant would get it right. I spent a lot of money and it was disappointing. Not sure I am going back.

    Ce restaurant a deux ambiances très différentes. La première très dynamique avec ambiance et musique et un service convivial. La deuxième partie en salle à manger isolée est un restaurant sans musique et sans ambiance. On m’avait parlé de la partie animée du restaurant mais j’ai été placé dans la partie ennuyante probablement appréciée par certains. Déception . En plus, la nourriture est juste correcte !! . À ce prix je me serais attendu à mieux .

    The menu promised great things, and we weren’t disappointed. The anchovie appetizer was wonderful, and our entrees-my veal sorrentino and my wife’s pasta-were excellent. The drinks were excellent as well. Service was very welcoming and attentive. This place will now become a part of our rotation.
