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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

First time at this restaurant. Saturday night 7:30 and only 4 tables occupied. There is another side & outside as well, I don’t know how many people were over there.
We both ordered the special,which was Maine lobster tails 2 cut in half & 2 shrimp, over pasta.The lobster was stuck in the shell, which means they are old!
We were not asked if we wanted Parmesan over the dish. We opted out of desert. When the bill came the dish was $ 56.00 each. We have dined in some really upscale
restaurants and this definitely isn’t one of them. That price was definitely over the top even if the tails were fresh, they were only about 3-4oz each & 2 medium shrimp.
We will not return, too many good restaurants in this town.

Food was excellent from beginning to end. Service was professional.
The only downside was noise. A small packed room with had surfaces is no place for a piano. The pianist would play, so diners increased their volume and then he would play louder...back and forth until it was a steady 85-90 decibels (I checked). That’s lawn mower territory.

Gave it a second shot and found prices not in keeping with delivery. Everything was "good" but nothing really shined... and not at the mostly low-mid $30's prices. Nothing bad to say and the owner is attentive, which means something to us. A nice evening with good wine and good food and good service. If the prices were in the mid $20's it would have been worth the 1/2 hr drive. Once we're into the 30s, our expectations jump... a lot.

We enjoyed our evening - the place is small and located in the back of a strip mall. But we found the food and the wine to be very good! I had the ravioli and my friend had the veal - and shared the tartufo for dessert. Service was slow at times but it seemed that was because they were understaffed. We would go back if we found ourselves in that area.

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.
