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!

I am going to try and make this quick. I am Italian and eat at an Italian restaurant almost every Saturday. This restaurant is nice and kind of quaint, tables are small and a little too close together. The prices are a bit high especially the drinks. Most meals come with potatoes and vegetables, to substitute pasta is $8.00, the waiter said it’s fresh. Stop, remember I’m Italian and this is an Italian restaurant. Do me and your other patrons a favor, forget fresh buy De Cecco pasta and don’t charge anything. Hello you are an ITALIAN RESTAURANT, PASTA is Italian not potatoes and vegetables. I had to have the chicken parm because it included pasta. I wanted spaghetti garlic and oil $4.00 up charge. There are at least 10 Italian joints in this immediate area. The food was excellent but this will be our last time here, no one else had availability, I can see why this place did.

We always love to dine here. The food and service are fabulous. Outstanding is the fish cooked in Kosher Salt. No SALT taste at all. You are not pressured at this restaurant. It is truly a great experience in either room. Many people also option to eat outdoors

Another happy experience at Novello’s. My son and his new fiancée were in town and I chose this restaurant since it has always been good. My son and I both had the veal chop which was outstanding and the Dover sole was good as well. Also, the wine list continues to provide a full array at fair prices for a quality restaurant.
For a Thursday the crowd was light resulting in almost too much service!
There was one minor disappointment. The espressos (all three) were not good and it was fortunate that we were given complementary limoncellos which did a good job of restoring our palettes to a happy state.

The shrimp parm was outstanding. The Branzino baked in salt available in very few restaurants in South
Florida (first enjoyed by my wife and I in Brazil) was marveled at by our friends who had not been to Novello before.

Amazing food with an amazing environment. It was raining and the Owner Marco came out to my car with an umbrella to get my 2 month old daughter out of the car so she didn’t get wet. He was extremely friendly and came over to our table a few times throughout the night. We got to talking about what part of Italy he’s from and what part my family is from. Overall very nice conversation. Would highly recommend. Definitely 10 out of 10!

Novello has become our favorite local restaurant. The food and selection of menu items is excellent, the staff is eager to please and attentive.
Location is good, but be sure to slow down a bit as you approach as it is set back a bit from Federal Highway.

Went here for lunch with a few friends. We sat outside and enjoyed the breeze and shade while dining on delicious food with wonderful, friendly service. The owner always comes by to say hello and check on the guests which is a nice touch. It’s always a pleasure eating here as the menu is diverse, the prices are reasonable, portion sizes are perfect and service is wonderful!

Somewhat limited menu with not a lot of fish options. We started with Cesar salad- the dressing was pretty tasteless- no hint of garlic. The livornese sauce was good but portions were moderate. The side of vegetables was minimal and the roast potatoes were
Not seasoned well. They should offer a side of pasta OR potatoes ( this is an Italian restaurant !). This is where the old Renzo’s used to be. Renzo’s was far tastier and had more choices. There are better Italian restaurants around- we are not coming back.

Outrageously expensive. No information on price if the “specials” which turned out to be $60 for fish. Waiter ignored my wife’s request for me to order first and insisted that she order first and ignored me when I tried to order. So rude. Over $400 for 4 people and we had tap water. Food was decent but WAY overpriced. Huge disappointment.
