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!
Take out and delivery available! Live piano music Weenesay to Sunday.

We went on Valentine’s Day. Didn’t know it was a limited menu so that stunk, but the ambiance was great. Owner I presume was very friendly, extra Italian. I am Italian as well, but he took the stereotypes to the next level. The food we had was good, not enough pasta dishes to me. For example, I wanted gnocchi. But it wasn’t on the VDay Menu. Bread and bruschetta were great. I had veal picatta, very good. Fiancé had some pasta dish that was very good. Deserts excellent. The server was mediocre, not very attentive. Seemed bothered to be there. A bit costly for an Italian spot. 54 bucks for a veal chop parm is more than a filet mignon. Overall, I enjoyed it.

We requested a table far away from people, because of Covid concerns. We were given the absolutely perfect table. The food was exemplary. All of our friends enjoyed their meal. Everything was perfectly prepared and delicious! The service was outstanding, even though it was very crowded

Covid makes it tough but here is our experience. 1. Outdoor dining is in the parking lot. Not optimal but it is what it is. Can eat indoors but that's not gonna be me for a while. 2. There was a problem with the ordering system so many orders got delayed. Took maybe 45 min between appetizer and main course. Again, understandable but not optimal. 3. My food(chicken piccatta) was tasty. Not outrages but tasty. Lentil soup that I had was a little on the salty side but I like it like that so the soup was a winner. 3. My wife is gluten free and the restaurant get credit for having gluten free pasta, but it was WAY overcooked to he point of being mush. The manager was VERY apologetic about the delays and at the end of the meal tried to make it right by giving us each a free glass of sparkling wine. Very nice gesture. Will we go back? Maybe outside of covid times. The food was good enough to deserve another chance.

I totally loved this restaurant. Unfortunately they were minus a bartender and we were at the bar. The wine list wasn't presented to us but it is impressive on a glance. Outdoor area is beautiful, bar is awesome and stocked with quality and I will definitely go back there. Atmosphere and staff were great.

Outstanding food and service. Best Italian restaurant in Palm Beach County.
Eating outside is a pleasure here--wide open and nice. Also very good wine selection. Had Beluga Gold Vodka which was a treat.

It’s always a pleasure to dine here. First you a greeted by the charming Marco. When you are seated you’re given water of your choice then a few minutes to settle in. There are always specials which are recited beautifully by your waiter. The food never disappoints. The branzino baked in salt is a favorite as well as the veal chop prepared in 3 different ways. Salads are fresh and generous. Tiramisu is delicious. Dinner always ends with delicious cookies and a bit of limoncello, gratis!

Novello is one of my favorite restaurants.
The waiters are good and the food very good. However this was New YeRs Eve and it was terribly disappointing. We sat down and they gave us a special menu. — I should have called. It was $125.00 a person. I only liked one dish offered. I ordered the Caesar salad.
Now doesn’t a Caesar mean anchovies???
My husband told waiter we wanted anchovies... bill comes for almost $300 and there is an extra charge///$3.00 for anchovies! Unreal. Waiter would not remove. Also at 9 the two chocolate desserts were gone
Will not return here. Positano is half the price, just as good.

Another amazing dining experience by Marco and his Novello team! I took family and also friends that had never been before and they were very impressed with the food and service. Our server Salem, was patient and attentive and made sure our guests were well taken care of. This has become my go-to place when my Italian friends come to town. The entire team made sure to follow proper COVID protocols too! Thanks for a great Christmas Eve experience
