Novitá - New York City, Manhattan
Chef owner Marco Fregonese’s innovative take on classical, regional cooking begins with the finest, artisan ingredients and freshest, seasonal products. His distinctive light and flavorful dishes are pure and satisfying and perfectly complemented by a select list of wines from superb Italian specialty and boutique growers.
Novita is located a few steps down from a quiet tree lined street in the Gramercy Park neighborhood. The setting is warm and elegant and the mood quintessentially Italian. In pleasant weather, sidewalk, alfresco dining is offered further adding to Novita’s year round appeal.
Food and service was phenomenal. A full restaurant in New York City on a Saturday night and the staff still made us feel like we were the only people in the restaurant. Pricing was terrific on the dinner menu and surprisingly terrific on the wine menu as well. Great bottle selections. Grazie!
Many visits over many years which always result in an excellent dining experience.
Novita as always was a wonderful dining experience with excellent food and service in a very pleasant room
They served a beautiful desert for free and didn’t charge for the other desert we ordered
Alessandro is the perfect host and provided a wonderful welcome and a great table. As always the food is spectacular!
Really delicious menu!! Drinks, appetizers, entrees all exquisite flavor.
One of my favorite restaurants. Food invariably delicious. Only complaints: too noisy and too cramped. But those discomforts don't stop me from being a regular.
Novità is the best; a neighborhood restaurant with a sophisticated menu and a warm, engratiating wait staff from managers to bus staff. A gem.
The best restaurant in NYC.
Novita is a lovely, quiet room where a diner can feel comfortable, welcome, and in the end, well-fed and cared for. An updated old-school style Italian favorite of mine, Novita offers very good food (I had an excellent homemade pasta that was perfectly cooked) and the kind of ambience that makes one want to return again and again.
Haven't eaten here is several years until this WE ---- it has only gotten better over that time. WONDERFUL.
This is one of the best Italian restaurants in Manhattan. The food is spectacular. I regularly bring friends and family here, and the reaction is always the same: WOW. The manager, Alessandro, is a charming and friendly host who genuinely cares about the guest’s experience. Highly, highly recommend this Flatiron/ Gramercy Park neighborhood gem.
We were 6 people smashed into a table that was too small. It was also sooo hot and we told them so but it didn’t get much cooler if at all.
Considering that this was our first time at this restaurant, we were very pleasantly surprised. Wonderful food; accommodating and professional staff. It was all around a fine experience.
Friendly neighborhood restaurant with excellent food and great service
Maitre'd is SOOOO nice and all the staff makes you feel like family, even thanking you when you leave!
My favorite restaurant EVER! Extraordinary food and service - consistently! Everyone I’ve take there agrees... I can’t say enough about how wonderful Novita is!
Always always always dependably excellent!
Food, service, ambiance all good.
I love coming to Novitá and introduced 2 friends to this restaurant. They really enjoyed the evening.
My favorite neighborhood restaurant. The service is exceptional and I've never had other than a superb meal. I heartily recommend Novitá
Novita is always outstanding! Their food is prepared to perfection. All my meals here have been outstanding. Service is great. Almost hate to rave as I don’t want to have difficulty getting a reservation.
Inly difficulty is room is small and tables close.
Awesome food and service! great location as well
I have been to this restaurant many times and was really disappointed. My guest and I both ordered the shrimp and scallops and on both plates the shrimp was severely overcooked. They offered dessert which neither of us wanted but they brought it anyway and it sat on the table untouched. The mushroom salad was fantastic and I should have stopped there.
We were 6 of us. All the food was shared as family style.Ordered 5 side dishes and eggplant parm as appetizers. Each of them was a delight.
For main course we had pasta in Pesto Sauce, Spaghetti with olive oil and garlic with a touch of red chili flakes and Ravioli in Arabiata sauce. What a perfect combination to taste all the 3 sauces.
The pasta neither dry nor over cooked. It was just right. And the sauces were way above average.
I would rate this restaurant as on of the best Italian restaurants in the city.
This Italian eatery serves superlative food in an energetic yet cozy atmosphere . The menu is large with lots of daily specials. Food is consistently fabulous. Outstanding place!
Novitá continues to be outstanding from every angle. Dover sole is a treat!
Great food and service. The downside is that the place is cramped and usually fully packed. I literally could not carry on on a conversation with the person sitting next to me.
Food is amazing
Staff is exceptional
Owners are terrific
In great location
Try to eat there
Whenever we can
We were late to our reservation and they were so kind and seated us as soon as they could and kept apologizing. Sent us free dessert which was unnecessary. Food and service was exceptionable. Will definately be back.
One of the best Italian restaurants in NYC!
Allesandro and Michaelangelo are the best!
Fantastic food, wine, beer and service! A cosy restaurant and good prices.
Best italian restaurant in town.
Just a special place, Excellent quality food and impeccable service.
Consistently excellent meals and service as well. Always a different daily special.
We had a wonderful time, and since it was our anniversary when the manager heard that we had free glasses of wine and dessert. It was still over $100 for two since we ordered appetizers and main dishes. I just wish the noise level was lower. But the food is delicious.
I enjoyed the stuffed zucchini flowers and pasta with shaved truffles. Pasta was absolutely fresh. Service very attentive.
Celebrating a retirement
The food was delicious! Definitely recommend this restaurant
