Novita is a vibrant 60-seat trattoria serving a seasonally inspired, modern Italian menu.
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.

    First time dining here. They have it together! Fantastic service, great wine list (not cheap) and authentic Italian food. Restaurant was bustling but not too noisy. Will definitely go back.

    The most wonderful experience here. We were visiting from out of town with a large group and grabbed a last minute dinner here on a whim. Truly the most fantastic service. They were SO attentive and helpful to accommodate us and the food was unbelievable and at a reasonable price. Will return upon EVERY visit to NYC in the future.

    Eating at Novita is like eating with family. The food is great and the service lovely. They gave us a glass of Prosecco while we waited for our table and couldn’t have been more pleasant. This one’s on my repeat list for sure!

    Had to wait for a table despite having a reservation. Then they tried to put us at a two top, rigged for three. We stood our ground and finally got a decent table. Why does it always seem that open table reservations get second class service?

    Novita is simply not the same as I remembered. Service was on the slow side but the food was the biggest disappointment of all. My pasta was gummy and stuck together, with the bolognese sauce so spare that it was a bit of a sham. Al Debye not in the vocabulary. The salad was akin to mixed greens from a salad bag with canned shrimp sprinkled on top. Truly mediocre. So disappointing - used to be a favorite. Now no longer on my roster.

    Food was so good. We had the eggplant and asparagus appetizers to start. Both were wonderful. Main dishes were pasta carbonara and a branzino special, equally lovely. Servers were friendly and attentive. I would definitely return and recommend to others.

    Wonderful carpaccio . . . tuna roll equally as good . . . fried stuffed zucchini flowers almost made it but the breading was too much and overwhelmed the texture and flavor of the flowers and the ricotta stuffing. Their version of linguini and clams is outstanding, so was the veal chop and the squid ink pasta with seafood. Strozzapeti with pesto, unfortunately, lacked any defining flavors - the pesto was creamy and bland and we had to add olive oil and salt to wake it up. Excellent desserts.

    My first visit to Novita was very positive so I made a dinner reservation for my friend and myself to have what I thought would be an evening of good food and service. Although the ambiance was lovely, the food was mediocre and the service very poor. Veal Milanese was extremely dry and they gave us a check before offering a coffee and dessert. I spent all night trying to get their attention. Sadly, I wont be back.

    Lovely. Towards the end of dinner the dining room was full, and it was hard to move between tables in getting up and down (a touch noisy as well). Otherwise a DREAMY place with great service and where I would happily eat every night. Beautifully lit and cozy.
