Last experience was disappointing
Party of 3 on a Tuesday night at 8:15, we were kept waiting for 30 minutes for a table
Maitre d was very apologetic, bought a dessert and drinks, but that kind of wait on a weeknight in a neighborhood restaurant isn’t acceptable
Food was only fair, not as good as our past experiences
THE BEST Italian food. Period. The food here is better than ANYTHING I had when I was in Tuscany for 2 weeks. Great service as well. Be sure to order the Pasta with Truffles! EVERYTHING on their menu is prepared to perfection.
Very pleasant service! Delicious food - every course was exceptional!
Outstanding and consistent cuisine.....love sitting in the main dining room.....or outside when weather permits. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The maitre d is charming. The food is truly authentic northern italian cuisine. I recommend the truffles....black or white....well worth the money.
Nice to see the restaurant installed sound-proofing on the ceiling. When we left the restaurant was full and the noise level was quite low.
WONDERFUL. Eager to return. Exceptional food. Thoughtful experienced service. Short walks from Gramercy Park and Flatiron 5th Ave shopping area. Good sized menu with daily specials. Excellent lamb chops over baby spinach with wonderful sauce. Fine fish with asparagus. Shared a large lightly dressed salad and three scoops of flavorful gelato. Good wine list. An excellent small NYC restaurant.
As always, Novita delivers exceptional food, ample portions and fantastic service. Warm, friendly and engaging. Terrific wine list and top shelf cocktails. The fish we had (Branzino, Dover Sole and Monkfish) all prepared to perfection. Novita is consistently excellent and well priced.
Disappointing. We’ve eaten at this restaurant many and usually haves loved it, but the service was inattentive and the food was not up to par. One of our party had to send back his entree and no one bothered to inquire if the replacement was okay.
Excellent in food and service! Everything was done beautifully.
The wine, appetizer, main course and dessert were all perfect. We definitely will come back and highly recommend for a cozy, romantic interesting and healthy meal.
Calamari salad may be the best I've ever had. Mackeral was fresh, beautifully prepared.
Definitely worth having the tiramisu !
Love this wonderful dinner place
Always great food lovely environment
All around amazinn
Service and food were both very good and i would recommend this for a great place to meet for lunch as you can eat well for a good price and have a conversation that you might not have at a bigger place. Only tried it for lunch but will definitely go back for dinner due to the quality of food and service and clean restaurant.
Great food and service. Just the background music was not our taste and too loud. Otherwise great dining experience.
What terrific service and food! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Amazing pasta and welcoming vibe, will be back!
One of NYC's unsung trattorias -- and one of its best. I've been enjoying Novita's Italian cuisine for all of its 20 years, and my wife and I return often. It's one of our favorites.
Great as usual. Wonderful welcome from Melissa. Great service from Margarita. Great food as well.
Novita is consistently one of NYC's best Italian restaurants for food & service.
Chic and cozy place. And very calm like no other places! Love it
We celebrated our anniversary here and it was lovely.
Great dining experience as always. Great service, food and wine. Warm, inviting space with very reasonable noise level.
As always, impeccable Italian food. A little bit noisy but the ambience is cozy.
Consistently excellent food & service - one of the best Italian restaurants in the city - been going for 14 years and always completely satisfied.
Novita is my go to restaurant for meeting girlfriends from the upper east and I live in the west village. The food is really good, the service is great and we can hear each other!
After all these years still a great place to go to in Gramercy area. We ordered all of the specials for the evening , stuffed zucchini flowers over prosciutto, Bronzino entree, service is very good, love this place.
Novita isn't on many gustatory radars, but this diner thinks the Italian food is dependably outstanding. Seating is cramped, and oddly, though the restaurant is frequently full, reservations can be easy to get. And thank goodness for that. Novita is one of Manhattan's top trattorias.
Amazing. Chef Marco Fregonese and his team never failed to amaze his patron for so many years. Thank you Novita team for making every meal so special and very good manner service staff. Will be back soon.
Loved our dinner. Very nice atmosphere. Perfect for our Birthday celebration. In addition to the wonderful menu there were many specials to choose from. The pasta dishes are delish!! Enjoyed our celebrity sighting...Isabella Rosellini and her son Roberto!
As always Novita delivers fresh, delicious food. The service is great. The prices are reasonable and the Northern Italian cuisine is authentic. Superb wine list. The host is warm and gracious.
Excellent service and food
Went for late diner. Service was friendly and attentive. Our server was great. Added immensely to the experience. Food came out on time and was hot. Authentic Italian. Dover sole was great choice. So was Bolognese pasta. Was not crowded due to time so noise was not a problem. Cozy Moonstruck feel. Very nice evening.
We love Novitá. The food is always fantastic as is the service.
Very good place for quality lunch. App forcing me to write 50 characters.
This is my go to place weather we are celebrating, guests in town or no one wants to cook!
I regularly return to Novita for the great food, Service and NYC vibe. Consistency is king here and we are always treated well.
Had wanted to try Novita for quite some time....it was good, but not all we had hoped for in terms of service and ambience. Dover Sole & Biscotti however, were outstanding.
Large menu, excellent food. Small, always crowded, energetic atmosphere.
Fabulous Italian restaurant where the food and service are always perfect. Neighborhood gem in a sea of good restaurants.
