The bar area is great lively and spacious! Drinks are amazing. Dining experience was just as nice! Great atmosphere very LIVELY. GOOD music playing but not too loud which is perfect. Our waitress was outstanding and patient with us! Overall fun night will definitely go back!!!! Crowd was a nice crowd too.

Hadn't dined at Novita in a while. Glad we went back. Good food and service. Burrata mozzarella was wonderful. Creamy and fresh. I also loved the pizza.

We had such a nice dinner outside - atmosphere was lovely, menu had so many options and the kids menu was perfect for my picky eaters, food was very good (excellent compared to other GC restaurants), cocktails were well-made, wine was delicious (I had an amarone that was very nice). Will definitely come back soon! Service was friendly and well-timed.

Waiter forgot about our entrees and disappeared halfway through the night. When manager came over to “apologize” he was rude and dismissive. Would not go back.

Everything was delicious! I went with the girls for a girls night, and we got the grilled octopus (my favorite!), fondue, and prosciutto white pizza. Everything was outstanding! I love the ambiance of Novita, and our waitress let us take our time, and did not rush us at all. We will definitely be back! :)

Quality of food is OK, which is below good. Timing of service was not great. We were half way through the appetizers when we got the entrees.

The only issue I use to have here was the noise level. The partitions added for Covid-19 took care of that. The food and service were outstanding.

We thoroughly enjoyed the food and service was excellent. We were meeting up with friends and thought we were going for lunch. Nowhere on their website did they say only brunch on weekends.

There was only one waitress serving the entire outside tables (complete full), service was soooo slow. Food was ok, this place in my view is not known for the great food but more for the ambience. Known for their wines and they didn't have 2 of my choices.

We’ve been here at least ten times over the years but this was unfortunately a disappointing meal. Food was rushed at us literally five minutes after we ordered and was lukewarm and without flavor Didn’t get more then one sip of our wine down before food arrived and felt very rushed. It felt like a hash slinging diner tonight Was not a very good experience.

The food was delicious, and the service struck a perfect balance of being present often enough to meet all of our needs while not being so present as to be intrusive. This was my second visit--with different people each time--and everyone from both visits was very pleased.
