Our waiter, Brandon, was attentive but not excessive, which is great. We both had salmon that was cooked perfectly. The atmosphere was great; we were sat by the bar and it was a little noisy but i’m not sure it would have been better anywhere else. Nevertheless is was the Friday night out we had hoped for. Nuovo is a great spot and i’m sure that we’ll be back #LetsGoBrandon

First our shrimp cocktail was warm. Apparently, they served it on a warm dish. The table behind about the same issue. The owner apologized and took it of the bill. Second, the waiter knocked over my husband’s cocktail and apologized and cleaned it, but never replaced the drink or removed it from the bill. I am definitely not in a rush to return to this restaurant.😂

We were a party of 6 and everyone had a clean plate and really enjoyed our meals. We also liked that we could order meals on the light side ( no sides). Wish more restaurants would have this option (it would cut back on good food being thrown away). First time here but will definitely be back.

The restaurant was very pretty. The cocktails were good and the bartender “T” was great. So were the hostesses. The food was just ok. I didn’t eat 1/3 of mine. One member of our party had the bolognese and said it was delicious. We asked for bread and were told they had rolls but there would be a charge for them. This was surprising as every Italian restaurant I’ve ever been to includes bread. We declined. Overall the place was nice, the staff was lovely, and the food was ok, but I likely won’t go back for dinner.

Why on Earth do people bring babies out to dinner? A family of 8 (?) plus 3 little toddlers/babies were sitting to the right of us and the kids screamed the entire time, other than when someone took one of them out of the dining room.

To the left of us, were 8 young working adults who got drunker and drunker and they no longer spoke, but yelled at the top of their lungs.

Unfortunately, it was pouring out so we could not get the outdoor seating we requested. The waitstaff were wonderful but explained that they were short staffed and there were no other tables available. Four of us went to celebrate our husbands' birthdays.

My friends had eaten at Nuovo several times and suggested it for a special dinner. We each had an appetizer and then ordered our meals. My rack of lamb was delicious, cooked well-done as requested. My husband's steaks came out medium rare and bloody. One friend had the lobster special and was up all night with stomach cramps and the other friend ordered a shrimp dish.

Deserts were very good and the waitstaff brought us small glasses of champagne to celebrate. After we paid, both friends apologized and said that the food was definitely not up to the fine level it had been previously.

Both my friend's husband and I wear hearing aides and the dinner was excruciating. We were exhausted trying to hear our spouses talk over the babies and bad behavior of the young adults.

Went on a busy Saturday evening for an anniversary dinner. Had a lovely time, great service and the food was amazing. Was personally wished a happy anniversary by the lovely co-owners (and charming couple) Alex and Loretta. They went out of their was to take extra care of us on our special night. Valet parking made getting in and out a breeze. Highly recommend!

Way too long for servers to ask if we needed anything. Drinks took long but appetizer came in almost too fast like they were already cooked waiting to come out when someone ordered. We were never asked if we wanted another drink. It was my husbands birthday and he was not happy with the choice
