Osso Bucco was good, meat fell off the bone; potatoes seemed to have taste and texture of boxed. Vegetables were tasteless—out of season. Our martinis were watered down. Espresso was excellent

The food was delicious! Service was attentive, helpful and cordial. It was a little loud, but par for the course on a Friday evening. Will definitely come again and will recommend.

The restaurant seated us promptly, even though we had been delayed in transit getting there. Service was friendly and efficient. The noise level was moderate, so that I and the old friend I was dining with could converse easily. The special desert of the evening (blueberry lemon cheesecake) was good. The standout of the evening was the entree: the salmone atlantico: a salmon fillet with crabmeat, fresh spinach and a creamy Madeira wine sauce. It was fabulous, one of those rare dishes that would make me want to go back to the restaurant soon. I would - if I didn't live in New York City, but hope to the next time I visit with my friend in Worcester. We certainly have some good restaurants here in New York, but Nuovo held its own against them.

We came to Nuovo for the first time to celebrate my daughter's 18th birthday. We had reservations and were greeted and seated as soon as we arrived. The entire experience was fabulous. The wine was marvelous as were the appetizers and warm bread; each of the 7 people enjoyed their meal and even saved a little room for dessert. Or meals ranged from veal alla caciatore, fettucini alfredo, cheese tortellini, and shrimp scampi and all were delicious. Personally I thought my tiramissu was one of the best I have had and the cappuccino that accompanied it was equally good. We are looking forward to returning and having another enjoyable meal. Thank you.

Nuovo has become the "go-to" restaurant for my wife and I when we want a solidly enjoyable dining experience. We have come here several times now, this time was for my wife's birthday.
Though slightly crowded (it was after all a Saturday evening) we were seated on time per our reservation, had drinks and wine, appetizers and full entrees, superior service throughout. Price was as always very reasonable for a white table cloth dining experience w liquor (stayed under $150) and food was excellent as we have come to expect.
Place is intimate, not excessively fancy, reminds us a lot of eating in Florence when on vacation in Italy. Ttotally satisfying

Wonderful restaurant - service was great, large menu, complimentary valet parking. Not as pricey as some of the other fine dining options in the neighborhood - HOWEVER..... party of 3, we all ordered the ribeye steak: 1 med; 2 med-rare. They all came well done. Of course, the server offered to take them back, which we declined because by the time you get your meal, you just want to eat. I would think the chef in this caliber restaurant could cook a steak to order. It wasn't even close, not arguable whether they were medium or slightly pink - they were well done! It was a Tuesday night, the restaurant was not crowded, so they couldn't have been overwhelmed with tickets. Just Bummed.....

They only had one bartender working on Valentine’s Day so while we were waiting for our reservation it took a very long time to get a drink. The setting was nice but the wine list is over priced for low end wines. The food was not good, I ordered the shrimp scampi and it tasted like chicken noodle soup with shrimp on top.

Chicken was yummy! Chobani salad not worth $10, quantity was small and olives were Spanish olives that you get in a can. Need to upgrade to kalamata olives. Service was excellent and ambiance. Will definitely go back.
