The food and ambiance were excellent. We have experienced many Italian restaurants in South Florida and this is one of the best.

I highly recommend Trattoria Novello as we were treated like family at the restaurant.

Food was very good. The Grilled Octopus appetizer was a major winner. The Yellow Fin was very good. We round the menu a little limited for our tastes. Especially in the protein main courses selections. Very limited deserts. No bar a draw back as well.

This was our second time here and we were not disappointed. Both the food and the service were exceptional. This is a small restaurant - just seven tables, but the menu choices were not lacking and the freshness of ingredients and creativity of preparation will have us coming back soon. Prices are reasonable and the chef welcomes every guest. Charming spot not to be missed.

Great food as well as a nice place for a quiet dinner. What a delightful find! I am so tired of restaurants where you have to shout over the "buzz" to be heard by your dinner companion. Soft background music made for a sophisticated and relaxing dining experience. The food was well prepared and delicious. Both of us ordered the burrata and beet salad which was wonderful. I had mussels fra diavolo. The pasta was prepared perfectly al dente. My companion had the branzino which he said was fresh and flavorful. We were welcomed by the chef/owner who was very gracious. So happy to have found this delightful establishment and will definitely return.

I want to start off and say that for over fifteen years of searching high and low for the perfect place to enjoy an Italian meal, I have found the place. Trattoria Novello, in Pompano Beach, Florida, home of the amazing Chef Pasquale!

We returned to Trattoria Novello after being disappointed with the service several years ago. We are happy we did. This is a WONDERFUL restaurant. The food is delicious!! Be sure to get the antipasto platter. Beautiful presentation and very good appetizer. The pastas are homemade. The service has improved and is very good. This is a great addition to the Pompano Beach dining scene. Can't wait to dine there again!!

What can I say? There service is attentive, yet not overbearing. The Branzino a must! The calamari is perfection. We got the Antipasto and it is not only a gorgeous presentation, but delicious and has so much to taste. We also got the Filet Mignon special and it was outstanding and perfectly prepared. The pastas were al dente as it should be and the wine suggested was delicious. My second time here and will always be a place I visit when I am in town. Like that it could be months that I come and the quality is consistent.

A tiny gem in Pompano Beach between the ICW and the Isle Casino, just east of US 1. Yummy yummy food, great choices for wine (no liquor - just beer and wine), and not terribly expensive. Highly recommended for date night or small group of friends.

This is the best "dining experience" I have had in a long time. We enjoyed dinner for over two hours and every course was outstanding. The Antipasti is amazing, get it! The dinners were all excellent. The pasta was al dente and home made, the seafood was fresh and the chop was succulent. Desert and espresso topped off a perfect evening. The waiter, Marco, was informative and made you feel as he was serving you in his own home. It's nice to have a waiter who spends time conversing and not just throwing food at you and running away. The owners, the hostess and the chef, both came to our table to see if we enjoyed our dinner and told us about the culinary history. Nice touch! I will be back for certain. Just a heads up that it is beer and wine only.

This second visit confirmed our first impression that Trattoria Novello is head and shoulders above the typical Italian restaurant. It is cozy, attractively appointed and warmly welcoming. Chef Pat uses the highest quality ingredients and combines both traditional and innovative recipes to create a diverse menu that makes choices difficult. This situation is complicated further by the list of tasty daily specials. The only solution to this dilemma is to visit and dine often. Frequent visits are encouraged by the Chef and his wife Kim who are determined to make customers feel like family. With this sort of ambiance and delicious food, Trattoria Novello is the perfect “vicino casa” or local family restaurant that becomes a go-to destination for those in search of a fine meal and a warm, friendly atmosphere.

The BEST food in our little Pompano Beach Atlantic Ave area. If you want some real authentic Italian cuisine, not the "pizza/pasta" regulars, Trattoria Novello will appeal to your palate. Thank you Chef Patrick. Wine selection is fantabulous!
