"Where good taste never ends, you know it's Noto's!" Because first impressions count, the Noto's family has given special attention to making a strong, solid & respectable statement with the building's exterior & entry. You'll find a grand stone building with multiple entries. Noto's is not only a fine-dining restaurant, but a large banquet facility. The old world atmosphere of the interior speaks of quality & care. Noto's lounge has live music, a gracious but casually elegant dining room with a massive wine list recognized by Wine Spectator Magazine, & spectacular authentic Italian foods! A new banquet entryway features a white marble spiral staircase with a glistening chandelier. The staircase ascends to a ballroom & descends into the newly completed Wine Cellar with thousands of bottles of wine & a new dining area for our Chef's Dinners. Dining spaces in the cellar are semi-private brick arched spaces with individual chandeliers. A must see!

    We have not been to Noto’s before, this was our first time. My stepdad met us there from out of town, for his birthday. Service was fine, server seemed new. Food was ok, the bread was dry. Overall, it was ok, just expensive.

    Took 15 minutes to get our drinks, had to ask for bread and oil and they only gave us a little and said they were making more and it would be right out but we never received it. Never received our calamari appetizer and asked twice for it. Food was average/nothing special, broccoli was cold, asked for Parmesan cheese twice. Service was very bad and the waiters seemed as if they had too many tables which led them to forget things. For the price and “fine dining” I would not recommend

    Went with my 13 year old daughter for her birthday and was disappointed. Place was not busy but waiter ignored us after getting our food. She got the filet and although it was cooked perfectly it tasted awful(funky mushrooms and sauce). Chicken parm was ok but for $100 without alcohol or dessert I expected a better meal.

    Noto’s just doesn’t disappoint! The wine selection is second to none. The service is top notch. From The moment we were seated , we were greeted with smiling faces and by people who were determined that our first experience would rank up with one of our best dining experiences. From appetizers to the main course and finishing with exquisite desserts, we were treated like we were long lost and appreciated family members. We are thankful for everything and we are still beaming from our last evening’s experience. Kudos to Tony and his Team!

    The service was absolutely terrible. Waitress was very slow and had zero suggestions or knowledge of the menu. She kept disappearing and we kept wondering where she was and/or where our food was. I had to ask her if there were any specials. We asked for available kid drink options and she had someone bring us our drinks and one was a mocktail that my daughter did not like. When she finally appeared we asked her about the drink and she had no clue what was in it and we never found out and she left it on the bill even though we did not order it and my daughter did not drink it. The food was pretty good but we probably will not return based on the service.

    Special birthday dinner. First time at Noto's. Fabulous wine list, though the wine we chose was out of stock. No problem, but it shouldn't have taken 20 mins to let us know that. Chicken parm was very disappointing; it had gristle in it. Caprese salad included mealy, tasteless tomatoes. Understandable that it's hard to get good tomatoes in the winter, but if they can't do better than that, they shouldn't serve the dish. No one asked about the birthday even though the OpenTable reservation asked what the occasion was. Not a terrible experience, but certainly below the standards I expected out of such a fine dining restaurant.

    We had high hopes for Notos but we ended up leaving. We had to wait for 10 minutes to be seated for our reservations while the host “found some menus”. The menus we were given were filthy - stained with food. We then sat at our table for another 20 minutes without being greeted, given a wine list, or offered water. My husband got up to find someone. We overheard the host tell another server (manager maybe) that the server said she was “too busy” and couldn’t take us. So this server/manager told us it was our lucky day and that we got her. It was in fact not our lucky day, we continued to wait for her to return. When she did, she was less than helpful with the wine list and bordered on rude when she went to ask the bartender for an answer to our question. At that point, we left. Maybe the food would have been the saving grace but honestly, we didn’t want to give our business to Notos. They were not short staffed, just under managed. Very disappointing.
