Nova has a very comfortable feel to it. The hospitality is very warm, and the chef is out and about interacting with the guests. So lovely. We are going to make it a regular occasion to have dinner at Nova. Plenty of parking nearby.

Nova is really a lovely place to have a meal. Super safe and respectful. The food was delicious and the staff were very friendly and professional. It was my first time out in months and I hope to go back again next week. Thank you Nova for a lovely evening.

I went to this restaurant when the government restrictions allowed outdoor dining. My friend and I had a great time!The staff were very friendly and interactive. The food was good (I wouldn’t say the best). The menu is a mix between Mexican and Italian food which might be great for some.

Had a great night, food excellent, service great. Staff polite and very organised. But table was a let down, it was like sitting out in back garden. Pity cause all other tables were different. Couldn’t stretch legs. But would definitely go back again. Highly recommend

While the food was very tasty the staff were obviously stressed. The restaurant was not full and yet you could feel their panic. The service was also very poor. Luckily we were not in a rush.

Absolutely sensational food. Leo the owner and chef makes everything himself from scratch. The cheese burger spring rolls are bizarre sounding but to die for. Teriyaki salmon was delish and home made brownies as a dessert yummy. The early bird deal is great value. Service was as you would expect for such a cool place. Thanks for the nice touch in arranging the flowers for my beautiful girlfriend. Will definitely be back

This restaurant has great potential, but the staff seems to be inexperienced and clumsy. The menu is a weird collection of different kinds of food (platters, menu's, tapas, mexican). The food is however very good.
