Great food every time! Try everything. You won't be disappointed!
Wonderful food, great ambiance and terrific service!
Ate outside. It was a pleasant evening. The pace of service was slower than we all would have preferred. The food was, as always, excellent. Overall, terrific.
The food was horrible. They screwed up very simple dishes such as Carbonara for example. Their fried items were soggy. No technique at all. Pasta sauces watery and flavorless. Fish was good. I think the quality of the ingredients themselves are good but the preparation and overall resulting flavor I would give zero stars.
Always a favorite. Staff is wonderful, attentive and accommodating your special needs. Highly recommend

Absolutely fabulous experience
Delicious food. Authentic Italian food and wait staff! We love Novita.. it’s our restaurant of choice for family gatherings
The food and service fantastic! When they heard we were celebrating a birthday, dessert was on them!
Great food, Great Location & Great service. A trifecta!
Nice menu and very tasty food! The service was prompt and attentive.
We had a lovely lunch sitting outside for our parents anniversary lunch.
Overall very much enjoy going to this place for great food and ambiance. Has that fancy night out feel and great food. A little pricey but as expected for the quality.
Great food ans great service!!!
Usually the food is very good. Not today. I was disappointed.
Food was excellent.the manager was very friendly and gracious.no one bothered us for sitting 21/2 hrs over a very leisurely lunch.We will definitely go again.
First time at this restaurant. Everything was fresh and delicious. Wine by the bottle prices reasonable. We had the stuffed zucchini blossoms, spaghetti and clam sauce and the Branzino. All exceptional.
Wonderful evening. Great waiter. True neighborhood place.
It was a disappointment. The food was average, and the service was not good.
A neighborhood gem, with excellent food and attentive service.
Always great! Terrific service from staff, delicious food and reasonably priced for NYC.
Food was very good and worth the price. Pastas are made with Italian flour, except for penne, and are perfectly cooked. Unfortunately, the wines are very overpriced, which will keep me from returning as often as I otherwise would.
This is one of my favorite restaurants with great food and attentive staff.
Great food great service.
This was a really pleasant surprise. Very authentic Italian food. Outstanding service, great food, nice wine list and wonderful desserts (the tiramisu is to die for, and so is the nougat semifreddo).
Authentic Italian dining. Good wine list, good service and very reasonably priced for what you get.
Excellent great service
Amazing hidden gem. Authentic Italian fare staffed by helpful, friendly people. The stuffed mushrooms and squid ink pasta were fantastic. They had a delicious Valpolicella Ripasso by the glass. Ask for Alessandro or Michelangelo
Novita is my favorite restaurant and so lucky it’s in my neighborhood! Excellent for and incredible service!
Novita, a clean, well kept restaurant which seemed to have more seating outside than in. We were six inside. Service was great except for a minor (amusing) hitch. We ordered a bottle of white wine which was poured into our glasses then placed into an ice bucket. One of the ladies decided she wanted ice in her wine glass (a visiting French lady, no less) and asked a bus-boy to bring it. When he saw the lady attempting to put a cube of ice in her wine-glass, he gave her withering look and scolded her. Even her husband decided to shut up and let her take it.
The food was good, the service, ambience was good and the Italian accented waiters gave us all the attention we needed. We will go back.
First dinner in NYC post COVID shutdown. We LOVED every bit of our meal and the experience. Food delish; wine Many many thanks to Gennaro!
One of my favorite Italian spots. Always a warm welcome; attentive service and great food. They never rush you either which is a big plus.
Charming restaurant, easy neighborhood location, warm and helpful staff. The food is good too...We eat indoors.
For New York, the portions were wonderful! You will not leave hungry, and that is saying something these days. The food was outstanding....delicious. The outdoor tables were wonderful...they made the most out of the sidewalk space. The service was initially excellent but the restaurant got busy and then our waiter literally disappeared. Quite literally. My water never got refilled (I was thirsty) and I ended up hunting down our waiter to ask for the check when I went to the bathroom. He never brought it. I had to get back up out of my chair in search for someone to ask for our check twice. I stood over the waitress who took pity on me to pay the bill as she charged the credit card. The waiter was clearly swamped, but he made no effort to apologize or make amends in any way. Had there been a modicum of acknowledgement, I might have avoided this poor review of the service. But shame on them for being in the service industry and handling their overwhelm so poorly. At least apologize.
lovely...outdoors...energetic but not too loud.
Waiters are great
