They food was superb! I had the lamb and it was very flavorful down to the roasted vegetables.They were very open to any accommodations. Even the simple dishes like the chicken parm was out standing. They really put a lot into their food and you can tell. The service is amazing with each sever throughout the restaurant you could see smiles everywhere. They also took the cleaning and sanitation very seriously and that made the whole experience comforting. 10/10 would recommend.

The appetizers were perfect to share, the entrees were beautiful and delicious, and dinner ended on a great note with a shared tiramisu. For the rest of the night we talked about how delicious the food was AND how full we both were.

Drinks were good but food was just ok. Sauce was very sweet. Could have used more cheese on the parmesan. For the price I would try somewhere else next time.

We had a great dining experience at Nuovo! Four years ago we held our rehearsal dinner there and they did a terrific job. We’ve been back regularly since then.
We asked to sit at a high top near the bar because the bartender is fabulous- friendly, attentive and makes wonderful drinks.
The owners check in on you and are gracious and appreciative of your business. We had chicken piccata and the salmon on lightly tossed greens. Nice to have menu option for smaller portions! The food was delicious. I had a decaf cappuccino and they treated us to a glass of champagne for our anniversary!
Highly recommend!

Nuovo did a very good job presenting both indoor and outdoor dining options.. We told the hostess how glad we were to be back and she thanked us for trusting them to do the right things....that was awesome.

As usual, food was great, service was attentive. My husband loved his cioppino - had is fra diavlo. My shrimp and scallop special was very well done. Straws were served with drinks as a nod to the covid processes.

This continues to be one of our go to places, where expectations are consistently met.

A great restaurant and definitely worth a try. Food is always great and service is not far behind. The outside dining is a nice touch with the only draw back......can be loud with street traffic on a Saturday night.

It was a nice evening out. Being outdoors did offer challenges though, our table was not stable and there were many flies that needed constant swatting. One did land in my husbands wine so there went that glass. The location doesn't lend itself for a quiet romantic dinner for two, there was lots of screaming, motorcycle races and sirens throughout the meal. No fault of the establisments, just an unfortunate result of location and none of this would likely deter us from returning.

We sat outside for dinner on a Saturday. The food was so delicious. And the service was top notch. Our server Nancy was outstanding! She was always around but not intrusive and extra friendly. Good value for great food and parking was easy! Definitely we'll be back!
