Managed to get a last minute booking at Navaro's in Launceston and was not disappointed. The Spaghettini ai Frutti di Mare was succulent and subtly spiced and one of the best I have ever tasted anywhere, including Italy. The locally produced olive oil was the most beautifully organic deep green that I have ever seen. The restaurant is staffed and... More

As with every year, my wife and I visited Novaro's for our wedding anniversary. The staff remember us from previous visits and are treated like old friends! The food, as usual, is sublime. We taste each other's meals and everything is superb! Wish we could visit it more often!!

Our food was superbly prepared and presented and was delicious!! The restaurant was busy and yet the meals were served in good time and our waiter and our host... More

Having read the reviews, understanding the popularity, not having a booking and it being Friday, we turned up for an early dinner in the hope we would be made welcome. And welcome we were certainly made. The amuse-bouche of a cold soup with ginger and chilli was wonderfully refreshing, and the main courses were just wonderful, particularly the pasta with... More

OMG we looked at TripAdvisor to decide where to eat and weren't disappointed by our choice, based on reviews. We have on occasion been disappointed by reviews, but not tonight. With an intimate restaurant already nearly half full, we were informed that we would have to be finished by 8.00, not a problem for us oldies. We had the steak... More

We felt as soon as we entered that we were at home and that this would be a great night. The food was superb. The service was excellent and congenial. We had trouble trying to pick a wine even though we know our wine, however our host was able to direct us to a great wine using our information about... More
