Amazing yet simple flavours and beautifully presented food. You pay top dollar, but worth it for a special occassion or treat. My partner wanted to try abalone while I wanted a vego option. This always puts seafood restaurants out the picture. This place has a perfect menu for all taste buds! Friendly and attentive staff. Thank you for a brilliant... More

My husband and I love this restaurant. It has everything fine dining like you would expect in Sydney, local hospitality like only small towns can provide and a fitting price for such a great experience. Most of the time I can't go past the steak but the whole menu is delicious.

We arrived to a very busy restaurant which was clearly under staffed. Such a pity, because when things slowed down, normality, and manners, returned and the staff showed what they could do when not over extended. Why were they overextended one could ask? If you are fully booked, put on more staff, or stagger diners arrival would seem to be... More

The food and service is always impeccable here! Always impressed. The gnocchi is amazing and I'd rate it up there with the real deal I ate in Italy. The staff are very knowlegable and the feel of the restaurant is welcoming. Definitely recommend. I'd definitely book as it is a small place and very popular.

My partner and I had dinner at Novaro's last night and it was simply amazing. We shared 2 starters and 2 mains so that we could try as many different dishes as we could. All the food was impeccable and the service exemplary. It is a small restaurant so I would suggest pre booking. We just about had room to... More

Enjoyed a terrific dinner at Novaro's. The spaghettini with seafood and the gnocchi showcased the quality of the fresh produce. The pea, spinach leaf and chilli salad, whilst very simple, was a taste sensation. The staff are wonderfully attentive and professional. The drinks list offers a great choice. A highly recommended choice in Launceston. ps: The Frangelico semi-freddo with chocolate... More
