My family had a wonderful dinner experience at Nuovo. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. Nuovo serves Italian food. This is a relatively new restaurant in town, this is our third time eating here and we highly recommend it!

Nuovo has 'complementary' valet parking. The gentlemen who operate the stand are friendly and take good care of your car. They are careful drivers. Make sure you have two dollars in cash to tip them. There is no provided restaurant parking, Nuovo is on a VERY busy street. Our car had to be parked two blocks down on the street... More

Small, comfortable, very good service, nice ambiance, pricy. The four entrees ordered were scallops with home made ravioli, mahi mahi putanesca, chicken saltembuca and petite lamb chops. The three Italian dishes were good but the 4 petite lamb chops were very petite and were not at all tender; at $27; very disappointing. The calamari app was very tender and nicely... More

After a recent show at the Hanover Theatre, we enjoyed an excellent meal at Nuovo. Our waitress was one of the best waitresses that has ever served us. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and had the right balance of checking in on us, but not doing it too much. The menu was extensive and there is something that pretty much even... More

Finally........an amazing restaurant outside Greater Boston. I booked Nuovo based on a recommendation from Yelp and Trip Adviser. I was attending the Hanover Theater with my husband and was looking for an unusual restaurant with an amazing menu. This restaurant got top marks and now I understand why. Nuovo is an Italian restaurant with modern flair. Gone are the piles... More

We had a special event reception here upstairs with approximately 70 people. Had appetizers, buffet food, cake for dessert, and the bar going. With all that activity, service was very good and still managed to be personal. All the food we had was very good, and consistently delivered even for our large party. The space upstairs was very nice, private... More

I made a reservation for my self, my husband, and my parents and we all had a fantastic night! We had a table right by the window and adjacent to the live pianist playing holiday songs. Great atmosphere!... More

Nuovo handled a small family gathering on short notice with grace, ease, and fantastic food. I have to say the eggplant parm is the best on the planet. Not to mention the Tiarmisu! Wonderful experience for business meetings, fun, or family. Utmost recommendation

Food authentic and delicious. Large portion sizes. House salad could be full meal for someone who was not too hungry . No room for Dessert! Room could prove tight in some places. Tables leave little room for taking jackets off and on. Possible to bump into other diners. Service was very good with bit of a wait to get check.

We sat at the second table from the front the entrance on Friday the 16th at 6:30 pm. On a very cold night, this is not a good place to sit. Our waitress was not professional in knowing her menu items. She got confused over and over with ingredients on the appetizers and entrees. The also made us feel very... More
