The atmosphere was great and the service impeccable. Food was out of this world from appetizer to dessert and coffee. You must go here.

Great Food and Service. The place is really nice and you get a lot of food for the price you pay. I highly recommend you go here.

Food was great. Restaurant was not too busy. The waiter was wonderful but he was almost too attentive. We kind of felt like he was eating dinner with us the way he hovered. Don't get me wrong he was a great guy just a little too attentive. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. It's all amazing

MY wife and I have been going to Cafe Navona a couple times a year for the past 10 years at least. We always call ahead to reserve a table by the fireplace that we call ours. The staff is attentive and welcoming. The meal is always hot and tasty. Whether it is an anniversary or a mid week dinner,... More

My first time at Caffe Navona was also a first date (I'm still with the guy). Good food, but not if you are into lighter fare. Very tasty and well done, but heavy. Friendly staff, great also to sit at the bar and enjoy a cocktail.

We had a very enjoyable dinner at Caffe Navona. The strip steak with the onions and garganzola cheese was very good and the steak was prepared as ordered medium rare. Very good heart of palm salad to start.

Came back with wife to have dinner with daughter and boyfriend. Staff always receptive and friendly. The owner Marco is one of the best in the business in making everyone feel personally appreciated for being there and creating a great dining experience. Then there is that damn bread and the balsamic mix on the table. I can't stop eating this... More

Recently dined here for a change of pace. It's best rated, and upscale for the area. Our food was good, but just that. Had a high end Pappardelle Bolognese in a red "gravy" meat sauce, with a fried calamari appetizer. Calamari tasted fresh, but the dipping sauce and outside breading needed seasoning. Pasta was less al dente then I like.... More

Unfortunately ,,,It gives me great pain a saying this about the Navona restaurant, as I have very high regards for the owner, he has worked very hard to build his business, and the food is fantastic, but his personnel are something to be desired. Still ,,,unbeknownst to myself, I still do not have no reason why I was escorted out... More

We arrived a little before 11:30 AM and although not yet officially open, the host graciously seated us, let us order drinks and brought bread. Everyone's meal was excellent, as were the desserts. The service was attentive, but not overbearing. This restaurant is a gem that deserves more patrons at lunch. We were the only guests, until about 12:45 PM.... More
