Trying to find a nice restaurant to have dinner before a movie and decided to try Novita. I was enticed by the extensive wine list so we gave it a try. The setup is very nice and I do like the concept of being able to try different wines. The problem for me was the food as it was bland... More

Great food but even after telling waiter we had to make an appointment, three times I had to get up and look for a waiter to order, get beverages. I, finally made the fourth trip up to locate a person to find the waiter to pay the bill. We enjoyed our lunch but will not return after being ignored!

We went here for a girls night out birthday dinner. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. The meatball sliders were a hit. The mussels with coconut broth were fabulous. The burratta caprese pizza was good but the crust was a bit soggy. The seared tuna was good. The branzino was excellent. The apple dessert and bread pudding were outstanding! The... More

Dined with friends on a Monday evening. The restaurant was quiet, but one friend who had dined here before said it is packed on weekends and quite noisy. We enjoyed a wonderful cheese board as an appetizer. Very good wine list too. Our entrees were all done perfectly and delicious--- especially the pappardelle and sweet lobster pasta entree. Service was... More

Go there early evening for a drink or two and appetizers. Great energy, good food and drink [top shelf]. Two years ago spent New Year's Eve here and it was a wonderful experience with music. Young crowd. Very chic and in.
