I visit this establishment because you could sit outside and half of the tables were occupied, which I think is a good sign. We've ordered rice balls to start and a four cheese pizza as a main. All was well prepared and properly seized. However,...More

This was my first visit to Novella. The waitstaff was very attentive to our needs. The food (jumbo shrimp with spicy sauce, chicken marsala, ravioli, and lasagna) was FABULOUS!! My family and I highly recommend this restaurant.

This was one of my favorite meals that I had in New York City on my recent trip. The service could use a bit of help, but overall, I was VERY pleased. I got the bolognese with linguini noodles and it was divine!

Little Italy
While Little Italy is one of the city's smallest
neighbourhoods, its streets are packed with visitors
from around the globe, especially on summer weekends
when the streets are closed to traffic. Stroll up
Mulberry Street, the heart of Little Italy, for a
dense mix of Italian restaurants with sidewalk tables,
cafes, and old-school food shops. Don’t be surprised
when the hosts beckon you to pay them a visit. Stop in
