A another wonderful dining experience. The stock (fume) was seasoned well. A little sea bass would have been nice. Service at the bar was prompt,efficient and friendly. Table service was very timely and alert to our needs.

Went here for a business dinner. The atmosphere is very nice. The service was good.

The entree food is disappointing. It needs a little tlc.
Best thing I ate was the fried calamari... it was cooked correctly and was very good (it was our appetizer)

I had the crab ravioli. (Thinking how could I go wrong)
It was very bland. It could have been awesome (it had lots of lump crabmeat on top) if had had some Parmesan and a little seasoning (salt,pepper, green onion)... but it tasted like plain cheese ravioli with alfredo sauce and a bunch of crabmeat dumped on top.

My husband had the spinach manicotti. (Again thinking how can you go wrong)
The inside was good (needed a little salt).
The red sauce was super thick, extremely acidic, and super sweet.... did not care for this sauce at all.

If they could just adjust their recipes it could be very good. I have been disappointed in the pasta dishes the last 2-3 times..... next time I'll try a steak.

We have been living on the norshore since 1977 and have been coming for years. Nuvolari's is always consistent with great food and great wine but also in changing their menus now and then to keep things interesting. Just amazing quality here.
