Food definitely five stars. My wife's scallop starter and haddock risotto main were astoundingly good. Other dishes weren't quite as historic but still very, very good. Ambience was poor. It's just a concrete shell with a small number of decorations and cheap furniture. Service was good, but slow. Unlike some of the reviewers who gave it a "terrible" rating based... More

We are there on Saturday. This is by far the best restaurant in Lytham. The food and service is 5 star. I can't rate this highly enough.

Having lived on the Fylde Coast all my life I despair at the lack of quality eating opportunities. Novello is the exception and never fails to excel. We recently decided to take 26 friends out to celebrate my birthday and there was only ever one choice of destination. We took over Novello for a Sunday afternoon. The food was, as... More

Never disappoints, had a lovely meal for my birthday. The venison was beautifully tender as was my wife's veal. Service was attentive and friendly. Looking forward to coming back.

After two disappointing reviews recently I decided to try Novello's in Lytham. We managed at late notice to book a table for two. Well where to start. The waiter and waitress were very busy but never failed in their duties to keep us informed and attend to our needs regarding drinks and orders. The manager was always around making sure... More

We're new to the area, so searched on Tripadvisor for recommendation for lunch. This restaurant came out top along with great testimonials. So I phoned to book. The person who answered seemed surprised I wanted to book for Sunday lunch. We arrived at the restaurant, and discovered why he was surprised. It was empty - we were the only customers... More

We are very sorry that you felt you had a bad experience at our restaurant. We would like to point out that the restaurant wasn't empty as you claim and we feel that a 3-course meal for 2 people for under 50 pounds is extremely reasonable. Please bear in mind that we are a restaurant who make everything from scratch... More
