We have been going to Nuvolaris for over 10 years. We have never had a bad meal. The atmosphere is perfect for a pleasant dinner. No loud music and noise level is low enough to actually carry on a conversation without going hoarse. The appetizer of oyster and cheese with spinach can't be beat. Steak, veal, and fish always served... More

Cute location in old mandeville. This restaurant has a good bar and wine selection and neat atmosphere. The food is pretty good. Its a great place for a date or a few couples away from the kids.

The food was delicious and the atmosphere is really nice. The dim lights and beautiful brickwork make the dining space super romantic. The dinner portion of the ravioli of the day was a bit small and might be better described as a small plate. The marsala portion was huge! So I guess it varies a bit across the dinner menu.... More

Nuvolari's is our go to when we are not sure where to go. They offer a variety of Italian, seafood, and steaks. Good atmosphere with good drinks. Priced mid-range. We went on a Monday night, when most restaurants were closed. When ever we are not sure of where to take a guest, we find Nuvolari's does well. Good for visiting... More

I recently moved to the area and Nuvo's has quickly become one of my favorite spots. Wally makes a mean martini and everything I've had so far has been very good. I've stuck mostly to seafood so thats why I can speak to but nothing but great so far!

I took my wife here tonight and everything was wonderful. There is not dress code. The portions are a good size and flavorful. I ordered the char grilled fish and my wife had the salmon. Both meals were phenomenal. We finished our meals with peppermint ice cream which was also very good. Definite must eat!

In January of 1982 after establishing Jacmel Inn, a fine dining restaurant, and Brady’s Grill and Bar in Hammond, Hoot Owl owners Paul Murphy and Rick Colucci along with Mandeville native Wallace Simmons took over the lease of the former Prieto Dry Goods store on Girod street in Mandeville. Paul, Rick and Wallace completely remodeled the interior on their own with a vision to bring a classical New York style dining room to the quiet North Shore town. The extensive remodeling was an example of keeping the unique New Orleans style structure outside intact while creating a rich restaurant experience inside. Upon entering the foyer of Nuvolari's, you can tell that a unique restaurant lies before you. Rich hues of wood and soft lighting create an aura of sophistication that relaxes patrons and prepares them for a wonderful dining experience. This one of a kind architecture, consistently superb cuisine and wonderful staff make Nuvolari's a true dining experience!
