Just had the most wonderful treat at this outstanding local restaurant. The service is always attentive and basics always terrific. If you like basics the chicken Caprese is an old reliable. But if like to explore, try the pancetta wrapped rabbit special. "Take a walk on the wild side" and you won't be disappointed.

My husband and I dined at Novita with another couple on a recent Saturday evening. As always, this place delivered. I have never had anything other than nice experiences at Novita. From the decor, to the service, to the cocktails and food, they know how to do it right. I don't have a negative to report. My husband and friends... More

I really like their booths which give you a lot of privacy. The service is usually very good; the waiters are knowledgeable and attentive. The wine list is... More

Consistently excellent food accompanies great service. The comfortable setting that mixes mid-century modern and lounge makes virtually everyone comfortable. Lunch, Brunch or Dinner is a sure thing for a relaxed date or a gathering of family or friends.

We dined here with another couple on Saturday night. It was rather quite when we arrived but picked up as the night went on. We opted to sit outside which was nice except for the table size...all the tables were really for 2 so it was VERY cramped. We really didn't have room for much at all, especially considering that...

I probably would take the basement room if you're party will fit in it! It got to be a little noisy at times. The food was a buffet and was very good.i especially liked the French Toast.... More
