I visited the restaurant casually one evening in April - two of us seeking a quick meal. Great reception on what was a quiet night, quick service with menus and drinks. Wait staff were knowledgable about wines and the menu. We ordered and had our meals delivered without any undue delay and very professionally. The only glitch - and it was not a major - was with one of the deserts which had not presented well. In every other respect the food was excellent, beautiful flavours, quantity perfect, and well presented. Pricing was competitive and proved excellent value for money. Recommended.

We went there on a busy night. we had to wait 45 min to be served, as some other people who arrived after us, got their meal much before us.
The food was ok, nothing special but expensive.
The staff wasn't really good.
Been in the Food industry, I just think that Nuvolari need to improve their services.
I won't be back.

Service was very good, upstairs room incredibly hot. Zuppa de pesce and spagetti marinara had the same under flavoured "red sauce", clearly made in a vat and used in most dishes. Not good at all.

Loved this place. The food was excellent, not expensive. The staff were very attentive and a lovely girl from Hertfordshire looked after us. The garlic bread was fab. Had a shared pud too which was lovely.

On a busy Easter Saturday night, we sat and had a meal here and wow, soooo good! Both meals exceeded expectation and with friendly staff, we were impressed... One of our meals was the Snapper and the other Scallops..
Very nice.... Thank you...
