Great food and service! Loved everything about this place!
Before the pandemic we went often to Novita Always a good choice.
This was a return. It was delicious and the outside dining situation made us feel safe and well taken care of. We will be back.
Food is excellent. Service was rude. We were seated at a table too small for our group but host told us we weren’t regulars so we weren’t getting a good table. (Now we’ll never be regulars.)
Novitá never disappoints! Fantastic food and unmatched service, truly a neighborhood gem.
Food and service at Novita never disappoints. Once again another outstanding dining experience.
We really like this restaurant. The food was very tasty, and the service is very good.
Amazing food, incredible service. Igloos for safety and privacy. Wonderful experience!
One of the best Italians in NYC. Perfect ambience inside or out. Wonderful staff. Amazing menu. The stuffed zucchini flowers are quite special as is the home made pasta. You will want to go back several times so you can sample more of their delicious menu.
An old New York ambience , with a wonderful intimacy, and one of the sweetest , most personable staff manning the place.... god bless them for weathering the storm, and staying open for the lion share of the pandemic shutdown.
We had such a great meal last week at Novita. It truly felt like we were sitting at a table in Italy! The food, service and ambiance were incredible. It was my father-in-law's birthday and my family enjoyed a wonderful celebration. Highly recommend Novita! We will be back soon!!
Sophisticated calming and with lots of truly Italian ( modern northern Italian ) touches. I’d go back in a heartbeat
Love this place
Another lovely dinner with friends at Novitá. We are continuously impressed by their great service, outstanding food and friendly atmosphere.
We go here twice a year for birthdays and it is always amazing!
Had to wait a bit for our reservation but they more than made up for it. Great food and service.
Amazing as usual, best service, food & ambiance in NYC
Food was amazing. Outside setup is great. Such an enjoyable restaurant, and service is perfect.
A very welcoming restaurant. The service was attentive. The food is excellent. Terrific pasta dishes. It's quiet, sophisticated, and civilized. Highly recommended.
Everything was just delicious and the service was excellent. They brought us extra desserts and waiter was so patient with me selecting a wine after returning 3 bottles that we didn’t like!!
Excellent lunch with quick friendly service
Excellent food and service.
Great outdoor space. Excellent service. Delicious food.
We’ll be back soon for sure.
Ate outside in one of the plexiglass huts - well designed with reasonable amount of fresh air and lots of light. Food great as usual and good service despite the challenges of serving outdoor diners. Strongly recommend.
The food, ambiance and staff are outstanding. We truly enjoyed our evening at this restaurant Everyone loved the beef carpaccio with black truffles and the parmesan veal chop. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable.
Very good food, more on the pricier side but totally worth it
We have been to Novita many times. Of course with Covid it’s been over a year. The Staff is friendly and informative the food delicious whether pasta, meat or fish.We ate inside which was very comfortable.
The Vibe is Italian so much so we felt we were in Napoli!
The food was fantastic and the outdoor igloo areas were perfect for safe dining. Our waiter was super kind, polite and helpful but our service was so slow! Our rez was for 8:30pm and we didn't leave until 11:30pm. Online it said rez would be for two hours max and this extra hour late caused one of us to miss the last PATH home and another one of us issues because they had to work the next day at 9am. It was frustrating bc if not for that, this would be a 5-star rating. Our waiter should have been checking on us more frequently.
Excellent. Maitre de was very understanding and flexible with my date.
Excellent across the board
Lovely experience! Great service, food and ambience. Would return!
Gennaro our waiter was a rockstar.
We had a wonderful dinner at Novita on Saturday night. The staff was very welcoming and they even treated us to dessert! The food is incredible. We can’t wait to go back!
Absolutely one of our favorite places in NYC - food and service outstanding, even during Covid
One of the best Italians in the city. Great for a special occasion, a business dinner or just a nice night out. The service and ambiance along with the food are spectacular.
Wonderful, luxurious lunch with friends in a tent outside. Service was wonderful and european polite. All my guests were happy. The wine was perfect too.
Incredible staff and delicious pasta.
They’re always an amazing experience. It’s our favorite place.
such a great, safe outdoor setup! food delicious and staff so nice.
I love this place. Food and service are delicious and warm. Like being in Italy! Bravo Novita!
