To preface, my family and I frequent Novita quite often for brunch and dinner. Today’s experience was by far a disappointment based on the service (or lack there of). Firstly, we sat down at the table and were not provided with utensils. Our waiter was missing in action for majority of our meal - to the point that we had to flag down the waitress of a nearby table to get a set of utensils, and at which point she was nice enough to also bring us over another round of drinks. Our waiter not once came over to ask how our appetizer or main course was, and further rushed us out the door without even offering coffee or dessert. Unfortunately, this experience will force my family and I to reconsider when booking future meals at Novita.
Novita Wine Bar was a great choice for Restaurant Week. The service was so kind and the food was outstanding. I can't wait to go back to try out more of their huge selection!
We were disappointed with the food. We all went for restaurant week. We each got a different dish and shared. So, 4 of us sampled each dish. Best appetizer was the stuffed clams. The asparagus was OK. The meatball was bready. Best main dish was the branzino but it had a fradiavolo sauce on it, and the fradiavolo dish was mild. The cavatelle was under done and the veal cutlet/chop was disappointing. Best desert was tiramisu, but I’ve had better.
Unfortunately, we wouldn’t go back.
Food and service excellent. A little too noisy and some of the music, not all, not really conducive to a calm meal. But not terrible.

The food is good the place is very loud.
There are no table cloths it's like a large cafeteria. The wine list starts at $48 a bottle and goes up. A glass of wine starts at $12 and goes up.
We sat at the bar and had a lovely evening...a bit warm in the restaurant and noise level a bit high but we will be back!!!
Novita never disappoints - loved the fact that they offer panini/salad/soup lunch specials.
Choice of entrees was great service was quick with friendly waiter and support
Food is great but small portions and very expensive
Food was amazing, the staff very attentive and the ambiance is lively.
Good service and excellent food.
Nothing not to like
Great food , ambiance and service
Second visit in Oct. first was exceptional and service and food the best. Very attentive waiter at all times.
Second visit this past Saturday had good service but both my wife’s pasta dish and mine had overcooked meatballs and sausage. Other guests had great meal.
Will return for best service and other dishes
Great place good food! Very knowledgeable waiter!
Excellent food and service!
Fake Italian food. The chicken parmigiana was thick and chewy.
The margarita pizza was not margarita pizza!
The cavatelli sausage dish was actually dry pasta.
Will never go back!
Fun restaurant with good service, great wine selections and good food. Great for date night or dinner with friends.
Great local place, good food (a little pricey) and wine list
My first time here. Loved the fact that I arrived first and they sat me before my husband ( who got stuck with his car) arrived.
Wait staff was amazing ..... Loved the white wine sangria!
Loved all the food we ordered ..... except the baked stuffed clams.
Can’t wait to come back and try the coconut martini 🍸
Was ok. Ambiance was not what I expected. It was a little pricey for the serving size.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner..... The Service was wonderful from start to finish!!!! Went early so it wasn't too busy or noisy.... Great Neighborhood find!
First off, nice, broad wine list with a large by-the-glass selection. 6 ounce pours priced at $10 and up.
Had the spinach and artichoke dip to start. Served above a Sterno burner and with tasty house-made potato chips. It was excellent, especially with the Parmesan cheese on top to add the perfect nuttiness. We had two pastas for main course, a tagliatelle with sausage and rigatoni with vodka sauce. Reasonably sized and very flavorful! High top seating for more casual times and watching sports and the other half of the restaurant was sit-down style.
Food was delicious, service outstanding
I found the service to be rather unprofessional for the price and location.
My group of friends go every Thursday for happy hour, we love it!
Great food, great service, great ambiance
Food reasonable wine very expensive
Everyone was impressed and we were so surprised that we never went there before now! We all plan on bringing our families in the near future!!
Definitely one of my top favorite places! I enjoy the vibe every time I visit. The restaurant was very busy during my last visit so I could tell our waiter was a bit flustered but he was extremely attentive and ensured to get us everything we asked for in a timely manner. The food was absolutely delicious, as per usual! I very much enjoyed my chilled glass of wine and pasta like I intended to. Highly recommend!
Very large menu with lot of choices. love the wine bar aspect as well
Anniversary today so we came to one of our favorite places and of course enjoyed everything! From great martinis to incredible appetizers - Mussels will grilled pineapple was so delicious! The. Excellent pasta with black linguini with seafood for hubby and a new dish with Strozzapreti and eggplant that was bursting with flavor and sweetness of roasted tomatoes! Highly recommend - Great service and romantic little booth for our Anniversary! Usually we are next door at Waterzooi for Anniversary but Novita is another favorite so we went left over right this time!
Had a great lunch with an old friend - Everything was excellent as always! Delicious salad and wine and a special rainbow cookie cannoli cake that was delicious
It was amazing foods amazing atmosphere and service were great!! Have been coming here for years and I introduce it to some friends and they loved it!!
We had amazing service! All three of us did the price fix meal. All three of us left full and very happy with our meals.
Had a business lunch and the service and food was wonderful.
Love the Gluten Free Pizza!!!
This restaurant is one of our favorite and use it every once in a while and we like their food but this time (Labor day Sunday) wasn’t too good. I ordered “baked clams “ was mostly bread stuffing, with chewy/hard chopped clam pieces (only few pieces). The entire I ordered “seafood stew tomato base” and not supposed have any pasta in it but, they put tons of pasta in it so the soup was not in there. I am disappointed.
I have been to Novita many times before but this was .y first brunch experience and I was not disappointed. The portions were generous and everything was delicious. We ate at an "outdoor" table, but the area is somewhat enclosed and so it was a bit hot. We also had some unwanted bees visit our table. Aside from that, the food and service were great, and I would return for brunch again.
Food was off, very bland, disappointing
No need to return, would not recommend brunch
