The brunch menu offered the traditional brunch options plus pasta and salad dishes. I had a delicious Arrugula salad as an appetizer and a very tasty pasta dish. There are unlimited Bloody Mary's and Mimosa's. The service was attentive and helpful.

My party of 4 enjoyed our Friday night at Novita. We arrived earlier so we waited at the bar area. The female bartender was very helpful and patient while we sampled and decided on a wine. Our table was ready on time and waitress was perfect; no too much attention and not lacking either. Very loud atmosphere so at times you feel like you're yelling but overall a good restaurant choice.

I went to Novita for an early New Year's Eve dinner with my husband and son.
We had a nice table in the front of the restaurant. I do like that their is a kids menu.
My son loves the pizza. Service was good and we weren't rushed.
The food is pricy and but very good. Nicely presented. Being that it was a holiday, I was glad it was the regular menu with daily specials. They have an extensive wine list.
I would of like the restaurant to look more festive for New Year's Eve.

We weren't offered the lounge area where drinks are a different price. When I tried to order the Happy Hour wine , they said no because I was seated in lounge area. They should have told me that or gave it as an option. Place was quiet that day. It was early. Didn't appreciate this at all. They also claim to be a wine bar but do not serve their wine in the right glasses. For wine connoisseurs, the glasses make a difference. They have some pricey wines there so I would think they would know wine glasses do matter.

It was just OK. Nothing special , I actually hated it but my boyfriend enjoyed it so it could be just me. The pancetta on my pizza and Italian nachos where way over cooked and dry, my sangria was too sweet, and my food took 50 minutes to come out.

super loud and food was decent but not great. would recommend for a large gathering of friends celebrating a birthday but you can hardly have a conversation in there otherwise.

First time to this restaurant and my wife and I had a super meal. The service was outstanding and the food plentiful and tasteful. I would definitely recommend the pastas, as they were freshly made. Overall, we will definitely come back. Also excellent wine list at reasonable prices

Novita never disappoints! They have a great price fixe menu option which has been revised since the last time we dined. The price has increased slightly for the three course price fixe but the selections have also expanded to give more appetizer and dessert options and the entree choices now include meat and fish dishes. I loved the roasted asparagus appetizer -two stalks wrapped in pancetta with ricotta and Spanish almonds. It was delicious! Great value for a delicious meal.

For the price the food was not good at all. The calamari wasn't good at all and main entree although tender just had a blah taste. Atmosphere was nice place was packed.

My friends and I got together for my birthday brunch. We all thought the food was excellent and what you got for the price was great! We will definitely be back for brunch.

Half off wine night on wednesday, it was a lot of fun, and great food! I had the black fettuccine with octopus, which was delicious.

Great wine list and good food. Busy but can still get a reservation on a Sat. night.

My wife and I had a great time at Novita. We were seated right away, water and bread showed up almost immediately. the wait staff was very nice including our waitress, even when I decided to change my entree. We ordered the Lobster rolls and a pizza for appetizer, which is a lot so we ordered one entree and split it. The entree came out on two separate dishes and both looked amazing. They actually took the time to make each dish look exactly the same. Very nice touch. Love this place definitely going back. PS, I gave their food 4 stars because my wife is a chef and I get amazing meals at home so our expectations are very high. I usually don't give 4 stars.

I had dinnner at Novita with my husband and son. I had requested a table away from the bar area, which tend to get noisy. We were seated in the front of restaurant, which was nice and quiet. We had wanted a bottle of wine but the list is very extensive so went with one of the waiter's suggestion.
The food was very good . We had mussels with crispy artichokes. I had salmon, and my husband had a special pasta dish with steak. My son is a fussy eater but enjoyed the individual size pizza.
It is a little expensive for dinner but nice for a special occasion.
Fun place for happy hour and nice bar menu.

We were a little disappointed. We expected a more upscale dining experience. It had a club vibe with thumping music. The service was "meh." The waitress seemed somewhat annoyed by our party of seven. The food was good though....nothing special, just good.
