Very enjoyable experience overall. It was a bit noisy, which made it a little hard to have a quiet conversation, but I would definitely go back.

Novita Wine Bar & Trattoria is a great place to have dinner in Garden City. It's a bit pricey, but everything is pricey (often not just "a bit") in Garden City. We had an antipasto of different salami - very tasty. High quality meat. We each had a pasta dish - all were delicious. One was pappardelle with a lobster and asparagus sauce with truffle oil. Not only very good, but so nicely cooked. It is hard to NOT have the pappardelle overcook, but these were perfect. Another one of us ordered black linguine in a Calabrese sauce of tomato and charred octopus. Also excellent. Again - the pasta was not overcooked. The other two diners (my friends) thought the meal was just outstanding. I am a pretty good cook myself, so I may be doing the place an injustice by saying "only" very good. I would gladly go back to Novita any time. I definitely recommend it.

The food is excellent and the service is always great. It's the perfect spot for a bite to eat without the fuss. I really enjoy the friendly staff and waiters who always suggest the best plates. The wine list is impeccable and the cocktails deliver every time. Love coming to Novita because you always leave satisfied and can't wait to come back again!

Why have we waited this long?
This place pops up on Open Table frequently, yet for some reason we never booked it. My mistake. As someone who enjoys wine and good food, I can say this place delivers on its implied promise to deliver both.
And perhaps most surprisingly for a trendy wine bar/restaurant, Novita actually can be something of a bargain (hence my awarding of 5 stars). The food won't be the best you've ever had -- assuming you've eaten at high-level spots -- but it gives you excellent food, in good quantities, at a fair price.
And our young waiter was excellent.

Great wine list & excellent, tasty original food offerings. Always good & reliable, Novita is a step above other places. It's very good but then some. I would suggest Novita to everyone!!

Overall everything was great. Unfortunately, they sat us at a table 15 minutes before happy hour ended, but we didn't get to order our drinks till after it was over! We literally sat for about 15 minutes without someone coming to our table!

Horrible food and service. Like a mall fast food chain. Wine list was not impressive. Not a place for fine dining. I do not understand the good reviews . The staff knows nothing about the wine bottles on the menu.

I got my favorite dish: the Wild Arugula Salad with grilled chicken. It was spectacular. My mom loved her Chicken Parmigiano. I wanted to bring her to Novita because I get great food with exceptional service.

Sunday early dinner at Novita had its ups and downs. Waitstaff was attentive but "busing" needs improvement. Bread was brought out but only a small dipping saucer for four people. Three of the four of us ordered the same appetizer but the waiter gave the "odd" appetizer to the wrong person. Should have at least asked! Dinner entrees came out while appetizer plates were still on table. We had to rearrange the table before the plates were taken away.
Overall food was good - but staff need training.

Been coming here for a while. Was there on Sunday evening and the place was not full but had to wait a long time for sever to take our order and the steak was over cooked. Just hope this was a one time missed.

be careful i booked for a 1000 point table and after dining they said i didn't show not only did i have to call open table and the restaurant they said they didn't have 1000 point tables which was not true. as far as service happy hour only exists inside we said on patio and were the only 3 outside and we had to pay too dollar for the same drinks and food steps away from us, talk about being penalized for wanting to be outside in a beautiful day....

The place suited our needs. Enjoyable, good food and extensive wine list. We enjoyed the 50% off wine night! My only complaint was that the lights are too dim and it was hard to see the menu...

But they took the plate before we could get the chick pea puree😫
The chicken panini was okay it was very thin sliced
Pieces of grilled chicken
Not a piece of chicken hardly any cheese so basically it was a roll no flavor... The fries... Very good.
I wasn't drinking I was the driver so a chicken sandwich with no chicken for 23? Not great ..,but for my guests well worth the price!

10 of us had a very enjoyable long late evening without being rushed....food was delicious
The food and service was wonderful. Just wished the bread served at the beginning of the dinner was a little bit toasted or even slightly warm. Bread was very cold

I live in Chicago and we were able to visit my MIL for Mother's Day and I found this restaurant on Open Table. It had great reviews and did not disappoint. The buffet was great. Nice choices but not too many that you feel overwhelmed. Food was delicious. May need to come by when we are in town again. The service was attentive. Highly recommend.

Great neighborhood restaurant for foodies who love a varied assortment of wines by the glass. Food is quite good, with nice assortment of appetizers and main courses. Excellent cheeses as well.
