Wonderful favors, nice portions and a terrific staff that takes good care of you. We've recently had dinner in the lovely bar with staff that now... More

Please, do not waste your money here!!! During our dinner, the waitress came over and told us we had to move to the bar. Confused, since we had only been there for 1hr, already had spent $100+ on our meal, drinks and were considering dessert, thought it was a mistake. Then the manager came over and told us we had...

One couldn't eat his meal as it was too spicy - same meal as the one who got sick. Waitress spilled the wine, servers didn't know who got what... More

We had a group of 40 ladies dine at Nuova Italia on a Wednesday evening. I cannot tell you how fantastic this place is! Two waiters served us with exceptional poise and professionalism.
