Eating alone is NEVER a problem at Novo Dolce. Tonight my shout out goes to Mark for his great service and friendly demeanor. But all of the staff make me feel welcome. But that's not the only reason I keep going back - naturally, it's the FOOD! Coconut Peanut Curry soup. Need I say more?? If your mouth hasn't already... More

On my first trip, I ordered "Poutine," which is evidently just a fancy name for "gravy fries with bacon and cheese." (They should just call them "delicious.") Second trip, I got the Caesar Salad topped with salmon. Oh. My. Gosh. The only drawback on the second trip was that service was slow. Wait staff is friendly and accommodating, though. This... More

I would rate the food as very good. The service I would rate as average. I was very pleased with our meal. Fresh, original and tasty.

This was our first trip to this restaurant, since at this location. The facility is possibly the most modern, newest, in town. In a very nice, convenient, & easy parking location, surrounded by the newest strip center. The inside is beautiful, with class furniture & fixtures. Our order was mixed up, and the pizzas weren't as envisioned; but very good.... More

What a fresh new taste for Bowling Green! I have been there several times and enjoyed every item I've tried. They always have tasty specials of the day. I love the sliders, the pastas, and the braised Short Ribs are awesome.

My husband and I were traveling to Bowling Green and wanted lunch. We looked a few places up online and chose Novo Dolce. Well, the reviews online were right. This was really good. The food was delicious! I ordered the Sicilian pizza and my husband ordered the Primavera, and both were very, very good. It may have taken a touch... More

We had been wanting to visit as we had heard that the food was well prepared and above average. Well the restaurant is really dark, far to much black for my taste, the music overly loud which causes people to talk really loud so the noise level is unacceptable for a leisurely meal. But the worst part is the place... More

We were looking for a different restaurant & stopped here on a whim. We were so glad we did! The food was excellent. Sam was attentive & friendly. I had the fish & chips ... the fish was perfectly cooked and flavorful. The Lemon Cello cake was almost to die for! We don't usually have dessert but decided to try... More
