I eat at Denova's several times a month and was only disappointed once in many visits. Service can vary but there is a core of servers who have been there a while and they do a great job. Pizza and pasta dishes are always great. Breakfast specials are good and my only complaint is their "no substitutions" rule.

While not the best Italian food in the area still a very nice family restaurant with your staple Italian dishes. Good pizza, salads and soups. I got take out and while I waited I sat at the bar. The bar has two craft breweries on tap and a good selection of bottled brews. The staff that I encountered is very... More

My soup was good and her soup according to her, was awful. I tried it and it really had no taste. Her salad had no taste either. The chicken was very... More

Excellent value, casual dining but very good! 6 adults and 3 little kids and they were very accommodating. Most of the group got the crab cake special and said it was the best they've had so far in Maryland. Definitely recommend for those who want to get away from the craziness of Ocean City. Food much better too.

On the recommendation from a friend on where we could take 10 people on a Saturday night in August in Ocean City for crab cakes we ended up at this little Italian Restaurant that seemed more of a pizza and sub joint from the look of it. But Saturday at Denovo's offers a crab cake dinner special and what a... More

We ordered carry on from Denovo's and it did not disappoint. The pizza was delicious with fresh toppings. We also ordered a mozzarella salad which was also to die for. To finish we had a slice of the dark side of the moon and coconut cream pie! Both were great! We would definitely order from here again!

Denovo's Trattoria is a great little Italian restaurant tucked away in Ocean Pines. We have been vacationing to the area for well over 20 years now and Denovo's has become one of our must order from places. I do not recall ever ordering anything that I felt was less than wonderful. If you choose to dine out elsewhere, you should... More
