On arrival we were seated at a table in a corridor next to the kitchen and near the toilet. We asked for another table and were seated in a gloomy corner of the restaurant. My partner had a view into the main dining area while I looked into a dark wall 2 meters away. We both enjoyed oysters for entree,... More

Hello and thank you for taking the time to review Novaro's Restaurant. I am sorry you did not appreciate being moved on Saturday evening to the main dining room after making your reservation after 5:30pm on a busy night. We arrange the seating in the restaurant according to when our customers book the table. We acknowledged you were not happy... More

Went there with some friends. We go to Launceston about once per yaer. The food here is very good and the wine list good and reasonably priced. Try the seafood pasta - that got the biggest tick . Very cosy place

A really welcome and delightful change from the usual Aussie/Tassie experiences. Fantastic meal for a party of 7 served in an unassuming house in town Small, intimate, served by the owners. Fantastic fresh food, and a pleasure to eat in. Price wise was pretty much the same as most other inferior establishments. Thank you for a lovely evening, and making... More

So pleased to see this restaurant in the top 5. Had some really lovely nights here with 2 or 10 people. Love the snails, outstanding wine list, exceptional service that is personal but not overbearing. A Launceston must-do, really love it.

Spending any time in Launceston this restaurant is simply a must do on your list. The food was beautiful, I had the snails and the duck and my partner had scallops and risotto, we were very tempted by the dessert menu but were simply too full to take advantage of it. The wine selection was very good and staff were... More

We ate at Novaro's on the last night of our trip to Launceston. The food was absolutely divine and perfectly cooked. It is a little on the pricy side with $118 feeding 2 people a main and a desert. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed with light jazz music in the background and a very friendly and knowledgable staff who... More

My wife and I took our 18 year-old to Novaro's for her birthday, hoping to treat her to a memorable dining experience. It certainly didn't disappoint. Outstanding service, an amazing wine list and beautiful food made for a great evening. Between us we had two entrees and three mains, plus drinks, for a little over $200, which represented great value... More

They really do serve good food here. I thought that it was good value, even at 100 dollars a head Inevitably food at this quality will cost you more, the pertinent question is "does it offer good value for money" and in my opinion it did. It was all very good, and my wife's crime brûlée was exceptional. The only... More

As in a number of years, my wife and I dined at Novaro's for our wedding anniversary. As we had visited for a meal not long ago, I thought I knew what I was going to order. Then the lovely Sara told us the specials! made it more difficult to choose. In the end we went for the specials as... More
