DE Novellis

This is a very good family restaurant and draws a steady clientele from the town. It is also a good place to hold gatherings of 8-10 Delicious Italian fare and great service

This Italian Restaurant is a hiden gem in Rocky Hill. The food and service is consistently good. When you are seated you receive a basket of non-descript bread and a dish of olives, roasted pepers and cheese. This is followed by a nice salad, ask for the house dressing. Each table mate had something different and each entre was delicious.

What a wonderful find. Read other reviews on Trip Advisor and was very pleased with the food and service. The minute we walked we experienced an "old world" family atmosphere. With many local families celebrating birthdays we knew we made the right choice. The food was outstanding; large potions. Service was spot on.

My husband and I were in your restaurant last night the prices were so so the service not so good we had to ask for things that we wanted. Dirty dishes were not taken away promptly and were left @ the table. No one ever came back to our table to see if we needed anything else or if everything... More

We went on a Saturday night and luckily called ahead for reservations since it was packed. My son loved his penne a la vodka - it had peas and prosciutto in a delicious tomato cream sauce. He practically licked the plate clean! My husband enjoyed his veal dish and I had the Chicken Enzo which was also very good. The... More

For the second time in a few weeks I've been for the first time to a local institution in Rocky Hill, both being old-fashioned, family-style Italian restaurants. Like the other, you don't come here for the decor, the romantic setting, or anything trendy. And you won't leave hungry. In fact, you'll leave with the next day's lunch (I'm eating it... More
