Nice little surprise

The setting is perfect for eating street side and the food was very good. Started with the calamari, which was calamari... Nothing that's going to blow you away but good. Tried the tuna for an entree, presentation was impressive and the sides were delicious but the fish itself was a bit overdone... read more

Pricey, but we really wanted some seafood pasta. I HIGHLY recommend the mussels, they are delicious. Good food, poor service (the place seemed a little understaffed for a Friday night). A glass of wine will set you back about $12 and a typical pasta dish is about $25-30, but those prices aren't unheard of on Espanola Way. I enjoyed it!... More

Stopped for dinner on a busy night. The service was good but a little disjointed (didn't get bread until the food was out, but it worked out ok). Our dinners were very tasty. However the Key Lime Pie we had for dessert was outstanding. That made the entire meal memorable. Next time we are in town we might just go... More

We visited Espanola Way last night and picked Nuvo for dinner after looking at the menu. Loved the warm bread and olive oil & balsamic to start. For main We both had pasta and it was delicious - perfectly cooked (al dente), with fresh seafood and delicious sauces. Staff were friendly, drinks were good and service was quick. Removed one...

The best lobster bisque my 73 yo mother said she's ever had. Order it every time we get over to Espaniola.

Enjoyed the evening as walk ins. Though packed, only had to wait 10 minutes for a table and took the waiters recommendation of the lobster platter for two being a mixture of many of their dishes. The lobster risotto was nice, flavorsome and creamy, the rice well cooked. The lobster I thought had had too long in the pot but... More

I am giving a star because the first time I ate there tonight was wonderful. Our waiter was great and the food tasty. The lobster really good, the ceviche over priced for what you get. The reason I will never return was my second visit in the same night. My husband and I ate here for my birthday. We had... More

My daughter and I ate dinner here one night. We had a sidewalk table, which was great. The restaurant is located on a street that is pedestrian-only so the people watching was great!
