One of the best Italian meals I've had in a while. Restaurant has a lot of great character to it as well.

What a pleasant surprise to find an Italian restaurant with great food. I went there based on great reviews on Tripadvisor and have to agree with othe people's comments. I ordered the Pollo Fiorentina - what a treat for the taste buds. Came with a generous salad and the dinner portion was more like 2 meals for me. Many Italian... More

In the former Old Church Inn, Nuova Italia is tucked into a pleasant neighborhood just off Main Street in St. Charles. Valet parking is offered though ample street parking is available. When we arrived on a Saturday evening there seemed to be some confusion regarding our reservation as we weren’t asked for our name or time. But, they soon figured... More

My family of 7 went to Nuova Italia this past Monday to celebrate a birthday. Our experience was absolutely fantastic. Every person in our group loved their "hot" entrees, to the point we were all sharing dishes to see who's tasted better! We could not come up with a consensus - everything was that good! There is a very reasonably... More

My sister and I visited this restaurant based on reviews. We were not disappointed. Everything was wonderfull from the mozzarella appetizer, salad, and main course which was bow tie pasta, big chunks of salmon in vodka sauce. Will definitely visit again

This restaurant is off the beaten path, but it is worth going out of your way for. It was an old church which lends to the rustic decor. The server was charming and funny and service was excellent. The homemade pasta is outstanding, (I had the eight finger Cavatelli special), and the Braciole was very good also. The only negative... More

Went on a weekday for lunch with three friends. The restaurant is located in the "old church" building which has seen several other restaurants. This one is a keeper. The atmosphere is that of an old winery. We were immediately seated and after reviewing the extensive menu, each of us chose different luncheon entrees with a choice of soup or... More

Went there twice so far this summer, had two recommendations from friends. Both times on Thurs. eve and it was pretty quiet, just a few tables occupied. Ordered pizza both times (once we were with our kids) and a small green salad. My pizza 4 "seasons" was really good, nice dough, thins, neapolitan style. Nice tomato sauce too. You can... More

My husband and I enjoyed dinner here. We were pleasantly surprised that there is valet service offered here. Our valet, Ken, was very friendly and made us feel welcomed. The food was delicious! There is a nice variety on the menu. Highly recommend.

We went here after reading all the great reviews and had high expectations. Little did we know that we were in for the shock of our lives! I've never written a review before but this experience had to be shared. Everything that could've gone wrong with a pleasant dining experience did go wrong. Just about the only thing pleasant that...
