A very good restaurant in a shopping center

This restaurant is old world and waiters are very formal. I liked the food, the specials for early dinners are the best deal, include, appetizer, coffee and dessert. I recommend the Veal Marsala, and the steak dishes are excellent too. I would go there again. Free parking and easy access from 410.

Nova Europa is our neighborhood restaurant so we have been dining there for years and the food is always excellent. My favorite dishes are the Chicken Portuguese and the Steak Portuguese. Both have excellent flavors. My husband recently tried the lamb chops with rosemary and again raved about his dish. I don't think you can go wrong with anything on... More

This old-style European restaurant is a neighborhood classic, a throwback in all the good ways. The food is continental, with several Portuguese items as well as some Italian and French ones. It's the kind of place where the side salad, which comes with entrees, is served with the dressing in a little silver boat on the side. We have enjoyed... More

I love this restauant! My family and I have eaten here for so many years. The food is fabulous and the service is great. Wonderful place for any occasion. I usually order the escargot for an appetizer and the filet for my main course. All the desserts are great! I've tried the crime brûlée, the flan, cannoli, they even have... More

This restaurant is really as the name implies, European. They offer both some Portuguese favorites as well as Northern Italian cuisine. We were there with a group of 11 (with reservations). The restaurant was busy at the time. We tried a bunch of different dishes from veal Parmesan, to mussels, to Portuguese steak and chicken and more. We had a... More

We having been going to Nova Europa for at least the past 15 years. Recently, we went there for Mother's Day. My memory certainly served me right that the food and service here is excellent. The Seafood Provencal and Crab Stuffed Mushrooms were made to perfection. As a side note: the warm bread is great, but the salad nothing spectacular.

We tried this restaurant because it was in the coupon book. It is certainly a lovely looking room with great waiters. I have no idea what Portuguese food is supposed to be, we thought it was an Italian restaurant. Our food was good but not outstanding. conventional salad with a delicious dressing. There is little if any choice for vegan/vegetarians... More

We eat at Nova Europa every few months. One visit last year, we took our son & his family Incl two little boys -5 & 7. The waiter was wonderful with them. Brought them them soup & bread while we waited for our entrees.
