Many thanks to Silvino and company for hosting our recent private event. Ilda, Tony and the rest of the staff did a wonderful job and made it a very special occasion. A little background here; I have been going to this restaurant for the last 27 years and it has consistently ranked among my favorites. There is, as others have... More

Nova Europe has been around for a number of years as a fixture in the Kemp Mill section of Silver Spring. It serves fairly undistinguished Mediterranean cuisine - seafood, veal, pasta, poultry etc to a mostly senior clientele. To entice this demographic it offers coupon deals and a $19 early bird until 6:30PM including appetizer, entree and desert. Our party... More

Nova Europa is an wonderful restaurant, filled with old-world European charm, a professional staff and incredibly delicious food chosen from an extensive menu! We held a dinner party for 10 there for graduation celebration and from my first phone call to make inquiries and reservations to the service we received while dining there, we could not have been treated better....

Moved to Silver Spring almost 4 years ago. Always walked by the restaurant but never took time to look at the posted menu...This last Sunday when my wife stopped and was curious to some of the menu items. We set a date to dine here and let me say...We were NOT disappointed. The atmosphere takes you back to a time... More

This is a restaurant that we keep returning to - and everyone we bring there with us also adores it and wants to return. Their Early Bird Special is a remarkable bargain - not only because of its price but also because of the delicious food they serve. The Early Bird Special includes an Appetizer; wonderful rolls that seem to... More

This review is a bit delayed (because I only joined Trip Advisor a short time ago). I was here in mid 2013, on a visit from New Zealand, and had a party of six with me. I used to live in Maryland, a decade ago, and often ate here -- so we ate here at my suggestion. I was a... More

My husband and I chose to celebrate our anniversary at Nova Europa based on the reviews, which did not let us down.The food was fantastic; the menu had such a great selection that we had trouble deciding what to order. The best part about this place is the service. I found a coupon on their website and when I asked... More

We're in our 40's and frequently the youngest ones in there. But the food and service are top-notch, so just ignore the 70's decor and enjoy. I know it's not PC, but the veal is phenomenal. We also like the Caldeiraida Nova Europa, a light and tasty seafood stew filled with proteins. Check out the daily specials, often yummy -... More
