Nice European-style Eatery

Even though tucked away in a non-descript neighborhood strip-mall, worth the visit. Very much like a small European restaurant. Food is above average and portions are just right. Restrooms are inadequate and not well kept.

Our seniors group from church uses this restaurant regularly for lunches and early bird when they have an excellent choice of meals. We receive very courteous and attentive service, especially for those with ambulatory problems. Good parking. Cheerful willing servers. We think this is a great value outing.

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....

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
