This was perhaps some of the most amazing Italian food I have ever experienced, everything was fresh, homemade and an all around delight dining experience!

When I first pulled into the parking area, I got a sharp elbow to the ribs from my wife. The place looked suspect but "wow"! Clean, table cloths and napkins and the hostess was very helpful. My wife had the sole picatta, my choice was the spinach lasagna. This place is owner/chef managed. Do not escape life by not eating... More

This little restaurant challenges the best of Boston's North End Italian eateries. Small, intimate , great service, connection with the owner/chef. The best eating experience on the Cape. Make a reservation. Only 10 tables and the word is out.

I took my parents to Norabella for their anniversary on a busy Saturday night. There are only 9 or 10 tables, as other reviewers have mentioned, which makes for a cozy atmosphere. While clearly tiny, the restaurant is set up so that you never feel like you're intruding on your neighbor's conversation or unable to move for fear of elbowing... More

Had a great meal with my wife. As always great food and great service. We have been coming here for years, but I am new tripadvisor. We have had a great party there for my aunts 90th birthday. They did a wonderful job.

The Italian food here was uneven. My onion mushroom soup wasn't hot and only fair tasting. The chicken saltimbocca special was fine but again nothing to write home about. My husband liked his meal. There are very few tables so we had to wait despite reservations. Parking is challenging. Our server was friendly and attentive.

My husband took me to Nora Bella to celebrate my 55th birthday and we had a wonderful evening. I had been once before, but he had never been. The service was excellent. Very friendly from the time we stepped in the door until the time we left. Considering there was only one waitress on that evening and all the tables... More

The restaurant is small so reservations are required. The wine list has a nice modestly priced selection. The gnocchi and polenta appetizers were excellent.. The entrees were quite good. The risotto was excellent. Both of the veal chop dishes - one on the regular menu and one special - were large and very tasty. Both the chocolate cake and the... More

Recommended by a couple we met at the golf course. Made a 6:30 reservation, arrived on time and got our choice of tables. Got a great bottle of cabernet savigoun, 2 salads, veal chop, spinach lasagna, and a yummy choc cake dessert. Would have paid @ $175, without tip, at a "fancy" restaurant...wish it was closer to home.Loved it!
