You go to Norabella's for the food, plain and simple. It is excellent, fresh, prepared to order (you can watch the chef through the little window to the kitchen). I have been several times and the food is consistently good - notably the veal chop stuffed with taleggio cheese, but really any pasta as well. It is also tiny -... More

Norabellla is a delightful small , intimate Italian restaurant that never disappoints. It is chef owned, has maintained consistently high quality and although said chef is not Italian, I asked if my Italian mother was in the kitchen, its that good. Try the veal chop, the seafood scampi, or the bolognese, really anything on the menu is great. Make a... More

We went to Norabella with some friends for dinner and had a great meal. Everything was really fresh tasting and well presented. Our waitress was very pleasant and because the restaurant is so small and intimate we found ourselves discussing our dinners with people at our surrounding tables and giving suggestions as to what to order. It was a snowy... More

We have been to Norabella many, many times, but last Sat. night it was even more special. My three favorite appetizers (in the world) are egg plant rollatini, ricotta gnocchi, and polenta. Norabella has all of them and done to perfection. I don't believe I have been to another restaurant that has all three on the menu. We split the... More

Haven't been in for a few months and I was craving the best veal chop on the Cape. Instead I had the seafood and was not disappointed in the recommendation from our server. The wife and I went with a close friend for dinner on a Saturday night. We arrived a little early for our 7:30 reservation but we seated... More

Dined here for a birthday celebration and was not disappointed. The veal dishes ( veal chop and veal milanese ) that we had were excellent, and they have a nice selection of appetizers and desserts along with an ample wine list. The American beauty roses on the tables added a romantic touch. It's a small room, so if you go... More

After hearing how wonderful this little restaurant is and I do we mean little, I made reservations for my birthday. Our waitress seemed a little flustered, did not know what the specials were but was friendly enough you didn't mind. My friends and I all had appetizers which were good they ordered the specials and I ordered the pollo melanzana.... More
