This place is small and packed. You definitely need reservations in season. The food was very good from start to finish - swordfish with shrimp and pasta, and angel hair pasta with lobster, shrimp and scallops. Desserts were also very good - tiramusu and chocolate cake. The service, on the hand, left a lot to be desired - not polished... More

This is a very small restaurant - only 9 tables - so make reservations. The food is excellent as is the service. We both had salads which were fresh and light. My husband had the schrod which was prepared almost like a chicken piccata and came with an asparagus risotto which was very nice. My husband ate every bite. I... More

Norabella, as everyone who has reviewed has said, is indeed quite quite small. It is what makes it so desirable I think - the fact that you can't eat there whenever the mood strikes. Our group of 4 each had a different item on the menu, with everyone happy with their meal. Not raving, over the top happy, but satisfied.... More

As other reviewers have stated, this is a very small restaurant with normally above average food and service, Not the night my wife and I decided to have dinner there, however. First, upon entering the waitress snarled at us asking if we had reservations. We did, and were seated next to the empty booth which ultimately was filled. Only one... More

Norabella is a treat, a treat you should indulge in. A small 9 table cozy place which surprisingly uses the space so well you totally forget you are in a small cottage type building. We had an early reservation so the pleasant waitstaff was devoted to us, without hovering over us. The eggplant first course was stuffed with spinach and... More

Food very good....I had the Veal Milanese and was very good...... Seating is very cramped, so you get to know your dining neighbors .... The restaurant needs a serious cleaning

It looks like nothing much from the street, but walk inside and you find yourself in a tiny cottage of a restaurant: quiet, simple, homey. The lone waitress works hard, but, with only seating for about 16 people altogether, her job is at least possible, and she does a great job of keeping up. The food is simply divine. My... More

After reading the amazing reviews on TripAdvisor, we went in to Norabella with high expectations. Having just returned from Italy, we were ready for some authentic cuisine. Unfortunately, we were disappointed from the start. The menu was not "Italian" Italian, but rather, Italian American. The bread was stale. We both ordered a special, neither of which was anything special. Overcooked... More
