Great pizza

This place sits right in the harbor and is a great atmosphere. Pizza is not overpriced and their homemade marinara is to die for. The garlic roles are complimentary and this is likely the best brick oven place in town.

20 members of my extended family gathered for a reunion and went to Pizza Nova for dinner. I shared a gorgon zola salad and goat cheese pizza with my wife. Good food. Enjoyed it. But the server made it next to impossible to sort out the bill. A real jerk of an attitude. From the bill I think they charged... More

We love pizza and this place doesn't disappoint! We shared a "greek" salad that was excellent and more than enough for two of us. We also shared a pizza and had a hard time choosing from the large selection. Will go back again.

it was very convenient to the motel, almost around the corner.The had the absolute best pizza and we are not usually pizza eaters. When we saw their garlic bread we also fell for that! Yumm! The staff was very friendly and the price reasonable.

The food choices at the airport are limited so we stopped here. We will definitely be back again. I had the Mary Lou chicken salad and my husband had the meatball sandwich which he really enjoyed. The wait service was a little slow but we were there mid afternoon so they may have been prepping for the dinner rush. Great... More

The drinks and service were excellent. We enjoyed sitting out in the enclosed patio. My wife's food was very good but my "famous lasagna" wasn't very lasagna-like, to my experience. However, that said, it was a pasta dish that had very good flat noodles and a really good red sauce. We would definitely go back, though.

loved the pizza, the pasta, the garlic bread (complimentary), the kids meal choices and the beautiful harbour views. Seriously you would pay a fortune for this combination in any other city!

If you haven't been here, I strongly recommend you do. My favorite pizza here is the Portobello and pancetta. However, I have enjoyed several and they've all been wonderful. As well as the appetizers and their house salad. It doesn't get any better than having pizza delivered to your boat either.

We enjoyed the luncheon special of pizza and salad. One night we went for dinner and my husband had the gluten free pizza. The food was served hot and was seasoned appropriately. We passed on the garlic knots as the garlic was overpowering. The views onto the harbor were also enjoyable. Overall atmosphere was pleasant thought somewhat noisy.
