“Reliable Neighborhood Italian Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Conveniently located across the street from a church, there's always a nice buzz in La Nuova [at least the half a dozen times I've visited]. Tried the pizza for the first time today [the 4 cheese pizza] and I liked it a lot. The crust was nice and thin [and crispy]. The other times I visited, I've always ordered a pasta dish and was never disappointed. The coffee is nice and strong [can stand up to Starbucks as a main competitor in that mini mall]. Yes, some might find it a tad too pricey; it's not the "best bang for the buck" type of place but the quality and taste of food are worth the premium.

“Some things never change ü”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012 via mobile

Service, antipasto, pasta and pizza remain excellent. Wine selection is too little though.

“Good food but overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

This restaurant serves Italian food as the title implies. They do a fairly good job with the quality of the food but not good enough for the prices they charge. I've eaten much better Italian food for a fraction of the price of this place.
