Ambience 10/10, food excellent, service a little too professional. We really enjoyed the meal and the dining room is exquisite. These guys are very professional. Our female wait staff were very relaxed and we enjoyed a casual chat. Our male waiter clearly knew his trade and was quintessentially professional.....but this made us a little uncomfortable at times. We have dined... More

Dear Orange, Thank you so much for your review, we appreciate your positive and constructive comments. You caught our new waiter on his first week and I do understand your concerns on his service. I am sure he will loosen up and start to enjoy his position as times goes on. Kind regards Sarah More

Went to Launceston for a birthday weekend with my other half. We stumbled across this restaurant with the owner out the front picking produce for the night. The welcome after hours- to make a booking was no fuss and extremely helpful. We still tell all family and friends to go to Novaro's if they'd like amazing food and service! Still... More

Four of us loved our dinner last night. This is my favourite restaurant in Launceston. Sarah and the team met all expectations and the food was delicious. I can't recommend this place highly enough. The garlic bread yum, tiger prawn spaghetti yummier, pink peppercorn steak is to die for and according to Wify, the creme brule is tip top also.

Navajos is fine Italian dining featuring the freshest of Tasmanian fare. Quail, ocean scallops, oysters, Tasmanian beef and lamb and a wine list featuring the taste of Australia.

Getting a solo booking on a Saturday night with no notice ... that was my challenge. Novaro's delivered with two interesting courses, friendly but not intrusive service and a classic ambience. Given it was a Saturday night they needed to give me a sitting window. They were clear about it but in no way made me feel rushed.

Thank Stephen W
