It is quite expensive but for those who appreciate fine dining well worth the visit and price / quality is good. The place is quite... More

One of our favourite places to dine Sara, Nick and the staff will treat you like a family friend. If you are after fine dining, great wines and good service and are happy to pay that little extra for the experience I would certainly recommend Novaro's

My partner and I dined here for our first date and absolutely loved everything about the place so we decided to visit again for our anniversary. We certainly weren't disappointed. The atmosphere, the service and of course the food is all incredible. Hope to visit again soon.

Novaro's is a fairly small restaurant in CBD Launceston catering for around 32 diners. We had dinner with friends on a busy Saturday after a Hawthorn AFL game had attracted a big crowd. Novaro's runs two sittings and we elected the 8pm second sitting. The wait was worth it. Food quality was excellent, wine list comprehensive and service friendly and... More

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
