A quiet gem tucked in a cozy, warm space. We love this place! Go every year at Christmas with our family but enjoy it every couple of weeks simply because the food is terrific. Wonderful favors, nice portions and a terrific staff that takes good care of you. We've recently had dinner in the lovely bar with staff that now... More

Please, do not waste your money here!!! During our dinner, the waitress came over and told us we had to move to the bar. Confused, since we had only been there for 1hr, already had spent $100+ on our meal, drinks and were considering dessert, thought it was a mistake. Then the manager came over and told us we had...

Located in a repurposed church. Excellent, tasteful decor. Quiet. Good space between tables. Good wine list (primarily Italian) with some selections available "by the glass." Extensive menu. Notable buffalo mozzarella Capresi appetizer. Plenty to share. Superb warm bread with excellent olive oil and parm. Knowelegeable, pleasant, attentive staff. (Might have been a tad TOO attentive in plate clearing for one... More

Our group had dinner at this restaurant. The food was not worth the money and the service was poor. One of our group got sick the next morning from his meal. One couldn't eat his meal as it was too spicy - same meal as the one who got sick. Waitress spilled the wine, servers didn't know who got what... More

We had a group of 40 ladies dine at Nuova Italia on a Wednesday evening. I cannot tell you how fantastic this place is! Two waiters served us with exceptional poise and professionalism. Soups and Salads were served quickly, followed by our main meals (all ordered off the menu) and checks arrived in a very timely manner. I am simply... More

I was a little nervous to try this place due to the mixed reviews on trip advisor. I had a sausage wood fired pizza and my husband had the pizza with tomato and ham. What is cool is you can watch them cook your pizza in a brick oven. (The oven is in the dining room). I liked my husband's... More
