Busy day at work and need to pick up and drop off son at evening soccer practice, made arranging dinner plans for Valentine's Day difficult. So to find a place with good food and atmosphere at 5:00pm is next to impossible. But one of our favorite places for Italian food is Casa Novello in Westbrook. We were able to get... More

Gave it a score of 3 because 4 or very good would be a bit too much but the word 'average' almost seems a little unfair. The food is usually quite good, imo, and the service is typically good too. What gives it a 3 for me is it is inconsistent and for a small Italian restaurant, I can't forgive... More

My wife and I were looking for a nice simple place to have dinner, but not to far from our rental house. We found the Casa Novello on line off we went. It is a small place on the Main Street. We found friendly staff, good food and reasonable prices. We also hit it right because it was a Monday... More

Recently visited with 4 friends for dinner. Atmosphere is adorable and quaint. Drinks were served promptly. They have a full bar, draft beer and a small selection of wine. Appetizers were great- fried ravioli with marinara. Salad was great with an excellent homemade Italian dressing. I went with a personal favorite for dinner, chicken piccata. It was terrible! I should've... More

Not our 1st visit but it had been a while. We were looking for a late afternoon "nip and nom", too early for supper but in the mood for something to eat and a drink or two. Service initially was attentive but over time we seemed to be more of an afterthought. They were not busy at the time of... More

We've been told by several friends about Casa Novello and when I saw a 50/50 deal we decided to try it. Our only regret is not visiting sooner! ! Prompt service, waitress was very friendly but not intrusive. Small, casual dining room. The food was excellent. We ordered veal parmigiano and eggplant parmigiano, and we shared meals. Also shared calamari.... More

The food is pretty good. Portions are quite large. My favorite is the Chicken Marsala. Sauce is creamy and chicken is tasty. I'm not a fan of their marinara sauce, tho. I'm a picky person when it comes to sauce. It's not flavorful enough for me. A little on the plain side. But, others prefer it. You be the judge.... More

This is a good Italian Restaurant that offers a variety of menu items. Seating is limited. Parking area is small. Food servings are large. Service is good.

With a limited number of restaurant offerings in the downtown Westbrook area, there are plenty of customers available for them all to thrive, and Casa's is no different, especially on Monday and Tuesday night's. Having probably dined here close to 20 times over the years, the occasional inconsistent meal isn't worth staying away for. Out favorite seats when without family... More
