Started with a bottle from their extensive wine list; then had two of the best meals we've had anywhere: a Filet Mignon of Veal with Blue Cheese, and Duck in Grand Marnier. Finished off with Banana's Foster made at our table. Food was exquisite, service was impeccable. I would... More

My last review was not all that good as ownership had changed and our meal was poor..Service was great however I think they need to get over a few humps...I'm pleased to say our most recent visit was outstanding..I totally recommend Novelli's for a great evening of great food and service.....

I've driven by this restaurant so many times and never even noticed it was there – oh what I've been missing! Some friends of ours took us here for lunch. Absolutely the best food and the best service around. The staff are friendly, helpful and extremely professional. Someone in our party had special dietary requirements and they were so obliging!...

We had been to Novellis a few times previously; and I had always considered it consistently the best. Then, after being a couple for 24 years, we got married and had our family of 15 people there to celebrate. It was beyond wonderful. Everyone raved, about the family style appetizers (we chose crab cakes, calamari, and Kobi meatballs.) And very... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere of this restaurant. Food: This is the best Risotto I have ever tasted- and I used to live in Italy. I sampled other meals from around my table, the food is supple, perfect temperature, perfect texture. Very impressive. Atmosphere: This restaurant attracts an attractive middle aged crowd. Everybody was well dressed and happy to be... More

I love Novelli. Apparently it changed ownership recently, but you would never know by the food or atmosphere. Nothing has changed but the people running it. It is the best food in Wayne.
