This was the second time we visited Pizza Nova - first time was 4 years ago. They have many kinds of pizza, appetizers, and drinks. The place can be quite noisy at times, so don't go there for a meeting - you'll only be able to talk to the person next to you. We ordered the cheesy garlic bread appetizer.... More

Stopped here for dinner while wait for my boat to arrive. it's right on the harbor and very accessible. Also pretty busy! service was great, pizza was good.. the personal pizza size was very generous.. I would have like a few more options of toppings and combinations though seemed a little limited and um.. "Californian" but as a New Yorkers... More

Firstly, I am writing from perspective of a person with food allergies. Most restaurants and chefs/managers know what is in their food or what ingredients are in their food. It is beyond me that the staff, chefs, and managers have no idea what is in their food. Asking the server upon ordering what items had dairy or egg in them,... More

Should have paid attention: there are two billboards on 395 proclaiming this joint. The first headed south informs only 200 miles to great pizza! The second boldly states 199.5 miles to go. We visited on A Thursday afternoon around 4 for Happy Hour. Super good deals on drinks and appetizers. Definitely try the Thai Pizza, calamari, and adult macaroni w... More

We passed here while biking around the city and needed a rest from the saddle. We sat outside and enjoyed the view of the harbour. Free garlic dough balls were a nice surprise but it meant you really wouldn't order a starter. We shared a really yummy chicken club sandwich and service was good. Blueberry lemonade was a bit disappointing... More

We had the Thai chicken pizza. Pretty similar to CPK's, good but nothing too special. The Chipotle lime chicken salad was pretty good too. We were seated quickly on a busy Labor day weekend, so I appreciated that. This is decent pizza and friendly service.

My wife and I love this restaurant! We have been here before and made sure that we went again, and will be back. We really like the garlic bread knots, which are pizza dough slathered in buttery garlic with rosemary, fantastic! These could be a meal by just adding a salad. The prices are reasonable but if you need to... More

We stayed at a hotel right across the street and were given this restaurant as a suggestion. It was a very nice restaurant, with great views and great food. Good value. Three of us had salads and the other had lobster bisque. All the food was very good and our waiter, Charlie, was very good. Strongly recommend!!

Tasty pizza in a nice setting by the fishing harbor. Was close to our hotel. Not too pricey with unique pizza - nothing like generic chain stuff. Has reputation for great Italian dishes too. Would go back.
