This is a favorite for a romantic dinner. The menu which changes seasonally always has great choices. The service is always very personal and attentive.

I attened a dinner presentation at Nuvolari's. There back room is very cozy with ample space for a small party. The service was good and the food was delicious. I really loved the oysters with brie!

Had two successive evenings at Nuvolari's. There is no question that the food is great. Definitely not a place for those on a tight budget, though.

From our large party, I heard only compliments about the food. I found the salmon excellent, and others made similar comments about their meals. Servers seemed a bit awkward and unsure of themselves, and there were noticeable gaps in the service.

Noise level was high, but not prohibitive to conversation. Location is easily walkable from any point in Old Mandeville, and there was convenient parking nearby, which is not always the case in this area.

One of the best restaurant meals ever! From the appetizers all the way through to the awesome deserts, the food/atmoshere/service was outstanding. Definitely a must go to restaurant for Italian inspired meals and worth the trip across the causeway from New Orleans. A far cry from the run of the mill Italian restaurants, this one made some interesting twists to flavors and the quiet atmosphere made it a most enjoyable evening.
