“ONE OF THE BEST KEPT SECRETS OF WHEATON”
Reviewed August 21, 2011

Nestled in a little strip mall one would not expect to find a restaurant of this caliber. From the service to the cuisine it is an excellent place to dine. I would highly recommend this restaurant for those who expect good food and excellent service. Ask for Desosou to be your waiter. He is old schooled and provides the best service imagineable. Give them a try you will not be disappointed. Bon appetit!

“A pleasant surprise in a strip mall”
Reviewed March 17, 2011

Good food in a Portugese restaurant located in a strip mall. Tuxedoed waiters do an excellent job and atmosphere is elegant. There is only one option for vegetarians--manacotti. Prices are high but entrees include a salad.

“Disappointed (and I am not picky!)”
Reviewed April 18, 2008

I saw some folks I have not seen in 37 years, and we went to this place. Well, I am glad that e did not spend much time here because the food was overpriced and mediocre. Early bird dinner "specials' were not specials at all. Dessert selection for the special was custard or cheesecake. wow.

You'd do much better getting the meal a-la-carte. My chicken marsala was OK...no real complaints, but the portion might have been larger a-la-carte and for $3.00 less.

So, pass this one by. There are many more restaurant selections fairly close by. Pray that there is an "under new management" sign up sometime soon.

“A Restaurant to Forget”
Reviewed November 27, 2007

In mid-November 2007 we had dinner with friends at Nova Europa. This is not a restaurant which we could recommend or to which we would return. The food is mediocre at best, and from our own dishes we would say poorly prepared. The chef needs to return to culinary school or retire. The wine list is problematic. We had three different wines—all strongly endorsed by the waiter. None of them were worth remembering except for their over priced status. The food prices are relatively low—which may explain why the restaurant was crowded on the Saturday evening that we were there. But of course you get what you pay for. Forget this place and eat elsewhere.
