Norabella is a treat, a treat you should indulge in. A small 9 table cozy place which surprisingly uses the space so well you totally forget you are in a small cottage type building. We had an early reservation so the pleasant waitstaff was devoted to us, without hovering over us. The eggplant first course was stuffed with spinach and smoked gouda then baked. Very good. My scrod was pan sautéed in a lemon caper sauce with asparagus risotto which was delicious. My husband who likes to try a lasagna dish whenever we do Italian was pleased with his selection. It was a very different lasagna then one would think, light, with mushrooms, baked in a round pan and placed on top of an excellent italian sauce. Everything is cooked to order so it's not a quick in and out kind of place but it's not meant to be. Sit, relax, partake in conversation and enjoy an outstanding dining experience.

Food very good....I had the Veal Milanese and was very good...... Seating is very cramped, so you get to know your dining neighbors .... The restaurant needs a serious cleaning

It looks like nothing much from the street, but walk inside and you find yourself in a tiny cottage of a restaurant: quiet, simple, homey. The lone waitress works hard, but, with only seating for about 16 people altogether, her job is at least possible, and she does a great job of keeping up. The food is simply divine. My veal chop was the best I've ever had: incredibly tender meat, a savory sauce laced with magnificent asparagus tips and spinach and a small mountain of chunky mashed potato. My wife got the vegetable lasagna and -- uncharacteristically -- cleaned her plate. We fell into comfortable conversation with the couple seated next to us and had a delightful time. It felt more like eating at a private home than a place of business. We loved it and will return many times.

After reading the amazing reviews on TripAdvisor, we went in to Norabella with high expectations. Having just returned from Italy, we were ready for some authentic cuisine. Unfortunately, we were disappointed from the start. The menu was not "Italian" Italian, but rather, Italian American. The bread was stale. We both ordered a special, neither of which was anything special. Overcooked Swordfish and a blah Chicken Saltimbocca. Perhaps if we hadn't gone in with such high hopes, we would not have been so disappointed. It was very average Italian food, though quite pricey. We did have a nice bottle of Barbera, fairly priced, which saved the evening.
