My boyfriend and I went to Nuovo for the first time the day after Valentine's Day. The atmosphere was nice, but even better was the food! He said that he had the best lasagna he's ever had, and I had hands down the best Chicken Piccata I've ever had! The portions aren't the typical Italian restaurant that are way too... More

I took my friend here for her 30th birthday dinner. The atmosphere is very warm and cozy. It would make for a perfect date night experience, but really perfect for just any special occasion. Why I am really giving Nuovo an "excellent" rating is due to the amazing service we had. Our waitress was superb! She greeted us right away... More

We went there during restaurant week. The restaurant was active and lively. Three of the four in our party ordered specials for restaurant week in the other order off the menu. Everyone was extremely pleased with the service and the meal. Ambience was delightful. Parking in front was easy.

We met a couple of our friends Friday night, having never eaten there before was pleasantly surprised the deliciousness of the food. The waitress was very bubbly and attentive and the drinks were going down nicely...fresh warm rolls were excellent, followed by a nice mix of greens included with the entree got things off to a enjoyable experience. The entrees... More

My family had a wonderful dinner experience at Nuovo. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. Nuovo serves Italian food. This is a relatively new restaurant in town, this is our third time eating here and we highly recommend it!

Nuovo has 'complementary' valet parking. The gentlemen who operate the stand are friendly and take good care of your car. They are careful drivers. Make sure you have two dollars in cash to tip them. There is no provided restaurant parking, Nuovo is on a VERY busy street. Our car had to be parked two blocks down on the street... More

Small, comfortable, very good service, nice ambiance, pricy. The four entrees ordered were scallops with home made ravioli, mahi mahi putanesca, chicken saltembuca and petite lamb chops. The three Italian dishes were good but the 4 petite lamb chops were very petite and were not at all tender; at $27; very disappointing. The calamari app was very tender and nicely... More

After a recent show at the Hanover Theatre, we enjoyed an excellent meal at Nuovo. Our waitress was one of the best waitresses that has ever served us. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and had the right balance of checking in on us, but not doing it too much. The menu was extensive and there is something that pretty much even... More

Finally........an amazing restaurant outside Greater Boston. I booked Nuovo based on a recommendation from Yelp and Trip Adviser. I was attending the Hanover Theater with my husband and was looking for an unusual restaurant with an amazing menu. This restaurant got top marks and now I understand why. Nuovo is an Italian restaurant with modern flair. Gone are the piles... More

We had a special event reception here upstairs with approximately 70 people. Had appetizers, buffet food, cake for dessert, and the bar going. With all that activity, service was very good and still managed to be personal. All the food we had was very good, and consistently delivered even for our large party. The space upstairs was very nice, private... More
