Deafening and overpacked

If you want a restaurant where you can talk to your tablemates, forget this place. The noise level is deafening and I've never been to a restaurant where they packed more tables together so tightly. The food was pretty ordinary and I. can't imagine ever going back. The owner stopped by our table to ask how everything was. My husband said okay and was about to tell him how overcrowded it was, but he turned away. I... view more

Great Food

My boyfriend and I come here very often since it is located just a few blocks away from my apartment. I'm extremely picky when it comes to food and I absolutely love the food here. The only issue is, the restaurant is extremely crowded. Being that it is a small place, each table is on top of one another, offering no privacy. I feel like I'm having dinner with the couple next to me. All in all - good food, crowded s... view more

I had clients coming in to town and made reservations for them (party of 10) in the large table 2 weeks in advance, and then confirmed the reservation day-of. and even held it with my credit card. When my party arrived they were asked to wait over 30 minutes and then were denied the table because another party of ""regulars"" came in and were given the table. They were so frustrated at the terrible service they l... view more

Excellent food and service

I decided to try this place because I needed a small romantic type italian food restaurant to take my girl on a date. I was looking for a decent variety of food and I found it here. The atmosphere was very nice and quiet and the service was great. They did not hover over me but were available at the turn of my head as if it was anticipated. The food was delicious as the steak was well cooked and the chicken was a... view more

Novita is one of the most charming Italian restaurant in manhattan, I was very impressed right away from the pleasant atmosphere of the ambient and the friendly welcoming and hospitality , but the real amazement came when the food arrived , each person at my table was delighted from their choices\r of the original Italian food making it one the most pleasant dining experience I had in long time .

Always a Great Experience Especially When The G Man Is In The House--Great Cheese Cake--Wonderful St

I always enjoy going to Novita. The food is always outstanding the waiters great and Giuseppe the manager one of a kind--the greeter of the Italian kind! I love the samon first course, believe that the lamb is superior and the cheese cake-ineffable. I simply love this place. The staff, food and friendly atmosphere make it the place you want to be when you are with special friends or when you simply want a great... view more

What a pleasure

Novita has some of the most delicately prepared Italian food in NY. The way the simple dishes are developed to full sophistication is masterful. I have been there with clients of mine, girlfriend, and by myself and I have always had a very pleasant experience. The whole staff is courteous and prompt and the wine by the glass selection is excellent and reasonably priced.\r \r Thank you for being there.

italian at its best

novita is one my favorite places in town - the food is exceptional, simple and to the point yet irresistably savory. with so many italian restaurants around it's the clear standout when you want italian at its best. the stuffed zuchini blossoms and porcini ravioli are divine and the fish specials always remind me it is called 'a special'. the wine selection is excellent and the knowledgable staff will quickly guide y... view more

Customer service ?

Baa, baa, baa.... how can one enjoy a meal while tables are being moved around over one's head to squeeze in extra seating, waiters constantly bumping into you, or just standing around and not clearing off the empty wine bottle or drinks ? The best service we received was when we finished our entrees and everything was cleared immediately in order to speed up the turnover. The food was good but the overall experienc... view more
