This spot was elegant and old school when it was Renzo's. Now the waiters are trained right in front of the customers which is not a major faux pas if the food held up. In my opinion, it does not. I ordered a dish that...More

Hello, I sincerely apologize. I wish you would have mentioned your concerns about your meal while you were visiting. We rarely overcook items, especially shrimp. In most instances, it is really about preference. What seems overcooked to one diner, maybe perfect to another. If I...More

Hello Alyssa, I value every customer that walks through our door, and I feel terrible you left feeling unsatisfied with our service. It was a busy evening, and we obviously missed the mark a bit where you are concerned. If you give us another opportunity,...More

Second time her for dinner. Brought friends this time and was sorry I did. Marco and his staff are great but whoever is doing the cooking should be fired! Too many choices in Boca to eat good food and this is not one of them.

Oscar Wilde is known to have said, “I can’t stand people who don’t take food seriously.” In Italy, food is both a serious matter and a source of great enjoyment. At Novello Restaurant & Bar, owner Marco Turano takes great pride in bringing the Italian fine dining tradition to Boca Raton by offering guests authentic Italian cuisine made from the finest ingredients, most sourced locally, served with courtesy and efficiency by skilled, professional waitstaff. With over twenty years of restaurant and hospitality experience and with Novello as the realization of his desire to create a chic, yet casual, Italian bistro. Novello is as comfortable for a romantic holiday dinner as it is for a laid-back weekend family dinner or formal weekday business event.
