We walked in at 6:30, empty. Every one , though was attentive. We had our drinks, and mussel in red sauce. Great garlic bread, too. Every component of our diners, was perfect. Well worth the time. Real home made pasta.

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

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.
