First time at this restaurant and won't be the last. Food was awesome.
Reserved a table and got in right away. But from there went all downhill.
Waited over 30 mins after ordering to get our food.
And when my wife order the special of the day, seafood ravioli, which cost around $18. She recieved a total of 5 ravioli.
Not impressed with this restaurant after hearing good things about it.
My wife and I went to the Nova Ristorante for our Valentines dinner. We found the service, food and ambiance excellent and the price was quite affordable. If there was one thing, I found the veal a little dry, but we will definitely be returning.
all was great, as always! :)
i brought another first date here and we had a nice time!
The waitress was very friendly. She recommended the ravioli special and the seafood spaghetti. Both were amazing choices.
A very excellent experience. We went with grand parents and our children. The food was delicious, the restaurant quiet and clean and inviting, and the service fast and incredibly friendly. We will definitely return. Nice to have something like this in the burbs.
Vessey was an amazing host. Super knowledgeable about the menu and restaurant!
A little loud at first but when a couple parties left it became tolerable. Food was great and waitress did her best. Maybe more servers would help. Error on bill but corrected quickly and graciously. The food was excellent.
Good food, nice service. Enjoyed lunch for my friend’s birthday.
We had a family gathering of 40 people. Attention to service and food preparation were fantastic. Thank you Mova Ristorante!
Excellent meal and service!
Great ambiance of a local restaurant. It was my first time here with my friend & we really enjoyed ourselves. The food & wine were both delicious & I would definitely recommend it to a friend for sure.
Food was amazing and staff was great.
The fettuccine Alfredo was so tasty with an amazing cream sauce with wine and fresh herbs and freshly grilled chicken!
As long they will maintain their food quality and hopefully, they will bring back Angel Hair pasta.
Absolutely wonderful server, she made us feel very welcome. The food was really good, though the veal was a little on the skimpy side. The pasta primavera was delicious. It was quiet when we got there, but got quite busy, & people need to learn to use their inside voices. But altogether a great experience.
Been going here many years. Recent updates are lovely, including new menu and better quality. Food is really good. MUCH more than pizza nova...this is now our go-to for family dinners. Love it.
The waitress keeps saying JESUS Christ
The pizza very delicious ✅
The restaurant is overall 8 rating
Amazing food! Super friendly staff. I would go back in a heartbeat.
Great restaurant. I would of missed it when passing by. Not a big restaurant from outside. The food was DELICIOUS. Great service. Good Parking. 3 people spent $105. 2 cokes (me), 2 glasses of wine, wings, soup, each of us had our own main dish.
We had tickets for the ballet downtown but we wanted to find a nice place with good selections for the vegetarians in our party instead of the restaurants close to the theatre which were either too expensive or had limited choices for the veggies. Not only was the food and selection great for everyone at Nova, the price was very reasonable, it was easy to get to and our server made sure we were on our way downtown with time to spare!
Food was okay! Service was good!
Lunched with 3 girlfriends ..great lunch specials offered ...quality and quantity excellent! Service was very good and courteous. Christmas decor was not overdone .. it was just right! The restaurant is bright and cheerful .. light colours.
Good selection of menu items and great for kids ( pizza and pasta). Service was excellent. Like the real Italian feeling. Well done Nova !
We visited for our first time on Saturday evening. Went with a group of 8 for a family dinner. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the gluten free pizza was delicious!
I met a friend here for some drinks and an appetizer that we shared - calamari. I love this dish but this place had it a bit burned that day, so something was off with that and the seasoning.
I will definitely still come back to try other dishes and perhaps the calamari will taste better on another day.
We had a large group of 28 friends and was the second time I arranged our dinner here. Service and food is amazing with reasonable prices. We will be back, probably for our Christmas get together. Highly recommend, and thank you to everyone!
Service was very good, food was also good. Had to pay for bread wish it was complimentary.
Dawn was our server and was great!! Asparagus salad needed a zip.. and we suggested lemon juice be added. Spaghetti was very good. Veal parm a hit and my artichoke penne was very good as well. Tiramisu was a disappointment ( no lady fingers to be found) but cheesecake etc was decadent and rich. We will go back!
First let me say that the staff was VERY pleasant and I enjoyed the food very much. We were dining with a toddler, and because of that, I would have expected a bit more attention and quicker service. It took a long time for anyone to take our order so it might have been nice if they had brought something small for our little guy to snack on - crackers? juice?
The noise level was quite high - and on this occasion it helped to hide our rowdy toddler... BUT... I would probably not choose Nova if I wanted a quieter meal.
The place was not full - but there did not seem to be enough waitstaff to look after all the tables in a timely manner.
Food overall is good, main entree is great. Dessert menu can be improve
We were a group of 6. Waiter was attentive. Food came quickly and hot. The only complaint, one of the 6 meals was much smaller in size, noticably so, not sure why.
My husband and I had a very enjoyable anniversary dinner. We definitely will be back.
Didn't realize the restaurant was closed for renovations when I made the online reservation. I went there from quite a distance to find it was closed. It would be wonderful if the online reservation service could let patrons know such important information when booking online.
My first visit, however, not my last. Excellent food and service and I will return.
The pasta was extremely flavourful. The staff was very nice. The price was affordable. Great meal.
Food was expensive when pizza is being brought out from Kitchen next door (Pizza Nova). Ambiance was OK. Owners can certainly work on reducing the prices to get customers back at their location.
Hadn't been to the restaurant in years so the renovations were a nice surprise. There were 8 of us, 6 adults and 2 children. Even though I had indicated that it was a Birthday when I made the reservation, the restaurant never acknowledged it. The waiter was very nice and attentive. Pizza was great, a little skimpy on the Cesar salads. Disappointed to learn that we couldn't order a large order of wings, apparently can but only for take out. Overall a good experience, would definitely go back.
The place has healthy options too. Was surprised how a not so big area can have a cozy and quiet feel. The fried calamari was heavenly, the steak and salmon was nicely done, and the rest of our orders were pleasant. The overall service is friendly and personable.
Overall it was rather disappointing to be honest. My girlfriend had the steak sandwich which needed to be sent back. I had a pasta dish that in my opinion was too small of portion. Service could have been better as well. Overall, I went once and wouldn't go back.
We pass by this place all the time and we finally tried it. It's a great neighbourhood place and really good if you have a large group and/or kids. The service was warm, friendly and attentive. We were there for lunch and found that the portions were a good size. Definitely recommend trying the asparagus salad.
