I had the arugula salad as an appetizer for dinner and went back the next day to have it for lunch with chicken. The lemon dressing addictive and the chicken was perfectly prepared.
I rarely ever order pasta at a restaurant. Never as good as homemade. This however, is amazing, and have had it more than once.
Saturday night out to Novo cafe with my girfriend. We were greeted by the owner signor Massimo and very friendly he arrange to have a table. I ordered Puttanesca with shrimp and my girlfriend had Lasagne. Both dishes were outstanding as taste , size and presentation. We will be back for other dishes. We had a a very pleasant experience. Way to go Novo
Trust me, I'm a New York-ah. The pizza was fantastic. Chewy on the inside, crispy on the outside crust with a bit of char as it should be. Perfect balance of sweet and salty sauce and fresh creamy, stringy mozzarella! Yum! And the onion Focaccia bread service was to die for. Please don't change a thing. It really was perfect.
It was delicious. Great portion size and good amount of chicken. I love this salad and sometimes include the salmon which is also amazing. This salad and the beef ragu pasta are my favorite. With the lasagna close behind. Now I need to try some desserts! :-)
This may be one of the best sandwiches I ever had. It tastes like a full chicken dinner in delicious panini pressed bread. I usually get pizza or pasta when I go but was craving a sandwich and it may be the decision Ive made in awhile.
Very cheesy! Perfect amount of garlic.
Came for the first time tonight. Pepperoni pizza, fettuccine Alfredo and Cesar salad. Monday night special $6.00 for pizza or pasta. Salad was a little bit more expensive but the dressing may have been the best ever! The pepperoni was imported and so much better than expected Thin crust with just amount of sauce and cheese. Hubby ate every bite of the pasta and 1/2 my pizza. We will definitely be back. Great atmosphere. Different areas of the restaurant have a different feeling. Outside by the fire, cafe tables and cafe style ordering for sandwiches, salads, pizza and pasta for a quick bite, restaurant area with full service, full bar and nice selection of wine. We may be back every week.
We have gone here twice. Once for dinner and once for brunch. When we went for dinner, we were a large party celebrating my dad's birthday. Everyone loved their meal! The next time, we went back for brunch and once again, everyone loved what they ate. The pancakes were delicious! Beyond the food, the customer service has been wonderful! Hope this place stays in our neighborhood.
First time trying out this restaurant. The ambiance was perfect, good wine, and all the ingredients in my dish were fresh and delicious! The bread with oil/vinegar was free and tasty! Lots of tempting desserts available as well. I will definitely be back.
My go to item! The bread is delicious and super soft yet crunchy at the same time. Chicken is well seasoned and cooked. Perfect amount of pesto!
I travel a lot for work and when I find restaurants that are GREAT I keep coming back! AMAZING Food!!! I will definitely come back! I love this area!
Best garlic cheesy bread!
The pasta was absolutely perfect! From the texture to the sauce and the slight taste of lemon, my mom and I definitely savored every bite. Not to mention the amazing selection of pastries they had as well. The presentation was just as good as the sweets themselves. We also had a unique experience by getting to introduce ourselves to the restaurant owner and get a glimpse of his roots and the authenticity behind the restaurant. Will surely be coming back and bringing plenty of guests!
The best bolognese I have ever eaten! The sauce and homemade pasta are to die for! My mouth is watering as I write this.
This is my fav lunch go to at Novo. Fantastic meatball sub
Excellent preparation - neat, orderly, and delicious!
Always a great experience. Fabulous food as well as all the people who work there. Our go to place for a great dinner and fun times. You are treated as family!
We adore Novo Cafe and eat here all the time! We have yet to have something we didn't like. All their food is delicious and made with love. The pizzas have a thin yet crisp crust, their gnocchi is pillowy and soft, and even the salads are packed full of flavor. By far one of our favorite restaurants in town!
Went for happy hour and tried the Calmari, Burrata Toast, Michelangelo Salad and the pasta Bolognese... Everything was delicious and fresh tasting and the prices were good and serving sizes were very substantial. We look forward to returning and trying more!
This place has become a family favorite! I like the option of dining in the cafe or in the more formal restaurant. The chicken parmesan is delicious! And my husband love the seafood salad. The kids pasta options are perfect for my 8 year old! We're trying breakfast here next!
This was amazing, ton of mushrooms and I had it with angel hair and pesto. I love their pesto. I wish I had it right now.
The food was fabulous, we started with salads, very well dressed, fresh and interesting ingredients! My pasta was delicious, fresh seafood, and great fresh pasta, the owner spent time with us discussing his vision and suggested wonderful wine. The prices were reasonable and the food was exceptional! I will be back and will be bringing everyone I know!
I am not even kidding when I say that I ordered the Spaghetti Arrabiata w/Shrimp 3x in one week because it is that freaking good. Aside from the gorgeous presentation of a generous amount of butterflied shrimp in their shell atop a swirled pile of pasta, this sauce was kickass. It was the perfect blend of garlic, fresh tomato, herbs and spice that elevates this to true culinary perfection. I am a sauce snob for sure and this was absolutely fantastic. I also tried their Chicken Caesar which was excellent. I especially liked the dressing. We also took home a couple of desserts to try (a cream puff and a chocolate eclair). Both were delicious. The ambience is wonderful and welcoming and their Happy Hour can't be beat. Five stars from me!
We have been here about ten times now and I can't get away from the chicken parmesan. It's the best and anything from their bakery is amazing so it doesn't matter what you get, but the apricot crostata is a favorite.
Super flavorful. I'd highly suggest this dish. I just wish there was more of it as I found I was still kind of hungry afterwards (we didn't do appetizers though, so that's always an option)
I'll be really honest, the curb appeal of this dish is lacking. When it was set in front of me, the green noodles and yellow-ish sauce did NOT look appetizing. One bite in, and I was done for. It is now my favorite. Incredibly flavorful, pretty light for a pasta dish, and super savory. It is so delicious I would eat it weekly if I could. You're missing out if you don't try the Norcina. Remember, looks can be deceiving.
Our first visit was the Happy Hour. We had the Margarita Pizza, Rigatoni and a margarita. All very good and I knew we'd be back. Later that week, we had a small gathering of 11 people over for dinner who were promised Chicken Parmigiana. So I cheated. I ran into Novo and ordered for a later pickup. Also bought their fresh pasta. The dinner was fantastic and quite reasonable. The pieces of Chicken Parm were big and easily served 12. I also bought the Focaccia with onion...fantastic. Will definitely try most everything on the menu.
I've had so many wonderful dishes here, it's hard to pick, so I picked the one I had most recently. Though if I'm being honest, I really come here for the amazing desserts! They make fresh Italian desserts that are absolutely delicious, and just the right (mini) size!
So good! Highly recommend.
Visited the new Westlake Village restaurant and tried this dish - it was delicious! The ravioli was stuffed with just the right amount of lobster and cheese and the pink sauce was Devine. I also had the butternut squash soup which was also very good. So glad to have this restaurant in the area! Will return to try other dishes as well as breakfast.
The pink sauce from Novo Cafe is the best in this neighborhood. I order from here weekly :)
I absolutely love this salad! Favorite salad.
The vegetarian panini is the best panini I have ever had without a doubt. I would highly recommend.
The Lobster ravioli was delicious! The ravioli was fresh and the sauce was a perfect creamy consistency, simply excellent!! Besides the delicious food the restaurants decor and ambiance was simple elegance. To top it all off, the service was impeccable! Our server was knowledgeable of the dishes ingredients, was attentive and very professional. Highly recommend!!
Best Tuna melt in LA!
The Best!!! We cannot say enough wonderful things about Novo! We have been fortunate enough to eat at the restaurant twice this week. I think my 11-year-old son is the president of the Novo fan club! We have spent a lot of time in Italy and this restaurant is a 10 out of 10 in all areas! From the salads, to the Pizza, to the chicken Parmesan, to the exquisite and exceptional desserts… Their ingredients and preparation are superb! The owners are incredibly warm and inviting. We can't wait to come back again and now that we have had lunch and two dinners we are going to be trying Novo for breakfast! The fresh pastas they sell will become a weekly shopping staple in my home! No more boxed pasta when these very reasonably price and beautiful pastas are so readily available. So happy to have Novo in Westlake Village! A+++
The pizza was absolutely delicious. The crust was so flavor full and it was served piping hot and fresh. We also had a caesar salad and I was impressed with that also. The dressing is eggless and no anchovies. Initially, I did not think that would be as good as dressing with both of those items, however, I was pleasantly surprised. The staff is very friendly and attentive as well.
The combination of ingredients = so refreshing! This is my go-to salad. (The bread basket and great service make going to Novo cafe an A+ experience every time 😊)
Went to Westlake Village for dinner! Service was wonderful! Food very good. The red sauce was excellent. Reminds me of my Great Grandma Rosas sauce. Pear salad was chopped and so good. Burrata was also good. Deserts excellent. Wish Happy Hour was a little longer. Want to go try breakfast now.. owner was nerdy friendly. We will go back.💫
