Excellent find! Zucchini flowers were delish, antipasto was excellent!! We were a party of 6, and every meal was completely gone! The owners (chef and host) were wonderful hosts and gracious beyond belief. Was pleasantly surprised at this local find! We certainly be back again soon!!!

I could not of asked for a more exceptional birthday dinner. Patrick and his beautiful wife as well as our server were all so sweet and welcoming. We shared the antipasto which was so yummy. I had the best branzino since my twin sisters wedding 12 years ago. I definitely need to return for that, soon again. My two friends had the veal chop which they said was cooked to perfection, medium rare and the best gnocchi they have ever tasted. I almost had to tell them not to lick the plate, lol. And the icing on the cake, was really the best pistachio ice cream I've ever had. All of this in a cozy, charming authentic little corner Italian restaurant. Thank you Patrick ;) !

The food and ambiance were excellent. We have experienced many Italian restaurants in South Florida and this is one of the best.

I highly recommend Trattoria Novello as we were treated like family at the restaurant.

Food was very good. The Grilled Octopus appetizer was a major winner. The Yellow Fin was very good. We round the menu a little limited for our tastes. Especially in the protein main courses selections. Very limited deserts. No bar a draw back as well.

This was our second time here and we were not disappointed. Both the food and the service were exceptional. This is a small restaurant - just seven tables, but the menu choices were not lacking and the freshness of ingredients and creativity of preparation will have us coming back soon. Prices are reasonable and the chef welcomes every guest. Charming spot not to be missed.

Great food as well as a nice place for a quiet dinner. What a delightful find! I am so tired of restaurants where you have to shout over the "buzz" to be heard by your dinner companion. Soft background music made for a sophisticated and relaxing dining experience. The food was well prepared and delicious. Both of us ordered the burrata and beet salad which was wonderful. I had mussels fra diavolo. The pasta was prepared perfectly al dente. My companion had the branzino which he said was fresh and flavorful. We were welcomed by the chef/owner who was very gracious. So happy to have found this delightful establishment and will definitely return.

I want to start off and say that for over fifteen years of searching high and low for the perfect place to enjoy an Italian meal, I have found the place. Trattoria Novello, in Pompano Beach, Florida, home of the amazing Chef Pasquale!

We returned to Trattoria Novello after being disappointed with the service several years ago. We are happy we did. This is a WONDERFUL restaurant. The food is delicious!! Be sure to get the antipasto platter. Beautiful presentation and very good appetizer. The pastas are homemade. The service has improved and is very good. This is a great addition to the Pompano Beach dining scene. Can't wait to dine there again!!

Authentic Italiano food made by friendly owners in a beautiful atmosphere. Not too loud and great, delicious items. This was our third time ... and my wife's pick for her birthday dinner with friends. We weren't disappointed. Oh, and the prices are reasonable too. Try it today!

What can I say? There service is attentive, yet not overbearing. The Branzino a must! The calamari is perfection. We got the Antipasto and it is not only a gorgeous presentation, but delicious and has so much to taste. We also got the Filet Mignon special and it was outstanding and perfectly prepared. The pastas were al dente as it should be and the wine suggested was delicious. My second time here and will always be a place I visit when I am in town. Like that it could be months that I come and the quality is consistent.

A tiny gem in Pompano Beach between the ICW and the Isle Casino, just east of US 1. Yummy yummy food, great choices for wine (no liquor - just beer and wine), and not terribly expensive. Highly recommended for date night or small group of friends.

This is the best "dining experience" I have had in a long time. We enjoyed dinner for over two hours and every course was outstanding. The Antipasti is amazing, get it! The dinners were all excellent. The pasta was al dente and home made, the seafood was fresh and the chop was succulent. Desert and espresso topped off a perfect evening. The waiter, Marco, was informative and made you feel as he was serving you in his own home. It's nice to have a waiter who spends time conversing and not just throwing food at you and running away. The owners, the hostess and the chef, both came to our table to see if we enjoyed our dinner and told us about the culinary history. Nice touch! I will be back for certain. Just a heads up that it is beer and wine only.
