On Long Island, where Italian restaurants grow wild, La Novella refreshes the field with exceptional, vibrant fare, especially seafood. The owner, Michael Novella, who is often in the kitchen, presides over a dining room transformed from the past owners. The atmosphere is pleasant, with pine wainscoting, bentwood chairs and easygoing artwork on the walls. The background sound goes from Martin and Prima to Bocelli most evenings to live music on others. Having diner here is sure to relax the soul and lift the spirit!
Party Room Available (holds up to 100 people) , Plenty of parking, Handicap Accessible, and Gift Certificates Available!
The cuisine at La Novella is exceptional. Sample the artfully arranged, tender grilled calamari, finished with a dab of basil-driven pesto and ripe, chopped tomatoes. Or a delicately seasoned, big-hearted stuffed artichoke. For dinner, consider the fettuccine with smoked salmon and asparagus, in a coral-shaded sauce or the perciatelli alla primavera with vegetables and a gloss of olive oil. If seafood is what you'd like, try Stripped bass sauteed with capers, lemon and garlic or the outstanding whole, grilled snapper in sizes for one to three diners. From pasta to seafood, we've perfected it all.
