Just wandered in off the street looking for Italian food while in the neighborhood. We did not expect it to be as nice as it was, especially given since it is a rather nondescript strip mall. We noticed that there was some outdoor seating off on the west side, which would be really nice in the warm weather and we... More

We just happened upon this gem after arriving in Addison from a 6 hour drive and were delightfully pleased with our choice. Food was excellent. Recommended to our local family members.

There are so many restaurants in the suburbs and it is not easy picking out a place you really want to go back to unless it is for something different. Some nice changes in the menu mentioned to me by a friend gave us the reason. Steak calamari grilled perfectly with just the right amount of seasoning with a center... More

From the time we walked into the restaurant, there was an industrial type cleaning agent smell. Like bathroom lysol type. Never smelled that in a restaurant and it didn't dissipate. They have a wood burning oven, and the smell of warm bread or cooking pizza should fill the air. It was a weeknight and it was the two of us... More

The food was good but not out of the ordinary and exspensive. Service was slow for only having three tables full. It's out of place for the strip mall its in. They'd do better in Oakbrook.

We liked the food and service. The place was a little dim for my liking but otherwise I have no complaints.

This was the first time I have tried the Addison location for Nuova Italia. Basically the same menu as the one in St. Charles. We had a combination of shrimp dejonge appetizer, a veal dish and pasta dish. Everything was served hot and flavorful. They have an extensive liquor/wine selection. The ambience is not as nice as the St. Charles... More

Was a little nervous that the dining room wasn't very busy, but all concerns were quickly washed away. The service was great and the food was some of the best Italian around. The rigatoni boscaiola was fantastic and their special duck cavatelli with procini mushrooms in a marsala cream sauce was outstanding. While the duck pasta was a special, our... More

Our first impression of this restaurant was watching our waiter eating in a corner of the restaurant. Moments later we were seated and watched while the hostess was also eating. When we got up to leave, she questioned why we're leaving. We explained that watching them eat and serving us at the same time bothered us, she commented "oh,we're only... More
