Nuvolari's is our go to when we are not sure where to go. They offer a variety of Italian, seafood, and steaks. Good atmosphere with good drinks. Priced mid-range. We went on a Monday night, when most restaurants were closed. When ever we are not sure of where to take a guest, we find Nuvolari's does well. Good for visiting... More

I recently moved to the area and Nuvo's has quickly become one of my favorite spots. Wally makes a mean martini and everything I've had so far has been very good. I've stuck mostly to seafood so thats why I can speak to but nothing but great so far!

I took my wife here tonight and everything was wonderful. There is not dress code. The portions are a good size and flavorful. I ordered the char grilled fish and my wife had the salmon. Both meals were phenomenal. We finished our meals with peppermint ice cream which was also very good. Definite must eat!

Going out to eat for us is a treat, and Nuvolari's is one of our first choices for celebrations. But whether for special occasions or just eating out on a work night, Nuvolari's... More

If you are from New Orleans, as I am, you get used to restaurant providing great food with a nice ambiance. Since moving to the Northshore 7 years ago I have found Nuvolari's to be my favorite go to restaurant to enjoy an old fashion at the fantastic wooden bar and then a delicious meal at the table.

This was a great place. The food was great and the service was even better. It is not a big place but the ambiance was wonderful. The bar is beautiful. It is just a few blocks from Lake Ponchartrain. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling in this area.

In January of 1982 after establishing Jacmel Inn, a fine dining restaurant, and Brady’s Grill and Bar in Hammond, Hoot Owl owners Paul Murphy and Rick Colucci along with Mandeville native Wallace Simmons took over the lease of the former Prieto Dry Goods store on Girod street in Mandeville. Paul, Rick and Wallace completely remodeled the interior on their own with a vision to bring a classical New York style dining room to the quiet North Shore town. The extensive remodeling was an example of keeping the unique New Orleans style structure outside intact while creating a rich restaurant experience inside. Upon entering the foyer of Nuvolari's, you can tell that a unique restaurant lies before you. Rich hues of wood and soft lighting create an aura of sophistication that relaxes patrons and prepares them for a wonderful dining experience. This one of a kind architecture, consistently superb cuisine and wonderful staff make Nuvolari's a true dining experience!
