I have never had a bad meal at Nova. The dishes are nicely plated and are served on hot plates. The sauces are what make the dishes in my opinion. The service is always spot-on. Sousa, I hope I spelled it correctly is our favorite...More

This place is a bit of a blast from the past--a white-tablecloth European restaurant with classic seafood, veal and lamb entrees, hot flaky bread, and impeccable formal service. The food was very good and we felt spoiled and pampered. And the prices were more than...More

We have enjoyed several meals over the past few years at Nova Europa and have never been disappointed. The site is routine strip-mall in nature, but once inside, the ambiance is reminiscent of a real European bistro. Our server was professional, friendly, and eager to...More
