I love their cocktails and they have a good wine selection. Overall the food is very good. I am not crazy about their red sauce- mine is a 100 times better. But still solid choice especially their happy hour.

I have been a fan of De Novo for years. Great food, service and atmosphere! Talk to Dimitri the owner if you need anything. He always has a smile and makes great efforts to connect with the customers.
