Novella Meatballs

My husband and I dont typically go out to dinner for Italian! But after trying Novella that trend will ne changing. The food is amazing, the best Italian food in the columbus area that is authentic. The service was also great. Novella is now our favorite date night restaurant!

I can't say enough about my first experience at Novella! Ben and Lauren at the bar felt like old friends within moments. Moved to a table for dinner with a friend, and from the focaccia to the Caesar salad to the Rigatoni every bite was delicious. Lauren recommended her favorite red offered in a glass and it is now my new favorite! I just forget the name but I'm going back ASAP to find out! The rigatoni and short rib ragu was flavorful and robust, so tasty, tender, and perfectly al dente pasta. I have been craving it 24-hours later and can't wait to go back. I've invited 3 different people to go back with me. The small specialty menu, the ambiance, and the experience is one of my favorites ever! Bravo!

Pork Shank

Pork shank was amazing. It was extremely tenders and paired amazingly well with the cherries and creamy polenta. Would definitely recommend trying it

Raspberry Doughnuts

I love desserts. Not everyone does. Even if you don't, please give these a try. Warm, not too sweet, and with a kick at the back end that's just right. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

Ricotta with Honey

Had the pleasure of dining here for the first time last night with some friends. We ordered the ricotta bread for an appetizer and Holy Sh&T it was unexpectedly amazing. Wish I would have ordered more to go for a late night after-dinner dessert. Was told that it will be coming off the menu soon---so, if you haven't gotten in yet, make it a point to do it ASAP and order the ricotta bread and you can thank me later.

Novella Meatballs

From one local couple that frequently eat out and around Columbus, Novella is a must do! As an Italian - I generally do not eat this cuisine out since I find it lacks authenticity and true flavor. Novella will not disappoint! The Hugo drink is also amazing!

This dish was very good. The sauce was rich and robust. Then add that to the fact that the shortrib was very good and nice and tender. Everything in this dish married well together and was one of the highlights of my visit.
