The food was extremely good!! Loved the espresso martini. We sat at the bar, so we got to see everything. It was so nice to see such a well run kitchen. Everyone was pleasant and helpful to each other. So very glad they are back open.

Quaint spot with a nice vibe and family environment. Fast, friendly and courteous staff. Great food, some of the best Italian you will find in the area. Drop in and say "Hi!" to Megan, Hope, Leah and the gang. It will be well worth the visit. Scallop Marsala is definitely worth tasting.

I’ve lived most of my life in westbrook… with that said, Casa Novello is back and not just in name. I spent a lot of dinners with my parents at the old Novello, the new ownership and team did a fantastic job! The food was amazing, service fantastic and we will definitely be going back! The whole family loved it.

Anniversary dinner
Everything tasted so fresh and authentic. My husband and I shared the chicken piccata and it was so rich and flavorful. The side salads with the Italian dressing were amazing and the tomatoes in the salad tasted like they were freshly plucked from a garden. Would highly recommend.

I went on the second day of their reopen. The staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming to my party.

Hey Casa Novello, I read that you're closing because of "lack of workers". Just want to let you know that I'd be excited to quit my job and work for you, front or back of house, for $35/hr plus healthcare and PTO. I'm sure all my friends who used to slave away at restaurants for laughably little money are in the same boat, let me kn ... read more

Booked ahead via a phone reservation and they were amazingly hospitable. It was for a special occasion and they only had open tables for 4:30pm and 7:30pm. They then asked what time I would like.
