Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It was our 1st time; family members been there before & recommended. The restaurant has high ceiling, we choose to be seated at their tiered section which may serve a good section for a private party. Between the 5 of us with an 87 year old senior our server asked what do we want to drink before we could sit down. She then came back literally 3 times within 10 minutes, we had asked her to excuse us until when we are ready. The place was 1/3 filled right after Christmas & we need to take it easy right after the busiest time of year away from home. None of us expected to be in any rush especially when we had a fridge full of food yet choose to be out with family. Her hassling basically turned us off before our dinner arrived. The food was good, we may go back to this Italian restaurant in Markham and try again.

We spent 3 delightful evenings on Novati’s patio this summer. They consistently served dinner with a little extra flair each time. Their sauces so fit their dishes and their wine pairings did not disappoint. Might I suggest their halibut, or their duck in port sauce. A real treat was their risotto with veal and seafood. I’ll also recommend the roasted vegetable platter with chicken, not shrimp which turned out overcooked and dry. There is still lots of dishes I have not tried. Service is prompt and friendly. The chef showed up and visited our table as well to check on how the food was. Highly recommended.

I ate at Novita last night for the 1st time. I was more comfortable eating outside so the server wiped down the table and chairs for us because they were all wet from the rain. Our server was amazing and the food was beyond delicious!! I love that when we wanted to make some small changes there was no problem what so ever. They were extremely accommodating. At the end of the dinner the chef even came outside to see how our dinner was. I can’t wait to go back and I would highly recommend going here. Lots of parking, huge restaurant and large patio with huge umbrellas.

I made a reservation for Christmas Eve dinner at Novita a few weeks before the 24th. Then on the 24th, we arrived at Novita and found that the restaurant was closed. I was very upset that the restaurant did not let us know ahead of time that they would be closed on Christmas Eve. We had a party of eight so I was not able to get another reservation for my family at any other restaurants near Novita since everywhere else was fully booked. I had no idea why Novita would give me the reservation for the 24th if it was not planning to open that night. Or if they decided to close on Christmas Eve after making the reservations they should’ve contacted us and and anyone else that made reservations on Christmas Eve. Their poor customer service was not appreciated at all.

We had a wonderful experience at Novita! First, our server Jenn was terrific! She gave us excellent recommendations on restaurant favorites and we really loved the Pollo Milano. Both my daughter and I had the mashed potatoes and vegetables to accompany the entree and everything was yummy. We started by sharing the beetroot salad - delicious and more than enough for two. The bread with EVOO was very tasty. We had a Cosmo to start and it was delightfully elegant and good. We had a glass of wine with our meal, followed by cappuccino, which was among the best I’ve had. It was my daughter’s birthday and Jenn brought a large portion of homemade tiramisu to help us celebrate. We had great service as far as pacing of the meal and water refills. The restaurant has an open kitchen and an upscale urban vibe. We were visiting from out of town and were so pleased with our experience!

I booked online for a Saturday night at 5pm. I stated that it was for a Birthday. The restaurant is modern but lacks more decor. The walls are bare with no pictures or decor. There’s 2 small TV’s on different walls.There’s a few nice structures on the ceilings. The place looks a lot bigger on the website. The hostess seated us a a table and chairs, we then asked for a booth. The booth however was a tight squeeze. The heat felt like it was off and it was a little chilly. The server brought us the complimentary bread with a side of olive oil and balsamic for dipping. The bread was cold and as was the olive oil and balsamic. We ordered the grilled calamari, rack of lamb, spaghetti lobster and linguine preferiti novita. Also a veal dish. We all enjoyed our meal. The lobster in the shell was put on top of the spaghetti. Which should be separate because the sauce got all over the lobster making it messy. She brought the lobster cuter but didn’t bring the tiny fork. Things were lacking with the service. The server had to be reminded of the cake for the Birthday. But she was friendly and apologetic. The cake was tiramisu and it was delicious. The food was great as was the latte. I ordered the Spanish coffee and it had too much alcohol in it. But the server topped it up with more coffee. The played Italian music but it was off and on. We had a great time here.

My daughter loves Italian Food and when she goes out she loves to try new restaurants in and around North Toronto. We were 8 for dinner tonight and was very pleasantly surprised and impressed. The food was excellent as was the service. My wife had the Vitello Di Gamberetto Scaloppino (Shrimp, Scallops and Veal in a white wine lemon sauce with Parmesan Risotto) and I had Veal Gorgonzola. Some of the people we were with had Pizza and another had a steak special. Everything was incredibly good. The best thing I can say is that I can’t wait to come back and try something else on the extensive menu.

my friends linguine was pretty good. actually it was perfect. However, there were are few issues: 1. my dinner was horrible. i had the asparagus wrapped in veal serve with risoto. It was very salty. it could not be eaten (i took half of the three pieces and my friend ate the other half. We both agreed it was way too salty. I took it home to see if my family thought it was salty and they just tossed it out hahaa. 2. it is so salty that my stomach hurts and my blood pressure went crazy. it went from 124 to 165 3. the bread really sucks.

It was a very long day and eight hours straight in the car can make anyone cranky. I was lucky enough to find this spot for refreshment. Thanks TripAdvisor!!!! It was a bit weird getting to the restaurant. It is in a shopping center/strip mall of sorts. Upon entering, I was taken back by the starkness of the decor. So much so, that I asked if I was at the right place, if they were under renovation or just serving take out. I was wrong on all counts. I was quickly seated and ordered 'the kitchen sink'. I started with bruchetta. It was excellent. Fresh diced tomatoes and just enough shredded cheese. Followed a warm you up bowl of minestrone soup, filled with fresh veggies. My entree was chicken marsala with roasted potatoes and grilled vegetables plus a side of angel hair pasta with bolognase sauce. Simply delicious!! Dinner was finished off with tiramisu and cappuccino. Fantastic meal!! Shinobu took excellent care of me. She displayed an incredible patience and timed everything well. If you're in the area, make the stop!!

I was here yesterday for a baptism party and I was impressed by the menu and service. The vegan options was great and the food tasted amazing! I would definitely recommend this place to others and will come back again.

Delicious food and great customer service is what we got during our meal at this restaurant. The owner and chef actually cam to our table to ask us about our meal and tell us how he got into the restaurant business. We will be going back!

I went with my husband and my sister and her husband and 2 sisters who are good family friends and one of them is married do her husband cams as well. We all had never been to this restaurant but it was central for the 2 sisters and hubby to meet us. The service was good our waitress came around every so often and checked on us. It’s a little pricey but depending on what you order there are big portions so let me explain. On there set menu they have my hubby and the husband ordered that and the wings were almost non existent. My husband ordered the papardelle and the description that’s on the menu doesn’t describe exactly what you really get. I thought it was going to be in a white sauce with some pieces of meat in it with the pasta. What came was pasta with ground beef in a red sauce and my husband said it had onions and mushrooms in it and I didn’t taste it but he said it tasted tasteless so no flavour. My freinds husband ordered the short ribs and his plate was huge pieces of meat but I don’t know how it tasted. My sister and her husband ordered a salad, some grilled seafood and a pizza. The only thing she didn’t like was the pizza didn’t taste like it was made in the wood oven. The sisters one ordered organic chicken and the other one salmon but I don’t know what they thought. My husband got the tiramisu with his preset meal and I tried it and it was good. My brother in law ordered the cheese cake and my sister said it was good. There cheesecakes are from the cheese cake factory. It was very busy when we went but we had reservations so we were good with no waiting time.

I had their signature chicken dish and vegetables. The main was perfectly layered, nice presentation and flavour to match. The side vegetables were at the same gourmet standard. My wife's risotto was wonderful. The service was superb and welcoming.
