If you're going out for a dinner for 2, sharing an app, salad, and entree is the perfect amount of food, and you get to taste multiple delicious dishes! Beautiful place for a date with awesome food and an extensive wine, beer & cocktail list.

Make sure you read the fine print on the groupon. You have to go to the restaurant, get a gift card and wait a day or two until you can use it!

Didn't care for the baked clams. Mushroom truffle pizza was good. Had to keep looking for our waiter.

The food was good. They didn't honor the gift card because they claimed I had to redeem it before coming into the restaurant to eat. So I paid for my meal and then they came me the gift card, so now I have to go back to use. Very slick on their part.

Saturday night my wife and I went to the restaurant for a 7:45 reservation all went well. We were seated it a little corner table in the front section, with a table for 4 behind us with 2 empty seats, and we were on the bench seats. My brother called and wanted me to meet him and his wife for dinner. I told him to meet us here it would be tight but we would survive. I asked the waiter, who said he would get us another table if possible. I told him no, can you just take the empty chair from the table behind us, my wife moved next to me and I turned our little table we had the 2 seats. My brother showed up and they said they couldn't do it because the table behind us had a reservation for 4 and they needed the chair. The hostess stood watching to make sure they didn't sit. I was angry but ok we didn't have a reservation for 4. The waiter who was great apologized and could not believe the situation either. The hostess then returns and seats 2 people at the table for 4 and the seat remained empty. The manager looked from a distance but never came over. At that point I canceled the rest of my order, paid my bill and went to leave. When I we were leaving I stopped at the desk to get my 100 gift certificate which is what the groupon is. When Scott, a different manger asked me how it was I told him what happened he seamed very concerned and apologized saying he knew nothing about it but would make it up to me and gave me his card. I can't believe the owners were involved because we go to Waterzooi all the time and never have a problem. Though greatly disappointed the food that we did eat was excellent. I will go back with my brother in a few weeks and hopefully change my opinion.

Make sure you redeem the print out for a gift card (fine print). I made this mistake and wound up paying out of pocket.

From Our Editors

The oenophiles behind Novità Wine Bar and Trattoria are so passionate about wine that they had a digital, temperature-controlled wine-serving system custom built for them in Australia. It's given their bar the ability to serve 100 wines from around the world by the glass on any given day. Because of the system's ability to dole out 1/2-ounce tastes, 3.5-ounce pours, and 6-ounce full pours, it allows patrons to sample wines they might normally avoid due to their high bottle prices.

Wine may be what Novità specializes in, but executive chef Ed Davis doesn't let it overshadow the food. He and his team whip up Naples-style pizzas and pastas topped with Maine lobster or stuffed with creamy burrata cheese. And for brunch, there's cappuccino french toast, a tastier option than the more traditional Italian breakfast dish of pancakes covered in marinara sauce.
