Think of your favorite restaurant. What image leaps into your mind at the thought of it?
Is it a particular dish? A current favorite or a treasured bite from years gone by? Was it the celebration of an occasion? The place you and your special someone toasted life's milestones or the actual table you occupied on your first "real" date? Is it the restaurant's preservation of place or its rich history? Or does a specific face come to mind?
Nuvolari's, a favorite of many Old Mandeville diners on the North Shore, has been checking all of those boxes for 34 years.Published August 29, 2017 (see complete article nola.com)

One of our favorite restaurants - good food, excellent service, romantic atmosphere - great for special occasions or entertaining. The atmosphere in the bar is a major asset to the restaurant. We have thought of other restaurants for our anniversary but we always return to Nuvolari’s and have never been disappointed.

Nice ambiance, great food, great service, need I say more! This was a last minute recommendation for a short stay in Mandeville. I had pan seared fish and my wife had flank steak and my wife made me eat the carot cake!! All delicious. I highly recommend anyone near Mandeville to give this restaurant a try. There is nothing not to like.

Great Food, Service & Atmosphere
From walking in the door until the check was paid Service was prompt and quite efficient. The food was fresh and tasty; the atmosphere warm and inviting. Going out to eat for us is a treat, and Nuvolari’s is one of our first choices for celebrations. But whether for special occasions or just eating out on a work night, Nuvolari’s is a great place to head.
