Went to Novaro's my first night in Launceston as this was the only night i could get in when i tried to book.I had a lovely meal with a friend. We started with the scallops that were the highlight so fresh and just cooked to perfection. For the main i had prawns and my friend had the mixed seafood both meals were wonderful. Prices were high the service was good although i dont understand why you have 3 different people serving you it doesnt help anything I feel. And when i was there the weather was quiet hot and there was no airconditioner on which made the temperature uncomfortable. So yes food great, prices high, atmosphere warm, service good but keep one staff per table would make for a better connection.

A fantastic meal and great service last night for our wine club dinner. Thanks to Sara, Nick and staff. Hard to pick a favourite but the scallops go a lot of votes
