Description: There���s something rather special about Nicolini���s that can���t quite be put into words. You���ve got to go there to know what we mean. It has the relaxed and elegant look of a restaurant that doesn���t need to try too hard��� because it doesn���t. Having been part of Leamington Spa���s pretty Victorian Parade for over 25 years, this family-run Italian gem is a fully-established member of Warwickshire���s top restaurant set. Night after night chef Vincello Cardinali produces wonderful dishes ��� vegetarian tortellini (starter), his famous rack of lamb, veal in a lobster cream sauce... Daily specials not only offer regulars a new sensation but give Vincello the opportunity to set his gifted imagination free. Everyone���s a winner. Manager Franco and daughter Cassandra offer superb service with a smile.

Had lunch here and it is has a very good location . Typical Italian speed but food was good and freshly cooked. We would definitely return for both another lunch or evening meal any time!

Décor is a little tired but staff very friendly. We only had a light lunch but the soup was home made and very tasty.

The food was incredibly nicely cooked, and there were good sized portions - something that doesn't always happen in an expensive restaurant. We used a Taste card, so the value was excellent (2 for 1 main courses). I would definitely recommend Nicolinis to someone looking for an especially nice meal with friendly service.

This was our second visit but a first for our friends. Could not fault the steak at all, cooked to perfection. Lovely plum tart for dessert. The only downside was the choice of wine by the glass, very limited.

Took my parents to this restaurant having not tried it before and found it to be very nice. Decor could use a little updating but food was delicious and staff were very friendly. Would definitely go here again.

The food was fantastic at this lovely restaurant. Pasta (tortellini) was lovely and thin and the sauce, delicious. Smoked fish was also fab. Recommended to anyone who loves a traditional Italian dining experience.

Food is excellent. If you are not a regular expect to get pushed into a cramped area or be in the middle of everything and constantly been pushed. Food is reasonably priced and drinks are expensive. Service used to be excellent but on this oc casino was pretty poor.

Initial greeting was unfriendly! Prawn cocktail's tiny shrimps seemed to have just come out of the freezer..watery, icy cold and tasteless. My wife's calamari no better..vastly overpriced at £6.95 for 5 deep-fried batter rings. My fillet steak rossini was excellent /couldn't be faulted. Pasta overcooked in my wife's squid ink linguine, tomato sauce too creamy / tasteless and prawns obviously... More

I would give this restaurant 3.5 out of 5 if TripAdvisor allowed. It is better than average, and it is good but not very good. We had lunch. Some of the food was very good ( tortellini ), and the mains were enjoyable but a bit expensive ( medallions of beef at £15.50 ). Not a strong recommendation from us,... More
