Nice place hope to come back.

We wanted pizza to go and ordered from Nicola's. The staff was very friendly and the pizza was delicious. Glad we gave them a try. Hope to eat here again if we come back to this area of FL.

We were in the mood for Italian food. Being from the Northeast, we have high expectations when it comes to Italian food, so we were a bit disappointed that Nicola's eggplant parmigiana and the eggplant rollantini were not as flavorful as they should have been. It just didn't make us say yum. It was not bad, just not great. The... More

One of our favorites here in Florida! Terrific menu and specials are marvelous. Never disappointed! Fresh ingredients and very fine service by friendly servers. Their bread is the BEST! Made there by the fine staff. Fun place that makes one happy to be there! During the season can be crowded but staff tries to move things along and make room... More

Went with friends who love this restaurant. I love Italian food and I was disappointed. I ordered the fettuccine alfredo. My favorite. When i got it I thought I got soup. The sauce was way to much and too runny. Very few noodles. Had to use a spoon and the sauce taste was so so. From what I saw of... More

All home cooked meals by a lady from Italy who give you plenty and the food and wait staff are excellent. Everyone get's her home made garlic butter rolls that are to die for.

Summer months a Wednesday special is Chef Hans German foods. Last night one of them was Saurbraten. His presentation was beautifully sliced beef with the tangy gravy and perfect spaetzle with red cabbage...good to the last bite! Others had Italian specialties veal parm, chicken parm and lasagna...we finished with the best chocolate mousse I have every tasted...from start to finish... More

We went with friends and we all ordered something different. They start you off with a bowl of garlic bread bites.... yum! We shared the carpaccio for an appetizer and it was great. The manicotti I had was the best I've ever had in a restaurant. Their sauce is perfect. Other meals (which I tasted) were: ravioli, gnocchi, and mahi... More

I love well-run mom and pop restaurants with excellent food and this is one of them. The place is fairly small, modestly decorated, VERY reasonably priced, has excellent service and because it's so good it's always crowded around dinner time...especially during the season! For dinner they of course specialize in homemade Italian selections which are excellent and the garlic bread... More

Just had a great meal there tonight. Unfortunately our last night in this area otherwise we would be back. OH had the lasagne and said it was excellent. I had the chicken parmigiana and it was sooo delicious. No room for desert. Meal comes with a small salad and garlic knots. Yummy. Great service and no waiting.
