Late lunch today. Not crowded at all although I have heard it is difficult to get in at night , no reservations taken but a call ahead list. Food was excellent, veal piccata and shrimp scampi. Salad a little small but very fresh and house dressing very good. Cannoli was delicious. Restaurant very clean, restroom very clean.

Almost drove by Nicola's but am glad we didn't. We hadn't read anything about this place but it was a pleasant surprise. My friend had ziti with meat sauce and I had spaghetti and meatball, lunch size. Perfect size and great Garlic knots. Cheap and good.

It sure looks like a family owned business- half the staff had a family resemblance. Busy place. Call ahead 20 minutes and get put on the list. No reservations. A warning to the hard of hearing- noise level is somewhat high. My spouse and I got along if we both leaned forward and talked. But my hearing is far from... More

I appreciate good Italian food. Nicola's presented perhaps the best veal cutlet dinner I have ever had. Cut it with a fork! The sauce was also very good. Will be returning again. Well Done!

We had 4 excellent meals: Baked Raviolli, Lasagna, Ziti and meatballs and Chicken Francaise. Although we had a 35 minute wait to be seated, it was worth it. The service was good and the prices are reasonable.

Went to Nicola's for dinner and the parking lot was full. My husband said that we were in for quite a wait. Was pleasantly surprised when we were putting our name in that the hostess said, "Right this way." The food was delicious. I had linguini clam vongole and my husband had veal parmigiana. We definitely will return for some... More

Their soup and entrees are are amazingly good! Pasta is perfect. The homemade chicken soup is delicious. It is not real big on the inside but they have outdoor seating also. Their home made garlic knots come with every meal and taste awesome.
