Four of us went for lunch--NOT in "season." The overworked server tried her hardest but the kitchen must be incompetent. Our drinks came promptly, ice tea & cokes. Food came out one person at a time over a 15 minute period from first to last, except my eggplant parm sandwich which never arrived. My buddies were done eating so I... More

Had another awesome dinner from here. Every time we go it is always fresh and hot even when we get it to go. This place is a must if you are in the area. Please call ahead for days they are closed

I went to Nicola's back in October 2014 for late lunch/early dinner with my dad. (I had gotten so busy that I forgot to post a review). This lunch date was the last time I would see my Dad as he recently past away. Nicola's will hold this very special memory for me now. We had iced teas (sweet or... More

Staying on Boca Grande for a week and and needed a break from tourist food. We decided to venture off the island and stumbled upon this Italian gem. If you like Italian then this is the place to go. I had the calamari and linguini, out of this world. Highly recommend if you are vacationing down here. To top it... More

Food and service excellent. Spaghetti Rapini, and Rollatini Eggplant were entrees we enjoyed. Garlic knots are a must!! Prices were more than reasonable.

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
