Had an excellent evening meal - both having the lamb chop special served up in a very Mediterranean way - followed by an awesome desert. The service was first class, the atmosphere great made even nicer when the owner circulated the room to chat to her customers. The restaurant is not that large so it may be advisable to reserve...

Our waitress originally from NY is A #1 with this Red Sox fan. This place is immaculate! Clean and pristine. The food was excellent, we had subs... More

We visited here for dinner with some friends who have been fans of this place for many years. We got there a bit early and split a crispy mound of calamari -- very good. Then our friends arrived and we ordered a carafe of Lambrusco (a bit sweet, even for Lambrusco). Since they've been raving about the lasagna, that's what... More

Nicola's has solidly good Italian food, I say this because it as good as it gets with Nonna. They make a great effort at providing good Italian food and at a reasonable price. It is always busy so the food turns over and is fresh. The wait staff is attentive and friendly. When in Englewood try it!

stumbled on Nicola's after arriving late in Rotonda West. The garlic knots were great, and the lasagna was enough for 2 meals. Great blend of favors in the past. Service was excellent and capers added to the bruschetta was a nice touch. Highly recommended and we will return.

Every time we come to Englewood, we have dinner here. The food is always fresh and the staff is very friendly. The Portion size is large and we always take leftovers home. The garlic knots are truly for the garlic lovers! Every dish we have tried is excellent and the tiramisu for dessert is home made and large enough that... More

Came across this restaurant and decided to try it out. Me and husband ordered pizza and a salad and this was probably the top 10 worst pizzas I've ever had. Service was however good. The atmosphere needs some updating looks very old and dingy. Will I come back? Probably not.
