This place is by far the best Italian restaurant I have ever been to. The food is fresh and made from scratch. The waitress told us that Tina the owner personally makes all of the dishes. I had the manicotti which was excellent. Hubby had the veal parmesan which is to absolutely delicious. The garlic knots excellent. We did not... More

Nicola's is probably the best Italian food that we have eaten in SW Florida. Instead of the typical bread or rolls, they serve excellent fresh baked garlic knots. We had veal parmesan and eggplant parmesan. Both meals were excellent. The service was also quite good. The meals are large enough that we took left overs home for lunch. A relaxed... More

We got takeout from Nicola's and it ws very good. We tried this reastaurant based on the recommendation of a relative. The reason I say it is popular is all teh people waiting to get a table and hearing some of tehm say they eat there once or twice a week when they are here (snow birds). The only disappointment...

I've probably been to every restaurant in Englewood, and I must say, Nicola's is, hands down, one of the best restaurants (food wise) I've ever been to. Am I an Italian lover - not really, but when the mood strikes me for Italian, Nicola's is my choice. Now you're probably saying, well, if she is not an Italian lover, what... More

We ate at Nicola's last year when on vacation and had to return this year as we were so impressed. Food. Again at a very good standard. We ordered 2 starters for the 3 of us but the waitress suggested that we didn't want that much food and she was correct. Indeed we didn't really need any starter (we had... More

Great food with many choices. Good service but get there early if you want to avoid the crowd. Our party of six ordered different items on the menu and all were greatly satisfied.

The calamari appetizer was small for the price, taste was decent but I've had better.. Wonderful dinner potions and cooked to perfection of chicken parm and the chicken that comes with broccoli and cheese. Garlic knots are as good as they were years ago. Side salad was nice also.
