Quaint; family owned; great service

Nicoletti's is a nice Italian restaurant when you want a break from chain dining without breaking the bank. It is not the most affordable menu, but the cozy atmosphere and family owned experience is worth it. We always get great service from every employee and the food is tasty!

We were looking for a convenient place to meet a family member from out of town, saw the reviews for this restaurant and decided to try it. I had lasagna, my husband had chicken fettuccini and so did our family member. I also had a salad which was the best part of the meal. The pasta was almost not edible.... More

Nicoletti's is my family's go-to restaurant! My favorite dishes are the chicken spiedini, shrimp scampi, and any of the filets. The portions are extremely generous and the sides are amazing! (Try the italian potatoes). Of course, for a lighter meal, the St Louis salad is amazing. Cheryl and Mike are the most down to earth, friendly people i have encountered.... More

The pasta sauce is very sweet and good. It is a quaint place with good service. I enjoyed the mostaccioli. The sauce is sweeter than most red sauces and very good. The prices were reasonable.

It has been a while since I was at Nicoletti's, but it was the one at Big Bend and Meramec. The meal was expensive with only mid-grade quality

I have been dinning at Nicoletti's since I was a teen. I love their pasta Tutto Mare! I've tried it other places and I can honestly say it's one of the best I have ever had. The house salad dressing is awesome so I highly recommend getting a salad. The pizza is thin crust with provel cheese (St. Louis style)... More

This is a favorite restaurant of my daughter and son-in-law, and since they moved from the St. Louis area, it is on their "must do" list when they are in town. To celebrate a birthday, six of us went there for an early reservation dinner. Three guests ordered different pasta dishes and were very happy with their choice. Two had... More

We come here frequently for carry out - pasta and salad best! Restaurant is old school casual which I like after long day at work. Service is fast and all sweet. Nice night out with family and pricing very fair with huge servings - we always have extra for second meal! Yummy'

Nicoletti's has long been one of our go-to places for good pasta and they never disappoint. Understand that this is a neighborhood restaurant in a strip mall. The decor is exactly what you'd expect for such a location, not fancy but quite appropriate. The wait staff is always efficient and pleasant. The prices are reasonable. This is one of those... More
