The food is always amazing!

We have had many wonderful dinners on several occasions, and this time was no exception. Highly recommended.

The décor is lovely, very warm and inviting. Service excellent!! Food consistently good, though sometimes a little too highly salted for my taste, but generally very good. The desserts are great, esp the chocolate mousse, which is fantastic! The bar area is also lovely, it is very nice to get there early and have a drink at the bar, and... More

Friendly attentive staff, great food and drinks. Pleasant atmosphere, able to view chef cooking your meal with tempting smells wafting into dining room. Never had a bad meal and whenever in town, make it a point to stop in for a meal.

I came a month ago and the new bartender ( I sat in the bar ), was great. Knowledgeable with the various beer menu and pleasant. I had... More

This is a nice restaurant with very attentive service. The décor is very pleasant and there is a good atmosphere. We had very good Arancini in tomato and caper sauce ($9). For main we had Risotto with chicken and peppers which was nice but the portion was small for the price of $26. The pepperoni pizza was ok but was... More

The food was great, menu had lots of choices, service was wonderful. They did loose our reservation but table was available. Set back off the main road in business building but once you get in the decor is beautiful. Open kitchen and decent sized bar. They do need more space for coats thought but a definite must go for some... More

Six of us shared a table in the Lounge area near the music, having a 9:00 pm reservation. It was the perfect amount of time for a relaxed meal, a little dancing and then fun time mixing with the band and others in the Lounge. We brought along hats and noise makers for us and many others and this certainly... More

We had a wonderful meal at Nicola's and enjoyed their creative menu and delicious food. The menu offers many choices and there were additional nightly specials as well. The food was creatively prepared yet they were good, solid options - not anything too far out or eclectic - which we liked. Our server was delightful and when our drinks took... More

Interesting, unusual menu... Gorgonzola Salad to start, Veal in tasty sauce, Creme Brulee and ice cream, easy parking but we had difficulty in finding the entrance and that was before we had wine!
