OMG... absolutley exquisite! Best food ever!

Appetizer: The tortellini melts in your mouth, highlighted with tasty pork belly and accented with fresh basil... just a delight of wonderful flavors and textures. The cod was seasoned and cooked to perfection... also melts in your mouth. It was offered with a mushroom, sundried tomato and olive... read more

Nicola's is a bright space with a display kitchen and a wall of windows just off Main street in Keene. It is located off of the lobby of an office building on the first floor - so don't be put off by the entrance! The menu was fairly diverse, and there are daily specials across entree classes. I chose the... More

The food and service at Nicola's never disappoint. I have had the pleasure of dining at Nicola's many times for both business and pleasure and it is always delicious.

Newly relocated to the Keene area, I was anxious to try out this place. I sat at the bar for my meal on a Friday night and was greeted warmly by the bartender (Josh?). He was a great host. I started with a glass of Montepulciano and the calamari which was some of the best I have had (and I'm... More

This was our second time at Nicola's, we went back because we had excellent food, and particularly excellent service the first time. So we knew that it was possible to have a fabulous meal at Nicola's, and that high standards must be important there. This more recent meal, however, was a let down because we spent far too much time... More

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 travel a lot for business and tonight is much the same . I stay at the marriott property next door and this restaurant is very pleasant and convenient to walk to. 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
