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!

Visiting New England with friends we came across Nicolas by chance. Set on the ground floor of an office building the interior comes alive with an open kitchen and lively atmosphere. Good Italian menu with varied size portions! Always a danger in the US with their mega plates! Very friendly and helpful staff. Basic wine list. Certainly worth a visit

A very attractive restaurant in a rather unlikely setting. The food is cooked well and the menu is interesting; the atmosphere is lively, welcoming and bright. On our first visit the air-conditioning was set way too low; on our second visit it was fine; so not really a complaint! The bill is presented in a booklet about famous artists; a... More

First off, the food was fabulous. I had the chicken marsala, and my husband had some sort of beef tenderloin which he raved about. The service was good, the atmosphere lovely. Now the down side. I have Celiac disease and cannot eat gluten. Unfortunately, 2 hours after returning home, I was feeling pretty lousy. I'm guessing that the food itself... More

The two of us had different meals and were very impressed.Terrific pasta and one of the best breaded chicken meals I've ever had. Good service as well. We'll definitely be back.
