Just a sad heads up - Nicchio's has closed up shop! If anyone knows if they are opening up again please let us know...they were sooooooooo good. Matisse has taken their site over ... Good restaurant but NOT Nicchio's. Matisse lost their place in Sandy so it is a good thing they are open again but just wish it wasn't... More

This is a great restaurant and a true asset to Belmar. We were greeted at our table by Carl the manager who was a true gentleman and checked back a few times to make sure everything was OK. Great food, great service great location.

My husband enjoyed a delicious dinner at Nicchios. We are from Brookkyn where there are many Italian restaurants and we would classify Nicchios just as good. With that said, we totally enjoyed our evening there and were pleasantly surprised at the outcome.

I'm all for trying new restaurants at any time of year, especially during the end of year holidays, but sometimes a familiar favorite is a safer bet. We went here with another family that at least the adults had been here before. Walking in the door was an impressive site of a bustling bar and restaurant scene, which alludes to,... More

For a New Jersey Shore restaurant, I must admit the food can rival some of my favorite Brooklyn places. New chef has the gravy dead on. The sangria is a must try. There are some excellent Brunello wines here as well. Kudos to this chef! Class act!

My wife and I are always looking for different places to enjoy the atmosphere and appetizers. Nicchio is our favorite! Try the Vongole or the house sliders. Both the bar and appetizer menus are so different as to make them unique. Your bartenders, Steve & Cammy, make you feel right at home. Great place!

From the moment you walk in the place is bustling; a vibrant bar if you're just there to watch the sports channels; live music; and a dining room complete with white linen table clothes. Been there twice and the food is excellent. Share your own thoughts with the chef and they'll prepare it to your liking. Reservations through Open Table... More

Food was very good, dining room was attractive, cocktails were perfect and service was good. We came at 7 on a Thursday night and were greeted with a blast of over amplified "music" as we walked in the front door. We requested a table as far away as possible from these two noise generators and we were seated at a... More

Went for their Tuesday nite pasta special. Limited choices but good food and atmosphere. Regular price items a little high in my opinion.

Took 4 friends for early dinner on a Saturday night. Restaurant was busy but not full. Service was pleasant but slow and took three requests for seltzer and bread. Pasta fasouli was a tomato based minestrone (without vegetables) a couple of beans and a spoon of pasta. Definitely not for pasta fasouli lovers.My friend liked the fried soft shell crab... More
