Nicolina looks like the usual pizza- restaurant place from the outside, but inside it's extremely attractive and appealing. Their menu is varied and our party of eight had ordered their chicken cacciatore, beef braciole, lasagna, penne with vegetables, and pasta with clam sauce. Everyone enjoyed their entree which included a salad with a lovely light dressing. We were there on... More

Out of the blue, my wife and I had dinner here at this Italian restaurant this evening and were VERY pleasantly surprised. We were in the mood to try a restaurant in town we hadn't visited yet and I'm glad we did. The outside is very deceiving. Its located in a small shopping center and we didn't know what to... More

Almost hate to give this an excellent review for selfish reasons - they're getting busy, and soon it will be hard to get in. But the truth is this is an excellent place, consistently turning out fantastic meals in a very pleasant setting, at reasonable prices. Don't let the shopping center location put you off. The decor is way above... More

We really enjoy eating at Nicolina's. The food is very good and the restaurant is very nice. Service has always been great. We have eaten anything from pasta, burgers, pizza and sandwiches. You can't go wrong with anything. It's all good. Please try eating at a nice local restaurant rather than a chain. The food and service are always much... More

Sunday, August 11, 2013 After stopping in on a few occasions for a “slice”, we decided to try NICOLINAS for dinner. Not once, not twice, but we have been back to this establishment for dinner 3 times in the past 2 months for dinner. On our first stop for dinner, we could not believe that NICOLINAS was basically empty. We... More

We are here quite often and always have a good experience. The place has really nice ambiance and it is BYOB. Their pasta and sauces are good and the eggplant parm. is very good, very thinly sliced and layered in a square shape. We enjoy the salad which has a nice variety - suggest you add one hot pepper per... More

Went with friends from the area for an early dinner. The food was great; the specials were very good at a great price. The room was very nice. The only issue was the wait staff was not very professional. Will go again when we are in the area

We're new to this area of NJ and are trying to find comfortable and not over-priced places to eat. This restaurant is easy to spot in the mall directly across from the Americana Diner on Rt 130. Nicolinas is a great local restaurant. Good food and great service. Can't ask for more than that. We had the veal parmigiana and... More

We are transplants from New York. I couldn't seem to find good pizza in NJ until Nicolina's. The pizza is delish! The food is actually really good. Its a great local restaurant.

This review concerns the subs\heros\grinders only, if you want to know what the dinner food is about, see another review. Around the corner from Nocolina is a fresh food stand, maybe that is why the ingredients of my cheese-steak sub, or my wife's vegetarian sub tasted so fresh. Both were swaddled with very thick layers, very fresh of mozzarella, very... More
