We stopped at Nicoletta's for dinner on the recommendation of our innkeeper during a brief stay in Cooperstown. Great Italian cuisine with wonderful and friendly service! My tortellini with sausage and peppers was perfect and my husband swears their linguini with clams was the best he's ever had. We would return definitely to Nicoletta's on our next visit to Cooperstown.

Nicoletta's has a fairly traditional menu, with at least one item for everyone. The menu could stand to be a little broader, though I recognize that expansion of the menu can have unintended consequences. At least one more good vegetarian item would be a great addition, though, and perhaps a few more wine-by-the glass options. The restaurant honored our reservation... More

Charming café right on Main St., across the street from the Baseball Heroes Wax Museum, serving a large selection of Italian specialties. I didn't feel very hungry for our early, pre-performance dinner, so I only ordered an entrée, the Veal Marsala with mushrooms. I was expecting two or three small pieces of veal with a few slices of mushroom, but... More

After a couple of days eating quick easy foods in Cooperstown I decided to have a real meal. I am so glad that we did! Great food, fantastic service, and just an all around pleasant experience. Not to mention we ate directly after the Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony concluded. Very busy weekend in town and yet the food... More

If you love Italian food this is the place to go. Food was excellent and more than enough.The ravioli was made on site. Eggplant was thin and very flavorful. The red sauce was very good! Staff was extremely pleasant. The ambiance was relaxing and had a European feel.

Walked in on a Saturday night with no reservation, we were seated promptly. Service here was top-notch. We had fried artichoke appetizer, which was very tasty. We both ordered lasagna which was a tad different then we are used to eating, but very good. Portions were huge. Neither of us could finish our dinners. Bread was delicious and served warm.... More

This restaurant is very good verging on excellent. My wife was very happy with her eggplant parmigiano; I loved the scallops diavolo. We shared some very fine cheese cake for dessert. I had a glass of Ommegang Wit, brewed locally, which was perfect with my fairly spicy main course. We'll go again!
