We (mid-'60's couple, non-snob foodies) ate here on a Friday night in September with our three grandsons, ages 10-14. We couldn't have had more fun. Service was attentive but not overbearing, food was very high quality, and very fairly priced. Cloth napkins and tablecloths. Classy but not pretentious. Good wine list without requiring a second mortgage to get something decent.... More

We were walking down Main Street in Cooperstown looking for a place to have dinner. Two gentlemen opened the door to Nicoletta's and it was love at fist sniff. The aroma coming out of the front door was so enticing we could not resist going inside. The restaurant is in an old "skinny" building that runs front to back. The... More

Dinning in this restaurant is like being in Italy. Comfortable, beautiful décor, excellent service and authentic Italian food. We went here with friends and each of us had a fantastic dinner, Lobster Ravioli, Lasagna, Pasta with Clams and Veal Saltimbocca, along with great appetizers. We thought we were back in Italy when we walked through the doors. This is a... More

The service was very good. The lasagna was a huge portion. The ambiance inside the restaurant is nil.

The restaurant was very comfortable with a staff that made you feel very comfortable and gave excellent service. The food was freshly prepared. The servings were ample and the food was excellent. Would return.

Intimate, dimly lit, comfortable. Loved it! Our meals were outstanding (I had the ravioli with eggplant) as was the choice of wine that we ordered. The service was excellent and friendly. To end the night the Tiramisu was beyond delicious! A must visit restaurant when you're in Cooperstown.

While the wines by the glass were not particularly good, the fried artichoke appetizer was great, lightly breaded and very tasty. The eggplant parmesan with a side of homemade Italian sausage and spaghetti was very tasty with fresh and vibrant flavors. Finally the tiramisu was well above average, a little sweeter than I find in Italy, but very good for... More

Contrary to those who say there are no good restaurants in downtown Cooperstown, Nicoletta's is exemplary. Very good Italian cuisine. Pleasant and attentive waitstaff. Great salmon with fresh veggies, great ravioli over eggplant cutlets. Good size portions. Definitely a dinner destination.

This is THE italian restaurant in town. Sure there is another, but this is the best. I've been a local for over 10 years and this is my choice. Excellent food. Excellent wait staff. Probably worth making reservations in the Summer for dinner. Otherwise, you can usually walk in. I've had most things on the menu or at least tried... More

Read many of the reviews. Ok this isn't the best Italian food you will ever eat, but it's above average. Our dinners and apps were great, wine was inexpensive and people were so nice. We mixed up our reservations and came a day early and they were very accomodating. Cooperstown doesn't have that many upscale restaurants so this is one... More
