We got a pizza to go so we would eat at Youngberg Hill Inn where we were staying. Pizza was really tasty and fresh. Service while we waited was attentive. Would definitely go back.

We had a pasta that had crisp, fresh English peas in it, so creamy and delicious! I don't remember the rest of the ingredients but it was over the top! The owner/manager, not sure his actual post, but he seemed to be doing everything, helped us pick a bottle of wine. We didn't like the first one, and he had... More

This was our first visit to Nick's, but it's been around, and it consistently gets recommended. There's a good reason -- the food is great, the service is friendly and professional, the space is nice. We were only there for lunch, and we hope to go back soon for dinner (especially because we did not order the meatballs). All we... More

Nice atmosphere and obviously popular restaurant. My wife loved her pasta, my pizza was average. Service was friendly, but slow and not very attentive.

Nick's was recommended to us and although no table was immediately available we did get one an hour later. Time for a another wander around the town. The lesson is that it is worth booking here even mid week. Service was good and the food of good quality with some interesting combinations on the menu. The pizza was large but... More

In the heart of wine country, downtown McMinville's three blocks or so is filled with cute restaurants. Nick's is small and intimate with a nice selection of Italian food. We had a very unusual minestrone soup and a Gorgonzola, pear and carmelized onion pizza that was the best I've had. Excellent place to spend a rainy afternoon.

After suffering through a few sub standard meals in the Willamette Valley our night at Nick's was a treat. We had great professional service. Meatball appetizer was perfect, pasta great and clams terrific. Wonderful mature woman server laughed with us about servers asking if "all the favors are to your liking?" We made an Open Table reservation- there are just... More

Family took us here for dinner, service was top notch and the food was phenomenal. They really capture the palette with their dishes.
