My wife and I frequent Nicola's on special occasions. Our favorite dish is the pumpkin ravioli and the beet salad. The chocolate (Nutella) dessert and strong coffee are a perfect finishing touch. Kristen is our favorite server, always with a smile and great attitude. We'll be back soon!

We've been here many times and were never disappointed. The atmosphere is much better than the TripAdvisor photo suggests. There are various types of seating, all good. The place gives you a warm feeling, and the food is top-notch. This visit we caught a movie at the Angelika Theater next door and stopped in afterwards, without reservations. We sat in... More

Loved the atmosphere...a quaint, curtained booth for a date night. Beautiful setting...food tops. Servings large...Texas style so next time would share. Salad...spinach with crisp pecans and dates...awesome. Overall its a winner.

We have frequented Nicola's since it opened and their food and service is consistently top notch. Great service and located in the beautiful Shops of Legacy this restaurant makes their own fresh pasta noodles and has a great ambiance. Nice wine selection and everything from their many pasta dishes to the Chilean Sea Bass is excellent. Sit outside on the... More

This is the Italian place in the metroplex. I don't think there is another contender that is particularly close. I've always been hesitant, as a born-and-raised Cleveland Italian to try the Italian food down here -- but this place shuts. it. down. We went here on a recommendation from a neighbor and I had only moderate expectations - but we... More

Service was very good. The flat bread was yummy and a large portion. The second time I went and had the swordfish special which was terrific!
