Nice Resturant

We went here with another couple for dinner. The restaurant was nice. It was easy to speak with each other in our booth. Although the menu seems to have a lot to choose from, I found it somewhat lacking. The salad was good and my meal was good as well. Nothing overly special though. I was... read more

Not sure if they changed the chef, the food was very disappointing and while we were eating there 2 other tables complained about there food being overcooked and had to return it. Something is not right here. The place was also pretty empty for a Friday night.

Shops of Legacy is naturally a good surrounding this restaurant benefits from. The ambiance at Nicola's is good. However, the food was mediocre at best. I agree with remarks on this site from other customers that the food comes out cold. For a place and people in the hospitality business, Nicola's was very disappointing. If you are going as a...

A recent visit to this popular establishment in the Shops of Legacy left us more than a little disappointed. While the service was attentive and the atmosphere beautiful, the food was average at best. The apps and entrees did not come out hot and the wine by the glass "pour" was stingy. Great location but would try other restaurants in... More

I enjoyed my meal at Nicola's. Being an Italian restaurant, I intended to go with a pasta entree, however, the fish special (Halibut) sounded too good to pass up. My choice was a good one. The fish was prepared perfectly. The asparagus was perfect as well and the mashed potatoes were also delicious. In a nod to the Italian menu,... More

An upper Italian with luxurious décor inside. A nice bar inside and out with couches for a relaxed atmosphere while taking in the crowd at Shops of Legacy.

Dine al fresco on the front walkway and the show never stops. Fantastic people, unbelievable automobiles passing by and oh yes, the meal was wonderful. A full menu. When in Plano, Nicola

I was here with a private party and really enjoyed the food. It's hard to find decent Italian in Texas, especially if you are from NY but this place has it down. I could have made a meal from the appetizers alone. So darn good. Two story, open ceilings so can be a little noisy but over look that and... More

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!
