Dinner on Friday night required 30 minute wait, which we didn't regret. Sampled 6 different entrees. While all were thoroughly enjoyed, the mussels were spectacular. Service was personal, friendly, and efficient. The menu is substantial and looks worthy of further exploration. We will return.

A small and intimate restaurant located off Gilman in Issaquah. The patio is great for dining when the weather is right. Nicely executed traditional Italian food, delicious. Decent wine menu. A friendly and attentive staff. A great place for a family dinner or to bring your SO.

Just a wonderful place for either a romantic dinner, business or family meal. Liberal use of Marsala wine and Mascarpone cheese. I love the Cioppino seafood soup but order it over a bed of angel hair. My wife always orders the Penne Sovietche with the vodka mascarpone sauce and prawns. The Spaghetti Siracuso (sp?) is also great but rather heavy.... More

We stopped for lunch on a weekday at 11:30. There was no one else eating at that time. By the time we left an hour later there was still no one eating there. If there were working people out to lunch in town, they were wise to not go to Nicolino's. The service was exceptionally slow. The food was delicious,... More

We enjoyed a nice dinner here before attending a play. Nicolino is located in Gilman Village, a charming place To visit. Our menu choices were delicious and the service was very good. This is a small, charming Italian restaurant with a very nice staff.

Nicolino is not only a fun place for an intimate meal with a loved one, but the servers, bartenders and cooks are the sweetest people you'll meet. My family has lived down the street from Nicolino for about 5 years and always choose Nicoino when we want something really, really, really delicious. The authentic Italian food is not just food,...

Lovely small intimate restaurant in Gilman Village. The menu is authentic Italian and all the dishes we have tried so far have been DELICIOUS. Their salted caramel panacotta is to die for!! Very friendly welcoming staff. This is not a restaurant for a quick meal - come here to spend the evening enjoying the company and the food, European style!... More

Nicolino feels like a bistro in Europe. The tables are small and intimate. There's a beautiful mural on the wall. When the weather is nice, the ristorante has a great brick patio on which to dine. The place possesses a lot of charm. The wait staff is very friendly and gives you space if you need it for conversation or... More

This place is absolutely wonderful. The atmosphere is incredibly romantic and my husband and I come here every year on our anniversary. The food is to die for and the waitstaff is welcoming. I would highly recommend this restaurant to any lovebirds out there!

Excellent wine, food and service. Romantic and cozy but very small so make reservations! Their seafood is excellent and so is their pasta. They have a very good wine list for such a small place.
