“This Restaurant IS A MUST!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

You will never have a meal or an experience better than at Nicola's!! Family owned operated, they prepare and cook the food fresh daily! This is the only place I can get authentic HOME MADE Italian food in Florida unless I'm at my family's house. Never ever had a bad meal and the staff is wonderful, you really feel like you are in their home!!!

“Great Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We visited this on the last night of our holiday in Florida. We should have tried it earlier. Better than eating at the usual chains. There was quite a wait for a table, even mid week, but this shows how good it is.

“A touch of Italy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

This restaurant had been recommend to us because we enjoy veal. The veal was excellent, unfortunately little alternative to pasta. We found the menu rather limited. Excellent garlic knots, but make sure you & your partner share them, as they are dripping in garlic.

“Excellent food and good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Four of us each had a different dish we all rated our dining experience between 4.5 and 5.0 on a scale of 1 to 5. Our server was prompt and courteous. The garlic toast "bites" were delicious as were our entrees. The homemade cannoli was excellent.
