Ordered out last month - spaghetti was dry, hardly any sauce I couldn't finish it. My bf ordered the veal parm he loved his. The lady that checked us out however was super nice and friendly. It just so happens that every time we try to go here, it's never open. Like tonight, gone until August 18th. :/

We have a tradition of visiting Nicolas every year while on vacation in the area. The food is delicious, family atmosphere, friendly staff. It wouldn't be a successful vacation without Nocolas.

You know a restaurant is great when it's jammin' in the off season. While we all know that even the best restaurant has an occasional off day, I have never seen an off day at Nicola's. The food makes me want to lick the plate, the staff is always smiling and upbeat, and even the occasional waiting line is enjoyable.... More

I ate here last night, May 19th, for my dad's birthday dinner, and it was absolutely delicious! The food was authentic and all homemade. I had a small pepperoni pizza and seasoned curly fries, along with garlic bread bites. The people are so friendly, and the décor is bright and colorful. I totally recommend this restaurant if you're looking for... More

I know I can be a snob about Italian food. Mom and her entire NY Italian family were/are great cooks of traditional 'old world' fare. That being said, I did not expect to find even moderately good traditional Italian food while visiting Englewood FL. But I am glad to say I was wrong. Their sauce (gravy) is as good as... More
