Back in town to visit mom and Nicola's was on the must do list. No wait to get in and seated. Prompt wait staff. Veal parmesan was totally yummy. The canoli...oh the canoli! See you next month.

Not bad, but wouldn’t return anytime soon. Food came out warm, not hot. It was Loud, and service was slow. When we were served, it seemed rushed. Overall, the food was “mediocre at best.” This was our third or fourth time here, just figured we...More

Thank you so much. The wine list was fun getting together...I mean trying all those wines are exhausting. Lol. Table saved. See you soon.

Nicolas is nearly always busy, so I was expecting good Italian food. Unfortunately, it's pretty bland. We tried their pizza and a pasta dish....both tasted like they weren't seasoned enough.

This restaurant genuinely replicates a classic Trattoria you would find in most Italian villages. Walking in you immediately feel the warmth of the staff and small the aroma of great food cooking. The wait was very short, the staff delightful. The menu offered many classic...More

I have known the owners for many years and not only are they talented, but the food is great and so is the service. In an Italian restaurant I gage my evaluation on how the noodles are cooked and the spaghetti here are perfect.
