We started upstairs because we wanted to see the entertainment but were told we needed a reservation. They tried to add a table which was off to the side and out of view of the stage, so we decided to skip and just go downstairs to eat. After being seated a waiter came by in a huff and said "I'll...

Four of us 60 somethings ate here one evening. One ordered pizza which was only so-so. No individual pizzas on offer. One ordered mussels which were excellent as were the sausage and peppers. Huge portions. Odd server who seemed distant until the end of the meal when he perked up.

The concierge at our hotel recommended Nick's for a nice Italian dinner. We went but unfortunately were disappointed by the tardiness of the food, my fish was really rancid and I had to send it back and the people that came with us all gave it a thumbs down. So, it wasn't bad but definitely it wasn't good!

Thank you so much for your fabulous food. My husband & I are snowbirds from Ohio. The first time we ate at your restaurant we just happened to pass by. Our second visit there last night was very purposeful. We've searched high and low for good Italian fare, & now have found i

Outside is a little cheesy but the food is good and the Italian waitress worth the visit. Been there 4 times in 11 days as I kept wanting to try different dishes. The portions are large, enough to share.

Right down the street from where we are staying for 3 days. Went here twice for fabulous Italian food. My husband and I enjoyed the homemade soups each night. Our entries ranged from stuffed peppers to veal to penne and a Nicks special Italian dish. Everything was delicious. They have $14.99 dinner specials each evening which were very tasty. Our... More

This restaurant reminds me of some favorite Italian dining when I was younger. The staff was great, the food was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the Italian Egg Roll? AN unusual treat. I think this place will be around for a long time and worth enjoying.

Place serves decent Italian food. Not the best, certainly not the worst. Dining downstairs is very casual. Upstairs a bit more dressy. Live entertainment and dancing every night in the upstairs lounge.

Well, let me say the food was good and authentic Italian. The waiter ruined it. He was less than attentive, he didn't care. Refills no. Not from him. The bar tender had noticed he had not came back and got us refills. The server super nice, he was hustling is rear off. The waiter forgot to bring our check after... More
