Joined a group of friends out to enjoy a nice dinner. Service was awful. Waitress spilled food on my friends clothing, didn't get who was getting which plate correct once, removed wine glasses even though we had ordered wine, and refused to split the check...More

This is our favorite place for a special night out. The food is wonderful, as is the service. I find their prices to be in line with the excellent quality.

Love Nicola"s! Have eaten here many times. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is soothing, peaceful. Have specials every night and if you have a dietary restriction, they will be able to accomodate within reason.

Trattoria is a word often used in the US without regard to what its genuine Italian tradition implies. In Italy a trattoria is a place that serves simple food in extraordinarily flavorful ways. Nicola's did not live up to the tradition. I had the calamari...More

My wife and I have been to Nicola's Trattoria many times. The food is always fantastic and the ambience relaxing, inviting and refined, whether eating in the dining room or bar area. We've enjoyed the brussel sprouts, bruschetta, cozze, calamari fritti, gamberi della casa, gamberi...More
