This place had really great authentic Italian cooking. Good prices and nice atmosphere and staff. AND it was one of the few places that did a decent Gluten Free pizza. It closed one day around December and never came back. I dont know what happened, but it's no longer in business in East Windsor

My mother, son and I were headed out to lunch at a chain restaurant when Nicolina's caught my eye. My son has recently become a vegetarian so I thought Italian food might be a good choice. We were not disappointed. My son has two slices of pizza, I had a grilled vegetable pannini and a small Caesar salad and my... More

The food at Nicolina is good, but not necessarily any better than other Italian Restaurants in the area. Unfortunately, the server that my party of 4 had was a bit rude and we felt rushed from the moment we got our food until we left. I was visiting with a group of friends who had not seen each other in... More

Nicolina's is a "pizza place" offering entrees and sandwiches as well. What sets this restaurant apart is the nice lighting and atmosphere. You can BYOB and go for a pizza to share or order anything from chicken frances to salmon. It feels like a really nice evening and is very reasonable. They have a fire place for cold evenings and...

We had four entrees. They were all very generous potions and delicious. We had the penne vodka, chicken parmigiana, chicken Nocolina, and a cheese Steak. Served with a large family style salad and dinner rolls. My only suggestions would be to get good Italian bread or make the rolls garlic rolls, they were too plain, and the pasta was drowning...

they make both thin crispy and thick crust pizzas and have a simple lunch menu and a more complex dinner menu. Service is good.

Nicolina looks like the usual pizza- restaurant place from the outside, but inside it's extremely attractive and appealing. Their menu is varied and our party of eight had ordered their chicken cacciatore, beef braciole, lasagna, penne with vegetables, and pasta with clam sauce. Everyone enjoyed their entree which included a salad with a lovely light dressing. We were there on... More

Out of the blue, my wife and I had dinner here at this Italian restaurant this evening and were VERY pleasantly surprised. We were in the mood to try a restaurant in town we hadn't visited yet and I'm glad we did. The outside is very deceiving. Its located in a small shopping center and we didn't know what to... More

Almost hate to give this an excellent review for selfish reasons - they're getting busy, and soon it will be hard to get in. But the truth is this is an excellent place, consistently turning out fantastic meals in a very pleasant setting, at reasonable prices. Don't let the shopping center location put you off. The decor is way above... More
