Locals and tourists packed this place on a Monday. Our family took a large table, and we enjoyed calamari, artichoke appetizers, eggplant, salads. It was just a very nice relaxed place with reasonable prices and a good wine list.

This place conveniently located right on Main Street has Excellent Italian food. This was our first time to Cooperstown & we felt like Italian food for dinner. Well, this upscale place with white tablecloths is fairly reasonable. I had veal Parm & wife had veal marsala. I'll tell you the veal was the most tender I've ever had! Also great... More

The building in which the restaurant is located is vintage and fits in with the charming downtown of Cooperstown. The staff and menu were excellent. All of us enjoyed our choices. Service was efficient and the prices right in line. We would visit again.

We get to Cooperstown at least once a year and usually eat outdoors at the Otesaga. This time it was a little cool for outside so we thought we'd try Nicoletta's. Four of us went and were very happy with the choices and the meals. We had several of the salads, all fresh and with the right amount of good... More

Tried Nicoletta's based on reviews and was not disappointed. Typical of small town, upstate NY, this place didn't look like much from the outside. However, inside is nice with hardwood floors and just enough decor to set the atmosphere. The food was excellent!

The service was wonderful and the food was tasty. I had tuna (rare) and a green salad, both good. The bread was warm with a crisp crust. The desserts were many and all sounded delicious. Although I refrained this time....I may indulge on my next visit. I loved the white tablecloths and the interior...very pleasant.

We (mid-'60's couple, non-snob foodies) ate here on a Friday night in September with our three grandsons, ages 10-14. We couldn't have had more fun. Service was attentive but not overbearing, food was very high quality, and very fairly priced. Cloth napkins and tablecloths. Classy but not pretentious. Good wine list without requiring a second mortgage to get something decent.... More

We were walking down Main Street in Cooperstown looking for a place to have dinner. Two gentlemen opened the door to Nicoletta's and it was love at fist sniff. The aroma coming out of the front door was so enticing we could not resist going inside. The restaurant is in an old "skinny" building that runs front to back. The... More
