Other restaurants were already filled up as this was not our first choice. The server was excellent throughout the meal. Drinks, bread, appetiser (clams), and salads (Caesar and Sunday), were quite good. If the main courses had been as good I would give a 4...More

Pizza and clams already unavailable before 8pm. Bleak, uninspiring atmosphere. Pasta sauces watery and cafeteria-average in quality. Service very pleasant and cheerful, but noticeably inefficient. It pains me to leave a poor review, but this place needs to do much much better.

A lot of mixed and even horrible reviews for this place, but we found the pizza was among the best we've ever had. If you like New York City-style, really thin-and-crispy crust pizza, you'll like the pizza at Nicola's.

The food was overcooked and poor quality. The service was even worse. Throughout our entire meal we had to endure hearing staff use vulgar language and loudly discuss inappropriate topics with individuals at the bar in front of families with children. I would never go...More
