My out of town co-worker picked this place after her first choice was permanently closed (oops!) But her next choice was great! Small but well lit and quaint. Good service and terrific food!

Nicola's Italian Wine & Fare is my first choice for dinning out. Excellent food and wonderful atmosphere! When the weather is nice, sit outside! My favorite is anything with their garlic cream sauce and their Italian Lemon Cake. However their entire menu is excellent!

It’s a nice summer evening so I sat outside! No bugs, nice breeze, plenty of shade. You can sit inside (a/c) if not into the outdoors. Food was outstanding! Very tasty and just enough! Not over stuffed. Staff was very friendly and professional. Definitely a...More

We sat on the patio which was nice and our server was pleasant. We had been here about two years ago and the staff and management were very high on themselves at that time. I guess rude would be a better word for it. Tonight...More

Seated right away and service was excellent. Brendan took great care of us. Pasta entrees come with a small salad and bruschetta. Everything was really fresh and light on the palate.

My coworkers and I visited this place for dinner. The heat (it has been beastly) had broke so we opted to eat outside. The patio is roomier than the inside which is long a narrow. We had lovely atmosphere for dinner under a shade tree....More

While staying at the Hyatt around the corner, we decided Italian was perfect for dinner. We walked over and were greeted and seated quickly on patio, which was lovely. Sitting watching people walk about town, sipping a glass of wine and Bruschetta on the patio...More

We loved our food. My daughter had Portobello mushroom ravioli with the cream sauce. It was our favorite meal of the trip. The patio was really nice and everyone was really friendly.

Tiny, rustic indoor seating, with seating in a big beautiful outdoor garden. A very special way to enjoy an evening with friends or family. The homemade desserts are the perfect way to end a delightful meal. We want you to enjoy your evening and enjoy freshly made entrees, so they do take a little more time to prepare when ordering. We also cater business lunches and dinner parties. The red sauce has a little kick to it and I love our lasagna!
