“Good Food average Service”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

When we arrived and were told a 25 minute wait, we were happy, yes that usually means repeat customers prepared to wait for good food. There is a wine and beer person outside which was nice. Seating is tight and decor lightly Italian. the place is very clean and well kept. While there seemed to be lots of servers for the number of tables, it was slow and inconsistent. Waiting and reminding about beverages and 35 minutes between salad and main course with our server gone. When they finally arrived(not from our waitress but from the outside bar lady) it was warm and delicious. Good size portions and nicely presented. The prices may be a tad higher than other Italian locations but not excessive. We would recommend it and the delicious little bread bites soaked in oil and garlic that are provided at likely 250 cal. A piece.

“Magnifico....”
Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

we had another superb dinner at Nicolas!. Fantastic service by many young ladies, as well as a delicious meal. The wait was short and well worth it. We even shared dessert! tor tufa and bread pudding!We both love the Veal Parmesan & the delicious homemade salad dressings, plus the steamed clam appetizer! Thank you, Tina, for your continued service to the community!

Dear bigguy11,

Thanks for taking the time to write a review about our restaurant. We enjoy reading each and every one. We appreciate your understanding of an "off night"....it happens from time to time and pray its not reflected to our guests. We hope to see you again ;)
