“We felt like we were an imposition!”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

When we walked in we had to stand at the entrance for several mintutes before anyone even approached us. When they did acknowledge us, it felt as if it were an imposition for them to seat us. Dinner was nothing special, everything tasted as if it had been doused with pepper. The soup was nice though. It was VERY expensive

“Excellent food and great service !”
Reviewed December 8, 2011

Stopped in for a quick bite before heading to a show and chose to sit at the bar. The wait staff was super friendly, the food was freshly made and came in what seemed like no time at all. During the wait, we enjoyed some fantastic wine and lovely music . I am definitely returning when I have more time.

“Absolutely amazing!”
Reviewed December 8, 2011

My husband and I found Nicola's when we were first dating almost 7 years ago. We have chosen Nicola's for every special occasion since then (birthday, anniversary, Valentine's Day, "date night", etc..) The food is superb and the service is truly professional. We have never been disappointed or unhappy at Nicola's. The open kitchen and soft lighting makes it a great romantic restaurant and the staff are so knowledgeable. By far the BEST restaurant in Keene, if not New Hampshire!

“The Best!”
Reviewed December 8, 2011

Nicolas's is just simply the best! Fresh delicious meals prepared perfectly. We are so lucky to have them in Keene -- they could compete in any major city! A trip to Keene is not complete without dining at Nicolas's!
