Stumbled upon this gem by accident while in the area... attentive waitstaff and amazing Italian cuisine! Starting with the fresh bread and complimentary antipasti...fettuccine malafemmina ... definitely order the homemade pasta! Garlic on the sautéed spinach is roasted to perfection. Lasagna bolognese not on the menu but made to order.... dual off between ny style cheesecake and ricotta based cheesecake, hands down in house made ricotta! Only constructive criticism, homemade cheesecake calls for homemade cream!
Byob, excellent place next door. Thank you to Kevin for a must return experience!

My Dad loves Nicola so when he passed, it seemed the logical choice for his repast. The menu is online and there are so many options. We had a homemade pasta choice which was delicious and 3 entree choices, all of which were terrific. The servers were great and we couldn't have asked for a better send off for my Dad.

Food is quite good, especially the homemade pasta. Prices are slightly above average in this BYOB restaurant. An extensive offering of specials aid the standard bill of fare in expanding one's choices. Service for our table of eight was efficient and friendly, and we all enjoyed our entrees. Located in a small mall next to a health club, the parking was not the greatest, but we found a spot.

I am not from the area, but have family and friends who go there for every special occasion and I been there 3 times now for birthday and engagement parties. The service was excellent and the portions belly busting! Great selections and well prepared hearty Italian food that did not let an American/Italian down. Believe it or not I have to return for another party, but am going to make a non private party event stop there for dinner it is that good!
