We ate in the backroom which is more to our speed, laid back, anyway. This is where you will meet locals and fellow travellors to share stories with.

“Sunday afternoon brunch - enjoyable!”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

I had heard of Nick's but dined there until last Sunday - however, I will be back. After a discussion with our waiter, my friend and I first had a selection of the locally made Fino in Fondo salumi - all with its own unique taste. Followed by a thin-crust pizza with gorgonzola cheese, carmelized onions and thinly-sliced pear - a wonderful combination of tastes. Eat only a couple slices of pizza to leave room for the lasagna - a house specialty with dungeness crab, mushrooms, roasted pine nuts and garlic. Followed by dessert and coffee. Even with a bottle of italian wine, total tap just over $100. A leisurely Sunday afternoon - great food, good/knowledgeable service and reasonable price for value.

After a ruined birthday dinner the night before, we decided to try Nick's based on recommendations for a "do over" dinner. It couldn't have been better. The crab past and wine was everything a birthday dinner should be. We will be going back again for sure!

“Nice italian”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Nick's is in a store front location in downtown McMinnville. They serve very well prepared Italian dishes. They also have some more "wine country" type dishes like the salmon I had served over green beans and tomatoes. The wait staff really know their stuff and we had a lovely evening.
