"New Jambalaya Risotto"
The new Jambalaya Risotto (under specials of the day) was quite a surprize. The tomato cream sauce was very tasty. A must try for everyone. The antipasta salad was fresh and was the 1/2 portion was just right for 2.
We will try more of their daily specials on the next visit.

The Jambalaya was outstanding, like eating at a fine dining restaurant but not paying the price. Ask for the Jambalaya, the new one, John's way. The peanut butter cheese cake was small, but very tasty and enough to share for 2 persons.

Nicola's is a Woodland Hills neighborhood gem. Located in the charming French Quarter (yeah, who knew Woodland Hills had a French Quarter?!). Good food, service, and ambience.

Mother's day Brunch
Staff was very friendly, our waitress was extremely helpful and patient with the kids. John the owner came out and check on us a couple of times and was very nice and obviously took pride in his business and the impression it was making on us. I definitely would recommend Nicola's kitchen.

I love this restaurant. I've tried many of their delicious dishes but my favorite is their own special chopped salad!!! All the pasta dishes are wonderful as well!

Even if you're out of the neighborhood, it's still a gem. Their salads and house dressing are amazing. Nice variety menu. Our first time here and will definitely be returning. Our friends eat lunch here consistantly. Service oriented, clean and fresh good quality food. Who could ask for anything more?

great food, great service
I've been here for lunch several times, and the food has always been great. This was the first time I came for dinner. The food was excellent, especially the pine nut crusted halibut. Our server was extremely personable, had great recommendations, and even gave us a sample of the tiramisu because he promised it would be the best we'd ever tasted - it was.

I go to Nicola's at least
I go to Nicola's at least twice a week for lunch. I love it! The owners and servers treat me like family. They always use my first name. The food is delicious, especially the special chopped chicken salad.

Another Great Dining Experience
We have been fans of Nicola's Kitchen for years. The food is consistently high quality and prepared with care. The atmosphere is fun and relaxed at the outside seating, lovely on a warm summer evening or wrapped up on a winter night. The booths inside can change the experience into a romantic dinner. The staff is excellent all around but we do have our favorite server, Kelly, who is never without a smile and an engaging laugh while providing great service!

Great time to spend!
I took my husband there for his birthday. We really enjoyed food and their service.
We were comfortable to talk with people there.
I recommend here to my friend!

Four of us -- each chose something different. Food was prepared as requested (two orders with special request). Tasty. Large portions (we each had left overs). Good variety. Casual. Comfortable. Quiet enough for conversation. Have eaten there many times for lunch - only 2nd time for dinner. Definitely will return.

Just as the title suggests, this place has been and still is an authentic and wonderful place. Always quiet, super friendly and clean. And I mean, really friendly! The staff are always accomidating and enthusiastic and know everything about the menu items. Do not pass this one up if you live nearby or are just looking for a nice, quiet hidden spot with awesome food and service. And you will most definitely leave full and happy and always with left overs for the next day.
