Arrived on a Tuesday night for dinner and were the only ones in the restaurant for some time. The staff was pleasant and attentive. Our meals came out quite quickly since there were very few patrons. The food was very flavorful and everyone in my party enjoyed their meals!

Went with a groupon. Food was great. Portions were plentiful. Reasonable prices. Good service. Went back a few weeks later with another couple. They also loved it.

We were seated right away. Restaurant had nice crowd for a Tuesday night. Started out with hot antipasto. Large portion hot & delicious. My wife had veal parmigiana which see enjoyed.
I had salmon special topped with baby shrimp and crabmeat. EXCELLENT! The wine was reasonably priced as was our meal. Didn't get the waitress' name but she was also EXCELLENT!
Would definitely recommend NICK'S TUSCAN GRILL!

We enjoyed the food very much. But the service was lacking. The hostess was surly about seating us, and the server, while pleasant, was inattentive. It took an hour for our main course to arrive and then another 10 minutes to get the server's attention so we could get grated cheese. One of the dishes came out specifically the way that we asked it not to come out. So while the food at Nick's is really, really good, it isn't worth the service issues.

We were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation time, & things were downhill from there. The service was so slow that it took more than an hour for us to get our meal. The menu states that they have gluten free options, however the staff needs to be trained on what gluten free is. Not just the front of the house, but the kitchen staff as well.
Two of us have a gluten allergy & the server we had told us she didn't know anything about it & didn't care she was to busy. We knew that we were going to have a problem. The first dish I ordered was a simple beet & goat cheese salad, well the cheese was breaded & fried, first thing to go back.
The main courses arrived, my fish was dry & tasteless, the pasta dish arrived & when asked if it was gluten free the server had no idea, went back to the kitchen to check. One request was lite on the sauce, I guess they didn't understand because it was drowning in sauce, as was the chicken franchise . The filet mignon was ordered medium rare, sauce on the side, it was delivered covered in sauce & medium well. I guess we will not be going back to Nick's anytime soon.

Nice find. Great selection of food. Husband and wife owners' presence provided a personal touch. Wife was our waitress and lovely to deal with. We were there on Halloween and many other diners were dressed up. Restaurant was festively decorated. Food choices were many and items we ordered all very tasty! Home-made cannoli was the perfect ending. Hope to be back soon.

Let's start by saying it was busy. We had reservations and got seated a little after our time. We got seated at a table that was not setup no glasses plates cover or silverware. They never put silverware out we had to ask for it.
It took about 10+ min to get water and they didn't have enough in the pitcher to fill all the glasses all the way up ok but they never came back to fill it up. Took another 15 for the waitress to come take our drink order.
Then we sat there for a while before our drinks came. Two drinks came out of the 4 finally the other 2 arrived and we waited to place and order for a bit. Food came out in not that bad of a time. We had to ask for things like butter 2 or 3 times. Our waitress never came over to check on us. When she finally passed us we had to grab her for another another drink. Then when we ordered another one she said we ran out of glasses do you one if we reuse these. Really what do you say to that.
When we received our food she never came over to see how it was. We had to grab her for our check. Bussers do not

Good place to get a hearty meal at a reasonable price. Noise level is low so you can actually have a conversation without talking loud. Service was very good and friendly. Will be going back there to eat.

Nick's Tuscan Grill is a charming little restaurant with a wonderful ambiance, excellent service, and above all, delectable Italian food. My boyfriend and I were very pleased with each course and our server, Natalie, was absolutely amiable and accommodating. The entire staff was nothing but pleasant and we will certainly be dining there again! If you love Italian food, you will truly savor each bite at this little gem on Mineola Boulevard!
