a little overprices to be honest- food was a 8/10 not bad at all
Our first visit. We were greeted like old friends. We've traveled Italy extensively. Nicola's food and wine would be at home in Florence or Rome. We've already booked a return visit. 'nuff said.
Food always great. Patio nicely done
Always excellent. The pasta, the wine, the limoncello- our favorite restaurant in the city. ❤️
Excellent homemade pasta. The patio is lovely with flowers and the garden to the side. Love this restaurant.
was an amazing experience food was great and nicola came out to the patio tables and touched base with everyone to make sure everything was great!
This is a fantastic place. The food was incredible and the service was outstanding. Authentic Italian is exactly how I would describe it. I cant say enough about the food and service. I felt like I was having dinner at my Italian Grandmother's house. Nicola Great job in the Kitchen and at the Table. this is my third time here and all my experiences have been similar, so this is not a fluke. GREAT JOB we will be back
It’s a NICE restaurant. Do not let the strip mall location fool you. Also, it does not have a children’s menu.
The rack-of-lamb was ok, but not worth the price compared to other places we’ve had it. Maybe other items on the menu would be a better choice, something more traditional Italian.
Food was excellent!!
Outstanding all around!
Had a marvelous evening of drinks and appetizers out on the patio. Service was excellent--perfectly paced, and the food, as usual, top-notch. Highly recommend!
We always enjoy dining at Nicolas. Great food (non-red sauce Italian), nice mostly Italian wine selection, friendly service, and the personal attention of owners Nicola and Esperanza.
This restaurant does not use Open Table reservations anymore! Had to eat at the bar because did not accept reservation. You should take them
Delicious authentic food!
The food was excellent as was the service . We ate on the patio area which was beautifully decorated w lights and flowers . Will def be back .
Favorite Italian restaurant in the city. Always excellent
We ate outside on the lovely patio and totally enjoyed our meals. My husband had seafood risotto, mom had the gnocchi, dad had the tagliatelle I had homemade pasta with Alfredo sauce. Our server was delightful and efficient. We will definitely go back!
Hostess was dismissive and in a nice way,, confrontational. No complimenary bread at an Italian restaurant was surprising to say the least. Our waiter was nice, but we felt a little awkward when he spoke with us. Food was phenomenal. A little on the high especially without again, a complimentary side. Overall okay, but doesn't demand a must go
Outstanding veal dishes- excellent Tiramisu -service was good after an initial mixup on who was covering our table - we will be back again
Lasagna was outstanding. The portabello mushroom with sausage was delish! Tiramisu and cappucino were the perfect endings.
Always completely satisfied after dining at nicola. Food is fabulous, delicious wines, and very friendly staff. Great place to take friends for any occasion . Highly recommend
This is a wonderful restaurant for either simple dining or a special occasion. Our server, Sara, was wonderful.
Fabulous environment, service and food. Felt like i was in Tuscany seeing the tomatoes and basil growing right off the garden patio.
Will return agsin
Always a pleasant dining experience! The food is outstanding, we will be back!
Incredible food and incredible service every time! I haven't had anything there I did not enjoy. The recommendations on drinks and food from our server were incredible.
Great food - varied and creative Italian, not just red sauce based. Nice wine selection; friendly service. Nice patio and a confortable well spaced dining room. Owners are delightful - he's the chef and she manages the dining room and has time to greet all their customers
Always a bright spot in my week...dinner at Nicola! The food is outstanding and chef Nicola has special creations all the time, dining here is a delight!
The service was excellent. The food was amazing. The owner came and talked to us and was extremely friendly. The Ambiance was perfect. I highly recommend this place, and we will definitely be back!
The best Italian food we’ve had in Columbus in a very long time! Definitely will be back.
Our waitress was very good. She never rushed any part of the dinner. It is a pleasant dining experience. The food was very good. We had lasagna.
Patio seating was exceptionally beautiful with all the flowers and plants. We especially appreciated the complimentary aperitif in recognition of our anniversary. Food was superb!
The food was okay, expected higher quality.
High quality ingredients prepared really well. Service was warm and inviting. Pasta dishes had loads of flavor. If you're looking for something different don't shy away from the wild boar pasta. It was excellent.
Absolutely love this restaurant. On this visit we had Nicola's cioppino and veal piccata. For dessert, cannolis and cappacino. Just delicious. The homemade pasta is so good. The service is wonderful.
Best genuine Italian
Excellent as always. The homemade pastas are incredible. As are the specials. Each week it’s something new and amazing. Best Italian restaurant in the city.
We enjoyed a perfect night on the patio. Even though there were a lot of diners we felt like we had our own space. Food, as always, was amazing!
Great meal and excellent service!!
