Love Nicola! We always have a good experience!
We made a last minute reservation for 15. We were seated together in a side area which worked great. Food and service was awesome. Highly recommend Nicola!
We plan on returning. The food was excellent! It was extremely noisy and the waitress seemed a little busy but took care of us.
Love this restaurant. The food is always wonderful and people are always welcomed and made to feel valued.
The service was a bit slow. I believe the waiter had too many tables to take care of.
Look forward to going back..🍷🍴
We have often dined at Nicola. We have always had good food, excellent service in a very coomodious atmosphere.
Dining at Nicola is always an enjoyable experience. Casual Saturday night dinner on the patio was made more special with the fabulous food and excellent service! Thanks Nicola! ❤️
Very good service and lovely food. We were celebrating a special occasion and it was the perfect place to do so!
Wonderful service from Beth. Food excellent and reasonably-priced.
Delightful dining experience, delicious food, friendly, personable service. We ate on the patio -- charming !
Great food. Every dish was top notch. I'd recommend this to anyone.
Excellent food.felt that service was lacking and possibly overlooked.we may try you place again!
They had the largest ravioli we have ever experienced.
We had a family dinner and it was memorable. The food, wine, service and ambiance was outstanding!
One of the best spots for special occasions! Outstanding service and food!!
Wonder food. Authentic and carefully and expertly prepared.
Great as usual
Gorgeous patio and incredible food!
Only negatives - We had to wait 30 minutes for our table outside even though we had a reservation. I guess you can’t make a reservation for outside? The service was somewhat slow, but I think they may have been short staffed tonight.
Definitely recommend this place and am eager to go back!!
The menu, ambiance, and our waiter Igor were all excellent.
Food was excellent
Service was a little slow, especially since the resturant was less than half full on a Friday evening. One of our meals was cold when served and had to be reheated. Everyone was very polite.
My wife and I made a reservation at Niola for dinner on a Friday Evening. We arrived on time and were seated quickly. The waitress brought us each a water, and then for the next 30 minutes we watched as four other tables were seated, their drinks were ordered & delivered along with bread and butter, and their dinner orders were taken.
All the while my wife and I sat with our waters. No one offered us menus, bread or asked what we would like to have to drink.
We got up and left. As we walked out the door the hostess said she hoped we had a good evening.
Visiting Nicola Restaurant is always a treat! The seafood risotto was the special for the day and was excellent, as was the pork dish. We enjoyed the owners stopping by to greet us and the beautiful summer evening. Thank you for a great dining experience.
Great for a special occasion or just dinner out!
Excellent neighborhood gem! Authentic Italian cuisine. We are from Cincy and wee will be back!
The menu has changed considerably since I was last there, but it's still wonderful. I miss the the lamb rack they used to do so beautifully. But everything was great as always this time
The food was, as always, scrumptious. My dinner companion prefers the spaghetti with meatballs. I had the rigatoni with a side order of sausage. They were, if anything, better than I remembered. The service was attentive without being overwhelming; and the chef's wife was welcoming and considerate. It was too hot to enjoy the patio, unfortunately; that space has become increasingly attractive as the well-chosen plants have approached maturity.
Igor took great care of us. We felt very welcome and enjoyed our meal very much
We had dinner with friends last Saturday evening. We dined on the patio and found it absolutely lovely. Although surrounded by a parking lot, there were potted bushes all around the exterior which gave it a private, elegant feel. There were also plants between the tables so, again, there was the feeling of privacy. It was quiet and pleasant. The service was quite good and everyone enjoyed their food. Three of us had salads and appetizers as our meal and that was quite sufficient. The other person had the lasagna and there was plenty to take home for another meal. All in all a wonderful outing and dinner.
Best Italian fóod in Columbus! Family owned and truly authentic.
It's always a pleasure to dine here. Excellent food, service and ambiance makes it worth every penny. Our favorite place in town.
Great homemade pasta...beautiful Patio good people.. We will be back
Very attentive albeit slow service. Everything is "leisurely." Food is creative Italian fare, and very good. Very dark and quiet ambience. Good wine list. Few desserts, no cannoli(?!), though. I can recommend, but don't be in a hurry.
Our waiter never understood what we told him or asked him ! We had to repeat it couple of times or really very loud!
Always a wonderful experience! Great people and excellent food.
As always the food and service was fantastic!
Great service. Excellent cocktails. And very good food.
First time visit to Nicola.. overall experience was wonderful. Waiter was attentive and the cocktails/food were superb. The veal special was perfect and the scallops/arugula risotto outstanding.. I licked the plate.. Nicola came table side to chat and told him I will make ourselves regulars for sure.
Casual fine Italian dining. Good for any occasion.
Great food. Great service. Best patio in town.
