Location is in a strip mall so has a bit of a “ store front” feel. Open dining; tables are close together so it isn’t intimate/romantic. Service friendly and prompt. Our group had the calamari, Veg Lasagna, Chicken Parm, Lamb Gnocchi and Wild Boar ragu. All were very good. Menu is ala cart so nothing comes with your entree other than bread at the table. Shared the Chocolate Mousse cake which was amazing. Open dining means noise but we had no problems conversing in normal voices. Overall a good experience. Felt it was on the expensive side.

Very slow service. The wait for our entrees was 45 minutes. Would not recommend coming here if you have anything else scheduled afterwards.

Thank you Nicoletta's for complimentary Anniversary Sparkling wine. We enjoyed the atmosphere and our service! We came here due to Nicoletta's being our first date, when the the Pearl location was open and decided to try Lake O. Great space, great wine and great flavors.

Our meals were great, I had the Cioppino and didn't realize it would come with chopped sausage in it, I was looking forward to crab! My mistake for assuming all are served with crab. My spouse had the Gnocchi Di Agnello. He said the flavors were excellent but was looking forward to a Leg of lamb and not shredded meat as it came out. Overall great experience and EXCELLENT service, i'm sorry i can;t remember our waitress name but she had glasses and were her last table on 11/16!

As usual, the food was so good, enjoyed every bite and our waitress was very sweet and personable. We were sitting near the bar at a tiny table, and my husband could hardly hear, so I asked the hostess if we could move, and she was awesome. It was busy, but she didn’t get upset, she moved us and we had a great night. It’s our favorite place in LO!

Nicoletta's is one of the most consistently excellent restaurants and caterers I've ever been to or worked with. Great food, good prices, great service and charming ambiance.
For many years they have provided a standard of performance that all other restaurants could try to emulate. I've taken numerous friends to their place and every one has agreed and made it a favorite. ;
Congratulations to them for being so good!

I have been to Nicolettas before and was so impressed with the food and service. We returned to bring a friend for their birthday. The kitchen was out of two dishes, one which we would have ordered, and one member of our party had to settle for their third choice of wine because the first two were not available. The kitchen had also run out of one of the desserts listed. I understand it is difficult to plan ahead for how many portions will be needed each night so that food isn’t wasted, but this was our first experience at any restaurant being out of so many items. When a member of our party went to use the salt shaker, the lid fell off and dumped the entire container of salt on their meal. Of course the meal was replaced, but it left someone waiting while the rest of us ate. Of course the food was outstanding but the evening birthday event, which we wanted to be special, was disappointing.

Been here several times. Most dishes are very good. They had a nice piece of halibut but a very spicy red sauce on it which over took the flavor of the fish. When you arrive for some reason they don’t have bus people that bring you water Brad etc. you have to wait for your waiter to arrive which when they’re busy you can sometimes be quite a while. Also, it took quite a while to receive my beverage from the bar. They may want to consider hiring some bus people I’m busy weekend nights to help the servers

Matt was an outstanding server. Made great recommendations and was super attentive. Great personality and recognized me when I returned - which for a neighborhood business is key. I will be back and ask for Matt.

Food was excellent, service was a little slow even though we arrived at 5:15 and only 1/3 of the tables were occupied at that point, Had a table right next to the music speaker which was quite loud. Hostess was very accommodating in turning it off. Al in all a very pleasant experience

We loved celebrating my friend's birthday at Nicoletta's. The cracker and bread with olive oil was a perfect starter with a Chianti, and the dinner was delicious and in appropriate portions. The servers graciously waited for us to have quiet conversation and settle our dinner before enticing us with delicious desserts, as well. And then, Surprise! They added a candle to her dessert. We will come back again!!

Really fresh food. Great service. Was our first visit, and it was only lunch, so it wasn’t packed. Not sure how loud it’d get but I definitely recommend reservations for dinner hours. Will go again.

Dump the piano. Our waiter kindly moved us to another table where it was not as loud. Too much for a small place.

Our waiter was spectacular, especially given he had way too many tables to service. This is one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants and even if not in my neighborhood, I would travel for Nicoletta’s. Tonight was not one of the best experiences I’ve had. My Spinach salad soggy with way too much dressing and the pasta primavera was very disappointing. Extremely heavy in an oily sauce, lacking flavor. I took a few bites and the dish didn’t make we want to go further. Too oily and the noodles too heavy. They do many things right but not a cream sauce. Should have got my old standby, lasagna.

My friends really enjoyed their time at Nicoletta's Table. However, it would be helpful if the menu marked which items could be gluten-free. I sent our server back 3 times (poor guy) to ask about various items, & struck out every time. I ended up with the spinach salad, which was tasty. Our server also had a problem getting the bill sorted, as there were 5 of us on separate tickets, which he knew at the beginning, yet it took 3 times to get it right. It's a good thing it wasn't busy yet, & we weren't in a hurry.

Our waiter Matthew was wonderful. The prawn appetizer is out of this world and so are the Ravioli and Cannoli. The only problem was the spinach salad was a bit oily and not much taste, but best place for our 34th wedding anniversary:)

First time. Found on Trip Advisor. We were headed to the play across the street that night. Omar was our server. Very attentive and eager to please. We tried several things and shared back and forth. Ordered a nice bottle of Chianti. Had to skip dessert because we were full.

A delicious & delightful lunch. I had the sandwich with Italian meats & a small side salad. Both were very good. My husband's spaghetti with bolognese sauce was one of the best he's had. We will definitely return to this restaurant the next time we are in Lake Oswego visiting family, and I would definitely recommend it without hesitation.

The food is always amazing here and tonight did not disappoint. The vongole and the cream of mushroom soup are the best I have ever had; so flavorful! We had to wait a little longer than usual for our food tonight, but nothing unacceptable and we didn’t complain. However, the manager personally came to our table to apologize, comped our entire meal and gave us a bottle of wine to take home. Now that was probably the best service we have ever received in a restaurant before. Will definitely go back!

Not great. The waitress and the kitchen could not provide a simple oil and vinegar dressing for s main entree salad an after many tries it never came. 2nd dish was lasagna which was made in a single layer hot with a lot of sauce just no pasta.

Nice menu and friendly service. Food was well-prepared and generous portions (of seafood). Pricing is a touch high (esp for some of the wine mark-ups) but we would certainly come back again.

We were fortunate to have Erika as our server. Wow, what a gem. She was not only delightful, she really went the extra mile to call the bar manager Dory, who was off that day but knew us, for an amazing wine recommendation. Dory is one of those special people who beam like a shining star and we knew that. We came to find out that Erika is also a great example of a shining star and we were blessed to meet her.

The food was delicious, beautiful fresh salads to share and everyone loved their entree. It was a lovely summer evening and we enjoyed sitting outside.
Our waiter (Kelly?) was delightful! I believe it was his second day at Nicolletta’s but he was professional and knowledgeable and charming!
Overall it was a great experience.
