Food and service were great. Room was a bit loud. I go here every year for my birthday and I love their patio. They make a great aperol spritz too!

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.

Much thought and care given to these recipes; wonderful herbs, spices and sauces. The bread is to die for! Save room for desert! Our waitress, Nicole was very personable and attentive.

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.

I wish you offered a kid's menu. My child ordered the spaghetti with meatballs for over $20 (!) and of course, couldn't finish it. A smaller portion with a smaller price tag would have been great. No other complaints, everything else was lovely and delicious.

We had a very skilled and pleasant waitress, I believe her name was Nicole, and her wine and food recommendations were spot on. The seafood was so good I'm ordering it next time as my main plate instead of a shared appetizer! This was a birthday meal and really memorable for everyone. Nicoletta's always been good but last time was the best ever.

Great food and great service. A bit pricy, but worth it for the authentic Italian choices. We'll be back to try the pizza and happy hour!

I had not been in the relatively new courtyard before. What a nice job they have done. The inside is also great. The happy hour is very good, great prices and good choices. The food is fine. I had the lamb lasagna tasty but couldn't tell was lamb. Other dishes were good but not fabulous but then I am very interested and fussy about food so a person less so inclined could have felt differently. I will most certainly return.

First time here. When we arrived the place was half full. They tried to seat us at a 2 top in a small corridor next to the kitchen. It was so congested the hostess couldn't get through to seat us. I asked for another table. She said we would have to wait. The only table is this half empty restaurant was dirty and we would have to wait while they cleaned. Poor start to a good meal. Not sure if this is a takeout market with a restaurant or a restaurant with a market

Very enjoyable evening, plan to return. Could have lived off the bread basket with the outstanding ginger trifle. I dont usually order dessert, was intrigued with the varied elements. Ginger cake, mascarpone, gingersnap gelato, whipped cream, coffee bourbon sauce; think Im mixed up on a layer or two but it was delicious. Mains were frutti di mare and chicken parm with spaghetti. Chicken was a bit bland and overcooked, the pasta and tomato sauce saved it. I was tempted by the bacon pizza, next time Im trying that. By the time we left the restaurant was full and fairly noisy, but not oppressively so. It was noise of happy diners.

We have eaten at Nicoletta's several times, and have found the food quite good as well as the service. In the past, I have found the portions to be quite ample. Tonight, one of us got the ravioli with ricotta cheese and mushroom special and one got the wild boar pappardelle. We felt the ravioli portion amount served was a little small, but the wild boar dish was served in a good amount. I think the biggest problem was the service which was rather slow after we were seated and ordered drinks. We didn't get water refills until we were done with our meals, and my husband ordered a second glass of wine to eat with his remaining part of his dish, and the wine wasn't brought until after he had already finished his dinner and told the gal then that it was too late. She said she "had to look for it" and that was why it took so long. Getting the bill, giving our credit card, and then getting the slips back to pay also took quite a while. The server was delightful when she was around, but it seemed to be some very long intervals between times she was available in our dining area.

Maybe, I'd recommend Nicoletta's. We were bothered by a fly all during our dinner, something I find unforgivable in an enclosed restaurant. Our insalatas verdes were very nicely composed and presented. The pizza margherita was underwhelming. The glasses of Barbaresco were over-priced for the quality of that juice. The prices for the salads and the pizza were fair. Again, I find flies in a restaurant a serious flaw. Otherwise, Nicoletta's is okay, if not great.

Always a great meal! Don't let the store front in the shopping center fool you, the inside is a really nice atmosphere and they have an incredible outdoor area in the back open all summer. They also have some nice private spaces including a charming room for about 8-10 I think.

Wifey and I had dinner there a few nights ago for her birthday. She had a ravioli and I went with the chicken parm. Both were very good. Our server was very nice, very courteous, and very accommodating, albeit a little slow. Cannoli's were good, although I've yet to find one's like we had in Rome. Would recommend for a casual, unfussy dinner that was really good and reasonably priced. Only complaint would be that the bus-crew are so loud when putting away dirty dishes, it can be distracting.

Nicoletta's Table is in a strip mall in Lake Oswego. You wouldn't know from the exterior how large and wonderful a place it is. We were seated at an outdoor patio that we didn't even know existed. The food was terrific, as was the service. Best of all, Shari Newman, the restaurant owner, was in that night, and came over and greeted us, and made sure that we were enjoying the food and the service. It's always nice to have an owner visit with the patrons to ensure that everything is going well. This restaurant doesn't have the street visibility that other restaurants in LO have, but it's one of the best dining experiences in the city, and well worth seeking it out.
