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.

Once again a lovely evening on Nicolette's patio which a jazz band.
Our waitress Mimi was attentive and informative, and had the best smile!
Dori suggested a lovely wine to pair with our entrees. Their professionalism is so appreciated.

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.

We went there to celebrate my Granddaughters Birthday. The staff was wonderful, and presented us with a lovely glass of sparkling wine.
We look forward to going back the next time we are in Lake Oswego.

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.

Server meant well but was overwhelmed and unable to adequately meet the needs of our table and the table next to us. We waited for beverages, food, and she never checked on us after we got our food. She seemed to struggle with social cues and left us feeling awkward. It turned what was a special evening into something else entirely.

We've been for birthdays and anniversaries for 4 or 5 years. Always had a great experience. This time not so much. Our server admitted she was new to the job but no one has told her she doesn't get to have excuses for poor service. She took 20 minutes to bring glass of wine and said she was sorry but several people wanted wine at the same time. Not my problem. She was also slow at bring me some lemon and parm, which the seafood entree needed in the worst way. The scallops were done perfectly, the pasta was blah. I expected more basil and a bit more zip from the sauce. The green salad was really ho hum.
The calamari was perfect but why don't they serve it with a tartar or aioli sauce? The cocktail sauce would have been fine if it had more horseradish in it.

We made a reservation and were seated in a high traffic area next to the bar. Chair bumped a few times. The service was minimal. I had to ask about the specials. Mostly order, serve, place check and pick up check.
Their Bolognese was spicy with no dairy. That is not a Bolognese.
My mushroom ravioli was excellent.
Will try one more time.

Nicoletta’s does not disappoint in food or service....I do see they keep raising prices, and although I understand, it’s frustrating... my favorite lasagna crept up to $17... and my wife’s GF pasta with just vegetables is up to $26

So wanted to provide feedback this strikes me as high for pasta given the raw ingredient costs.

First time in Lake Oswago area. Very pretty area. Found the Nicoletta's Table on the internet. The only thing that was good was the Lemon Drop drink. The bread and Olive were not fresh and both were tasteless. The Lasagna was not freshly made. It was a frozen Lasagna reheated and put in a dish. The ravioli was just OK. This place was very disappointing.
