Nicoletta's Table and Marketplace
Had a reservation for 815pm. Arrived on time and was told there was a 10-15 minute wait. 30 minutes later still waiting. Open tables visible from where we stood. A couple came in behind us, demanded a table and got one. The only reason we were seated was because I got upset and asked if we had been forgotten. We were finally seated, but with no apologies from staff, no offer to make it better. We live close, but will never go back!
Service, food and ambiance was excellent!
Some of the best Italian I’ve had in Oregon. The service was amazing and I loved the ambiance. The open kitchen is very cool, as you can see your food prepared in live time. The gnocchi with lamb ragu is one of the best meals of my life. Legitimately a top 5 plate I’ve ever had.
We had a Valentine's day lunch. Our waiter was wonderful and tried very hard to provide service to all his tables. The restaurant was completely understaffed for a holiday noon hour. We were delayed returning to work. Lasagna was average. Dishes were not at all like our first experience. Big decline.
Good food, great service, diverse menu. Staff friendly and everyone made us feel welcome. Highly recommended.

We met as a group of 8 friends for a pre Valentine's dinner. We had hoped for a private room, but none were available . The noise level was pretty high but we were able to enjoy the evening together. Our server, Matthew, did an excellent job - describing the specials, answering questions about the menu and was particularly helpful to our gluten free friend. The food was wonderful- everyone was pleased with their selections, particularly the fresh tuna special. My husband and I always enjoy our meals at Nicoletta's and we were so pleased to bring friends who had never been before. Everyone had a great experience and we plan to do it again.
I do recommend Nicoletta's to friends, and it's a great place to take out of town visitors. Great menu, outstanding service and appealingly rustic ambiance. I particularly enjoy the butternut squash ravioli and green salad with candied walnuts.
We were in a private room so it was quiet.
Great food and the service (Mimi) was outstanding!
We have dined here several times and the experience is always wonderful. The service is professional, the food is fantastic. My wife loves their bread basket, especially the crackers. This has become our go to Italian restaurant in Lake Oswego for lunch and dinner.
Such a great experience! They had champagne on the table waiting as I requested for our 3rd anniversary date. Great wait staff, very knowledgeable, and the food was outstanding! Highly recommend if you have not dined there yet.
Great food and service! Cozy atmosphere.
This is our go to. Food is excellent and the staff are amazing.
We took friends to Nicoletta's because we knew we'd enjoy ourselves. Great food, tasty drinks, great service! What more's there to say.
Always consistent and welcoming. We entertain or have date night here often. Great wine and food. Service is impeccable.
I enjoyed the spinach salad for lunch and it was delicious! I love the bread they serve with it too.
The food was excellent but too much on a plate for me ( I am 88 )
Seemed like chaos. We had a seat in front of the kitchen which was very odd and not exactly ideal. When we arrived there was only four tables or so full. Forgot to put in our order. Waited long time for food. We will try one more time to see if perhaps they were just off that night. We had heard it was a great place to eat. It was our 31st anniversary so we thought it would be a totally different experience.
Excellent place for a dinner! The entrees were great especially the lamb lasagna.
Excellent service. Table adequate because of noise but food was outstanding. We shall return.
Despite having a reservation, we were placed at a terrible table, waited too long to for service, the food was disappointing- salad lettuce wilted and hamburger burnt. Overall bad experience and will not go back.
The food and service was excellent. I love watching the food be prepared and the beautiful kitchen.
They were super busy, but we had early reservations, and all went well...we got our favorite table, by the bar too! Can’t think of a negative...all good.
Food was very good...our out of town guest enjoyed her visit...we will return
Food decent—nothing standout. Price creates expectation for standout.
Nicoletta's is always good with great service and ambiance. Delicious!
Nicoletta's has morphed from a tiny market with a few tables to a warren of wonderful rooms, filled with hidden tables and great atmosphere. The food is excellent, some of it sublime, and the wine list is first rate and extensive.
The food and service was/is amazing. This is one of our favorite restaurants. Can be a bit too loud.
Birthday lunch with my sisters. Prices for lunch seem higher end - $14.50 for cup of soup and 1/2 sandwich or salad combo? (However, the Italian sausage soup was BOMB!) BUT - it is in Lake Oswego, so maybe the local residents are used to it. Our waiter was excellent - attentive but not intrusive. We did ask for a basket of their delicious bread (it's not served automatically at lunch, only dinner). And I received a delicious scoop of espresso gelato as a complimentary birthday dessert. There is a nice selection of (mostly Italian) wines available for purchase, and some pre-made pasta and other dishes in a cooler available for "take and bake" (expensive, but probably delicious). Located in a strip shopping mall, and they seem to have expanded into other spaces over the years, so a lot of room. Parking is challenging - narrow spaces and lot was nearly full when we got there around 11:45am. And making a left turn onto State Street is tricky. But overall, a wonderful and delicious experience and will recommend to others; hope to return for dinner sometime.
Delicious food, great wine pairings, and the staff are always incredibly friendly and helpful!
Wine was expensive, but otherwise food was very good.
Great atmosphere & food!
You guys rock! Food was great; servers awesome; atmosphere delightful
Bad news: waited for 20 minutes for my table to be readied while I watched 3 other groups with reservations at the same time as mine get seated immediately. Good news: given a free glass of wine while I waited. Bad news: we were seated on the edge of the dining room which was akin to sitting in the middle of grocery store. Good news: our wait person was delightful. Bad news: carbonara portion was small and you needed a magnifying glass to find the bacon (too small to see if it was pancetta). Good news: clam/mussel appetizer was delicious. All in all a definite 3 stars for me.
A favorite place for tasty Italian. Something on the menu for everyone.
We sat in the private room since there were six of us and thus it was quieter than the main rooms, which can be noisy. The service was pleasant and wait staff excellent. The food very good although at times things have been spotty (other visits). I'd like more variety in the menu with more choices but other than that, it is a convenient and reliable good restaurant.
Great service, food was phenomenal!
Great food n good service
Cramped and a bit noisy
Expensive but worth it
