Nicolleta’s was recommended by a friend. We were celebrating our anniversary. The atmosphere, food, and service were wonderful. Now we will be the ones to recommend!

Friends who have eaten at Nicoleta’s have raved, so a group of us decided to give it a try. Fabulous...! Outstanding entrees, absolutely excellent service (congenial, knowledgeable, and accommodating - thank you, Sahara), lovely ambience in a rather nontraditional manner. Overall...a wonderful experience. Cannot wait for the next time.

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!

First time there. Very inviting place, though very busy Saturday night but the bar was available and was a great place to wait for our table. Service was amazing (Howie) and the food was top notch. Highly recommended! Sorry no pics

We normally dine in the room which is by the Kitchen. This time we were seated in the middle room by the Pizza Oven. We didn't mind the seating location. If was fun to watch the person make the pizzas. Anyway the wait staff in this room was not up to the same standard as we were used to in the other room by the kitchen. The 2 ladies you have staffed there are exceptional.
The waiter did not let us know of the specials or recommended anything good that night.
We also missed how the other ladies describe each dessert.
We did enjoy our visit. Next time though we will request to be in the dining room by the kitchen.

The food is great and the ambiance is amazing! The servers were excellent and very attentive. However, depending on where you are seated, there could be a decent amount of foot traffic and the noise. Despite that, the setting, service and food made it a great experience! A great place to check out for a special occasion.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
