    You know when your waiter brings you a dirty martini in a wine glass and explains that all the martini glasses were still hot you expect a sub par experience. And Da Nicola delivered on my low expectations. Guess putting ice in the martini glass was an unheard of concept. Our waiter never told us the specials yet I heard him tell the table across from us so apparently there were specials. My husband and I ordered a salad to share and while I knew they would not divide it into 2 separate plates (not THAT level of restaurant) I would expect at the very least a serving spoon. Even our local pizza place does that. I will say my broiled salmon was very good but it’s broiled salmon. Not much of a culinary challenge. My husband’s pappardelle bolognese was drowning in sauce. Major no no in Italian cooking. It just seemed like we were being rushed yet what appeared to be Da Nicola’s “regulars” enjoyed good service. Will not be going back and definitely would not recommend.

    The reservation appointment was as scheduled. As busy as it is it’s not loud the service is terrific and the food quality is great. We’ve been there before and will be back again. A good experience

    This place has potential. Definitely GREAT (cap letters to show great interest) and I mean GREAT food! However the service was absolutely AWFUL! No water refill, no wine refill, no bread on the table, waited forever for the check, the staff was very out of sync how how they representing the restaurant. (I would have everyone in a unified uniform) hostess in Jeans and flannel top (where do they think this job is McDonald’s). But when the food came out, I was absolutely flabbergasted on how great the food is that I almost forgot about how awful the service was. Disappointed was exactly the word for this place, b/c the food is so great! I would come back again for the food. But will treat this place like a fast food place.

    Where should I start? - reservation for 6, sat at a table set for 8. The table was not promptly addressed until it was mentioned for a third time. - awful waitstaff, the waitress was clueless. It took her over 10 mins to even address us. When she finally came by we ordered a bottle of wine, a coke and a lemonade. She brought the wrong bottle of wine and NEVER brought the coke or the lemonade after mentioning it to her twice and even telling another waitstaff member. Also I understand there was a lengthy specials menu, but this was never mentioned to us at all. Not to mention, why would you have so many specials in one night? - the food was simply awful. No taste at all. Not a single dish out of 6! I guess the cook, not chef, forgot about salt and pepper. The grossly expensive seared tuna was possible the worst so have ever eaten. -mind boggling how this place was packed on a Tuesday. I can easily state my thoughts on this given the location, but simply put, the clientele must not care about money or the food they eat. I can go on and on………

    I took my mother there for the first time and was beyond impressed. The space was opulent, the service was excellent, and the food was absolutely delicious. The restaurant was spotless and prices were unbelievably reasonable. I grew up in Hewlett and now live in the city and this was by far one of my favorite recent dining experiences. Highly recommend to anyone whether for a date, a reunion, or an intimate birthday celebration.

    Delicious avocado salad with fantastic NY Italian bread can’t get anyplace else. My filet of sole with hint of garlic was outstanding. My wife enjoyed the pasta with vegetables. (Friday night in Lent) Our waitress Donna was the greatest! Made sure we got a personal pizza and extra bread for our daughter as we left to pick her up at JFK! Hope to return!

    Great food and service but unfortunately they do not honor reservations as I had to be persistent with the hostess and the manager in order to be seated. The manager was giving tables to his friends instead of to the patrons such as my self, with reservations. This is truly a disgrace and we will not be returning. This is quiet sad as the food and service was very good.
