Nicky's Coal Fired
This was a fun girls’ night out to celebrate a birthday And was our first time to Nicky’s. Dakota provided great service and wonderful suggestions. We will definitely be back!
Hearing about the day’s events of the people next to me was cool and everything, but I came just to relax...
We went with my family and they were so accommodating!! They moved our table to the pizza bar bc my 2 yo was so entertained by it :) the food was amazing and prices just right!
We love Nicky's! The staff are friendly, the atmosphere is cozy. Just make sure you make a reservation, as the chances of walking in on a weekend are nearly none. We always order the Mama's Meatballs as an appetizer. As an Italian-American, these are the closest in this city to Italian meatballs (well done). Make sure you save room for Gelato, my go-to is always the bourbon-peanut is one of my favorites!
You won't be disappointed with your time at Nicky's!
I was excited to try this place after seeing so much love on instagram, however our experience was not that pleasant. We had taken an uber to the restaurant for a 5pm reservation. When we got there ( 4:52pm)we stood in the entry way, completely ignored for around 15 minutes. When someone did come to the front, they never greeted us or sat us, but when people behind us spoke up they began seating them ahead of us! Our waiter was excellent and the food was OK ( 3 of us thought it was OK and 1 thought it was excellent) but because of the rough start and blatant rudeness, I would not return nor recommend it to a friend.
Great meal and service
The restaurant has a great loft feel vibe. We went on Valentine’s Day and did the four course dinner. It was fabulous. Also had signature cocktails they were exceptional. Our waitress walked up to the table welcoming us like we were long list friends. It was one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in a long time and we live by San Francisco!
My husband and I attended the special Valentine's Day event and were completely blown away by the offerings...everything we had was superb - the taste, the presentation, all of it. We love to try a new restaurant for special occasions, and rarely return to the same place twice, but we will DEFINITELY be back at Nicky's Coal Fired! Best meal we've had in 20 years of celebrating Valentine's Days together, that's for sure!
Delicious food, great service, cool environment. We will be back!
Man. So impressed by this place. Simple, delicious food of the highest quality and the BEST aperitif/amaro selection in town. The service is exceptional, too!
The overall service was pretty terrible. My girlfriend's food came out 30 minutes prior to mine and this was due to the fact that they burnt my pizza twice. On the third try it was only slightly burnt. We did not find this out until the manager brought the final and only slightly burnt pizza to the table. There wasn't a wait for a table, as we had a reservation. However, I would not recommend this place to anyone. My girlfriend's pasta was hard, the pizza sauce was runny, and the food was just very underwhelming.
Wonderful food and service
My daughter, husband and I ate here Saturday since it was national pizza day and we wanted to try a new place! I found this place on Instagram and I’m so glad I did! We had a meatball app, my husband and I shared a pizza and my daughter got her own kids pizza. It was so delicious. The cocktails are amazing too.
Overall great experience. The Paisino pizza was tasty and unique. Yummy.
One of our Nashville favorites -- based on how much we eat there, it probably is our favorite. Best pizza choices include: Iceland is Green; St. Pasquale; Calogero T. Watkins.
Great venue. Really good food. Really good service. Must go!
I love that they are serving brunch! It was fantastic.
The pizza was delicious, as was the house made charcuterie. Would go again
Great service and good food! Focaccia bread is a must have.
As always, the pizza was amazing!! The service is always great and they are very attentive. Nicky’s is one of our favorite date nights.
very good service, apple and squash salad was excellent, pizza was a disappointment - bland dough, too much tomato sauce
Delicious food and great service! Will be back!
Prosciutto and cheese was great! Margarita Pizza was also but the mushrooms were diced such that they were flavorless... Also had to send my Tanqueray and tonic back as it was virtually gin-less. But no one complained. We live to far to make it regularly but really like it and have been told the pasta is super.
Jeffery was and excellent server. Good recommendations, attentive. Lardo was delicious, everything crackers great match. The supreme pizza was very good. Energetic, fun atmosphere.
It was fun to try new food - Dakota (waiter) was friendly and helpful - so was the woman who seated us. We always appreciate staff recommendations - we like know what they like to eat. I am not much of a foodie but I do appreciate trying new things and I like that local farmers are supported. There was a bit of a wait to get served but the staff clearly was working hard. The food was worth the wait.
Promptly seated. Service was perfect. Really loved the HEY PAISANO with the spicy honey.
First visit ! We were looking for authentic wood fired or coal fired pizza . We r from Memphis , Hog and Homany the best . This is the only thin crust pizza in Nashville worth eating .
Jared was an awesome server. He explained the menu in detail and gave great recommendations. Food was great, charcuterie and pasta were stars and the pizza was just ok.
This place it great! Food was super tasty and prices are very reasonable.
We had a reservation and the restaurant was not packed by any means, but we still waited 25 minutes to be seated. They did give us some complimentary appetizers for the trouble which was nice. Our server just wasn’t that friendly. She may have just been having a bad day, but that’s what stuck out to us. The food was good and I like the rustic ambiance.
I've been looking for an Italian spot since moving here 4 yrs ago -- This is it -- from the pizza to
pastas to gelato everything made in house and just awesome !! To just pop in, sit at the bar
have one of the wonderful cocktails and a pizza or have a complete dinner, Nicky`s will
Really great pizza! The pumpkin risotto was also extremely good. Service could have been a bit more on point, but we will definitely be back.
We love pizza from Nicky's. We've been there numerous times and it has never disappointed.
I was so looking forward to this restaurant but was disappointed with a few things. Ordering wine was an ordeal because they were out of my first four selections. Why bother having a wine list if you can’t accommodate your customers? Our server was very good and apologetic about this ordeal. The pizza and meatballs were good. The cauliflower lacked any seasoning so we used salt and pepper to make it palatable. I received an email that our open table reservation had been cancelled. I went to the hostess stand to ask why I would receive this email and had to ask one of the chefs to track down the hostess. When she appeared she apologizes and told me she didn’t know why this would happen and “I must have pushed a wrong button”. There are so many great restaurants in Nashville and unfortunately we wasted a night on vacation with a mediocre experience.
Tough night for them. Food was never served after 1 hour and 30 minute wait. Kitchen could not handle the number of parties the restaurant booked. Can’t recommend the place.
Went on Sunday night. Service was solid with a knowledgeable waiter. The meatball appetizers were great.
The pumpkin risotto and margarita pizza were both divine.
Good vibe w/great attitude. Highly recommend!
Great place for dinner with a group. Highly recommended
Pizza was outstanding
The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Will definitely return!
In town from Dallas to visit family ... we dined at Nicky’s ahead of the 9:30p Opry @ the Ryman on Saturday night. First time we have been to Nicky’s.
There was a large Birthday party and we were seated in the same room as the party, unfortunately, despite other open tables. The noise level was really high! The birthday revelers were very kind, regardless.
However, Lindsey was a fantastic server and made us forget about how loud it was in there. The food was magnificent!!! I’m still craving that pizza and best meatballs ever!! Ever consider opening in Dallas??
Definitely will come back when we are in Nashville again!!!
