    They item I wanted wasn't on menu, and I described it to the server and they said it was whatever I mentioned, so ordered it. When it came out, It wasn't even close to what I described, very disappointed. Not sure if the server was really listening to what I said, or if they just had the name of the dish incorrect in their mind. I would think that the server would have realized the dish wasn't right when it was plated. Everything else was great, but the wrong dish placed a gloom over the entire evening.

    Just a wonderful way to celebrate our 49th wedding anniversary. Great meal, service and food. Everyone from the nice lady who greeted us at our table with water, and cleared our plates to our fantastic waiter, what a great place for an authentic Italian meal. This place has many regulars that return time after time and are always greated by the management. If you have not checked this great place out...you must! Thanks so much!

    The honeymoon had to end I guess. We had the worst veal Parmesan ever. It was obviously bought in bulk prebreaded and frozen. It was hard to cut and chew-dry and tasteless. I ordered extra red sauce and she forgot. Very little cheese on it. We were shocked Nicola would ever serve something so awful. We both took 90% to go and I asked for extra red sauce. She forgot again. Epic fail, Nicola!!!

    We love Nicola. I have been there multiple times. The menu options, the service, the friendliness of everyone, the consistent excellent quality are always on-point. We opted to dine out on Easter for the first time ever because of the special Easter menu. It was a great menu with lots of interesting options. I ordered the Tecchino (turkey breast rolled with mortadella and spinach). I would say the spinach-mortadella center was a bit bland and the turkey itself was overwhelmingly salty. But that did not alter how much we love Nicola and loved our Easter meal. It was a lovely day and we will be back again soon.
