This has been our go to place lately. Whether we have 4 people or a much larger group, Nicola's doesn't disappoint. The service is always excellent and the food is tasty.

I went with my kids to celebrate a birthday and everything was wonderful. They even remembered we were celebrating a birthday from when I made the reservation and brought a birthday dessert without us mentioning anything.

The lunch special was delicious and with fish, salad, soup, and tiramisu, for only $11.95, a very good value! Also, Lexi was an OUTSTANDING server - give her a raise!

Really enjoyed a quiet Monday night at Nicola's. The food was fantastic. The service was very good. It was probably tempting to be overbearing on a quiet evening but the service was attentive and timed well. We will definitely be back.

Staff was polite, decor was nice, but for an anniversary dinner during a non-rush time (on a weekday), with few patrons, we waited longer than we’d reasonably like for the food. The appetizer came out quickly and was good. I’m not sure if it’s a stylistic choice to serve the bread room temperature with the oil, but there is something more endearing about starting with warm bread.

My entree of gnocchi with pear was good, my wife didn’t care for the seafood spaghetti, it went almost entirely to waste. In general I would say the food was good but not great.

Salmon was wonderful....lunch special is a great value. It was quiet, not crowded, and easy for 6 of us to talk. Good service from Hope.

Very poor service. One waiter was new and didn’t have ability to take our order or answer questions. Other waiter who was helping the new guy was very inattentive. Love the food and the atmosphere.

My comment is that I went with a Vegetarian person that could not eat cheese and all the feed we try to order even after mentioning my friend was vegetarian and could not eat cheese they could make a pasta for him that could be cheese free or dont have a tomato sauce with no meat...Normally Itailan restaurants are a good option for Vegetarian but that night did not workout that well...My fish was excellent and the eggplant as apetizer was very good too but it has cheese my friend could not eat..

Dining at Nicola’s is always a treat. Food is cooked to our taste, plus our wait staff always remembers our little quirks. We have found Nicolas to be both the pre-movie and/or post-movie dining spot as well as the simple “lets go have a nice meal out” spot.

What a delightful evening at Nicola's! The ambience is lovely, the waitstaff attentive, and the food was superb. The seafood risotto was cooked perfectly as was the fettuccini Alfredo. The wine selection was great (nice selection of white and red) and all in all, it was a relaxing evening with excellent food.

Nicola’s continues to be one of our most favored dining spots. For well over 5 years we have enjoyed our meals, service is outstanding from the moment we enter the doors till the time we leave. While we enjoy dining as acouple, we also never hesitate to invite guests to join us as we know they will be treated the same as we have always bee treated.

Food was good but small quantity for the price you pay. Pasta is cheap so why not give a little more.

Patio great, food good, service odd. Our server was flaky, forgot items etc, didn't know the risotto evening special and overshared info as well as seated herself at our table not once but twice as if she was a friend.

My husband’s brunch was wonderful, 2 eggs over medium, bacon and pancakes. I on the other hand ordered chicken parmigiana. The sauce was fine but the chicken had been way over cooked. Usually the chicken in this dish is very tender. I had to use a sharp knife to cut through the chicken breast. Will not order ever again from Nicola’s. Also, the bread they bring out to the table had zero taste. I did not bring home any leftovers and I ate very little.

Nicola’s is one of our favorite dining spots because every time we eat there we are never let down. Food and service are always top notch consistently top shelf. Lent time fish specials are great. Long time diners who will always keep coming back

Overall a good restaurant for a business dinner or lunch meeting. For an Italian restaurant I expected a larger Italian wine selection however. Too many California wines.

Nicola's is a special restaurant; always accommodating, great food, and outstanding service. Our server (Reed) always goes out of his way to ensure service to perfection. We highly recommend Nicola's for special functions in addition to normal dining.

Short on help that night for our table. Waiter had two large tables he was working and took most of his time helping them. Most of our food was satisfactory. My Chicken Parm was mediocre though. The chicken pieces were warm but over cooked and dry and place on top of actual cold rigatoni. I used to come here a lot when I had business in the area and never had food of this of low quality. Hopefully this was just a bad day for the cooks.
