Despite leaving 2 msgs to call back to book a reservation, no call back - so booked via open table and received booking confirmation - turned up and the place was closed. Rude man out the front said only open for dinner despite my groupon was specifically for lunch only and he said I did not have a reservation. We specifically wanted that day and now have a groupon we cannot use so we are not happy. They could have called us back or sorted their booking system to NOT take bookings. Extremely poor customer service

Loved dinner at Nicolini's this NYE! We were looking for a good old school Italian place that was low-key and very relaxed, and Nicolini's was perfect. I had spaghetti bolognese which was perfect, and my friends had a mushroom tortellini ("amazing") and a chicken parma ("great"). We also shared salad and garlic bread and it was just what we needed to prep for a night of partying. Will definitely visit again next time we're in Surfers. Oh, and we also had some great cocktails!

We had a fantastic dining experience at Nicolinis. They went above and beyone in service even runninga cross the road to get marshmallows for my fussy daughter. A very large group arrived just as we were finishing up so the noise level did increase and there was a problem with one dish being spicy when that diner requested non-spicy.
Otherwise, a great experience, would definitely recommend and dine here again.

Excellent as always. Its a shame that there are not more visitors around to make the place buzz a bit more with atmosphere.

Meal was good and service was very good. It was quiet in the restaurant which was good as if was a catch up with friends.

We had a double birthday for my son and nephew. The tables were set up with balloons which my 7 year old absolutely loved, and there was lots of room for all our family. The staff were so helpful and accommodating considering we had a toddler and a baby in our group. The food was delicious and I would highly recommend dining at Nicolini’s. Do call ahead if you have a large group.
