One of the best meals we have had in a long time. The crust on the pizza is so good, and the homemade pasta is phenomenal. Highly recommend the veal parm, hopefully it becomes a menu staple.

Excellent meal for my anniversary. I had the tagliatelle with lamb ragu and whipped ricotta and it was heavenly. My daughter had the white pizza with broccoli rabe, garlic mozzarella, and my husband the classic pizza augmented with sausage. The were light, crispy and sensational! Started with a fresh Allagash White witbier and ended with tiramisu. Excellent dinner and our first time there, but not our last!

It's not bad but it's not a 5 -Star Italian Restaurant. It's more of a 3- star take out pizza place in a strip mall that lacks a nice dining room. Service was good, food is good. I took my wife out to dinner got in trouble for the lack of a dining experience.

Two people in my party had the chicken pasta entree and we both noted and disliked the way the chicken was not trimmed. The chicken had nerve, fat and one could tell no time or detail was taken preparing it. I believed it was cooked, the bones removed and thrown in the dish. Not good. The sauce and noodles we're tasty. The appetizers were good. I think serving pasta with some serving of bread would complete a meal. I would try it again, but I would have to see improvements before I'd make it a regular eatery. A bit disappointed as my cousin is a regular patron and the pictures of the food always looked good.

We love the restaurant. The food is not only first rate. It is highly consistent with every single visit. The music is now played at a much lower level, enhancing the dining experience. The quality of the dishes cannot be praised highly enough.

This was our first time at Nic's, and it was great - meeting every expectation and then some. The ambiance provided the perfect balance for a cozy dinner, a destination dining experience, and a local gathering place where everyone would feel welcome. It's clear that Nic and co. have put their collective heart and soul into this establishment - it's the trusted, perfect recipe for gathering around good food and feeling safe and welcome that we all need. As we emerge from our quarantine routines, Nic's is a comfort zone of pasta classics with a twist, wood-fired pizza, and thoughtful cocktails that bring a smile to each sip. Nic's is hopping for all the right reasons - perfect for a date night or an evening out with your friends or the fam. We'll be back!

My friend and I ate at Nic's for the first time on a Friday evening, it was excellent! The food was delicious and the entire time was very enjoyable! The menu is not overwhelming and reasonable. Very impressive, highly recommend.

Everything we've tried has been delicious, from appetizers, to cocktails. Nic's Trattoria, appetizer the Rhode Island Calamari is the best I've ever had, and we love their wood fired pizzas. Everything is homemade from the pizza dough, to the assorted pastas. The staff is always attentive, and helpful.

I've been here a few times and have enjoyed it. My have only one complaint. The last time I was there I felt completely rushed. My girl friend also felt the same way. We went there to share a pizza and have a couple glasses of wine. The waitresses kept coming over asking if we were done. This happened on several occasions. It got to the point where it was very noticealbe they were trying to rush us out. I could see if there were people waiting for tables, but this was a Tuesday night and the place wasn't full so that was not the case.

The food is very good but they brought our entre way to soon after our appetizers. The table was small and we could not have apps and entre on the table at once...so had to box our entre...otherwise everything was good.
The noise level is a bit too much...had a hard time hearing our conversation

Menu very small. Had bucatini clam dish and still hungry after eating the small portion for $20.
Waitress when asked what martinis they could make just said only a reg martini and didn’t even go check with bartender. Aracini was very good though.

Not likely we would return. We didn’t have pizza which maybe that would be better than what we ordered.

Such a great addition to our town. Delicious cocktails, truly unique and yummy. The pizzas are amazing, dough on crust delicious and perfectly crispy, yet with that perfect amount of chew. Calamari coating light crispy with just enough spice from the jalapeños. Staff always attentive and really friendly and efficient. Only dish out of the 12 we ordered that wasn’t a hit was the tiramisu. Otherwise, perfection.

We made a reservation on open table . We were greeted by the hostess with a big smile. Our server (I think her name was Leah but I am not 100%- she had great tattoos)- was wonderful. I ordered the overcast - drink special- that was OUT OF THIS WORLD! My husband had a Manhattan. Everything was amazing- the Caesar salad- incredible. Seafood risotto- delicious- the pasta with clams.... too legit to quit! We will be back !!!

My fried calamari was delicious. We went at the end of the lunch hour. No other diners were inside. There were two tables of people dining outside. The waiter was great at explaining the menu choices, he was also quite patient with us and didn’t try to rush us out.

Loved the food. Staff was attentive, prompt and friendly. The plates and stemware are very nice touches. The drawback was the music. It took from the experience. No music would have been preferable to the fusion that was playing. In years of restaurant going, this is becoming an ongoing source of distraction. It takes over the experience, rather than adding to it.

Thank you.
