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.

Ambiance and service great and the cocktails were delicious, but just a heads up there are no gluten free options (besides an expensive side salad).

It was ok. Just had the pizza. Kinda bland we thought. Servers to eager to remove plates. My husband was still eating when the table was cleared. Will try again, maybe try the pasta.

Jen, our waitress, was wonderful to us - very efficient and pleasant! Excellent meals although still a very limited menu. Excellent cocktails and we hope that they will extend the bottled beer/draft choices.

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 !!!

The food quality is fantastic but for the prices for the portion size is off. For the price given there should be bigger portions.

The service is wonderful. attentive without being annoying. Food is very good, fresh and nicely presented. Outside seating was enjoyable. They maintain social distance between patroons. It has become my favorite local spot!

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.

Shared the Rhode Island Calamari as an appetizer—big mistake as they are TOO GOOD TO SHARE. The pizzas are immensely satisfying; toppings are fresh and flavorful. Nic’s is definitely an asset to the area.

The five in our party all enjoyed their meals. Our reservation was ready for us when we arrived and the we enjoyed drinks and appetizers first, before enjoying our meals. Great service, too! Nice to have an eatery like this in East Greenbush!

Food was delicious and fresh. Rice balls were excellent. Wood fired pizza was tasty and had nice texture. Calamari was well made, but would’ve benefitted from a little balsamic drizzle. The shrimp and crab pasta dish was also very good. Menu is small but interesting and unique. We enjoyed the new, clean and modern vibe of the restaurant. Servers worked together and were attentive. Definitely had a great experience and will be back in the future.

Nics food is freshly made and never disappoints! I love the menu because it changes a little bit every couple of weeks but never disappoints to give me another new favorite! Try the French press coffee with one of their desserts! So yummy. Can’t say enough about the fresh pasta, salads and luscious pizzas!!
