Reviews for Nicola's

We went to celebrate a special occasion and while some of our food was fantastic (gnocchi, eggplant) other dishes were extremely disappointing (cacio e pepe, veal). Our waitress disappeared before our main course and we had no drinks - I gave my husband my water as I enjoyed the melting ice in my depleted cocktail. Understand many places are understaffed but when you pay top dollar at a top restaurant, you expect a bit more. Water at least.

My partner and I were extremely excited for our dining experience at Nicola's. We love Italian food and the reviews looked great. Unfortunately, we felt that the experience was quite bland. Nothing was wrong with our food, however for the price portion ratio, atmosphere, and overall experience was nothing to glorify. Pros: the bread basket was great and a must get. The little taste testers were a sweet addition to our meal and quite a unique blend of flavors. Also the wine full review

The vibe last night was weird which made this experience just ok. I dont know if I would go back. Cocktail was Cello 75 w/ orange flower tasted like perfume. I had The Grouper it was delicious. My friend had the Bolognese and she loved it, me not so much. We tried a dish with dark pasta, clams, lobster terrible no flavor at all. The breads were amazing and. The Lemon Tart was awesome also.
