Glad we turned around and went back. Really good Italian menu with all you would expect and more. I had just the simple spaghetti, meat sauce,and meat balls. The garlic bread knots were great. We went for lunch and it was MORE THAN ENOUGH food and all was good. I would call this one a sleeper. Don't miss it.

We called ahead and were seated shortly after arrival. Wait staff was very friendly, wine list was exceptional and prices modest. Our meals arrived quickly and the food was great. Lots of flavor, plenty of food and nice atmosphere. Definitely will return and would strongly recommend this place to my friends

Year rounders and snowbirds are welcome here. Well prepared Italian food, seating is a bit crowded however that is a testimony to how popular an eatery it is. We always go for the evening meal. They can accommodate groups of six or a bit more but the majority of their settings are for two or four. I can't recollect seeing... More

We haven't been to Nicolas's for a couple of years. In the meantime it has been refurbished but retained the ambience of an Italian trattoria. The food is authentic Italian, well cooked and flavourful. Good selection of wines and beers. Well worth a visit.

That they don't take reservations is probably the only negative comment that can be made about this family owned restaurant. The atmosphere is quaint; the tables always full; people who appreciate good food come here to enjoy the kind of food Italians nonnas are known for. If you really enjoy "hot" arrabiata type foods, ask for the hot oil. There's... More

Very busy and noisy on a Monday night, but we only had to wait about 5 minutes to be seated. Ordered lentil soup, eggplant parmesean and sautéed calamari with white wine sauce. Soup was excellent, very hearty, with perfect spices. Both entrees came with a small dinner salad and small tasty garlic bread cubes. Eggplant was extremely salty but sauce... More

We go here whenever we crave Italian food and it's always great . It's a busy spot though especially in spring. We often go and just sit outside and enjoy a wine while we wait for a table. The linguine with white clam,sauce is my favorite.
