Nicolino feels like a bistro in Europe. The tables are small and intimate. There's a beautiful mural on the wall. When the weather is nice, the ristorante has a great brick patio on which to dine. The place possesses a lot of charm. The wait staff is very friendly and gives you space if you need it for conversation or for food decisions. The wine choices are decent. My partner loved the chicken marsala with fettucine. I'm allergic to wheat so my food options were limited to some of the antipastos, salads, and the chicken risotto, which was delicious and filling but not overly so. (Good portion sizes). I'd go here again on a date night.

This place is absolutely wonderful. The atmosphere is incredibly romantic and my husband and I come here every year on our anniversary. The food is to die for and the waitstaff is welcoming. I would highly recommend this restaurant to any lovebirds out there!

Excellent wine, food and service. Romantic and cozy but very small so make reservations! Their seafood is excellent and so is their pasta. They have a very good wine list for such a small place.

Nicolino's could just as we'll be on a small street in Rome. It's small, busy and cozy. The food is homemade and delicious. We split a Salad and then each ordered the clam with linguini dish; Fabulous if you like Pacific Northwest clams.
The pasta tasted homemade. The service was prompt and friendly and the wine pour was generous. This is a small restaurant so you may have a wait on a busy night. It is tucked into Gilman Village. They do not take reservations.

Tucked away in the Gilman Village shopping center, nearly behind an Indian restaurant, Nicolino Ristorante is worth the effort to find.

Food: excellent and everything was house-made. Salads and soups were as well-prepared as the main courses, ranging from pasta to beef to fish. Food was perfectly seasoned.

Service: our server was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable--he's obviously been in the food industry for some time and made excellent recommendations including wine choices.
Dinner courses were timed perfectly and we never felt rushed. Note that they do not take reservations- it's first come, first seated, but if you have a large group, call ahead and let them know--they will accommodate you if possible. It's a wonderful place for a family dinner or special occasion.

Environment: although the decor is a little tired and the restaurant can best be described as cozy, we have never felt anything but welcome and comfortable in this place. Outside dining on the patio is lovely during good weather months. Acoustics inside are just fine, even with a full house.

I just hope they don't become so popular that I can't get a table!
