“Nice surprise”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but very tasty food and super friendly staff. My husband had the Greek sampler and I had stuffed shells.

“What a nice surprise to the end of a long day”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

We stopped in Henrico, VA on the way to Emerald Isle,NC. After checking into the hotel, we stumbled upon this hidden treasure in Westland Shopping Center, right across the street from our hotel. As we were pleasantly greeted by Chris, the "maître d", he escorted us to our table and then gave us our menus, as well as his recommendations. His menu suggestions were spot on! All of the food served to our four person party was piping hot and delicious. The service was attentive and very accommodating. Very nice family atmosphere. Very surprised how empty it was on a Saturday evening. More people need to know about this place. Highly recommend the linguini salla note and Nicks rolls. And listen to Chris when he gives his recommendations. He never lies.

“Umm! So Good!”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

We travel to Virginia at least four times per year and ever since my cousin introduced us to Nick's Roman Terrace over twenty years ago, we make sure to stop in for dinner. Due to travel time, we have not eaten breakfast at Nick's but after reading other reviews, I think we will be making time on our next trip to do this. We LOVE Nick's! I agree with another reviewer that the décor is a little distracting but we go for the food and the model train, Christmas tree and strip mall location aside, the food is GOOD! The rolls, oh the rolls! They are huge, piping hot, made on location, and are the perfect vehicle to transport melted butter to your mouth. The salad is good: freshly prepared with an assortment of lettuces, tomatoes, pepperoncini, Greek olives, and homemade dressing. Do not fill up on rolls and salad as tempting as this may be because your entrée is on it's way and it is huge, hot and delicious. I typically eat one roll, get my salad to go, and take the remainder of my entrée with me for a repeat meal the next night. The Eggplant Parmesan is especially good as it doesn't suffer from either the greasiness or sogginess that characterize some other restaurant's preparation. It is served over spaghetti and Marinara, then covered with Mozzarella and baked. My husband thinks the Chicken Masala and Lasagna are very good but we have never been disappointed with anything we have ordered. The prices are reasonable and service has always been attentive. Overall, Nick's is a definite win!

“Nick's for Lunch - Brunch”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Nick's is tucked in a little shopping center on West Broad St and has very tasty meals. Our last trip there was lunch and it was delicious. The decor is well done and they have a separate bar area off to one side. The staff was extra caring and friendly. Lots to choose from on their menu.
We have not been to their Sunday Brunch yet but we have heard from friends that it is really good too. If you want to try somewhere different, get good food and good atmosphere...try Nick's out. It may quickly become your favorite little get away for reasonable priced good food. We've never tried to call ahead for reservations.

“Great Food, on a strip mall”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

Don't let the looks scare you, and when you enter there is always a Christmas tree and 3 huge chandeliers, I go to restaurants because of the food and not for the looks, try the Veal Marsala, or Scallopini, real good, reasonable prices, perhaps you will meet the owner which is quite a character.
