    Expected a long wait but the food came out reasonably fast. Was amazing! The white sangria was super tasty! The bread was exquisite. And our server was knowledgeable about when each dish made it on their menu.

    Always enjoy dinner at Nicolino’s, which is why it is on my Top Ten List of Favourite Restaurants. Cream of potato soup was delicious, and temperature was nice and warm, although I would have preferred it to be piping hot. Breadsticks as per usual were absolutely delightful. I had 3! Feta salad is always fresh and tasty, but I should have ordered an appetizer size, too much salad for one person. Our server Ken brought his A game, and was extra attentive!

    The soup was tasty, but it should have been more blended; it had a lumpy texture! I enjoyed the pasta dish. The main dish came shortly after the soup had been served. I felt we were being rushed, it was a very busy place! I was appalled to see the filthy wall with obvious splatters on the wall. The glass door and doorframe were covered with fingerprints and whatever else. Then I noticed the large mirror was horribly smeared! The black cloth hangings were covered in dust. Not a very pleasant sight while you are fine dining!! The brain is questioning tithe cleanliness or NOT of the kitchen where our food has been prepared😳. Very disappointing! You have lost two more customers! You need to address these issues! Word of mouth can be damaging!

    We’ve enjoyed Nicolino’s many times throughout years, unfortunately this visit we experienced very poor service. It took 45 minutes for someone to take our drink orders, there were some larger parties in the restaurant that were given precedence over our table of 4. Unfortunate as we have enjoyed in the past, but may not return due to such a poor service experience.

    Excellent food and impeccable service. Not the best place to go for conversation though. My friend and I wanted to have a nice meal and catch up. It was quite loud in the dining room and then someone started talking/singing in the lounge through a microphone and it became impossible to speak in a normal tone. I found it unpleasant. It’s really too bad because the food is top notch and our server (Victoria) was wonderful.
