Dinner for 4, 2 of us had the vermicelli with cream chili shrimp. Very good meal. So good, I didn't have any leftovers as I might normally. Salads with the dish, a bit of wine, and a very pleasant waitress.

I made a reservation for dinner for the dining room. When I arrived I was asked if I wanted to sit in the patio or inside. I said I would like the dining room. The staff member sat us in the bar. Very noisy with all TVs on . Service was spotty, food was warm . I go to Nicolinos fairly often. Will not in the future.

As usual the food was excellent. The service however was not up to par: the table had grit on it (granted it was on a patio) and the waiter ran the gamut from overselling everything to offering too much his personal life.

All 3 of us had enjoyable meals. We all had pasta dishes, one with wild boar, one was a daily special and the third was a wild mushroom dish. Each dish came with a house salad. Fresh bread to start. Service was good as well. The next table was a little loud at times and made it difficult to have a normal conversation.

5 of us had a delicious dinner on Sunday. Each of us ordered a different pasta dish. Each choice was absolutely outstanding. Each salad starter was fresh and tasty. We had a very helpful server. She was helpful, experienced and very professional. It was our granddaughters birthday. We brought a cake and at the end their presentation was great. 5 very full and very happy customers left the resto with a great impression and will be looking forward to returning very soon! Thanks everyone for making our celebration wonderful.

Best calamari we've had so far! Ask them to leave out lemons/dipping sauce (or put on the side), so they give more calamari. Meatballs, pizza, bread are delicious. Great place for friends/family/co-workers.

This was my first time going to Nicolino's. It was a special occassion for a special group of friends who were saying goodbye to one of us. The service was impeccable, with the waiter anticipating every need, and who described the delicious food to a "T." The food was incredible - a very authentic Italian food experience. The pasta alfredo sauce was spectacular and the homemade bread rolls just perfect. Everything about the place made our gathering so memorable, and I truly appreciate that. I will definitely return!!

The drinks were great. The 2 pasta dishes we tried weren’t the best. I can’t speak for the pizza which many tables around us had ordered, and looked very good. The service was good, we had 3 different wait staff take our food and drink orders. It was a busy night when we came and we were disappointed to hear that they were so backed up with orders that pasta likely wouldn’t be an option for 45 minutes, but that pizza would be made promptly. We had made a reservation and had both planned to order pasta so we said we would wait. Overall disappointed in this experience. I can’t say I will return.

We were absolutely delighted with our service. Food was delicious. Only disappointment was the seating arrangement. Granted, it was Valentine's Day, we anticipated it would be busy, but we were not expecting to"share" a long table with two other couples. Although an attempt was made to provide a "partition" between ourselves and the adjoining party, it was not conducive to a private conversation, by any means. Just thankful the young couple beside us were very pleasant and we were able to share a couple of moments that were not awkward...

Although a little noisy it remains a favorite.
When the manager came out at the end of the evening to refund one of our entrees ( many of the mussels had not opened), we were shocked - as we had not requested an adjustment. It was a very gracious gesture - and we were most appreciative.
It continues to be a restaurant that values its customers - and a reason we continue to go back!
