    This was my second time dining at Nicolino’s this week! The food was great, the service was good, and I will be back again soon! I can’t get enough of that feta salad!

    As per usual, my dining experience at Nicolino’s was great! Food was absolutely delicious, service was a little bit slower than usual. Our server was friendly, polite, knowledgeable about the menu, and attentive. We enjoyed the Burrata appetizer which was a special feature. Our appetizer was followed up with a Feta salad, which is my favourite salad at Nicolino’s. Our main course was pizza and cannelloni, both of which were delicious! Can’t wait to go again!

    We chose the patio. It is a bit noisy but OK. The couple we were with had never been and were impressed. Overall fare was very good, waiter Marco was attentive but not overbearing. Kitchen graciously made me a wild boar appetizer sample. In my world you guys are doing it right. Hadn't been since the mighty COVID struck. Thanks much.

    The food was outstanding! Not one at our table could say anything bad about anything. The house vinaigrette was delicious as well. Our waiter, Ken, was a gem, to us and for the restaurant! So knowledgeable, friendly, overall a wonderful experience. Definitely returning.

    Food was fantastic. Music felt more like we were at a bar; too bad there isn’t more of a divide between restaurant and bar for a choice of experience. Welcome at the door wasn’t particularly friendly: she took a call while greeting us and then didn’t talk to us. It felt strange.

    Our 1st time at this restaurant and we will definitely be back !! Best pizza I’ve ever had the chicken parmasean was outstanding. Restaurant was noisy but I’m not sure how that can be changed. Noisy means busy and that’s a great thing for a restaurant. Our server was very nice and very efficient.

    Food was really yummy with the only suggestion for the chef to consider using less salt since it was a touch saltier than necessary. Diners can always add salt, pepper, or sugar, but cannot remove them if they are already in the dish! Service was excellent and very attentive, but restaurant was really noisy. Thankfully, the wonderful server moved us to a quieter area. Great place for lunch if you make a reservation and have a guaranteed spot.

    Unable to evaluate food because left before placing an order. The service in this restaurant was atrocious. We were promptly seated but next to a banquet table of at least 15 very noisy customers. Our server when reviewing the menu to us told us that all the pasta was made in the restaurant and served al dente. My wife said she didn’t care for al dente pasta and asked if it could be cooked some more. The server responded that this could not be done because Italian pasta is always eaten al dente and she should select other dishes (this is nonsense because I am Italian, grew up in Chicago in an Italian household and we - including lots of relatives and in a lot of Italian restaurants - certainly did not eat our pasta al dente). At any rate he quickly left before we could even place a drink order and over at least ten minutes that was the last we saw of him. I asked one of the hostesses if we could see our server and she said she’d send him but he did not respond. At this point we began to walk out of the restaurant and our server came over and said that he hoped to see us again. Was this an attempt at sarcasm? At any rate he was a snooty, pretentious, disagreeable and offensive person and has no business serving paying customers.

    Birthday. Great service, great food. However, I Was very disappointed to hear you were going to start charging a plating fee if you bring in your own birthday cake! All your staff does is deliver the cake to the table and then only after having to be reminded that there is a cake that was well marked at the time it was dropped off. There is no surprise, no singing and the guests actually cut it and put it on the plates. As much as I love Nicolini’s and have just recently reserved for two special birthdays I have to be honest I will think twice reserving again as this practise that you now intend to enforce just seems to me to be a money grab!!!

    Been going to Nicolino’s for over 25 years. Hadn’t been i about 2 years. Reno’s etc. looked great. I was very disappointed they didn’t have Chicken Chile… hard to believe as it is in me of their signature dishes. Food was good. Just didn’t get what I wanted.
