    What is not to love about homemade pasta? The open atmosphere was very nice. You could smell all the wonderful food cooking. The drink menu covered all options. The food portions were large. Had to bring home the rest - but happy I get to eat it again! Would definitely recommend Nic's to friends & family. Will definitely return for dinner.

    A host/hostess at the front desk to greet and seat diners is needed. We entered and waited , while a large number of staff were huddled near and behind the bar. Later, we noticed other diners doing the same when entering. Food was very good, our waitress was very attentive.

    We are so happy that we discovered Nic’s Trattoria! My husband and I have had the food several times over the past few months; some eat in and some takeout. We have loved everything and they are really good about accommodating special requests. We love the chicken and veal parmigiana but don’t like smoked mozzarella and they use plain mozzarella upon request. We introduced 2 friends last evening to the restaurant and they loved their food as well. Among other things we had 2 orders of fried calamari and it is one of the best we’ve ever had. Would highly recommend Nic’s but make sure you make a reservation as it always seems to be busy!

    This was my 3rd visit to Nic's, the previous visits I had pizzas, which are fabulous! This time I wanted to try a pasta dish. I ordered the Gemelli with Broccoli rabe, fennel sausage, cherry peppers, garlic, parm and I was not disappointed. The homemade pasta is perfect and the garlicky, spicy sauce was wonderful. Definitely recommended!!!

    Great new place turning out world class pizzas and pasta. Fried shrimp app was great as well. Caesar was a generous portion but the raw red onion overpowered the dish. Will definitely be back.

    The service was impeccable, the food was delicious and the autumn spice margarita was the most creative, delicious drink I’ve had in a long time. It was strong but still so delicious!! We had the arancini, which were crispy on the outside and deliciously cheesy on the inside. And the pizza was phenomenal! I’m very picky and this was hands down the best eating out experience that I have had in awhile.

    We had a classic pizza for an appetizer to share it was delicious. Then we had the chicken parmesan which was also delicious. I just wish that they had a salad that went with the meal.

    The food is always excellent. We celebrated my birthday and had a wonderful meal. We started with the bread and stanching. Then our friends had the new chicken dish and chicken parm. My fiancé had chicken parm and I had the steak and risotto. We enjoyed the pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. Wonderful meal! The cocktails and wine were top notch too. This is One of my favorite restaurants!

    Had a craving for pizza and Nic’s didn’t disappoint. The wood fired pizza had a nice thin yet crisp crust, the sauce was great and the mushrooms were so good. I would highly recommend the Fungo pizza. Always pleasant staff, I will definitely go back.

    First time we went there they did not have any familiar beers but now they’ve added a favorite Peroni on draught which is great! Pizzas are terrific and one friend had rigatoni/pork dish which was very good. Nic’s is now a favorite of ours.

    Very surprising to find such authentic Italian cuisine in East Greenbush which with few exceptions is a fine dining desert. Very attentive staff, but not too overly hovering. Beautiful interior design in the restaurant. Nice ambiance. My Margarita was outstanding. My meal was delicious and served exactly how I ask for it. The cost was surprisingly reasonable. You impressed my husband which is very hard to do. Definitely will return with friends!

    Items not available on limited menu. Felt rushed to get in and out. Only stayed 45 minutes for dinner. Food was excellent. Service ok even though they had servers “standing around”. I have been to this eatery over a dozen times in the last 6 months. I will be taking a break for now……

    This was my son's choice for dinner. We chose the calamari for appetizer and "something" Diavlo pizza for dinner (the one with the honey). The appetizer was delicious and left me wanting more. Was pleasantly surprised with the pizza. I was a little reserved because of the honey, but it is was delicious! I was not expecting to be full walking away from dinner, but it was just enough food. The server was kind and attentive. Food service seemed a little slow, but that could have been because we were hungry or the full dining room or a combo of both. Overall, it was a little noisey, but like I said, the dining room was full, so to be expected. The value was on point! Moderately priced for good food. We will go back for sure.

    We always find something delicious to eat here from the youngest tough to please eaters to the parents. The food is great, the staff is very attentive, polite and nice. The cleanliness is amazing and I am pretty hard to please in this domain. We go here for most family and friends events. You get what you pay for. Great job to the staff.

    the food was incredible. you can tell a lot of time and effort was put into the recipes and ingredient selection. the freshest ingredients ever. I wish the ambiance was a tad more cozy. but it’s hard to let that get in the way once you take your first bite or sip. crisp and clean otherwise.
