Five friends dropped in to Nicolinos on a Tuesday night after hearing a fantastic singer at a local bar. The atmosphere is perfect for having a great time. We ordered an appetizer, enjoyed the fantastic garlic bread and a bottle of vino and laughed ourselves sick. Service was fun and professional..the food was excellent. Pizza thin crust and delicious.

This no-frills eatery not far from downtown P.S. offers a huge array of Italian dishes that could've come from Grandma's kitchen. Nothing high-end, either price-wise or quality-wise but lots of it. (My order of penne was enough for two!) The service was brisk and not especially warm, but the food was hot. The place wasn't busy but I could imagine... More

Yucky! Some of the worst Italian food I've ever had. The place itself has an okay bar area with a happy hour which has many options. We started with caprese salad. The mozzarella quality was relatively low and the tomatoes were not great. Balsamic was runny. PIzza was not that great either. The sauce was truly awful. I would never... More

We sat in the bar. Service was slow. From example we had to ask for the bread that had been promised 15 minutes before by the waiter. My pasta was not only al dente, it was so undercooked it could have broken my dente (dente=tooth in italian). Lots of better restaurants in the area.

Walking in to Nicolino's reminded me of all the family restaurants making up Little Italy in NYC - and that's a good thing. Our group was hungry after spending most of the day traveling it was late afternoon and we decided on an early dinner around 4:30. We were promptly greeted, escorted to a table in a back room with...

There was live entertainment in the front which seemed like the lounge and it was all right if you want to go listen to music but it was very loud and would make conversation very difficult. Seating in the back is good with quaint decorating. We had called ahead to make a reservation but when we arrived there was no... More

This is our second time visiting this local restaurant and we will definitely go again. The Italian Sausage and Peppers dish, Veal and Chicken Picatta dish and Spaghetti and Meatballs were delicious. When we arrived, there was only one table left, the restaurant was full! The entertainment was great and people were dancing. Fun place to bring family and friends,... More

After reading the ad, we made the decision to give it a try. I had the calamari steak which I had not had for several years and found it satisfactory though not great. I would go back and try something else as the atmosphere was appealing.
