Two of us arrived w/ a dinner reservation at 7:30 on a Monday. Most tables were occupied when we arrived, most when we left. Make a reservation! We were immediately given a nice table by the sidewalk-facing front window, menus, and water. All the staff were friendly and professional. The food, unfortunately, had little to recommend it. The "sliced tomato"... More

Gentle atmo, solid Italian menu, good wine list, charming and knowledgeable servers. We've dined here a half dozen times over as many years, and the place never disappoints. It's worth the hassle of finding a (legal) parking space and weaving among hot dog and souvenir emporia to spend an evening here.

Compliments to Nicoletta's on a terrific meal on Saturday night of HOF induction weekend. Conveniently located on Main Street in Cooperstown, it is a quiet respite from the hubbub of the street. We felt fortunate to receive a reservation, which we made about 3 weeks before the weekend. The food was excellent and the choice of wine was first-rate.

We had a family group of twenty people ages 1 to 92 at Nicoletta's during a fairly busy dinner hour at the end of July 2014. I won't write a long review, but I must say that this was really a great choice. We had two tables of ten. The food was just wonderful - one of the best Italian... More

Cooperstown is not a gourmet destination but if you want a local spot with abundant well prepared home style Italian food this is the spot for you. Here red means red. Attentive staff is courteous and professional. And maybe you will get to rub shoulders with baseball stars,

We came here during our Dreams Park week. We wanted to go somewhere descent. Since we didn't have any kids we decided to splurge a bit. Since the reviews were good on TA we decided to give it chance. Nicolletta's is located on the main drag in Cooperstown. It's a store front restaurant and it's much bigger inside than you... More
