We retired to Italy from America five years ago. Every time we come to the states for a visit, we make it a point to come hear to dine. The food and service are excellent. We always enjoy the pasta fagioli soup and usually try...More

I've eaten here many times and love it. The food is delicious, prices are reasonable, and it's a lovely atmosphere. My particular favorites are the San Nicola salad and the tomato soup with crab....yum!

Classical Italian on the Main Line. Casual dinners, reasonably priced, with great service. I love the linguini with escarole, mushrooms and tomatoes, my wife loves the salmon. And the bread is to die for!

Their lasagna is my favorite. Get it almost every time! Ultra think pasta in gooey layers of cheese. Their sauce is wonderful! Always a big crowd there.

Excellent Italian food and outstanding original art make San Nicola a "one-of-a-king" dining venue. Chef Vito is "the real deal" authentic Italian food maestro. Lunch or dinner, Trattoria San Nicola is numero uno!

I grew up in New York and I'm Italian - so I don't recommend Italian restaurants without a good reason. Just try to Linguini marinara with shellfish. You will not be disappointed. The price is great. The atmosphere is good, the place is always crowded....More

We stopped by one Friday night (without) a reservation but were lucky enough to get 2 spots at the bar. The bartender is very friendly, quick, attentive, and accommodating. Most of the crowd seemed to know him so I would suspect that this is a...More
