I have been to Nicola' with some friends. The place was suggested to us by a local friend and he obviously could not get wrong. The food is great and the price is right. If you are in Chioggia I really suggest this place.

From the moment I walked in I noticed a bunch of locals and heard the local accent: good sign. The fish is cooked to perfection. Great relaxed vibe. Excellent wine della Casa. Maybe a menu would help the choice of foreigners.

I happened to be here. It was an ordinary Thursday evening, and I was looking for a restaurant where eating fish. Going straight to the point I ordered "the famous boiled fish". Awesome. I was recommended by the chef. Second, I took the squids with a very delicate cream with artichokes, delicious. Wine: Chardonnay vigne di Zamò, excellent with fish!... More

Osteria da Nicola was recommended by our local host, so we made reservations and were very excited to dine here. We were seated immediately upon arrival and then ignored for almost 30 minutes. I got the attention of one of the wait staff and ordered water and tried to order a bottle of white wine. We were then told that... More

It is very disapointing for us to read all those things, especially because we asked if everything was ok . For all other things... Well I told you that you would have to wait, also because at the same time had arrived 5 tables all together . I perfectly remember all things we have in the menu, even if our... More

Nicola, the cook, is an amazing person... good ingredients and creativity is the recipe for a great gastronomic experience in this little but nice Osteria in Chioggia. Great place to indulge on seafood and fish of the region... forget about the bill, even that one is a nice surprise!!!

One day trip from Padova to Chioggia. We were disappointed with Chioggia but then we entered in Osteria da Nicola. First impression: clean and nice place. Than we've asked for menu and waitress just called Nicola. No menu!!! Based on a lot of previous bad experiences we expected some kind of Italian trick. Nicola came and in a just few... More
