Very small location in the center of old town, the food at Nic's was excellent, well prepared and without a long wait. Jesus was our waiter, and he was excellent and attentive. The Martini variations, mostly Vodka were tasty as well. Seating can be a little tight but not uncomfortable. Prices are higher than TA suggests but still reasonable for... More

Reasonably good. they have great reviews but I must have gotten them on a bad day. Had Filet and shrimp/lobster, the filet was the size of a large silver dollar, roulade was good ,shrimp cocktail "scrimpy" service was so-so. Have to want Italian food badly before I go back. Little pricey for what you get.

This is a difficult review to write, because I'm sure if I had spoken up earlier, my meal would have been replaced with something better tasting. I ordered the "Tuscan style" filet mignon. I have been to Tuscany and the steaks are thick, marinated in olive oil and spices and grilled medium rare. So I ordered it medium rare. It... More

Tonight our family dropped by for their Sunday pasta dinner. The eggplant Parmesan was great, as well as the dessert. Our server, Sarah, was excellent. Courteous, friendly and thorough. A great evening as usual at Nic's. We're locals, and it's a regular stop for us. We highly recommend it.

Good steaks & of course the Italian. The serve is excellent as is the food, & drinks. I'm never been disappointed there. But be aware they are usually busy, but worth the wait.

I tried the clam chowder prior to dinner and it was the best I think I have ever had. Our entree's were steak and chicken marsala----both wonderful !! Will return... More

We had an excellent evening at Nic's. The menu is nicely varied, many choices of wine by the glass as well as beers. Perhaps the highlight is the service. This is one of the rare restaurants where the staff adapt well to the customer. Very professional is standard, but if you want a more casual give and take with the... More

We discovered Nic's several years ago, and it's our favorite Italian restaurant -- even though it's 2 hours north of us. Every time we go, the food and service are fabulous -- which is why we always try to get there when they first open at 5 p.m. The menu is reasonably priced. This week we had their clam chowder...
