Always perfect crust and such a nice atmosphere. Most delicious sauce and a wide variety of toppings. My favorite pizza in Orange County.

One large pizza is more than enough for four people but we couldn't decide on a flavor so we got two. The perfect thick crispy crust, with oil and vinegar on the table to dip you "pizza bones" in. I'm sure this will be a visiting again soon.

I went to enjoy a nice meal at Nick's Pizza and chose the Melanzane Parmigiana (eggplant parm)plus a glass of resling wine. The eggplant was thick, chewy, undercooked and less than ordinary. The wine was just okay; the sauce was disappointing, as well. I should have stuck with the pizza --it seemed popular.

This place has excellent pizza and pastas. It's not a thin, Neopolitan-style pizza that is so in vogue now; it's a thick crust pizza. They have separate entrances for dine-in, and to-go orders, so the two aren't getting in each other's way. My only grouse is that they don't serve affogato. They have a freezer with spumoni ice cream, and... More

Love the food, the service and the Italian ambience. All the pasta dishes are very tasty and their servings are big. My husband and I usually share the antipasto salad and a small pizza. The salad has generous amount of Italian cold cuts and cheese along with the greens and vinaigrette. We love their pizzas too and their crust is... More

This Italian place makes some of the best pizza I have ever had. It is a go to spot every time I go to Los Angeles. Try any pizza and you won't be disappointed! They make their food with love!!!

Nothing fancy, just good tasty food at a fair price. If you get a pizza,they charge the same price for 3-5 toppings so get 5 toppings!

Stopped in on a recommendation of their pizza. We love family style no-chain pizza/Italian restaurants. The pizza was excellent. There was just two of us and we ordered a large. We were hungry! We took home half of it. The dough is very hearty, but a very good rise and texture. The toppings are of very high quality. I love... More

Went with wife and friends to Nicks yesterday for the first time. Definitely going again. We were there for dinner. Lamb chops delicious. Nice burn on the outside pink and juicy inside. Mussels were so fresh and tender, the sauce they were in was so great we soaked it all up with our bread. Clam linguini, veal excellent. Service a... More

What an amazingly delicious surprise! Ordered a large and it was seriously weighed 10 pounds! It was the best pizza we've had in forever! They even had gluten-free for Mom! I was lost and the staff stayed on the phone until I found my way, and stayed open late for me! Thank you Nick's!!
