Dining in Englewood was one disappointment after another -- and we ate at all the restaurants highly recommended on Trip Advisor (which has never let us down so consistently as in Englewood). Nicola's is a very good red sauce Italian restaurant, with one exception-- the desserts were unbelievably wonderful. My husband is still talking about the chocolate torte, which he... More

Good solid Italian American eatery with plenty of veal, chicken, meatball and pasta selections. I could not finish my Veal Parmesan and the happily made it with their Fra Diavalo sauce. Other diners also enjoyed their meals and took home leftovers. Desserts were boxed to go as we had no room. Highly recommend this restaurant!

We had heard that you have to get to Nicola's Italian Kitchen early during the season. We were there in mid-February. We arrived about 6:00, but we didn't get a table until 7:45. We were told the wait would be just an hour. When we did get a table, we decided it was worth the wait. There were lots of... More

The pizza was super good! The kids had fun coloring and eating pizza, while the adults were able to enjoy nice conversation, good beer, and delicious pizza. Home town feel and very relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely return!

We have eaten here many times in the past 3 winters. My husband is very fond of the pasta dish named for their grandfather and I particularly like the eggplant Parm which is thinly sliced and cooked in the pizza oven, so crispy around the edges. Broccoli Rabe or rapini is an appetizer and I get that every time. The... More

This is a very busy place. Expect to wait for a table most nights. Go before 6 pm. The staff is friendly. The food was good not great. The wine was very over priced. We will try this restaurant again.
