Nicola's continues to be one of, if not THE best Italian restaurant in the Keene area. The menu is expansive, and the appetizers - I recommend the mussels and the marinated shrimp - are outstanding. Portion size is not enormous, so don't plan on taking...More

Went to Nicola's with friends and sat in lounge area. My friends had pizza and salad with shrimp and really enjoyed them. I got the lamb shank over risotto and asparagus. The lamb melted in my mouth and the flavors melded together perfectly. My other...More

Nicola and Cheryl Bencivenga provide excellent food and service. Dining here is not cheap, but you will not be disappointed. If you want a light meal, including individually prepared pizzas, go to the bar where there are tables or join the regulars at the bar....More
