Our party of six dined here this past weekend. We ordered six different entrees and not one of us liked our dinner. Service was rather disinterested as well. We visited the restaurant based on trip advisor reviews and the recommendations of some locals but this place was a real disappointment. Maybe they were having an off night but I wouldn't... More

Our dinner at Nicoletta's was absolutely wonderful! The service was excellent and the food was some of the best Italian food we've ever eaten.

This is a very good place to have dinner in Cooperstown. We were lucky to have had reservations as it fills up quickly. Our dinners were good, the service was good, and dessert and coffee also good. The pasta bolognese was very good. We were seated in the front and it was very drafty with the front door opening all... More

Came to Cooperstown for my husband's birthday. Dinner at Nicoletta's was delicious. The best eggplant parm I've ever had. The marinara sauce was amazing. My husband had mushroom ravioli which was also delicious (he allowed me a taste). Service was great!

We make a point of visiting this restaurant every summer during our stay at our northern residence. Wait staff are wonderful, food is exceptional, service is meticulous. You could not ask for better in this locale. I do not know if they offer WiFi but why would one want to spoil the dining experience and ambiance of this fine establishment?

Started with fried breaded artichokes, had veal Parmesan which was crispy and delicious. Very generous portion. Server was great.

We recently had dinner while visiting. Although it was off season and during the week, the restaurant was full. We enjoyed everything - clams and linguini, chicken alfredo and especially the chicken parm!

Nicoletta"s is one of many places to eat in downtown Cooperstown, but if you want a great Italian meal it is the only place to go. Their veal parmigiana is delicious with a generous portion of veal (real veal-crispy) and pasta ( it could use a little more "sauce") . The Sausage Italiano is also a culinary delight-great sausage with... More

The second time we've dined at this restaurant. Food and service were excellent. My wife had chicken Marsala which she thoroughly enjoyed. I had an entree special which was eggplant parmigiana with pasta and sweet sausage. We both had Manhattan clam chowder which was very good but could have been a little warmer. Highly recommend and would definitely fine there... More

It was a bit awkward at the outset as we were the first guests and subsequently asked for different seats. The service was also annoyingly slow at the beginning but our food arrived in proper order without crowding the previous course. To be fair we were early for dinner as we had to leave town but sought a great dinner... More
