We moved away many years ago, and it was such a treat to dine here again. Jessica, the owner, still "gets it" when it comes to great Italian food with an intimate, yet vibrant atmosphere. BTW, our food was outstanding

Excellent family run Italian restaurant. Very busy on a Wednesday night, very enjoyable Italian waiter, nice wine selection. Had the veal special and it was excellent and very tender.

Recently did a quick take out dinner at this restaurant for four. The food was delicious and large portions. The wait staff were excellent. Would definitely visit this restaurant on another trip.

Several years ago, I worked in Issaquah and went to Nicolino's at least once a week. I had not been back for the last eight years, but mad a point to stop there for lunch to see if it was still the same exquisite taste. It was - from the seasoned oil to dribble onto the bread while waiting, to... More

We were spending the evening in Issaquah en route to the airport the next morning. The food was very affordable and an excellent meal. I am Italian and very picky with my Italian food. It was delicious. The sauce and service were great. We ordered Chicken Parm and Chicken Marsala along with a salad - we took the order to... More

Enjoyed dinner with colleagues while traveling in the area. Menu is typical Italian restaurant fare and fairly extensive. The food was good and portions generous. The meatballs were a bit dense for my taste, otherwise no complaints. Much better than any chain Italian place, but not as good as what you'd find in the Italian neighborhood in a big city... More

Open at 5:pm. Get there early as they get extremely busy. Have a nice patio if you prefer outdoors. Servers get pretty busy, and food can be a bit slow coming out. Food was tasty, but not real Italian. Casual dining perhaps, but not fine dining.

I eat here every time I'm in town visiting relatives. The food is outstanding. My favorite is the chicken marsala but everything is delicious!

My husband took me here for my birthday. I requested it. I found this cute intimate restaurant about 10 years ago and it is by far my favorite restaurant in Issaquah. I always order the same thing as it is so delicious. Thank you to Jessica and her staff. Fantastic!!!

Your run-of-the-mill menu, only cooked worse. The red sauce on my partner's rigatoni was tasty. My chicken was tough - I really had to saw it - and the sauce was overly sweet. Prices were too high for what we got. You'd get better cooked Italian at a chain - and for less.

Thank Violet222
