poor service – i live maybe 5min away from cafe nicholas, but delivery usually takes 60-90min, plus it's usually cold by the time it gets here. worst off, if you try to make any additions or subtractions from an order, they'll never get it right, especially if you try to order it online. i've been trying to get a hold of a manager for a month because i got the wrong order for the 15th time and i want a free sub(since i spent $11 for a sub that came with nothing but dry meat, i'm not even asking for a refund), and i keep getting ignored. Try Sweet Tomatoes, because Bill's in newton center is just as bad, if not worse.
Comfortable suburban eatery popular with familes balances satisfying homemade pizza with a far-reaching Italian-American menu. – The Scene
Suburban families looking for an alternative to ubiquitous pizza chains fill Cafe Nicholas's twin locations to nibble on custom pies and huge pasta dishes. Though many patrons opt for takeout and delivery service, strong crowds pack the informal dining room (color provided by framed photographs of Boston's greatest athletes and sports moments), especially on the weekends. Young servers do an admirable job of keeping water glasses and breadbaskets filled.
The cafe's pizza, its calling card, features thin-crust dough that comes from a family recipe (more Greek than Italian) and a choice of homemade sauces (either basic marinara or creamy Alfredo). Choose from any number of toppings--everything from barbecued chicken to baby shrimp--or a specialty pie like the Fra Diavolo (a favorite of spice lovers, it features sausage, onions, and jalapenos). The extensive appetizer list includes offbeat treats like mesquite chicken quesadilla rolls, while salads are large and fresh.
Excellent Comfort Food--Great Value !!! – This hidden jewel located in Newton Centre is a must visit for families and casual diners alike. Very friendly staff caters to the average joe. Pizza is outstanding plenty of room in the rear (Garden City Room). Great for intimate gatherings and other parties. Try the Specialty pizzas or a sandwich carrying the Boars Head Meat label !!
Bad pizza & bad service = Cafe Nicholas – Overpriced rubbish disguised as pizza. Nothing tasted fresh, the sauce was probably Ragu, the order was wrong, and they didn't accept my coupon. Just thinking about their food makes my stomach feel weak. The crust was really bad, too...too thick and chewy. Their breadsticks were a poor excuse for breadsticks...it was simply their pizza crust without sauce and cheese, cut up into "sticks". They should be embarrassed.
