My son was dying to go to this restaurant since he lives nearby. So we took him for his birthday. First, appetizers start at $15, soup $9. My son's GF ordered chicken ceasar salad. The salad was $9 and $23 to add chicken. Costing $32 for a chicken ceasar salad,,,,my husband ordered the Halibut special, neglecting to ask the price. When the bill arrived, it was $48 for the Halibut. I think they are way overpriced and definitely not worth the visit.
Atmosphere was pleasant and service excellent. A little too much....
Really? Meunster Cheese on Chicken Parm? Really?
They definitely are not the nicest crew of employees around either. The place is cozy enough if you can get a table (which they make you feel as if they are doing you a favor), but the prices are rather high for what you get. Muenster Cheese?
My wife gets a fish special which is delicious. I have had good meals and bad here, but the rude service kills my opinion (and the meunster cheese).
Editorial Review by Marcella Veneziale – This Upper East Side standby serves locals elegant northern Italian comfort food like stracciatella, manicotti, and pollo scarpara.
Food is great but – No doubt about it the food is great, but they have to learn a thing or two about running a restaurant, my family recently stopped going there after 15 years or eating in the restaurant quite frequently, and the staff never even bought us a class of wine, or sent a free desert our way....Not to mention everyone in the place is 70 and above. Learn how to treat people
No Worries – Though I've lived in the neighborhood for 7 years, I had refrained from trying Nicola's because of its reputation as treating "regulars" great and everyone else not so great. Well, I worry no more. I went recently with my wife and two other couples, and we had one of the best meals we've ever had in the neighborhood (and there are quite a few good restaurants around). The food was first-rate and the service was excellent (despite the reputation). The place may not be young and hip, but it's certainly not old and stuffy; just an excellent restaurant for mature people.
