Order Wisely – The ambiance was romantic and cozy, the bread was warm, and the service was decent. Oh, and as previously noted, the vinigarette was tasty. We had to wait too long for the salad however, considering there were 4 tables of dining patrons total. Upon bringing the salad, the waitress offered to "return with fresh pepper if desired." The menu options sounded enticing, but I would go for the safest choice possible. The Pasta Fagioli soup was more like a salty, heavy meat sauce with pasta and a few beans thrown in. My date had an incredibly bland tomato cream based chicken pasta dish. My shrimp in a "sweet basil cream sauce" with hazelnuts was unreasonably heavy, could have doubled as dessert, and the large shrimp were unfortunately tough and overcooked. A cool glass of crisp wine may have cut through this dish a bit, but the choices by glass were very limited and pricey. Several of the other patrons must have known what to order and what to avoid as they seemed pleased with their meals. I will not be returning.

One Of The Best Restaurants In Albany – Nicole's Restaurant was a wonderful dining experience for us. I ordered the duck and it was very tender served in a delectible sauce served with rice and vegetables. Everything was seasoned just right and I'd recommend it to anyone, even the pickiest eater. My partner got the veal and although the veal was very delicious and served in a tasty sauce, the portion was smaller than we had expected. The mushrooms that were over the veal were very much tasteless, but a little salt fixed that problem. We both agreed that the salad dressing was the best vinegarette we've ever had. For dessert we shared a piece of key lime pie which was to die for. I normally don't like key lime pie, but this was delicious. The ambience is romantic and the service is friendly and knowledgable. I'll definitely return.
