We had been to Florence, Italy a few years ago. We ate at a little cafe and this place brought back that feeling. The service here was warm and friendly. The food was delicious. My husband had the eggplant parmaggiana special. Really delicious. I had the lobster ravioli. Excellent, but I did not taste the lobster. We returned a few... More

The service here is excellent (ask for Colleen). The food (for the price) was very good. Try the seafood picatta.

My son and I were wiped out but still had time to enjoy a very good meal here. Servers all very warm and nice atmosphere right on main street.

Nicoletta's seems to have someone's Sicilian nonna back in the kitchen. They don't try to cover Italian cuisine from Milan to Palermo. The emphasis is on Southern Italian - wonderful marinara, tasty homemade pasta and sausage. This is comfort food at its Italian best.

We eat as locals about once a month. Food is very good and the service is great. The wine pours are exceptional and most often the owner will come around with a large bottle of wine and give you a hit! Fun place, best to make reservations because they are busy. Pricing is mid range, not a place to take... More

Went to Nicoletta's for dessert. We found the waiters as accommodating as possible given we had to wait a bit to be seated but had the tiramisu, cheesecake and chocolate cake. Espresso was very good as well as the blueberry port. From the looks of it, the dinners are to be experienced as well.

White tablecloth restaurant just a stones throw from the HoF exceeded my expectations. Not terribly busy on Fri night but it was off season. Attentive service, decent wine, and good Italian cuisine was welcome in what's probably one of the top end restaurants in town. Recommended!

The service was good but the food is average and a bit pricey, considering the quality. The website advertised a children's menu but there wasn't one provided at the table, though chicken fingers and pasta were offered.
