We make a point of visiting this restaurant every summer during our stay at our northern residence. Wait staff are wonderful, food is exceptional, service is meticulous. You could not ask for better in this locale. I do not know if they offer WiFi but why would one want to spoil the dining experience and ambiance of this fine establishment?

We recently had dinner while visiting. Although it was off season and during the week, the restaurant was full. We enjoyed everything - clams and linguini, chicken alfredo and especially the chicken parm!

Nicoletta"s is one of many places to eat in downtown Cooperstown, but if you want a great Italian meal it is the only place to go. Their veal parmigiana is delicious with a generous portion of veal (real veal-crispy) and pasta ( it could use a little more "sauce") . The Sausage Italiano is also a culinary delight-great sausage with... More

The second time we've dined at this restaurant. Food and service were excellent. My wife had chicken Marsala which she thoroughly enjoyed. I had an entree special which was eggplant parmigiana with pasta and sweet sausage. We both had Manhattan clam chowder which was very good but could have been a little warmer. Highly recommend and would definitely fine there... More

It was a bit awkward at the outset as we were the first guests and subsequently asked for different seats. The service was also annoyingly slow at the beginning but our food arrived in proper order without crowding the previous course. To be fair we were early for dinner as we had to leave town but sought a great dinner... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Nicoletta's. Colleen, our server was very pleasant and most helpful with her suggestions. I had a special eggplant parm with their homemade mild sausage... seasoning and portion were perfect. My husband thought his linguine with clams in the shells was delicious. We are every bite and definitely hope to return.

This is a lovely, little Italian restaurant across the street from the Baseball Hall of Fame. Really nice atmosphere, and the food was delicious. So convenient right downtown Cooperstown, but walking distance from our INN at Cooperstown. Recommended by them.
