I had Minestrone soup, Calamari and Veal Picata. I found all to be very bland in taste which was very different than the last time I visited. This was not an inexpensive restaurant and I expected better.

I was hoping for better. Extensive, attractive menu but delivery falls short. How can you undercook the Pork Osso Bucco? Etna Rosso wine from My. Etna saved the night. Lots of better Italian choices around Dallas.

Welcome to Nicola's Ristorante Italiano, the award-winning restaurant in Plano's The Shops at Legacy. You will love our authentic, hand-crafted Italian cuisine. We use centuries old recipes handed down in the old country for generations. All pasta is hand-made on site, sauces are created from scratch, we bake our own bread in our wood-burning oven and groceries are delivered twice a day to insure market-fresh ingredients. The only freezer we have in the kitchen is for gelato! Relax in the whimsical, sophisticated design which includes an active bar and adjoining lounge, private, high-backed booths, curtained nooks for romantic dinners and seating on the mezzanine overlooking all the action below. Our popular patio areas out front and to the side are delightful for happy hour, lunch or dinner dining, or simply the best people watching in town.
