A good old-fashioned Italian pasta palace! Nick's has been here since forever, and hopefully will be for more ever. None of your hoity-toity fancy foodie gourmet pretensions here, just classic spaghetti/ravioli/gnocci etc. with the 3 or so classic sauces. Try the salads! They give the lie to the myth that iceberg lettuce has to be boring. Service is good, wine... More

I've been patronizing Nick's since I was in my 20's, so long ago that I can't remember when. We ordered the spaghetti and meat sauce (still a deal at under $16 each). I can remember when that same dish sold for under $10. Not too much has changed other than the tables seem to be much closer together and parking... More

We were in the area and remembered this place from a long time ago so thought we'd give it a try. We came in on a Saturday night about 7:30pm. Seated immediately. Older decor throughout the place including the stained menus. We ordered the traditional spaghetti and a gnocchi dish. Spaghetti was the basic which was just OK. The gnocchi... More

Went here late yesterday with a group of friends. We have all dined here on and off since the 60's. Got here late and had only a short wait. The food is still great with healthy portions.

when you walk into Nicks you get a sense your back in the 1960's. The staff are super friendly, very warm and inviting. The food portions are huge and delicious. The tomato sauce is so fresh and tastes homemade. very affordable love this place

Nick's has been around for a very long time. When you enter the restaurant you know it's going to be good because the amazing, home-style Italian aromas hit you...Although the decor is not sleek and modern -- the attention to detail is where it should be which is in the FOOD, the glorious food. No one makes better meatballs in... More

We were looking for a bite to eat after a play we attended at the York theatre next door to Nick's. As we were deciding whether or not to take a chance, a couple were leaving the restaurant and told us it was the best spaghetti they had ever eaten. We stepped inside to an atmosphere that brought us back... More

I remember growing up in this restaurant. The gnocchi is to die for and cheesecake as well. The decor is the same as when I was young but this is exactly what makes this place special. The love is in their food. The tomato and onion salad to start👏

My friend raved about Nick's so we went one night with my son. Clearly, the opinions can be divided. They serve old-fashion style spaghetti on checkered tablecloths. The portions are huge and you are expected to take home what you don't finish. We had the spaghetti with meatballs and ribs, the steak with spaghetti and the chicken cacciatore. There wasn't...
