For me, the main reason for visiting Rehoboth Beach is spending time at Nicola Pizza enjoying a mouth-watering Nic-o-boli. No summer is complete without Nic-o-bolis - a stromboli-like food made with ground beef, cheese, pizza sauce inside. There are no other words to describe one...other than DELICIOUS! My favorite beach food. I have been coming to Nicola Pizza annually since my teen years. Now retired, I am happy to say the Nic-o-boli remains the same and unchanged. Great food, great service! Take summer home with you - buy a case of Nic-o-bolis for the freezer! P.S. Another table ordered salads....HUGE!More

What’s not to love at this place! We come from Pennsylvania every year and this is our first meal and our last! I love the pizza, cheese fries and their huge salads! My son requests to go here multiple times during the week, it’s a...huge hit with our entire family! The wait staff is friendly and the atmosphere is great!More

Nicola's has great pizza, but my favorite is the "Nico-boli", their take on a Stromboli. It had ground beef or turkey, sauce, cheese and any pizza topping you'd like inside the wonderful folded pizza dough. It's not too big or too small...just right for dinner...after a day on the beach. The crushes are really good here too. Pizza and beer or a Nico-boli with a Crush. Either way, it's SOOO good!More

Went here based on Trip Advisor reviews and was somewhat underwhelmed. Pizza was ok, not great. Sauce was outstanding but the dough was too soft - i.e. not chewy, and kind of tasteless. Other toppings were good but still couldn’t overcome the dough. Service was...pretty good although the server could have told us that the salads were big enough to share (as a matter of fact they come with two bowls). It probably mentioned that in the menu, but still, would’ve been nice to know beforehand and not waste so much food. All in all, good experience but if you’re looking for great pizza not the place to go.More

We visit Nicola each year we vacation in Rehoboth Beach. Their pizza and salad make for a tasty and easy dinner or lunch. This year we ordered carry out for lunch. Pick up is at their location on Rehoboth Ave, not First St. There is...a window for pick up orders. The food was ready in about 15 minutes and the server was friendly.More

We were so happy we could make our beach trip to rehoboth this year once phase 2 reopening happened! Any trip to rehoboth would not be complete without Nicola and a Nicoboli! So much better than Grotto etc. Our server, Kristen B, was awesome with...any and all requests as well as being friendly and welcoming. Cant understand some of these negative reviews, this place is wonderful!! Thank you Nicola Pizza!!More

After a few days in the area, we stopped into this local pizza spot. The hostess was pleasant and we were greeted at our table fairly quickly. When we asked for a few minutes to look at the menu, apparently our waitress forgot about us....We saw the waitress talking with other restaurant staff and walking around, but she never came back for us. We tried getting the attention of a few other waitresses but we ended up having to approach the cashier to ask for a server. A different waitress quickly came over and apologized that the other waitress had to use the restroom. We ordered a pizza and salad with our drinks. The salad came out and was substantial and tasty for the price. Easily shareable for the 4 of us to divide between us. Our original waitress then brought the pizza and left a crumbled receipt. The pizza was truly just okay. We've had better many times. The crust tasted pre made and it was dripping in grease. Our waitress never came back to check on us. It was then that I realized the crumbled receipt was our check for us to bring to the register to pay. There was no check-in while eating. There was no thank you for coming. Very little basic waitress skills demonstrated. Disappointed.More

I don't like the sweet sauce--but I know people who LOVE it. There is nothing wrong with this place. The people are nice. But if you are used to a New York style of pizza sauce, you will be disappointed. Their Nicoboli is tasty and...well cooked, but, again, if you like a savory/spicy marinara to dip it in, you won't like it. On the other hand, if you are someone who likes sweet sauce, and I mean sugar sweet, then you will probably love it. I can't make a fair judgement on this restaurant because there are different styles of marinara sauce, and people usually like the one we're raised on. I hear that the owners are community minded and do a lot for the area, and that means something. It's worth it to go and try it at least once.More
