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.

Not sure why Nicoletta's is not #1. This place is a gem. Service and food top notch. I kid you not this is a great find and you will not be disappointed. The bread for the table is a garlic type of warm bread. Chicken parm dinner is a hit. Sorry had no room for dessert:

My wife and I had dinner here on a Saturday night during the "off season". The restaurant wasn't packed for a Saturday night but it should have been. The food was delicious and service excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a great meal and atmosphere and do not want to fight the crowds found... More

Amazing village find! Quiet setting, excellent seafood, great wine selection. We are certain all of the meal selections are very good. The 12-year old in our group enjoyed Nicoletta's too. We consider this the best restaurant in Cooperstown!

Just arrived in Cooperstown and had our first family meal here. My husband had the steak and pronounced it outstanding. Two others had the salmon over pasta and loved it. Remaining diners had the shrimp and scallops over pasta -- delicious. For dessert, we shared the chocolate chip cannoli -- it was okay; the cheesecake and the triple fudge cake... More

Had an early dinner here and the food and service were both good. Italian sausage and peppers over spaghetti was nicely done. A live jazz trio played but not too loudly. Prices are excellent especially for the wine.
