Parking is difficult. Seating is tight. Service is good and quick. Some meals choices good - some poor. (My steak was the very dry) Very few gluten free options.

We frequently dine at this restaurant and are never disappointed. The food and service are always good. My husband loves the tomato soup with crab. The veal chop is excellent.

Four of us visited San Nicola to celebrate our granddaughters birthday. We reserved three weeks in advance and arrived just before our reservation time. Our first disappointment was being seated in a hallway next to the Service area. This lone table seemed to be in...More
