The atmosphere is great, the service is very high but the food was surprisingly average. Alfredo noodles were a bit over cooked, as was the calamari. Not enough to send back, not enough to return.

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.
