This is one of my favorite restaurants in Old Market. I'm usually traveling for business and typically sit at the bar when I dine here. The staff are great and I've never had a bad meal.

I've been here twice and both times I really enjoyed my dish. Too bad they are not out west so we could enjoy them more.

Located in the heart of Omaha downtown / Uptown, Nicola's is a great Italian restaurant. Nothing fancy from the outside, and it's very "cozy" inside, but it's worth it! Great food, service, attention, and wine selection. There is a very large dinner menu to choose...More

Stephanie and Kevin made my birthday dinner exceptionally special. What an authentic staff and meal. We were so fortunate to get into this restaurant without reservations. Staff was over the top fantastic. Food was fab. Tiramisu melted in our mouth.

Nicola's is always a good choice when in Omaha. The have to try the lasagna. It's amazing. It's a small restaurant. In the winter when the patio isn't open I would recommend calling for a reservation.

Very, very picky when it comes to Italian cuisine and this restaurant nailed it. Didn't make reservation so we sat at the full service bar only to be served by a fabulous bar tender and enjoyed conversation with the entire staff. I had carbonara and...More

Thank goodness we had the day off, lunch was 2.5 hours. And all we ordered was basic lunch entrees. Perhaps it was because our waiter was the bartender, but there were not so many customers that he couldn't have done better. It is always discouraging...More

This is an excellent place to go for a couple. The seating area outside is first come first served, but on a nice evening is certainly the place to sit. We had a wine recommend and tried a couple before we settled on one that...More

Great Italian food and wine. Love the lasagna. Great appetizers too. Service is a little slow, but worth the wait. The best part is sitting out on the patio dining or just sharing a bottle of wine. Parking is street/meter parking. Parking garage 2-3 blocks...More

I am in town for business and I walked to this restaurant after reading the reviews. I had excellent service from Brendan and the recommendations that he chose for dinner where awesome. He recommended the Spaghetti Aglio & Olio and adding salmon to the dish....More

Tiny, rustic indoor seating, with seating in a big beautiful outdoor garden. A very special way to enjoy an evening with friends or family. The homemade desserts are the perfect way to end a delightful meal. We want you to enjoy your evening and enjoy freshly made entrees, so they do take a little more time to prepare when ordering. We also cater business lunches and dinner parties. The red sauce has a little kick to it and I love our lasagna!
