I ordered the seared scallops with a creamy risotto, balsamic salad and a frosty Stella. This is a family run restaurant and has been around for 25 years. Very friendly service. I came in at 5pm on a Saturday and was the only customer. They do a lot of take out. Nice quaint cafe ambiance. I will return to try... More

I'm a foodie and I truly LOVE this little gem of a place! It's a small family run Italian restaurant located in a small strip mall but the food here is absolutely delicious and they serve the best Chicken Piccata I have ever had anywhere!!! It's apparent they use very high quality ingredients and everything is prepared fresh to order.... More

When we first moved to San Pedro we lunched here several times, and to be fair, the meatball sandwich special (a small one with a soda included for $8.50 if I remember correctly) was quite good, but after a very indifferent small pizza lunch special we decided to move on. Not a complete write-off, though: maybe the dinners and large... More

Sit down or take out, it's all good. Love the hot meatball and cheese sandwich. Miss the veal entrees, but the chicken parmagiana is good.

Some of the best Italian food on the hill. Friendly service, great fresh taste, and far more than a pizza place!

Enjoyed eating here. They have a great range of pizzas but this evening we opted for lasagne and another pasta dish. Both were really good. The dessert was also excellent (cannoli); food was made to order and fresh. Service was very good; waitress friendly and helpful.

The hubster and I have been there several times but moved 3 years ago. We've always made it a point to eat there whenever we're in town. The decor have changed and it looks very nice and comfortable. The food is always delicious and it's the best home cooked meals we've ever tasted. The cioppino, chicken Marsala, Alfredo fettuccini w/shrimp... More

Yes, all in cap because I am yelling. Being an east coast transplant I miss a properly made pizza. Sorry California a conveyor belt does not make a good pie. But this place in just not about pizza they also have handmade ravioli, eggplant and many other home style Italian dishes. And let’s not forget the cannoli for desert Should... More

Everyone needs a go-to restaurant...that one place close to home that you can go-to when the day has been long, you have not had time to plan dinner, you need some comfort food, and you know the food will be consistently wonderful. Yesterday was such a day and Niccolo's has become our go-to restaurant! Since moving to San Pedro a... More
