This is our favorite place for a special night out. The food is wonderful, as is the service. I find their prices to be in line with the excellent quality.

Love Nicola"s! Have eaten here many times. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is soothing, peaceful. Have specials every night and if you have a dietary restriction, they will be able to accomodate within reason.

So, hotel highly recommended. Very glad I went but I though a little expensive. I had a half size portion shalems favorite, Caesar salad and a beer, $30. All very good. Staff very polite and great service. I will go back if back in town.
