Reviews of Nicolino's

review_stars 05/22/2015 - Diane
I feel Nicolino's has come a long way. There food is excellent from there appetizers to just a simple pizza. There dinners are always done right and taste phenomenal. As for the service it is not a big chain restaurant with several cooks. Its mainly run by one lady who is the owner. If you want fast food go to Ruby Tuesday's and get there chain food, if you want homemade family cuisine food, then go to NICOLINO'S. Everyone is always very friendly and nice. So KUDO'S to you Antonella keep up the GREAT JOB!!!!!!!!!!!

As a customer of over 30 years, I highly recommend Nicolino's. The food is excellent and there is plenty of it. The service is friendly and eager to serve. The prices are very reasonable. Antonella, the Chef is creative and her cooking reminds me of the recipes that came out of the kitchen 30 years ago cooked by her father. Delish!!

I ordered some boneless chicken breast over Angel Hair in a white wine sauce w/tomatoes & mozzarella - first of all absolutely NO FLAVOR - the PASTA WAS OVERCOOKED - pasta had no flavor!!! They should put SALT in the water when cooking the pasta - it should also be ALDENTE' ! My husband got the HADDOCK AGAIN NO FLAVOR - got BROCCOLI THAT wasn't fully steamed - again no flavor - mashed potato's - his dinner was COLD!! Overall nice AMBIANCE - but will not go back - FOOD WAS TERRIBLE!! We need something good in AMSTERDAM!!!!!

Love, love, love it here! Always amazing food! While other restaurants are declining Nicolino's gives you authentic, hand made, food you can't get anywhere else. Always come to this restaurant when out in Amsterdam!

Chria must be representing competing restaurants. The moment he said the portions were small, I knew he was never at Nicolino. If any thing, the portions are enough for at least 2 maybe more. If you going to lie, at least get your facts straight

I was there once. It was all it took. I got small portions. The taste was horrifying. These positive reviews are probably from people working there or the owner herself. The waitress was a total dolt. I waited FOREVER for my food which was abhorringly disappointing. The price was outrageous. And yes, TGI does do Italian better then Douche Nichlino's.

Highly recommend. 1st time visit and will definitely visit again when we are in the area. Best Italian food I have had for the price in years. Service was good, but we were there on a slow night. Great find!

We've been there before and it's always a highlight when we are in the area - gonna be in the area tomorrow for a couple of days and Nicolino's is definitely a destination for us!!<br /> I agree w/last reviewer - folks if your description of fine dining is most of the chain restaurants, i.e. Red L, Apple..., etc., go elsewhere!

To those complaining about service time, this isn't a big chain restaurant with six cooks. It is virtually run by one lady (the owner) and a couple of servers. And to the dumbass complaining about the hard crusty bread, it's supposed to be like that. It's ITALIAN bread, in an ITALIAN restaurant, retard. People like this probably grew up on processed crap they got from food stamps and wouldn't know good quality food if it punched them in the face.<br /> <br /> My wife and I have been there several times. Ans, yes, it does take some time. But in our experience it was well worth the wait.. The food is authentic Italian made from scratch, not the frozen crap many chain restaurants use. And it was of the highest quality. Those seeking a real quality Italian food experience we highly recommend Nicolino's. Idiots thinking places like TGI Friday's make good Italian probably would not appreciate this fine establishment. They'd be better off doing some "fine dining" at KFC or some other big chain. Nicolino's is truly a diamond in the ruff.

went there on 'parm night' wed. we waited for almost 1 1/2 hours for our food. the place only had a few other couples so they we not busy. the chicken itself was pretty good..but the sauce tasted sour..the pasta was horrible. the bread they give you was hard and crusty. the best part of the meal was the small salad that comes with the meal..and they even ran out of soup..would not recommend..and will not be going back. we had to chase down the waiter and waitress more then once for refills..the food..lemon..the check..we had a lot of left overs..but didnt even want a box!!
