Nicola's Ristorante Review

Antique clock faces decorate the walls of this sophisticated Northern Italian restaurant in the Over-the-Rhine area north of Downtown. Such classic favorites as bruschetta, calamari, osso buco, and panna cotta (an Italian custard) are served. A formal dress code takes effect for dinner; no jeans or tennis shoes allowed. There's seasonal open-air dining in a courtyard with umbrella-shaded tables.

    Nicola's Ristorante Review

    We dined recently at Nicola's in Cincinnati. I understand this is considered one of the best restaurants in Cincy. Compared to Washington DC, the food was good, but way overpriced. The service was OK, nothing spectacular. The setting was pleasant. Upset to see the nearly extinct Chilean Sea Bass on the menu.
