The atmosphere is warm and welcoming as soon as you enter the door. Both food smells, yummy, and lots of happy faces says it all. The food is fantastic and all cooked after you order. No sauce out of a storage container. All made from scratch. So good!

We felt like an Italian hit and we got a great big whack of it at Nicolini’s. We ordered the spaghetti and ravioli to share: both huge portions, but delicious and both hit the spot perfectly. I was eyeing off dessert but couldn’t possibly fit it in! The wine list was extensive and the service fantastic. Also has a great ambience and some amazing aromas coming out of the kitchen!

For service, food and ambience, Nicolini's is superb.
Friendly and attentive service. An acceptable beer and wine selection. Great menu choices at reasonable prices. And a place that, while busy, is easy to have a conversation in.
Italian and New Zealand wines and beers.
My ham tortellini was the best I have ever had - the pasta cooked to perfection. A generous amount of ham that flavoured the whole dish, and a delicious sauce.
With this first experience, I would like to go back and try so many other items on the menu.

This is a cute Italian restaurant with candles on the tables. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the food. The food is delicious and tasty. The garlic bread is crispy and full of flavour. Good price and good portion sizes.
