Intimate Italian Wine Bar and Restaurant. Large outdoor garden for dining and enjoying the evening in Omaha's historic Old Market. Food is authentic, spicy and fantastic.

Awful service. 7:30 reservation. We request a seat outside and they don't have one available just yet so they seat us inside temporarily. Numerous outdoor tables empty out. New patrons are seated outside. Our waitress is elusive but we are able to ask her about seating a few times and she says the wait is longer, and hour now. 10 minutes later a waiter comes and tells us to grab whatever seat outside we wanted. There were many options. Food order taken about a half an hour later. Food delivered an hour and a half later. Server explanation; "sorry about that" after compliant; "that's a totally normal wait, its on our website I think". We watched every table turn both inside and out. Would not have minded all of this if the server and manager had simply recognized the issue. Instead the manager comes to us to say that there was no issue and that they moved us to " the back of the line" when we were reseated outside - with the same waitress - despite that being the original plan. We are disgruntled. He argues with us. His dimeanor is very unprofessional. He then offers to discount the bill and deducts an 8$ app for my friend. I did not take the offer. Payed my full bill and did not tip. First and only time I've not left a tip and I stand by it. We head out to another establishment after this (which had great service BTW) and after about 5 minutes the manager from Nicola's pops his head in the door (he followed us a block) to shout "thanks!" Obviously Nicola's has a management issue.

My husband and I made reservations to have dinner to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary on 7/7/15. We had never eaten here and were looking forward to what seemed would be a great meal. When we arrived to the restaurant, there was only one other person at a table. We were quickly seated and given menus; however, we then sat for 15-20 minutes without a single person ever coming to our table to even take our drink orders! There were 5-6 people working, or should I say "standing around," but we were simply ignored. Two gentlemen were throwing things on the floor at each other; two others were arguing over who was going to stay and who was going to go home if business remained slow for the evening; and the hostess walked passed our table three times without ever thinking of sending someone to serve us. Needless to say, we got up and walked out. As we were leaving, the employees watched us but never asked why we were leaving or said goodbye. We will definitely not be returning for fear of having the same experience. What a terrible way to start our anniversary evening!!! We ended up going to Mark's where we had wonderful service and a fabulous meal. Thank you for turning our night around, Mark's!

I recently went on a date here and the food was delicious! It's a cute place inside with a fun atmosphere. I had a glass of the Conundrum white wine and I ordered the Salmon Fettuccine.

The servers at Nicolas really know their stuff! they make drinks for all their tables and they also put together desserts while waiting on all all of us!! they do an excellent job so make sure and tip well and remember cash is the best way to do this. -Jack B.
