“We have been here for over two years, so we know what it takes to please every customer,” said General Manager Stephen Moshtagh. “You will come in hungry and leave with a smile on your face and a full stomach.”
Enjoy complimentary bread and seasoned oil while perusing their extensive menu. Appetizers abound like Fried Mozzarella, Stuffed Mushroom Caps (huge mushrooms are stuffed with fresh crab meat, spinach, green onion, and Italian seasoned breadcrumbs, then topped with a creamy Alfredo sauce, sprinkled with fresh crab meat and chopped Roma tomatoes), Nick’s Signature Fritto Mixto (fried calamari, shrimp and zucchini with a special sauce,) or Soup di Giorno. The Caesar or Greek salads could be considered a starter or a full dinner just like the Caprese Salad or Insalada Gorgonzola.
The pasta dishes and entrees include Spaghetti Carbonara, Fettuccine Alfredo, Linguine in red or white clam sauce, Shrimp al Diablo, Spaghetti a la Nick (spaghetti sautéed in olive oil, garlic mushrooms, sausage and meatballs in a marinara sauce), Veal Piccata or Scalopini, and Penne Arrabiata (penne pasta sauteed in a spicy marinara sauce with grilled chicken) are just a few of the choices.
The ricotta calzones are made to perfection, as are the grilled paninis. Popular paninis are the Italian Hero, Grilled Portabella Nella (grilled portabella mushrooms with roasted bell peppers, fresh mozzarella cheese and sundried tomato spread), Grilled Chicken Dominic (grilled chicken breast topped with Asiago cheese and chopped tomatoes on Ciabatta bread), and the Grilled Panini Tina (thinly sliced Parma Proscuito, fresh water mozzarella, sliced tomato with pesto mayonnaise.)
Crowning Nick’s menu are the scrumptious pizzas. The chefs at Nick’s hand toss each of the restaurant’s authentic Brooklyn-style pizzas. Choose a cheese only, Veggi, Super Veggi (cauliflower, onions, broccoli, green and black olives, mushroom, tomatoes, bell pepper, artichoke, and spinach), Quattro Formaggi (ricotta, parmesan, mozzarella, and provolone cheeses), Margarita, Greek, Pesto or Alfredo Chicken, Meat Lovers, or Supreme.
Save room for dessert and enjoy delicious scoops of ice cream or gelato, cannoli, or a slice of tiramisu (a luscious cake with layers of ladyfingers, dusted with cocoa powder, drizzled with chocolate sauce and top with a Maraschino cherry), or Italian cheesecake. Gelato is Italy's version of American ice cream, but is a bit richer and creamier. Your cravings will be satisfied. Lunch and dinner are served in a cozy atmosphere by servers who want to make your visit memorable.
