Gentle atmo, solid Italian menu, good wine list, charming and knowledgeable servers. We've dined here a half dozen times over as many years, and the place never disappoints. It's worth the hassle of finding a (legal) parking space and weaving among hot dog and souvenir emporia to spend an evening here.

Compliments to Nicoletta's on a terrific meal on Saturday night of HOF induction weekend. Conveniently located on Main Street in Cooperstown, it is a quiet respite from the hubbub of the street. We felt fortunate to receive a reservation, which we made about 3 weeks before the weekend. The food was excellent and the choice of wine was first-rate.

We heard it was wonderful food. I felt a bit underdressed in shorts & shirt, but they were welcoming and our meal WAS wonderful. So wonderful even my kids want to know if we have a branch in Wisconsin. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Meal was filling and delicious. Highly recommend.

We had a family group of twenty people ages 1 to 92 at Nicoletta's during a fairly busy dinner hour at the end of July 2014. I won't write a long review, but I must say that this was really a great choice. We had two tables of ten. The food was just wonderful - one of the best Italian... More

Cooperstown is not a gourmet destination but if you want a local spot with abundant well prepared home style Italian food this is the spot for you. Here red means red. Attentive staff is courteous and professional. And maybe you will get to rub shoulders with baseball stars,

We came here during our Dreams Park week. We wanted to go somewhere descent. Since we didn't have any kids we decided to splurge a bit. Since the reviews were good on TA we decided to give it chance. Nicolletta's is located on the main drag in Cooperstown. It's a store front restaurant and it's much bigger inside than you... More

This was a store front restaurant but you forgot it was as the evening progressed. Hanging more items on the wall might act as a buffer to keep the noise down.The calamari was good and my husband and I shared that dish. I had veal parmesan and it was overcooked and tough. The pasta was al dente but not enough... More

This is a very nice place. Service was good, nice atmosphere and, most importantly, the food is good. My husband loved the pasta and peppers. The ricotta ravioli served over a slice of fried eggplant was outstanding. I do not care that much for eggplant; it often tastes watery to me. I ordered this dish for the ravioli, but the... More
