Visit Nica Trattoria for an intimate and special dining experience!

Nica Trattoria is open Monday through Saturday and accepts reservations.
The entire restaurant can also be reserved for private parties
of approximately 20-30 guests.

Nica Trattoria ... a tiny powerhouse of authentic Italian cuisine that has long-time customers quipping, "Don't go here, because I want it all to myself…" Previously Giorgio's Trattoria, Nica Trattoria owners Giuseppe Nicolosi and Dominique "Nica" Russo teamed up with Giorgio to offer an expanded menu of the carefully crafted, made-to-order food that has kept fans coming back for the past 16 years.

Aside from a robust menu of authentic Italian dishes designed to offer the best of Italy, both North and South, Nica Trattoria offers 15 to 20 daily specials. Sworn-by specials include the homemade gnocchi and sumptuous lamb chops. Menu items like filet mignon in an "addictive" black pepper sauce and braised lamb shank are not to be missed.

Reservations are strongly suggested, as Nica's phenomenal food, limited seating, and loyal fans make for a Friday night table fight. And while you must come armed with a large appetite and time to enjoy the cooked-to-order cuisine, both the food and colorful cast of characters will make it an experience you won't soon forget!
