Located just north of Downtown in Over the Rhine, the hip and historic Cincinatian neighborhood, Nicola’s is one of the outstanding Italian restaurants in town. It features delicious contemporary Northern Italian cuisine prepared in the finest way, and its signature dish must be the veal-stuffed cannelloni topped with Bolognese sauce. Desserts are sublime, and a 1200-bottle wine list is more than adequate for even the most choosy oenophiles. The location is homely yet sophisticated, with a modern setting that showcases exposed brickwork and vaulted ceilings. Its long-standing reputation for being warmly hospitable and accommodating as well as for its excellent menu selection make Nicola’s a favorite on the list of top restaurants in the city.
