I went to Nicolinis for the first time last Friday. My friend had booked a table for 4 or 5 but there ended up being 7 of us and the staff were very accommodating and squeezed us all in comfortably. The food came quick and was delicious and affordable. We celebrated 2 birthdays there so my friend had bought a cake along, the staff were great when it came to splitting it up and packaging it for the ride home.
Super friendly staff make visiting this trattoria a real delight of being in the capital. There's a fantastic garden-bar style room out the back which is perfect for a large group. The food is excellent and after dinner you can enjoy a chilled limoncello.
This is my favourite restaurant. The food is mouth watering, authentic and the space is beautiful, warm and rustic. The wine selection is wonderful too, you'll definitely be able to have a glass to match what you're eating. Highly recommend, best Italian in the city.
