A Little Insight

Nicole’s Restaurant was established in 1986 and has been called the best little restaurant in Albany by the Times Union.

Nicole’s is a family-owned business offering a diverse menu of upscale Italian cuisine with many continental and modern American influences. Our team of chefs work daily to create new and exciting dishes, such as our constantly-changing Chef’s Specials.

In addition to Nicole’s intimate dining room with a 1930’s tin ceiling, romantic lighting, and leather banquettes for comfortable seating. Nicole’s also offers a quiet, secluded back deck for outdoor dining in the summer months.

Nicole’s is available for private dining, with any of the restaurant’s rooms or spaces available for reservation, seating up to sixty guests for your next event. We are well-known for hosting small wedding receptions, wedding rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, baby showers, birthday parties, corporate or business dinner meetings, anniversary celebrations, political or nonprofit fundraisers, graduation dinners or parties, funerals, celebrations of life, memorials, and more.
