I went to Nicola's, by chance, right after the chef won an award at the Cincinnati Food & Wine Classic. We had the gnocchi because apparently that's his best item. It was good (four cheeses and truffle oil, you can't really go wrong), nothing really insane though. We had the red drum (fish) that was not that great. None of the salads have much in the way of greens--I had the Goat cheese salad, and it was very heavy on the goat cheese. The service is good.

The Monday special is something that me and my other 20-something friends do once every couple months, as the prices are otherwise in the "special occasion" range. The staff really stands out as being extremely friendly and take great concern to making sure every detail is accounted for during your meal!

Pretty tasty but also a bit pricey. I had the gnocchi and it was solid. Not my favorite Italian in the city but it's won tons of awards and is always busy! Splurge a bit and give it a go.
