Nicola's Ristorante is a renowned fine dining establishment situated just north of Downtown in Cincinnati's historic Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. With over two decades of operation, it has become a staple of the city's culinary scene. Former owners Nicola and Maureen Pietoso took pride in their restaurant's contemporary Italian menu, extensive wine selection, and unique dining spaces. Above all, they cherished their reputation for warmly hospitable and accommodating service. Today, Chef Cristian Pietoso, son of Nicola and Maureen, carries on the family legacy as owner of Nicola's, offering authentic and fresh Italian cuisine to Cincinnati's discerning diners.
