The Restaurant

Nicole’s restaurant was established in 1986 and has been called “The Best Little Restaurant in Albany” by the Times Union. Together, husband and wife team, Margaret Carciobolo and James Gavin, strive to keep Nicole’s one of Albany’s finest restaurants.

Nicole’s offers a diversified menu of Southern and Northern Italian cuisine with many continental influences. Our team of chefs work daily to create new and exciting dishes.

In addition to Nicole’s romantic dining room with a 1930’s tin ceiling and metropolitan feel, Nicole’s also offers an outdoor deck with floral gardens and a private banquet room seating up to forty guests.
