Just went to the new location and wow! just a few minutes from our house and it was packed. Waited for about 30 minute but well worth the wait. The hostess was very friendly and accomodating.
My wife ordered the chicken Picatta and I ordered the Lasagna with a side of sausage. The meal was fantastic and way too much to finish. The homemade bread was to die for. All the hype we had heard in our neighbor hood was right on. Can't wait to go again and try the pizza. The couple next to us couldn't stop bragging about how great it was.

watch out for the new location. ordered take outs twice and both times missing items. staff are rude about it. Manager even worse. they think they are fantastic now because they are busy....... but watch out this success won't last with that attitude.

The new owners are making a mess out of this restaurant. They have made the sauces bitter. The Pizzas oily---they are going to kill this restaurant. Their prices are out of the ballpark. Bring back Sam and his recipes.

Pros: excellent servers

Cons: poor new management

My husband and I dines last night. The service was friendly and fast. The restaurant is worn-out, old with dirty dusty plastic flowers decorating the interior. The food, I ordered baked rigatoni, dry, sauce is way too sweet and the ricotta was only on the top, no mozzarella cheese throughout. The salad the was served pr-meal was torn lettuce with 1 tomato wedge and drenched in salad dressing - no croutons, or color! My husband had the anniversary spaghetti and meatballs - same sweet sauce, he couldn't;t even finish it, the sauce was so bad. We used to frequent often, and last night is definitely the last. The rigatoni was served in a gratin dish and is $14 - there are many other Italian restaurants with nice ambiance and food quality that don't charge $14, and that's where we will be dining from now on - goodbye Nicolosis!

A friend of mine told me about Nicolosi's a while back and my wife and I finally tried it out. We found the food to be excellent. The salad dressing, bread and of course the entrees were all awesome. Portions are huge. You can definitely share with someone or get your own and have some left over for lunch the next day.

Nicolosi's is an amazing restaurant. It is on the hidden side, but once you get there it is worth it. Homemade fresh bread served at your table, with quality Italian food. If you are looking for some great Italian food, check this place out.

This is a second generation, family owned restaurant. The food is wonderful, home made bread, etc. I have never had anything that wasn't excellent! It is a warm and friendly place.

My husband and I went here with friends for dinner one night. It was an okay place for Italian food. The food was your basic italian, but it was good. Would recommand this place for a family, doesn't really have a romantic vibe.

My family and I have been going to Nicolosi's for probably about 28+ years and we have never found another pizza that is quite like what they offer. We don't even need menus any more once we arrive. Its simply, "We'll take one large antipasto salad and one large pepporoni and mushroom pizza." And then mom always adds, "And lots of bread too!"

I've had friends try their pasta as well and loved it. The flavor is delicious, the staff are really nice, its a nice, cozy atmosphere and overall, very family oriented.

Try it out, you won't regret it!

Nicolosis has been around for ages, formerly located on El Cajon Blvd., before the I-15 displaced it! A delicious Italian menu, from the basics to a few more intricate dishes, they always shine! Each meal we have ever eaten there has been fantastic, from Torpedos to pasta, pizza to salads. Their original Italian dressing is delicious and available in take-home bottles. Excellent bread and a complimentary relish dish with each meal. Fun for a casual date, also very family friendly. Moderate prices.
