Nicola`s Italian Kitchen is an authentic Italian restaurant and real-life American Dream. Nicola and Tina De Fazio were both born in Italy where they lived until they immigrated to the United States in the 1960s. Both from traditional Italian homes, they met, fell in love, married, and decided to share their traditions of hospitality and family gatherings with their friends. Of course, when their family gets together there are many dishes made with rich sauces, fresh ingredients, and an atmosphere of warmth and welcomeness. The original Italian Kitchen was founded on this principal in New Britain, CT in 1965 and eventually was reborn as Nicola`s Italian Kitchen in Englewood FL in 1990. The traditions haven`t changed at Nicola`s where the food is made from scratch just the way it was at the family gatherings in our home so many years ago. We invite you to share in our tradition and we welcome you to Nicola`s. From our family to yours, benvenuto!
