BRIO (meaning "lively" or "full of life") is a "polished casual" restaurant serving authentic, northern Italian cuisine. Just a short drive away from Paramount Theater, Farmingdale College and Republic Airport. The subtitle, "Tuscan Grille" is descriptive for a menu that features oven-roasted steaks, chops, and seafood; similar to what one would find in an authentic ristorante in Tuscany. BRIO's philosophy of "to eat well, is to live well" is why they only use the finest and freshest ingredients. BRIO brings the pleasure of a Tuscan country villa to the American city.

"We went to brio with friends on a Saturday night with a reservation. We were told they were running 15 minutes late. The entry was very crowded and they were telling that to everybody but as we spoke to people waiting it was a longer wait. Obviously the restaurant overbooks. We were finally seated within an hour of our reservation and it was now 9:15. The food is ok and prices are reasonable but it's not worth the wait. They did take our drinks and appetizer off the bill so that was a nice touch. Wouldn't come back on a Saturday night."

After developing a loyal, steady following first in Merrick, then in Long Beach, Nick's was forced to close after Hurricane Sandy. We have now brought our food and talents to the lovely village of Mineola. Nick's Tuscan Grill is an intimate setting, with the focus on exceptional food and service. Portions are hearty and the prices are reasonable. We guarantee you will not leave here unsatisfied OR hungry!

"My husband and I just returned from a trip to Italy so when we saw so many fresh pasta entrees at nicks we were excited to try them. They didn't disappoint. The black squid linguine with seafood was delicious. Our friends loved their entrees - eggplant parmigiana and veal paillard as well. From the salad to our delicious tartufo, we felt a bit of italy in mineola! The portions were ample and the prices reasonable. We've already made another reservation with other friends. I would highly recommend coming here."
