Best Sports Bar, 2014:
At Nicola Pizza on the Avenue, you’ll find the same great food served at the original Nicola’s on First Street, but with a cozy bar and plenty of TVs.
The Nic-o-Boli from Nicola Pizza is “one of the greatest culinary treats we have in Delaware,” says critic Ciro Poppiti. People line up around the block for the sensational stromboli that blends ground beef, Nicola’s fat-free pizza sauce and cheeses inside fat-free dough. It’s so famous, it’s shipped anywhere in the country. The standard Boli is good as is, though some diners add fresh ingredients such as pepperoni, mushrooms, sausage, sweet peppers, onions or anchovies. There’s even a vegetarian version.
We enjoyed the cozy booths and overhead model train at the original First Street location
of Nicola Pizza. We love the big, new restaurant on the avenue.
