Uncle Nicky might not put on his fancy pants very often anymore, but he can still whip up some fresh pasta and make a mean cocktail!

Adventurous eaters and old souls make waves for Uncle Nicky’s Olive Oil Cured Sardines, while locavores seek out his 44 Farms Carpaccio and Creste di Gallo with housemade Alfredo Cream Sauce.

Light snacks like Crispy Piadinas pair well with Nicky’s Negronis, and afternoon sippers can’t get enough of his Aperol Spritz. For a one-of-a-kind citrus experience, grab a Garibaldi — Uncle Nicky’s Fluffy OJ mixed with Frozen Campari!

Big eater? Go for the whole shebang with Nicky’s Mambo Italiano, featuring Spicy Capicola, Genoa Salami, Mortadella, Provolone, Uncle Nicky’s Italian Dressing, and a handful of veggies for good measure!
