About Us

Nicholas’ Pizzeria is a family owned and operated restaurant in Needham Center. From our humble beginnings, we have had the dream to make and serve the best pizza, subs and sandwiches for the Needham and the surrounding Wellesley, Newton, Dover, Dedham, and Sherborn communities. We earned a number of distinctions along the way such as:

  • Selected as favorite pizza place in Needham by Needham Patch in 2011
  • Voted Number 1 Pizza & Subs for 2000, Number 1 Pizza for 2002 & 2003, Honorable Mention For Pizza for 2004 by Needham Times: People’s Choice Awards.
  • Awarded “Best of the Best” Subs in 1998, 1999, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and “Best of the Best” Pizza in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 by GKM & Market Surveys of America

But what makes us really proud is a different type of award. It’s the return of our loyal customer for another pizza or another sandwich or just to say hi. We are absolutely delighted every time we see you. Some of you come in daily. Others stop by from time to time. Every time we make a sandwich or a pizza or a dinner for you, we work hard to earn the reward of seeing you again.

Your kind words across the Internet in reviews and in discussions (behind our back) are the real “thank you” for job well done!

We are not a local chain nor a national chain with workers that care less about you or the pizza they serve you. Our team’s passion is to make the best lunch and dinner, to have the cleanest restaurant, and most of all to see you every day. That’s what makes us a local family restaurant – that’s the Nicholas’ Pizzeria difference.

Please stop by, grab a sandwich, get a pizza, and say hello to Nick who has put his life into making Nicholas’ Pizzeria the best kept secret (not any more) in Needham.
