Nicolino restaurant, established in 1991 has been feeding local patrons for years in Issaquah. In 1998, the restaurant changed hands when Jessica Robertello and Derek Schaubroeck purchased the business. While you'll see Robertello around Nicolino daily, you'll likely have to go to Easy Joe's American Pub in Pioneer Square to catch a glimpse of Schaubroeck at work.
Chef Vic Taylor, hailing from Adelaide Australia joined Nicolino six years ago. He brought with him, not only his experience in fine Italian cooking, but his influence on the importance of using local purveyors. Today, this includes DaPino cured meats and sausage, Gemini Fish & Seafood Market, Benessare Olive Oils, Café Darrte Coffee and Snoqualmie Gourmet Ice Cream.
