De Nicoloa progressed through the youth ranks of Pallacanestro Vigodarzere (with stints at Virtus Padova and Petrarca Padova), a team coached by his father. Moving to Benetton Treviso in 2008, he won the under-19 national title with the side at the end of his first season.

The youngster was then loaned to lower league side Lago Maggiore the next season, returning in 2011. His second season with Treviso saw him collect 16.5 minutes of playing time per game, for 3.5 points and 1.1 assist. De Nicolao moved to fellow Serie A side Cimberio Varese in 2012, gradually increasing his minutes and statistical output over the next two seasons, he was nominated for the Serie A best player under 22 award for 2012-13, finishing third. After a season in the second division Serie A2 with Tezenis Verona, posting 10.3 points and a league-best 6.4 assists per game, De Nicolao joined Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia in 2015.
De Nicolao played with Italian representative sides in each age group from the Under-16's to the Under-18's through to the Under-20's. With the latter, he would earn a silver medal at the 2011 European Championship, posting 11 points and 9 boards in the final.
