This place reminds me of the authentic restaurants in Italy. The service with Laura was perfection. The pace of the food and the evening was superb. The appetizer's were scrumptious. The calamari was soooo good and cooked to perfection. The gnoochi tre formaggi was over the top. Wild boar pasta was very good. This place will definitely see me again.... More

Hands down one of the best restaurants in Windsor's Little Italy. Nicos is our favourite place for all our special occasions. If you want authentic Italian, this is the place! Beautiful atmosphere, and very attentive staff. You won't be disappointed!

Nico is a small restaurant in the number of guests it can accommodate but is by far the best and largest warm hearted place on Erie Street for delicious food and excellent service.

My husband and I decided to have dinner here at Nico's. Hubby wasn't feeling very well. Service was quick. Food was very good. We had the grilled calamari which was excellent and then we had the blackened cod which was also delicious. Hubby didn't like the spaghetti that came with it. It was dark. I didn't mind it but I...

I have been there many times. Always excellent, food and service. Seasonal menu. We like the smaller, more intimate setting.

If you ever eaten cioppino you know that plenty of variations are available. Well the one at Nico's is just about as good as it gets to the original San Francisco cioppino. In addition the surprise factor is a great home made pasta at the bottom of the bowl. This fish medley is wonderful and worth a try. I caution... More

Walked in and were immediately greeted and seated. We did have a reservation. Surprisingly there was a guy singing with a guitar in front of us which was great. He was good. Food was excellent. No complaints. Service was quick,professional and friendly.
