Portions too large! The core of the dish is good but it is drowned in stuff. Had the veal chop- chop itself tasty and tender but then lost in the rapini/ cheese & prosciutto topping- accompanied by cheese ravioli in a tomato/ eggplant sauce & sautéed beans in a tomato sauce- way too much going on! Osso bucco also tasty... More

I have enjoyed each meal that I have ever had at Nico Ristorante. I visited most recently with my wife and son on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was booked solid, as is usual, so reservations are recommended. It is one of the more intimate settings on Erie Street. We chose the bruschetta as an appetizer and really enjoyed the... More

This restaurant is perfect for Italian lovers. The menu is very good, serving sizes are great. A bit pricey but worth every penny for the food and atmosphere. Makes a great date night restaurant.

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. If you don't see what your craving on the menu, chances are they can create the dish in the kitchen just for you and just the way... More

Always excellent food and service. A perfect size for a cozy atmosphere. It reminds of the small restaurants back in Italy. Try the Cioppino it is awesome!

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...
