Tried Nico Restaurante for the first time for dinner. True Italian menu with a little for everyone. The service was good and as was the food. It's a small restaurant (12+ tables or so) - found it annoying that I could hear every word of the conversations at adjacent tables, which certainly distracts from the romance of trying to have...

This has been one of my favorite restaurants since they first opened on Erie St. under another name many yrs ago. As always food is excellent with a nice variety of Classic Italian and specials. Prices are comparable for a high end restaurant. I had a dish which I would not order again, however it was very tastely. It did... More

Really was anxious to try the mussel appetizer but was told they sold out of it Come on management it was only 6 pm! We ended up with the grilled calamari which was very good. The homemade bread...

We visited on a week night and were given a quiet table near the window which was very nice. The food is a pricey and the choices are fairly limited. The food was tasty and I would recommend to someone who is travelling to Windsor looking for Italian food.

I was so pleased to have homemade Gnocchi like my nona did!!! Very Italian and very THRUE to real Italian cuisine . Atmosphere is very intimate, service is great. Prices are a bit high, but you go to Nico's for special occasions anyway :)

Windsor is very fortunate to have some of the best Italian restaurants west of Woodbridge clustered along Erie Street in what is locally known as Little Italy. Currently, the top three rated restaurants on TripAdvisor for Windsor are all located on three short blocks of Erie Street. Foodies that we are, the bride and I set out to sample the... More

Went to Nico's for my 14th anniversary tonight. John took our reservation and gave us a window seat. We have been here several times before but this was even better than we expected. We no longer order from the menu. We just ask for the chef to make us what ever he thinks. Tonight we had an amazing antipasta plate... More

Calamari was bitter and I had to force myself to finish it. The olive oil to dip bread in tasted like turpentine. 4 of the 5 of us had the seafood grill specialty. We all were disappointed. Over cooked, no flavor and the rissoto was terrible. Came out of there 75 lighter. We all agreed we should have gone to... More

Immediately on looking at the menu I had no idea what to order. It was between the two seafood specials and a four-hour braised lamp shank. It didn't help that our server kept bringing plates of amazing food by our table and showing to us to "help" us make a decision. Everything looked amazing! Decided to get the special in... More
