Windsors Best

Hands down the best in town. Beautiful hand made pasta's, deep rich sauces, great service and lovely ambiance. We started with the calamari, perfectly grilled on a bed of arugula with a balsamic lemon sauce. Loved the bitter/sweet contrast between the sauce and salad. Really good! Tonight we... read more

Their food is undeniably the best Italian food in Windsor. Homemade pasta or amazing meats. It's all made to impress!

Brought someone here from. Vancouver. All four ordered the veal chop with ravioli and braised short ribs beef. The veggies were the best I have had anywhere. Amazing variety, perfect char, flavour, wow. Huge chop with prosciutto on it with cheese topping. Ravioli was superb and short rib was mouth watering even now. Live music that was the perfect volume... More

We were taken to Nico by friends that have been going for years. It was lovely, everything about it. The service was great as was the food. We had the grilled calamari which I loved and the shrimp too. Two of us got the cippino which really if you are paying attention to portion size 3 people could have shared... More

We were planning on going to one of the more "popular" Italian restaurants in Windsor but a friend recommended Nico's to us. It was fantastic! Small and quaint. Excellent service from the whole staff. The food was superb. The guitar player was the final touch to a perfect night out. Thank you Nico!

Had dinner last night at this great restaurant. Waiter, Marco was spectacular. He was helpful and generous. From the wine to the seafood antipasto, main course and dessert, everything was wonderful. Our son just ate the leftover pasta bolognese and loved it. Thanks for such a nice dinner.
