Great Food!

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... read 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.

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

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 :)
