Love Nico's! A little more modern than some other Erie Street spots and some great twists on traditional dishes. Really good wine list as well. Food is fresh, interesting and extremely tasty.

A wonderful menu to choose from! All fresh items and small and quaint! Be sure to make reservations if it is on a weekend! It seats a small amount of people, which is nice if you like a smaller more quaint place to eat. Sometimes they have live music as well, which is a nice touch :) Good for families,... More

This little quaint bistro is as close as you can come to having an old Italian grandmother cooking for you. Chef Nick was raised with immigrant Italians and fresh garden foods and it shows in his creations. Great authentic Italian food. Beautifully presented and filled with flavour.

We eat here on special occasions and when ever possible. The food is always better than you can imagine and the specials never disappoint! Would love to recommend a favourite but the menu is always introducing us to new experiences. The freshest ingredients and served by the best. I cannot think of a better atmosphere to enjoy authentic Italian food... More

We had 8 family members to celebrate my Mom's birthday. We had a reservation - a must on a Saturday night here. I cannot say enough about the menu selections, the service and the quality of the food. Everything was served on time, nice and hot, and all the food was served together. All the dishes were excellent. The mussels... More

Great night at Nico. Gnocchi is the best on Erie street. Nick and Marco treated us like family. Great service, great food. Fresh fish, steak, great atmosphere. Prices are fair and comparative to all high class restaurants in Erie.
