Second visit to a real Derby Gem

Romantic dinner for two, pre delivered flowers and nothing too much trouble. If you want your food in a hurry go to McDonald's. Great food on both occasions and service always with a smile, I can't quite believe Nico's isn't pre booked weeks in advance.

Got put on a table stuck right in the corner not happy but nowhere else to sit. Took a while to get a drink by a girl who really didn't want to be there. We ordered our food , both the same starter and different main courses , only one starter arrived and she said "did you order 2" ?... More

If you want to eat tasty food in a warm and welcoming little restaurant you won't go far wrong with Nico's in Derby. Great food at a sensible price all served with a smile.

The waitress was run off her feet but offered extremely good service and was very friendly and pleasant. The food was good and, when we asked for oils, extras, etc... she was happy to help. This is a small, quirky place that was busy every time we visited. Very reasonably priced with nice wine. Would definitely recommend.

Can't thank Nico's staff enough....Just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with 28 friends and family at Nico's. We had exclusivity of restaurant for the evening, Dave created a personalised menu and the food and service was fantastic. We had a wonderful evening and it was enjoyed by all. Food here is amazing and staff are wonderful, nothing was too much... More

We went as a foursome for my daughters birthday, the pizzas we all had were excellent, the best I personally have ever had, the total for 4 including drinks came to less than £75 which I believe is excellent value for money and we will certainly go again soon.

This restaurant was a great find! Only small but exactly what we were looking for. Good food, excellent service and friendly staff... We booked a table but arrived early and as soon as we walked in we were made to feel very welcome. The restaurant was packed which is always a good sign. The food was varied enough and tasted...

One of Derby's 'hidden gems' a family run business that serves great value AND top quality food. The selection choice isn't massive, but I much prefer that then try to do too much and not do it to the high standards Nico's sets. Recommended by my step dad and would happily recommend to anyone. Great service (from one of their... More
