Italian food as it should be

I came to Derby last night with my son to see a band. We thought we'd go to eat before the show and we headed off in search of a curry house or similar. Fortunately - we came across Nico's and I can't resist Italian food. Great little restaurant, relaxed atmosphere and a warm welcome from the... read more

Twenty choir members and families went to Nico's for an evening meal. We were looked after extremely well by two cheerful young members of staff. All courses were served almost at the same time and the food was enjoyed by all. The venue is quite ordinary, but the feel of the place is warm and welcoming. I expect we shall... More

We have been to Nicos for dinner several times and always had a fabulous meal. On every occasion we have received a warm and friendly welcome in this family owned restaurant. There are about 8 tables in the restaurant and the atmosphere is calm and relaxed. The food is fresh and home made. I particularly like the beef stroganoff, my... More

Not being from Derby originally, I stumbled upon Nico's whilst I was searching the internet for an Italian restaurant in Derby. My partner said he had been before but not for many years so we decided to eat there last night. We made a booking at late notice but as we wanted to eat fairly early there was no problem... More

This restaurant in my option is one of the best in Derby. It's a little walk out of the main centre of Derby but you won't be disappointed. The service is second to none with the that staff attentive but not overly, the food is brilliant. I'm working my way through the menu and haven't found a dish that I've... More

We visited Nico's restaurant recently with a party of six and had a lovely meal with very friendly & attentive service, the food was excellent and whilst the restaurant is not that big it has a lovely atmosphere about it. Will definitely be back.

A small intimate restaurant serving great food and friendly service. I would recommend Nicos for couples or small groups.

Visited in January, so quiet, but what we'd expect at the time of year. The staff were excellent, welcoming and friendly. The menu was mainly Italian with touches of other cuisines and all reasonably priced. The quality of the food was alright, but when so many pubs even do brilliant quality stone baked pizza i felt the offering here seemed... More

We visited here again and came especially for the fillet steak which was delicious as always. Customer service is good and we got to choose where to sit because unfortunately it was rather empty. Nicos really is a hidden gem and needs to be visited!
