We stopped into Nico"s as we were visiting the Derby area en route back from Liverpool. Nico"s is a family run business with a interior feel of a small Mediterranean cafe. The restaurant is clean, but has a slightly dishevelled feel which gives it character. To be clear, the last comment is a... read more

We have been to nicos a few times now and love it. Food is lovely and excellent value. First time we went we were a little worried as it's not in the greatest spot in Derby but it was fab and the staff are very friendly. When we went on my birthday last year the chef came out with a... More

I've visited a few times now and each time the food, staff and atmosphere have been top notch! We loved the free tequila for my friends birthday too!

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 waitress. Regrettably we... 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.
