Little gem of a place!

Visited here last weekend for the first time and was surprisingly surprised! Great food and wine at excellent prices! Not the most glamorous of places and unfortunately, being the only ones in at that time (around 9.00 pm on Sat night) it did lack a little atmosphere. But, the lady serving us was... read more

To put it simple, I love this place. My boyfriend and I went this evening and the food was gorgeous and the waitress was so bloody lovely. I've been many times before but this place needs to get more notice!

As the title states! What more do you want!? Family run restaurant that actually care about service. Beats chains Pizza Express and Zizzi' hands down for me.

So cosy! really great food, me and my parents went and all loved it, very reasonably priced, the people are very friendly and it was nice to find out its a family business. Well worth a visit :) and the home-made cheesecake was amazing

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!

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 compliment not a criticism. The service is... More

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
