A 'hidden gem'

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... read more

we,ve had lovely meals at Nico,s many times but recently i had to change my diet drastically and thought that we might not be able to dine there again. But having spoken to the chef he went out of his way to cook a meal for me that wasn't even on his menu.I doubt you would get that at many... More

Our first visit to NIco's after several recommendations. Enjoyed the excellent home cooking and reasonable prices, including good wine by the glass. A certain rustic atmosphere in a rather ordinary but convenient part of Derby, coupled with very friendly service, means that we will certainly go again.

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.

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 charming and as my friends and I... More
