We found Nico by strolling the streets of Carmel looking at menus. This was interesting and not disappointing in the least. Service was attentive but not overbearing. The meals were well prepared and generous. The menu is a mix of Greek and Italian. We tried some of each and enjoyed all of it. We would heartily recommend Nico. It is... More

The food is great, price is perfect for what you order, and the service is as good as the food. We eat here every time we are in town.

Walked by and got seated immediately on the side patio. Small area but quaint. The hostess, waiter and manager were all extremely attentive. We shared the minestrone soup. Good and hearty. My husband had the sand dabs. It was very good. I had the crab ravioli. It was yummy. Definitely would recommend. Nice inside with fireplace.

We had dinner in Nico's European restaurant on San Carlos Street one night last month while visiting the beautiful town of Carmel, California. I had the delicious ruccola salad (they call it "arugula" in America) with pears and blue cheese vinaigrette to start and my wife had the Gulf prawns. I then had the quadretti pasta with sausage and my... More

Nico in Carmel California is worth visiting. The food is great and the service is pleasing. The chef has a special skill for appealing flavors and combinations. Please give it a try if you are in town.

We happened to walk by this restaurant when we were in Carmel last year for "car week" and liked the lunch menu so went in and were seated immediately. Food was good and the service was excellent. We went again this August for lunch and again for dinner and it was still outstanding. We were not disappointed! The food was... More

$65 paid for two pasta plates that I would have been able to cook myself....20% tips already included in the bill...a shame honestly.
