when you walk into Nicks you get a sense your back in the 1960's. The staff are super friendly, very warm and inviting. The food portions are huge and delicious. The tomato sauce is so fresh and tastes homemade. very affordable love this place

Nick's has been around for a very long time. When you enter the restaurant you know it's going to be good because the amazing, home-style Italian aromas hit you...Although the decor is not sleek and modern -- the attention to detail is where it should be which is in the FOOD, the glorious food. No one makes better meatballs in... More

We were looking for a bite to eat after a play we attended at the York theatre next door to Nick's. As we were deciding whether or not to take a chance, a couple were leaving the restaurant and told us it was the best spaghetti they had ever eaten. We stepped inside to an atmosphere that brought us back... More

I remember growing up in this restaurant. The gnocchi is to die for and cheesecake as well. The decor is the same as when I was young but this is exactly what makes this place special. The love is in their food. The tomato and onion salad to start👏

My friend raved about Nick's so we went one night with my son. Clearly, the opinions can be divided. They serve old-fashion style spaghetti on checkered tablecloths. The portions are huge and you are expected to take home what you don't finish. We had the spaghetti with meatballs and ribs, the steak with spaghetti and the chicken cacciatore. There wasn't...

I had not been to Nicks in twenty years. On the spur of the moment we (just two of us) decided to go so we called first and was told "no wait". We got there 10 mins later and there was a huge lineup. We waited 45 mins to be seated. During that time we watched as at least 20... More

Many say Nick's is too expensive, a dive, lost it's luster over the years, blah blah blah. I have been going to Nick's since 1968 and over the years continue to a) go back, and b) order the spaghetti and meatballs. Expensive, no, not really when you consider it a feat to eat half your plate, so you take half... More

Recommended to us by some friends - place didn't disappoint. HUGE portions of delicious lasagna and clams fettucini. Very old school and down to earth. Will revisit :)

Nick's didn't last for 60 years without a good reason: they serve tasty food, family classics, in a no frills setting with friendly service. The dishes are richly flavoured and come in very generous proportions. They also serve some dishes in "smaller" portion sizes - and these are still very generous meals. Unless you have hollow legs, I would recommend... More
