Small and intimate.

There are many good restaurants on Windsor's Erie street, but this is the best. Hard to get in to so book ahead.

We went to Nico because of a friends recommendation. It is a quaint little Italian restaurant with great service and great food and very reasonable prices. We started off with cocktails & caprese salad which was delicious. We wanted the gnocchi but didn't want the sauce that it came with so they accommodated us and we chose another from the... More

Simply the best for great food and knowledgeable, friendly service. If we want to impress or if we want to know we're having a meal that is worth the money we'll pay, this is the place to go. I've been to Europe and Italy a number of times. Frankly, Nico is outstanding.

Been there with some relatives. They took me there to try some Italian food in Windsor. Staff really attentive and very good food. Prices a bit high but the restaurant worth it.

Nico's has always been a favourite of mine. The food is delicious. I love their seafood soup and seafood salad. The lamb shank was so tender and absolutely melts in your mouth. They have the best tiramisu on Erie St. Thanks Johnny for making our evening so enjoyable. You are the best.

We have been going to Windsor's Little Italy on Erie Street every year for about 12 years, often trying new restaurants and, for the most part, we've enjoyed each one. For years we went back to Pasticcio's and we really enjoyed it, although we used to look across the street at Nico's wondering if the food and service was as... More
