Best Steak in Derby!

After visiting Nico's with some newly formed work colleagues I am pleased to highly recommend this small and family run authentic Italian restaurant. Its location isn’t possibly one of the most central, however it is extremely easy to find and easy to park on the surrounding streets. We were... read more

Only been here the once and need to go back again! Great little restaurant just off the beaten track in Derby, with great service from the young girl on shift. I had the carbonara, which was one of the best I've tasted! Not sure what the wife had, but she enjoyed herself as much as I did. Reasonable prices, with... More

Really lovely little restaurant tucked away on the outskirts of Derby! We took some friends on a Tuesday evening and thoroughly enjoyed every one of our 3 courses. If you have the Tiramisu be warned it is a large portion and would be great to share - managed to eat mine-just!!!! Seafood pasta main course was divine. We would definitely... More

There were 14 members of our family at Nicos to celebrate my nieces 16th Birthday. The 2 ladies serving couldn't have been more attentive. All our meals were served at the same time which was excellent. The steaks served with diane sauce were extremely tasty and cooked to perfection!! We'll be visiting again and again.

(Last reviewed 8 November 2014) Just a little way outside of the City this no frills restaurant serves very good Italian food at a very reasonable price. It might be advisable to book (weekends) as it is quite a small restaurant.

I'm not quite sure how they make their delicious food for the fabulous prices. Much better than your chain italian restaurants. It has a certain chatty to go with it also. Fab service. restaurants Italians

We have visited this restaurant over many years and have always been very satisfied with the food and the service, however over recent times the portions seem to be getting smaller on every visit. Shame because its always been very good.
