Having read the reviews we looked forward to going and it was as good as everything we had hoped Very well priced, great home cooked fresh food, the friendliest staff and a warm atmosphere The pizza and pasta are top notch and so are the steaks, we're working our way through the menu week after week. The home made tiramisu... More

Been here so many times over the years and seen some changes for better and worse. It's a very cosy little place and the staff make you so welcome but decor a little tired and loos very basic but it has that retro feel that makes it nice. The food had to be prebooked and a deposit given as a... More

The restaurant is small and cosy, lovely atmosphere, service was second to none. We had seafood platter and quesadillas for starters both of which were fresh and very tasty. My lasagne was the best I've had outside of Italy, and I've tried a few!! The fajitas hubby had looked great and the portions were very generous. The homemade tiramisu made... More

We have been twice to this little place, once about 9 years ago and again recently and it hasn't changed at all. The food is good. Great value and great tasting. The waitresses were friendly and happy to help. Only gave it 4 stars as the tables are old and sticky. Time for a refurb maybe ??

I really do love it here. It's so small and intimate . Great for a night with a few friends. The food is great, not the usual fancy look but good , quality food and good portion size . Their fajitas and lasagne are great. Really really pleasant and helpful staff .

Had been busy spring cleaning most of the day, so my partner suggested going for a meal. Although they offered an early table which wasn't a problem for us, turns out they had a party booking later on. Lovely well prepared food, friendly attentive service.. tirimasu to die for, made in house by the owners... absolutely the best.

Yet another fantastic meal in this family run restaurant. Calzone, filled to the brim and topped with bolognese sauce and one of their Garlic Bianco's with mushrooms, superb. Follow that with one of mums home made desserts, a great end to a truly enjoyable meal. A warm and friendly greeting as soon as you enter Nico's with that all important... More
