My wife had eaten here with friends a few months ago and suggested we eat there when a rare 'date night' came about with our kids spending a night a grandparents. From the outside it doesn't look fancy, it is only when you walk in you get a sense of intimacy and a warm and friendly welcome from the staff.... More

Me and my partner first dined and nicos around 3 years ago when Valentine's Day crept up on us quicker than we realised! They were extremely accommodating when we made the reservations and managed to get us in at a very reasonable time despite the late notice. Since then we have visited nicos at very least a dozen times or... More

From the moment you walk in the staff are working on making you feel welcome and finding out exactly what YOU want. They offer a rare combination of informality and professionalism. There is plenty to choose from without the menu being over extensive. 'Hidden extras' in this restaurant basically means they will, give you some ingredients extra not listed on... More

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 ??
