We really liked it. It is very well decorated and charming, makes you feel confortable. There a lot of good pasta options, the main one is a spaghetti made inside a huge grana padano cheese. Very tasty and its so cool to see it being...made. They bring a little car and make it in your front!! So nice!! It is crowded, so maje sure to arrive early. They have only 2 cars to make the spaghetti inside the cheese, so it may take a while.More

The neighborhood of Ipiranga doesn't have many restaurants but has some addresses that are worth the visit. Nico is one of them. Calm and warm atmosphere, open kitchen, it proposes a more sophisticated Italian cuisine that escapes the normal tone of the noisy canteens of...the city.More

Restaurant very good, we were in 5 people and the dishes were all served at the same time and with an incredible quality. The couvert is very tasty and has a different cheese bread, head chef of the house the spaghetti in the cheese grana...is perfect and very tasty, the scalope with risotto of parmesan asks for a little more cheese, the medallion to the fungi with pure of mandioquinha is tastefull and the gnocchi with bufala muss was very good. For dessert we ordered a tiramisu which was divine and an Italian straw with very good almond flour. The ambiance is very pleasant and the service above average. We took our own wine they charge afair price to open and serve it.More

It's simple and good. Is not too expensive and the pasta has very good quality. I would recommend spaghetti or ravioli. Every pasta are home made and sauce is very tasty.

After reading so many great reviews we went to have dinner. We had a penne pesto and a fusilli alla massimo with a Antares Cabernet wine. The check was R$194. The place is fantastic. Very nice looking. Quite fancy. The food was really disappointing. Both...dishes were sort of tasteless. The cooking of the penne was excessive. The fusilli sauce was strange. We both left disappointed. Not sure I would go back.More

Excelent place, good serving, average price, totally approved. I recommend Taglerini with Ragu a blend of pasta with a little spicy tomato sauce, strong and nice flavour.

Ipiranga area is not well served either by restaurants or delivery, that's why we became regulars at Nico's. It is the only restaurant in the area that worths a visit. Service is good, great atmosphere and excelent food. Too bad they took the Lemon Sauce...Spaghetti from the menu...More
