We stayed in Swaffham on Sunday and Monday and after a decent but soulless meal in our hotel on the Sunday night we wanted somewhere with some atmosphere.

I'd read the reviews here before went to Nico's and I have to agree with the majority of them. I would thoroughly recommend Nico's. The starter, main course and desert were all really tasty and the wine recommended by the waiter was excellent.

For a Monday night in Swaffham, it was really busy, but the service was still great and the bill was a lot lower than I expected.

Try it, you won't be disappointed.

We popped into Nico's for an cozy evening meal, had a nice warm welcome, good glass of wine, and reasonably priced, nicely presented meal. The food wasnt amazing, but that said, got plenty, and the ambiance was really nice. we'd return if in the area.

This is a small family run restaurant with absolutely superb authentic Italian food and wine. The service is excellent to match - very highly recommended!

I visited Nico's recently with my parents, my husband and our 2 sons. It's a quaint little Italian restaurant with very friendly helpful staff and lovely food. We really enjoyed our visit and would definitely go back again next time we're in Swaffham. Well worth a visit

Genuine Italian Restaurants are very thin on the ground in rural Norfolk. So it was with eager and pleasurable anticipation that we greeted the opening of one such in Swaffham by two brothers a few years ago. The premises had been occupied for very many years by a succession of chef proprietors offering mainly French cuisine. So it was with a breath of fresh air that the premises were refurbished and reopened in the Italian style. Rather like an Italian equivalent of a French Bistro. Nico, the chef proprietor is an efficient cook of a good range of tasty Italian inspired dishes. Fresh local produce is evident but the Italian atmosphere is carefully and efficiently crafted front of house by his brother Carm. A good partnership that encourages a happy evening in a warm ambience. Well done! We dine there occasionally, but regularly, and have always enjoyed the utmost consistently good welcome and service.
