From the appetizers to the wine, an evening at Nico Ristorante was top notch. Attention to detail, flavours and presentation were wonderful. They were also very willing to accommodate fussy eaters!!

I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. The service and food are excellent. I wish it were a little bigger to keep the noise level a little more under control, but that's really my only complaint.

Had dinner with friends at Nico's. They had been there before and recommended it. We ordered lots of different things and shared them around the table. Everything was good, including the service. I think my favorite was the wild boar Bolognese. The wine list was interesting and well selected. There is something for everyone as far as taste and price.... More

Portions too large! The core of the dish is good but it is drowned in stuff. Had the veal chop- chop itself tasty and tender but then lost in the rapini/ cheese & prosciutto topping- accompanied by cheese ravioli in a tomato/ eggplant sauce & sautéed beans in a tomato sauce- way too much going on! Osso bucco also tasty... More

I have enjoyed each meal that I have ever had at Nico Ristorante. I visited most recently with my wife and son on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was booked solid, as is usual, so reservations are recommended. It is one of the more intimate settings on Erie Street. We chose the bruschetta as an appetizer and really enjoyed the... More

This restaurant is perfect for Italian lovers. The menu is very good, serving sizes are great. A bit pricey but worth every penny for the food and atmosphere. Makes a great date night restaurant.

This place reminds me of the authentic restaurants in Italy. The service with Laura was perfection. The pace of the food and the evening was superb. The appetizer's were scrumptious. The calamari was soooo good and cooked to perfection. The gnoochi tre formaggi was over the top. Wild boar pasta was very good. This place will definitely see me again.... More

Hands down one of the best restaurants in Windsor's Little Italy. Nicos is our favourite place for all our special occasions. If you want authentic Italian, this is the place! Beautiful atmosphere, and very attentive staff. You won't be disappointed!
