The best kind of Italian restaurants are family-run Italian restaurants and Nico’s in the heart of Derby is just that. Just off the bustle of Friar Gate on Brick Street, here you’ll find hearty Italian fare prepared by experienced head chef, David Stannard, as well as a few Mexican-inspired dishes, too. We know that sounds like a bit of an odd combination to build a menu around but trust us, at Nico’s, it works. We’d suggest starting with a seafood platter to share then moving onto a hearty calzone or the spicy salmon pasta. Worth the trip from wherever you are in Derby, Nico’s is a real winner.
Good service, good food and a good atmosphere. We both really enjoyed the pizzas and they were more than sufficient to satisfy our appetites. We would certainly recommend Nico's to family and friends. Probably try the pasta next time.
Lovely cosy restaurant. Nice to get away from a 'chain'. Food was great Waitress really looked after us. Would love to go back and would recommend to anyone.
Lovely people, homely atmosphere and great food! Will definitely be going again! Staff were always making sure if we were OK and needed anything. Really not a bad word to say about the place!
