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.
Amazing food and lovely staff , it’s a 5 star restaurant. They were under staff the night we went and they still got the food out on time . We live in Sutton In Ashfield and it’s well worth the trip to derby. Thanks

A hidden gem. Never knew there was a restaurant there. Friendly staff, great service, excellent food, great value for money. Glad we booked as only 9 covers. Disappointed customers turned away due to being fully booked. Looking forward to return visit.
