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.
Lovely little intimate place went with the Husband for a bday meal and would go again had a fabulous evening. The waitress was lovely and nothing was too much trouble. The food was very tasty and obviously home made. We took the rest of our pizza home and had it for lunch the next day. I would definitely recommend. Not expensive either.
Very well looked after at Nico’s. Steak cooked to perfection and a varied choice with many classic Italian but also Mexican dishes too. Very nice smell independent restaurant
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.
