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.
Great value for money. Tasty food freshly made and a good choice of drinks. We had veg lasagne and red wine which was perfect.
A true gem of a restaurant - we love our visits here. Had the veg antipasti to start which was so flavoursome. Salmon pasta had just the right amount of chilli. Fab!
We always have lovely food and attentive service at Nico's. My friend had steak and said it was lovely. Pizza was great too.
