    Nico's is a little gem of a place, one of the best steaks I have ever had, perfect. Can't wait to go again!

    We enjoyed a very tasty meal here last night. The wine was great too and both meal and drink very reasonably priced. The weather was bad but the welcome and the food was very good. I can recommend Nico's.

    very impressed with the service at Nico's! The staff were friendly and the food was delightful! You must try their homemade pizza! It's like no other!

    Delicious meal with the family, staff were very pleasant and the value for money was less than I expected

We say…

Nico’s is one of the best restaurants to experience Italian home-cooking in Derby. Located right in the City Centre just off Friar Gate, it offers an wide-ranging menu with a selection of Italian, Mexican, English and vegetarian dishes.

The family-run restaurant provides a cosy and casual place to grab a tempting bite of whatever cuisine you fancy whether you want a classic British steak or a classic Italian pasta dish. The interior is humble and quaint with a southern-European ambiance, and provides lovely views of the bustling city while you relish your meal. There is a fully-licensed bar for those who are wishing to stay a little longer and staff are extremely attentive both in the kitchen and front of house so you’ll feel right at home!

Head chef Dave Stannard has created a menu so diverse that you’ll be spoilt for choice when deciding on what main to indulge in. Every plate has its own unique stamp, such as the ‘Nico’s Special’ pizza which embraces a variety of toppings including onion, peppers, sundried tomatoes, olives, chicken, garlic, Italian herbs and, of course, pepperoni. Or why not try the Mexican Chicken Fajitas, served with warm tortilla wraps and homemade sour cream and salsa. Delicious.

Nico’s also offers a superb traditional buffet menu and will happily cater to private parties upon request. In addition, they are able provide lunch time meals or buffets for business' for a reduced price which can be arranged upon booking. Or maybe you have something different planned? Not to worry, the chef will be more than happy to lend his skills and cater to your needs.The generosity of Nico’s is limitless!

So if you’re planning a trip to the city centre, be sure to book your place at Nico’s Italian restaurant in Derby, where you will be treated to lavish portions at exceptional value for money. You can’t get any fairer than that.
