Amazing service and amazing food, Niko’s is an outstanding restaurant! I highly recommend !
Always delicious food! The bruschetta is delicious (but garlicky!) and the manicotti is so tender and light. All 4 of us devoured our meals and will definitely be back.
The food was a bit salty
Simply amazing service and amazing food! We will be back.
Food was great, services was also great. Very much enjoyed our evening.
The food was delicious and the servers and owner kept you well looked after

Great neighbourhood gem with consistently good food and service.
One of our favorite spots in Kensington, the food is always cooked perfectly and the service is excellent. Its casual and the staff always make you feel welcome, I sincerely hope they can survive this pandemic mess.
Excellent as usual.
Always great service and great food at nikos!! Great place for lunch or dinner!
Great food & fabulous service. This restaurant never disappoints. Our appetizer of calamari and house bread with oil was delicious and the main entrees and selection of desserts were also enjoyed by all.

Niko’s is the best Italian food in the city. Always fresh and wonderful
Always the best for a date or for the family. Food is excellent.
Great place amazing service
Wonderful tasting food
Another wonderful meal at Niko’s Bistro. It is one of our favourite places to go for dinner.
Amazing food! Great time with friends!
for people with hearing issues, the acoustics were 0/10 and very difficult to communicate with friends - let alone hear the server.
I would like to return as I've eaten there about 5 times now - however and regrettably a location that supports conversation is higher on the list!
Thank you it was wonderful!!! Loved it all!!!
My wife and I always enjoy the food and staff at Niko's. Can't wait until the Pork Belly comes back!
We believe in supporting local restaurants in Calgary.
Never disappoints. Great food. Great service. Can’t wait to go back.
The food here is amazing. Our waitress was really good as well. Calamari is a must have. I had the spagettini frutti di mare. Delicious
Niko's is always 5 star in our opinion. We can't say enough about the great service and the excellent food. The best!
Great dinner ! Service was very good ! The Appetizers, Mains and Dessert were all delicious!! Will definitely go back!!
We always have a delicious dinner with excellent service!
Food was very good and came out quick and timely. Service was good and attentive.
Another fabulous evening at Niko's. Food was excellent, portions are generous and hot. Service was attentive, helpful and prompt, but not overwhelming. Will certainly return again soon.
What is one of the lasting treasures of this area? Niko's. This place has been the spot of mine and my wife's various celebrations over the years we've been together, from one of our first dates to our latest birthday celebration. If we're going somewhere nice, Niko's is the bare minimum for fulfilling that requirement. The food is great, the drink selection is great, and every time we go, we have great conversation as we talk between courses, between the fantastic service. If only we lived closer now-a-days, we'd come by more often.
I was recommended Niko's from a co-worker so my wife and I, always egger for new dinning experiences, made a reservation for our 30 yr anniversary. There are lots of choices on the menu but we choose to do the family plate option. This is a 5 course plan that you can pick what to have or have the kitchen choose. Like some of our travels in Europe we let the kitchen decide as this is a fun way to eat and there is always a surprise. Niko's kitchen made wonderful choices and we were amazed at the selection that came to our table. to start it was bruschetta then calamari and Gamberi sambuca, followed by Ceaser and Caprese salad, then a mushroom risotto and pasta plate, the main was braised lamb shank with veggies. Then to top it all off (like we could eat any more) was a plate of tiramisu and chocolate mousse. Staff was outstanding in this little hole in the wall restaurant, when in the Kensington Niko's is the place to go and we traveled from the deep SE. We left stuffed and had to tuck our heads and roll back to our car. Our meal at Niko's was FABULOUS and we will be back.
Love this place...Everything is delicious and Niko is so friendly. Highly recommend!
That pork belly special absolutely slapped. Would come back for that dish without hesitation.
Niko's is one of our favorite restaurants and recommend it for sure! Good food and friendly service.
Our only issue, as we find this with many restaurants, is that the floor and ceiling etc. are not conducive to a quiet evening. We like more quiet but recognize that most prefer a "happening" place!
Food as always was great. Always enjoyable to visit
Always a great experience at Niko’s
Our visit to Niko’s was great. I requested the table by the window and received it. My girlfriend had the carbonara and I had the manicotti which were both delicious. The service was outstanding throughout.
Always fantastic. The food is incredible. Staff and owner Niko are always welcoming. Wish we had the time to go more often. Can’t wait to go back. Thank you !
Very reliable, lovely restaurant. Friendly service and unpretentious.
Our server was friendly, present, but not hovering. Food flavourful and nicely presented. Overall a great experience. Would definitely go again.
One of our favourites. So happy that Nikos had reopened. Same excellent food. Can't wait to go back.
