We enjoyed our dinner out. Service was professional, meal was excellent. The place was quieter than normal due to less people however we prefer it to be this way so it actually improved our experience.
They are what we expect as we have been here many times. Very good place for smaller groups or couples.
One of the jewels of Calgary for dining.
We’ve been coming for years and always love Niko’s. Food and staff are wonderful
Great food and great service with care and attention given to stop the spread of Covid19. Thanks for a lovely night!
The food & service is always outstanding every time we come!
This was our first time here based on a friends recommendation and we were not disappointed. The calamari was delicious as starter, just the right amount of spice. My fiancee had the carbonara and it was delicious, creamy but not heavy. I had the Vitello Saltimbocca and it was incredible, the pasta was perfect and the meat cooked to perfection. We also indulged in some cheesecake for dessert and loved it. This is an absolute must have for Italian cuisine, it reminded us of being in Italy again.
Amazing as always. Felt totally comfortable and safe with their social distancing measures. We ❤️ nikos!
Best Calgary has to offer, The food is amazing and the service is even better.
It was amazing.
As usual, the best! Warm and inviting staff. Delicious food, fantastic wine!
As always food and service outstanding
Food was great!
Niko’s is always amazing. Threat food and service. Our alll time favourite restaurant.
The food was of fine dining quality, generous portions at a fair price. All 3 of us enjoyed our meals and we will definitely be back. The service was friendly and the ambience cozy.
We had decided that once they reopened up Niko's was the first place we wanted to visit. Not just the food but the people was the driving motivation. Niko and his staff have implemented all of the safety procedures and take pride in the health/safety of not only their staff but their customers as well as a family owned business should. We had a wonderful dinner and can't wait to go back again which we are!
Best calamari period ..
Spaghetti Carbonara was very good. Bread arrived cold and dry. Bruschetta was the worst tasting we’ve ever had. It had an odd flavour.
Service was very slow despite the restaurant not being very busy.
Niko’s is a the gem of Kensington. Always consistently good.
Amazing food and service. Definitely a spot you want to tell people about.
Great fresh food with family run ambiance combined with good service.
Fantastic food, knowledgeable and friendly service
Niko pays a lot If attention you his diners and always stops by to see how it is. A great deal of attention paid to all aspects of the dining experience
It was very satisfying and delicious!
Excellent, as usual. Predictable in the best possible way.
It is always excellent at Nikos. The best Italian restaurant in Calgary. Can't wait to go back. Thanks Niko!
Food was excellent but for very small portion for how much we paid.
Two of us had lamb shank and there was not a lot of meat on it....risotto was ok not outstanding.
I remember being there a few years ago and had the same dinner and the portion size was bigger.
Lamb shank is always a little pricey but the value was not there this time.
Niko's continues to provide high quality meals at an affordable price. food is always outstanding, service was wonderful and we never leave disappointed. It continues to be a destination of choice for an evening out with good food . We often go before shows at the jubilee and love the atmosphere and efficiency when we have timelines to meet. Bravo Niko's we recommend you to all our friends!
A lovely place to eat, food is always delicious. Service was excellent and owner makes you feel welcome
we have been a number of times and the food is always fabulous.Cozy atmosphere and not a very large space so relatively intimate.Great to have a good restaurant where the owner is attending to the customers personally.
My husband and I love going to Niko's for a dinner out. We always get the calimari, which is the best I've had anywhere (and I'm from the Maritimes). Excellent service, quiet so you can actually hear each other, delicious food that's well priced.
I enjoy going to Niko’s. Food is good. Casual atmosphere. I come here often
Really enjoyed our lunch at Niko's. It is such a nice place to eat. The service is friendly and the food is good.
Wonderful as usual
Always great food.
Older servers are better, more considerate and mannered. Young ones are ok.
The food and atmosphere were amazing. We will be back again very soon!
Always good a treat to go, in fact one of my favourites for Italian!!!
Thank you and love the moose!!!!
Love this place! Make sure you book ahead as it fills up.
My wife and I enjoyed another anniversary dinner at Niko's and they did not disappoint. Service was very friendly and prompt. My wife who doesn't usually enjoy seafood took to the calamari which I also enjoyed. Our entrees were of the quality and portion we've come to expect which was well worth the value. We typically share a dessert but the tiramisu was so good we had to order one each. Looking forward to our next visit to this gem.
Excellent food but strangely slow service considering that the restaurant was not busy.
Excellent in all aspects. Highly recommend and will definitely go back.
