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.
Service and food was fantastic, not rushed, well timed. Food arrived at the table hot. Highly recommend
everything was good, but the lights could be better - in most lamps there were only one bulb! and as far as I could see, they were able to have 2 bulbs in it.
Delicious food!! Gluten free options! Nice staff and great atmosphere! Would eat here again!
Everything about Niko's is outstanding! I am sure the phrase "food is love" originates from Niko's. Niko's is my favourite restaurant in Calgary, delicious menu items and wines, great value and a convenient Kensington location for a great night out. I have been at Niko's more than a dozen times for business and personal events and have always been impressed, and I plan on returning for many more memorable culinary experiences. Thank you Niko and staff!
Good food. On the expensive side. Great service.
This is a great quaint neighbourhood gem. They have consistently good food and drink options at reasonable prices. We had excellent service despite being a full restaurant.
We had a great time with AMAZING food at Niko’s as always!
The service was excellent and the food was very good. The portions were just right so we had room for your wonderful desserts. We will definitely be back and will recommend to friends.
Carolyn, Tom , and David.
As always great place to go!!! Will definitely be back soon
All good, great food, wonderful service, our two girls took great care of us, in fact we are going back in two days!!!
This was my second time at Niko’s and both times the food and service were outstanding. My husband and I had the salsicchia and polenta to start, which was delicious, although we found the portion a bit small for the price. Then we had the carbonara and the tenderloin dish, which were two of the best Italian dishes we had in town. We also ordered the creme caramel and the banana dessert which were also fantastic. It is hard to find a restaurant that we like all of the courses, but Niko’s has achieved that mark for us. The seats by the window can be a bit too cold, and the noise level is a bit louder than we would like, but these were minor issues when compared to the great quality of food and service we received.
