All 3 of us had enjoyable meals. We all had pasta dishes, one with wild boar, one was a daily special and the third was a wild mushroom dish. Each dish came with a house salad. Fresh bread to start. Service was good as well. The next table was a little loud at times and made it difficult to have a normal conversation.

5 of us had a delicious dinner on Sunday. Each of us ordered a different pasta dish. Each choice was absolutely outstanding. Each salad starter was fresh and tasty. We had a very helpful server. She was helpful, experienced and very professional. It was our granddaughters birthday. We brought a cake and at the end their presentation was great. 5 very full and very happy customers left the resto with a great impression and will be looking forward to returning very soon! Thanks everyone for making our celebration wonderful.

Might be my new favourite restaurant. Have always enjoyed but it’s an unsung gem in the Winnipeg restaurant market. This chef cooks with love for real food! Would highly recommend at any time of day.

Best calamari we've had so far! Ask them to leave out lemons/dipping sauce (or put on the side), so they give more calamari. Meatballs, pizza, bread are delicious. Great place for friends/family/co-workers.

This was my first time going to Nicolino's. It was a special occassion for a special group of friends who were saying goodbye to one of us. The service was impeccable, with the waiter anticipating every need, and who described the delicious food to a "T." The food was incredible - a very authentic Italian food experience. The pasta alfredo sauce was spectacular and the homemade bread rolls just perfect. Everything about the place made our gathering so memorable, and I truly appreciate that. I will definitely return!!

The drinks were great. The 2 pasta dishes we tried weren’t the best. I can’t speak for the pizza which many tables around us had ordered, and looked very good. The service was good, we had 3 different wait staff take our food and drink orders. It was a busy night when we came and we were disappointed to hear that they were so backed up with orders that pasta likely wouldn’t be an option for 45 minutes, but that pizza would be made promptly. We had made a reservation and had both planned to order pasta so we said we would wait. Overall disappointed in this experience. I can’t say I will return.

We were absolutely delighted with our service. Food was delicious. Only disappointment was the seating arrangement. Granted, it was Valentine's Day, we anticipated it would be busy, but we were not expecting to"share" a long table with two other couples. Although an attempt was made to provide a "partition" between ourselves and the adjoining party, it was not conducive to a private conversation, by any means. Just thankful the young couple beside us were very pleasant and we were able to share a couple of moments that were not awkward...

Although a little noisy it remains a favorite.
When the manager came out at the end of the evening to refund one of our entrees ( many of the mussels had not opened), we were shocked - as we had not requested an adjustment. It was a very gracious gesture - and we were most appreciative.
It continues to be a restaurant that values its customers - and a reason we continue to go back!

My partner and I went in to Nicolinos for a date night and were quite disappointed. The wait for the food was over an hour and our meals came out cold. I had chosen the feature pasta which didn’t include any proteins. It was a surprise when they put my plate down and it included fish. I returned my meal and did not eat as I didn’t want to wait another hour so instead they offered me coffee. I was extremely disappointed with my experience at Nicolinos and so is my partner who’s meal was mediocre at best.

My only very small issue was mushrooms in my pasta. The waitress asked if I wanted to add any and I said yes. There were sooo many mushrooms. I had a piece of mushroom with every bite of pasta and when I was all done the noodles there were still 10+ pieces left over. Everything else was amazing though, the service, the food, the prices.

This restaurant has been steadily improving over the years and my most recent experience was outstanding -- from the friendly staff to the breadsticks and my delicious pasta. My friends ordered an appetizer of calamari and I declined to join in at first. I have never been a fan of calamari which I generally find a bit like deep fried, tasteless, and slightly greasy rubber. But I was pleasantly surprised! The calamari was not only delicious but crispy and tenderly chewy. I will definitely return!
