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.
Food was delicious. Waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful re gluten free choices. Also very much enjoyed waiter's approach. WOuld eat here again.
Fantastic dinner and the waitress was amazing. It was very busy but they were accommodating to our group.
Fantastic meal. And service was wonderful. One of our favorite places to dine !!
Great place for food and service! Never had a bad experience there! I am a frequent visitor, plus if anyone is new in town, I will take them for a treat and hopefully get them hooked on the experience.
Food was very good. Came out at a good temp. Was provided excellent service. Our waiter Ken was friendly and very knowledgable.
I really enjoy the food here. Breadsticks and salads are great.
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!!
Not a good value rather disappointed food quality, price and quantity wasn't worth it
Great food and service
Awesome food, nice vibe, and very affordable! Great for all ages, and the menu has lots of options for all appetites.
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...
Excellent food with great flavour. We found the portions a little small. Service was excellent!
The food was good, our waiter Ken was really knowledge & helpful with the menu. When I go back again I would ask for him as our waiter .
Great evening with long-time friends.
Our waiter Ken was knowledgeable,very friendly & attentive. Food was a little pricey but delicious.
Nicolinos might just be the best upscale Italian restaurant in Winnipeg! Excellent food, service and ambiance with excellent parking!
Great food/great staff and service - as always!!
would highly recommend!
The food was great. Service was very good. 2nd visit in 2 weeks. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
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!
We reserved a table and they sat us in a private, semi-closed off room. The restaurant was great! A hidden treasure.
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.
noise level was unbearable. table at which we were seated was beside a door, which was very cold
Good food, lots of selections. Will return.
Amazing food and great service like always. Thank you
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.
The food was excellent and the service with Ken was unbelievable. Fabulous restaurant!!!
Well rounded experience considering the server, environmental, and food of course!
Excellent meal! Tasty and exceptional! Will definitely go again. Wish the pop refills were at no cost though.
It’s always great here. Never had a bad meal or bad service!!!
I have dined at Nicolino's three times in the last 9 days, twice for dinner and once for lunch. I selected different dishes on all visits and all were excellent and very good value.
Always a great meal, a great bonus they are on Open Table.
Everyone at the table had delicious meals. This is one of my favourite restaurants and it did not disappoint. Unfortunately Ken was not available to wait on us as he was occupied with a large and busy table. However the service was good and the waitress was helpful and pleasant.
Everything was excellent as usual! Always a pleasure to eat at your restaurant!
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!
Our server was exceptional! Nice restaurant. Fabulous appetizers, Calamari and bruschetta
Pastas, not bad but lacking seasoning unfortunately
I brought a friend there for the first time and she had the veggie burger and Ceasar salad. She said it was fantastic and would come back to support a local restaurant that served great food.
