We had to wait 45 minutes to be seated, without much of an apology or offer of a drink. It was freezing cold out and no place to wait inside the restaurant. They do not honor the timing of reservations, so DO NOT COME on the weekends! The food was okay, but overpriced for what we had.
Great service!! Thank you James for the special service ☺️
Food and wine were unrivaled. We had a great table next to the window overlooking lively street. Totally recommend Nico's to visitors coming to Boston!
The food was excellent! I just wish we had time to eat at Nico another night before our trip home. We will definitely be back!
The food was very delicious and very authentic. Our host also worked to get us this amazing two person table in front of the window secluded from the rest of the tables. It made for a really memorable evening!
Was well worth it. Started out with scallop appetizer and calamari. Both were best ever. Our party had a wide variety of entrees which were fantastic and portions were very generous. Took home most of it. The meatball was so good and smooth that only needed a fork. All dishes were top of the line.
Our waiter James was outstanding! His choice of wine to accompany our dinners was perfect.
Tyler always picks out the right wine and does a great job taking care of us
Always a great meal and service. Never disappointed,
Nico offers authentic Italian dishes that are simply delicious.
The food was great but there was very little seating even though we had reservations.
Best chicken parm I’ve ever had! Wine was great, too!
Loved the atmosphere and cozy seating. Food and service was excellent!
Found a table for use immediately in a busy restaurant. The waiter (Eddie) was great, engaging with great suggestions. Apps and main course were tasty. Nothing but good things to say.
It was nice
First time to Nico. Great place. A little tight but welcoming. Food was outstanding. Waiter was great. Hostess had a negative disposition. Had a 7 o’clock reservation. Called from airport that our flight would be delayed and they were accommodating to put us at 8. We did arrive at 7:15 but were apparently last of all the 8 o’clocks and were not seated until 8:30. We left restaurant at 9:45. It was a long evening after work and flights!
The food was excellent and very reminiscent of the food we had in Italy, though it needed a touch of salt. Nice ambience and a charming waiter as well. Prices are standard for the North End. Would recommend.
Lovely north end restaurant with authentic Italian food. The specials were excellent.
Excellent food! Restaurant was very busy and loud but evening was still enjoyable. We had the calamari appetizer and the vongole. Delicious!
wonderful food. Make reservation ..cozy and small..
reservations. ask to be upstairs. be prepared to wait for table but worth the wait
Excellent food! When is Boston I try to get to Nico. The restaurant is small so we were waiting quite a while beyond our reservation time. To be fair we were a few minutes late. Overall I give Nico excellent marks for food and service. Our waiter was attentive and the hostess apologized several times. I highly recommend eating at Nico. When the restaurants around Nico have open tables and Nico’s is packed it should tell you something.
Tyler did an awesome job making a normal night out feel like a special occasion
The food is quite good, but the portions are insanely huge. Seriously, a meatball that is about 4 inches in diameter as an appetizer?! I ordered one appetizer-sized dish and was full after consuming 1/2 of it. My husband loved his clam/mussel app followed by a pasta dish, but he couldn't finish his either, and he's a "clean plate club" kind of guy. For their part, they were complete apologetic about the mountain of food. I'm not going back.
Great service, amazing food! Limited bar with only beer, wine, and cordials, so if you're looking for a stronger drink, have it after your amazing meal! Cozy and intimate setting. Definitely will come back here next time in the area.
What a blast we had celebrating our one year anniversary here last week!! The food was absolutely phenomenal because of how flavorful it was— from the spicy mussels and clams and pesto app to the scallops and veal we had for dinner. So much better than I remembered from our first date two years ago. We passed over the two window tables and were thrilled to cram into the table near the stairs where we shared our first meal ever together. The music and rose on the table as well as the red walls and gray service led to a wonderful ambiance! Highly recommend.
Exceptional service and wonderful food! A bit cozy setting.
Really nice small restaurant in North Boston. Very good food and great service.
Staff is absolutely amazing, food is stellar. GREAT North End find.
Nico always delivers impeccable service paired with delicious food and wine every time I visit. It's one of the few places in Boston I can count on deliver a great experience and is one of my go-to place to bring guests.
My wife, son and son's girlfriend had dinner prior to a Bruins game. We arrived earlier than our son and were able to sit at the bar and enjoy the ambiance of the surroundings before our son arrived and we were seated at a table.
Our waiter had the friendliest demeanor - extremely helpful on food selections and continually expressed to us to take our time - never felt rushed or ignored.
We will be back.
Went there for a birthday celebration. The service once we were seated was fantastic and the food and wine were great as well. It’s clearly a very popular place and was bursting at the seams at 9pm on Friday night. The only star docked is because we were seated 30 mins late at our table and there was hardly any standing room in the very crowded restaurant. But great food, wine and table service.
My husband and I have been going to Nicos for years! We finally got a chance to get back after our second child-which has been about 3 years. It was just as we remembered and can't wait to go back again!
Staff is serious but they are very attentive and the service is excellent.
Fantastic dinner and wine. Cannot wait to go back during a future visit to Boston.
Very small restaurant and we were a big party so we took over the dining room. Would not go there with more than 4 people next time.
Had a great meal- my second time at the restaurant. Would love to see some salmon on the menu or other non-shellfish option. The sea bass sounds great but too pricey! Settled for veggie eggplant parmigiana both visits which was excellent. Friends had the lobster crepes-outstanding!
Nice North End restaurant. Nice food; quiet atmosphere. Friendly neighborhood feel.
delicious homemade pastas and fresh fish...seated right away with our reservation and service was attentive and fast and friendly.
This place is delicious, we enjoyed every bite! Our waiter was awesome, being in the basement was weird, but we actually liked it!
Loved this place, when we come back to Boston we will be there again!
