Had the spaghetti and meatball. A basic choice, but very flavorful, delicious, and filling. Servers were efficient and attentive.
Small place, food was great and of good quality. Especially love the gnocchi and the veal chop!
Food was incredible. Veal chop stuffed and scallops. Pure heaven.
It was a nice dinner overall! We got the lobster crepe and lobster ravioli, and while the ravioli portion was small as usual, the crepe was amazing. You could taste the lobster so well. Nice cozy place but pretty small, so be sure to make a reservation for weekends!
Birthday dinner. Amazing food. A must try!
Great food and service cant wait to come back!
The food was excellent and the service as well. The only complaint I have is that we were not seated until over 45min after our reservation time. That was they only thing from being 5 out of 5
Unreal food. Great service. One of the best chicken parms I’ve ever had.
Great dinner, great location.
Food was pretty good, the amount of food given was pretty large. Tables are a little small.
While visiting Boston for the day and for an evening concert at the Garden, Nico was a reasonable walk (10 minutes) from the Garden and very easy to find. We had a reservation, were seated immediately upon our arrival and loved the open air environment. Our waitstaff were very personable, responsive and pleasant. Our food was quick to arrive and excellent in both presentation and quality, and was very reasonably priced for the portions that were provided. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Nico and would absolutely plan to go there again next time we are in the city.
Outstanding meal at Nico, from the Meatball appetizer to the various pasta and meat dishes for our main course, everyone raved about the food. Appetizers were a little slow coming out, but otherwise exceptional service and will definitely be back as there were about 5 or 6 other items on the menu I want to try!
My wife and I have been to Nico quite a few times: It is always very good.
Dinner here was fantastic. Our server was very attentive and knowledgable. We had the meatball (polpetta) as an appetizer - one of the best, and biggest I've ever had. You can also get this with spaghetti as an entree. I also highly recommend the Rigatoni Alla Sal. The shrimp and scallops could not have been cooked more perfectly. I hope to find myself back in Boston and at this restaurant soon! There are so many more dishes to try. I also found the prices to be very reasonable for what it is.
From the service to the wine to the pasta to the burrata salad, our evening was spectacular.
We had a party of nine and the service was excellent. Food was amazing from the veal chop to the swordfish to the ravioli. All around great night
Outstanding food!! Service was wonderful. The only downfall was the heat. It was so very hot and uncomfortable. But the food and service made up for the heat!
Had a lovely dinner here. Gluten free pasta options available. If they have the Burrata with prosciutto as an appetizer when you go, GET IT. And their Alfredo sauce is divine. 5/5
Good choice for our July 4th meal. The North End was unusually quiet and NICO's was a great choice
Great dinner. I enjoyed Luciano prepared for us. The Hostess with the most was amazing as well. Thank you for the great suggestion on the cannolis. Can wait to see you guys soon for dinner.
The food was quite good but perhaps overpriced. One bottle of wine, two appetizers, five pasta entrees, and three desserts, $285 including tip.
Nicos lost their air conditioners two days before we dined there. It was the hottest day of the year when we were there. Our table was in the basement. We tried to hang in there but it was so hot it was stifling. We watched as five different parties with reservations walked out due to the heat. We should have done the same. They finally offered to set us up at the bar. The food was outstanding but it was so hot you couldnt enjoy it.
I would go there again but not during the summer after our experience.
The food quality is always good. However, the service has become under-expectation during the past couple visits. It takes quite a while for us to check in. Sometimes, the staff just keeps trying to ask us leave. Today there’s no air-conditioning. We were just sweating all the time.
Awesome food. Great service.
We arrived for our dinner reservation and were seated on time. Our waiter was prompt and very good with suggestions. The food came in large portions and was very good.
Excellent food and service. The meatball appetizer is a must.
Food was fabulous. I got the Cioppino and it was more than I imagined. It was very tasty and the perfect amount of spicy. Lots of seafood and a huge half lobster tail. Plenty for leftovers. I would definitely go again and would order this meal again. DELISH!
Our waiter was very nice. Cocktails were good. Although, they do not have a full bar. Aperol Spritz was great.
Awesome date place
Fantastic experience, table was ready for our reservation (even tho there was a long wait outside ) and our server was a very nice gentleman who helped us pick out a nice bottle of wine to go with our dinners
Great restaurant overall. Waiter was solid, fresh pasta! Meatballs were amazing.
One of the best Italian restaurants I have ever been too. The service and food was phenomenal. Will definitely return.
The staff and food was amazing!!! Best night/meal/experience ever. Thank you for making my kids birthdays great💕
Always a great meal at Nico. Our favorite is the lobster crepe. We go often and always have had outstanding service and food.
Food was very good! Service was equally great! Can't wait for the next time we are in Boston to go back.
We had a very enjoyable meal here. Generous servings, a more expensive than some Northend restaurants but worth it. Very small place. We were in the basement dinning room which was quieter than upstairs. Waiter was fun and attentive.
This is our second trip back to Nico’s for the meatballs! They are the best. Service was wonderful too! Love the atmosphere. Upstairs is much nicer but we didn’t want to wait. We will return!!
Much smaller than i expected so if you're looking for an intimate, nice restaurant for a special occasion this is it; not if you're looking for a fun big restaurant. Food was delicious! The wine was amazing, I would definitely recommend this spot
Sat at the bar and had a wonderful dinner. Stuffed veal chop and the meatball were outstanding.
Excellent food and fun atmosphere - great option before an event at the garden. Portions are large especially the meatball! Service ok but waiter arrogant and slow to take orders .
