Niko’s is perfect for sharing wine, stories and food with friends and family. The atmosphere is always lively and full of excitement!

Dinner: Sunday - Thursday: 5:00pm - 10:00pm, Friday - Saturday: 5:00pm - 10:00pm
Niko is very friendly and amazing. The staff is not. Not very knowledgeable about their own menu, and not very friendly. After we were seated out waitress dissapeared for about 15mins, then we asked another waitress to help us, who then took over the table
The owner is amazing! Service is good, nothing special. Food is great! Ambiance is relaxed and cozy.
Everything was fantastic - food, wine, price-point and service!
Cute little restaurant, great food and service!
Niko’s is always ready to vegan’ize some of the items on the menu, which is appreciated.
Consistently delicious with good service! Have come here for different occasions over the years and have never been disappointed. The owner always makes a point of coming to your table to ensure everything is to your liking.
We went out for dinner with another couple and it was a great ambiance for that . It was it was lovely and full on a Thursday evening but still quite enough that conversation was very easy . They re-organize the table and added a piece of hi backed furniture at the front entrance that makes every table better than it used to be. A classic Italian menu but they were very happy to do some options for us to create unique dishes .
Niko’s is exceptional! Food is wonderful and the service is fantastic.
Great food and a very pleasant place for lunch.
Its funny how one can live in a neighbourhood and not get a place they see often. This was the case for me as I knew it was a small place so reservations were a good idea. Luckily a month ago we called and they were able to fit us in with little notice. That food and customer service experience brought me back three weeks later to enjoy my birthday dinner as the atmosphere and continued amazing food and service was perfect to make a memorable birthday visit with my brother and a friend. I would highly recommend for a special occasion or relaxing evening dinner. Most excellent! Glad its an option I will be going back to more often!
Service was attentive and excellent. Food was tasty, not overwhelming and healthy.
Loved it! Great vibe and good food. Niko is a master! We’ll be back.
Must book a reservation! Service from the waitresses was sub par but the owner made up for any lacking service. In fact, it was his incredible impact that I would absolutely go back.
The food was absolutely amazing. There were four in our party and everyone was impressed with the excellent food. Our server was not very vibrant and didn't smile much - she didn't seem happy doing her job. We had different servers bring us our food and they were friendly and helpful. It was quite loud, but not so loud that we could not have a wonderful conversation.
I can't wait to return to Niko's with my husband and friends!
An awesome dinner with attentive service! A good time was being had by all it seemed:)
Have been to Niko’s for years. We really enjoyed the food. Ambience is good. The owner always takes the time to say hello and chitchat. The drink after dinner is a nice touch by Niko.
Absolutely great food. Best parmigiana ever! Highly recommended for any occasion
Always a great time and fabulous meal!
amazing as always, food is great, staff wonderful, Niko one of a kind. Reccommend to all friends and family
As always everything was perfect. Great food & friendly service. Important to make reservations as they are often fully booked. This is my favorite neighbourhood restaurant.
Nice and quaint neighborhood restaurant that has consistent food and service.
Daughter in-law dinner
Tiny location gives intimate vibe, but it’s a lively atmosphere. Traditional Italian fare with all the usual rich sauces and spices but portions are not overwhelming. The caprese salad was excellent and plenty for two. The pollo papardelle was rich and flavourful. I’d definitely go again.
Nikos is absolutely incredible. This is not a quick bite to eat kinda place. Set aside your time and come here to enjoy the meal as a special event itself. Food is incredible. From appetizer to dessert you won't be disappointed. Side note: We would love to see Buffalo Mozzarella on the menu! The food was so great that I forgot to take photos until we got dessert.
This is our favourite place to dine on special occasions! The food is so good here - I always order pasta because it is the BEST here :) The atmosphere is cozy and romantic. So happy that this gem is located here in Calgary.. Highly recommend!
I have been going to Nikkos for over 12 years and I have never been disappointed with the food, people or place. It is a real gem.
Always a great ambiance. Friendly staff, good drinks and great food!!!
Chef gives excellent service and is very charismatic
Like being in Italy. Fond memories of great food and friendly people serving you. Love Niko's!
Always top quality food in this neighborhood gem. I find the vino is well priced.
Very well-executed Italian food, great service and good wine.
Excellent food. The calamari is outstanding. You are made to feel very comfortable and cared for.
Niko's never disappoints! We can always count on excellent food served in a professional, but friendly manner.
It’s always a treat to eat at Nikos. Pleasant staff and outstanding food
Food as always was great. Very consistent, best calamari in the city.
Very tasty pork belly special
I love the ambiance , cozy but lively, food is consistently good. Nice to see the owner is hands on and most times greets the guests.
We’ve been to Niko’s on a number of occasions. We’ve always enjoyed the food and this visit was no exception. The only downside to our visit this time out was that the service was very slow as the restaurant was very busy with a number of tables arriving at the same time. We’re not sure if Niko’s also supports take out or a service like Skip the Dishes which may also slow service in the restaurant. Our server was pleasant and apologized for the delays. We’ll go again as we enjoyed our meals but perhaps would go earlier.
Love Niko’s! Amazing food every time we go!
Overall we enjoyed our experience at Niko's.
The restaurant was fairly busy, later we learned that most of the guests were going to the Theatre so they had a time line. We, however, had not plans other than enjoy a nice relaxing dinner.
At no time did our waitress asked us if we were going to the theatre. We ordered a bottle of wine and right away we felt like the waitress was rushing us to take our order.
Once the theatre crowd left, the restaurant was not at all busy, not sure why the waitress was rushing us other than maybe she herself wanted to leave early? I say that because it was someone else that took care of our bill.
