Thanks so much to Niko’s for a great Birthday dinner for my good friend! As always the food was top notch, the service was excellent and everyone enjoyed themselves immensely!
This is our go to date spot and it never disappoints. We have never had a bad meal here and we have tried most of the appies and the mains. We love the bruschetta and calamari appies. My main go to is the veal in a tomoato sauce with gnocchi and my wifes go to is the pasta. Keep up the amazing food and service!
My friend could not stop raving over the cannelloni sauce. Both our meals were great. We’ll be back!
Excellent meal as expected. Can’t believe it’s been so long since we came back to Niko’s. One of my favourite spots in Kensington.
The food and service was excellent as usual!
My husband and I came for dinner on April 1sts for our wedding anniversary the service was outstanding due to COVID-19 we have not been out for almost 10 months, the food was really do you delicious and not to mention the really good service given by Samantha and Victoria they took great care of us,we will be back for sure
COVID has played huge impact here.
Less atmosphere caused by separation glass. Abrupt service, also the result of COVID (fewer staff).
Good menu and drink.
Overall, the charges are high and pre-COVID.
VFM has suffered; used to visit 5-6x per year. Now based on this experience, will not return until VFM, atmosphere and service improves.
This place is without a doubt a gem! Niko takes pride in his establishment and you can tell by his food and service. Get the calamari and carbonara.
One of our favourite places to go. Always a very pleasant experience.
Always 5 starts! This is my favorite restaurant in Calgary hands down!

Niko and his staff were friendly and made it a great evening out. Right from the first greeting to the end of the meal. Food and atmosphere were excellent.
This was our first visit and it won’t be the last. The food was amazing! We started with bruschetta and calamari and had manicotti, chicken parmigiana, and the special for the mains. Everything was so delicious! Great service as well!
It is always a great time when we go there for dinner. Delicious and entertaining.

This place is always top notch. The food is incredible and the service is perfect. This is our go to date night. We will keep coming back again and again.
This was a birthday/valentines lunch. We had their calamari, which is the best. They also make it gluten free and most things can be gluten free on their menu. We had the pizzolla cod, which was also delicious. Service is always outstanding and Niko always comes by and checks on everyone’s meal. It’s a very personable experience.
The best Italian comfort food in calgary. I’ve been to Niko’s dozens of times and I’m consistently impressed!
Great little gem. Staff are always friendly and food is excellent.
Always glad to go to NIKOS, felt completely safe and they take care of anything you need. Glad to see they are still open in this climate and welcoming guests back to good food and good people.
One of our favorite restaurants in the Kensington area, we booked our table as soon as Covid restrictions were relaxed to allow indoor dining. Great food and friendly family like service.
