Niko’s is perfect for sharing wine, stories and food with friends and family. The atmosphere is always lively and full of excitement!
Please note that all reservations 6:00pm and earlier are welcome to dine until 7:30pm, as our second seating begins at that time.
We were there early so it wasnt noisy or crowded which is nice. Service and food were both good.
this was a very good experience. Not too busy so noise levels were good with staff regulating background music which was much appreciated. Choice of music a bit bizarre at times. Why not have some nice Italian classical music in the background instead of 'pop' stuff? But all in all was not bad. Food and service very good as expected
Niko's is one of our go-to favourite restaurants. Never a bad time!
Amazing as always
All was good except to learn that the restaurant doesn’t read the note I included on the OpenTable reservation about wanting a more private table until we arrived. Even so they did they’re best to accommodate us.
Outstanding place for dinner
Great food and great staff
First visit to Niko’s on a Friday night. Definitely glad we had reservations as the place was full. Service was excellent and all meals ordered by the group were tasty. Would certainly recommend to others and I am sure we’ll be back.
Amazing flavor, quality ingredients, friendly and efficient service. The owner/chef really takes pride in his work.
Niko and his team are outstanding in customer service and creating a dining experience that’s very enjoyable! The menu is sooo delicious. Been a loyal customer for 10 years! Cheers to many more fun times at Niko’s!
This was our first time at Niko's. We were there to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. The staff were so friendly and attentive. Atmosphere was lovely and the food was delicious. A great experience from start to finish. We will definitely be back.
The staff was informative about the menu and daily special. The service was prompt and attentive. The food was delicious.
Daughters 21st Birthday
I can't wait to go back again. We were in a rush and we explained that and they were very fast with our food.
Love this place! Calamari and bruschetta are a must have and the specials are always great as well.
Good food, rather noisy.
Meal was outstanding but the room temperature was extremely hot making it uncomfortable. Wine menu extremely limited. They only list region, not the exact wine which made selection harder.
Amazing food as always, consistency makes a great restaurant. Nikos is one of our favourite places to go for a great time.
Nice place with an old fashioned bistro feel. The food is amazing! Will Definitely be back.
I absolutely love and adore Niko’s. He is such a lovely human who constantly greets his guests and makes them feel welcome. I have been coming here since I’ve moved to Calgary a year ago and each time is consistent with outstanding service, food and ambiance!!! 10/10 recommend. The frutti di mare is my absolute favourite!!!
Great food and better service.
Very nice family restaurant and the service was exceptional. Niko actually came by twice to ask us how everything was. They treated us great. The food was good and the service was great. We’ll be back.
We've eaten at Niko's several times since it opened years ago. This lunch visit was not up to the standard of previous visits. I had cannelloni that was basically a couple of crepes wrapped around some meat filling with sauce and cheese, not what I was expecting. The taste was OK but rather anonymous flavour-wise. My companion and bruschetta and soup, which today was stracciatella. The bruschetta was not toasted crisp as in most versions and the tomato salsa was bland with no discernible basil shreds for flavour. The stracciatella was also rather bland and not a dish we would order again.
My wife had a thick black hair in her food. We could see into the kitchen and found that the chef/cook was not wearing a hat or a hair net. They did apologize re prepared her order and did not charge for it. Still leaves a bad impression.
Great place for a get together with friends and family. The veal scaloppini ( Vitello Pascatore) in a rose sauce is simply delicious ! Highly recommended!
Great service, lovely little bistro! Food was excellent both times we've visited. Make sure you have a reservation, but haven't had trouble getting in for the 7:30 seating.
We went to Nikos to celebrate our anniversary. We live in the neighbourhood so it’s one of our favourites! Niko always comes by to say hi and to make sure everything is to our liking. The food is fantastic and a great value. We always say we should go more often!
Meal was delicious. We all ordered something different and everyone was satisfied with their choices. We will definitely be back.
Great food and wonderful service as always looking forward to our next visit.
We love Nikos! I tried a shrimp dish which was great and the bananas flambé dessert was fabulous. We also really enjoy that they can accommodate gluten and dairy intolerances. 💕
We had the Calamari and Sambuca Prawns to start which was very yummy. We had Ivana bring us a surprise selection of three main courses to share for our table of 4. One of the selections was their special with Pork Belly/Pasta/vegetables. All three items we delicious and we enjoyed them with some Zenato Ripassa Valpolicella. We enjoyed Tiramisu as our desert. We always enjoy dining at Nikos. The food and service is always exceptional here.
Bruschetta, calamari are outstanding
I tried a new dish Pollo papperdalla and really enjoyed it
Thanks Niko and outstanding staff
Outstanding food - full of flavour, and generous portions, the bruschetta is amazing. Our server was attentive and gave some wonderful recommendations.
Great dinner out with the family. It was a quiet night there on a Sunday but the food and service were great.
I am celiac and had the absolute best meal. I ordered the beef tenderloin with a side of GF pasta. It was cooked perfectly and so flavorful; probably the BEST meal I have ever eaten. Staff were very friendly and accommodating and even remembered the note I put in on our open table reservation. We don’t live in YYC, but will go back next time we are in Calgary.
Delicious as always! Wonderful staff as well. Easily our favourite Italian restaurant.
Amazing as always
Excellent food, service, even the chef came to say hi. They must’ve heard that we were having anniversary dinner, and they gave us a shot for me and my husband (cranberry shot for me because I’m
Notoriously pregnant) so it was a nice detail from them! Definitely we will be back.
And it’s not a fast food place.... you can tell they make everything. Very good!!!
Excellent food and very friendly staff! My girlfriend forgot her purse and they called me to let me know. Will definitely be going back soon!
Cosy venue, awesome food. Family style meal is a great value and great way to experience the true essence of the menu! Second time here, both times were excellent!
