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 have been to Niko’s many times and we have never been disappointed.
Great place for lunch! Amazing server, food and atmosphere! I will be back
Nikos is a tried and true restaurant! I have been many times since moving to Calgary and not once have I had a bad experience. The food is mouth watering and spectacular. It’s the closest to authentic Italian cuisine that I’ve found since living in Italy. Another beautiful touch is Niko comes out and greets all of his guests to make sure food and service was great. It is this level of hospitality that is very hard to beat. I definitely recommend 10/10. It is the hidden gem of Calgary!
Niko is an angel!!! Such a great night
Very good food, service and decor
Another amazing night of food , service and fun
This is a local favorite of ours. Love this place!
Great local Bistro - good food, reasonable price, nice ambience. What more do you need.
It’s always amazing there!
Amazing is the only way to describe. Thank you!!!!!!
Best lunch experience we've had in some time. All 4 in our party really liked what they had.
Wonderful restaurant and fabulous food!
Server was not very friendly! Only downside of our dining experience.
The food at this little restaurant is terrific. The calamari is a must try and the vodka penne was heaven. Our entrees we delectable. I ordered the veal and my date had the cannelloni. We will be back! I’d love to try all the dishes. :)
Great food, chef is outstanding!!! New server struggled a bit but overall an excellent bistro. Would recommend to all!
My favourite restaurant in Calgary, without question.
We have enjoyed coming over the past year. As we mentioned, at the restaurant , the Ceasar salad was extremely small. The main meal was fine.
When we booked the reservation we were aware there was a 2 hour “table limit” but did not expect to be rushed during that time. The service was not friendly and the wine glasses were cloudy. We asked for the worst one to be replaced but then we had to ask for another glass when our guests arrived. When given the “special” for the day, we were told there was 2 left and we were the 5:30 sitting! By the time we ordered there was one and then told .. no it was gone! After our main course was complete (items were removed from the table quickly every time we completed something even if someone else was still eating) we went to order dessert and tea but the waitress said you have a time limit! This was 6:45 and I replied we still had 45 minutes. We were reminded several times of the time limit, not enjoyable when your catching up with friends. This is not a cheap take away type restaurant, so we expected better service and ambiance. We have eaten here before and although not a warm environment the food made up for it. We will not return after this experience.
We go to Niko’s regularly and are never disappointed. The food is great and the service unsurpassed.
Food was very good and well presented. Portions were small, particularly Caesar salad for the price, dessert was only OK.
The food was delicious! Great quality and flavour. Service was a little lacking. The one waitress was not too friendly and did not smile. Took away from the atmosphere.
Great desserts too
Niko's is our very own neighborhood gem. Great ambiance, good service and the owner personally comes around and chat with everyone at the table. Very classy.
Unfortunately this was the second time we’ve had this server. I don’t usually say anything. The first time thought she was having a bad day, but her demeanour was same this time. Have been to this restaurant several times, but would not be happy if she was our server again!
On Monday Dec 3rd I was at Niko’s with my friend. I enjoyed my veal dish and the apple pie. The coffee, however, was extremely weak and tasteless.
Our waitress was efficient but not at all friendly. Generally one is asked if there is anything else before bringing the bill, which of course she did not. I can’t say I felt welcomed at Niko’s.
Great place for a special occasion. Food is really good.
Best Italian food I have ever had!!!
Dinner before the opera. Food was spectacular. Loved it all. Service was fab
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.
