Food was absolutely delicious and fresh tasting! From the bread in the bruschetta to the pasta in the pasta dish! And the service was kind, prompt and attentive!

The waiter we had was not pleasant whatsoever. The food was very good but his service will most likely affect if we ever go back or recommend the place to anyone. He was very abrupt, and rude

One of my favourite restaurants in Calgary. Great value for extraordinarily delicious meals. I have yet to come across an “ok” meal and their chocolate mousse is a necessity. Happy that things are opening up a bit more so I can start to frequent this restaurant more open. The two people in my party had never been before and have now added it to their list of faves.

Been here multiple times and its been excellent each time. Warm and friendly service with great food. Highly recommend a reservation as its a small cozy spot which fills up quickly (all tables were full at 7pm on a Tuesday!). Perfect for a date night, or a family dinner out.

Nikos is a great family owned restaurant. It was quite busy with a good amount of energy that made it a fun evening celebrating our anniversary. The service was just the right balance of attention and privacy. The food was spot on!
