After reading on TripAdvisor I decided to visit this Italian restaurant, because I love to eat and compare different Italian restaurants. I was not very impressed. No fresh made Pasta at all....all prefabricated. I decided anyway the Tagliatelle with Lobster and Shrimp Carbonara for around $30. Yes there where only one (1) Shrimp and a Lobster. Pasta was cooked Al... More

Located in area near medical clinics this building shared proerty with a medical lab. Kind of strange but it was a very pleasant setting. Service was very good and the selection of Italian fare was excellent. Full bar service. Expect to pay about $20 per meal which includes salad and bread.

Love to come here. Atmosphere very relaxed. Great food. I really like the Tabasco chicken. Kind of spicy but delicious. One of our favorite places to dine. The servers are outstanding and welcoming.

Seafood is the freshest you can get anywhere around here. Marsala dishes are amazing. Each dish has it's own unique twist to make it better than expected. Service is always friendly and they really make you feel like family when you're there.

Anything I have colleagues in town on business, I bring them to Nikos. The food and atmosphere are great. I just hope that now that Niko has passed, the food will continue to be spot on.

First the good - The staff was attentive, friendly and courteous. The menu was a bit limited. I selected the chicken parmigiana which was tasty. My complaints are : the size of my one,single chicken breast for the parm was miniscule, the place is noisy, and, overall, I think the prices are way too high by about $2-$4.. Maybe the... More

I will start out saying I ate lunch there last week the Carbonara was excellent and so was the service as well.. I went back tonight and was very disappointed. The service was lackluster at best. There was only one other table occupied when I came in. My dinner companion came in shortly afterward. When I was seated 2 menus... More

Niko's consistently provides exceptional service. The staff is friendly and really knows the menu. They care deeply that you have a wonderful experience and check on you throughout the menu. Make no mistake, this is a true family restaurant - they are independently owned and care that each guest feels cared for and satisfied. The menu has fewer choices than... More
