We had the cannelloni, pene with pancetta and mushrooms -both pasta meals were tasty but the portion could have been slightly larger. However it did give us the opportunity to have the apple strudel which was absolute perfection -highly recommend this dessert. Prices were quite good. Wish they would have had a beer on tap - maybe Peroni.

It was a hidden secret to me as we don’t go to Kensington very often. Will be going again.

Nice atmosphere, good food and service. Minor criticism is that Caesar Salad not as favourable it could have been and no bread.

This is a very small restaurant located in Kensington so reservations are highly recommended.

Favorites were the calamari and bruschetta. The penne arabiatta and gnocchi were also quite good.

Great service and fair prices. We would certainly visit Nikos again if we wanted pasta. Personally, I would probably stick to calamari, bruschetta and caprese salad.

The restaurant may be small, but the atmosphere and food are big time. Our party of 6 shared bruschetta, eggplant, mussels and calamari to start. While all four were excellent, the calamari was exceptional. Highly recommend this uniquely prepared version.

Everyone ordered a different entree, and no one was disappointed. The wine selection is good, and the Creme Caramel and Tiramisu a perfect ending to this evening.
