Good Italian cuisine . And service great. However , I usually split the bill with my friend.. When I checked my credit card transactions I was charged the full amount of the lunch and my Friend was billed half of the tab. I went back and spoke with Joe? , the manager . Took the information and will get back to me. A week had passed , no call , zero response . I went back asked for him second time, he was in a meeting . Easy for me to dispute via my Visa creditor .No probing question and will delete the transaction. I would like for Nico management to correct this as this is disgusting and bad practice to overcharge customers.
I have been to this restaurant on multiple occasions before & the service was fantastic. Made reservations for a bachelorette party- the hostess was incredible acknowledging the party. After being seated I was appalled on the attitude of our server Brigette. When asked to order drinks, she walked away in the middle of our table ordering. Additionally she did not answer any questions in regards to the menu. She never acknowledged the party and never returned to see if we would need a refill on drinks or if we enjoyed the food. Truly disappointed and would never recommend this place to be something to celebrate based on the poor service from our server. Food was always as standard but a poor server leaves a bad taste.
I recently saw Nico Osteria on "The Best Thing I Ever Ate," so upon a weekend trip to Chicago- I had to go. The restaurant ambiance was great- great noise level. I enjoyed the seating as it had a nice view of the open kitchen. For appetizers we had the octopus and the meatballs, in addition to the fresh bread. We were brought three types of bread- which were piping hot. They were delicious. Personally the olive bread was a little salty for my taste The octopus was delicious- a good combination of salty and spicy- the sausage added in was a nice touch. The meatballs were DELICOUS- my favorite part of the meal. They were succulent, juicy, salty, and the tomato sauce was just delightful. For dinner, my party of three shared the lobster amatricana and the king crab cioppino. The lobster amatricana was featured on "The best thing I ever ate." It was delicious, however I was hoping for more lobster. I really enjoyed the sauce . The king crab cioppino also came with an assortment of other seafood like mussels and cod fish. It was delicious but a little rich for my tastes- I recommend sharing
