Ordered from the Monday night prix fixe menu. I had the chiopino and my wife had the sole. Both were delicious. This is a very popular local restaurant.

I have visited Nikki C's on many occasions and this is a great local gem with great food, drinks and atmosphere. You might have to wait a few for a table on a busy evening but it is always worth waiting !!!

Once more we were in great company, so the food becomes less important whilst the wine becomes more important. John and Tina, we salute you and congratulate you on your sons. And our evening in Nikki's was good as we were with you. The food was fine. The service good and efficient and fast. And the wine good.

The food is pretty good but the portions are small. The restaurant is a bit on the pricey side. I would eat there again but it's definitely not my first choice.

While there are our some restaurants on busy Rosemead Boulevard in East Pasadena, they tend to be of the fast food variety. But in addition to Taco Bell, El Pollo Loco, etc. and nestled between a dental office and paint store (!), is Nikki C's. The Italian items on the menu have to be from family recipes because there is... More

I frequent this establishment which has great food, full bar with friendly bartenders and dark cool atmosphere. The food service can sometimes be slow at lunchtime and parking is limited. Overall worth the trip.

As this was our first experience at this restaurant, we were heavily relying on reviews from others and we were happy to find out that the plethora of excellent reviews were valid. Arriving at our appointed time, our table was ready and we were seated promptly. Although this bar/grill is a little on the dark side (that is, low light),... More

I'm a regular so I'm probably biased, but this place is great. The food and service have always been great. I've had dinner and the Sunday Brunch. The Sunday brunch is great with mimosas and bloody marys.

We tried this restaurant for dinner for the first time after living in the area for a few years. Glad we finally made it in. The service was good, the food above average and the value for the meal was very good. Although, during our visit, there was one patron wearing shorts and sandals it is a place where you... More
