Finally, a One Off Hospitality Group restaurant exists in the Gold Coast. From the minute I called on the phone for a reservation to the minute you get your coat on the way out the door, everything at Nico is perfection. The bar scene is fun with great cocktails. Although the food never misses, the service is the real standout here. Friendly, accommodating and spot on. The olive focaccia is so crispy and perfectly flavored with olive oil. The pastas are all house made. The squid ink pasta is a unique presentation,with bread crumbs, mint and anchovies. Amanda Rockman's dessert menu is bright with flavor. She recommended a Affogato with apricot sorbet, burnt honey gelato and prosecco, that she aptly described as a "girl's best friend." I love my new neighborhood spot.
