Description: An evening at Nicolino Restaurant & Cube Bar on the North Shore is like being transported to another world for a few relaxing hours. Since opening 13 years ago, Nicolino Restaurant & Cube Bar has become a popular establishment and destination for delicious, authentic Mediterranean cuisine. It provides a "taste of Greece and the Mediterranean" in every sense of the word: the food, the beverages, the atmosphere, the entertainment and the relaxed, informal but attentive service that is characteristic of Greece and the Mediterranean.

Ok, I have to confess, I am a lover of all things Corelli's - which is #2 in Devonport, but after exhausting the menu there (after 3 years mind you) it was time for a change...we have tried several others but they don't ever come close, but, tonight we were wowed by Nicolino's! Lovely food with delicious flavours. Our teenage son who is 6'4 and has hollow legs couldn't finish his meal - for the first time in his life! In his words - "this is our new Corelli's mum"! We had the Spanakopita, Moussaka and Spaghetti Carbonara, followed by the mud cake and of course - the baklava! We will be BACK! Food = fantastic, Service = Superb! Thank you Nicolino's.

Nicolino in Devonport is certainly worth a visit or more. We have come here foy many years and we always enjoyed great middle-eastern and greek food. They serve real Retsina as well. The portions are large and you won't be able to finish if you had a big starter such as the Greek Mixed Platter.

Had been looking for an authentic Greek restaurant for some time and found this charming rustic place nestled on Devenports main street. A friend and I dined on a Wednesday night Pretty quiet in Devenport. Very pleasant waitress who seated us promtply. I had the Halloumi cheese which was served with a salad and a tasty vinaigrette. Followed this with Moussaka.It was made without the white sauce on top but was quite tasty and again served with a salad. My friend had the Biftekia enetree and the Catalan duck which he enjoyed very much. We shared a bottle of Greek wine which at $40 was inferior to most of the local vintages at that price range. The decor was adequate although the caps on the wall seemed a little out of place. The waitress was attentive at all times and very helpful. Can't help thinking the ambience would have been greatly improved by some Greek music but alas nothing. I feel sure they would do much better with some background music in keeping with the establishment. Am told plate smashing night is Thursday but will leave that review to the more risque. Went for a walk after dinner and all the other restaurants were virtually empty. Just lacked that ambience primarily casued by the restaurant not being full and no music. Was surprised how quiet the street was at 9.15 after we left.

Ate in this restaurant after a day exploring Devonport, we started with the dolmades, which were amazing! So good that my partner finished all the sauce with his fork. We followed that with the pumpkin gnocchi and the mousaka , both meals were absolutely delicious, the portions were more than generous. We would absolutely make this a regular thing if we lived in the area.

Also, there is a rubber machine in the bathroom, in case your date goes well. It's very considerate.
