For some of the most authentic Greek food and culture in Auckland, Nicolino Restaurant is a Devonport restaurant that delivers. Thursday nights are for live music, dancing and plate-smashing. It's one of the only restaurants in Auckland to offer up this unique Greek experience and their moussaka is so traditional and delicious, I've travelled across the Bridge to the North Shore for this Greek food many times. Highly recommend!

Thursday nights are Greek night - noisy, fun and authentic. Love it!

My first time at a Greek restaurant and I must say I loved it. We went on a thursday - the live music night, and while it is very entertaining, and was perfect for the group I was with, I would recommend somewhere else if you're wanting an intimate thursday date night. They even got some people up dancing which was fun to watch. I had the Catalan Duck and it was seriously good - nearly to die for good. Honestly, if I was at home, I would have licked the bowl clean of its sauce - it was THAT good. Wasn't so impressed by the baklava though - but then again it probably wasn't the smartest thing to have after my main. The establishment has a great vibe to it, and I loved looking at all the signatures the have on their bricks, which just adds to the character of the place. All in all, 4 stars - I think that it would be 5 if I'd gone on another night and not had the baklava, so maybe I'll just have to give it another try sometime :D

If you go here for the first time check out their pizza menu. Highly recommended. I love their pizzas so much that I have never bothered to try anything else on the menu.

Always a lovely place to eat, and I recommend the vegetarian lasagna. Super yummy!

Since opening 9 years ago, Nicolino Restaurant has become a popular Devonport establishment and destination. 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.   The menu provides a large selection of authentic Mediterranean cuisine, featuring especially dishes from Greece and Italy. There is something for everyone to  enjoy An evening at Nicolino Restaurant is like being transported to another world for a few relaxing hours. On the ever popular Thursday nights which are Greek Nights you will find the resident band Greek Nights performing its lively brand of authentic Greek music, Thursdays are special evenings that bring together wonderful music, dancing, ouzo and entertainment.  If you have a fantasy about dancing the Zorba and breaking plates, this is the place to be on a Thursday night!
