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 no other explanation for the quality. The local Arcadia horse racing crowd tends to hang out here but if you are not put off by equine-oriented talk, or pick up a good betting tip by listening close to what is being said, that is a plus. The bar is small but is a good place for a solo lunch if there is space. Service can be a little uneven with a little rudeness/sarcasm from time to time, but if they are trying to replicate a real Italian household, well that is pretty authentic. The Osso Buco is legit!
