Downtown Gilbert’s first upscale, chef-driven restaurant, Nico offers West Coast-inspired seasonal Italian cuisine from James Beard-nominated Chef and local culinary legend Gio Osso.
Gio isn’t just the brains and talent behind Nico, however – he’s also a close neighbor, meaning he’ll be onsite every day handling everything from hand-rolling pastas to selecting fresh produce to feature in his heirloom family recipes. Stop in for dinner seven days a week for a taste of Nico’s signature dishes, unmatched wine list and classically tailored ambiance.
Named for Chef and Owner Gio Osso’s own first-born son, Nico is a true family and neighborhood affair. Located only minutes from Gio’s own home, the chef’s close proximity to the restaurant is evident in every West Coast seasonal Italian-inspired dish that exits Nico’s kitchen.
From rolling his own handmade pastas onsite every day to hand-selecting local ingredients to feature in his signature heirloom family recipes, Nico has fast become Gio’s unofficial home away from home. And with a revolving array of fresh, seasonal dishes, an astounding number of by-the-glass wine offerings and an unforgettable ambiance highlighted by an open, showpiece kitchen where guests can watch Gio and his team in action, Nico is honored to give Gilbert its first truly unique and inspired culinary point of pride.
Come in for a comfortable after-work happy hour or enjoy a more upscale atmosphere after the suns goes down, but stop by Nico for Gio’s signature recipes, a drink list that leaves little to be desired and an unforgettable culinary experience unlike anything Downtown Gilbert has ever seen.
