Do not order the seafood linguine. Having been raised in Northbeach , San Francisco, and enjoyed Italian cuisine up and down California ( Los Angeles, San Diego etc..) I have never had anything quite like this. The sauce was actualy sour, the seafood so overcooked it was rubbery, and the shrimp not only old, but hard, pencil eraser hard.
It was embarrassing for myself but also for my companion. This dish should not have been served to the public.
Maybe we caught the cook on a bad day, but you've been warned!

We discovered Nikki C's about 1 1/2 yrs ago. The food is awesome. I've never had to wait more than a few minutes for a table. Service is fast and friendly. It's casual enough for a fast dinner and eligant enough for a romantic first date.They only have about 11 tables in the dining area and 3 more booths in the bar plus seating at the bar. It's very quiet and quaint . They do have a few T.V.s in the bar area for people who like sports but they aren't overwhelming and doesn't have that "bar" feeling at all. Although I have seen kids there a few times, it's not a restaurant I would take my kids to. It's geared towards adults, couples....
We just moved to Orange County and still drive up to Pasadena just to go to Nikki C's!!!. I can't say enough....

Editorial from

A true neighborhood tavern, Nikki C's attracts a lively crowd at the bar, while the dining room on the other side of a divider draws largely an older crowd. The intimate, dimly lit space, scattered with some thoroughbred racing memorabilia…
