A hidden gem of a restaurant sits on Owensboro’s busiest road, Niko’s Italian Cuisine, started by a husband and a wife who moved to Owensboro almost 20 years ago and started this business from the ground up. “From the time we’re here, we were here, in the restaurant, days and nights," said Lola Nousiadis, co-owner of Niko's.
