    Depends on what you mean by nice, I suppose. And also too. Niceness is multidimensional, in terms of the types of behavior it would involve.

    too nice might also mean too forgiving or too lenient, too generous, or too indulgent. You do need to narrow it down where and under what circumstances you want to use the word.

As in ridiculously over optimistic or agreeable, to a degree that strays into parody.
