The atmosphere of this restaurant was great. I absolutely love Italian food and found their food delicious. The service was fantastic minus we had to ask the server three different times for a straw because he kept forgetting. I didn't ding the review too much for that because it was super busy when we ate here.
I had the shrimp diavolo and my wife had the Tilapia and linguini. The waiter was pleasant and described the restaurant and serving style. I was very pleased with the taste and and quality of the food. If I had one one thing that could have been better and it's such a minor issue. The bread could have been warm. The pasta was fantastic, the shrimp were very tasty. No wonder it's hard to get in without a wait.
Whenever we are in Manhattan, we almost make sure to go to Nico's. Best Italian in town and served family style. Great value and great food. Our server was Kendall, he was really friendly & provided fantastic service.
This would be another first time for me, going to this restaurant I mean. I got my food to go but just to describe the inside of the restaurant, it’s quite cozy and pleasant. Unfortunately, something went wrong with my online order so by the time I arrived I had to wait a little but, but it wasn’t long at all. The women who took care of me was very accommodating and delightful and got me my order right away. I came maybe an hour into the restaurant opening for the day so there wasn’t a lot of people there to begin with but waiting for my order you can see people slowly start pouring in, so this is a popular place to eat. I ordered the linguine chicken pesto, and it was hot and enjoyable, I also ordered the calamari strips which kind of felt like the breading of was a bit overcooked, but it was still edible and the flavor decent. On my next visit through town, I would not mind coming in again, they have a bunch of pastas I want to try and I’ve heard good things about their fried ravioli appetizer, something to look forward to!
Great place for Italian food. Good choices of pasta options. Definitely would be coming back. The only thing that is not convenient is the parking, but it is because it is downtown area.
It all starts with the staff and welcome. I believe she was the manager, stepping in to help the busy server. She did a fantastic job.
Of course the food was good too! 🍷
Big City quality Italian food in a smaller college town!
Dishes are fresh prepared and pasta is cooked perfectly. We were really impressed with the quality of the food and the prices.
We had the pesto linguine, chicken parmigiana, lasagna, and a chop salad. All were spot on and we have eaten Italian from Rome, Italy to NYC……
Cannot go wrong here.
I'm currently in a medical facility and was craving some toasted ravioli. A quick Google search showed me Nico's Little Italy. All I can say is WOW!! The food was fantastic, the portions were freaking huge, but the kicker was my delivery driver.
She followed my directions to the letter, but in addition she called and left a message confirming she had dropped it off and asked me to call back. I contacted her and she confirmed again everything and then thanked me for calling!
I can't say how much I enjoyed the food, or how happy I am with their level of professionalism and empathy. They are definitely my go-to place for Italian!
Most importantly, the food here is absolutely amazing 100% fantastic! Slightly less important, though, is the quality of service. The entire wait staff was moving at light speed yet somehow seemed to take time and individually get to know each table. Our weight was double what they said it would be, but one of the managers came over and comped us for an appetizer and a dessert. She totally didn't have to, but it was much appreciated. The only negative thing was that the restaurant was a bit warm.
Great service, great atmosphere. Food is good, but not great. Still as close to good Italian food as you will get in Manhattan, KS. Definitely recommended though! Portions are large, and you will definitely enjoy your experience.
Staff was nice and our waitress Sarah was attentive. First time here and it was a woderful experience. I highly recommend this place over olive garden. Amazing taste, more personalized, and a new experience all for a similar price.
Not bad, not great. On par with Olive garden for an Italian restaurant. The meatballs, salmon, and stuffed mushroom appetizer are all great and I recommend going there if those are things you like to support a small-time business, but calamari was breaded too heavily. I like their marinara sauce but the reduced sauce for the spicy Shrimp Diavolo was disappointing.
We had our dinner delivered. It was delivered in 30 minutes, as expected and was good. We did have to rewarm it, but that didn't surprise us since we're about a 15 minute drive away and we ordered a pasta dish versus a baked dish. Driver was great too. We would recommend and order again!
Very good, as always! Fantastic date night or family meal destination. We frequent the restaurant.
When ordering delivery we got the right amount for 10 people with a family lasagna, a half spaghetti bolognese plus one family chopped salad, and two orders of toasted ravioli. I suggest asking for extra bread as that's the only thing we were short on. Delivery was fast and food was hot. Perfect last-minute meal with visiting family.
Wonderful service! They had the order ready when I walked in the door, helped me carry out my order to my car. The food was outstanding! Everyone loved it!
First time visiting and wow. The staff was supper friendly and the waitress really awesome!! The food was cooked perfectly and the taste was perfect. Its been a long time that i have ever had a good Italian meal.
I had a wonderful experience at Nico's Little Italy! Our server, Alison D, was super funny, knowledgeable and polite! (We were the "milk" group if she's reading this.) I got a coffee, which was surprisingly good for restaurant coffee. When the food came out after only about twenty minutes, it was great! It was both well-portioned and flavorful. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!
Every experience both in person and when ordering to go has been fantastic. The food is always delicious and the customer service is always top notch. Absolutely it is worth a trip!
We loved to eat in this cozy place. Great employees and wonderful service. It doesn't matter if its to go or at the restaurant. Keep up the amazing service and wish you a wonderful business year!
Awesome food and a great atmosphere. The bar tenders and waiters are awesome. Every dish on the menu is excellent, and you can tell that a lot of time has been put into the recipes.
We had a very friendly waitress, thank You Abby!
We had the Appetizer Sampler, oh my, so good! The only thing I didn't quiet like was, that the Bruschetta Bread was totally soaked through. The portions are huge! And the prizes are reasonable.
We’ve gone a few times now and it’s out favorite place to go out with family and friends. The portions are very generous the food is always great And THE SERVICE IS AMAZING. We have taken big groups with several disabilities and all we’re welcomed and accommodated without hesitation. Our favorite server is Anthony the manager whose name I can’t remember Travis I think? Seems to always be around and has always been happy to check in on us let us know if there was a delay or just say hi. The owner Has been there a few times when we were working in the back and helping her team which is so refreshing to hear. We’ve also never been rushed to leave they are happy to let us sit eat and enjoy our time with friends and family without the usual dropping off the check and never checking on you again. Absolutely will always recommend nicos but do yourself a favor take a group the family style is a great deal!
Excellent! Our orders were delivered at the scheduled time, with hot foods hot and cold foods cold, by a friendly courier.
Everyone loved their food. All dishes were prepared exactly as ordered, of generous portions, and deliciously seasoned. We were a party of 9, and we each give you ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This place was so delicious
Our server was amazing and friendly
The food was quick and amazing it’s seasoned to perfection! And not bad pricing!!! I got the 1/4 option and so did hubby and we got super full!! We will be back!!!
Went in for a early dinner around 5pm. It had a very nice quiet atmosphere. The food was delicious and the wait time was around 10-15 minutes. The manger was especially attentive which made for a great experience. PS- try the cheesecake!
We absolutely love this place. The food and service are always great! You definitely get your money's worth.
Great food. Friendly service. Men's restroom could use a little work. Loose toilet seat. Flush lever loose. Space heater should be moved away from urinal. Paper towels would be nice.
Fantastic experience! My husband, son, and I were all in town and wanted some quality Italian. Nico's definitely delivered. The food was super good without being heavy and very well priced. The portions were great as well and the staff was very attentive. My husband said it's the best service he's had in quite a while! I also really appreciated that my son (who got something from the kids menu) actually got real food too, just a smaller version of an adult meal.
My family and I are visiting from Pennsylvania. We had dinner at Nico's last night and absolutely loved it! The staff was pleasant and the food was amazing. We ordered the family style buffet and had more than enough to eat. When they ran out of lasagna, they offered us an alternative at no extra cost. We will definitely head over to Nico's the next time we are in town.
Had a wonderful meal in this cozy atmosphere. Sam waited on us and did a wonderful job, thank you Sam! All the employees are wonderful and the food is delicious. You won't be disappointed.
I went here on a whim with a few friends and it was incredible! The food, service, and ambiance were top notch. Our waitress was wonderful — attentive, knowledgeable, and polite. After graduating from k-state, It was the perfect last meal in Manhattan. I’ll definitely be back when I’m in Manhattan next!
First time dining in and it was fantastic. Our waiter Anthony was professional and efficient by explaining the menu and providing quality suggestions when asked. The setting was nice and all the staff worked well as team. Ordered the Caesar salad, 2 entrees and a dessert which were all great, although I could personally go with less dressing on the salad. Amazing taste though. Overall will definitely be back to try other menu options. They even put a sparkler in your dessert for your birthday which is cool.
Excellent atmosphere and the food is great too! Beth did an outstanding job at making sure our entire visit was spectacular. She was wonderfully attentive and very informative of all the menu items. She helped us make great choices on our dishes and we left extremely satisfied! We will be visiting again!
The food was pretty good, as well as the prices. I love that they have a "family style" option. The service was friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was pleasant. My husband and I had a nice time, appetizer, glass of wine, and two entrees all for about $45 before tip.
This place has fantastic dishes at an incredible price, and the cocktails here are amazing. They also have a good selection of beer on tap. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a nice night or that isn't going to hurt their wallet
Wife and I went there this past Saturday with our son, heard great things about it from numerous friends. Food: very good, flavorful, 1/4 plates are plenty of food for 1 (my son couldn't finish his food, neither did my wife), Chicken Parm is fantastic, and try the Baked Ravioli's for an appetizer with the house dressing, they Rock! Service: our waiter was REALLY good, attentive, offered suggestions as a first time visitor, our drinks were never empty. Manager came and checked on us too, and the place was packed. Overall: great food, great service, great value as it's not an overpriced restaurant at all. Will definitely go back when in town!!!! Highly recommend!!
Ordered the half order spaghetti with marinara and one meatball and a half order of the vodka shrimp and shells for my two daughters and I. Portions were huge for the price! We all ate way too much and still have leftovers!!!
Highly recommend!! I ordered to go using their website, it was super easy to do.
Staff was friendly when I arrived for pick-up, gave me disposable plates and silverware as well.
Definitely going to become a regular in our rotation.
We ordered pickup and it was ready in 15 minutes! The service was great. The food delicious and hot! We will definitely order again! Oh, and we had a special dessert in our bag that we didn’t order! I hope it was just a surprise for us and that no one else’s order was missing it! It was amazing!
This place is great! It's a cozy, funky little spot with amazing food and super great staff! I got the shrimp and scallop pasta and it was amazing! The shrimp and scallops were cooked perfectly and the sauce was DELICIOUS! My daughter got the shrimp in the spicy marinara with pasta. DELICIOUS!! The service was superb! Very friendly attentive staff. Will definitely eat here next time I'm in Manhattan!! The prices are super reasonable also!! Great job Nico's!!
Nico's was amazing! Our server Beth was great, her recommendations were spot on and we never had an empty glass. The quality of food is top notch with large portion sizes and the dessert menu is from a 5 Star dining experience in a large city. The one thing we did not experience was sticker shock with the bill. The price of our appetizer, drinks, two meals and two desserts was still less than we would of paid at a local chain restaurant. We will definitely be back!
Hi We picked up our order, for 2 people. The food was great, we should have ordered the 1/4th portion instead of the 1/2 portion.. We had lots of food left over that we have enjoyed. (we each ordered 1/2 portion) Pasta is always good the second or third day. Our order would feed a family of 4 easy. We will be back! Planning to have left overs!
The food was great! Nice serving sizes. Our waiter, Brock, was super attentive to our needs. Considering he was serving 9 of us, he got almost everything exactly right and did so timely. I didn't try everything we ordered at the table, but everything I sampled was top-notch! I appreciated the restaurant was clean. Not so much as a bread crumb on the floor. Nice job at Nico's!
I have been here a few times now. Once with my boyfriend, once solo, once with my best friend, and I've ordered carry out. Bar none, EXCELLENT service and food each time. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Environment is welcoming. Prices are SO affordable (I always take left overs and they taste great the next day). 10/10, highly recommend.
Everything about this place is wonderful. The service is some of the best I have had in Manhattan and I challenge you to find better food, let alone better Italian food anywhere close. There may be a bit of a wait during peak times but it is SO WORTH IT. Great portions, great prices, great food. Charlotte and Tanner were my servers (sat at the bar) and they were nothing short of perfect. Attentive when I needed without being overbearing, and very friendly and thoughtful. 10/10 will be eating here often!
First time we tried and it was awesome. Great food, great service. Four different people four different meals and everyone one of them good. I ordered a half size so i could take some home. Thanks guys we needed a great Italian diner in Manhattan.
From start to finish, the entire experience was absolutely perfect! We went fairly early because we were told there could be a wait. There was a wait but we sat at the bar and the drinks were fantastic! I cannot say enough about the service! From m the bar staff to our waiter, they were Super attentive, very knowledgeable, suggestive! They were wonderful!
Once we were seated at our table, the bread they brought out was fresh and warm! Fresh pepper, oil and balsamic vinaigrette to dip. I got the lasagna and my husband got the filet. Trust me, neither one disappointed! Since Harry’s closed, we had been looking for someplace in town that had great steaks, WE FOUND OUR NEW STEAK PLACE!!! Everything was cooked to perfection, the portions were right on, if not a little bit big. We loved the fact that there are three different sizes of entrees to choose from.
Could not have asked for a better experience all the way around. We WILL be back, most definitely!
The wait staff was exceptional. The portions were very generous. Pricing was on the low end for Manhattan, Ks. THE ONLY OPTION FOR GREAT ITALIAN FOOD LOCALLY. A must go.
Called in a takeout order and had a great experience! Food was ready quickly, it was packaged well, and was still fresh and hot when we got home. Quality, quality, quality. Loved the toasted ravioli appetizer, and the pastas we got were excellent. Flavors were outstanding!
Oh...and the portion sizes? Let's just say I've got lunch taken care of this week...
Glad to have you in town Nico's!
What a great addition to Aggieville! Food was amazing, especially the stuffed mushrooms and shrimp and scallop pasta. We sat at the bar and our bartender Peyton was wonderful and attentive!
Ordered online and picked up.Everything was packaged well and was still hot when we got home.
Sampler platter was great, the marinara was delicious.
Chicken parmigiana was awesome!
Only complaint was the salad was a little soggy...maybe pack the chopped tomatoes separately...?
Will definitely order again!!!
We have been anticipating the opening of Nico’s, finally had the chance to place a pickup order and they did not disappoint! The food was delicious, service was quick given they were overloaded and we will be getting our Italian food there for now on. If you haven’t gotten to try, I would definitely recommend!
Awesome service and great food. Portions were very generous. Desserts were awesome too. I'm happy Manhattan finally has a great Italian restaurant!
Nico's is a fantastic addition to Aggieville. The portions are very generous and very reasonably priced. I would say get there early because it's likely to fill up quickly after 5 pm. However, the hostess was nice enough to take your number down and call you when you table is ready so you can go walk around while you wait. The portions all come in 3 sizes. Small is enough for one person, medium for 2, and large is for a few people. The speghetti comes with soft ball sized meatballs and the meat is very very well flavored. They also have family sized meal options which is similar to a 5 course meal. Would be great for ordering and taking home for family dinner night. We got the linguine pesto and shells with alfredo. Both were very good. And yes you get bread when you sit down. Absolutely enjoyed my experience and would recommend to anyone. Decor is lovely.
Tried out this new spot the first week they were open and O.M.G. Service was great and food was excellent! Will be visiting again. So glad Manhattan has good Italian again!
Very friendly staff, nice ambiance, & generous portions. We went with the Light Family Style Meal that came with bread, an appetizer, salad, & 2 pastas. We decided on the Caesar salad & the toasted ravioli (both bottomless). For our pastas we went with the Rotini Carbonara & Lasagna. There was a mix up & we ended up with Chicken Carbonara, which they ended up giving to us "on the house". It ended up being our favorite of the 3. So glad the Little Apple has another Italian restaurant option now.
They're food is awesome. I got the mozzarella sticks and the shrimp diavolo and the chicken carbonara. It was absolutely delicious 😋😊
We ordered Nico's Little Italy for dinner last night, and it was amazing. I ordered the food about 5 for a 7:15 pickup. I got an email saying the order was processed, and arrived just a few minutes early. The service was great. They brought out the food hot and fresh, offer paper goods (plates, silverware...) and I was out the door. We ordered the appetizer sampler, and everything was great - ravioli, calamari, stuffed mushrooms,... it was all so good. I ordered the Sicilian Shrimp and Scallops and ny boyfriend ordered the Shrimp Diavolo. Both were amazing and the bread is oh so good. The Little Apple needed a great Italian place, and Nicolette brought us just that. We will be back!
Amazing service, food, and atmosphere! Highly recommend. Food price is reasonable as well.
Everyone enjoyed their food from here. Thanks.
It’s a great spot. I’m so glad we have a nice Italian place in Aggieville. The service was amazing. Food is great.

Food was spectacular! Service very nice and punctual. Overall a superb dining experience.
