Manuel's menu is inspired and has original approaches to a number of its dishes. The generous portion of escargot I had there were superb. For those who like snails, this was a unique treat. They were delicious and the quantity enabled me to really explore their unique aroma and flavor. Sauces were another means to reveal the imagination of Manuel's... More

We've been there a bunch. Excellent food and always great service. Wish that I could single out one or two dishes, its just that they're all delicious.

You can't go wrong. It's pricey, but oh so worth every penny! You have to try the Pasta Purse appetizers. The Duck entree is absolutely amazing! The veggie sides are delish! The wine list is extensive. Wonderful atmosphere. Top notch servers. You will love it!

We go here for special occasions, after all it is pricey! The good thing is that the food is legit, true and authentic flavors. Love the chicken parmesan. What top our visit was meeting Manuel and having him tell us his life stories.

The food was good, but they need better ventilation I couldn't even enjoy the food because I could not breathe and when I left my clothes smelled.

My husband and I went for our anniversary and were greeted by owner Manuel who was charming. The wine list was more than adequate and reasonably priced. My husband ordered a pasta lamb specialty that he enjoyed. The grouper special that I ordered was awesome. We shared pear purses which were great. Service was good but ventilation of open concept...

Great evening, start to finish. The staff were gracious and knowledgeable. Ben was helpful navigating their extensive wine list. Every course of our meal was fresh & flavorful. We had a romantic table for two. Including outdoor seating, they can only seat about 40 people, so call for a reservation. Owner Manuel show old-school class by greeting and thanking all... More

So glad I read TA and made a reservation. We had a show to see and really did not have enough time to really enjoy the full ambiance of our visit. Our waiter, Chris was excellent, his recommendations were spot on. The food was superb, it really did feel like we were back in Little Italy enjoying a great meal.... More
