This is a great place for food, atmosphere, and service. We tried two different clam sauces, the duck special, linguine with salmon and shrimp parmigiana. All were excellent. We also enjoyed tartufo, home made pumpkin pie, and profiterole. Highly recommended!

Love this restaurant. The food is always delicious. Chicken Parmesan, Eggplant parmesan, Cesar Salad with Grilled Shrimp, all the pastas are a 10 and the staff is pleasant. I never had a bad meal. Wine prices are reasonable.

This is an Italian, family run restaurant with a warm welcome. On the night we visited it was very busy, with families and older groups, which is always a good sign. I had the best seafood linguine I have ever tasted. Other members of our...More

LIC's top Italian restaurant, superb service standards and a excellent range of home produced authentic Italian dishes. The wine list is reasonably priced, even if some of the main dishes are getting a bit pricey, but for this atmosphere and quality of service who cares!

There is metered parking near the restaurant however tough to get. It depends when you go. Also there is free parking on nearby streets but again tough to get but can get it if you are lucky.

You are in Manhattan and Manetta's is in Queens only reachable by subway ride. As you are in Dumont you may want to stay closer say Coppola's which is on Third Avenue and 28th street and is walkable.
