We recently took a party of ten of all ages to the Manly Italian restaurant. It was a hit. It's not fine dining, but the portions are hearty, the waitstaff are very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is of an old fashioned family-run Italian restaurant. You pay quite reasonable prices and we would strongly recommend it.

After wanting to go here for 3 years, I finally made it. The pasta and gnocchi were as fresh as the rumours said. The prices excellent and the service homely and accomodating. Thoroughly enjoyed. Could probably get some better air conditioning but apart from that no complaints. Can't wait to go back.

For years I have visited Manly Italian, westernised rather than regionally authentic, it's consistent, large servings, the restaurant at times is quite busy and noisy, if you can forgive it's interiors and appreciate its offerings you won't be disappointed.

My fav place in Manly to go, some friends that were with us haven't been before and loved it. It was a great night by all lucky we booked as it was a sat night. Other dinner hadn't booked so had to wait.

Layout and atmosphere are fine. The quality of food is just average although if you like calamari and prawns my piece of advice is not to order them here. Calamari taste sweet and not very fresh. Prawns are served swimming in abundant sauce and they don't look great either. On a positive side the quantity of food is not scarce... More

Waited for a good 2 min before approaching the bar where the cashier woman told another waitress to seat us. That waitress said she had something else to do then told... More

Place was packed when we visited, but a table was found for the 6 of us, in an efficient and professional manner. Could not fault the meal or service, or seating.

We arrived with the expectation of having an authentic Italian dining experience. Sadly this was not to be, while the staff were adequate the food less than ordinary. Garlic bread was a slice of toasted roll spread sparingly with garlic butter. Tried to order oysters (not available? On a Mother's Day weekend) we had galic prawns they were so so,... More

Staying in Manly

Neighbourhood Profile
Manly
A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.
