We went to celebrate our anniversary. The dining room was nice but small and very noisy. They brought to the table great warm bread with seasoned olive oil. I started with the Caesar salad and had the Veal Porcini which was very good. My wife ordered the Shrimp and Mushroom Pasta that did not have much flavor. It seemed like... More

From the reviews here, we made reservations to have dinner here to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. The first thing you notice when you walk in is how very tiny the restaurant is. The next thing you notice is how loud and noisy it is. Definitely not the place for a romantic dinner, we could barely hear each other or... More

We were visiting our granddaughter at the University of Florida and after an afternoon of touring the campus she suggested Manuel's for dinner. What a great dining experience! The service was first class and the food was outstanding as good as any of the top named chefs restaurants. We will definitely return!

Wonderful small restaurant with an exceptional owner and staff. Just like being in Italy, although the owner is Mexican married to an Italian. The veal porcini is great, and the calamari is also very good. Great wine choices and exceptional service.

I recently went here with my fiancée to celebrate her birthday. It was our second visit, and it was just an wonderful as the first time there. From the very attentive and knowledgable serving staff, to the exquisite flavors of our meal, everything was great. I ordered Rigatoni alla Vodka and my fiancée got the Gnocchi Daniela. Both were very... More

I didn't have a reservation but they offered me a table outside. The servers were helpful and kind, Manuel came and talked with me for a while. I watched as he greeted and visited with everyone. He loves his restaurant and makes it a pleasure to be there. The food was great. Particularly the pear gnocchi, delicious and rich, I'm... More

We had great food and excellent service. The restaurant is a quaint small venue. Such a nice place to eat during our visit to downtown Gainesville. Highly recommended.

It's a charming nook of a restaurant with distressed brick walls and linen table cloths. The owner welcomed us to our table a we proceeded to have an awesome night! Prosecco to start followed by the Pear and Ricotta pasta purses, arugula and Caesar salads and our main courses: a grouper special a a dish of shrimp and pasta. All... More

Here's the best part. The food was really good and the service staff was excellent. Here's the bad part and I'm going to have to take a deep breath on this one, because there's a lot bad and it all starts with ownership/management. People!!! I don't want to walk into what would strike me as an upscale, white-tablecloth and crystal... More
