Our favorite Italian restaurant in Gainesville remains our favorite. Manuel's never fails to deliver a great meal. The lamb and steak were great! Good wine selections. Great service!

Stopped by on a Saturday evening without a reservation. Told we had a long wait, but were content to sip wine in front while we waited. We met the owner, Manuel and he was delightful and we enjoyed talking with him. We were soon seated and the feast began. Our salads and appetizers were fantastic but this was only the... More

This was my second visit to Manuel's in a week. The food is fabulous. You have to try the pear purses! I usually don't like fruit coked with my dinner but these were amazing! I had the veal piccata and my sister had the chicken piccata, both were delicious! The wine list is extensive. Service is fantastic. make reservations.

The best service and some of the best food in Gainesville. Manuel's is downtown, an it is close to many local night spots. Please book early in the week for a weekend night. The dining room is small but highly sought after. my visit was for he 5:30 seating. Once we were done it was still very light outside and... More

This was a cute little place stuck in the middle of downtown Gainesville. The pear pillows were recommended and boy were they good! Yummy.....I had the duck for my entrée which was perfection. My husband chose a tuna special. It was almost to "spicy" hot to eat. It was cooked good but way to heavy on the spices. We also... More

Outstanding food and service in every way. The food is very high quality all prepared fresh. All the waiters are professional and Mr. Manuel himself is always there personally looking after every detail.

Our party of five dropped to an unexpected party of four. No problem. Great wine selection by the glass and bottle, limited beer selection. Less than ten tables and the owner is present checking in on everyone. Attentive service and remarkable food. Loved the escargot and calamari which the server served us individually. My veal with mushrooms was nothing short... More

Wife and I were traveling and found this place online. We had on shorts and t-shirts (nice shirts). We arrived to find button down shirts and dressy attire. Went in anyway and we're seated with no regard to our attire. Steak was like butter. Perfectly cooked. Wife had a salad that was meal sized and above her expectations. Too full... More
