The Rustic Salad was just beyond amazing.......I'm speechless to describe it. Their wine list is impeccable. The chef can be seen creating his masterpieces just out of eyeshot. Interior is cozy yet spacious! Incredible meal!!!

We were overnighting in Gainesville on a Sunday night on our way south. After checking Trip Advisor reviews, we decided to try Manuel's Vintage Room. We could not have more been more delighted with our dining experience at this quaint, classic Italian establishment. Good range of menu options without being too large to deliver quality. Garlicly snails as an appetizer,... More

This is an adorable place tucked into old downtown Gainesville. The steaks are absolutely delicious and the rustic interior makes you feel like you're in a small European town. Definitely a go to place for a romantic dinner. ALWAYS make a reservation.

The best restaurant in Gainesville, classical, vintage atmosphere and food is made to perfection. Reservations must be made at least two weeks in advance. We had Lobster Ravioli, Chicken Parmesan, mushroom penne pasta, and shrimp scampi. Antipasto delicacy snails, and salad. Service was exceptional.

My husband and I use TripAdvisor frequently to recommend restaurants in unfamiliar places. We've been to Gainesville many times before but we usual avail ourselves of the casual dining restaurants. This time, we wanted to treat ourselves to a really nice meal. TripAdvisor recommended Manuel's Vintage Room as the #1 restaurant in G'ville. It was Italian food, which we love,... More

This is such a GEM in downtown Gainesville! The food is fantastic and so is the service. I came here twice and both times loved the food. The first time ordered veal and the second time the lamb special.....all I can say is YUMMMMMMMM! The owner came up and spoke with our party and made sure to ask if we... More

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
