We dined at Manuel's on a very busy Friday night (college football weekend) - after hearing so much about Manuel's both personally and on tripadvisor. My party of four was very much looking forward to the experience, and, overall, we were not disappointed. First, the PROS: The wine list is very, very impressive. The service was excellent. They even called... More

Small place, so make sure to have reservations. Menu is varied and all dishes are superb. Not for people on diets! Great for group or intimate celebrations.

We have been here several times, particularly when we take job candidates out to dinner. We like the ambience, and the staff has always been great. The food is great. On our last visit, we were wrapping up the evening when Manuel himself started to escort us out-despite the fact that we weren't quite leaving. I realize that they're on... More

We ate at Manuel's Vintage Room last night and what a wonderful experience! It has been a very long time since everyone in the family loved their food this much. We had the Lobster Ravioli (with truffle cream sauce), Vintage Duck, and the Lamb Bolognese. We simply had to sample and share every dish. The Grilled Vegetable Plate was a... More

The next time you come to Manuel's you absolutely have to have the pasta purses and then the lobster ravioli. Both these dishes illustrate the absolute best Manuel's has to offer. I'm not even a huge lobster fan so if you love lobster the lobster ravioli will blow your mind. It's a flavor palate explosion to say the least! Kudos... More

The atmosphere is upscale and vibrant. The Ceasers salad was fantastic as were the rustic salad and apple salad. The duck was phenomenal especially the blackberry sauce. The macadamia chicken was fantastic. The gnocchi was very delicious

Manuel’s is a formal Italian restaurant in the heart of Gainesville. It gets very good reviews. The Hits: The staff and owner were very nice. The dining room was quite pleasant. The best item we had was the delicious Apple Salad. The bread was rather addictive. They gave us tastes of wine before we ordered which was most appreciated. The... More

Thank you TA for this find!! Passing through Gainesville for one night on a road trip and stopped here. Definitely happy I had read reviews to make a reservation as others were turned away. Quaint little place with an open kitchen. Bread arrived with a basil infused olive oil. We had Tuscan bean soup with Rosemary which was full of... More

We had the pleasure of dining for the first time at Manuel's for our wedding anniversary. Since moving to Gainesville a couple years ago, we had heard talk of how wonderful Manuel's is. But now we know firsthand that it is worthy of all the accolades. The service, the food and the value are all top-notch. The restaurant is small... More
