This is a small restaurant downtown with an Italian menu. The tables are very close together. The menu is fairly standard but there are specials. The salads are good but the pasta dishes are uninspired. Not bad just not great.

After reading all the excellent reviews online my husband and I figured that we would give Manuels a whirl. The dining room is very small and intimate with candles and low lighting. The service is excellent- waitstaff is very attentive. The food though was good but I wouldn't say that it was great or anything to really rave about. We... More

Good service, good food, very good vine. A real restaurant with a small but well balanced menu. I enjoyed every dish I had. Go there and enjoy a nice evening.

Everything was great- the food, wine, service and environment. I wish I could remember the name of the owner- he came out and entertained us for a while. It was very nice and a pleasure! Thank you for a great evening!

Shhhhh ... Almost afraid to tell anyone how wonderful this place is! Staff is clearly well trained. Can't think of one thing they did wrong. Food was superb and meeting Manuel himself was a true bonus. Eat here if you can!

Manuel's (along with Paramount Grill) offers the best fine dining in Gainesville. The setting is intimate, the ingredients fresh, and the wine list excellent. The servers are attentive without being overly so. They're quick with helpful recommendations and pairings. It's consistently divine. Well worth the price.
