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

My husband and I took a window seat in Manuel's Vintage Room and the fun began. As a lightening storm flashed outside the window the chef had marvelous dishes flaming within view in the kitchen. We ordered snails for our appetizer and out came more snails than we'd ever seen in one place before. The snails were delicious and buttery.... More

This visit to Manuel's was our first but won't be our last. The food was especially delicious, far above the taste of any other restaurants we've tried. The service was equally good as was the setting, small and intimate. It costs a little more than other good Italian restaurants in Gainesville but is worth the greater price. I recommend it... More

This is a fantastic restaurant. When we came to eat Manuel himself stopped by our table and chatted for a bit. The place is very small and homey, and I highly recommend calling ahead. The parking sucks, but thats downtown Gainesville for you. All of the food was amazing, but I have to add that the clam chowder was some... More
