After they moved next to La Nopalera on Kingsley, we attempted to eat there once. My Wife and I and our one year old child were turned away at the door by a little old Italian lady that, in a room full of empty tables, told us that if we didn't have a reservation that she couldn't serve us.

Manny's has closed. Manny and his wife have retired and moved out of state. His mother and father have relocated to Park Avenue Bistro (another family owned and operated restaurant) on Fleming Island (3535 U.S 17, Fleming Island, FL 32003 at US 17 & Westover Rd).

the chicken piccota, linguini with clam sauce and sauteed spinach is to die for! and they have this dip for your bread that is heavenly! the atmosphere is very comfortable. there are a husband and wife who treat you like you are a guest in their home. it is a little pricey but the food is excellent!

If you have ever dined at Sarnelli's on US17 in Orange Park, then you probably feel the same way my husband and I did when we found out it had closed. Very sad...it took me a while to try Manny's (obviously her sons!) but when I did we were very happy. Glad tradition lives on. Ignore everyone's silly comments about... More

This restaurant is excellent. The food is very fresh and delicious. By far the best Italian restaurant in the Jacksonville area.

We just got home and are still raving about the wonderful meal. Greeted and seated promptly, we ordered two house wines, one white and one red to go with our appetizer of fried calamari. In addition, our waiter arrived with a basket of little hot rolls and an olive oil dipping sauce. The wines and rolls were very nice and... More

My wife and I tried Manny's Bistro on Kingsley Ave tonight. The place looked OK and we were greeted and seated. There was only 1 table occupied at 5:30 on a Wednesday evening. Franco was our waiter and provided reasonable service. We ordered Chicken Parmigiana. It came with rolls, salad and pasta. The chicken was obviously frozen and tough. The... More

We have been going to Sarnellis and now Manny's for several years. Not sure about the bad reviews especially based on decor. It's old world Italian and you'll find a similar style at family owned Greek places. It's not fast food so don't go if you're in a hurry. We enjoy not being rushed and being able to enjoy our...

My wife and I were visiting my father at Orange Park Medical and wanted to go grab a bit to eat so we just chose Manny's by accident. We were amazed at how fresh the salad was and the panini was without a doubt the best I've ever eaten in my entire life. The people in the restaurant were true... More
