Great pizza!

We've been in search of some good pizza in the area and have heard a lot about Manatee's so we thought we'd give it a try. We weren't disappointed by the pizza at all, in fact I most certainly would order it again but the next time it would be a carry out. It was a beautiful evening and so... read more

Have been getting our "pies" there since arriving here 8 years ago and have always been happy!! This time I asked for delivery (usually dine in) of the extra large "meatza" and got just the large delivered and it was well done and dried out. This should have never left the restaurant!

Small place with limited parking but close in. The menu is limited (on purpose) and pizza is outstanding with almost any topping you could want. Great crust. Very casual, very comfortable.

Very good pizza, possibly the best of the pizza places currently open. The manatee size is really large and priced well. I would classify it as NY style, thin foldable chewy crust. We had pepperoni, sausage and mushroom toppings. It wasn't really loaded, but it wasn't skimpy either. The mushrooms were fresh and the sausage wasn't that crap that some... More

This is the only place we will order pizza in town and have been coming here for many years. We love the extra large garden pizza with plenty of veggies and a nice thin crust. But any of the pizzas we have tried are first-rate. The pitchers of beer are ice cold and the service is prompt. Our favorite night... More

Very casual - large menu - great pizza. Friendly staff. Can be a madhouse in season.... Lots of special deals on food and drink. Inside and outside seating.

We were meeting friends in Punta Gorda who had never eaten at Manatees but had heard about this restaurant. There is no ambiance in the restaurant. Menus were brought and order taken in a timely manner. My husband and I ordered a caesar salad to share. Good size, did not care for the dressing, and...tomatoes are not part of a... More

Manatees certainly lived up to its 'word of mouth' reputation as far as its food is concerned- we enjoyed delightful, thin crust pizzas and two for one drinks but the service left lots to be desired. Unless the staff are trained to smile and to continue to check whether patrons are ready for another drink, then people will take their... More
