A new favorite restaurant and some of the best food I've ever eaten -- and I'm a bit of a food snob. My son and I enjoyed a lovely meal, good wine, and charming atmosphere. Our waiter was exceptional -- prompt, personable, and knowledgeable. I tried one of the specials, the sea bass, which was remarkable -- tender and flavorful... More

A candidate for the best service we've ever had anywhere, the cordial owner greets the guests himself and the waitstaff are excellent. Perfect, flawless service. Menu is very traditional Italian, a return to the classics of Italian cooking; everything is correctly prepared, but this is not a "new Italian" cuisine, rather, the older and classic manner of preparation. Excellent wine... More

It's in a strip mall but don't let that scare you off. Penne Alla Nonna can't miss. Make sure to get a table away from the door. If it's hot or cold you will feel it - plus the restaurant is dark and the change in light can be distracting.

This is a great place to dine. The food and service are always excellent. Their pastas are delicious, especially the pasta al la nonna, and the daily fish preparations are always excellent. Save room for some tiramisu!

We have been at Paul Manno's several times in the past but since a transfer to Kansas City it hard to make it back. There were 6 of us that went for dinner Saturday night and the evening was wonderful. I had the Pollo Parmigiano and it was amazing as I expected. This is one of our favorite places to... More

I had a fantastic dinner at Paul Mannos on Feb 19th, 2014. The food and service were outstanding. Forget that you are in a strip mall. Once inside, you'd really never know (plus parking was a snap). Go here for dinner and take your friends -You wont regret it!

Food was very good @ this St Louis classic - the service, specifically our waiter, Matt, was awful. Dense and unable to listen / follow basic requests like 'we'd like to order' which prompted to circle the table and leave. Food is worth the visit though.

I've heard so many great reviews about this place and they were true. I had a craving for lasagna which I never do and they exceeded my expectations! I called in a to go order and it was ready when requested. They were nice and friendly. I also ordered Tiramisù and it was good but I've had better. Would I... More

This was one of the worst experiences I have ever had at any restaurant. The service was absolutely horrendous and the staff were downright rude. In particular, our waiter Matt was inexcusably bad. (Some people in our group thought his name was Mark - can't say for sure.) My husband and I are both vegetarians (and my father and I... More

Paul Manno's was recommended to my group for a business dinner. We were not disappointed! This is a smaller, more intimate establishment in a strip mall setting in Chesterfield. But don't let that deter you. The ambiance is very Italian with Godfather pictures abound, the owner walks the floor speaking with patrons, and the service is top-rate. And the food... More
