Good But Overrated

Paul Manno's is a very nice Italian restaurant but wouldn't make my top ten list of Italian in the St Louis area. It's very dark and crowded and depending on where you're seated, you may be rubbing elbows with the next table's patrons. The food is good, but certainly not consistent with the rave... read more

After hearing much about Paul Manno's, we visited and did not go home dissatisfied! In an unassuming strip mall location, Paul Manno's is wonderful Italian St. Louis is known for (and, for us, closer than a trip to the Hill). The waiter was knowledgeable and set a comfortable pace. I always order scallops when dining out since I am never... More

Dim lighting, white table cloth dining is what greets you in this restaurant. Dining is leisurely and the waiter was helpful, especially in wine selection. Some of the dishes were very good, but several fell short. The tomato and eggplant special salad and scallops were misses. Spinach, side pasta, and lamb chops were hits. It was a special occasion, and... More

When on business trips we sometimes need to find a different place to eat, someplace that is not a chain restaurant. This restaurant fully qualifies as a great local restaurant. When my coworker and I decided we needed to find a new place to try, we searched on trip advisor and found that this place was rated number one. So... More

It never disappoints! The food and atmosphere are excellent. Service is always impeccable. Love that it is small and cozy which makes it one of the best quaint places in the area.

What a delightful and delicious Italian venue. When you walk inside this seemingly small restaurant, you step into a world of wonderful food, aromas and experience the true flavors of Sicily. The food/dishes here truly rival my grandmothers' cooking from the little town of Palermo, Sicily. The chef is consistent, the dishes hot and service is meticulous. The waiters know... More

We've eaten in many fine restaurants all over the St. Louis area since being here the last 18 months but, for some reason, we had not even heard of Paul Manno's until a friend mentioned it as his favorite restaurant in all of St. Louis. Everything about it was wonderful...perfectly prepared, absolutely delicious, and the service was outstanding. We can't... More

We started with an order of the muscles to share around that table. We had to talk my sister-in-law into trying them and she was sold with the first taste. Its been a few weeks since we ate there, and I wish I could remember what else we tried. I do recall that there was an excellent wine list and... More

We selected this restaurant from Trip Advisor, and, hoping to eat somewhere reasonably priced with two young girls, we walked into a strip mall, expecting a cafe. This is an exquisite restaurant, and the food was do delicious that my husband and I have decided we will think of reasons to drive three hours to Chesterfield, Missouri, in order to... More
