Love this place!

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

My wife and I had been encouraged by numerous friends to try this restaurant. Now I am sorry I waited so long. One of the best Italian meals I have ever eaten anywhere. Very friendly staff, great menu and wine selections, environment quiet enough to hear conversation. Everything was perfect. We have returned and will continue to return.

When we pulled up to Paul Manno's I thought we were in for an average meal. I was so wrong! Don't let the location fool you. Once inside you'll love the decor and the food is amazing. It's one of the best Italian meals we've had in St. Louis and that includes several of our favorites on The HIll. The... More

Are you kidding me? My son heard about this place on the radio. We made reservations for 7 the same day . Ordered the eggplant salad, the bread was fresh and warm, loved the oil and balsamic vinegar dipping sauce. Lamb chops, sea bass and salmon were delish. Great service from Luis. He even brought out a dessert for my... More

Excellent experience and promise not to tell anyone. The food is excellent also and it will surprise you because it is in a strip mall. The food is 10 times better than you would think. But it is hard to get into. Thx!
