Best restaurant in St Louis. Paul and his staff do everything make you experience a "10"! Every meal is great. My favorite a stack salad and a plate of Paul's to die for PE Mussels.

Whenever I am reviewing St. Louis best restaurant lists I am always surprised that this restaurant is not on the list. Terrific ambiance,(do not let the strip mall location deter you), great service and delicious food. We had the opportunity to meet the owner the other night. A delightful man who talked to us about the history of the restaurant... More

My wife and I went for dinner on a date night. It is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in a city known for great Italian food! The cannoli is one my favorite dishes and the toasted ravioli is awesome even if it's not on the menu. This is a great night out for a business dinner or family event.... More

One type of cuisine that we really lack in East Tennessee is high quality Italian. Since we were visiting the St. Louis area…a mecca for Italian food…we decided to take advantage of that fact! This restaurant is located in a fairly non-descript looking storefront with blacked out windows in a modest strip center. The fact that it’s in a suburban... More

My wife and I were returning from a long trip in Missouri. It was getting late and we were looking for someplace easy to eat. We were both dressed very casually and had planned to eat at Cracker Barrel right off the interstate. Instead, I use trip advisor to find a good restaurant in Chesterfield Missouri. Paul Manno's came up... More

Went last Friday to celebrate or wedding anniversary!!! The wait staff was great and food is incredible. Started off with the calamari appetizer and we each got the salads with meat on them. Full of flavor. I got the veal and she got the chicken. Loved it!!! Huge portions with tons of leftovers. Wait staff is on top of it.... More

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 reviews we've heard. I had the... 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
