We met friends at Paul Manno's last night. I had been there years before but it was the first time for everyone else. It was fabulous in every way. Bottom line - don't be deceived by the outward appearance in this strip center. You will be pleased beyond your expectations. A taste of "The Hill" in West County.

St. Louis offers many Italian fine dining choices and Paul Manno's in Chesterfield should be among your selections. Their menu offers many traditional favorites in a quiet setting conducive to conversation. Service is friendly but not over-bearing. We particularly enjoyed their Insalata Paolo to start. I devoured their veal piccata offered as a large portion of tasty veal with capers... More

This restaurant is a class act. Food is absolutely delicious and the waiters are knowledgeable and professional. This is what I would consider an upscale dining establishment. It offers an Italian cuisine menu. Went there twice in a month and look forward to returning. Especially like the atmosphere. Very relaxing, calm, not too noisy. Décor is lovely. At the holidays...

That's what my wife said when she took the first bites of her salad. This was a daily special salad with slices of beefsteak tomatoes and fried eggplant with cheese and a balsamic glaze. We finally got to eat at Paul Manno's after talking about it for a couple years. The occasion was my birthday, but we enjoyed it like... More

the place has a very old school vibe. Sinatra was playing in the background, low lighting, lots of photos of the owner with famous people. The lasagna was very good, and service was also very good. Good place for a business dinner and I will definitely return.

Aaaammmmazzing! So delicious. I don't ever order eggplant anything but thought I would try something new when the waiter mentioned there eggplant salad as a special appetizer for the night. It was so unbelievably good that I couldn't wait to come back and that was just the appetizer. My husband and I have eaten here a few times and have... More

Paul Manno’s is a classical, almost formal Italian restaurant. Service is meticulous and polite but cool. The restaurant is fairly quiet, allowing easy conversation. The dishes are well established and familiar. The Campanelle Nona was outstanding. Veal Saltimbocca and the first course calamari were both very good. We also had a canolli for dessert and it was okay. Wines were... More

The ambiance and food at this restaurant was extremely good. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area. I would order the cannelloni again. It was delicious! I didn't care for the cannoli.
