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!

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
