Paul Manno's never fails to delight our senses with exceptional fare and good service. To top it off the restaurant has a good wine list. The only downside is at times it is difficult to get a reservation which proves its popularity with many in St. Louis.

This is one of those little out of the way places that unless someone local knows about, you could easily miss. Fantastic Italian food, great service and atmosphere

We had a wonderful dinner last night at Paul Manno's. Several of us had scallops and they were done just right. Others from the group had lasagna and it was delicious and a huge portion. The salads were all great, so fresh but also you could tell the attention to detail. Our waiter was Matthew and he was outstanding a... More

Fantastic food and service. In a town with great Italian restaurants, Paul Manno's stands out. Anytime we have visitors from out of town, we take them here and it always over delivers!

This is truly a diamond in the rough. Little out of the way place that only a true local would know of. Fantastic Italian Cuisine, that's always good, never a disappointment. Service is top notch as well.
