Everything was fantastic. Good meal good service good atmosphere. The sea bass was one of the best pieces of fish I've ever had. Mussels were good. Broth was amazing but the mussels were smaller than I normally prefer. Desserts not as good as hoped for based on the rest of the meal but still quite tasty.

Lets get the location out of the way-it is either out in the middle of nowhere or right around the corner. For someone from out of town, staying downtown and without a car, getting there would be a problem. For many people who live in St Louis it is very easy to get to. The food and service could not...

My wife and I were at Paul Manno's last night for a business dinner entertaining another couple. We couldn't have been more impressed with the food and the service. Avery was our server and he was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, a real pro. I started with an appetizer of steamed mussels. They were wonderful and served in a nice light... More

We were taken to this restaurant by our suppliers. It is situated in a quiet shopping centre but when you walk in it takes on a whole new experience. The owner was on hand to welcome us which is a great first impression. The waiter was very knowledgeable on the food and wine that was available which always helps when... More

We had another good meal at Paul Manno"s last Thursday evening. We all wanted pastas this time, but couldn't decide between two, so our waiter split 2 different kinds, & we each gott 2 different ones. Before dinner we had a martini at the bar, which were excellent. My only criticism was that the corkage fee for the wine went... More

I have eaten here a few times now and the food is always fresh, well prepared and excellent. I can't fault it. A real Italian restaurant outside of Italy.

A new favorite restaurant and some of the best food I've ever eaten -- and I'm a bit of a food snob. My son and I enjoyed a lovely meal, good wine, and charming atmosphere. Our waiter was exceptional -- prompt, personable, and knowledgeable. I tried one of the specials, the sea bass, which was remarkable -- tender and flavorful... More

A candidate for the best service we've ever had anywhere, the cordial owner greets the guests himself and the waitstaff are excellent. Perfect, flawless service. Menu is very traditional Italian, a return to the classics of Italian cooking; everything is correctly prepared, but this is not a "new Italian" cuisine, rather, the older and classic manner of preparation. Excellent wine... More

It's in a strip mall but don't let that scare you off. Penne Alla Nonna can't miss. Make sure to get a table away from the door. If it's hot or cold you will feel it - plus the restaurant is dark and the change in light can be distracting.

This is a great place to dine. The food and service are always excellent. Their pastas are delicious, especially the pasta al la nonna, and the daily fish preparations are always excellent. Save room for some tiramisu!
