A good Italian restaurant to me means not only delicious food but a lively, convivial, and not formal atmosphere. Manetta's was perfect. The food and wine were very good, the service excellent, and our waiters, other staff members, and even the owner's son were outgoing and friendly.
We were staying in Long Island City to see the U.S. Open. We went to
Manetta's because of a TripAdvisor recommendation. We liked it so much we went back the next night!
I thought the prices were very good, especially for the seafood we ordered both nights. The wine list was very good as well.
If you want healthy, deliciously flavored Italian food with good wine in a lively, very comfortable setting, Manetta's is perfect.
