First visit Mutual birthday celebration with my wife. Very smart friendly service. Great food: perfect Caesar; delicious pine nut pesto olive oil for bread (fine mild sourdough); great mushroom/goat cheese/red onion crostini; outstanding lamb bolognese. Prices very reasonable for quality, wine list a bit pricey but excellent selection and support. One our overall finest restaurant experiences in recent years. We... More

I didn't know where to go so I went to Yelp for advice and this place got the best reviews and I see why. Really good Italian food excellent service and reasonable prices. I had Veal Piccata and a clam chowder that was just spicy enough to be memorable. The place is very small and tables are close but don't... More

Manuel's is our favorite restaurant in Gainesville. It is quite upscale and a bit pricier than other options in town, which is why we reserve it for special occasions. The food is absolutely amazing--I highly recommend the calamari, pear purses, gnocchi Daniela, and the macadamia nut chicken. The wine list is extensive and many are offered by the glass (there...

Grandson's favorite (10 years old) because of menu and service. My son likes the wine menu. His wife enjoys the vegetables. My wife and I enjoy the nightly specials. We prefer fish or veal cooked in traditional Italian recipe. Reservations required.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. It is very small and intimate. The service is very good and the food is always good. The owner is usually there and will make you feel very welcome...like going to visit family. This is an upscale Italian restaurant.

The food is excellent and the wine is wonderful, but the people really make this trattoria sparkle. Warm, friendly, but always with top-notch professionalism. I enjoy wine and I usually just ask the waiter what they are recommend, their list is extensive and often contains hidden gems.

Cosy, intimate and intoxicating aromas swirl around you and your party in this wonderful snippet of heaven! This is definitely a night to remember kind of place. A bit pricey, but worth every scrumptious penny! Save room for dessert!

We went here for a birthday celebration and loved everything about the place- cozy atmosphere, attentive but not obsequious service and DELICIOUS food. There were 9 of us, most having different dinners and everyone loved it. I can comment directly on an incredible red clam soup- hearty, spicy, delicious, loaded with diced clams in a wonderful broth and heavy, perfect... More
