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

If you're looking for a cozy, quaint fine dining experience in Gainesville, look no further! Set in the downtown area. Great atmosphere, great service. Food was fantastic. We enjoyed great pasta dishes, fish and chicken. Extensive wine list. Desserts were tasty. This was the best restaurant we've been to in Gainesville ever.

Manuel's menu is inspired and has original approaches to a number of its dishes. The generous portion of escargot I had there were superb. For those who like snails, this was a unique treat. They were delicious and the quantity enabled me to really explore their unique aroma and flavor. Sauces were another means to reveal the imagination of Manuel's... More

We've been there a bunch. Excellent food and always great service. Wish that I could single out one or two dishes, its just that they're all delicious.

You can't go wrong. It's pricey, but oh so worth every penny! You have to try the Pasta Purse appetizers. The Duck entree is absolutely amazing! The veggie sides are delish! The wine list is extensive. Wonderful atmosphere. Top notch servers. You will love it!
