When you need comfort, this is the place to go. The bright dining room is simple but comfortable. The menu is quite large for a smallish restaurant. The place does a lot of take-away. The service is terrific. Everyone here makes you feel welcome and special. Hot bread and their own olive oil to start - make sure to take... More

The home made meat lasagna was fantastic. We also had a meatball sub with provolone which was fantastic. Finally, the Greek salad was perfect. They have seating if you want to dine in.

The food at Manoli Canoli is very good. The homemade olive oil, olives, and mozzarella cheese are excellent (we don't cook with any other olive oil at home anymore). But what's really outstanding is the service. Every time I walk in I feel beautiful. I guess that sounds silly, but it's really a nice oasis in an otherwise difficult day.... More

We were a large group but all were seated in a long table. Food was fabulous. We must have ordered at least 10 dishes. Everyone raved. Found the portions a little too big so suggest one dish could be split. Staff were funny and very helpful. Found parking in rear of restaurant. Owner brought us a complimentary liquor at end...

I work across the street from Manoli Canoli, and I have to stop myself from going there too often for lunch. The restaurant has a relaxed, old world feel with traditional Greek and Italian foods. It gets packed for lunch and dinner, which is a great way to instantly judge a restaurant's quality. Typically you have to seat your self,... More

This is a true family style restaurant. The food is a mixture of Greek and Italian food. All of it is excellent, as is the service. The prices are very reasonable. The pasta dishes are prepared just right and the red sauce is excellent. The Greek dishes are authentic. They also have frozen pasta dishes that you can take home... More

On our recent trip to DC, we tried this restaurant because it was rated #5 in the area, and we were nearby. Atmosphere was casual family and pricing was the same - not expensive. Staff was very fast and friendly. However, for an Italian restaurant, the pasta and marinara was disappointing and uninteresting. The DC area has many many interesting... More

I love this place. We live in the area (close enough, Van Ness) and have been looking for a restaurant that is very tasty, but not expensive. It's extremely hard around here! Everything is homemade--even my daughter's chicken tenders. Best she's had...and when she didn't finish them, we did! And there's a decent wine selection--including some great Greek whites, so...

A small very popular restaurant with alert staff, good reservation system, very tasty food, good wine list. The atmosphere is bright and pleasant, and there is outdoor dining on the avenue. At first it was very noisy, but that family soon left and all was peaceful and pleasant for us and our guests. Recommended.
