This little cafe on Connecticut Avenue in Chevy Chase offers delicious Greek and Italian dishes. Our family adores moussaka and theirs is absolutely incredible. We often do takeout and have ordered an entire sheet of moussaka to serve for a party at our home.

We made a last-minute reservation at Manila cannoli for Thursday night, before the inauguration. It was crowded, but not jammed, likely because so many Washingtonians had left town. The staff were friendly and helpful without hovering. The food is Italian comfort food. The restaurant advertises itself as Greek and Italian, but the great majority of the items on the menu...

This restaurant is a fine place to meet a friend for an inexpensive yet nice meal - attentive yet unhurried service, plenty of parking.

My family stopped here on the way out of DC and it was incredible. Family friendly. Best chicken parm we've ever had. Avgolemono soup is amazing! Spanakopita was delicious. Service was friendly & accommodating.

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
