Dont let this restaurants location (in a strip center) and simple facade fool you. First of all the atmosphere is cozy and homey. The owner and his son walking around, helping... More

Went here on a 'first date' and was very impressed. I am a sucker for a dimly lit cozy Italian restaurant, and this one takes the cake! Even though it is a very popular spot and usually crowded, it doesn't take away from the intimacy of the dinning experience. The food was very good, and the waiter was nice, but... More

This is a great place to eat and enjoy real Italian food. The service is very hands on but they will not rush you.

Eat here with our extended family for my mother-in-law's retirement. Wonderful food, atmosphere and service! Arguably the best Italian in the St Louis area. Everyone loved their food and the service was outstanding! A great place to celebrate! Don't be fooled by the location in a strip mall. This place is the real deal!

I've been to Paul Manno's roughly 5 times in the last 2 years, and need to GO MORE! The quality of food, and their attention to detail is sensational. I've been trying to order a different pasta dish every time I'm there to explore all their great reciepe's and have never been disappointed. If it's your first time going, you... More

Paul Manning is a small restaurant with a family feel. The food was out of this world and the service was even better. They have an amazing wine selection with staff to make recommendations based on your entree. Definitely a must try!!

I have eaten at all the expensive restaurants in town. All the 5 and 4 star. My whole family likes Paul Manno's over Annie Gun's, 801 Chop and every Italian restaurant on the hill. The food is incredible!!!! A must if you haven't tried it. It will be the last place I eat whenever we have to move again.
