So this is in a 1960s looking strip mall in west county. It is around the corner from a Goodwill Store. The mall is a disconnect from the dining experience at Paul Manno's. Everything is perfect. Awesome servers- many have been there for a long time. The Sea bass and lamb chops were favorites at our table. I loved my... More

Don't let the location of being in a small strip mall fool you! Paul Manno's is a diamond in the rough. The atmosphere and ambiance are simple, but beautiful. The service is phenomenal, and the food is beyond words! My husband and I had our first date there (almost 20 years ago), it's where he proposed, and our go-to restaurant... More

My wife and I try to stop by Paul Manno's every time we come to St. Louis. The restaurant is in a shopping center and can be easy to miss. The inside the restaurant has a nice atmosphere. The bread served before dinner was soft with crispy crust and has olive oil to dip with it. Tastes awesome. We usually... More

This was beyond the beyond. My veal dish was tender and had such complex and balanced flavors. The Sunday Gravy Pasta blew my mind and the service...I sat at the bar and was so well taken care of. This is a beautiful designed restaurant with great beauty.

Paul Manno's Cafe had been on our list to visit for a while, and when we finally went we wished we had visited sooner. It is located in a very low key strip mall, but don't let the exterior deceive you. We were warmly welcomed as we walked in, and were surprised at the warm and cozy interior. From there... More

Came on a Wednesday night without a reservation. The cafe is located in a strip mall and the outside is completely unassuming. When you open the door you realize that outside appearance isn't always the best gauge. The interior was decorated with standard Italian decorations and was well done. You had the feeling it was real old school Italian. The... More

I travel to Chesterfield monthly for business. Coming from a traditional Italin family and growing up in the metro NYC area, I found Paul Mannos in Trip Advisor. I was very pleasantly surprised by the amazing food they served. While the restaurant is deceiving from its location in a strip shopping center, the food quality and quantity is too notch.... More

There is nothing you could not like At Paul Manno's Café. nothing special from the outside in a non descript strip mall - but everything changes when you enter the doors. From the Professional staff who greet and serve to the attention paid by the owner himself - you are special the minute you walk in. The food is to... More

Strip mall location so what it's the food, service, and atmosphere that brings us back here. It's my favorite place cuz it's better than what I make at home from my moms recipes. Veal is my favorite. The chop is wonderfully presented and tastes even better. The breaded veal chop is outstanding too. Seabass if you like or want to... More

The service was great and the food was excellent. I believe the waiter's name was Avery who always made sure we were taken are of. I had the lasagna which to me was the best I've ever had and my daughter had the calamari which was excellent as well. My wife had Chicken Parmesan which was good but not as... More
