We frequently go to Paul Manno's for my wife's birthday. The food is amazing. Best Canaloni anywhere. Their bone-in veal chop pounded into Veal Parmesan is beyond compare. I have never had a dish at Manno's that was not head and shoulders above all but the finest restaurants on the country. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

Excellent Italian restaurant. Appetizer of Mussels and lamb chops for the entree was outstanding. Many other superb entrees.

Paul Manno's is by far the most outstanding hidden gem in St. Louis. This restaurant's unassuming exterior holds a fabulous secret inside. There is nothing but wonderful insisde. A lovely decor, amazing food, outstanding wine list, superior wait staff and an experience waiting to be had. You MUST try Paul Manno's. Please note that this hidden gem is popular amongst... More

We have missed the seafood from the Coast since moving here and finally found it in Paul Manno's. The service and atmosphere were very good and made for a wonderful evening for us!

This restaurant lived up to its reviews! We had a quiet, leisurely, delicious dinner with attentive, helpful waitstaff. We enjoyed a Lobster Ravioli appetizer and Insalata Di Paolo. Mains were Veal Piccata and Linguini Mare E Monti. The flavors were outstanding, the pasta was al dente and the seafood and veal cooked perfectly. Our waitstaff was very accommodating splitting food... More

On a recent Thursday evening we had the pleasure of dining at Manno's. We had reviewed the ratings from tripadvisor before our trip out to St. Louis and were hoping that the good comments we read were well deserved. They were. The restaurant has a lovely ambiance, with several Sinatra portraits on the walls. Nice artwork. Our waiter, Matthew, could... More

Our friends brought my husband and me here telling us it was one of their favorite restaurants (they dine out frequently and are very particular). We were skeptical by the outside appearance and the fact that it was in a strip mall, but it did not disappoint. Once inside, it's a whole new world. The atmosphere, service and food were... More

If you haven't been to Mannos, you have missed an exceptional experience in STL. Service - Paul will normally meet you at the door - if he misses you at the door he will stop by your table make sure everything is to your expectations. - Many of the wait staff have been with Paul Sr and Jr for over...

Well, I was very disappointed in our experience . We had both been there before and thought it was great. On this special occasion we had a very disappointing experience. The food was Ok. The service was great but because they jammed in too many tables we were literally eating with another table. They heard us and we heard them.... More
