You can count on the food. It is a standard Italian restaurant offering good value and food. Nothing earth shattering but when you want a predictable dinner with great service and good quality this is one of the best in the neighborhood.

My wife and I eat here as often as we can (thankfully w reside relatively nearby) and absolutely love their squid ink pasta and chicken parm. Manetta's is very old school and has a nice, relaxing vibe that has a traditional Italian feel to it. The portions are reasonable and the food is absolutely delicious. They also have a solid...

We love Manetta's, it is our "go to" place when we want to eat locally. The staff is all family run, and so warm and friendly and responsive to our requests. I have recently become gluten free and they totally accommodate me with amazing possibilities. My husband designed a salad that they now order for him without prompting. The food... More

Food, wine and service are all amazing here. Servers will take excellent care of you and are friendly and professional. Italian food is amazing and has the great home cooked by grandma feel to it.

Had a fine meal of pappardelle with mushrooms and a gluten-free pizza. The pasta (not gluten-free) was homemade with slivers of deeply woodsy mushrooms in an intense mushroom sauce. Wonderfully, any pizza can be ordered gluten-free. For dessert, we had a good version of flourless chocolate cake served with a lovely berry sorbet. The service is very relaxed, so you... More

I have visited here several times for dinner with colleagues There is always a warm welcome and the food is extremely good On my last visit I had the salade principessa to start followed by the gamberoni zaffarani (a shrimp risotto) both of which were great. There are always interesting specials and on this occasion the mozzarella appetiser special with... More

Back in NY to visit family/friends and had to go back to Manetta's! It is a great as ever. Added some table outside since our last visit but that is about all. Love the food, love the presentation, love the staff! Be advised, it is sometimes noisy and parking can be difficult.

My family and I really liked the food at this place. We tried several pasta dishes and one fish dish, and all were enjoyable and authentic. Service was fast and friendly. Prices a bit high but the quality makes it worth it.

Very average Italian food, disappointed & gave my daughter food poisoning, very slow service with 1 waiter slamming things down on the table. Before we had finished the meal my 16 year old daughter was suddenly & violently sick.

Not too thrilled about this place due to the past experiences. Well it happened again. We are a party of 7, go there at Noon and the restaurant was almost empty. The waiter needs to brush up on his English as we could barely understand the specials. We placed our orders and did not get our appetizers for almost an... More
