I used to go here often for lunch many years ago but had not had the opportunity to get back until 15 years later. It is still a great Italian restaurant. Quality food and preparation, attentive service. This is a "destination" restaurant, and worth the travel time required to get there if you are in Manhattan (easy to get to... More

Just across the Pulaski Bridge decided to stop here on our way into Manhattan for the evening. It was about 6:00 PM so just before the rush and we had no reservation so they squeezed us in and gave us a nice table next to the fireplace which was burning real wood on a nippy evening. Very pleasant. Can't get... More

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.
