Never Disappointed!

Visited Manetta's Ristorante on Saturday night. Had reservations for 6 and we were seated immediately. Ordered three different salads (large plates) and we were able to pass around the dishes so everyone could taste them. We ordered branzino, lamb chops, monk fish, pasta and mussels... read more

I live in Vermont and planned a baby shower via long distance for my daughter who lives in Long Island City. After reviewing the menu and speaking to Manetta's by phone we decided to have them cater our event. During the planning process, I made many phone calls to Manetta's. No matter who I spoke to, I never felt like... More

Of all the overly-saturated Italian places in LIC, this is by far the BEST in this area. Much better than the ones on Vernon and Jackson. The food is truly excellent, made to perfection, the restaurant is nice too. Looking forward to going back here and only here for Italian food.

I lived in LIC for 20 years and moved away for 11. When I came back I needed a place to take someone out to dinner for a special occasion and I remembered Manettas. How lucky for me, how lucky for my guest. This charming restaurant is so consistent you might say it was caught in a time warp, but... More

We had a couples dinner here between Christmas and New Years. It was a cold day and we arrived early for our reservation, we were greeted warmly and shown to our table by the wood burning fire which warmed us even more. Our server helped us pick a great bottle of wine. We all ordered pasta dishes and settled in... More

The service was very good and the waiter was great, dessert was very good but I as well as my wife was a little disappointed in the main course. The veal Marsala was average and the marinara sauce, well let's say we think someone knock over the salt shaker into the sauce. For the money that was spent it should... More

Love Manetta's and the food. Our last visit on Halloween, 2015, our server totally ruined our night. The guy had no personality, and really bummed out our dinner the night before the NYC Marathon. It was as if it was a burden for him to serve our party of 3. We are kind people, don't ask much. But he really... More

I had the filet, which was delicious and prepared correctly. The chocolate molten cake was to die for. Service was extremely pleasant and fast. If your in the area I would recommend you stopping by.

This is worth your time. The food is absolutely delicious. The service is good and the prices are very reasonable. No excuse not to go here, especially if you are in the neighborhood. Visiting MoMa PS1, for example.
