I'm Italian and I just arrived in London, after Christmas, for a Romantic Holiday with my boyfriend. We were staying in Crystal Palace and on the first evening we decided to look for a nice restaurant nearby. And we found Manuel's. We loved the calm, elegant, but familiar, atmosphere we felt as soon as we got in. We had an Amazing Dinner. The food tasted and was presented as only the finest restaurants in Italy do. We had first some delicious grilled vegetables with Caprino (goats cheese) followed by a Risotto ai frutti di mare (with seafood). It was so good!! But I can say that there was one thing that tasted so good I couldn't even compare it to Italy, the Olive oil. So fruity and delicate that was, by itself, the King of our dinner. My boyfriend and I couldn't stop eating bread with a drizzle of this wonderful oil on top! And last but not least the Wine, beautiful real italian wine. I just can't wait to go back to London for another beautiful Holiday and dinner at Manuel's.
