Sometimes you have the pleasure to be served by a professional waiter who just gets everything right. Giovanni at Manhatten is one of these. He was pleasant, efficient and knowledgable. While we were there he was speaking English to us, Spanish to the table next to us as well as Italian to the locals. Wonderful to watch.

However, there is more to Manhatten than just the service. The food is terrific too. The fishermans soup was packed with seafood and delicious. The T-bone for 2 was huge and cooked perfectly. They also accommodated the kids too with kid friendly dishes not on the menu.

We had a great experience at Manhatten and highly recommend it.

Even it's quite crowded, we appreciated the very good service and especially the T-bone steak!
Very good value for money so I will consider going to Manhattan again.

We were in Milan for only a couple of nights on a family holiday and was looking for a decent looking resto close to our hotel. We decided to give the Manhattan a try. It certainly didn't disappoint. Our waiter, Giovanni, was the most friendly and attentive we'd ever come across, making suggestions and explaining the type of cuisine, which is apparently of Sardinian origin, hence the focus on seafood. And it was great seafood too!

To start, they offered a pizza base that's cooked until it rises into a huge ball - just airy inside - and drizzled with olive oil. My son asked for a ham and pineapple pizza, not on the menu but they gladly accommodated it. It was the largest pizza we'd ever seen! My daughter had the tradtional spaghetti bolegnaise. My husband chose mixed seafood with egg pasta. He raved about how fresh the pasta and seafood was. And I had grilled bream with eggplant and zuchini, which was very tasty. We were so full after such generous portions, we passed on the sweets. But instead we were offered fresh cherries for the kids and limocello for the adults. A big bowl of Italian biscuits also came out!

We had received such good food and service, we returned the next evening. We ordered different dishes then, including lobster pasta, and fish and seafood baked in pizza dough. It was all very delicious, with similarly generous portions.

A lovely and unpretentious restaurant that we wholeheartedly recommend!

Time stood still as we dined in this wondrous cuisine, buzzing with life and friendliness. Our waiter was the friendliest waiter we've ever had, telling us stories and beaming with excitement! They provided us with a whole array of free food and drink, such as pizza bread, limoncello(a whole bottle, no less!), cherries, biscuits, and cake! Altogether, this resteraunt was a 10/10!

This place is first of all well managed: the menu allows you low or high cost lunch&dining. Pizzas are good, fish is the speciality. I've been here five times as it's on my "safe list" for business trips to Milan. Nice evening atmosphere and kindness of all the personell are a plus. Note that you can get here specialities from a few regions of Italy. I definitely recommend it to travellers who target real taste, joyful environment and value for money.
