“Totally unexpected”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

I live in Boca and with as many Italian choices as there are in south Florida, nothing comes close to Manuel's. It's a bit expensive, but well worth it. Food was delicious (had the tortellini with pesto, my husband had the pork Milanese with a side order of pasta in vodka sauce, the bread with the olive oil and basil was to die for. Service was very professional. Looking forward to visiting g'vile again, just to eat here!

“The very best Italian in Gainesville area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We had dinner, including salad, pasta, fish dish. All were well prepared and tasty. Fresh ingredients, generous portions. Service is always good, setting is great for taking your honey to dinner. Wine is also invariably carefully chosen, not too expensive and very good. My highest recommendation!

“Love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

The food was fantastic with service to match and I can't wait to go back! The owner of this place owned one of my favorite Gville area restaurants of all time (Daniella's), so I'm glad he is still around, still serving great food!! Thanks Manuel!

“Great Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

Reasonable prices for gourmet Italian. Food was delicious. This is a tiny place, so my only complaint is that we were so close to the table next to use that they felt comfortable asking about our food.

Good and attentive service. Very nice winelist. Bring a small flashlight to read the menu in this romantic atmosphere.
