The food is wonderful! I like to describe the gnocchi as little pillows from heaven....Everything is so fresh and prepared perfectly. The wine list is very good as well. It is a very small place with a cozy, intimate feel. My husband and I have enjoyed a number of special and "just because" occasions at Manuel's.

Gainesville has a number of great downtown restaurants. We like to go after the Hippodrome theater performance. Manuel , himself, greeted us with a big hug and his son waved from behind the Chefs area as well. Everything is cooked fresh, from scratch, and in view. You see it and smell it and just love to eat it !

The food was good, but not great enough to warrant the price. Cozy to the point of claustraphopic.
Almost $20 for gnocchi with no salad? Too pretentious for us. Noisy, very tight seating.

This small intimate restaurant lives up to its reputation. Out meal was outstanding, waiter helpful, owner stopped by to greet us and welcome us. I had pasta with shrimp and cream truffle sauce. My partner enjoyed veal porcini. We shared a chocolate dessert confection. We loved out meal and will definitely make a return visit next time we are in Gainesville.

This is a little restaurant that holds only about a dozen tables but the food and the service is outstanding. We had a table for six and everyone raved about their appetizer, dinner and dessert.
Can't believe I have lived in Gainesville 3 years and only found it because it's number one on Tripadvisor.
