Manalu is a new authentic Italian restaurant by Chef/Owner Marco Pontecorvo. The name was to combine all three of his family members names. MA for Marco, NA for Naomi, his daughter, and LU for Lucia, his wife. Manalu's goal is to bring a taste of Italy and a touch of Naples in the town, by serving authentic Italian cuisine and the original pizza Napoletana cooked in a brick oven. The atmosphere is very cozy and warm, perfect for family and friends. Manalu` also has a full bar and happy hour Mon-Fri from 4pm to 7pm. Happy hour also includes a food menu with delicious appetizers.

    Exceptional service, beautiful outdoor ambiance and incredible food. We all had different variations of the great pastas available. Clean white table cloth adds such class but always wowed by the service. Reservations always recommended for this Italian cuisine treasure!

    Manalu is a gem! My girls love this restaurant. It is their new favorite. This is an excellent restaurant for families. They have a delicious menu and the service is top notch! The hostess and greeting staff are friendly. Even on a very busy Sunday afternoon the chef came around to the tables to say hello and ask how the meal was. We will definitely be back!

    Manalu Italian Restaurant is so good that I drive 40 minutes to go there. This time I met a friend/business associate who is also 40 miles away. It was their first time at Manalu. The feedback was A+. Marco's menu options are fabulous and the food never disappoints. The sangria is a must. The calamari is fabulous. All the pasta is delicious. I have been there dozens of times and will return dozens more.
