Food was superb. I like the hazelnut cake.
They need to work on the menu, you need someone to help you go through it
Unfortunately, it seemed they were short staffed and we had a horrible experience because of it.
The server brought me a Pinot noir instead of Pinot Grigio, then we never got our appetizer. Then my salmon came out raw.
It was just not good.
Manzo’s was tucked away in the back of Eataly which was really nice to be away from all the hustle and bustle. We tried the prosciutto which was great with the homemade mozzarella, gnocchi and Brussels sprouts. We also tried a dish called “teste” which was pretty spicy and not my favorite thing but tasting new things is always something fun and educational.
Excellent dinner with great menu choices. Especially love the homemade pasta and fresh meats. The short rib with polenta dish was exceptional. The pesto pasta dish with sausage was fresh and flavorful. Would recommend and definitely will be back.
The food and wine were great- so was the service! Only downside— The couple next to us was loud and annoying! The tables were pretty close together so we were able to hear their conversations.
Were recommended and the food did not disappoint. We were a little disappointed in the service. Our waiter took a long time to initially greet us. He did recommend good dishes which we loved. The food came out exceptionally fast and was delicious. He never came back for a 2nd drink and a 2nd waiter came and offered us dessert which was also delicious. Then after 10-15 minutes we had to ask a table busser for our check. A great restaurant with a lot of potential but need improvement on the service side.
Superb pasta dishes. Able to get a res the same day for 2. Not inexpensive but the quality will bring us back- no pasta drowning in red sauce here!
not more many kinds of meat as use to have
Expertly cooked steaks, fresh made pasta. I love the seasonal changes in the menu that keep this place from ever getting stale. A very well done wine list and great variety for all tastes. Not the least expensive place around but you do get what you pay for
Everything was wonderful. Our server had good suggestions, was knowledgeable about the wine list, and was fun to talk to. My sisters and I had a great lunch!
Went for a Wednesday dinner at Manzo with two friends and we had a fantastic time. Service was quick and responsive, the food was all top quality. The wagyu steak was a great value and some of the best beef I've ever had. The cocktails were creative and tasty. Would definitely go again, and would recommend for anyone looking for a high quality Italian experience.
Our server was knowledgeable and efficient even though she was by herself for the first 30 min. The pappardelle with beef ragu was one of the best pastas I've ever had. Wonderful lunch.
Considering it’s pretty much in a market, I felt like I was at a restaurant. The food came out quick with THE freshest, lightest pasta ever. I usually HATE mushrooms but had a mushroom ragu that was incredible!
Good food at Jean George like prices and quality but Red Lobster like ambiance and service. Not bad but not worth it. The renovation was a mistake making the restaurant feel like it is in a mall instead of a quiet pleasant place like before.
Steaks was outstanding but wow on the overpriced tiny appetizer portions. Wine list great but pricing mark-ups for things for sale in Eataly pretty obnoxious.
I would return for business and a write off but not for a group of friends.
This place is WAY overrated. It is a tourist TRAP. Do NOT go there. Its steaks are a joke. 58$ for a NY strip that’s the worse I’ve ever eaten. It came at the wrong temperature too. The whole place is a joke. Portions are small and WAY overpriced for what they are. We paid 250$ for a dinner of two that was the least value I’ve EVER gotten out of a dinner.
Manzo's service and food was excellent. Their GM was very accommodating and provided a free appetizer and glass of prosecco because they were running behind with seating reservations. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
We had the good fortune to book an evening when Daniel Boulud was the guest chef. his pasta dish of squid ink pasta with clams was fantastic as was the beef short ribs with polenta. The only disappointment was the dessert. The cake was dry and uninteresting with fresh blueberries on top. Not very exciting!
LOUD space with unattentuve service . The pasta was fresh and good (tho it sat under a barely there sauce). There is nothing else about my recent visit to Manzo’s that would remotely tempt me into giving them a 2nd chance.
This is a great place to stop in after the endless shopping and browsing of the rest of the Eataly store. Make sure to ask for the somelier for a wine recommendation. She recommended the "No Name" Barolo, and we are now fans of this one. Many thanks to the the upbeat and happy staff! We'll be back!
Great experience! Have eaten here many times on business and socially. Staff is very helpful. I’m Celiac and pasta is excellent.
Manzo's pastas are fresh but overpriced and served in a pretty noisy environment outside the hubbub that is Eataly located in the Flatiron District of Manhattan. Everything that "walked" past us looked good. Desserts were enjoyable but overpriced at $11 each before tax and tip
The space was absolutely freezing. Food was fine and waiter very nice, but the temperature of the room was unacceptable. Had to eat with our hats and scarves on and rushed through the meal and didn’t order dessert as a result.
Manzo was excellent. Steak was incredible.
Food was fantastic, if I would make a complain the problem has been the cold in the ambient. Thanks for the special dinner
Went for a special birthday. It was an unusually cold day and the restaurant was using an uninsulated part of the restaurant to accommodate the holiday volume. It was so cold that we needed to wear coats. The waiters were dismissive and the one small space heater was at another table. After the appetizers and pasta came almost simultaneously, we asked the kitchen to slow down. Then when the entrees came the sides didn’t arrive until we were done. No one in management seemed to care. They said they would take the sides off of the bill, but they showed up anyway. I guess with Mario gone, the machine is not humming very well.
The food was tasty.
The place was so cold we were seated at the back and we have to wear our winter jacket to eat -so the food might be good however we did not enjoy it . It was that DAMN Cold . It was almost at the end they placed a heater
Our food was excellent. Great service. We were not so excited about the desert. Highly highly recommended. Loved our waiter.
I have celiac disease and Manzo is one of the few places that truly understands how to prepare gluten free pasta ( separate clean colinder, water). Great staff. Love this place!
Food wonderful, ambiance great. Our only complaint is that the room temperature cold
First time I ate at restaurant since remodel .... my party was seated at a cramp corner table in the back... portable heater in my back.... draft from walls and window also at my back. You wold think with renovation they would have also dealt with the architectural problems with the building... restaurant at this price point should not have outside drafts and portable heaters blowing on your back ....... not happy with the space !!!! food is fine if not good... Space is terrible ... as this was a holiday gift experience for my staff... I was embarrassed by the space and were they sat us ....... not happy with staff, professional manors of front staff and disappearing waiters .... will sit at the bar for drink and food again - yes... but will never take a group for sit down dinner again
my sister loves meat, we have been previously and enjoyed
Food and service excellent
Enjoyed our visit... gnocchi was delicious!!! The service was excellent and our meal very nice.
We are up from Florida for the Holidays! This Eataly was suggested to us multiple times! We had a outstanding dinner and wine! Glad we made reservation through OpenTable!
WOW. What a great meal! Excellent steak! Excellent sides.
Treat yourself and get a steak for 2!!
We were seated early and the food was great. We arrived well before our reservation and the hostess seated us without any problem.
Decent experience! Not worth the hype.
Instead of a ristorante, Manzo has become a trattoria. The atmosphere is casual and noisy—loud music and loud conversations. The food and wine continue to be at the ristorante level and the price is still expensive, but the atmosphere doesn’t match. The service is less attentive too. We will now go someplace else to have a nice meal.
