Italian
You don’t have to fly to Italy for authentic Italian cuisine, just spend an evening at Manzoni Restaurant in Glen Park. The food is delicious. The Tuscan decor is warm and inviting. The wine list is comprised of a wide variety of Italian wines and the owner is always on hand to make sure you have everything you need for an enjoyable evening.

Food is always excellent. The ravioli is homemade and melts in your mouth! The ambiance is upscale, yet still has the feel and friendliness of a neighborhood restaurant. A gem. One of my favorites!

We have been there before. Always good food. This time reservation was for 730pm. They were packed. Very slow service. Took 45 mins for appetizers. Hour for dinner, after ordering. But they were very busy. I understand. Usually we eat there at 6 or 630. And always fast.

This is our second time at Manzoni, but our friend goes their all the time. We are very happy with dinner there and want to go more often - the food is delicious, the staff is friendly and welcoming, and the restaurant decor is quiet and attractively designed.

I had just landed from NY to see my Mom and she spontaneously said “let’s get Italian nearby.” The whole experience was a lovely surprise. The food was spectacular throughout, the vibe was upbeat and fun, and our waitress treated us like VIPs and was super kind and friendly! Big cheers for Manzoni. We will be back!

It's always a pleasure to go to Manzoni--the food is great and the service, if anything, is better. My greatest challenge is to remember to try things from the seasonal menu, rather than going back to the dishes I always go for (pappardelle and filleto di maiale, I'm looking at you). A good place for groups or for a quiet dinner -- so glad it's right in my neighborhood.

The food, as always, was tasty and well prepared & presented.
Unfortunately, the noise level made conversation impossible even though we were seated beyond a little archway near the bar—probably the quietest area in the house. It’s too bad we are becoming a society of rude & entitled people!

This is a neighborhood gem on a weeknight but I would avoid weekends in the future.

Delicious as always. I had the fantastic Pollo Marinato al Griglia and my cousin the irresistible Ravioli all’s Verdura Corina. The salads are also wonderfully complex and interesting. Too full for dessert but will be back.

We're visitors but this is a nice neighborhood place. Beautifully made and dressed salads. Husband had lovely light gnocchi with a creamy truffle sauce; tasty but needed something else for color and interest. I had a super penne with peas, sausage crumbles in a tomato cream sauce that was spot on...seasoned right, sauce wasn't heavy...loved it. Simple atmosphere, no crowding of tables...nice employees! If we lived here, we'd be regulars.

Even though I live in Glen Park, and wish I had a good Italian restaurant close by, this is not it. The small space was packed and the noise level was so high we could barely hear ourselves talk. The service was fair at best, as it took a long time to pay when we indicated we were in a hurry to leave. I ordered salmon with pureed spinach penne. I had hoped for am actual piece of salmon to be present, but the salmon pieces were apparently pureed with the spinach, and not even noticeable. The spinach and penne was so-so, and very monotonous. I could only eat half. My fellow diners' meals were no better, the ravioli and spaghetti were humdrum. For what we had, the cost was very high. I won't return here soon.

Menu sounded delicious but food mediocre. Favas bean risotto tasteless, beans MIA, seemed to be made with minute rice. Swordfish ok...more polenta than swordfish. Wine at $12 a glass... practically tasteless. I usually don't bother to write reviews but this warranted one.

Manzoni is the quintessential neighborhood tratto. The pasta is always al dente, the sauces are always spot-on, the wait staff is always affable but not intrusive and the space makes you feel like you're in a tratto in the Tuscan hills. What else could you want?

Always friendly and prompt service! Although food has always been in general fairly good, we noticed during our recent dinner there that our chosen dishes had improved, don’t know if there is a new Chef!
Manzoni, the owner is frequently there to graciously welcome us! Manzoni’s is an asset to Glen Park!

Quality of food is very excellent...if you are too close to the next table it is too loud...the price of "liquids" is scandalosly, embarassingly high---$13.50 for a glass of average wine & shockingly, $7.50 for a bottle of Pellegrino...is the rent that high or is there just no shame???
