Incredible dinner. My favorite place in Manhattan beach.
Great food!! Nice setting and highly recommend for a special night out.
Lovely dinner. Beautiful evening.
Love this place. Always so delicious. Great service!
So appreciate a casual spot with great eats. Service was awesome - definitely going back again and next time saving room for dessert. Keep it up guys! This place is a winner
Average food at high prices. We ordered sparkling wine and the glass they brought us was flat with no bubbles - server probably should have noticed that. They replaced it promptly with no fuss though. Squash blossoms were very good. Bucatini was good. Osso buco was not so good - luke warm with a bland broth - it was missing the deep rich flavor and unctuous sauce that is characteristic of osso buco. Finally, I have to note the manager was not wearing a mask at all even though he was mostly indoors and going into the kitchen. Not a great value, and there are at least 3 better Italian restaurants in the South Bay.
Atmosphere and service we’re both amazing. Unfortunately food was subpar, at best. Thanks
Friendly staff. Food was heavy on the salt, which over powered and masked the taste.
Great vibe, service, food! Cioppino was delicious! Pricey but worth it. No cocktails but they do have a great selection of wines.
Seated outside nice Food great. Server was very busy. A little expensive for pasta.
Splendid environment great service and outstanding food quality.
Great food great service
I really wanted to love this place. I eat pasta once every 6 months so I was looking forward to an extremely satisfying cheat meal. Food was mediocre at best. At its price point I expected to be blown away. They obviously do not have enough staff as no one offered me another glass of wine and there were piles of dirty dishes stacked on the divider for the outdoor patio and the road. Won't be back.
We had a lovely dinner outside. Nice variety on the menu, something for everybody. All the staff is very friendly. This is a popular neighborhood place. Reservations are highly recommended, especially on the weekends.
I went a while ago when they opened and wasn’t wowed. We tried it again and had a great night. Good food, wine and great staff. We’ll be back soon!
Outstanding food quality, great servuce
The food was absolutely incredible. There were six of us and each dish was excellent. The ambience made us feel like we were in a small town in Italy.
Great food and all the staff were amazing. Will be back.
Jordan was superb. He was attentive and his attention to detail was impressive. Jordan made us feel welcome and made sure we were comfortable. He has a good sense of humor, which is essential for a front-line worker. Overall, the restaurant has made sure that it has a culture of politeness and friendliness. That is a sign of a restaurant that truly cares for its customers. Keep up the good work. Would like to see some more wine selections, especially reds. It can only enhance the experience. May want to add more vegan or vegetarian selections too, to the appetizer and main course. With a health conscious populace, more vegetarian dishes are welcome.
Service was outstanding, food was delicious, presentation was excellent! It was a very enjoyable dining experience..
Local Italian - high end quality, feel and service
This is a neighborhood go-to for us. Always very good.
This is now my second time at Stay within the last two weeks and, every time it does not disappoint. The past two visits I have had Katie as our server and she's the kindest waitress ever. Besides the good food, her service was a big reason why we came back. Would definitely recommend someone to go to Stay.
Great food & service. Staff is amazing.
Excellent food specially the Branzino fish.
I’ll be back.
Great! Excellent! Wonderful!
Besides fantastic specials and menu there is always warm and friendly service
Fabulous dinner- we had Chicken Piccata- loved it, Farm Fresh Tomatoes, Prosciutto & Melon - so delicious! It was a beautiful evening outside dining was fabulous- highly recommend!
Great staff! Food was authentic Italian. Beautiful evening !
Great food and excellent service
Everything was great - food, ambiance, service (although the waitress' assistant, spilled water on one of my guests). We were glad it wasn't another beverage.
It was great on a beautiful evening outside. We had a great time.
Food was good.
Only complaint-the Slay Chardonnay was almost undrinkable at $18 a glass!
Every item we ordered was very good. My party of 3 shared everything.
we had a fabulous experience. The server was prompt, friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend it!
Quaint, airy, lovely local Italian restaurant. Excellent food and nicely crafted wine list. Always great service, especially server Jose.
From Michelle the host, to Jacob the Mgr and especially our server Katy were fabulous and the food was on point!
Great outdoor setting adjacent to a Manhattan Beach walk street, wonderful food and service. What's not to like about Slay Italian Kitchen?
Some of the best food and service in the south bay
Great meal. Had the cioppino - terrific broth and chock full of tasty morsels. A little on the pricey side (90, including a couple Peroni and my share if a couple apps + dessert). The apple / cherry pie with vanilla ice cream was terrific.
