Paul Manno's Restaurant Review

: Decorated with Rat Pack and sports memorabilia, the dining room at this Chesterfield restaurant can get loud with convivial conversation. There's always a Manno or two at hand --- dad at the door, son and/or mom in the kitchen --- to watch over things and greet the regulars, including professional athletes and business dealmakers, as well as those who happen to wander in from nearby shops during the week. When the rigatoni with Sunday gravy is on special, go for it; we also recommend the tomato ragoût with sausage and the baby-back ribs. Among favorites on the dinner menu are the cannelloni, sea bass and rack of lamb. Generous portions all but guarantee you’ll have enough to box up for another meal, especially if you want to try the fried calamari as an appetizer or the chocolate cake or cannoli for dessert. The wine list aligns nicely with the dishes. On weekends, reservations are a must.

Horrible experience at over priced restaurant
by bmbrinson85 on Thu Jan 12, 2012 1:04 pm
I visited Paul Manno Cafe and did not have a good experience. I dont like to sit so close to the table next to me. The restaurant is also very noisy, not a good place for a romantic dinner. My waiter was not always ready and available to serve me. The food was over cooked and over priced. Just not a good combination. I would not recommend this place to anyone. The food was not authentic Italian. I believe you are suppose to get what you pay for and I definiately paid for more than what I got! Upset about my experience I will never return or refer anyone there. The only reason I have rated the restaurant with one star is because it is required in order to post my review. I personally give no stars. Not even half.
