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.
