We frequently come to Paul Manos and are never disappointed. The rack of lamb is the best in the city. The dinner salad with salami is also not to be missed. They heat the dishes table side which assures your food is always hot and fresh. In our minds this is the best Italian in west county.

This is a wonderful gem hidden in a very boring strip mall. Don't let its surroundings fool you. The place is very warm and welcoming, and the food is fabulous. One of the best in St. Louis area. Difficult to get into without a reservation--so plan ahead.

Went with my wife for nice weekend date without having to go the the Hill. Food was quite good and the deserts were excellent. Worth a trip. Cost was moderate.

I have lived in Chesterfield for 20 years after living in the SF Bay Area and growing up in LA. I have also traveled quite a bit in Italy. This is a great restaurant. It is comparable to Tony's and is the best place to eat in the area. Do not miss it as I did for 20 years. On... More

The food was just alright. The prices were very high. The waiter (Avery) was very rude. Tried to tell the owner Paul Jr. and he didn't care. I guess this is what happens when the son takes over. Paul Sr. would never let his waiters be rude. This is a hit or miss place.

We enjoyed dinner at Paul Manno's more than any we've had in St. Louis. And that's saying a lot as we're picky! My husband had scallops which were absolutely delicious and I had linguini with seafood. So very delicious and we've made a reservation to celebrate our anniversary there. We highly recommend it.

Paul Manno's never fails to delight our senses with exceptional fare and good service. To top it off the restaurant has a good wine list. The only downside is at times it is difficult to get a reservation which proves its popularity with many in St. Louis.

What a great homey atmosphere!! I love this place, the food is so well prepared and presented. I had the fish in tomato sauce, and boy was it good. We had such a delightful time with two other couples. Everyone's food was just superb. Bravo!! keep up the good work!!
