Mixture of Greek and Italian food. Small, but busy. Recommend reservations. We had 2 sprimp dishes (1 with scallops, too). Large portions. Finished with delicious canoli and baklava. Good, reasonably priced house wine. Took home frozen pasticio and a jar of olives. Definitely plan on returning.
P.S. Free parking in the rear

This may be one of our family’s new favorite restaurants.

Our second visit with friends, just as great as the first.

Calamari is fine, tzatziki with grilled pita is fantastic.

Eggplant parm, chicken parm, Mediterranean pasta, pepperoni pizza, ravioli - all were delicious, large portions too. Excellent cannoli and tiramisu.

Service was great and the owner is wonderful, so warm and welcoming!

Love this place.

Ben and one of his grandsons got together recently to discuss some investment matters. Ben suggested Manoli Canoli because of the quiet and private nature of the restaurant. The place doesn’t look like much, inside or from the street, but the atmosphere is perfect for such a meeting.

The menu is very extensive, and the quality, in Ben’s experience, is very, very good. The tumble down appearance from outside is quite misleading, as the premises are well maintained and spotless. It reminds Ben of the dozen or so unimpressive eateries lining the street in London’s Lavendar Hill district. None will win a spot in the Journal of Architecture or Wine Spectator, but each seems better than the last when it comes to culinary excellence. The first time Ben had a meal there, he was reminded of the days long gone when he was “baching it” while Mrs Too and the kids were visiting her family in the Boston area. Theyoffer everything from a great burger to a fine lamb chop dinner including homemade tiramisu, all at a price which is a very pleasant surprise.

On this occasion, Ben ordered sweet Italian sausage over linguine. Grandson had a plate of pasta in marinara sauce. Service was quick and polite, the lunch was great, and the entire experience was memorable.

Manoli Canoli is a great favorite of locals, and will be so with you. You really ought to try it. Rare for the neighborhood, there is plenty of free parking in the large lot behind the building, and a rear entrance which makes entry and exit easy, even in inclement weather.

We always enjoy our time here. The food atmosphere, and service are very good. Tonight we took a friend, and he loved it. The manager, Nikos, is fabulous. He's always so inviting...
