“Great find”
Reviewed 11 July 2012

We were part of a mini-family reunion when eight of us went, without reservations on a Friday night, to Menaro's and asked if we could be seated. The restaurant was busy, but no one batted an eye. We were immediately seated in a smaller dining room and a table for eight was quickly set up. One waitress handled us all evening wtih grace, humor and excellent service. She didn't blink when we asked for five separate checks, even when all the parties weren't seated together at the table. We all agreed our dinners -- quite an assortment -- were excellent. The place was also quite attractive. After we told local relatives, several piped up that they, too, enjoyed it and contrasted it favorably with the Italian chain restaurant next door. An excellent choice!

“Good food, good service”
Reviewed 29 December 2011

We went to Manero's during the Christmas holiday and there were 7 in our party. I was impressed with the prompt and attentive service we received. The restaurant was very busy and there were many large groups. Sometimes service and food fall below par under such circumstances, but that was not the case at Manero's. We all enjoyed our dinners. The portions are generous. The salad included with our entree was very good. There were several bread lovers in our group and the warm bread (served with a dish of olive oil, balsamic vinegar and herbs for dipping) kept on coming. The noise level was a little high that night, but that might not be a problem when it's not so busy.

The food was too heavy. The service and atmosphere is fine the restaurant next door has better prices and better food.

“NIce little surprise!”
Reviewed 1 November 2011

Happened to see a review of this restaurant in the local paper.....looked good, thought that we'd check it out one night.......happy we did!!!
Located on sperry road, in the middle of chain restaurant mayhem, is a refreshing change from the typical surrounding restaurants.
We had a couple of cocktails, the hendrick's collins i ordered was syrupy sweet and tasted more like lemonade, that was the only complaint of the evening.
For appetizers, we had calamari and the provolone marinara....a simple twist on the traditional mozzarella sticks.......both were crisp, fresh tasting WITHOUT any excessive soggy oil lingering on the food or plate. the marinara that acompanied both dishes was simple and delicious with at true, strong tomato taste.
For dinner we share a pizza and a pasta dish. We had the penne bolognese with an addtion of 2 meatballs. The sauce was loaded with bits of italian sausage and beef. It had just the right amount of spiciness. The meatball were typical italian style, baked and not fried as they had no crust and a simple beefy/meatball flavor without any heavy oregano/garlic/basil flavors....simple, yet good.
The pizza was the highlight! Pizza riviera....a white pizza with a thin, but not too thin, crust was topped with pears, arugula, fried proscuitto and bits of cheese. AWESOME!!!
Skipped dessert and took half of the pizza home.....we were too full!
Manero's is a great, tradition, mom & pop style italian kitchen.....give it a try!
PS......they had great ambient music playing too!!!

“Yummy pizza and salad”
Reviewed 27 October 2011

This was out first time here.. we sat that the bar. bartender was super friendly and advised us of all the specials for Wednesday night. 7 bucks off a bottle of wine... SOLD! we shared the chopped salad - this salad is so tasty i will order one for myself and not share! We also ordered the onion and mushroom pizza.. large pizza, thin crust very tasty and had leftovers for the next day! There was a guy singing old songs - Rat pack type. he was entertaining while not being overly loud. We will go back again.. The bar area is large but feels small and quaint... will choose this place over carabbas and outback next door for sure...cheers.
