The food was excellent....the service was wonderful, especially since the restaurant was very busy for a Tuesday. It was our first time there and we will certainly be back!
My cousin's and I enjoyed our first reunion since the pandemic. It was a lovely three hours at my favorite Italian restaurant in Frederick. I had the ravioli special stuffed with mushrooms and complemented with shrimp, spinach, and blush sauce. It was magnificent. I love that the chef always stops at my table to greet me. I pay respects to him and his wonderful creations.
Delicious and great service. Fredericks hidden secret!
Recommended by a local friend, and we were not disappointed! This is old world Italian service. Everyone cares at Manalu! The food reminded me of dining in Italy. The chef/owner visiting our table was a treat. Please don’t change a single thing! Perfect!
When scheduling on Open Table, I had marked that this was an anniversary dinner. After a perfect meal and paying the bill, our party was asked to stay to speak with the manager. He brought out a dessert tray with Happy Anniversary spelled out in raspberry sauce. Great ending!
Another fabulous meal. Haven’t been inside since before the pandemic. I’ve missed their food!
The whole dining experience was excellent. From service, food, and price Manalu was top-notch in every way.
The food is fantastic! Highly recommend! We will be returning.
Everything was fabulous. Was a great birthday celebration. Food is quality and efficient, wonderful staff.
Not only the best Italian restaurant in Frederick but maybe the best overall eatery in town.
Another wonderful experience at Manalu! Outstanding service, ambiance, and the food is the finest Italian I’ve experienced in the DC metro area. Brought my family for a meal last night, and so glad I did. The wait staff is exemplary, as well. Manalu is busy for a reason! Thank you again fior yet another outstanding dining experience.
I really enjoyed the food and the family friendly atmosphere. It was a bit busy.
Always a wonderful experience! Our server is always polite, friendly and very patient.
The place was packed and the wait between courses was quite long.
Always an excellent choice when deciding where to have a celebration or a bite to eat.
