Great pizza. However, the prices have doubled since last visit in February. Pizza used to be 6k which is already expensive and they now charge 12k NGN! That is almost 40 USD for one pizza!!! Crazy prizes no wonder why there are no other guests! I was a regular customer but am not going back. A shame...

I love the appetizer menu, the artistry how they serve it, pizza is really the best! they have pool side to where you can drink, they have rooms as well. The restaurant is not so big, but visual arts are so interesting, I love the dessert!!!!!!

They're not polite. It's a good place. But I'm not sure if I want to visit again. Pizza is very good. But their lasagne has too much cheese and less meat.

For pizza, this restaurant is the best. The interiors are nice, though restaurant itself is not so big place, but the menu is superb! from appetizer selection to pizza and desserts, so Italian. You will not regret coming over here!

The service went off very well, they just took options like instead of vegetables they could give us Rice along with the Chicken we had ordered, the surprise was when we saw the bill, all options offered were billed separately, which we protested , paid the rest which was not less as this restaurant is overpriced, the waiter did not...

Manuela's came highly recommended to us so we tried it for Valentines Day lunch! The pizza is very authentic - thin crust and not too cheesy. Maybe, for my taste, being American, I would have preferred a bit more cheese! But their favors come from the excellent toppings, favorite was the Seafood pizza! The beer is always served in a...

The only thing I tried in Manuela's is pizza. The pizza was fresh and delicious, the best I've tried in Lagos. As every other restaurant in Lagos, of course, it's overpriced! But the prices here are definitely not the highest in L.

This restaurant is part of a residence-hotel like business. Its location is a bit clumsy as there is no sign to guide you, except the letters MR on the gate and the house number. The food is overpriced and the shocker was when I was informed that they will be charging me VAT at 20%. They have no functioning electronic... More

In the center of V.I. hidden in a full of trees place they serve excellent Italian dishes. Pizza is very good but risotto porcini is one of the best you can taste in Lagos. Value for money, special section for smokers. Their tiramisu is the best you can have in Lagos.

I felt like having a pizza again after last year's tragic experience in this place. Same same with an additional 20% on your bill, supposedly due to tax increase, but I believe it is rather due to temperature increase, sun must have hit their brain
