For years I have visited Manly Italian, westernised rather than regionally authentic, it's consistent, large servings, the restaurant at times is quite busy and noisy, if you can forgive it's interiors and appreciate its offerings you won't be disappointed.

My fav place in Manly to go, some friends that were with us haven't been before and loved it. It was a great night by all lucky we booked as it was a sat night. Other dinner hadn't booked so had to wait.

Place was packed when we visited, but a table was found for the 6 of us, in an efficient and professional manner. Could not fault the meal or service, or seating.

We arrived with the expectation of having an authentic Italian dining experience. Sadly this was not to be, while the staff were adequate the food less than ordinary. Garlic bread was a slice of toasted roll spread sparingly with garlic butter. Tried to order oysters (not available? On a Mother's Day weekend) we had galic prawns they were so so,... More
