Manetta’s Ristorante opened in 1992 and was founded by Phyllis and Mario Manetta. The Manetta’s came to New York City from Pignataro Interamna, a small town outside of Rome. With Phyllis’ lifelong passion for cooking and Mario’s years of experience in construction, it seemed almost inevitable that this couple would open a restaurant. The establishment was built entirely by Mario and his sons, while the divine flavors were crafted by Phyllis in the kitchen.
To this day, Manetta’s Ristorante is family owned and operated by the Manetta family. We have been serving the Long Island City neighborhood for over twenty years and our traditional Italian Cuisine never fails to satisfy. Our daily specials feature wholesome ingredients and delightful flavors that you can only get at Manetta’s. We offer a one of a kind comfortable dining experience, in which customers experience excellent service while still feeling as if they are dining at grandma’s house.
Whether you’re just in the neighborhood or you want a nice night out, Manetta’s is the place for you. So stop in soon and make yourself right at home.
