Thanks so much to everyone at Casa Manini for a simply superb dinner & all round experience. The ambience & service were warm, and the food was excellent, from drinks & starters through mains & dessert. It's a great place for family, groups of friends,...even a cosy date. Will definitely be back!More

We booked to Casa Manini to celebrate our son's birthday and was so pleased we picked the place. Ambiance - cosy, homey, family friendly Service - Very personal. Fiona and her staff were very attentive n even the chef came out to chat with us....Food - We ordered the lagsane (chef's mother's recipe, not rich at all but delicious), crab linguini and the Eggplant parmigiana and the mozarella balls......every dish was delicious. Will definitely be back.More

Went there to celebrate a friend’s birthday. We were a big group with 4 young kids. The place is kid friendly. Love the lasagna, beef, pasta and of course the desserts. Overall, great food, cosy atmosphere, super friendly and nice staff.

I've been here several times, and my dinner last Friday was no different: Great ambience, attentive and friendly service, and a great variety of delicious Italian offerings - well, the ones I've tried so far. Love starting off with the Buratta Conprosciutto di Parma, and...the Carnivore pizza is a must-have if you're in a group. The Lasagne Classica is a good portion without ever feeling too heavy - the tangy bolognese helps ensure this. If you're craving a more traditional pasta dish, the Rigatoni Al Brasato Di Manzo for sure. The braised wagyu beef sauce is thick, meaty, and satisfying. And the Sorbetto al Limone is the perfect ending, as all that creamy lemony goodness really helps cleanse the palate - served in a whole lemon too #legitMore

Chanced upon Casa Manini on Chope and decided to try it out based on the many good reviews. We were a little late for our reservation so I rang them and they were so kind to hold our table. As soon as we stepped in,...you could sense this homely vibe. I personally loved how the restaurant was decorated! It’s a small restaurant so the tables were quite close together, but we didn’t mind that. We were greeted with warm smiles (even during a busy service). We ordered the Aglio Olio and Crab linguine with a portion of Truffle Fries to share. It’s quite hard to find good truffle fries and they nailed it. Crispy and every fry just the right amount of truffle. My Fiancé really enjoyed it. I enjoyed the Crab Linguine — cooked perfectly with a delightful aroma. Ended the evening with their chocolate cake, I was thoroughly surprised. Nicely baked and paired with Vanilla Ice Cream. Yum! We will definitely be back to try the other dishes. Tip: if you are driving, do come by a little earlier as there are limited parking lots. Thank you Casa Manini, see you soon! 😊More

My group of 13 friends came here on a Sunday afternoon for a baby shower. I booked via Chope app and corresponded via email with Fiona. She was very thoughtful and hospitable in making accomodations for such a big group. The decor was really nice...and made a lovely backdrop for group photos! The service from the staff was excellent - patient, accomodating and prompt. The food was really good and the portions were really generous for the pizza. Price wise is also very reasonable at about $20-28 pax. Would definitely come back again to enjoy the authentic well-made food and sincere service!More
