This restaurant could step up their game in the kitchen. Certain foods I enjoyed there some I did not. My poor husband didn't enjoy his meal because they screwed it up so much. He ordered baked ziti which was loaded with processed cheese.... he ordered some pasta fagioli soupin ( had to send it back). I had their sausage soup... More

Who would name a pizza place after a disgusting plant eating mammal?At least try to make the place seem to be Italian.I am from New York so I have a good idea what pizza should taste like.This pizza is an oily piece of limp dough which has the consistency of Velveeta as it's cheese topping.

I have eaten pizza at several places and stopped here because of all the hoopla about it being the best. Although it was OK it was by far not the best. Boca Lupa was far better but the wait in winter can be a big drag. Manatees was very average.

Sometimes you just want a pizza so we headed to Manatee's. This very much reminded us of our favorite hometown pizza place...nothing fancy just good pizza and the like. Our Server, Tiffany, came to the table right away to drop off menus and take our drink orders. There was an all girl staff and they were doing a great job!... More

The pizza is very good here and so was the service, last year. This time was not since we never got waited on. The waitress was chatty with her friends and on her phone around the corner. We got soda and menus but that was it. I went inside to complain and they apologized and comped our sodas. What a... More

I'm not sure if they have a wood oven or if they add a hint of smoke flavour but the pizza is excellent! 5 of us shared a couple pizzas and had drinks. Inexpensive and excellent service too. A local referred us here and said the wait is long but worth it when they do half price Thursdays.

We ate here the other night and didn't realize it was half price night. For the price the food (pizza) was excellent. The four of us all had different individual pizzas tht we shared. All were excellent and the drinks were also very reasonable. It wa crowded and we had to wait bout 20 minutes but was worth the wait.

We like to try local pizza when traveling and this was very good pizza. We ordered the thin crust and it was perfect with just the right amount of toppings.

We really like eating at Manatees. The pizza is just how we like it - thin, the garlic and cheese bread is out of this world and the lasagna is wonderful. They also have a very nice wait staff. They go out of their way to make sure that everything is satisfactory or they make sure that it is. We've... More

I could tell as soon as the waitress brought the pizza by the Excellent aroma, this was gonna be the bomb. I do have to say my taste buds danced with joy but I still couldn't put my finger on certain ingredients. A blast to eat this pizza. The pizza, was full of homemade flavors.
