This review is as much about the experience as the food. If you want variety and/or fancy, go elsewhere. The food is basically spaghetti and meatballs. No frills. But all from scratch and made with care and decades of practice. The experience comes from a remarkable man named Vito who, I believe, owns the establishment. He is 86 years young... More

We visited Manzari's Grill for spaghetti supper Monday night. With six adults and five children, we were well served and everyone had the "white" or the "red" spaghetti plate. As usual, the food was delicious and the service fast and efficient.

Manzari's Grill is a small bar with off street parking. It's a local favorite for having a drink. They have a daily spaghetti dinner thats VERY affordable and EXCELLENT. It comes with enough pasta for two people, two meatballs, and 2 slices of bread w/butter. You can order a single dinner with extra meatballs and bread and it will EASILY... More

The pasta, sauce, and meatballs are perfect every single time we have it, and it's a real treat being served this excellent spaghetti by Vito, Joe, and Chris! The neopolitan (1/2 oil and garlic, 1/2 red sauce) is unbelievable! Can only attribute the mediocre reviews to the fact that this is not your typical spaghetti but an old family recipe... More

Spaghetti R us....is the motto with this bar. It's pretty good, nothing to write home about, but you can do worse for food around this town.

There is so much different about this tiny place it is hard to rate it. First: The Choices: 2 versions of spaghetti and a couple of sandwich choices is all you get. No menu. The waiter will tell you in 30 seconds what you choices are. Second: The Food: We both had spaghetti (their specialty). We each had a different... More

Although it's a very limited menu (VERY), it is what it is....and what they DO have (spaghetti with meatballs mainly) is delicious and well priced. It sure it nice for a quick, easy, takeout meal.
