What can I say, this place is the perfect neighborhood italian restaurant. If I ever move, I am hoping I can take Manny's Pizzeria with you. It's truly authentic italian food and the waiters are authentic italians as well. Go and Enjoy!

ok, the best thing I can say about this place is that it serves decent italian food (the basics with a tiny little bit of flair) and has a fantastic flower arrangement at the hostess station. The worst thing about this place is the service: as many others have stated, the service is ghastly; our waitress wasn't terrible, she was very personable and almost attentive: but the manager/owner lady was gruff and dismissive, when we were trying to get a table! It was a busy saturday night, but I suspect with a few more dismissed customers, they'll have ample time to attend to their dwindling number of customers.

I have to admit that I've never eaten at the restaurant on Fair Oaks...but I can tell you I've had their take out several times. I take jewelry classes in Pasadena on Saturdays and when we will often order lunch for delivery from Manny's. Their cheese tortellini with meat sauce is more than enough for a lunch serving, and they always bring some bread. Once I ordered a side salad, but it was a little too much food. I've also had the provolone and avocado sandwich with a salad. It's a good lunch portion...but not so heavy that I fall asleep while trying to solder silver during the afternoon session.

Perhaps the service and food have gone downhill since this place opened (and the rave reviews were posted). But I went on a quiet night, could not have been more than five tables occupied, and although we were seated promptly, it took forever to get someone to take our order. Then we had a problem with the pizza, and was told by another waiter that he couldn't help us, and we would have to wait for our server. And wait we did.... At no point were we asked how if we needed anything, and then it took an additional 20 minutes to pay the bill. I was so frustrated that I went up to our "server" and asked if he was the manager. And surprisingly he admitted that he was. I told him I understand that they were preparing to close, but that this was some of the worst service ever. To which he said, "ok, thanks." Not even an apology. Now if the manager gives you such poor service, I cannot imagine that he really wants any of your business. You think he would work harder to get and keep customers since the food is nothing to write home about. But no, not interested. Guess he gets enough tourists that he doesn't need any business from the locals. There are dozens of Italian restaurants within a two block radius. I would say, save your time and money and look elsewhere. Between the food and service, you're just wasting an evening in what is otherwise a great neighborhood.

Pros: None, unless you like mediocre food.

Cons: Service and food.

The Pizzeria atmosphere was dim (romantic and lots of 80?s music). But the service was HORRIBLE! The waiter led us to our seats and handed us menus. But then he waited over 20 minutes to come and get our order. The bus boy even noticed that we had been sitting there for an excessive amount of time without being offered water or being asked for our order. Never was offered nor did we get any bread at the table even though the other tables around us did. The place was not busy only about 5 tables around (no big groups either). We ordered the Manny?s Special and there was suppose to be Italian Meatballs, Italian Sausage, Salami, Mushrooms and Olives. The toppings were so scarce that when we asked the waiter/ Manager where the Italian Meatballs where and he had to take off his glasses and use the pizza server to poke at the pizza for 30 seconds before he was able to find the Italian Meatballs. If you ever had an Italian Meatball you would know that you would not have to poke around for it (they should be fairly big and visible). The toppings were almost non existent except for the ungodly amount of mozzarella cheese on the pizza.

I also noticed that the other reviews were old. But not too much has changed as far as the BAD SERVICE. We had to ask for everything at least twice and still got ignored. I can't imagine what the service would be like when and if the place was ever busy.

Save your time and money and explore the other eateries in the neighborhood.

If you ask me about pizza there isnt many that i do not like, however theirs was amazing. They also have some pretty good wine. I just love pizza. I went there with a bigger group of people and they were accomedating for us, sometimes people get annoyed with bigger groups but they were nice and friendly to us. I would definitley go again.

We just moved to Pasadena and have found the most amazing little pizzeria in Manny's. We have only ever ordered delivery, but the pizzas are AWESOME and I have to also highly recommend the hot vegeterian pita (yum) and the greek salad. Sadly, they recently took the LA pizza off the menu -- it was a very tasty mexican spin on an Italian classic. Manny's Special pizza is also delicious -- meaty, salty, and all around scrumptious. The people who have said this restaurant is no good or blad obviously don't have tastebuds. Try it for yourself -- you won't be dissapointed!

Pros: GREAT pizza, awesome sandwiches, tasty salads

This place has a pretty good happy hour special (1/2 off pizza & beer).

If you can't make it to happy hour but have the late night munchies this place is great (open till 1 or 2 am).

PROS: Good food
CONS: No parking & small locale

Manny's Pizza in Pasadena has really great food but their service has much to be desired. I've been there many times and every time, it's taken entirely too long to get food, drinks, and menus! It's not that Manny's has a lack of people, either. Many times I've seen hosts and hostesses just standing around. I'd suggest calling Manny's and getting your pizza delivered or go for pick up unless you seriously want to be there for like an hour or more. Luckily, the last time we went my friends and I got involved in a highly political conversation and we wanted to be there for awhile so I didn't quite notice. Get the pizza if you go. It's really good.

I remember the first time my boyfriend took me there...I fell in love! The atmosphere is great (casual, romantic) and I would definetely recommend it as a date place. It's also a healthy alternative to your typical pizza places, offering some of their pizzas on whole wheat crust. And talk about value! They have a deal for 1/2 price bottle of wine after 7p on weekdays. We still go there AT LEAST once a week!

The food here is not that great. For $12, you get a small pizza with minimal toppings. The pizza sauce is watery and bland. Also, don't bother ordering the bruschetta. You'll get two pieces of pizza dough with a bland tomato mixture on it. Service is cordial, at best. Overall, a pretty average pizza restaurant.

Went on a saturday night and the place was fairly empty...our group of 5 ordered pizza, pesto linguini, lasagna, eggplant parmigiana, and a pomodoro pasta. All of the pastas were super duper bland and we requested extra pizza sauce to bring some flavor to it. The pizza was ok, not bad, but average...not worth going to this place just for pizza though. The atmosphere is very VERY dim, you can barely see your menu, and when we asked for crayons to doodle on the paper tablecloth, the waitress brought back some 1-inch stubs she must have found in some back closet. As for service, we were seated promptly (no one was there), but no one came for drinks or food until 30 minutes later. Basically, we just waited the whole night for some sub-par food.

Good mainstream Italian. The only reason I don't go there more is the dining area. It's cramped.

Manny's serves a great pizza. Their thin crusts remid me of my travel's through Italy. I love their Village Salad. They conveniently deliver free of charge, an added bonus.

My friends and I went to Manny's Pizza the other day and we received the worst service ever. We had to ask for everything like re-fills on drinks, sugar, spoons, you name it. Never go there... the waitress even argued with us because she would not honor our coupon which was a valid coupon. The food also wasn't that good... average stuff that you can make at home, and the BBQ pizza was just flat out bad tasting. Save your money and time and go to the other many many better restaurants in Old Town Pasadena. AND on top of all that, they only validate parking for half and hour.

Manny's Pizzeria cannot be descirbed in one word. In fact I do believe, as a writer, there are no such words that can describe how great this restaurant is. Its found near the corner of fair oaks and colorado ave, but where it is exactfly established is somewhat hidden, which makes this nice little spot exclusive. It is what makes this restaurant. Besides the food, which GREAT! It has been home many of my dining experiences and is my favorite. Even for those who have never tried italian food, once you go to Manny's, you'll never want to go anywhere else. Bring your family, your friends, and even have a romantic dining experience all under the same roof...There is no other... Their service is excellent, the atmosphere is great. Trust me... I can go on and on.

My friends and I bumped into this quiet little joint a while ago on a busy Friday night. This restaurant is one of my best I have encountered to this date and I go out a lot. We ordered a large pizza and it tasted marvelous. Despite the three of us ordering such an inexpensive meal, the female waiter was still warm and friendly. She genuinely smiled the whole time and was always helping us. The atmosphere was very romantic with candles despite the distraction from a nearby muted t.v. I have yet to taste their pastas or other entries, but I trust that It will be excellent in quality and freshness. Overall, Manny's is a great place to have a meal with a small group of friends even if on a college budget. I would also recommend it for romantic dinners. This is one of the finest around.

I get Manny's pizza delivered at home and boy is it delicious! The ingredients are always fresh and delicious and the variety of toppings to choose from, WOW! My favorite consists of chicken, fresh tomatoes, basil and extra cheese. Their cheese ravoli is also quiet good! I'm telling you, once you've tried a Manny's Pizza you'll never order from those fast food pizzerias again!
