Manoli Canoli

  • 3

Has anyone tried Manoli Canoli in Chevy Chase? It is located on Connecticut Ave in the location of the former Marcella's. We are considering going there tomorrow, but thought I would first find out if anyone has any comments on the food.

  1. We had their pizza a few weeks ago -- quite a disappointment. Same recipies as the old Marcella's, but the crust, which was never Marcella's strong point, was carboard. Can't say about the other items. They are also serving breakfast -- but absolutely empty -- I'm afraid they will go under soon, and don't understand why they don't send out flyers to the neighbors.

    1. i went for lunch a week ago, had the eggplant matzorella sub on their hard roll. I have to say it was super. since then i have gone again and had the antipasta, the egg lemon soup, and have purchased matzorella to take with me along with their olives. I have never had better. i will return to try again. in answer to Marissa, my neighbors have gotten pizza and they loved it. I dont have any doubt that they will do just fine. I too had gone to Marcellas, there are significant improvements in this restaurant, the menu and the service.

        We'll have to give it another try--and it wouldn't take much to improve the old service!
