The Perfect Restaurant is owned by Jerry and Steve Manzano who took over the family business from their father, Gino, in 2002. The story, however, began many decades before.
In 1955, Grandpa Manzano moved from Italy to the United States and started an Italian deli in Seattle.
The first six years were very difficult for Grandpa as he had to work long hours both running his business and studying English. Through persistence and relentless commitment to provide the highest quality products and service, Grandpa’s business prospered beyond his greatest expectations.
A year later, in 1963, he opened the Manzano Family Italian Restaurant, and customers would come from all over Seattle to taste his homemade meatballs and secret recipe marinara sauce. The meatballs are even more popular today than they were then.
In 1991, Grandpa Manzano retired and passed the In 1991, Grandpa Manzano retired and passed the business to his son, Gino.
Gino’s sons, Jerry and Steve, worked many hours in the family’s restaurant while they were in high school and college. One of the things they heard customers say over and over is, “The food and service here are perfect.”
Gino retired in 2002 and passed the restaurant to Jerry and Steve, and the brothers were thrilled to carry on the family legacy. They changed the name to The Perfect Restaurant and business grew so fast that they had to turn away guests on most weekends. In 2015, they moved the restaurant to its present location at 400 Broad Street.

Anton is the executive Chef at The Perfect Restaurant, developing most of the specialty Italian, mouth-watering dishes. He came to the United States with his parents and a sister when he was 10 years old.
As a part of a large traditional Italian family, Anton spent a lot of time with his mom in the kitchen where he discovered his love for cooking. As he grew up, he honed his skills as a chef by watching at first and then making tasty meals for his family.
Realizing his untapped potential and with the massive encouragement from his parents and friends, Anton enrolled at The Culinary Institute of America. There he improved his cooking skills enormously and was eager to get his foot in the door at several well-established restaurants near his home.
Anton was so driven to become a successful chef that he accepted an intern position with one of the top restaurants in town. With dedication and hard work and a burning desire to learn as much as he could from his superior, he left this establishment after five years to search for better opportunities.
After working for just three months at one of the most popular restaurants in his city, his boss, who was one of the top executive chefs in the country, took Anton under his wing.
When this chef retired two years later, Anton was became the executive chef at the fanciest restaurant in town and won an award for top new chef. He followed that with several other prestigious cooking awards due to his many delicious Italian dishes.
As an award winning chef, Anton has spoken at numerous functions designed to encourage young people to involve in Culinary Arts.
