Good family Italian restaurant

Stick with the app's and pasta's, they are the best! Atmosphere and family owners make the visit authentic.

We were surprised, after being encouraged to make a reservation, to see how empty the restaurant was at 7:30 p.m. I had recommended Mandile's based on previous favorable experiences from a few years prior, and this was a special celebration for the four of us. Our waitress was excellent and attentive, but we were a little put off by continually... More

My husband and I eat here anytime we have a special occasion! Love their chicken Marsala! It is my favorite. The starter bread and oil is amazing!

Each meal is cooked separately to order. The four of us enjoyed each meal. Lasagna is award-winning, stuffed eggplant and the chicken/mushroom plate deserve10s.The pistachio gelato is just the right amount to be shared and enjoyed. The waitress was very accommodating. The only drawback was the restrooms especially the ladies was very cold I am told. We were early diners... More

We have been to Mandile several times, each time we have gone for the music - we really enjoy Tony Ocean he puts on a great show. We always enjoy the Italian food - good dishes with fresh ingredients and large portions. This last visit I had the Salmon with spinach and calamari over risotto - very nice. Make a... More

We bought a living social coupon for this place was very happy with the results. I had the eggplant Parmesan which was very good. The bowl of past fagioli is huge and could be it's own meal with a salad. My wife enjoyed the Gluten free options. The place is sort of big in an open air kind of way,... More

We are a young family ( three small children). I was very pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. I was not sure what to expect based on the recent reviews. The food was great. I was impressed with the kids meals. The chicken fingers were not your typical frozen grocery store variety. Both the chicken, and the fries, appear to be... More

They put up a tacky sign on the front door stating they would not accept vouchers today - which was Valentine's day. They must be on there way out to act like this. They have much better competitors on Randall with better food, service and prices, so can't imagine they will last much longer. Good riddance.

Restaurant posts a Groupon with no black out dates, then refuses service 2/15/2014 after we already drive there?!?! Spoke with Michael the manager and pointed out that the groupon had no restrictions and he said it didn't matter, he was not accepting it tonight.
