Great Italian neighborhood restaurant

Not only is the food good, but the service is friendly. You even get a piano player & personal attention by the owners. A go to place for me & my friends.

Tony Mandina's is a staple in Gretna, LA. My in-law's have been dining here for years. Today, however, was the first visit for my son and I while here in New Orleans for the week of Thanksgiving. We all had the Tuesday special: spaghetti and meatballs with their famous "red gravy" (marinara). The meatballs were more than ample in size... More

Tony Mandina's is a wonderful warm atmosphere with a family touch. The quality of food is excellent and the italian flavor is one to bring you back. We also like the pianist, Roberto Matthews on Friday night.

Easy and ample off street parking was the first delight. My lunch companion and I walk through the door and are greeted by Tony Mandina himself. I noticed right away that the tables are arranged so everyone has space. I ordered the non-menu lunch special, shrimp on pasta. It had tomato, mushroom, (not enough) garlic, and was a generous serving.... More

It had been years since I've been back here. I ordered the chicken Parmesan with Alfredo sauce instead of marinara... Talk about a good call! The food is always fast and delicious if your in for a quick and hearty lunch. If you're on the best bank and craving Italian..... You're welcome!!!

This is a family owned and personally operated restaurant now in it's second generation of serving the best Italian food in the area. If it isn't fresh it isn't served!

Good food is made better by a very nice atmosphere all around. A door man at night and Mr. Tony greeting you with his wife always make for a great experience.

I highly recommend to eat here Tuesday's for lunch, it is the best hamburger steak in New Orleans. The Resturant needs more room so customers don't have to yell to talk over each other. Very loud for lunch. Overall good food, good value.
