Great restaurant with excellent atmosphere

Mancini's is a great place for a business or casual dining meal. Great service with Awesome "Old School" atmosphere. Food is excellent as well. Red leather upolstery provides a warm comfortable experience.

Great food. Fair price. Great Family Business. The owner, Pat Mancini took the time to ensure all was fine. Spent quite a while with us. We loved the conversation and Pat's knowledge and views of St-Paul. A Proud native son! Good man and good restaurant. Bar side is sorta "Boogie Nights". Time well spent.

I've been going here for 20 years and every single meal has been great. Start off with the grilled garlic bread and ask for butter both sides. It's so good save a piece for dessert. The menu's short and rightfully so. Get the surf and turf and drink a local beer you will go back for more.

I love the fresh bread. I think that's the best part of dinner. Steak and chicken was good. No complaint here. Excellent service. A little spendy but worth it.

After years of living in St. Paul my family finally decided to give this place a try. All we had ever heard was positive and Mancini's lived up to its reputation. Service was terrific with our server being extremely attentive, fast with our orders and she worked to make the experience positive. The food was outstanding from the pickled appetizer... More

My son recently got married and we had his party here.The steaks were out of this world good.My rare Filet Mignon was cooked to perfection.Even though the place was jam packed our server was very attentive.My gin martini was one of the better ones I have had.I cannot think of any way this evening could have been better.

I was here for business and decided to try Mancini's. We did not have reservations and just showed up. We were immediately seated and our server promptly got our drinks and brought our bread. I ordered the steak and it was prepared as I ordered and had excellent flavor. I would definitely eat here again and I will again order... More

I have been to Mancini's more than 50 times and never had a bad experience. The food is second to none and the service is outstanding. I recommend taking time to stop in and try it. If I could rate it 10 Stars I would.

Well I can't say anything bad about the steak because we didn't get any. The website says For reservations call... But when I called to make a reservation (1/17/15 at 7pm) I was told it was first come first served and there was an hour wait and I was promptly hung up on. I don't think I will make the... More
