my wife and I spent six days in New York and had three dinners at Manducatis Rustica because the service was excellent, the food consistently first rate, and the atmosphere authentic. As well, the prices were much less than any other comparable place we dined in the Big Apple. All the main courses were delicious and the homemade tiramisu was... More

I stopped into Manducatis for lunch with some co-workers. When we arrived, they weren't exactly open yet, but they seated us anyhow and took great care of us. The interior of the restaurant is quite large, much bigger than it appears from the outside. It is cozy and quiet, with many different dining rooms. Service was prompt, though not exactly... More

We visited this wonderful authentic Italian Restaurant on Oct. 18th 2014. I was greeted and seated immediately. I loved the decor, especially the artwork. They have an impressive wine list and my waitor helped me to make an excellent choice. The Minestrone Soup was just like my grandma used to make and the Chicken Piccata was masterfully prepared. To my... More

I will give them that I was part of a big group at lunch, but the service was slow and the food was not unlike that served at a Rotary Club luncheon and, after all, we did have reservations. Pizza was cold by the time we got it and my fish was cold and mushy. Won't be going back Jokes... More

Spent the day here with coworkers for an offsite meeting and the staff and atmosphere were wonderful! The food was authentic italian & tasted great from the main courses to desserts. The old paintings and photography gave an authentic italian feel which complimented the food, it was as if we were sitting in a restaurant in Italy! We were accommodated... More

Water 1/2 hour, bread 45 mins. Salad 1 hr.+. Entre's,2 hrs., came cold,no doubt from sitting for an hour not under heat lamps, and... More
