The experienced Culinary team of Chefs John R. Mannino & John M. Mannino (Father & Son Respectively) have partnered with Sommelier Daris Gavin to open New "Olde World Style" Italian Bistros. The goal was to give patrons Great Italian food at a reasonable price point with wine choices to match.

Good food but manager too involved in our server's business

Food, wine and specials are amazing. Our server was doing well with our large party and kept us informed how our food was coming along as well as kept our drinks full. The manager however kept coming behind her and it got to be annoying as we were trying to socialize with each other. I'm not sure... read more

As soon as my fiance and I walked in the door, we were greeted with a pleasant hostess. We sat at the bar waiting for the party to arrive. The bartender Misty was great! She helped me find the wine I was looking for. The dining room was free of debris and clean as far as I could see. Roanna... More

We had s wonderful meal and Diane our server was amazing. The food, lasagna and shrimp Diablo was made fresh and came out hot. Desserts were amazing. Freshly made Tiramisu.. You could tell by the sponge being firm and not mushy. Monday is wine night and it was a great selection of wines to choose from. Recommend to all!!!

The kind of person we all want to be the face of our establishments. He recommended the fried oysters and... More

We took our son and daughter-in-law out for very special events to celebrate, her birthday and our son becoming a Judge, and we were not disappointed. Everyone's individual culinary tastes were satisfied from appetizers to our selected entrees, and we all had (this will be great for Sunday afternoon lunch boxes to go). Diane, our server, explained that the food... More

We stumbled across this gem and are so thrilled that we did--fine Italian food, service that was knowledgeable and attentive without hovering, and delightful, intimate seating and ambiance. This isn't a restaurant to come to while tugging at your tie and shapewear, but one to invite your friends to sit and share a relaxed meal of delicious cuisine and perfect... More
