First time at Mannino's and it won't be my last. I hosted a family dinner there and our server, Jenn, took great care of us. The sommelier helped guide me to a great bottle of wine in my price range, and it seemed like everyone on the staff helped out in one way or another, whether delivering food, clearing plates, or picking up the broken dish my niece dropped. Although we were there on a week night so the restaurant wasn't packed, I didn't think the decor or ambiance was lacking. I'm assuming other posters who wanted "private" tables are looking for those booths where you can draw the curtains. They def. do not have those here but I liked the openness of it, as it reminds me more of the restaurants I ate in during my trip to Italy. Fried green tomatoes appetizer was my favorite, and I loved the cheesecake for dessert. Our entrees were mainly the nights specials, a steak dish, and a sausage ravioli dish, both delicious, my brother in law got lasagna and although I made fun of him at first, I tasted it and was impressed! I appreciated the care they took in wrapping up my leftovers too. It's the little things that count! We will be back.
