I needed to place a catering order for my son's birthday and wanted to stay local. Since they are so close to home, I opted for Mandile's and I was not disappointed. When I first called to place my order, they weren't open yet and I had to leave a message. The owner called me back within a few hours,... More

Went there to use a groupon we had purchased. There were no specifics listed about using the groupon. Our groupon covered $40 of food. Our bill came out to just shy of $40, something like $39.87. The manager didn't want to honor the groupon for $40.00. I was not asking him to give me the change or anything. There were... More

I have to be honest and say that I do not recall a situation like this occurring while I've been in charge. Can you please tell me when this occurred. I can assure you that I would... More

We had a nice meal at Mandile's the other day. The four of us each had pasta dishes and they were all quite good. There was an entertainer singing songs over by the bar that was pretty good too. The drinks we had were well prepared and timely delivered. About the only thing I would recommend to the restaurant is... More

Mandile's Italian Ristorante is under new ownership. My husband and I chose Mandile's for date night on a Thursday night. The Thursday ongoing special is 1/2 price bottles of wine. The Host presented us with menus and a weekly specials menu insert. They offer 12 different pastas and a nice variety of Italian dishes. Crusty Italian bread and a dipping... More

Not at all what I expected, very disappointing. Decor is very strange, and there are lots of steps. We were there on a Tuesday night which is their Chicken Parm special for $10.00. It was ok. Very plain, nothing special about it. Would not go back.

We kept hearing that this place was worth a try. My wife and girls tried and didn't like it. I kept saying we should try it again and that maybe they just caught them in a bad night. So we tried again. They were right, it just isn't that good. Everything is just OK. The food isn't great, the ambiance... More
