The real thing

Cash only, Formica table tops, and the best chicken scarpa anywhere!! The scungil salad is perfect and generous in size, great bread and if you're lucky the owners father will be there to great you . I've eaten there for forty years and it's been a family restaurant since the seventies. No... read more

My friends and I are amateur but avid foodies and this is one of our favorite restaurants in the area. Over the last 2 or 3 years my wo9rk colleagues and I have sampled many of local Italian places - but only for lunch. We don't care about décor, just the food, and La Manda's is one of those places...

Food not bad,but Manager, the son of the owner,is so obnoxious, I will no longer go there. Try to patronize restaurant where they value their customers.

Dirty, old, greasy…BAD We have been fans of La Manda’s for a long time but we went with the kids this past weekend and maybe it was because it was light out and we were able to see better but the place was filthy. The floors were greasy, the tables dirty, the silverware crusty. We ordered and then I took... More

Our family has enjoyed La Manda's for decades. Fried Calamari is awesome, accompanying fradiavlo sauce perfect. Pizza Bread a home run. Scungilli salad to die for. House salad the best. Sly (owner) accommodating, friendly, eager to please. Great place for families, very reasonably priced. When in White plains this is where we eat!

I have frequented this place several times. the Chicken Scarparo has always been consistently good. I recently tried the Shrimp Marinara over a bed of linguini, it was over cooked (squishy) and the linguini was as far aldenti as could be, the Marinara sauce used to be better? Disappointing.

Just ate there for the first time and will be sure never to return. This is the most unaccommodating restaurant I have ever eaten in. No matter what we asked for they could not make it happen. My husband is a vegetarian and requested that the marinara sauce which should be a vegetarian sauce, be made without chicken broth. Nope... More

Being an NY born and raised Italian-American, I truly appreciate every aspect of the La Manda's dining experience. Restaurant is nothing fancy but the food delivers and service charms. My friends and I loved the menu, we deliberated on what to get for quite a while (but we ordered Peroni's, clams and mussels to tide us over while we made... More

This is a cash only, go to typical family Italian food: Chicken parm, fried calamari, a chicken Scarpiello, amazing tomato sauce, etc but ambiance is in need of a remodel. There's a must-y odor as well. Pizza ok. Convenient parking in back.

LaManda's has been around for ever. It's owned by the original family. They make the kind of food and portion size your old Italian grandmother used to make. You must go here hungry and don't eat bread. I think they make great pizza.
