If you're going to an Italian restaurant the marinara sauce must be delicious and so it was at Mandina's. It seems to be a tad bit pricey, even though we were there for lunch, but someone has to pay for the linen table cloths. In addition to the great sauce there green beans was out of this world amazing. I don't recall having beans that good and in such an unexpected place as I do not associate Italian cooking with green beans. If you are in Mid-City stop by Mandina's and have a bite.
