    My fiance and I had been here one other time and we wanted to go somewhere special for his birthday. So I made a reservation on Open Table and requested a great table and told them it was my fiance's birthday. Not only did they greet us by name when we walked in, but they sat us at the table right at the window. The service was perfect all night and they even comped our dessert for his birthday. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a couple looking for a romantic dinner. Our experience at Cugini Manzone was perfect!

    We frequented the predecessor to this place and thought we'd try this despite the early lackluster reviews. We were all pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed our family dinner here! Everyone found something to like on the menu and we especially enjoyed the pizza (great crust), and the bruschetta!

    Very happy with the new Cugini Manzone--same open, sunny room with wonderful food. The caprese was tabu (fresh mozzarella, as touted) and pizza--magnifico!

    I will admit to being prejudiced; my wife and I were fans of Filipo's which used to occupy this real estate. Filipo's was comfortable in menu, pricing, and ambience. The warm spinach salad at Cugini was not warm, the pancetta was over-cooked, it and the pine nuts were scarce, and there was shaved Parmesan on top which was not listed on the menu. My crab cakes were very good, well seasoned, not overly breaded and the aioli was rich and tasty. My wife ordered the mussels with Calabrese sausage, which the waiter described as mildly spicy. She had to rush home for some yogurt to cool her mouth off. There seems to be a disconnect between what the kitchen, wait staff, and the menu think is being served. Too bad there's only one kind of sausage.
