A few flaws, but nice find
Oberall the experience and the Food were very good. The waiter was extremely attentive, especially when they forgot the pancetta on my scallops with pancetta. Have the table side mozzarella. Very good. Desserts were disappointing. Amaretti cake hard as a rock. Hazelnut gelato tasteless and full of ice pieces. Was very surprised that the restaurant was so empty on a Saturday night. Due to location? Don't know, but even with its flaws, I'd return.

Very well done
Great, unusual menu with a fresh take on Italian. The service was amazing and the restaurant was hip and modern. It's a shame it was so empty on a Saturday evening. More people need to find out about this hidden gem!

Delicious food & fabulous service!
We were greeted with a yummy tuna crudo from the chef! We also enjoyed some perfectly crisp calamari with fresh marinara sauce, fresh perfectly cooked garganelli pasta, and perfectly cooked scallops with a fantastic parsnip purée. The portions were generous and the wine list was great! We also noticed that they have a great bar that is open to the outside for people to walk up to.
We were also blown away by the service! All of the staff was very warm, friendly and accommodating. My dad wanted a special order off the menu and they made it happen with no trouble--and it was delicious.
This is classic Italian with a modern twist. Would definitely recommend!

A Pleasant Experience
Thanks to a Living Social discount, my wife and I visited Mancini Modern Italian. To be candid, had it not been for the deal website, we probably never would have known about this beautiful restaurant. The location is on a side street just off Las Olas Boulevard (we actually had to call for directions as we approached, since it somewhat hidden away). Thankfully we found the place, since it was a great meal and a wonderful experience. We were quickly welcomed by both our waiter and (who I believe to be) the owner on a Saturday night...Nice touch. The waiter recommended a high quality eggplant appetizer and a few entree specials which we enjoyed. Dessert was delicious and well portioned as well. Overall, a pleasurable date night.

Mancini's is back with Great Food, Service & Style. The food was excellent linguini with seafood was excellent.
Will make Mancini's a regular dining spot the food, service and the decore should make this a popular dining spot for everyone from Palm Beach to Miami.

Have been meaning to try and wasn't disappointed for dinner. Plenty to choose from on menu including pizza and plenty for foodies. Waiter had good line that all the food is good, what you need to be wary of is the service. I'll be back.

Solid Meal but flashing lights?
Mancini's suffers a bit of an identity crisis. Is it a top notch restaurant? Is it a bar with flashing colored lights? Is it geared toward the Vibe/Yolo party crowd with an outdoor bar? The food was above average, well made, and the service was friendly and responsive. The table side mozzarella was both fun to watch and tasty to eat. The salad we ordered had too much dressing, but the ingredients were high quality. I enjoyed the meat sauce pasta; my wife didn't. Mussels were excellent; perfectly cooked in a tasty broth. I'm rating it very good overall, as my experience fits that category.. Try it.
