Nice atmosphere, clean, nice hostess/wait staff. Our appetizer came out late and was burnt but when it was brought said they would get us another. It was brought up only a few mins before dinner was. It was very good and much better than the original and dinner was very good. Overall a good experience!

Always great food and ambience, but the acoustics are incredibly challenging. It’s difficult to have a conversation as it’s difficult to hear your friends talking.

We have eaten here many times and have done a number of "pickups" due to the pandemic and have always had both excellent service and excellent food. We took our two grandkids (7 & 5) and they each had a 10" pizza and loved it. "Is this all for me" was the best comment of the dinner from our granddaughter. We highly recommend Pizzeria Mandera to all. Oh and the servings are huge. Enough for a leftover lunch!

This was our first time at Pizzeria Mandara and we loved it! The food was delicious, the service was excellent and we were not rushed, even though there are less tables now due to the cautions still in effect. We are going back next week with friends!

This was the second time eating at Pizzeria Mandara. The food was excellent. We were never rushed out, which was awesome since both times we came with friends which we don' see often. The additional people we brought had never been here before so hopefully they enjoyed as much as we did and will come again.

We are long time diners at Pizzeria Mandara. Always a delicious meal and good service. Chicken Michaelangelo is a great favorite as is their minestrone soup. We always enjoy Pizzeria Mandara.

The best part about coming here is the items on the regular menu are so darn good it doesn't even matter what the specials are. The sherry wine sauce is spectacular and there are at least two dishes that have it. If you are just in the mood for a sandwich you can't beat their eggplant parm. We come here fairly regularly and have never been disappointed. The staff are very helpful and friendly adding to your dining experience.

This was our first dining experience at Pizzeria Mandara and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. The salad was very fresh and the Mandara pasta entree was very flavorful. I had the linguine with clams entree and it was cooked perfectly. The chocolate cake dessert was delicious. The service was exceptional and loved the casual atmosphere. I would definitely recommend to friends and will be returning soon.

Our first time here and we had no trouble making an Open Table reservation within two hours of our desired time. Our waiter was friendly, attentive and I think he was from Positano so he made some excellent recommendations. Every part of our meal was delightful from Apps to desert and since it was early on New Years Eve, it got a bit louder but not too bad. We loved the excellent variety on the menu as there was plenty of chicken, veal and pasta dishes. The Rice Ball appetizer was tasty and we love the fact the portions are good for two meals. My wife and I have already planned the dishes and pizza we want to try next time as we can’t wait to go back. Excellent meal and a pleasant atmosphere. See you very soon. Thanks

Great food and great service. Love the ambience and love that you can just make a reservation easily on OpenTable. A great plus. We were a party of four and everyone was happy with their entrée and their appetizers, and I had the coconut cake for dessert which is always my favorite.
Will definitely be back.
