We had a great Mother's Day dinner at Pizzeria Mandara. It was a cheerful upbeat feeling in the restaurant which added to making our dinner a part of everyone's joyful celebration. The ministrone soup is delicious. I had chicken parm with spaghetti and is was great. My husband and my son enjoyed their meals as well. We have been going to Pizzaria Mandara for years and plan to return for many more.

The noise level in this restaurant is overwhelming! If you want to have a conversation during your meal, think again and choose another restaurant. All you can do is sit and eat. You will not be able to hear a word anyone in your party is saying, except if they yell across the table after repeating themselves multiple times. Just awful! We asked to have our table moved three times; the hostess could not accommodate us.

Some meals are excellent. Some meals are totally bland. The ravioli were great. The RABI E SALSICCIA tasted of nothing but bitter broccoli rabe - no garlic, no olive oil, nothing. The SCAPARIELLO was great. The shrimp over spaghetti was again utterly tasteless. They need some quality control.

The food at Mandara is always terrific!! Sat in the back room this visit which can get a little loud and it was this time as there was a table with 3 young kids finishing up dinner. But, they left and as mentioned, the dinner was delicious.

Service is always great. We have been here many times. The restaurant is byob and the waiter opens your wine for you and brings wine glasses. Bread is also supplied to your table prior to ordering. There is olive oil on the table. We had the chicken dishes. All dishes have great sauces. We love the sauces.

Very good food, but the restaurant can be quite noisy, especially for earlier dinners when families with young children are with them. The staff is helpful and friendly. The portions are very generous (I didn't see anyone walk out without leftovers). Overall, we have been several times and like it very much, although we try to go a little later when the very young children are already home.
