The atmosphere and decor were great. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and the prices very reasonable. The only reason I didn't give an "outstanding" for the food is that the veal piccante needed a little more lemon for my taste. Other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will definitely be back.

Ambience fine. Very quiet and not many people in the restaurant. Our server was great and recommended ways to keep the bill down since we were going to a concert and could not take leftovers with us. The food -- VERY POOR. We split some appetizers that were just OKAY. The bread in an Italian restaurant HORRIBLE. We split a Cesar salad (poor) and we split an order of the lasagna. The sauce (the hallmark of a good Italian restaurant) whether it's a dive or a very expensive restaurant was HORRID. DO NOT RECOMMEND. The bill came to almost $100. with the tip. Stay home and open a jar of Prego.

Overall was satisfactory. Server did not ask to get us new drinks once they were gone. Food tasted good. Checking on the table more often would be preferred. I let restaurant know we were there for a birthday through open table but information was not shared.

This was our first time at Mancuso's and we're definitely going back. The food was excellent, the service outstanding, and the meals came out quickly and together. It was a concert night so the restaurant did an excellent job keeping things moving for all. I had the Chilean sea bass which was very good. My husband had the osso bucco which was outstanding. Both meals were cooked perfectly and came out hot. Though it was our waiter's first week there he was well seasoned having come from NYC. Don't go without having the cannolis! Delicious with a cup of espresso or a latte. And what a treat finally being in a restaurant that was well staffed! Kudos to them for maintaining a great level of service! Though we live about 45 minutes away it will be worth the trip again for the superb experience.

Ambiance was great. Server seemed new and literally had to go get help to open a bottle of wine. During our meal he kept asking if we were “still working” while I’m still chewing, with fork in hand, with quite a bit of food left. The food itself was mediocre. My wife’s filet was less than her requested temp and my NY Strip was overcooked and chewy. The basket of garlic bread and the tiramisu were average. The lobster risotto was the only highlight of the meal, other than the good bottle of wine (which we can get anywhere). We won’t be back.

Great history of excellence, but sadly a declining business model.
That said, a courteous and trained server would have been nice.
Mine was a bartender who clearly was not cut for the job.
In a place like this, I was surprised.
My tip should have gone to the staff, not her. They did most of the work.

The filet was great, although bleeding on the plate seems more Rare than the Medium-rare that I ordered. In fairness she did check back with me, but I feared her reaction if I contested anything.

Fair value, good food.

The food was delicious. We had to ask for a bread basket and when it came the bread was somewhat wet and soggy. The waiter was nice and replaced it for us. Besides that the waiter was wonderful and very attentive. We enjoyed our experience overall.

Interesting location on the 2nd floor, very nice inside with comfortable high backed booths. The menu was amazing! I had the Lasagna and it was so good...a true meat lasagna. Our server Jade was excellent and so pleasant to speak with, sheshared not only menu tips but tid bits of history about this wonderful family restaurant. Fine Italian Dining in a unique downtown setting. Highly recommend.

My girlfriend and I were visiting the area on vacation. Mancuso's was hands down our favorite restaurant in the area. It's now actually one of our favorite restaurants of all time. The food is INCREDIBLE. The service was amazing. We had Jade as our server who was absolutely fantastic. We HIGHLY recommend everyone make a point to eat at this restaurant!
