It is my strong belief that an Italian restaurant should cook pasta well. I asked someone else at the table that ordered the same dish and they confirmed that their (shrimp and scallop) linguini was overcooked...not slightly at that.

Rude manager, asked for plain bread rather than than one saturated with garlic, told they ONLY make garlic bread which they must make from plain bread (right ?), waiter did find plain, Manager never returned to our table. Pasta overcooked, meatballs dry. Was not our first visit but our last. Need to find a “go to” restaurant for when we go to shows and symphony, this isn’t it.

We are never disappointed when we dine at Mancusos. It is our go-to place when we are downtown to see a performance or sporting event. My wife had the swordfish special with a lobster sauce and the risotto side. I had the Lobster fra diavolo. Excellent dishes. Appetisers were the stuffed mushrooms and crab-stack, two of our favorites. A bottle of reasonably priced red rounded out the menu and we were on our way to see Josh and Idina across the street. Parking in the Collier center below was easy and with validation cost nothing plus was easy to exit afterwards. Hearty Recommendation from this local.

We like Italian Food. We know good Italian Food. We were quite pleased. The bolognese sauce on pasta was delicious. The meatballs were delicious. The Fra Diavlo was delicious. The bread was great. The service was spot on and overall a comfortable dining place. We would return if were lived there. We were pleased with our dinner after a long 'convention center-vendor' day.

First time visiting Mancuso's. Service was very good. Menu was good and had plenty of options. Wine list could use a few more choices, but still pretty good. I ordered the veal chop which was the special for the day, and it was outstanding. They let me substitute the potatoes for a side of risotto and it was very creamy and perfectly cooked. It could have used a little more garlic or spice, but still good. Overall a very good experience and I recommend it to any other foodies.

We made our reservation prior to going to a concert at Talking Stick Arena. We got there about 30 minutes before our reservation and we were seated right away. Our meals were very good and plentiful portions. Neither my husband or I could finish our meals. I would certainly recommend this restaurant. Our waiters were friendly, attentive and knowledgable about the menu.

Didn't realize this was the old Kincaid's (which I loved) location. Perfect for downtown events. We had 7 people in our party. We were seated promptly. Server was pleasant, knowledgeable and attentive, although we sat there for a long time before bread was served. Entrees included Lasagna, Linguine with Clams, Capellini with Shrimp, Rigatoni Bolognese and Gnnoci. Nearly everyone's general consensus was that their meal was "just okay". The tomatoes in the Capellini were very pale and void of flavor. Overall just very ordinary. None of us we expect to go back which is a shame given the great location.

Nice bar. Food was very good. Took 15 mins for waitress to greet us after I asked the manager who was waiting on us. Waitress barely checked on us until the bill was presented and then she wanted to make conversation. I think the manager should have offered us a drink or sent over a dessert for the inconvience if waiting for someone to recognize we were waiting. I think they need to learn how to make up for a mistake.
