Wife and I had a fear experience. I had the Redfish Alia and she the Veal Classico. Both were fantastic. The crabmeat on the redfish was great. Also had the turtle soup actual meat. I got the cup but wish I had gotten the bowl. Took home and order of the Sicilian eggplant sticks to reheat for the Super Bowl. Very tasty. They mix a good drink as well. We’ll be back.

Enjoyed a great meal Saturday night. Seafood gumbo was great. Tried eggplant Dominic st Jude first time and enjoyed every bite. Tiramisu for desert was a perfect way to finish a great meal.

Tony’s is always very good. I’m not sure if it’s the food or the friendly greeting is why we go back.

The parking lot attendant is there to walk you from your car to the restaurant and is such a nice guy. He is also there when you leave. Very safe and welcome feelings.

Tonight we had Nathan who was very professional and efficient.

The entire staff is great and personable. Everyone feels at home.


The calamari and eggplant appetizers are fried to perfection.

The veal parmigiana and veal Classico were generous and delicious.

Tonight the turtle soup was just okay which was disappointing because it is normally outstanding.

The dessert menu is one of the best in the city. Can’t go wrong with anything there.

Bread pudding was out favorite tonight. Oddly, I don’t get the Italian cookies anymore because they are incredible and addictive. They are a must!

There is care taken to maintain proper social distancing. All the staff wore masks the entire time.

From being greeted at the door by a polite doorman all the way to a great bread pudding for desert, Mandina's is sure to please. Great service with a comfortable atmosphere. It is always a special to be greeted by Mr. Tony and Ms. Grace and their granddaughter Lindsey is following in that tradition. They always find time to stop by your table to make sure dinner is perfect.

Best Italian in The Gig Easy!
Tony Mandina's is our Go-To restaurant when we want to wind down, sip a glass of wine and eat a delicious Italian meal. From the moment you enter the front door you feel like family. Best fried eggplant sticks in the city. The veal dishes are excellent. And don't forget the Red Gravy! Wow, the red gravy is without a doubt the Best I have ever gad.

I had lunch with a group of 5 girlfriends. We wanted to visit but the noise level was so high it was impossible to hear each other. The reason was not the crowd but the hard surfaces everywhere. Sound was bouncing everywhere.

The food was mediocre, 1 dish came out with cold pasta and a second one was wrong( this I think happened because of the noise level.
