MAGNIFICO! DELIZIOSO! Best Italian in New Orleans. This place is warm, comfortable, and so inviting! My wife and I celebrated our 36th Anniversary this weekend and couldn't have picked a better place. The cocktails were great. The food was great. Let's not forget the servers and the owners who work so hard to make their patrons feel special. We felt like family from the time we were greeted at the door. The piano player topped off the evening with a perfect selection of soothing and melodic songs. Always a delightful experience at Tony Mandina's.

Tony Mandina's never disappoints. Yesterday's lunch with friends was a nice experience; we were in/out in an hour. Ambiance is always nice and our waitress was very accommodating. The 3 of us ordered different entrees, all of which were delicious.

Made reservations with a friend not realizing they were participating in COOLinary New Orleans and had a Prix Fixe menu for lunch. It was fantastic! I had the Eggplant Veal Parmigiana and my friend had the Shrimp & Crabmeat Ravioli. Cannot say enough about the attentive staff and the wonderful flavors of the meal! My friend commented that the restaurant "didn't look like much from the outside", but was very pleasantly surprised on the appearance of the inside. Thank you so much for making our lunch outing special. I have visited this restaurant several times and have always been pleased. It was my friend's first time and she'll be back with her husband for date night!

The house salad and the artichoke soup were great. My tuna was delicious.
My husband ordered the seafood ravioli. A very unusual version of ravioli.
It was ok.
Strawberry cheesecake was very tasty!

The food is fantastic. The people are friendly. The Resturant is remodeled. The noise level from other patrons is unbelievable, like people are actually yelling to hear across the table. You can’t have a conversation with the people at your table it’s so loud.

The food was delicious. We dined at Tony Mandinas for a Restaurant Week promotion. We were very happy with our food choices. The shrimp bisque appetizer was the best I've had. Even though the restaurant was at almost full capacity, our food came out relatively quickly and the service was spot on. We will definitely be back!

This was our first visit to Tony Mandina’s Restaurant. My husband and I were very, very pleased with the experience. We were warmly greeted and promptly escorted to our table. All of the servers were well dressed and very professional. The ambiance is inviting and the decor is very tastefully done. Last, but certainly not least, the meals were exceptional. I look forward to our next visit to enjoy other items on the menu.

Surprised from the moment we arrived, someone to help you park and leave the restaurant when it was time. Decor was pleasant, service excellent, food was traditional Italian, filling and plentiful. My only complaint was the choice of wine. a glass of sauvignon blanc was not on the menu except by the bottle, eating with one drinker of wine would not allow me to order a bottle. Next time I will try the red wine. Piano music was another pleasant surprise.
Looking forward to the next time for this diamond in the ruff on the westbank.

The experience was fine. However, the noise level was unbearable. Also, the entrees arrived before we had finished our salad. This is the norm. They have to slow down the arrival of the entrees.
