Great Value, Nice Staff! Kids always convince me to come here for the kids meal with Gelatto, I come for the bread. I have got to say the red meat sauce is much better than I can make at home. I do not normally eat...More

We've eaten here a couple times and both times felt for the meal price the quantity of food was quite lacking, especially when compared to the obvious competitor chains. In our case we ordered simple pasta with marinara sauce. The adult portion was quite small,...More

We’ve been to their locations off Guadalupe and south Austin and thus one is just as good. Great playground for kids, plenty of parking. You can take a gang and find a fun place to be loud and celebrate.

Daily specials and good variety at reasonable prices. There is a play area outside and casual family atmosphere inside

They've really done this restaurant right. There's always at least a bit of a wait, but they have you place your order and then sit down and they bring it to you. Delicious menu items, lasagna to die for! I highly recommend it.

We were a group of 10 adults dining on a Saturday night. 5:30 early birds as there were some elderly members in our party. There were plenty of seats and parking, and the staff were warm and welcoming. I like the vintage posters, pictures &...More

A manager took the order and did not enter it into the computer. When I came to pick up the order the counter person said there was no record of the order and only checked the other orders at my request. Then the to-go person...More

Fresh daily prepared ingredients & homemade sauces from Mandola's home recipes. From small towns with names like Cefalú, Bisaquino, Corleone and Mezzoiuso, they came and opened their neighborhood grocery stores. In that same pioneering spirit, and with a desire to preserve the Italian-American experience, Damian & Trina Mandola welcome you to Mandola’s Italian. It is an authentic Italian grocery. It is a place to gather. But most of all, it is a place to truly enjoy great food and warm Italian hospitality. Benvenuti!
