Mandile's Italian Ristorante is under new ownership. My husband and I chose Mandile's for date night on a Thursday night. The Thursday ongoing special is 1/2 price bottles of wine. The Host presented us with menus and a weekly specials menu insert. They offer 12 different pastas and a nice variety of Italian dishes. Crusty Italian bread and a dipping... More

Met new owners who were very friendly and excited about the place. They hope previous customers will come back now that they have taken over. Stop by if you haven't in a... More

We go here quite often as it's close to our house and the food has always been great! I like the atmosphere, and drinks are always good too. Great spot , great Italian food. Definitely worth a try

Not at all what I expected, very disappointing. Decor is very strange, and there are lots of steps. We were there on a Tuesday night which is their Chicken Parm special for $10.00. It was ok. Very plain, nothing special about it. Would not go back.

We kept hearing that this place was worth a try. My wife and girls tried and didn't like it. I kept saying we should try it again and that maybe they just caught them in a bad night. So we tried again. They were right, it just isn't that good. Everything is just OK. The food isn't great, the ambiance... More

Nice selection of specialty cocktails. The crostini appetizer was perfect and fresh. Entree portions are generous. The live music was perfect to enjoy while eating and the dance floor was full of people enjoying the band. The staff were friendly and attentive. Overall no complaints. I would definitely visit again.

My wife and I eat out with another couple every few months. We liked the idea of the Wednesday dinner special and came to Mandile's and sat outside. Occasionally we'd hear emergency vehicles responding to rush hour accidents in the very busy Algonquin, however, the atmosphere outside was quite cozy with the lighting and table set ups...we ignored all occasional...

My husband and I had a late reservation for dinner on Friday night. We were running a bit late due to one of our 6 kids having issues getting to sleep while being babysat by Grandma and Grandpa. So I called to let them know we'd be about 15 min late and I was told "no problem. Thank you for... More

Hello, I am the owner of the establishment and I wanted to verify the legitimacy of this review, as we find it false and frankly insulting. First of all we are sorry for any confusion you may have come across Friday evening, in no way shape or form do we want to upset our guests, perhaps if I was there... More
