We lived in the Twin Cities for many years, and never discovered this gem. It took moving away to find it!

The first thing you notice is the cozy, old school atmosphere. Sorry, the first thing you notice is the impossibly good-smelling aroma on the sidewalk on the way in. The next thing you notice is the huge basket of charred bread, hot and tasty! When those get cold, more hot ones appear! Then the steak. A previous reviewer noted cooked to perfection - yes! Big, beautiful steaks. And the service is terrific!

We had a great extended family dinner here. Sometimes old school is the best school. We will be back!

I have been to Mancinis for steak on several occassions and have never been disappointed. The menu is small but all the food is done very well. When the grill is retired for the winter this is the spot here in St Paul

Mancini's has been a favorite tradition for our family for years. The food is wonderful, but that's just for starters; we have always been greeted and treated like valued guests, and that makes such a difference! We have been to Mancini's for unplanned couples' nights out; also for planned events requiring reservations and many tables for those in our party; Mancini's staff always makes it work, and everyone always leaves happy. It's a local treasure, one of a kind.

I ordered the sirloin which was cooked to perfection and had lots of flavor. The pickle, pepper and tomato plate they bring before your meal was very good. The bread wasn't what I like as it had a terrible char taste. Service was terrific.

Mancini’s char house has amazing steak & lobster! The drinks and desserts are excellent. The atmosphere is really cool too. It’s one of Saint Paul’s very best restaurants. It’s a great place for a quiet meal, a special ocasian or a family dinner. The service is great and fast! If you’re visiting Saint Paul and looking for a great steak, this is your place.
