You can expect fresh local produce and quality imported ingredients, along with a warm, beautifully decorated atmosphere and a high standard of hospitality.
Our food is delicious, satisfying and best shared with family and friends.
This was our first dining experience at Pizzeria Mandara and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. The salad was very fresh and the Mandara pasta entree was very flavorful. I had the linguine with clams entree and it was cooked perfectly. The chocolate cake dessert was delicious. The service was exceptional and loved the casual atmosphere. I would definitely recommend to friends and will be returning soon.
Wonderful food per usual
Rushed and too noisy
Our first time here and we had no trouble making an Open Table reservation within two hours of our desired time. Our waiter was friendly, attentive and I think he was from Positano so he made some excellent recommendations. Every part of our meal was delightful from Apps to desert and since it was early on New Years Eve, it got a bit louder but not too bad. We loved the excellent variety on the menu as there was plenty of chicken, veal and pasta dishes. The Rice Ball appetizer was tasty and we love the fact the portions are good for two meals. My wife and I have already planned the dishes and pizza we want to try next time as we can’t wait to go back. Excellent meal and a pleasant atmosphere. See you very soon. Thanks
The restaurant is very noisy. Food is good, portions huge. Staff extremely friendly. As long as someone doesn't mind the noise, it's a good neighborhood value.
Great food and great service. Love the ambience and love that you can just make a reservation easily on OpenTable. A great plus. We were a party of four and everyone was happy with their entrée and their appetizers, and I had the coconut cake for dessert which is always my favorite.
Will definitely be back.
Always the best service and a quality meal!
Always a great meal and staff is friendly and very attentive.
Poor service and they weren’t even busy. Constant had to track someone down to order, get cheese, pay, etc. food was also fair; not up to par for the usual.
All great. Love this place.
Excellent local Italian restaurant . We go there often and the grandkids love it.
We are get fans of Pizzaria Mandara. Great food and good polite service. As good as much of the Italian restaurants in NYC
Pizzeria Mandara is always accomodating of our small children but still wonderful spot for us parents to enjoy as well. Was a few minutes late for our reservation on a Saturday night, but still sat us right away, brought food super quick for the little ones, and made it an awesome treat after a night out seeing local play.
Another delicious dinner at Pizzeria Mandara. Super good. Our waiter was excellent. We find the quality of food here to be far above most other Italian restaurants.
Overall good food. Service was ridiculously slow.
We always enjoy going to Mandara's - the food is consistently delicious and the service is great!
The restaurant has excellent food and great service. The problem is that there is too much noise. You cannot even hear yourself think. It is a better place to go for lunch when it is less crowed and the noise level is less. Maybe installation of rugs would help. But the food for a pizzeria can't be beat!!!
I have been here many times and their food is delicious and top quality! Pretty restaurant too!
Excellent food in a casual, kid-friendly atmosphere. BYOB!
The food was just alright. The pizza is a lot better than the entrees. Service was fine. Should be better for an Italian place in NJ
Amazing food! A little pricey for area but the food is very good. Noisy for my taste but doesn’t stop me from going back.
The food and service were great! The ricotta bruschetta is delicious for an appetizer!
Food and service were very good. The warm chicken salad was particularly delicious. It was a bit noisy and very chilly every time a customer opened the door.
Solid place. Way more than just a pizzeria. Surprised by the depth of menu options.
The pasta dishes are always freshly made and delicious & there's always plenty for leftovers!
A great, casual experience as always! Good food, nice staff
Great experience and great food . We have been here many times for dinner and will be back again.
It was just too loud, we could not hear each other unless we put effort in to it.
Love the food but back room was ridiculous. A buffer needs to be added; not the 1st time but we normally stick it out.
Food and prices good BUT the noisiest, loudest, place I’ve ever been in
Can’t go back
Never disappointed-always fantastic.
We moved here a year ago and found pizzeria mandera. This has become our "go to" restaurant. If you want a salad and a pizza or a delicious italian meal, you can't go wrong. It does get very busy on the weekends so I do recommend a reservation. It is also a BYOB which makes it a perfect place for dinner.
Dinner with good friends
Been there many times ! This time our waiter was preoccupied talked so quickly you couldn’t understand him. Then asked us to settle the check . He wanted out of there clearly . There were still many patrons still there .
Always a great meal and service. Great time and BYOB.
This is a big step up from your typical pizzeria/restaurant. It's still casual like a pizzeria, but the pastas, sauces, salads, sandwiches are all excellent like a restaurant! Pizzeria Mandara is the perfect balance of both. The food is fresh and tasty, the service is friendly and efficient, and the atmosphere is welcoming.
Great food. Could be very noisy but one of my favorite dinner spots for great Italian food
This is an excellent place for really good food. Although it was quite noisey I will go back. Food was great!
We were babysitting some of our grandkids . Mandara is a perfect children friendly restaurant. They love the spaghetti and meatballs. Will definitely go back with them.
Excellent quality of food, waiters are courteous, although it’s very energetic ambience.
