Mandara is our absolute favorite place to eat! It never disappoints. It has the best pizza in Bergen County by far!

This was the second time eating at Pizzeria Mandara. The food was excellent. We were never rushed out, which was awesome since both times we came with friends which we don' see often. The additional people we brought had never been here before so hopefully they enjoyed as much as we did and will come again.

We are long time diners at Pizzeria Mandara. Always a delicious meal and good service. Chicken Michaelangelo is a great favorite as is their minestrone soup. We always enjoy Pizzeria Mandara.

The best part about coming here is the items on the regular menu are so darn good it doesn't even matter what the specials are. The sherry wine sauce is spectacular and there are at least two dishes that have it. If you are just in the mood for a sandwich you can't beat their eggplant parm. We come here fairly regularly and have never been disappointed. The staff are very helpful and friendly adding to your dining experience.

We love this place. The food and service is always great. The sauces on their dishes are fantastic. Never had a bad meal. Service is always great. You can bring your own wine and there is no corking charge. Desserts are delicious. You cannot go wrong eating here.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!
