Mannino Restaurant in Commack, NY
Newly Opened Restaurant in Our Neighborhood
169 Commack Rd, Commack NY 11725
Mannino’s Italian Kitchen has relocated from its original location on Commack Road in Commack to a beautiful new bi-level space on Jericho Turnpike. The owner is still Joe Mannino. This building, which was formerly “ToFu”, has been completely renovated. This traditional Italian fare restaurant now offers seating for about 150 people. There are prompt valet parking attendants, so do not let the lack of parking scare you away!
The first floor features a smaller dining room and a marble-topped bar and upscale lounge area. The bar and lounge area are both nice to wait for your party to be called… but be ready to wait up to an hour as they do not take reservations. The second floor has a much larger dining area and a unique outdoor area. The outdoor area currently has an inviting fire pit and seating to relax around.
I went to this restaurant recently for a special birthday gathering. As with most new restaurant openings, we expected a long wait for the table and for the food. We were lucky enough to only wait ten minutes for a party of six. Our waiter “Luis” was very attentive and informed us about the specials and the progress of our food. All of the entrees cost less $20. I thought it was a nice touch to have chilled plates placed on the table right before our salads. Some of the dishes we tried were the Tortellini, Broccoli Rabe, Chicken Mannino and Rigatoni Vodka. They were all well worth the wait! Luis and staff made every effort to make this dinner a special birthday celebration. We stayed for over three hours catching up, as good friends do, and never felt rushed. We will all definitely go back again to Mannino’s and hope that we can sit outside in the warmer months!
This restaurant was also voted #1 of 89 restaurants in Commack according to TripAdvisor.com so why not give it a try and enjoy!
