Main courses included; Pollo Alla Scarpariello ; every Italian eatery has this classic, but the Mannino’s put a little twist on the typical. A Half chicken was presented, uncut with sliced fingerling potatoes and sweet sausage, accentuated with garlic, rosemary in a light lemon and wine sauce. Higher notes of lemon, seem to cut through any signs of saltiness, elevating overall flavor.White meat can be dry, but this was ten- der and juicy. Cowboy Style Ribeye ; the star of the show was set in a hickory rub for a full day. A bountiful 24 oz cut was plated sliced. A charred encrusted herbs exterior, yet marbleized and juicy within, made this dish “Steak Italiano” style.The herb marinade made the steak stand apart from the traditional broil. Rib-eye is my favorite cut that packs an intense flavor profile. Mannino’s steakhouse quality meat, will not disap- point. A must on your next visit. After the preceding, one dessert was all we could handle: Red Vel- vet Layer Cake ; a generous slice, layered with vanilla cream, drizzled with an irresistible chocolate and raspberry sauce, then crowned with fresh raspberries.With a classic cappuccino, forget about it! After our meal, I sat with Joe Mannino for a few minutes and simply asked, what has been the secret to the success of the Mannino brand? In Joe’s own words;“It’s no secret at all. My brothers and I work on mak- ing our business better every single day.We are hands on operators and still, after 24 years, go into the kitchen, roll up our sleeves and cook.That aside, we keep our employees engaged and stress the importance of how to best present our hospitality to our loyal clientele.” “The goal has been and will always be, to make certain that every sin- gle plate that is placed in front of our customers exceeds expectations.” Our focus this evening was on the food. For the wine enthusiast, be sure to know, that Mannino’s staff will assist in pairing your meal with just the right glass of vino. Be ready to have your senses elevated beyond your expectations.
