Fantastic old style supper club. Simple, constant menu. Sides and bread come with your choice of meat. The petite filet is plenty filling, especially with the unmatched grilled garlic bread. I could just eat that alone and leave happy. If you've never been there, it is definitely worth trying.

Mancinis easily trumps it competitors both food and service wise. The food is fantastic except the house salad which looks like it was mass produced. Great steaks and the lobster tail melts in your mouth. We didnt ask for dessert but our server brought out a free cake to go. Our server Shawn was very attentive, pleasant, and fast about getting our food out. Overall this was a great meal experience.

Great old style steak house, nice low lighting, varied seating areas. Really cool bar where they have entertainment some evenings. The steaks were fantastic, our table had both strip and filets. All were cooked perfectly with that great char on them. Baked potato was great actually cooked correctly. Loved the relish plate! A really nice evening out in a lively setting. Would definitely go again when in St. Paul. Menu also has the usual other offerings of fish, chicken, lobster. But no way were we missing the steaks, you smell them when you get inside and it smells yummy.

The Mancini family has owned and operated a restaurant in St. Paul since 1948...and in this location since 1968. There are very good reasons why they have remained in business and expanded the size of the restaurant again and again.

It's two fundamental things:
Very good food
Very good service

The menu is pretty small:

Steak, filet, walleye, chicken and lobster.

You walk in and there are pickle and tomato slices on your table. Entrees come with a salad and baked potato.

The place has hundreds of pictures of Mancini's friends, extended Italian family and various celebrities.

This is a place that honors tradition but remains very up to date in terms of good service.
Strongly recommended.

There are times you cannot get in, or have to wait since they don't take reservations, but it is worth the wait, definitely try back if you cannot wait. Menu is short but everything is top quality. The steaks are beyond delicious. Excellent char flavor, usually cooked spot on. The marinated relishes are unique and have to be tried. Do not order bread, get the grilled garlic toast and you won't regret it. Service is great, and we have had a lot of fun with some of our servers.
