friends had taken us to mangialardo's several years ago, we remembered the 1960s atmosphere, and wanted to find it again when passing through town. It does not have a website, and never will. thanks to TA we found the name and gps'd the location. It is very "old world" in all ways; probably nothing has changed in at least 20 years. It is indeed horrible looking on the outside, dingy on the inside, however the woodwork around the bar is cool, the retro atmosphere is charming, the waitstaff were fine with us, and the eggplant rollatini and fettuccine alfredo were very good. It is worth a try, unique - definitely an experience, we will be going back.

We have been eating here occasionally for 35 years. Had to go back tonight after reading reviews on TA, to see if there were changes. The facility is, indeed , dark and dinghy. The outside has never been attractive, but the interior definitely needs brightening up big-time. The dour owner was there, but not acting as host tonight. Waitress at the bar was friendly, as she has been for all of the decades we've known her. My meal of ground round Parmesan was superb, as in the past. It's one of my all time favorite meals in this area. Spaghetti was great. House salad was wonderful. Jelly beans by the door are always a treat. Overall, we didn't see much change, although we both agree with many of the less favorable reviews if we view it through a newcomer's eyes.

Exceptional garlic pizza! Bravo for all the Italian home made dishes. I highly recommend this older family run place for a comfortable experience. Good service and nice soft music. Anybody and everybody should try it once.

I came here specifically for the garlic pizza and was not disappointed. The balance of crust, cheese and garlic sauce is just right. Very nicely done, and worthy of its reputation.

We also had pepperoni pizza and the pepperoni were thin enough and cooked just right so that when you bit into one, it actually came apart instead of pulling the entire pepperoni and adjacent cheese and sauce with it. I liked this!

When we pulled up to Mangialardo's ten minutes before opening time, we thought it had gone out of business, since there were no lights on and the parking was empty except for one guy sitting in his truck. But once they opened, a steady stream of people continued arriving and the parking lot was packed by the time we'd finished dinner.

Food is OK, service is OK, prices are OK, atmosphere is less than OK, etc. Nothing stood out about this place, but we were full when we left and we took left overs home.
