Mandola's Italian Kitchen ~ "Foodie" Friday 4/27/18

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

If you're in the mood for really authentic Italian food and live in NW Austin then treat yourself by dropping by a new location for one of the best eateries in Austin, now open in Cedar Park!! I love it that you can find a convenient location to shop their Italian market, make your own or dine with's all good!









Damian Mandola has another winner with the opening of his 5th Mandola's Italian Kitchen in Cedar Park.  What is so unique about Mandola's is that it is also an Italian Market. You can walk into any Mandola's Italian Kitchen and not only have a delicious meal, but, purchase all kinds of wonderful Italian foods from their authentic Italian grocery, bakery or the deli section filled with delicious Italian meats and cheeses.  


Dining in you will find on their pasta menu: Fedelini Pachino - thin spaghetti with cherry tomatoes, garlic, basil and extra virgin olive oil...Tortellini Modo Mio - classic pasta stuffed with chicken, pork, mortadella, proscuitto, ricotta and parmigiano in a cream sauce with mushrooms and peas.  


On the daily specialties menu: Monday - Chicken Capricciosa- breaded, pan browned breast of chicken topped with a salad of arugula, cherry tomatoes, red onions & fresh mozzareella tossed in a balsamic vinegar served with fettucine in a tomato cream sauce...Sunday is pasta day in an Italian family, so on their Sunday menu you'll find Baked Ziti - maccheroni in a sausage ragu with mushrooms, bechamel sauce, romano & mozzarella cheese baked in a casserole.  


For dessert, choose something from the Italian cookie section: Giandujia (a sandwich cookie), Lemon Ricotta cookie or maybe a Cudidati (Sicilian fig cookie). There is also a delicious selection of pastry, gelatos and sorbets.

Hi Dorie... the word "Italian" always gets my attention. I'd love the pasta "Sunday" and baked ziti is one of my favorite dishes.

Hello Dorie,  I love to eat Italian but love to come up with some good recipes also (Go back to dating a girl in College that could make the best Italian food) she taught me lots of good sauces and what to mix together!

We would love to try this restaurant, and I love when they have a market with it.  It reminds me of a restaurant in Rome.  A

Hi Dorie- this is a very familiar name in Houston as well.  I could spend 7 days a week for at least a year in Austin and try a different place every night.
