This place is like walking into a different era. The decor is reminiscent of a 60s supper club. Red leather, dim lighting, lots of brass, and rounded booths. If this kind of atmosphere doesn't appeal to you because it's not "new enough," stop right there,...More

They do take reservations.
Is this in a safe part of town? Is there a medium range motel/hotel in the area? My friends have Mancini's as top priority on their trip.
