Mandola’s Cedar Park

Mandola's Italian Market Buona NotteBenvenuto, Mandola’s!

As a former resident of Tuscany, Italy, I’m always on the hunt for authentic Italian experiences here in Central Texas. So with the news about the newest Mandola’s Italian Kitchen coming to Cedar Park I knew we were in for some exciting eats and sweets at this local Italian favorite. What’s on the inside truly counts at this Italian hotspot deep in the hearts of Texans!

Mandola’s Cedar Park Fast Facts: 
Grand Opening Day: Monday, April 16, 2018
Address: 12100 W. Parmer Lane, Suite 200, Cedar Park, TX 78613 (in The Presidio)

My marketing director wormed our way onto the short list to attend this week’s soft grand opening and I’d thought I share this fresh-baked post with friends and neighbors who are excited about the Italian eatery’s arrival as Mandola’s most northern location in the greater Austin metro. Let’s have a peek!

Mandolas Cedar Park Outdoor PatioParents can enjoy their meal al fresco while they watch their kids in the outdoor play area that’s adjacent to the patio. Psst: The patio will allow dogs!

Mandolas Cedar Park Bakery and Gelateria

Once inside you’re mere steps from some of the tastiest bakery items, gelato, and caffè.

Mandolas Cedar Park Fried Mozzarella

A great way to start your meal is with fried mozzarella and marinara. The best this side of the Pecos. And handmade daily!

Mandola's Cedar Park Tortellini Modo Mio

I enjoyed the Tortellini Modo Mio (tortellini “my way”). It’s pasta stuffed with chicken, pork, mortadella, prosciutto, ricotta and parmigiano – topped with a cream sauce with peas and mushrooms! Oh, Mangia!

Mandola's Cedar Park Wine Bar

While Mandola’s Cedar Park is missing the Italian Market found in their other locations it has a wonderful wine bar that offers full food service. “Obet” took great care of us!

Mandola's Cedar Park Main Dining Room

The main dining room is alive with the colors, aromas, and flair of Italy.

Cedar Park Mandola's Bakery Items

It was back to the bakery for me! My favorites were the Pignolli, Anginetti and the hand dipped Chocolate Espresso cookies.

Mandola's Cedar Park Gelato

A great accompaniment to the bakery items is gelato. Pistachio and stracciatella are molto bene!

Mandola's Cedar Park La Vita“Life is too short to eat and drink badly”

I enjoyed shaking hands with Damian Mandola, a friendly foodie force behind this bustling Italian ristorante. Damian gave us all a brief Italian lesson about the meaning of this sign; our friend Celeste was quick to capture this foto for the memory books. It was truly a night to remember!

In addition to my sweet pre-sampling of Mandola’s Cedar Park, I look forward to their grand opening this week! You’ll likely find me and my Dogs on the patio enjoying the rays of the setting sun along with food, friends, and laughter.
