Mandola’s Italian Kitchen is a lauded restaurant with locations across Texas and Florida. They’ve already opened a space in Carrollwood, and have kitchens ready to open in Orlando, Odessa, and Oldsmar. The noted Oldsmar location officially opens September 19. Created by Chef and Restaurateur Damian Mandola best known as Co-Founder of Carrabba’s Italian Grill, and his wife and business partner Trina Mandola, Mandola’s has gained notoriety for its phenomenal array of Italian desserts.

The new spot in Oldsmar is located at 3138 Tampa Rd anchoring the AMC Woodlands Square 20 movie theater, ideally situated in the Woodlands Shopping center. Set to employ 60 people, the 5,000-square-foot Mandola’s Italian Kitchen boasts indoor seating for approximately 120 guests, including 750-square feet of patio space for outdoor dining with seating for an additional 65 guests. The backbone of the authentic Italian brand, Mandola’s will also feature its signature Italian menu, hospitable atmosphere, unique beverage offerings and homemade bakery.

“We look forward to expanding further into the Tampa region and bringing our signature food, hospitality and experience to the wonderful communities of Oldsmar and Odessa,” said Chef Damian Mandola. “There is nothing quite like Mandola’s Italian Kitchen and its unique, comfortable atmosphere and fresh, high-quality Italian food, using the recipes that have been in my family for generations. My wife Trina and I are so excited to open these new locations and are anxious to welcome the area’s amazing guests!”

 Guests will be able to enjoy a variety of bold and memorable flavors in each made-from-scratch dish from Mandola’s extensive menu, including fresh pasta, sauces, mozzarella, pizza dough, Italian Wedding soup and much more. Fresh hot focaccia is served complimentary with every entrée, and the restaurant will also feature a wide-ranging list of unique Italian wine and beer offerings to perfectly complement each meal.
