Mineo's has been around for a very long time. Tucked away in a small strip center it can be fooling. The atmosphere is great, bar very nice and of course the hosts, GREAT. The food is all cooked to order. Want a special pasta not on the menu? NOT a problem. The seafood is excellent, the steaks also good but... More

We met friends at John Mineo's for cocktails and heavy appetizers on a weeknight. Our friends had reserved a corner table in the bar; we had a fabulous evening. This is a restaurant that we have been to a number of times. Typically it's our "go-to" place when we are looking for upscale Italian and don't want to drive to... More

This was my second time here and it still didn't disappoint. The food and service are excellent. Most food prepared right at your table, our waiter was very knowledge and all the staff was friendly. I had the lobster stuffed filet, which when I got it wasn't what I expected, but was delicious. My plate was clean, lol. Well definitely... More

My husband and I finally used a $100 gift card we were given to enjoy dinner at John Mineo's. We enjoyed the Shrimp Martini, shrimp cocktail. The shrimp were large and flavorful. The sauce was perfect. We had the Mineo's salads. They were good and had just enough dressing. I ordered linguini with clams, he had the lasagna. Your meal... More

John Mineo's has been a fine Italian restaurant for many years and we have visited it not only for dinner but have had personal family events there, as well. It is definitely old-world Italian with it's delicious flavors, decor and service. Yes, it is pricey, but for a nice occasion, anniversary, birthday or such, it is well worth the price.... More

Excellent food & superior service! They make you feel they appreciate your being there. It is expensive, but it is a nice choice for a special celebration or just an ordinary evening that becomes a special memory. Looking forward to our next visit. Thank you!

If you have $100+ burning a hole in your pocket for a night out with your special someone, you should make the trek out to see John Mineo. It's a family establishment where several generations of chef owners have been cooking for the local well-to-dos of the Town and Country area. The menu is classic but brilliantly executed with quite... More

John Mineo's is an italian restaurant located in a small plaza in Town and Country just about 1 mile south of Hwy 40/64 off Mason Road. The food is excellent. It is plated by the servers table side from side burners, which gives it that special touch. The service is very prompt and courteous, but not overbearing. It is a... More

We waited for five minutes before being set. The prices are very expensive for lunch. Our bill was $37.00. I ordered the cheese ravioli which consisted of four 2 to 3 inch raviolis. I paid $2.00 for the salad. The cold sesame seeds bread was available. I ate two slices. My husband had the lobster ravioli. Both were warm not... More
