Our father Nick, opened Mancini's back in 1948 when St. Paul's Italian neighborhood was still thriving only blocks away, along the Upper Levee. Walking through the neighborhood, you could smell Italian bread baking in the big outdoor ovens. In the summer, you could see tomatoes and peppers growing in family gardens.
Every Sunday after church, the family got together for a big pasta dinner. With so many grandparents, aunts and uncles and kids in the house, it was never a quiet meal. Afterwards, the men would go outside to play bocce, talk and drink their homemade wine.
