Eric Mancini, founder of Mancini’s Restaurant, migrated to Australia with his family by boat when he was just 4 years old. His family brought with them the love of food and the traditions of Naples, Italy.
Food was a great part of Eric’s life growing up as was hospitality which he learned working in his parents’ function centre. When he decided to open his own restaurant in 1992 his mother, the late Anna Mancini, worked in the kitchen as Head Chef. Her traditional knowledge of Italian cuisine, passed on to her by earlier generations and her utilisation of specific ingredients helped to produce quality food. Anna’s methods are still used today in all our cooking. Eric Mancini was one of the first in Australia to introduce the woodfired oven all the way from Naples his birth town.
Having been established in Belfield for over 25 years, Mancini’s is indeed an icon of Belfield. People come from all over Sydney to experience our traditional pizzas and delicious food. Eric’s mission is to offer his patrons the best Italian food with great service in a warm and inviting environment.
