CLOSED - Mingalone's location in Bayou Place makes it perfect for a meal before or after the show. This authentic Italian restaurant has a delightful Tuscan atmosphere, with a patio for people-watching. Items prepared on the wood-burning grill or oven, such as pizza, chicken and fish dishes, have that slightly smoky flavor that comes only with real wood. Fresh pasta dishes abound, and the Frangelico cake is a must.
