Mandola’s Italian Kitchen

By Danielle Hauser | April 19, 2023

As a frequent visitor to Oldsmar, the closure of Ruby Tuesday and subsequent construction caught my eye over the past months.

Always on the lookout for new restaurants to try, I kept checking the SeaGlass Tavern website for menu information and an opening date.

Luckily, my […]
