M&Ns is in the old site of a series of failed Italian restaurants (as well as a Capriotti's) in Lantana Sq. Its been open about a month and is pretty busy. They've spent some money redoing the place and the bar section is big and pleasant. The dining area in back is not much different from the last owner. An outside dining (smoking?) section has been added.

Waitstaff is inexperienced though friendly. The males seem to wear whatever they want and aren't recognizable as servers, which is an annoyance.

Food is OK. We've been there a few times. Chicken dishes have been overcooked on more than one occasion. The "porkette" sandwich (a specialty...roast pork , broc.rabe and provolone) was not great. The roast pork was dry (ie overcooked) and in need of some spices. It was far from a Philly roast pork sandwich. Pastas were nice, though the sauce was a little runny on one of them. Pizza was very cheesy, perhaps too much, and the sauce was a bit sweet.
