- "Why don't you come back to the choir? I mean you had a pretty good voice."
- —A man outside the Mandolin Church, urging Allegretto to come back to the church's choir.
Mandolin Church is a church located within the heart of the town of Ritardando in the World of Eternal Sonata. It serves as the primary religious center for the village's residents and is also host to a choir. Within the church is the Mandolin Church Catacombs, which once served as a shelter against pirate attacks.
The Mandolin Church can be visited as early as Chapter 1, but there is little to do there other than talk with the Priest, who will offer free healing to Allegretto and Beat. In Chapter 5, however, when Allegretto and Beat give Frederic a tour of the village, they discover a commotion outside the church. They find that some people heard strange voices coming from the grotto area underneath the church. The lady from the bakery recognizes Allegretto and Beat as the thieves who have been stealing her bread and the crowd orders the group to go inside and find out what's causing the commotion. They reluctantly head in and after they enter, they are soon reunited with the rest of the party, whom they had been split with, sans Polka, who has gone to visit her mother in Tenuto Village and Falsetto, who is missing. Seeing everyone there, Allegretto dumps the group to go fetch Polka, and they are left to head into the Mandolin Church Catacombs and deal with what turns out to be a monster infestation.
