Mangia Mangia is a neighborhood gem that has a loyal local following, including me. Great italian food prepared and served by an Iranian family who is warm and welcoming. They are great cooks who love food! I have NEVER had a mediocre dish here. Considering how good the food is, it's amazing how hidden from view they are. You will... More

We've been fans of Mangia Mangia for many years. What can one say about a lovely, family-based restaurant where every guest feels special and the food never disappoints? We've celebrated birthdays, lives and each-other and always feel fortunate to be within an ideal environment to do so. It has everything to do with the wonderful family that owns & runs... More

It is expensive, but all the food is locally produced and sustainable! Try the chocolate mousse. The staff are very friendly and caring!

Our friends introduced us to Mangia Mangia in Albany, California. This Italian "ristorante e café" is "a diamond in the rough." One can drive by it without paying any attention and its interior decor is not particularly memorable--the word "simple" comes to mind. However, as they say, "Never judge a book by its cover." The cuisine (and it is just... More

We go back to Mangia Mangia not only because we enjoy eating a local, unique places but also because the food is so good! The food is well-prepared and presented. Come early if you want the soup du jour as they often run out and their soups are tasty and delicious. The salad was tasty (baby greens with warm goat... More

I've eaten here several times in the past and it always is warm and friendly. The menu selections seem to fit anyone's pallat. The prices are very reasonable. The all female chefs really know how to cook with a old country flair.

We really enjoyed our dinner. It was late - 8:15 and we were seated immediately. The soup of the day must have been really good because it was gone by the time we got there're but the fresh tomato/mushroom was even better. The arugula and goat cheese salad was fresh. Best of all was the veal dish we had as... More

Great Italian food in a local setting - blink and you'll miss the restaurant as you are driving up San Pablo (just north of Solano). Parking is on the street and behind in the lot by Merchant's Bank (after hours). The service and attention was excellent though I have to say the matriarch (I believe) was a bit brusque since...
