If you're in KW and you want legit Italian food. Walk a little bit and make your way to Mangia,Mangia. What a great place with a very cool staff that is more than willing and able to help you through their creative menu. We started with Asparagus Gratin with plum tomatoes. Minestrone was also delicious. There is no pizza, just... More

We really enjoyed dining in this restaurant. Felt very homey and comfortable. The food is wonderful. We shared a salad, which was still huge. We each got pasta dishes that were house made pasta and were incredible. Only problem was that the portions are huge. Had to try the tiramiso for dessert - maybe the best we have had. Ever.

This place is a small restaurant but packs some of the best seafood and pasta I have ever come across and the portions are quite large and packed with seafood. Don't be fooled be the decor and try the lobster scampi you won't be disappointed. Can't wait to return in six months.

We always go to Mangia Mangia when in Key West; it is a hidden gem for the locals. Inexpensive and they make all of their own pasta. They even make whole wheat and gluten free rice pasta. The selection of pasta dishes and wine is great so there is something for everyone. My husband always gets the linguini with clam... More

We went to Mangia Mangia for my 40th birthday. I was very excited as i had heard that they have fresh pasta. I got the Fruit di Mare. I guess i expected it to be more flavorful? More Exciting? I like flavors to be bursting out of it. It was good but just felt a little bland. I tried extra... More

Large portions,very well prepared, home made pasta, inexpensive and to die for garlic bread. What is there not to like?

The food was excellent. The pasta is home made on the premises. The little back patio had wonderful ambiance. Staff was very friendly. Would highly recommend.

First visit went well, all our main meals were lovely. Scallops and pesto pasta amazing, so big it would have fed two. It has a lovely little courtyard and we spent a couple of hours there. The only thing I felt was the bruchetta (sorry about spelling) was odd, probably authentic but really not for us. PLease give it a... More

This is the second Thanksgiving dinner I've had with my family here. My husband loves the fettuccine and crab dish, and I love the chicken parm. Staff is very friendly and very accommodating of my three little kids. We've done both indoor and outdoor seating (we prefer outdoor if the weather cooperates). Only downside is the lack of a kids...

The fact that they make all their own pasta was why we all wanted to try this place. Unfortunately everything else was tasteless. I ordered just a simple tomato sauce with some fettuccine pasta. The plate came loaded, but the sauce was flavourless and very watery. You would think that with fresh homemade pastas the sauces would also be fresh... More
