A lot of Italian for a little American

Great Italian restaurant off the beaten path! We sat in a lovely patio courtyard and dined on conch minestrone soup, and seafood sauces over fresh homemade pasta. The service was attentive and friendly and the bill didn't break the bank

This place is not italian. My daughter had Fettuccine Alfredo that tasted like a bowel of plan regatta goup. The rude waitress got mad when I complained. I ordered just plain pasta and marinara instead but it was so long of a wait that I felt bad so gave my daughter my pasta with meat sauce instead of her watching... More

Something has changed in the kitchen and not for the better. One used to be able to walk down Southard Street from White or Simonton and within a block in, you'd smell the lovely aroma of garlic from Mangia Mangia. Last evening that was lacking and may be the reason why my meal was flavorless, unless I added lots of... More

Huge selection of pasta dishes. Check out their menu. Very experienced wait staff. Inexpensive wine selection to complement your food. Plan on taking home a doggy bag...large portions.

Choose your favorite pasta, sauce, protein; or order one of their stellar specialty combinations. Always fresh, delicious and spot-on. One of these visits I will have enough sense to split the entree. Always too much to finish!

We were looking for a place to grab something to eat at night. We found this cute little Italian Restaurant. We ordered to take out, even though most people were eating in. The lady was so sweet. We got our order quickly, and when we got to our room we were pleasantly surprised by how delicious the food was. i... More

Wow...this use to be one of my favorite pasta restraunts in the country and now it was all I could do to finish my meal. Not sure what happened to the kitchen but will not be returning there any time I return to Key West.

This is another Key West restaurant that I return to every time I visit Key West. Can't beat the pasta w/ mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach, feta, garlic, and garbanzo beans. Delicious!

This was our second visit to Mangia Mangia and it was just as good as our first. The bonus was they have a selection of gluten free pasta which is hard to find (well anything gluten free) in Key West. Great atmosphere (we dined outside) and the service was excellent!
