This is not fine dining - this is very good red sauce italian comfort food with very good wines. It's also a Key West classic. We like to sit in the garden drinking good red wine & munching on a appetizer while people watching, and deciding which pasta & sauce combo to order. The pasta and... read more

If you're looking for amazing Italian food while in Key West, take the nice stroll to Mangia Mangia. Located in a nice corner store front, the staff and ambiance is perfect. The menu has a variety of freshly made pastas, with seafood, chicken or a variety of sauces. Very reasonably priced and has room for a party of 6, however... More

We wandered in here on a week night - early without reservations. It's off the beaten path - didn't see dedicated parking but we were walking. I heard them say they are dog friendly (patio?). Very attentive wait staff. Average Key West prices. No specials. Enormous wine list - could barely lift the book! We had the "zoodles" (zucchini pasta),... More

My Mom & I tried this out on our recent trip to Key West. It was delicious! We sat outside, the patio was beautiful. We could only eat half our meals, but they were still very good the next day!

This little pasta place was recommended by Roy, the owner of Heron House, and it was excellent. ALL homemade pasta without the standard Italian restaurant meals--by standard I mean they add their own touch to all their dishes--so we concentrated on the House Specialities. We all ordered something different, one of our party ordered the Mahi Mahi grilled--ALL the dishes... More

This cafe was recommended by a local and reviews were good. Yikes! Not good. Ordered the moz salad and the tomatoes were quite tough with no flavor. Wasn't overally bothered by this as tomatoes are not in season so not a good choice for this time of year. However ordered fettuccine and it was just as bad. While the noodles... More

Always a consistent choice for good old fashioned Italian comfort food in Key West! Lovely spaghetti carbonara, yummy pasta with mushrooms, peas and chicken, and a delightful side of rappini sautéed with garlic and tomatoes. The staff is attentive and knowledgeable and the wine list is far more extensive than one would expect! Excellent way to start our Key West... More

There were 15 of us at dinner and the service was great despite the large group. Everyone was happy with their dinner. My pasta dish was a large portion and tasted fresh. Friendly staff and good food.
