This restaurant is a little gem, really good atmosphere, food always lovely, my favourite..... too many to mention, but definitely the lasagne or king prawns. The staff are always so friendly and can't do enough for you, they always make you feel welcome. The manager is often about asking customers how the food is and is genuinely interested in ensuring...

I have been visiting this restaurant for years and I have never had to send my food back.. I did last night. I had the bruschetta mangiamo and my bread was obviously a white bloomer loaf that had been microwaved !! I couldn't cut it with the knife let alone eat it. I asked the waiters what's gone wrong, I... More

The food was quite good but portions were a wee bit on the small side. I had to have something to eat when I got back home just one hour later. You did get the impression that you had to eat up and go as to make room for the next customers.

This restaurant is very unassuming from the outside and when you first walk in I would recommend that you book if you are going over the weekend or you may be disappointed. The food is not overpriced and oversized which is good as there's plenty and a 2 course meal with drinks and coffees cost just under £80 on a... More

My doubts were first founded when I saw two men, one in a in chefs apron and another possible commis chef unkempt and smoking cigarettes at the rear of the restaurant. My girlfriend and I entered and were shown to a table. Having perused the menu I uncharacteristically chose "ribs in a Jack Daniels sauce" the five skinny ribs came,... More

My favourite family run Italian restaurant with traditional Italian food, lovely atmosphere, lovely family staff, and the food is perfecto. give it a try, they even have deals during the week and music at times to enjoy with a great meal. My wife and I love the food there. try it, you'll be coming back again.

Whenever I feel like an Italian meal (which is quite often!) I always head for Mangiamo's. The special offers are great but I would definitely recommend giving the a la carte menu a look. On this occasion we arrived a little early but the manager allowed us to wait in the lounge area and have a drink before showing us... More

I've been to Mangiamo's many times before with family, friends and as a couple. The resteraunt suits every type of occassion which, being rare to find, makes Mangiamo's an excellent resteraunt. There's always something going on - either a magician, live music or even the resteraunt workers coming out to sing happy birthday to unsuspecting customers! The atmousphere is brilliant,... More
