If you want a meal with a fantastic atmosphere this is the place for you. The guys here must put the Hey Baby cd on every time there's a birthday in the house & bring the cake out with a candle on & sing. You would never know they had already done it 50 times the week before. The tribute... More

We have recently moved to the Darwen area. Our first visit to Mangiamo was last year for a family meal. The food was 'OK' we weren't impressed, but it wasn't bad, although not great value for money. To be fair we thought maybe we should try there again, so we tried on Friday night. The starters were ok, wife and... More

I went with my Mum last Wednesday for a meal. We had the 2 course special. It was excellent value for money and one of the best Italian meals I've had for ages. We will definitely be visiting again. The staff are friendly and couldn't do enough for us.

My friend and I went for a meal the other night and as usual the food was very good. In fact the garlic bread (of which to me isn't always the best) was delish, we had goats cheese and red onion on, OMG it was lovely...another plus was the owner Vaz was cooking, always a good sign.. The waiters were... More

We went on Christmas eve with our children (13 + 9) we had previously done an activity in Manchester and we were starving !! They were very prompt with our food but never rushed. They were busy which made for a good atmosphere but still treated us very well.

Recently visited with my partner. We mentioned using our taste card over the phone which wasn't a problem! The atmosphere in the restaurant was lovely with a cosy ambiance. I was torn between quite a few things on the menu and the specials looked great as well. We had starters mains and desserts and we were well and truly stuffed.... More
