Have dined here on several occasions and never been disappointed. Recommend the garlic bread, starters and pasta dishes washed down with the house white. Only had cause to complain once when I had a steak which did not live up to expectations but was refunded without hesitation when I went to pay the bill (even though I did not ask... More

Went to a Robbie tribute evening and could not get out of my seat once seated. Could not even get to the bar and hardly saw a waitor to order a drink. Food wasn't good either and drinks mega expensive (when I could finally order one)

OK I live in Darwen but think it has to be over ten years since I last went to Mangiamo... why I do not know... the food is excellent and the staff are lovely... the offer of 2 courses for £9.99 or 3 for £12.99 is great BUT do watch out for the little add-ons as they do add up!... More

Went last November for Dave's 50th with his family. Some had come from as far as Whalley and felt it was a wasted journey. Food poor, service OK, got the bill wrong - which others have since told me is quite normal. Very unlikely to go again.

Went for a friends birthday, a group of 9 females. We were serenaded by the singer Rik Lee, great voice, very Michael Buble. The staff were very attentive, service was quick, food was lovely and reasonably priced and one of the waiters even joined us for a dance. He was very funny, pretending to sing into the pepper mill. Brilliant... More

Not the cheapest steak I've ever bought but worth every penny as it was lovely. The only chef I know that does a proper cooked medium steak. Ok it needs a little updating in places but it looks better than the first time I visited. Staff were brilliant, even with two parties in we were served quickly. Just wish I... More

Friendly staff, FANTASTIC food! The steak sauces are all superb. The pollo gyros comes with a delicious feta salad! Yum yum! Great for a quiet dinner, family meal or large group! Ticks all the boxes.
