Very pleasant, real Italian BYOB.

Great place for casual dining. If they would take reservations they'd be perfect

We have been to Mangia, Mangia twice now and both times were excellent-atmosphere, food, and service were all great. Homemade sauces stand out and the owner is present to check on things. BYOB so the dinner bill is quite reasonable. Absolulutely recommend-everyone present enjoyed it.

When you have Soprano's, Fennici's and Palermo's...why even bother with this place? The previous reviews are correct in that you don't get your money's worth with a pasta dish. There is much wrong with this place; but I was in utter disbelief when after finishing our meal the server told us to come back when the food is fresh. "The... More

Atmosphere was ok, but loud, so not a place to have a great conversation. Foof was average, not bad, better than fair but not great. Missing some finishing touches for the price. Would probably go back to try again.

I thought the portion size was a little small for the price but I kind of expected that. Overall is was a good experience and would go back.The place is loud so not good for a romantic dinner for 2.

There were 4 married couples in our group and everyone enjoyed their meals. I personally felt I got a fair amount of food for the price and it was well seasoned. I have become disappointed with the flavor of the food at many of the other Italian restaurants in the area. It seems to me that many restaurants make their... More

The service was slow. The portions of food were small for the price. I felt like I was given a half order. The $9 calamari was extremely salty. We had to return it. Our entrees were fine, not great. The most glaring part was how extremely loud the restaurant was. It sounded like everyone was yelling. It hurt our ears... More

I ordered a brewed iced tea and the waitress brought out artificial sweeteners. When I asked for sugar she acted like she was surprised that I would even ask for real sugar and couldn't find any when going in the back to look? Very odd. While waiting, my husband asked for more focaccia bread and when the basket came back,... More

We were a party of nine who made reservations in advance. The staff was nice, however, we will not be going back. Concerning the service: The server walked away without taking our guest of honor's order. The appetizers were served too far apart (about a 7 min.difference). We ordered 5 desserts. Two were initially served, two more a few minutes... More
