Mangia Bene us a pretty popular restaurant in Martinez, so I have to consider the possibility that our experience was not the norm. With that caveat, I still have to say we will never return. 3 of us went to Mangia Bene fairly early in the dinner hour, I think it was not yet 6:30. We had just come from... More

My wife and I had our first date here and have enjoyed it ever since. For the last eight years we've eaten here and have never had a bad experience!

I had a meeting nearby and needed a quick place for lunch; but I'm pretty picky. After reading several reviews, I chose Mangia Bene and was pleasantly surprised. Although not great, it was certainly passable, especially the salad selection. I loves me a good salad with spiced nuts and fruit and there were 3 of them of on the menu.... More

My husband decided to try this place again and were not very pleased. The waitress was fine but the food mediocre at best. We each ordered pasta, mine was shells with chicken, sun dried tomatoes and broccoli. It came swimming in lobster sauce, way too much and the shells were almost mush. The other dish was spaghetti with seafood which... More

A small understated place in a strip mall with great Italian food. I have eaten there many times and the food is always top notch

Medium sized white table cloth dining with above average menu. Well prepared and presented. The servers are all family and know the intricacies of the pastas, sauces, fish, and beef choices. Fifteen years in a hidden away strip mall. Don't tell anyone else, just take a favorite friend or relative.

funny location in a little strip mall with Petco, KFC, Mountain Mike's Pizza and a few other random places - but Mangia Bene is a real find. Fresh pasta - always tasty specials - friendly staff - it all works to make this a fun date night or just a great night out.

One of my favorite local restaurants. They have regularly changing daily specials, plus a large standard menu. The staff is always friendly, and the food is delicious! Too many favorites to list. No delivery, but food is ready quick for pick-up...

This restaurant provided excellent service. The servings were plentiful and the flavors blended beautifully. One dish was the smoked salmon and gnocchi. The salmon was very fresh tasting and they didn't scrimp in the amount of fish served in the dish. Another dish we ordered was the Ravioli di Formaggio with browned butter & sage. This dish was excellent and... More
