I like this place. I will drive over here instead of the Sister restaurant in Benicia Bueno Appetite, Mangia Bene , is just better. they do not have lamb chops all the time but when we had them here they were great. The lamb chops we had the other day in Benicia were not good , same menu, same owner,... More

We have been going to Mangia Bene since they opened and have never been disappointed. The food is always very good and the service excellent. The menu is full of family favorites and there is a daily menu too. The pasta is freshly made, excellent salads with fresh bread and sparkling water at the table. Just 1 block off the... More

Service was wonderful and food delicious. Party of 6 and we ordered Osso Bucco, traditional spaghetti, squash ravioli and several other dishes. Everyone was very pleased with the flavors and quantity of food. We also had an eggplant appetizer that was fabulous. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly. Overall I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Haven't been here in awhile but went for lunch this week with a friend and had the calamari steak and a Caesar salad. Fantastic! I highly recommend a stop there for lunch or dinner you will be very pleased.

The atmosphere is nice. Meals come with sparkling water (yum!) and fresh bread with garlicky-tomato dipping sauce at no charge. The lunch specials are a bit on the pricey side but the portions are moderate and personally, you can fill up on bread and dipping sauce alone!. I ordered the Panini and salad lunch special and as usually, it was... More

Mangia Bene is a favorite of ours! Fresh made pasta dishes and friendly staff. They have daily specials. Love the sparkling water with fresh orange they serve automatically! And the bread and sauce they bring immediately is SO yummy as well!! Only wish at night they would turn down the lights a little for additional atmosphere. Love hearing Frank Sinatra... More

This is a classy place where you will get great food and all the attention you want in a place you would not expect- a little strip mall by the freeway. You will completely forget the outside when you step into this restaurant. Have never been dissapointed!

Mangia Bene is tucked away in a little shopping mall off Morello Blvd. It's unassuming outer appearance gives way to a delightful trattoria with excellent Italian food. Too many favorites to mention. Have never had anything from the menu that did not satisfy.

When we are visiting Martinez we almost always have a meal at Mangia Bene, since it is such a good place. This time there were three of us, two had ravioli dishes and I had the risotto. We were all very happy and ate all of our dishes.
