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.

Mangia Bene is located in a little strip mall near a KFC and Pet Food Express but don't let that discourage you! The service is great and the food is even better. The water they give you is sparkling. It is a little restaurant that packs a fantastic Italian cuisine. Treat yourself!

After having a bad dinner experience at Mangia Bene, we decided to try having dinner there,again. The same issue happened, again. The service was poor, with us having to request a waiter for service. We asked for wine and waited 10 minutes before our wine arrived. Waiting a good time for our waiter to give him our food order,. He... More

We discovered this gem a few years ago and keep coming back. If you are looking for fresh ingredients, good size portions with good prices this is the place to go. I love their Osso Bucco veal shanks with roasted vegetables. My husbands always gets their steak which is cooked to perfection. My daughter loves all their pastas which they... More

Mangia Bene has a great menu and delicious food despite its rather plain appearance from the outside
