Mmmmmm Mangia Bene!

Great food, friendly service. We usually get it to go and it's always delicious. It's pretty bare bones but still good comfort food.

Everything I eat here is excellent/. My favorite is the butternut squash ravioli with the browned butter and fried sage.... YUMMY! I have been here many times for special occasions. It is a small little place with a few tables, but Excellent service and food. The owner is Italian from somewhere in South America... He is an awesome chef. Prices... More

Probably the 4th or 5th time we have had dinner at Mangia Bene and we have never been disappointed. We have noticed more and more clients which is great because we would miss their food if people did not support this little place. I generally eat their pasta but my wife is much more adventurous and has enjoyed every dish.... More

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
