“BEST ITALIAN IN CAPE CORAL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

First the pizza is NY style pizza...being from ny i can truly say it is an awesome pie! The scillcian pizza is awesome as well. I have tried other places in cape coral and this is far the best....The food is wonderful, has that homemade style..the sauce to the soups!..Love the chicken parm! wife loves the ziti!....This is a cape coral gem!!!!....Keep turning out those wonderful pizzas! Anyone who dislikes this place has never truly had NY italaian pizza from NY!
Only complaint wish the restaurant was bigger, with the tables in the middle and small booths....but we go there to EAT!

“Great Food for a Fair Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

My husband & I had dinner at Mangia Bene last Thrusday night the food was wonderful. They had just put down new flooring and had new lights installed. The atmosphere and decor was fantastic.

We had rib eye steaks. The price was fair I decided to pay an upcharge and get a side of fettuccine alfredo with it instead of spaghetti. The alfredo sauce was great. I love the rolls there.

Everything was cooked to order and the waitress went beyond the call of duty to make sure we were well tken care of.

“Ewww and Yuck. Nothing personal but wow this place is horrible.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

One of the worst experiences I have ever had dining out. Very rude staff/owners. The food was fair at best until you consider the price you pay, then it is horrible. I will not be returning.

“After the salad-Fageddabowdit!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

The waitress was polite. Drinks came quickly. Conversation was good and
friendly. A salad came quickly and was good, if sparely adorned. Then the waitress
decided to leave as her shift was over and introduced us to the takeover gal. We
waited and waited and waited-30 minutes for a hot sub and a calzone. I was just about
to get up and leave and the food came-each serving sitting all alone on an empty plate.
Both sandwich and calzone were blah. The dipping sauce had an "off" taste and the
eggplant parmesan was soggy and a little bit sourish. Never go back again. the
help outnumbered the customers. They must be making money at the bar or at the
horse track-not on the food and service!

“Pretty good Italian food for a decent price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

The food is pretty good. They've been here a while with the same owner. Nothing disappointing.
