“A Disappointment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Lets start this review by prefacing it with the understanding that to me good pizza is a Northeastern thin crust product not a thick doughy excuse which is best called Chicago style pizza. That distinction being made, by my standards, Mangino's offers Chicago Pizza as opposed to classic pizza.

That said Mangino's is a cute take out oriented operation stuffed into a small storefront, thus lacking the capacity for much dining in experience. Their pies are offered in three sizes, come with a sweet tomato sauce, gobs of cheese and a multitude of different optional toppings. They also offer an assortment of appetizers and salad which includes a good Italian wedding soup..
Our large cheese and meatball pie looked better than it really turned out to be due in large part to its Chicago hertigage. While it might serve to limit its customer base, outfits such as Mangino's might be better served by qualifying their ads, online and conventional, to showing that their product is Chicago style.

To me This was a waste of. Time and money.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

This is more of a take-out place than "dine-in" but there is seating outside which is where we sat. As we drank our beers while waiting for our order, we noticed lots of people coming/going with orders. We ordered a large pizza with a few toppings and the pizza was delicious. It was so big that we ended up taking 1/2 home. Lots of people going in to pickup their take-out orders. Next time I'm there, I'm trying the eggplant parmigiana. Everything on the menu looked great.

“Soup & dessert only”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Must try the wedding soup & cannolies SKIP everything else. Wanted to call and express it to them but thought it was a waste of time. Even thought about ordering them a real Stromboli so they knew what to do next time but, I thought I wasted enough money with them. The wedding soup is excellent I will continue stopping by to get it and mini cannolies To go and order real GOOD Italian elsewhere

“Worst pizza ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Chain pizza is better than this...the crust was so thick and so hard it was inedible, the sauce is so super sweet that is throws your entire taste buds into a loop. Never again.

“Family owned - Great Italian Varieties”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

I found this place a while ago and have been returning to it on a regular basis. Excellent pizza, great meatball subs and lots of other choices. Consistently good - worth trying the menu items that are not on other menus - Strombolis and sausage breads are great.
