“Awesome Italian in small town...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

The (owner) Kevin is so accomadating to his customers, very good food & atmosphere. Love the shrimp he makes with a special sauce & pasta, with a side salad & his choice of wine, was a perfect match!
Thanks Kevin~I'll see ya next time!

“Great food--gourmet fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Three of us ate here on a Saturday. Dropped by to see the menu in the afternoon and the chef gave us his card and said to call later to see if they were busy or if we needed a reservation. We called and they held a table for us. Each of us ate one of the Specials: three cheese ravioli w/a bolognese sauce, clams in a cream sauce with artichoke hearts and sundried tomatoes, and a flatiron steak with pasta pomodoro. The ravioli was fabulous! The clam dish was great and so much we had to take some home. The flatiron steak was done perfectly and so tender it was amazing! and the salads and surprise desserts were a special treat. This is definitely a place to visit again. Clearly the chef is trying to give you a great experience without hurting your wallet too much---and he's succeeding.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

The best ravioli I ever had!! Kevin (the owner) goes out of his way to make your meal an experience. He prepares all his sauces and pasta from scratch. His knowledge of wine is also excellent - always knows how to pair his meals with a wine. Wish he had a chain of these restaurants!

“Terrific restaurant, not just for Gold Beach but anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

This is a restaurant with great heart and great food. Our second night in Gold Beach we went to Mangia Buff. Ooooh it was good, particularly the ahi tuna special. We had a great time and Kevin told us about his community night which was the next day. Lucky for us. He set aside a bottle of the wine we had ordered and liked the first night and back we went. What a great party. Lots of great food, lots of great people from the community, Lots of music. It was wonderful.

“Dinner at Mangia Buff, March 28”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

What a fun waiter! I had clams linguini and hubby had Bolognese. This was in a red sauce with sausage and stuffed cheese ravioli. Good!
