Excellent food, nice small venue (reservations a good idea). As with all restaurants, they could use more staff if they can find. The sole person doing servicing did very good and was quite attentive. Will definitely come again, it could be a regular visit for...us.More

From Maine …stopped in St Andrews then came to PEI. We were burnt out on Seafood and was Carving Italian. Nothing in Cavendish . Googled & found Buono Mangia..saw the Great Reviews & Menu and went to Charlottetown. Great scenic , nice to get out...the Touristy Side of PEI. We were a bit nervous, only a few cars out Front? Once we WAlked in smelled the aroma of Italian cooking , it was All Good. Started with salads and home made dressings…with delicate rolls accompanied it. Yum. Hubby had the special , homemade Tagliolini pasta with chicken , sun dried tomatoes , spinach and spicy cream sauce . I had fettuccine carbonara ..both dishes came garlic toast. The special was spectacular , I couldn’t keep my garlic toast out my hubbys spicy cream sauce. Not a Big operation ..a few seats and 1 fabulous server. ..and don’t be in a Hurry. I lived in Boston …this beats the North End.More

Food was fine. Had the lasagne. Nothing special but i could taste the homemade ricotta and that was good. Caesar salad dressing tasted like it was from a bottle. Decor is really outdated.

Quiet little restaurant, food is very good, we go there about once per month. You need to make a reservation, call during the day, leave your request and they will call you back about 4 PM. The service is pretty good but sometimes you are...left waiting while the only waitress has long chats with other customers.More

This restaurant was so lovely. The staff is so friendly and welcoming, all the ingredients were locally sourced, the incredible pastas are made from scratch, and the vibes are incredible. I can’t wait to come back and try more items from the menu. I had...the funghi tagliolini and it was superb!More

You really DO need a reservation! This restaurant is small with only one server, but terrific. The service was cheerful and attentive. The caprese and house salads were very tasty. The cannelloni and tagliolini with sausage - all very good. Nice wine selection by the...glass, half liter, bottle. Reasonable prices. Would definitely go again.More

My wife and I have visited Buono Mangia for several years (since they were in their old location!). It has been quite some time since we were last year (haven't gotten out much due to young children + pandemic). We finally got back the other...day for our Anniversary and happy to report that it's still as great if not better than ever. The food and service was great as always. We'd love to see a few more options on the wine list, but there's enough there to satisfy most.More

We arrived a bit earlier than our reservation - we were welcomed & everything was ready. Very enjoyable service and lots of information about whatever dishes we were considering from the menu. Extremely knowledgeable staff and attentive service. This is a hidden gem and worth...checking out. Lots of variety and absolutely delicious food. We'll be back!More

My husband and I discover Buono Mangia by accident several tears ago - It is my favourite place to go for great Italian food. Always my pick for my birthday and I love to introduce guests to the great food when they come to Charlottetown.

We really, really enjoyed the meals we ordered. BUT our plates were only half-full when they came with the cheese! And having staff chatter off and on to other guests while not attending to others was a bit off putting. And when we asked for...a couple more pieces of bread we were told that it would take quite a while and there would be a charge. Too bad, but we;ll not go again. Only wish there was somewhere else in this city serving such great Italian fare.More

Everything was perfect. The drive was short. It was wet and cold !!! The food was hot and tasted great and the wine was a good complement to the meal. The service was prompt and polite. We shall be back for more.

It is hard to decide where to start with what was wrong. The food was horrible with "fresh" pasta that was anything but. One of the kids said it tasted just like Chef Boyardee, which was a very accurate description. We got the spinach dip,...and it came with 3 small pieces of bread, which left well over half of the dip left with nothing to eat with it. The brushetta bread was so over cooked we were glad there was only 2 small pieces. (Think grocery store $3 bruschetta stick) The wait staff was horrible, reminiscent of a very old lady who can't remember why she is there, but she knows it is NO to serve food. Then an elderly man who had difficulty walking came in and sat at the first table he saw. She gave him such a hard time, and was so rude, he left, along with the 4 others who came in after and watched it. We were the only table seated, the rest was empty, she was the only wait staff, so we couldn't figure out the issue. It advertises as an Italian restaurant, and has an very brightly lit dining room, playing loud Christian rock/country music. By the time left, were laughing at just how bad EVERYTHING was, and joking if we really can trust Tripadvisor reviews !More

Tried this restaurant because of the Trip Advisor reviews. We had a wonderful dinner. We both had Caesar salad. I had lasagna and my husband had shrimp scampi. The food was incredible. The wine was perfect. The roll and butter were delicious. Hooie was our...waitress and she was friendly and efficient. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Oh, they make their own pasta, too😉More
