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

Our evening ruined. The owner/ server broke the cork of our wine bottle. Food came in super late. Will never ever come back. Bad food. Bad service and super negative attitude.

This is our first time to dine at Buono Mangia. Place is small in size but cozy. We had the house special which was fettuccine with chicken and it was very good. The garlic bread that comes with it was very good as well so...was the bread rolls that we served at the beginning. Honestly this is the best home made pasta I tasted in PEI. Hat off to the owners! Forget that the service was excellent.More

Made from scratch pasta and sauces served in a small, cosy dining room...Personalized service from the two owners..He in the kitchen and Hooey out front waiting tables...A fun night out in a venue with a decent wine list and great food...Attentive service, just like she...owned the place!! We have become regulars after our first visit a couple of weeks ago...Love it....Try it..you will too....Marie and JimMore

This is a very small little cozy restaurant and I highly recommend making reservations. The food is Italian and made from scratch and it was delicious. I also had dessert which was also scratch made and delicious. Our waitress was fantastic.
