From the outstanding wait staff to the delicious food we enjoyed our meal at Mangia Mangia thoroughly. The staff is attentive and knowledgeable with great food and wine suggestions. We found the prices to be more than fair with an $85 bill before tip for three meals, 1 glass of wine, 2 house salads, and 3 delicious cappuccinos. The meal... More

We love this cozy spot. Friendly and comfortable. Enjoy the Antipasti, Salad with Greens and Mushrooms, Spaghetti Bolognese, Grilled Shrimp, and Grilled Salmon. Prices are competitive for the quality.

Mangia Mangia is a neighborhood gem that has a loyal local following, including me. Great italian food prepared and served by an Iranian family who is warm and welcoming. They are great cooks who love food! I have NEVER had a mediocre dish here. Considering how good the food is, it's amazing how hidden from view they are. You will... More

We've been fans of Mangia Mangia for many years. What can one say about a lovely, family-based restaurant where every guest feels special and the food never disappoints? We've celebrated birthdays, lives and each-other and always feel fortunate to be within an ideal environment to do so. It has everything to do with the wonderful family that owns & runs... More

It is expensive, but all the food is locally produced and sustainable! Try the chocolate mousse. The staff are very friendly and caring!

Our friends introduced us to Mangia Mangia in Albany, California. This Italian "ristorante e café" is "a diamond in the rough." One can drive by it without paying any attention and its interior decor is not particularly memorable--the word "simple" comes to mind. However, as they say, "Never judge a book by its cover." The cuisine (and it is just... More

We go back to Mangia Mangia not only because we enjoy eating a local, unique places but also because the food is so good! The food is well-prepared and presented.
