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.

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

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