Had a fun time and I was so impressed. The restaurant is cozy, attractive and the food excellent. I had an Eggplant Rillintini with a beautiful name I don't remember but I remember how delicious as I just had some left overs. Our birthday girl had chicken Papagallo.....I had a bite and it is heavenly. Can't wait to go back!

We took my sister-in-law here for her 72nd birthday. The food and service were excellent. They even served the mini bundt cakes we had for birthday cakes with candles! Definitely will keep this on our list.

Excellent quality Italian food. Owned and operated by 2 brothers. One is the host and runs the front, the other is the head chef. Food is fresh, cooked to order and the pastas are perfection. Loads of garlic bread fresh baked from DeSimone's around the corner.

I had angel hair tomato pasta there. It was the best angel hair pasta ever. Their veal steak is also good.

If you are looking for great Italian food in Northern Orange County, this is just a short drive away. This gem is hidden away in a strip mall, but don't let the exterior fool you. Try one of their daily specials, you usually can't go wrong. The prices are very fair for the quality and portion size you get.

Mangia-Mangia is consistently good with authentic Italian food. I'm in love with the vegetable lasagna. It's filled with all kinds of vegetables-spinach, artichoke hearts, carrots, mushrooms, etc. Top notch restaurant and service. Highly recommend.

I've been here two or three times solo at lunchtime and once with family members for early dinner. There are plenty of vegetarian options, albeit mostly featuring cheese, and usually a fish entree among the dinner specials. The seating was comfortable if not plush, and the obligatory piped-in music wasn't overly loud. I am trying to convince our club to... More

Tasty Italian with lots of variety and always excellent service. Make reservations if you go after 6 PM. Wine list has something for everyone too.

Been going here for years. Consistently good. Owned by 2 brothers, one runs the kitchen & one runs the day to day operation. Their marinara sauce is one of the best I have ever tasted. This is a restaurant that does not cut corners. The quality of the food is excellent. From the Bolognese to the specials, you will find... More

This is a place my family likes fo special occasions. It is small in a strip mall so plan on making reservations. It is an upscale Italian restaurant so probably not the best for small kids.the food is simpley excellent as well as the service.
