I love this place so much. I love the inexpensive spaghetti and meatball Sunday's they have, but their Manicotti is what keeps me coming back. LOVE IT! Love the environment too. Very quiet and classy.

We just heard that Mangia will close. We hope not. Mangia is cozy with a very Italian feel.The food is very good. Lets hope it is a rumor and will remain open.

I really hate posting less-than-positive reviews. I do know it's difficult to run a great restaurant. But something is very amiss at this one. Upon entering at around 6pm on a Saturday, the place was nearly empty. One person at the bar and 3 patrons...at a table. In spite of this, service was slow! They all seemed very preoccupied, but I couldn't imagine with what! By the time we left there were no other guests in the whole place. The salads were okay, pizza was below average and pasta dishes were reasonably good. All in all, not a great experience, and if this place is open in 6 months I'll be surprised.More

We enjoyed a tasty meal at MKB (new name?). Everything was done to perfection. Our servers were always there when we needed them and took good care of us. I would definitely return!

We happened upon this Restaurant on a Sunday evening stroll downtown. The sign outside has a special of spaghetti and meatballs for a very reasonable price. Loved it. Sat outside on the patio.

The visit began terribly myself and my friend went to lunch for her birthday. We sat in the lounge area near a fireplace when we came in there was one other table with a fireplace but it was occupied. When I said that I wanted...to.sit there my friend mentioned that the table was dirty. At this point the unnamed server/bartender said "When all the tables are clean someone always wants the dirty one, I'll clean it" there were only 5 tables in the area plus the bar I almost asked her why is it dirty and you opened at 2:00, immediately I wanted to leave but my friend wanted to stay. We sat down the mystery woman left the menus sitting on a ledge about 2ft away without giving them to us, my friend grabbed them saying "these must be for us" we sat down at 2:38 there was one man at the bar and a couple at another table. The woman who still hadn't introduced herself brought us water immediately but never returned although we could see her from our seat working the bar roughly 20 feet away. A group of 3 came in and sat at the bar she immediately began listing off the specials there were about 4 dishes I saw them on the sandwich board outside at this point it was 2:54 So I pulled up a chair at the bar and told the mystery woman that we would like to know the specials too and were ready to order, she looked at me like everything was ok and said "oh you're ready?" They only have about 20 items on the menu so why would it take 2 people 20 minutes to choose? So she said ok but then proceeded to help the trio that came In after us and put their orders in first. She then proceded to our table and told us 1 special the 3.50 spaghetti with 1 small meatball compared to the picture on the front door. My friend ordered artichoke dip, the server suggested fish dip ..neither of us understood why the only thing they have in common are they're dips. We both got the special the meatballs can't be made in house they tasted processed it had the consistency of rubber, well seasoned rubber. The sauce tasted like chef boyardee ravioli sauce. The presentation was bad as well it looked like something a teenager made if my phone wasn't dead I would've taken a picture. When she brought the food I said I didn't catch your name..finally...LAURA I'll never forget it because she made me feel so unwanted and uncomfortable I'll never come back. I can only imagine what it's like if its ever busy but I'm sure her attitude alone will ensure that's never the case. When we were waiting on our check a pair of young ladies came in and said they wanted to sit on the patio. Laura said "I haven't opened it yet but I guess I can since you want to sit out there, when I got here there was snow on the table" what's the relevance? The sun was shining at this point and they'd been open for over an hour she made it sound like an inconvenience. What made it worse is she didn't have on a uniform shirt so I think she's a manager! That would be horrible for the establishment if that's the case, either way I will be calling to find out because this doesn't sit well with me. I also ordered a wmu lemonade the drink special it was tasty but weak and the artichoke dip was good although the pita bread served with it was burnt but it was cold...still not worth the 14.26 I spent to be treated in a sub-par fashion and we were supposed to be celebrating....way to go Laura MVP.More

My wife and I had an enjoyable dinner here. This was our first time here and they were very helpful in taking our reservation via Facebook message even though they were not open, and making sure that we were served in time in order to...make it to our show. The food was great! We will be back again!More
