The italian food at Mangia Mangia is truly great. Each of the four meals we ordered was delicious and delivered quickly. The price was $80 plus tip for four of us, so it was on the expensive side. With two soft drinks and no alcohol or desert. The atmosphere was casual and the service was great. I wondered why the... More

Our anniversary dinner was a disappointment. This used to be a fantastic dinner spot. We ordered the special drink advertised, but they were "all out". Some of our dinner choices were not available, "all out". The appetizer bread wasn't served. We had to ask for it and it wasn't brought to us until our meals were finished. Our dinner orders...

Can't say it blew me away but it the food was enjoyable. Service seemed a bit slow but they were accommodating to our large group including young children. We'll go back.

We stopped in July 14th for our daughter's 21st birthday dinner, as she asked for an Italian menu with many options. What a great choice it turned out to be to try Mangia Mangia! Between the four of us we had the spaghetti, mushroom ravioli, pork chop (by far one of the best flavored chops my husband has ever had)... More

We stopped in for a late evening snack. We had a variety of appetizers and flat bread. Good food, what you expect from an Italian restaurant.

Overall experience was just very uninspired. Our party of 3 ( 2 adults, 1 child) were seated very close to another 4 top of older adults. They were very loud and their conversation was distracting and at times unappetizing. The restaurant was not close to being full on a Wednesday early evening so I'm not sure why we needed to...

This dining experience was a mess. We were told when we arrived that it would be a 15 minute wait and 35 minutes later we approached the hostess stand and they had "forgotten" us. After being seated we waited 10 minutes before anyone approached us and we quickly ordered drinks and food. Meanwhile we watched a large table next to... More

They have great wine specials on Wednesday's. The food here is authentic and delicious. You can have a quite dinner for two or sit in the bar and enjoy a full menu.

The first few times we came here the food and service were amazing. Unfortunately, the last time we chose this place, the service was not good. We waited about 45 minutes for anyone to take our order. I'm confident they will improve their service in the future and we will most likely return.

Dined prior to a program at Farmers' Ally Theater. Meal was tasty, hot, served in timely manner. Drinks good. Wait staff friendly and accommodating. Lasagna excellent and plentiful portion. Prices reasonable. Worth a repeat.

Description
Mangia Mangia brings you a tradition in Italian food that's traveled the world and spanned several generations. We offer recipes born out of old-world traditions and prepared with expert care, from Nonna Rosa's spaghetti sauce that's been in the family since 1936 and served to diners in West Michigan ever since, to new culinary creations presented with authentic style. Our restaurant's name comes from what any Italian grandmother would tell her family and guests at the dinner table. "Mangia, Mangia." Eat, eat! And enjoy.
