Was in New York for 3 days visited mangia 3 times. A bargain of fresh quality food at reasonable prices. Variety of inventive salads, good desserts and best capuchins around. Love this place.

Mangia is more like a food hall than a restaurant. Endless fresh choices; salads, an over the top salad bar, made to order sandwiches, pasta, soups, baked goods. Go from station to station making your choices, pay by the pound, take out or eat in,...More

The worst restaurant ever. I came during breakfast time and the staffs wrongly took my order then blamed me for their wrongdoing. I wanted to eat sausage with the omelette, and potato. So I ordered omelette, with sausage and potato on the side. The order...More

Get real Mangia. It was just kale, chicken, parmesan cheese, and salad dressing. I hurt my knee and had a co-worker pick something up for me. How can you justify the cost of this? What is the mark up on this salad? At a nice...More

A family business opened in 1981, Mangia transformed the New York lunch scene by being one of the first to focus on fresh, artisanal ingredients and a menu of rustic and classic Italian fare. Today we continue with the same passion for food by preserving our beloved Mangia classics as well as continuing to create new seasonal recipes. Most of all, we take pride that whether you're joining us for a quick lunch or catering a large event, our food is always crafted in house and baked fresh daily.
