Had a gift certificate from my birthday. We came for dinner early. We were served a sparklingly water with a basket of bread. I ordered gnocchi, which was wonderful, we will most definitely be back now that we just moved to Martinez!! We would have come back anyway!

The food was excellent and well worth the visit. Next time I'm in Martinez I will pay Manga Bene a visit. I'm anxious to try lunch there.

This small restaurant is a hidden gem. Arrived with reservations for a party of 8, we were seated within 3 minutes. The wait staff was prompt with drinks and the menus. Not to mention the French Bread Baskets, Olive Oil and Butter (my hips say thank you!). Restaurant was fairly busy as it was a Saturday night, and yet the... More

Mangia Bene is a great place for a wonderful meal. The food is authentic Italian and very artfully prepared. I have been going to this place for 20 years since we moved to this area. I highly recommend it!

Three of us went to lunch today. Ordered 1. Salmon Grilled...it came after a long wait and was so over cooked it was crispy, crunchy for 1/4 of an inch and then completely dried out. The mashed potatoes were cool, not warm or hot and tasteless. When I told the wait person about the preparation of the food she seemed... More

The bar may not be set very high but this is clearly the best restaurant food in Martinez. We have visited many times and have never had problems with either food or service. White tablecloths, excellent bread with dipping sauce, a pitcher of water with orange slices and Sinatra mood music playing add to the surprises awaiting in this strip... More
