“Average to below average food.”

No reason to eat bad Italian food here when there are so many more authentic Italian restaurants on Bergen County. Some of the food here is ok, the salads, and some is downright awful, pasta with clam sauce.

“Good food and ambience.”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Enjoyed the meals I've had here.. Place misses that last star because of the noise level. They have put up nothing to baffle the noise.

“Pretty good for a Huge restaurant.”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

It's a pretty good place for a casual not critical lunch or dinner.
It's gigantic but to serve the masses of NJ and in a upscale shopping mall WELL. Mangiano's is a corporate restaurant, but done very well. Check it out its ok and lively at dinner time .

“Great Italian food with large portions in Riverside Square Mall.”
Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

Love the food here and the portions are large enough to share or to take home for the next day. I also like that the manager and staff are welcoming and professional. My experience is that the give back to the community by supporting local charities. The prices are far more reasonable that many other mall based restaurants of similar quality.
