“Best Italian in Hershey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2011

I've had about two-thirds of the menu over a dozen visits and can state unequivocally that this is easily the best Italian food in the Hershey area. My favorite is the veal saltimbocca, it is very authentic. Just to give a little perspective, my reference point is New York City Italian food, which is where I learned to mangia. This is restaurant to go to experiment because everything is meticulously prepared, so be adventurous and order something you've never had before!

“WHERE'S THE PASTA??”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2011

We have been to this restaurant on two occasions. Great service, the food is good except for the fact- it's an Italian restaurant, so where's the pasta? What they call a "side of pasta" is about 3 forkfuls! C'mon, if you need to cut back don't make it on your cheapest ingredient! Everyone loves pasta- give us some!

“Mangia Mangia a good place to eat eat.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2011

Mangia Mangia is a relatively new restaurant in the Hershey, Pa. It's a bit difficult to find from the road as the signage is low on a pole. But find it you must.

The decor is very nice, the greetings and service excellent. The only criticism is that the restaurant can get quite loud as there is not enough 'sound dampening' material (e.g. drapes).

One of the great advantages (as of this writing) is that it is BYOB, so that the overall bill is very reasonable. Indeed all the prices are quite good.

We've eaten there several times and have never been disappointed. The Mussels Marinara as an appetizer is terrific as is the Beet Salad. Family and friends have enjoyed all the pasta dishes and I thought the Pollo (chicken) Marsala was excellent.

Enjoy
