    Good legit thin-crust pizzas, nice salads. This is a valuable spot in a neighbourhood without too many options. It's probably busier for lunch than dinner. It's a bit tucked-away on a side street, but the wood patio is a good identifier. Was very quiet on Sunday evening of the Labour Day long weekend.

    Three of us reserved for Saturday dinner at 5:00. A good table at the back had been selected for us. Service was attentive, not intrusive. Server knew the menu and wine list well. Salads were generous, beautifully fresh, and perfectly, lightly dressed. Thin-crust Capri pizza, Comunista pizza, and pizza-of-the day were all excellent. For desserts, we chose from the list of tiny ice cream treats -- they look like chocolates out of a box but are in fact chocolate shells filled with gelato. A great idea for a light sweet at the end of the meal, and only $1.50 each. Music was in the background where it belongs, although we did notice as we left that the volume had started to creep up. A very good experience, and we will definitely return.

    The pizza was fantastic! Perfectly cooked with amazing toppings. The only minor setback to the evening was the height of the chairs as I felt like I was reaching up to the table, however in terms of the meal I have no complaints. Definitely will head back there for another

    This place was hiding at the back of a building. It was hard to find even if we knew the address and we are living in the neighbourhood. They have a great variety of pizzas to choose from. The crust is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The fresh pasta was really good as well.

    We've been coming here for the past 4 years since moving to the neighbourhood. Food and service have always been great but the last couple of times, the food has only been passable. We both ordered pasta dishes the last couple of times so perhaps we'll be sticking with their pizzas from now on (which are still great).

    Dined on 6/13/2014
    Suggest you start with the Antipasto Misto or the Insalata di Polipo - both excellent. Wine is reasonably priced so no need to order by the glass. However, I did not expect a soupy pasta carbonara. Not terrible mind you but not what I ordered. Perhaps the Chef needs to take a bit more care in the preparation and serving of the food and less time going for a smoke break and discussing Italy's chances of winning the World cup.

    I always enjoy my lunches at Mangia & Bevi. The food is terrific and the service attentive. It's sometimes a little busy -- which is a good thing -- so getting there early for lunch, or making a reservation is a good idea. I go often, frequently take clients, and am never disappointed.

    My partner and I took first timers and it was a complete success! Again, I suggest the pizza is the best in the city. The pasta special was loaded with seafood and was scrumptious and my salad with peaches and pears was amazing. Fresh. Tasty. We have introduced at least 6 peeps to the resto this year and they all continue to frequent! Thanks for a great evening!

    I never want to say goodbye to this restaurant. The food is incredible, the atmosphere is relaxed but with a "chic diner" feel. Rustic wood choices in the decor makes it feel "homey" We were there to surprise a friend for their birthday, and the restaurant remembered the special requests for the surprise I had written int he special notes section and helped keep up the rouse. They really cared to make the experience a great one. Amongst my top 5 favourite restaurants in Toronto.

    There are few places that truly invest their focus on delivering authentic and quality food with each and every dish they serve. Don't get me wrong, aesthetic and service haven't been left by the wayside by any means, but after your first bite there is no mistaking that their passion and their pride is their food. And that's why I keep finding excuses to go back.

    The pasta is very good, and special effort had been made to buy in gluten-free pasta for one of us. Good home-made soup (cabbage and bean). I had wild-mushroom stuffed ravioli, which was very good. A bit noisy with little children towards 7.30pm, but very friendly.

    We had a good dinner here but a bit disappointed. I had emailed ahead and asked if there were gluten free options for one of the people in our group: I was told "yes,' but in fact they don't. The food was good but more casual than we expected - salads were a highlight for sure. Felt more like a good lunch place

    After reading reviews on Yelp I chose this restaurant for my birthday dinner. The food was amazing! The pizza and pasta were all delicious. Since we were a big group I got to try several of the dishes and everything was excellent. The service was impecable as well. The server recommended several popular dishes and the kitchen was able to accommodate vegetarian requests.

    The food really was great. No complaint there, the smell of the place matched the food too. But they lost my reservation on Valentines day... They called to confirm earlier that day and when I got there to feel all cool by saying I have a reservation at 730 for two and then being seated, they said there was nothing. Only had to wait 15 min before being seated but I was not impressed. Oh and no one apologized or they didn't give us anything to say they were sorry.

    Food is good but you need to go on a day when you have lots of time for lunch. Service is very slow. I've been here about six times because it's close to my office. I stopped going for a while, but went again this week for a colleagues bday and it was painfully slow. Pizza and salads are really yummy.

    I know this place for over 10 years now, and I always were happy to introduce it to people as a true authentic pizza place. But last week experience tarnish all that. I am not sure, it was a single incident of poor quality or the new norm. The buffalo mazzorala were right out of freezer, so not creamy at all and pizza dough was tough and nothing like before. I will definitely try the food one more time alone to make sure.

    Had a dinner our with my boyfriend on a Sunday night. Restaurant did not have the wine or the salad we chose off the menu but were good at giving up alternatives. Restaurant was fairly busy for a Sunday night especially with not much around it. Lots of families with kids. Pretty good food for the prices. Has a good neighbourhood, local feel. Probably a place I would bring my family, not so much a special occasion.

    Post holiday and ice storm aftermath left the restaurant less busy than usual but we didn't mind this at all. We got to chat with our waitress in a more relaxed manner and received amazing service. We had the entire restaurant to ourselves and felt very much like VIP! We shared the beets salad and the mushroom salad, then I had the amatriciana pasta while my friend had the shrimp pasta in rose vodka sauce. Enjoyed this all while sipping on some red wine. Always a memorable dining experience at this hidden neighbourhood spot. Molto bene!

    Been going here for years and love the menu and wine list. Generally always a good meal, but this visit it wasn't. Even with a reservation from Opentable for 7:30, we were immediately greeted by a waitress that told us there was an 8:30 booking and if we weren't finished our meal, they'd move us to the bar. NEVER BEFORE HAVE I BEEN TOLD THAT I WOULD BE MOVED FROM THE MIDDLE OF MY MEAL TO ACCOMODATE SOMEONE ELSE! Not the way to treat a paying client, nevermind a neighborhood regular. Hope this was a one-off experience.
