    My wife and I went to Mangia E Bevi on a Friday night for dinner with my parents who were visiting from out of town. We usually go to another local spot but thought that we'd try M&B out. I'd taken the time to make a reservation but it seemed irrelevant because we were seated by the door, between the incoming traffic and the waiter station (meh). The service was good, but not spectacular, and the waitress seemed lovely, but not engaging. The ambiance seemed typical West Vancouver, not very modern but comfortable and a decent use of restaurant space. The food was the highlight of the experience. The food was cooked to perfection and as ordered, the appetisers were well displayed and the main course was both filling and delicious.

    My wife and I and our 11-year old had a wonderful evening at Mangia et Bevi. Gordon, our waiter, was very attentive anticipating our needs and ensuring that the evening went well - a credit to him! The restaurant was more than willing to cater to young children; Gordon brought this to our attention as we perused the menu casually, offering to prepare half portions of pasta. The wine list was good with a fairly broad range of prices. We settled on a 2009 Ripasso which was outstanding - wonderful on the nose with strength on the palate. The wine complemented our meals perfectly - veal scallopine and crusted halibut. The menu is fairly complete. We will definitely return to sample other dishes and wines

    We've been going to this place for years and know the staff well. Foods always terrific but we tried things we never tried before. This was the first time we used on line booking, which was very convenient,as they had our table ready and were waiting for us. I usually order a pasta dish but tasted the veal marsala, which is a favorite of mine and it was superb. As we were a group of five we shared a few antipasti plates. My wife had the ravioli which was excellent and our kids had entrees of black cod, duck confit and a beef striploin. (a meat and potatoes man from the American midwest). To my chagrin, no one would join me in desert, but we had a ton of Italian gelato at home. We sat indoors, nut the out door patio was packed..

    Food was as always well presented and tasty. All 4 plates (we where with another couple) arrived at the same time which is important to me. The plates were heated and the food hot - very important. Good menu choices and the desserts were outstanding too. Our favorite restaurant in West Vancouver.

We were absolutely delighted at the quality of food, service and ambience. We discovered 3 tables of friends/acquaintances at the restaurant at the same time as our party! We will endorse to all we are able to.

    restaurant was busy but still able to cope and service was excellent. We sat outside and the weather was warm and the heaters added just enough heat as the sun went down. Food was nicely presented good portion sizes and very tasty. Will definately make this a regular spot for dinner. Unlike some restaurants , we did not feel rushed and the food was delivered with a nice pacing to make for a romantic dinner.

    Hello folks: a bit disappointed this time; 3 of our party had the spot prawn pasta special and the spot prawns were overcooked and mushy. Considering this was a special, we were all very surprised. The other members of our party were satisfied (2 steaks and 1 pasta dish.) All salads were wonderful. Provided a baby chair for our grandson and treated him extremely well. Server was pleasant and attentive. The only disappointment was the spotted prawns.

    I have a number of friends who love this place and I keep wanting to love it -- but I find the food is only fair to good. I've been maybe 5 or 6 times and the service is always delightful, as is the ambience. But the food often disappoints. The Caesar Salad was good but my Pasta with Prawns was so-so. My friend didn't finish her Lamb and said that her Green Salad had too much lemon in the dressing. To be fair it was a special request to substitute lemon for their standard vinegar, but the balance was way off and I would have expected them to be able to handle this. I would say this experience is fairly typical for me.

    Incredibly accommodating for large groups. They arranged a side room that was separate but not detached from the ambience of the restaurant. The service was seamless from wine pouring to menu questions. The food was beautifully plated and cooked perfectly with interesting menu options. The pacing of food delivery was perfect and the assistance with coats etc (it was a party of 17!!) was flawless. Definetely return visits !! Doug the manager went beyond to find space for a few extra people at the last minute. Wonderful experience!! Thank-you

    We've enjoyed Mangia e Bevi for many years, & have found it flawless with wonderful food, friendly professional service, & until recently, a diverse mix of relaxing & enjoyable dinner music. Sadly, our last 3 visits over a 3 week period have been tarnished by a background of lifeless, repetitious elevator piano music in the key of C :( If the restaurant is busy, it's camouflaged by the chatter of happy patrons. However, we tend to dine later, so well before the end of our meal, the plinking has begun to irritate rather than relax. We've brought this to their attention, both in person & through OpenTable, but sadly it's not a concern to them at this time. For us though, dining out is about the WHOLE experience, & this spoils it for us.

    I needed 'the best' restaurant in west van / north van because we had another engagment over there and needed to stay on that side of the bridge - I think we found certainly a contender at Mangia E Bevi. There are a few others near that I've tried in West Van that are well loved and hyped but I think mangia e bevi was better than both others that come to mind. This is not a seafood place, lots of other good seafood restaurants to choose from. But the pasta here was incredible, the appetizer beet salad was inventive, desert was amazing, recommended wine amazing, service outstanding. i would recommend. I had the mushroom ravioli btw- wow. great.

    This is a lovely restaurant that we have been returning to many, many times. It's not just the staff that are great but the ambience is perfect and the noise level is low. We had the 3 course cancer fundraiser meal. A lovely small green salad with fresh flavourful tomatoes, excellent veal scallopini followed by a delicious bread pudding for dessert. There is a very good wine selection list and we chose our favourite Villa Antinori. A lovely evening with a fabulous meal! And for a good cause for the month of January!
