    Thank you Chef Guisseppe for a wonderful evening at your resturant. The food was awesome, reminiscent of our honeymoon this past March in Rome. Sarah was so nice and matilda was so sweet. We are returning with my parents and a couple of friends to Mangia. Daniel, thank you for your excellent service.

    The BEST lasagna and THE BEST cannoli I have ever had....ever! I took my husband for his birthday, and was rewarded with lovely extras including a candle on the cannoli presentation! The owners and wait staff are all from Italy and it is so charming to hear the Italian authentic accent and eat homemade REAL authentic Italian food. I HIGHLY recommend this place!

    We absolutely disagree with the other reviewers. There were only 2 other tables occupied, but it took over 1/2 hour to get our appetizers , which required no cooking. Then, our main courses came much too fast. Pizza with porcinis & truffle had lots of mushrooms, but cheap ones - NOT porcini. Truffle oil was barely recognizable. Wild boar ragu was tasty, but only 2 or 3 tiny pieces of boar - mostly sauce. Wine list overpriced. A couple of tiny pieces of bread provided, with tasteless olive oil. One of our worst Sarasota meals.

    This was a place for real good Italian but there was only one server using new technology ordering with tablet. We had a good time talking to each other and enjoying the food. I would recommend additional servers but understand it is hard to predict how busy the night will be.

    The appetizer muscles no taste- the bread was stale -the main course of fish should have stayed in the ocean.They informed me that my Open Table Credit Card to pay with was unacceptable. I could ONLY pay with another type of personal credit card.They took my reservation through Open Table -then an Open Table Card should be accepted. They told me, they were going to call the police, if I didn't use my personal American Express Card.It concluded with me giving them the $100.00 Open Table Card for a $65.00 meal. I was given no change or credit in return. This restaurant does not honor Open Table. If you want arrogant ownership and wait staff coupled with tasteless food and a long wait for your meal-then this is your restaurant foodies !
