Food was delicious, Service Wonderful.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectionI know exactly what I was looking for in a restaurant that has AMAZING food service and truly a romantic setting!!! This was beyond perfection!!! I will make sure to share this amazing experience with EVERYONE I know that is looking for perfection "Mangiamo"5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMLocation Great, Food VariableThe setting is nice, and the remodeling efforts have cleaned up the exterior look. We ended up in one of the back, cellar rooms, that got a bit stuffy as the evening progressed. The menu was as nice as always, and we and the three friends that joined us sampled a broad range of the appetizers, salads, and entrees. The mussells and poke were great, the burratta pear salad was kind of uneven... a clump of pears on one side, and a big chunk of barratta on top of the greens. Build your own salad, I guess? The lamb shank was a bit chewey and fatty, the chicken marsala was very good, as was the penne Bolognese and fettucine Alfredo. So... choose carefully, I guess, and if you don't like stuffy, ask for a table in the main dining room. Great wine5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated a friend's birthdayWe celebrated a friend's birthday the other night and the food and service were execellent! Definitely a good find.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAs several other reviews haveAs several other reviews have said, we found the food to be excellent and the service to be spot on! Having read that the restaurant could be noisy, we asked for a table that would likely be quiet, and we were immediately accommodated by being seated just off the main room and by the wine closet. It was perfect! Even though this is a 30 minute drive from our home, I'm sure we will come back often.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were there for Monday-lobsterWe were there for Monday-lobster night! Good food and friendly service.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGem in Manhattan BeachThis was our third visit to Mangiamo's. We have been impressed each time. We
sat in the back of the restaurant, known as the wine cellar. It's a cozy area with just a few tables. Very romantic spot for a date night or a few couples. Service is always impeccable. Food is delicious. I can't say a negative word about anything. We will definitely be back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you want to hold a conversation,If you want to hold a conversation, as for "The Celler" area which is in back of the restaurant. Very nice private alcoves are in the back. If you want "action", stay in front. Great food, superior service, attentive but not overbearing.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood consistent food.
