A word from Mangiamo Pronto
Mangiamo Pronto opened in the Fall of 2009 and is the big sister of the original Santa Fe store. Located in the heart of LoDo, just 1 block off the 16th Street Mall, 1 block from Union Station, and 3 blocks from Coors Field, makes us an ideal destination for in- and out-of-towners. Enjoy breakfast and lunch Italian style throughout the day along with espresso drinks and gelato. At night, Mangiamo Pronto transitions to a full-service dining experience which includes antipasti, bruschette, small plates and house made pasta. Dining al fresco is available on our sidewalk patio. We also have a full service bar focusing on Italian wines and liquors.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Don't be in a hurry as the food is cooked to order. Worth the wait."

  • "This restaurant is conveniently located in Lodo, just a couple of blocks from Union station. The menu offers a good variety of choices, well prepared and with a flair...example: eggplant parmesan...but made with goat cheese. Service was very good. "

  • "We had a wonderful bithday ceebration. The food was great. We especially loved the Caprese salad and the Pollo pasta. This has become my favorite Italian restaurant."

  • "This restaurant was solid. They did not do anything either execellently or poorly. I was the only diner, but I had to call for service a couple times. My pizza was good, but I have had much better. It was decently priced. The ambience was a little bland. In the middle of the NHL and NBA playoffs, I walked in on Jeopardy. Overall, a good place with some solid food and service. "

  • "Mangiamo Pronto is becoming one of our go to spots when we eat before hockey games. Great food, really friendly people what more could you ask for."

  • "Mangiamo is suitable for an average quality dinner at a reasonable price; nothing special about this restaurant."

  • "We were looking for a good Italian joint close to the Pepsi Center and it was 1000 OT points so we'd thought we'd try it. It's 1000 points for a reason. We came in and said we had a reservation and clearly we were the only ones because they didn't take our name. The service was just okay. Even though the place was less than half full, our food took about 15 minutes longer than I'd expect. The Caesar salad was decent, but they didn't have any anchovies (sad for an Italian restaurant). The appetizer of fried calamari came after my salad and was serviceable but nothing to write home about. We both had the spaghetti carbonara which came with regular bacon and pancetta that wasn't crisped very well. Just an okay overall - wouldn't go back."

  • "I met a friend at Mangiamo Pronto for a nice dinner. It was very quiet and we had a great time chatting. The food was delicious and the service was good."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "There wasn't much of a need for a reservation on this particular Friday night. I was a bit concerned at first as the restaurant was mostly empty when we arrived at 6pm [on a Friday night]. The staff was really friendly and we felt very comfortable. We asked for a few minor changes to their menu and they delivered in fine fashion. The food was very, very good and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Moderately priced with a respectable wine list."

  • "Very cool little place. I can see how it would have more of a Deli atmosphere during the day but they do a good job of creating a more formal dining experience for dinner. Good food, good service. Wait time was a little long but we got in right behind a big party so it was understandable."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "My family and I really enjoyed eating here before Mamma Mia! The Paella Italiano was fantastic. The vibe was jovial and positive as the after work crowd lent a great sound bed to this downtown corner joint. Would recommend for a great meal before a ball game or show!"

  • "One ordinarily does not find excellent food and reasonable prices at the same restaurant but at Mangiamo we were pleasantly surprised. We tried the the fetticcini alfredo and pulled pork sandwich and both were delicious. Wait staff was wonderful. We will visit again and highly recommend Mangiamo."

  • "When we walked in there was no one to great us and really just seat yourself even though Made a reservation. The happy hour cheese and meats are awesome and the food was pretty damn good. We split a pizza and the honey glazed salmon which was smoked also. Worth a try for sure. Though the Restaurant itself could use a little help with greeting people and also making the place feel like a place you go for coffee and pastries."

  • "This deli-restaurant does it right with fresh ingredients prepared to please. We have dined here twice and tired new items to explore the menu. Home-made pasta was a treat - wonderful presentations, all delicious so far. We will go back."

  • "Mangiamo Pronto received good reviews from most prior patrons, but I'm not sure why. They did have a great happy hour price on a very nice red wine, and the server was very pleasant and helpful, but the food was uniformly mediocre. We all ordered "house-made" pasta, but it tasted like what you would find in a grocer's freezer. Two of us ordered "goat cheese" ravioli, but they tasted like they were filled with bland, unseasoned ricotta.. The tomato sauce was similarly bland and under-seasoned, with no discernible herbs, garlic, or tomato pulp. The pesto, in a small decorative spot in the middle, was the high point of the dish. The other pasta dish, which had a bolognese sauce, was similarly underwhelming. A disappointing dinner."

  • "this is the second time we've eaten at Mangiamo Pronto and once again the food is wonderful. We will be back."

  • "When we arrived the place was empty and that always makes one question an eatery. We were wowed the special as well as the salmon and risotto were great with huge portions we couldn't even finish. We would come back and may try happy hour."

  • "A great little restaurant near Coors Field and Union Station. The food was incredible, and the service was wonderful. This is truly a gem in the heart of LoDo."

  • "I absolutely love finding new places on Open Table and this one will become one of our favorites. From the first welcome to the meal this was a great experience. Can't wait for another excuse to be in LoDo for the evening."

  • "Some of the best Italian. Small menu but what they have is great."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "The food was good, although I did take a chance on a dish and found myself disappointed (my fault). Everyone in the party had a pasta dish and all the pasta was great. Services was friendly and attentive. The biggest issue for me was it didn't feel like a nice dinner out (but the bill was pretty close) - the ambience was more casual, like a converted deli, probably a hybrid in this case since they do sell cheese and curred meats by the pound. Perhaps I looked past too much on the Open Table Photos. The gellato was fantastic - so I'd consider this a great lunch or dessert stop. It would be good for dinner too if your looking for a casual atmosphere."

  • "We keep coming back. Hard to decide our favorites. Had the Pollo with pasta. Fantastic. Great place to go before a show."

  • "We had dinner at Mangiamo Pronto on a Friday evening, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food was good, the ambience is pleasant, the service was good. Best of all, the whole thing cost less than $30 per head. We did arrive during happy hour, which is worth making an effort to do: for $6.50 one gets a good-sized glass of wine and a plate with 3 bruschetta; both were very good. The main course was also quite tasty, and very reasonably priced. All in all, a great experience. We will certainly return!"

  • "Freshly prepared Italian cuisine, assorted selection of cheese and salumi"
    Dined on 9/28/2013
  • "The restaurant was less than half full, but the kitchen was still very slow. The stuffed figs were dry and the entrees were smothered in sauce and cheese. The server seemed inexperienced, but was very attentive. The only ambiance was a Vespa parking in the dining room. Otherwise sterile. Also, it took them days to notify Open Table that we were there."
    Dined on 9/28/2013
  • "First time in the restaurant which is located in a great part of Denver. Bright and clean with a utilitarian décor that was comfortable. Service was good, pleasant and personable (only misstep was a request for bread went unfulfilled). A great "featured list" of drink specialties started us off with a "Bulleit and Ginger" and a glass of wine. Fig and Prosciutto Appetizer was excellent in quality and preparation. Main course selections were Egg Plant Parmesan and a white wine sauce, chicken, mushroom . . . both were nicely prepared and ample. We were there for a birthday . . . and the complimentary gelato (an intriguing selection - coconut, tiramisu, salted carmel, oreo cookie etc) was a great finish. At $57 before tip - a real value."

  • "Mangiamo Pronto has some of THE BEST if not the best, pasta dishes in Denver. My wife and I love Italian food and Mangiamo Pronto fills our need every time. It's a great place to eat fabulous Italian food in Denver!!"

  • "Eight of us ate here @ 5:30 on a Friday before a show at the Pepsi Center. I believe this place is more geared to the lunch crowd, but it was wonderful for dinner. The pesto bruschetta app was a little small, but the calamari was plentiful. We ordered our appetizers and dinner meals at the same time, Dinner took a little longer to get out than I would have liked, but the food was good. The Milanese chicken was fantastic. Panini had a lot of meat, which my friend wasn't totally fond of. The eggplant Parmesan was all cheese with a very thin film of eggplant around it. That was a disappointment if you like eggplant, but a highlight for my husband who loves cheese. Final words: Stay For The Gelato! The cookies and cream gelato is amazing!"

  • "Our first visit was so good, and we were hoping for the same. This visit, our second, we were not as satisfied. I did not like my entrée as much as the first time. I also felt the service was a bit too slow."
    Dined on 8/13/2013
  • "Great food in a non-typical restaurant atmosphere. You must give it a try -- the food is some of the best Italian in Denver!"

  • "We drove from the mountians enroute to our home in Colorado Springs, and decided to try Mangiano Pronto because of the reviews I found on line. This was our first visit and we were very very pleased. We were greeted by the firiendly proprietor and although they were not serving on the patio, I asked if it would be possible to eat outside. "Of course she replied" we would be happy to set up a table for you. The waitress was helpful in suggesting and very receptive to our request to split meals in our group of four. The house speicail of a flatiron steak was the best and the egg plant italian dish wss worth the 100 mile drive. The dinner concluded with a complimentary piece of tiramasu. Mangiano's is a place I will mark for a future drive."

  • "We made the reservation via OpenTable based on the reviews. We didn't realize we'd walked past it several times -- we thought it was a deli or pastry shop. Turns out it had a really nice italian menu. We were pleased with the wine and beer we had. Service was great -- we were the only ones in the restaurant. It closes a bit early (9 p.m.) and our reservation was 8:30 p.m. Would definitely eat there again."

  • "Another great meal at Mangiamo Pronto. My husband and I love going to this restaurant for a reasonable casual dinner or lunch. The food is always excellent - very fresh and the wine list is quite good. We usually share a salad and a pasta - the portions are generous. The staff is always welcoming - we like this place - alot."

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that likes a clean restaurant and friendly service. The Bruschetta choices were fantastic and the desserts were amazing."

  • "We were a party of 10 and they were able to accommodate the group with a big round table rather than a bunch of tables pushed together. The restaurant wasn't busy for a Saturday night so the service and food came out fairly quickly. I would recommend this restaurant - they have different combinations of food, which I like."

  • "Not a good night. The resstaurant lost our reservation. The seating is very crowded. The food was average at best. Way too much garlic. Way too much noise."
