Food was great, and the waiter
Food was great, and the waiter was in the top 5 best waiters I have ever experienced. Everything was perfect except prices were higher than we expected. I would love to go there again soon but it will have to be a very special occasion as we are retired school teachers on a fixed income. But, we are very happy we were able to experience this wonderful restaurant. Great find.

I am so bad at writing reviews
I am so bad at writing reviews I never seem to get around to it. Tutti Maniga is my favorite restaurant in Claremont. The food is outstanding, great bartending with fun cocktails and the staff is wonderful. We usually have Alex as our waiter so he makes the experience even better. The chef does such a great job with fish and my favorite is the roast chicken. It is a definate must try in Claremont.

We took our grandson for his
We took our grandson for his 18th birthday. The food and service were excellent. It was a Friday night so packed and a little noisy, but overall, excellent. It is my favorite restaurant and have been going there for years. Highly recommended except on Tuesday wine-tasting nights unless you like the bar scene. Great for special occasions.

One of our favorites
We dined at Tutti Mangia to celebrate my birthday. Both the service and the meal were wonderful. We have dined here many times and have never been disappointed. The only drawback was the noise level that evening. We had a previous conflict the night of my birthday so we made our reservations for the next evening ..... a Tuesday. The restaurant has a wine tasting series on Tuesdays and guests are invited to stay for dinner with the incentive of a discount on the second meal and the purchase of two wine tastings. The restaurant was full when we arrived and everyone was obviously enjoying themselves. We had trouble hearing our server when she recited the evening specials. In the future, we will go on a night other than a Tuesday.

Fabulous food and friendly service. Felt pampered.

Alex is the best waiter bar non. I just whispered that I would change my mind and have a glass of wine and from across the room he did 180 degree turn around, asked my what I would like, and had it to me immediately. He gives always the most attentive service.

We've dined many times at
We've dined many times at Tutti Mangia. I chose this time to actually make a reservation, as we had four people in our party, but they usually aren't required when it's just the two of us. The food is absolutely wonderful, and the staff is very attentive and friendly. Eddie, the owner, is usually in the restaurant helping everyone out and giving special attention to each of his patrons. Overall, the restaurant is the best one in Claremont.

A group of 7 out for a lunch after consultation all day. Loved the food, great service. Real improvements on the usual Italian food themes. Highly recommended. Presentation and taste were very well done with significantly wonderful ingredients.

A very special place
Tutti Mangia has never let us down in the ten plus years of dining there.

A little off night
We arrived on time for our reservation, waiting at the bar and weren't seated until 30 min later. The bartender gave us free seconds on our drinks. Finally seated, the special, monkfish sounded wonderful, server came back to say they were out of the special. Our meals were very tasty but had missed out on something different. We will probably return, but not soon.

One of my faves
I used to live in Claremont, and whenever I return, I have to dine at Tutti Mangia. It is an incredible experience, amazing food, and not to be missed if you are in the area. We dined with 8 people recently., and had a three hour meal. Love this place!

A Nice Romantic Getaway...
I took my wife to celebrate her birthday. The atmosphere was suitably romantic, and the food was outstanding. I would recommend the salmon as well as one of the specials, a tri-tip kabab with an inviting pesto sauce. Service was excellent. Prices are a bit toward the high end, but still affordable. I will definitely come back again.

Took my husband to Tutti Mangia for his birthday dinner and had a wonderful time. The food was wonderful as were the drinks. Our server, Lisa was great. Attentive but not too much and had great suggestions for wine. We had a great time and will return again very soon.

Fine Food in Location
Very good food with very good service. Probably the best upscale restaurant in area. Italian flair. On the expensive side. Noisy but not so loud as to preclude conversation.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is an excellent restaurant in all respects EXCEPT for the noise level. Something should be done to enable diners to have a normal conversation without shouting. Add drapes, add carpets, etc. to change the acoustics.

Great gem in Claremont
This restaurant is a great gem in Claremont. It has great Italian food and the service is always great. Phil the bartender always tries to make everyone feel welcome. The owner comes around to make sure everyone is enjoying their dinner. Our waiter even changed the way our food was served to what we felt like eating at the time. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants upscale Italian Food!

Very Nice Dining Experience
Another outstanding meal at Tutti Mangia. From start to finish, our meals were excellent and service was attentive and friendly but not obtrusive. We often enjoy a special occasion dinner at Tutti Mangia where we know our experience will be a pleasant one!
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
special and comfortable
This is the neighborhood star of the Claremont area. Casual night at the bar or for a special occasion dinner, this is THE place to go. There are ever changing seasonal specials and their regular menu also never disappoints.
The sautéed artichoke with Meyers lemon dip, that I recently had, was so intense with natural lemon flavor I wanted to just eat it with a spoon.
We always feel like special guest at Tutti Mangia and we love our special waiter Alex.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
My sister lives in Lake Arrowhead and I live in Long Beach. This is the restaurant that we meet to celebrate our birthdays and so twice a year we are eating at Tutti Mangia. We love the food and the atmosphere of the area. Service is always excellent. I would happily reccommend Tutti Mangia.

A Great Night at Dinner
We had a really great night at dinner. The pork tenderloin was delicious and the spaghettini with garlic and olive oil and grilled shrimp was amazing. It was a very romantic setting with mood lighting and an excellent. The blackberry chardonnay sorbetto was to die for! Definitely an Italian restaurant not to overlook.

Good things come to those that wait
I do not mind waiting for ecellently prepared fresh delicious food and it was... I come from Italian roots and can spend hours having a meal. I do mind waiting for simple things that are or should be ready - Bread - Dishes cleared - Drinks - Wne - Water - And I did wait for all of the above. The restaurant was bustling but by no means slammed and there were pleanty of able bodied employees talking and watching me wait obviously schooled in the fine art of eye contact avoidance. I will definitely try it again as the food was well worth it and who knows my second time around could very well be the start of a long relationship.

Small yet just right for lunch or dinner. You will love it!

Food and service was amazing.. but place had an odd smell when I walked in, I thought it smelled like cats or cat food.. I don't know but everything else was great.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was the first time for my wife and I at Tutti mangia and must say it was great. The whole show was good. We were sat within a few moments after walking in. Attentiveness, ambience and service was on point. Hot food came quick and was fresh and deliscious. We smiled the whole time. Mac&cheese is off the hook. We will definitely be back again.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a beautiful evening and the waiter was very tentative to making our eveinng more special.

Great night, great food, great wine. Our server, Kathy recommended a great chardonnay to pair with our fish dishes and the soups were outstanding. Looking forward to our next visit!

This was a birthday celebration. Four family members had drinks and a fabulous dinner. Server was knowledgable and friendly. Drinks and appetizers were superb. Dinner was served in an elegant way. We all enjoyed the evening immensely, and recommend Tutti Mangia for your special occasion.

Great food Great time
It was my wife's birthday and this was the first time we went to the restaurant because we wanted someplace different. She told me about the place because she drives past it going to her hairdresser. We were amazed at how great everything was. We had 5:00 pm Friday night reservations and there were just a couple of people in the restaurant. By the time we left the place was filling up nicely indicating to us we need to get there at 5:00.
The food was heaven. I usually do not like a cream base dinner but I sure did. My wife has a shrimp/scallop linquini dinner and she raved about it. Then they brought us icre cream with fruit plus a candle on top. She was glad they did not get everybody around her to sing!
We would return.

Fabulous wait staff
This is a Claremont institution with a well-deserved good reputation. It has become a bit pricey over the years, but the food is very good. The menu is creative and the wine list extensive. The only real drawback is the noise level. It was very hard to hear our server as she described the specials. A little sound absorbtion would be great.
The best part of the meal was our server. She was accomodating and knowledgable and did everything she could to make the evening special for our special event evening.

Excellent service and quality food. My daughter, who is a very good cook says you make the best pasta meals!

Everything is amazing as always. My favorite is the Oso Buco!!! But really, you can't go wrong with anything.

I HAD HEARD MANY GOOD THINGS ABOUT THE RESTAURANT,MY HUSBAND AND I ENJOYED OUR FIRST TIME THERE.
THE FOOD WAS GREAT AND THE SERVICE STAFF WAS VERY HELPFUL.
THE RESTAURANT WAS DECORATED FOR THE HOLIDAYS AND IT WAS VERY PRETTY.
WE WILL BE RETURNING AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.....
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
The service was great. The bartender was friendly. The restaurant was decorated for the Christmas season. My wife loved the pumpkin ravioli and the lasagna was moist and delicious. We will definitely recomend it t our friends.

The food was excellent! The
The food was excellent! The service was excellent. Just watch out for the wine that you are being served. I ordered a 2009 Duckhorn - Pinot Noir and the server brought us a 2010. I sent the server to see the manager and he said it was the same price!Same thing happend the 2nd time we ordered a different wine bottle. Wine aficionados will understand that different labels and years carry a comparable price. Generally, if its great wine (Duckhorn) the older the bottle, the higher the price. I don't mind paying the listed price, but make sure you (the restaurant) have the bottle listed on the menu. If you don't have it, tell me and tell me what your price for the alternate bottle should be. Don't sell me something you don't have.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
It had been a few years since we went to TM, and when we went back the food was even better than it was before. That's saying a lot. But, the prices were equal to the quality (My wife, my daughter and I--$200). If you want a special night with special food and you're willing to splurge, go to Tutti Mangia. Great!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food is e what keeps me coming back to this place. They seem to take the time to do it right.
