As always, Mangia E Bevi always
As always, Mangia E Bevi always delivers!
The food was exceptional and generous.
Our waitress was super.
All in all, a most enjoyable experience - again.
The best compliment I can give to a restaurant is that we will return soon.

Great food at a reasonable price
The food was excellent as was the service, all for a very reasonable price. My wife and I dined here with a friend and we were all extremely pleased. A great restaurant!

Great Meal, weak dessert.
6 of us from 31 to 89 in age enjoyed Mother's day meal at Mangia E Bevi. The appetizers, soups and salads were great, flavourful and nicely presented.
Service was just right, enough attention but no hovering.
The only disappointment was Tiramisu my wife and I shared. It lacked in both appearance and taste, seemed like something bought at a supermarket.

Need to go more often...
Went for anniversary dinner with family and had a great meal. Very impressed with the food taste, quality and portions. Everyone ordered something different and none were disappointed. Highly recommended.

Mangia E Bevi has it all!
The food was wonderful! My guest and I each had a salad and then the Scallopine Marsala. Everything was perfect. We ordered desserts and my guests arrived with a lighted candle (I had requested beforehand that, if they could, would they be able to do something a little special as it was her birthday.). They even served some sparkling white wine with the dessert! My guest and I had a splendid, leisurely, and most pleasant 2 hour lunch. Service was prompt and inconspicuous.
My guest was most impressed as this was her first dining experience at Mangia E Bevi.
Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.

As always I was not disappointed. My friend and I will make many return visits. Thank you. It was the first time parking was a problem... the underground parking lot was full, but even worse cars were blocking the exit. We circled the block a few times and found one right outside your front door !! In consequence we were a few minutes late.

Always a Pleasure
The menu is truly superb. Great variety - only problem - deciding on what to enjoy. We had the Grilled Calamari, such a nice change from the common deep fried version (which they do serve as well).
Halibut was cooked to perfection, juicy and fresh with a delicious potato crust.
Tiramisu - always my fave. Was a wonderful Date Night.

I took my parents there for
I took my parents there for my mom's birthday - they're fairly sophisticated diners and were greatly impressed.

Mangi e Bevi never fails to make any dinner out a special one! Food is exceptional, service is friendly and professional, and the ambience from the outside patio to the varied indoor seating choices is always welcoming :D We're so happy to have such a gem in our neighbourhood!

Our requested quiet table was perfect, our server knowledgeable about wine selection and gracious without being cloying. The carpaccio was as usual exquisitely prepared and presented and the pasta and lemon tart for dessert were very good. The caesar salad would have been better with less dressing and a lighter crisper touch. Overall our dining experience was lovely and we will eat at Mangia e Bevi again, certain of repeating a fine evening out.

We found the restaurant disappointing.... the ambience was great but the food was not up to par with the price. Both my husband and I had disappointing entrees. Not sure our friends enjoyed it as they didn't say much.

We love this place!
It's one of our absolute favorites. We love the pride in ownership, patio in summer, and consistently fantastic food.

Italian gem (Mangia E Bevi)
Italian gem (Mangia E Bevi) next to a French gem (La Regalade), next to a Japanese gem (Zen)..........all in the same block and each with wonderful dining and atmosphere. Hard to beat.

We brought in our friends from New York and they loved it. Thanks for allowing us to be impressive.

Excellent Meal, Reasonable Price
Decided to try this West Vancouver neighborhood spot (on a Saturday evening with little advanced notice), as it was developing a good reputation. We were not disappointed, The appetizer (Calamari) was delightful, mains (lamb and beef) were excellent with generous portions and nice wines. Prices were very reasonable for this level of quality. Solid recommendation and it now on our "going out" list.

Thoroughly enjoyed our repeat visit. Excellent rating for menu, wine list, service and overall experience. Recommended heartily.

Fabulous dining in Dunderave
Fabulous food, great service and atmosphere and close to home.

The food was fabulous! My husband had the ceasar salad to start and the cornish hen, both he said were great! I had the rack of lamb, which was to die for! The portions are large and absolutely delicious. The atmosphere is very comfortable and not noisy. We sat inside (mid Sept), as we thought it might be too cold later on, but when we left, we saw how cosey and lovely it was outside. The music was lovely outside as well.

As always, fabulous!
Food was exceptional, ambience vibrant, and although the service was not quite the usual personable level (I think the waitress new), we had a wonderful time :)

A Little Gem
A wonderful little restaurant in West Vancouver with a very nice ambiance, great food and fine service. The wine list was interesting with a good selection and range of pricing to satisfy most anyone. We had a bottle of J Lohr Seven Oaks Cab which met our needs nicely for just $46. My wife and I shared the spaghetti Mangia (you have to ask for it as it's not on the menu) as an appetizer (spicy and delicious). For our mains my wife had the cornish game hen which was cooked to perfection and I had the pistachio crusted alaska black cod (superb). For dessert we shared a pumpkin cheesecake which was light and creamy and a great ending. The service was very responsive and friendly. A good restaurant to add to your must do list.

We had a wonderful meal here. There were three of us and everything we ordered was excellent. The appetizer of a fresh fig tart was especially good, but big enough for two to share. We will be back!

I enjoyed very much this place. has authentic inspired Italian cuisine.
Great menu and service.

Overlooked for Lunch
Enjoyed another superb lunch the other day in a restaurant that was scandalously half-empty. Extraordinary caesar salad (I think they must put cocaine in the dressing), then a chicken+cream sauce+mushrooms that was far from routine matched with (as requested) a fettuccine alfredo that was one of the best versions of that classic I've ever had. Wine suggestion was dead-on: perfect minerality to cut gently through all that sauce. Would have had dessert, too, if I hadn't had the second glass of that wine!
The North Shore seems not to value high-quality restaurants. C'mon, folks: I like earls & Cactus Club, too, but for a civilized meal (without servers looking like call girls) in a blissfully quiet place, get over here.
