The smell of chocolate cake
The smell of chocolate cake reminded me to pace myself at dinner. Our food was amazing, and our waiter was outstanding.

A must when ever you can!
If you have the chance to enjoy the delight that is Mangia Mangia, then it would be a sin not to do so! The food is to die for and so is the staff.

Works for Romantic Birthday Dinner
I took my wife here for her 45th and it was quite nice. The wait staff was extremely attentive, courteous, very friendly and knowledgeable about the food. My wife is a vegetarian who loves Italian and she found some great options here. I'm a meat eater, and while I went with pasta, there were all kinds of great choices for me too. Her de Mare dish was fresh & delicious, made with sustainable fish. My tortelloni in light cream sauce was great. We skipped dessert (birthday cake at home) but those options looked really good as well. Definitely coming back.

Great neighborhood find !
Good food and great service ! The chocolate souffle is to die for .

We will go back!
I had the Vegetable and Pasta soup (Minestrone-like) and Linguini de Mare, both of which were excellent! We reserved a table for 4 at 7 PM and the table was waiting for us when we arrived despite the restaurant being full otherwise, so very good service.

Mangia Mangia as great as always.
We've been going to Mangia Mangia for several years and have never been disappointed. For a truly excellent Italian cuisine experience, try Mangia Mangia.

What a hidden gem!
I have been eating at and sending friends to Mangia Mangia for years, as it's within walking distance of home. But that is a side benefit. The true value of the restaurant is its fresh food so beautifully presented. It's a family-run eatery whose owners greet their return customers by name and never drop the quality of their selections and cooking. It's easy to get in and out for an 8 o'clock show nearby, and a gourmet meal won't cost you an arm and a leg. Albany residents are very lucky!

Mangia Mangia a neighborhood gem
We have eaten at this restaurant for several years and have always enjoyed the food and ambience. The style is Italian and the wine list is good. It can get noisy and busy on weekends.

A neighborhood find
My husband and I had a wonderful meal at Mangia Mangia...everything a dinner out should be. The food was wonderful, with many unusual selections to choose from. The wine list was excellent. The service had just the right touch.

This is now our default restaurant---we know we always get a delicious and well prepared meal at Mangia, Mangia. A gem in an unremarkable neighborhood.

Mangia Mangia A+ !
Mangia Mangia has the best Italian food in the Bay Area. The neighborhood is used cars and liqueur stores but once inside Mangia Mangia it is an amazing dining experience in taste, presentation, ambience and service!

Pretty darn good
The waiter was fun. The Mangia Mangia appetizer salad rocks. I'd really call the manicotti (stuffed with the roast chicken and stuff) canneloni but whatever, it was delicious. The touted chocolate souffle though was not really a souffle. Way too much runny chocolate sauce all through it. Don't bother with it. Nice wines by the glass too. All in all ... va bene.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love this neighborhood gem...spaghetti is very good, my tortoloni was really outstanding as was the salad with gorgonzola and pears. They also have a good wine list...try the Nero d'Avola, but the house wine is good too. Service is so friendly, you can't miss here.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love this place!
Mangia, Mangia has become our default restaurant when we want to be sure to have a well prepared and satisfying meal in a calm and aesthetic environment. Even though it is located on San Pablo in an uninspiring neighborhood, it is a gem. The service has always been gracious and helpful.

I ordered the tortelloni and my companion ordered the chicken farfalle pasta, neither was disappointed. The bread was delicious, the pasta dishes were tasty and filling. I asked for and received additional bread to mop up the delicious sauce. The waiter came mid-way through the meal to suggest the molten chocolate cake as it takes 20 minutes to prepare. We ordered and it was divine! This is a wonderful local spot that I enjoy when I am in the area. Great staff, great food, cute décor; a fun night out.

Mangia Mangia is a regular of mine and is an absolute gem. The welcome and the ambience are always warm, the food delicious, and the service is great. What more could anyone ask? You must try the chocolate souffle! It was the only time in the whole evening when my party was silent...mmmmm! Try it out!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a great experience there. Service was attentive but not annoying and food was great.

Always a lovely, delicious evening with beautiful choices and excellent service.

I had put out that I wanted real Italian food. I was all set to go to Walnut Creek but with the bridge closed and many
events taking place, I wanted the least amount of stress and no traffic. This place is a dream. The food was so very authentic
and down right delicious. I loved our waiter as he presented himself and the establishment with dignity. I would definitely eat here again. It is now my only true Italian place to go to. It was recommended by a very dear friend. I am telling everyone I know.
You wi love this place!!!! Moon Sun :D

Little Italian gem
Our first time here. Food was very good, service great. Loved the fruit/ beet salad and we both had two different types of fish which was cooked nicely. The only thing that bothered me that could be remedied quickly is that we really felt that if they served their wine in a much bigger wine glass you would feel more like you were getting more what you paid for. That it would take the dining experience up a notch.

We really enjoyed our dinner. It was late - 8:15 and we were seated immediately. The soup of the day must have been really good because it was gone by the time we got there're but the fresh tomato/mushroom was even better. The arugula and goat cheese salad was fresh. Best of all was the veal dish we had as well as the roast lamb. Not a huge fan of lamb, but this was fantastic. We finished up with a flan that was very nice and just the right size to split. Service was very good. Glad we took a chance on it!

Wonderful neighborhood restaurant!
I've been going to Mangia Mangia for years and it never disappoints. I love that it is family owned and operated. It's nice seeing familiar and friendly faces at the door and cooking up something delicious in the open kitchen.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good quick and attentive service while not being overbearing. Food was excellent, and served very hot, so it came quickly, which I like very much.
We will be back!

A little gem
We very staying nearby Mangia and found it on Open Table - so glad we did because it was a very enjoyable experience. The restaurant is small but comfortable with a calm, attractive ambience. The service was prompt and pleasant. The food was delicious and comparable to any of the "hotter," higher end Italian restaurants so popular today. The family owned business with a clear commitment to quality would be welcome in any neighborhood. Will return!

We always have a great meal at Mangia Mangia and the service has always been excellent. Enjoy!

Been a fave for years
We've been going to Mangia Mangia for many years now and we've always had a great meal. Ingredients change with the seasons and availability and there is always a consistency of excellent food. We tend to go for special family occasions but it's also nice for drop-in-before-a-movie meals. Don't miss their house special antipasto and the chocolate soufflé.

Great Place for a Celebration
Loved everything we had - unusual pastas and salads. Wonderful atmosphere for a birthday celebration, although slightly noisy. Great service as well. Prices are moderate. Would certainly return even for a casual meal with friends.

Real Italian food
I come from a large Italian family where the cooking is impeccable. I do not like most Italian resturaunts, because the food does not come close to what I have at home. This resturaunt does a great job of making fresh delicious dishes, and are far beyond what most Italian restaurants have to offer!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
This place has a very warm feeling. The ingredients tasted extremely fresh and heavy. Food was solid but not amazing.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always good at Mangia Mangia
Consistently good food, service, ambience and excellent, creative daily specials.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
The classic ceasar salad was perfect and the special of braised pork chop absolutely delicious. Very attentive and professional service.
