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.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA Gem in Old Town ClaremontExcellent food and service. The daily lunch special entrees are always delightful.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Mothers Day BrunchWe've been here three years in a row for mothers day (I take my mom and eldest son) and we always have great service and outstanding food!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've dined many times atWe'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.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMServiceAlex 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.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWow!Fabulous food and friendly service. Felt pampered.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMI was amazed that the restaurantI was amazed that the restaurant was packed on a Tuesday night. We were seated at a table for two against the window which was nice. The noise level in the restaurant was incredibly loud to the point that I could barely understand what my wife was saying and it definitely detracted from the night. While their wine list is good, I would have liked to see a better selection of California wines.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favoritesWe 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.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took our grandson for hisWe 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.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service. LittleGreat food and service. Little pricy. But you get what you pay for.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI am so bad at writing reviewsI 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.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great, and the waiterFood 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.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!!!!!Excellent. Food was outstanding, wait staff was very helpful with great suggestions and atmosphere was peaceful making it was easy to have a conversation across the table. I recommend Tutti Mangia to everyone!!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMVery relaxing evening. A littleVery relaxing evening. A little early for our reservation but they were able to accommedate us, which was nice. The service was very attentive but not overly so. Tried the chefs special, tomato orange soup and was pleasantly suprised. They had one of our favorite wines and the Sea Bass was great. Planning on returning soon.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is lovely and theyThe food is lovely and they have a small, but nice list of wines by the glass. The servers are somewhat informed about a circulating set of special wines.
My problem with Tutti Mangia is the seating. There are lots of undesirable tables: too close to the door; seating area is too active; many tables are too close to the next table for personal conversation; tables are jammed into corners, etc. Given that the restaurant has such wonderful food offerings, it's too bad that one doesn't feel comfortable to savor and linger.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA real gemMet a colleague for lunch on a Friday. Not at all crowded, so the noise level was great for a business lunch. Service was very good, starting with the hostess and continuing with the waiter and other support staff.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AM4.5/5Great Italian Place on the Edge of Claremont's Village. Not the largest restaurant but a very pretty layout and small but beautiful bar. Often looks like not a soul is ever there because they open only for dinner at 5:00 PM and I am told for lunch on Fridays. Reservations are a must and almost always have to be done online or in advance when eating at Tutti Mangia.
The Village has several very good Italian Restaurants but Tutti Mangia is clearly the most expensive one of them all. The food is fantastic with an incredible 8 oz filet. The sides, including wonderful goat-cheese mashed potatoes, are wonderful but tiny (I like them this way).
The establishment can be a bit loud for some on certain nights when groups gather to meet there.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMMy son and I really enjoyedMy son and I really enjoyed our dinner last week. The entries were outstanding, especially the salmon dish that my son devoured in minutes. The service was great, attentive when needed, but not overbearing. The suggested wine was also superb, and desert was just the right end to our meal. We will be back.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBisteka for Valentine's day TOUGH !Beautiful. But the Bisteka for Valentine's day was very tough ! Too bad everything else was superb and they screwed up on the main dish !!!2/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
