Mangia E Bevi Ratings and Reviews
Invited our East Vancouver friends who had never been here and they loved it. Excellent service and timely delivery of our food and drinks with everything as ordered.
Best Italian in West vancouver and one of the two best on the North Shore. Extensive wine list if you are a connoisseur of wine.
This is one of the best Italian restaurants in the Vancouver area, and certainly the top in West Vancouver. The staff is friendly, and the service is excellent. The menu has something for everybody ranging from pasta, to meat, fish, and poultry. Special requests are welcome if you want something which is not on the menu. It's an excellent value for money restaurant. The outdoor patio is a great place to sit, people watch, and have space for conversation. The inside is cozy. All in all, we've never had a mediocre or so so meal at this place.
We have enjoyed numerous occasions eating at this restaurant.
There was one problem this time however... I had requested flowers when I made the reservation, as I had done in the past. When we arrived at this restaurant last Valentine's Day evening, they already had an arrangement of flowers on our table upon our arrival. This time there were no flowers and I was told that I should have been more clear, and that the restaurant doesn't supply flowers. I didn't feel good hearing this, especially since I had asked exactly the same way when making my reservation before, and my request was honoured. I have no problem paying for the flowers and I don't feel it is an unusual request.
Other than that, we really do enjoy coming to Mangia E Bevi
Dined at Mangia many times. Had a new old lady waitress who claimed to know more about the menu than the chef. Also claimed to know how to mix drinks. She did not. Forgot an appetizer and gave no apology. The person had to eat the appetizer after everyone else had finished theirs.Once appetizers were finished it took 15 minutes before the plates were cleared. When entrees finally arrived, the pasta dish was so dry it was almost not edible. The special/feature entree was over cooked and salty.
Overall a horrible evening, one so bad, may not go back,
Wow, what a difference a year makes. We were at Mongia E Bevi last year and had great food and great service. This year - no great food and no great service. We were surprised when we came in at 6:30 that we were the only people inside (there were a couple of tables on the patio out front). Last year there were many, many people.
Once seated we waited for EVERYTHING! We waited for water. We waited for cocktails. When they were served we waited longer for the bottle of wine. We waited and waited and waited (at least 30 minutes) for our starter (which was the best thing we had). Then we waited another almost 30 minutes for our main course (which was actually only a second starter!).
The waitress stated that the Executive chef was out due to an injury. The owner was out at another event. So, it would have been nice to be informed of this BEFORE we ordered.
We were VERY disappointed to say the least. Won't be back anytime soon.
Access challenging for a disabled person driving if there is no street parking left. My friend is paraplegic on crutches and metal braces...never uses a wheelchair. Parking is in the back and below street level. He climbed stairs to get to street level...no easy feat...perhaps even more difficult on the way down. He is very independent and chooses to manage on his own rather than ask for help. Our server was very attentive. Gave good advice on the antipasti to share 2 orders among the 3 of us. We had to leave a little sooner than we would've liked because the air conditioning was uncomfortable. Difficult to earn "outstanding" as my wife is an excellent cook and passionate about food. We've been to Italy numerous times including Umberto Menghi's cooking school in Tuscany in 2008. We like simple, great ingredients and value.
great food! fabulous server! we had 8 in our party ranging from 20 to 87 and all were satisfied. The food was delightful, wine and drinks great and our waiter was very friendly, attentive and full of suggestions for choices to try. i would recommend this restaurant!
We dined with out of town friends. Two had fish, one had veal and one had their daily feature pasta. Various salads were had by all. We were all happy with our mains an especially impressed by the salads. Wine list was extensive but reasonable. Service was better than that provided by similar restaurants. Parking on the street was convenient right in front of the restaurant on a Tuesday evening.
Restaurant personnel were very accommodating - assigned us a table but when a better table became available, they offered to move us. Beet Salad was delicious and the salmon was moist and tasty. My husband rated the veal short ribs as excellent...all in all, it was an excellent experience and we would definitely return .
We were seated right on time even thought the restaurant was busy. Table was in a great location. Conversation was easy with noise level quite acceptable considering how busy the place was. our server was very attentive and took our orders right away. Food arrived inn order with allowed to finish each course. Food was excellent and well presented. We will certainly make a return visit.
