It was just fantastic. Food was amazing. We absolutely loved it - my new favorite restaurant!
When we arrived we were directed to a table squeezed between two other tables. My wife noticed a table that had been just vacated and was more private as it was by the windows. The host was quick to say that the table could be ours as soon as it was cleared and cleaned from the previous customers. Off to a good start.
We were delivered menus promptly and our water glasses filled. I ordered some wine after consulting the waiter for a recommendation. The wine was excellent.
I have a slight gluten & dairy allergy and so I informed the waiter. He said to decide what I wanted and the kitchen would make the appropriate substitutions. I had lamb shank with risotto and broccolini , my wife had scallops. Both were excellent. Our waiter was very low key and attentive without being overbearing or intrusive. I had some sorbet for desert which was yummy.
We had a very nice evening, the ambiance was mellow even though the restaurant was quite busy.
A wonderful evening, we’ll be back.
Really nice Italian restaurant in West Vancouver. Great atmosphere, ambiance and food was very delicious!
A lovely relaxing dinner with friends, good service, polite staff and good food.
This was our first visit to Mangia E Bevi. All 3 of us opted for the 3 course special dinner menu that contributed $10 each to two local hospital foundations. We found the food superb, of great value, and the service impeccable. The wine list was excellent as was the suggestions from the staff. We were able to carry on quiet conversation while soft dinner music played in the background in a cozy setting. We had a 2nd venue to attend to that same night so the staff was very cognizant of the time allotted for the dinner and served the food in a professional manner, well within the time allotted, without seeming hurried. We definitely will be coming back here soon!
This restaurant serves excellent Italian food. It is consistently good. I invited an Italian couple and he said the food was outstanding. It tasted like his mother's lovingly cooked meals.
I have been many times. We had the 3 course special dinner that they serve every January.
Well worth the cost.
My partner and I enjoyed a delicious meal on Sunday night. The food and service was very good and tat made for our enjoyable evening.. we will definitely return!
The place was old fashion and the service was just ok! To be fair, it was a busy night and all their tables were full. My appetizer (Carpaccio Cremoso) was good and tastie, but main meal was not (Spaghetti Deliziosi). They forgot asparagus in my food (I think they were just very busy that night), and no one came to check up and see how everything is. It was just an ok experience and nothing special. I won’t go back again.
Great service and ambience . The food was okay or average to say the least. Nothing stood out for myself, however our server was lovely and knew about his wines.
Service excellent but kitchen failed bit this night for the first time in my experience dining at Mangia y Bevi. Penne arrabiata was cool and not spicy...veal scallopini was tasteless. Not normally the case. We are visiting again at the end of the month and I am hopeful the kitchen is back up to its normal excellent standard.
