Our first visit to the restaurant and we were very impressed by the food and the service.
Great food! Great service! Great value!
Always great service and food
Fabulous on all counts. Especially enjoyed the $12 pasta special. What a wonderful surprise!
Highly recommended to us by close friends who frequently dine there and we felt the people over delivered in every respect. Feels like a family run restaurant as the servers really seem to care about all aspects of the dining experience. Food was off the charts good and the server was perfect. Thank you we will definitely be back !
Our dining experience was wonderful. First we were informed that all the pastas dishes were $12 which was wonderful. The waiter was exceptional. He took his time and did not rush us. He took care of all our needs and even brought us a second plate of bread without us having to ask. Our salads were very tasty and both of us where happy with the pastas that were served to us. Our overall experience was very good and we will be coming back to dine again. We will also be recommending your restaurant to our friends.
Thanks Again Moira & Rob Boyd
Party of 4. We all enjoyed tour meals. The dinner main course special was excellent. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant if anyone in your group has dietary restrictions (such as gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan), but this is a good spot if you enjoy more traditional Italian-style meals.
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.
Wonderful food and very excellent servers who are foodies and know their wines - one speaks three languages
What a treat !!
Mangia E Bevi is my absolutely favourite restaurant! No matter what I order, it is beautiful and beautifully prepared. The service is fantastic. I take every opportunity to go for a superb dining experience.
M et B is a familiar neighborhood restaurant to us....but the food has definitely been kicked up a notch or two in attention to detail and flavor. We have been many times and it was New Years Eve but we ate from the normal menus and all four of us thought the experience was outstanding. Our server was attentive, informative and friendly with out intruding or pressing us in any way. It was definitely a 5 star experience.
We dine at Mangia E Bevi about once a month. It’s our first choice for a Northshore restaurant.
Our favourite West Van restaurant, great for special occasions such as birthdays & anniversaries.
We were a group of six and specifically booked for the special truffle menu. The truffle appetizers and main courses, which were fairly evenly distributed in our group, were all outstanding. A great evening.
Great food, great service & great evening. One of our favorites.
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 a nice place for dinner out for any reason or occasion - we all enjoyed it and will be coming back again. The staff were excellent - friendly as well as very professional.
We dined with friends. The service was extremely professional. Absolutely the best lamb in town. Love this place!
Come here lots in the past ... always great food and polite staff .. highly recommend😌
Service was extremely slow. We entered the restaurant with a reservation at 7:15pm and were not served our dinner until well after 9pm.
Great little Italian neighbourhood restaurant. Calimari steak was fantastic! Great food, great service!
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,
We consistently get good here. The wine selection is also wonderful.
Service was very poor, fruit flys all over the place! Not what we expected!
Took out some good friends to our favourite restaurant. Mangos Bevi never dissapointed. The best carpaccio I have ever eaten. The meal was a big hit with everyone.
The food was excellent but we waited for a long time for our food to be served. Not one time that we were asked if how's everything nor offered if we want black pepper or more cheese on the pasta 🍝 . I guess the server was super busy that night.🙁
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.
We are lucky to live nearby so this is our go-to restaurant for authentic Italian cuisine. Always outstanding.
