Excellent as always.
Never eaten here before but had known about this place for several years. We ate early (5:15) and at an outside table which was very comfortable. Service was prompt, polite, informative and excellent. Great wine selection, my selection discussed and was perfect. Food was very tasty and perfectly prepared. Shared the lemon tart for dessert, a perfect end. This is a place we will visit again. Delightful.
excellent food, excellent service, overall a great dining experience.
We have been to Mangia e Bevi numerous times in the past, and have enjoyed our visits. While not exceptional, the food has been of good quality and service has been pleasant. On this visit, however, we found a few things not to our liking, and our overall experience was less enjoyable as a result. Some examples: My wife ordered a favourite of hers - the beef carpaccio with parmesan - and our server asked if she'd like to have Arugula with it, as many guests apparently do. My wife agreed, and it was fine, but we were surprised to find that a charge was added to the bill for it. Really? It was a $16 appetizer and you had to add $3 for Arugula you recommended? Tacky. In addition, the carpaccio comes with a dressing/sauce that my wife particularly likes, and it was not much in evidence with the dish. Small things, perhaps, but this is a signature dish for us at this restaurant and it was disappointing. I ordered the beet salad with Buratta, and, not to overdo the Arugula theme, I had to push aside an abundance of Arugula to find the Buratta. The Buratta was not the best I've had, but not the worst either, although a small serving at best. Which, I guess, was appropriate, since there weren't many beets either. Again, disappointing. For a $17 appetizer, I expected better. Our mains were the mushroom ravioli and the strozzapreti - both acceptable, but far from extraordinary (which was OK, because that was our expectation). Still, it would have been a pleasant surprise to discover an exceptional pasta dish at a restaurant focussed on Italian cuisine.
The service was fine, although a bit cloying, to be honest. Better that than indifferent.
Excellent food and the service was amazing fast always with in reach but never had to ask.
Great food and service as usual
We have been to this restaurant several times in the last six months and on both occasions we had a great experience. The food is great and consistent in quality and the wine list is very well selected. We found a great white blend produced by the famous Camus wine producers and it was super. One spaghetti dish is to die for Delicioso and everything else including the dessert was great.
Service and Food were a 5 out of 5.
Great place, would definitely recommend to friends.
Excellent service. Great food.
We enjoyed our evening at this restaurant. Fine Dining - professional waiters - lots of choices for vegetarian or fish. Well done Italian.
We were there on pasta night we all had different plates and they were terrific.
The team here is just fantastic worth the trip !pastas are always delicious and wine list is well put together and very well priced
Our group all had pasta dishes and they were all absolutely delicious. Will be back there very soon!
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!
