    So Many "Best at the Beach" in the area. These fine folks are Better than Best 5 Stars all the way around. The wait staff puts an exclamation point of a true 5 STAR experience.

    We are new to the Virginia Beach area, and found the food at Mangia Qui so delicious that we ate there again the next evening. Made from scratch with high quality ingredients, pasta, seafood, and pizza were all top notch.

    Took over 1.5 hours to receive our pizza on pizza and wine night. About 45 min for the salad. Wrote owner an email back and didn’t even get as much as a sorry. Only come back another night when it’s not so busy. We won’t be returning.

    We compare all of our dining out to Mangia Qui - we have yet to find a place that serves Italian food as good or even close to this. The service is excellent, the drinks from the bar are delicious and the ambiance is good. We live about 250 miles away and always eat at Mangia Qui when we are in Virginia Beach. More than 5 Stars!

    The waiter was outstanding! His service was spot on. The food was served at the proper temperature and was delicious! The portions were more than generous! There was plenty of food to take home after we were so full we could not eat anymore. Dessert was the casualty...no more room in the tummy.

    Food took a long time to come out. It was 2 pizzas, so nothing too crazy, but noticed a table of 5 that arrived after us get all of their entrees and paid while we still were waiting for our meals. In total it took about 45 minutes from time of ordering until the food was dropped off; pizzas take about 10-12 minutes to bake, at the most 15 mins. They just seemed short staffed with both servers continuously running around seemingly overwhelmed.

    The service was good but the food was average at best. The Flounder Francese ws "swimming" in water/fluid which took away from the taste and made the coating soggy.

Dinner was wonderful, we ended with the tiramisu. Pure homemade goodness. One of the best in Hampton Roads

    Did not have high hopes because generally Italian food in Hampton Roads isn't good IMO. Decor was old, stale, kind of like a Rotary hall or similar. Service was good. No complaints about host/waiter/service. Was disappointed by the pasta...while "fresh," it is not made o -site it is brought in through a distributor. Less than stellar. Marinara was far too acidic. Fried mozzarella was good (supposedly made in house) but was a bit under fried for my taste. Overall, pretty standard for area Italian. Underwhelming and not worth a second visit.

    Didn’t like where we were seated; had a reservation so shouldn’t have been stuck in the bar corner, next to staff doing paperwork and eating goldfish. They were either short staffed, forgot about our table or busier than usual, because it took 20 minutes for our server to show up and take our drink and app order. Then another 30 minutes for the appetizer to come out. We didn’t get to order dinner until an hour in. Reservation at 6:30 and dinner didn’t come out till about 8:15. By the time we finished desert they were closed and waiting for us to leave. The cook even came out and was looking around at what was going on, not that we were the only patrons left. I don’t feel like it was a staff issue, they seemed to be consistently working. But the owner/mgr never spoke to us or asked us about our experience, which should happen when you’re running over an hour behind. The tiramisu is to die for. Cannoli crème is flavorless. Drinks are good and strong but wine is overpriced. The food was bland and no salt on the table to season it with. I won’t be back, but honestly I’ve been to worse.

    We were celebrating my mom‘s birthday on a Sunday evening and made a reservation for five people. Although there were only a handful of occupied tables, the service was incredibly slow. The server told us after we asked, that he would bring us some warm bread for the table, it was still in the oven. We ended up getting salads and an appetizer. We ordered well before we ever got the bread and when it did arrive, it wasn’t even warm. The entrées finally arrived after we waited 20-30 min, and three out of five entrées were not even hot. At that point we didn’t dare send anything back because we didn’t wanna be there all night. It was a disappointing evening, and I don’t think we will return anytime soon. We had been before, and it was good, so we were surprised by this experience.

    This is our 3rd time within a year eating here and each time we’ve been disappointed. It will be our last. Food took over a hour (it wasn’t crowded). Never received refills on drinks or bread. Hardly received any attention from our server. It was a bummer.
