It was our first visit to Mangia Qui and we loved every minute of it. We were promptly seated and took advantage of the Wednesday special of pizza, salad and wine. Our waiter, Rob, did an excellent job of making us feel comfortable. He made excellent recommendations on the food and wine. The pizza was excellent, as was the wine Rob recommended. We had the lemoncello cake for dessert, which was fabulous. We will definitely be back to try one of the many entrees on the menu. A really enjoyable experience!

Our server was kind, very polite and attentive, food was prepared and presented expertly and with obvious love for their customers. Only two problems, mostly my side. I ordered a chicken and shrimp plate, did not realize that it was pesto angel hair, neither one my favorite ( it was clearly explained on the menu) I just did not pay attention. However it was very! balanced and very tasty. The other problem, again on me, I expected more of a restaurant feel. Not bad but my imagination was of something else. Considering ambiance I felt it was a touch overpriced. Again service was great, food was very good, service was excellent

Real, fresh Italian in a friendly atmosphere. You really feel welcome & part of the family here, & the food is true to its roots & never disappoints! Fresh fettuccine alfredo is my favorite, but the pizzas are a must have as well! Pizza & wine night on Wednesdays is busy - make a reservation!

My family and I really enjoyed Mangia Qui. The food was amazing!! Everything was so hot and fresh. Good authentic Italian cuisine. Hands down one of the Best Italian restaurants that I have ever been to! Even their customer service skills were impeccable! I accidentally left my take home food on the table. When I realized that it had left it, I called the restaurant and they made me fresh half portion of my meal! I have never had that done before! That was so nice of the manager to do that for me Everyone was so nice. We will definitely be back!

Our party of four arrived to find an unexpected party of over 30 folks. Needless to say we were concerned about service but never fear our waiter (Austin) was attentive and extremely friendly. We relied on some food choices he made and were not disappointed. Our food was delicious and the service was great. Definitely worth visiting if you love Italian food!

“Go To” place for us for a long time. Never disappoints! Food selections are consistently interesting and delicious.
Our group of eight was headed to the Sandler for a play and there was never a worry about finishing on time. All courses were served in a well timed manner so we didn’t need to worry.

This was my first visit. I love Italian food, so I chose this for my birthday dinner. Food was absolutely amazing. My daughter and I shared the fried cheese, which is made with house made mozzarella and is served with delicious homemade sauce. My entree was the flounder francaise ,words cannot describe how wonderful it was. Our server Rob was knowledgeable, attentive and engaging. We finished with tiramisu, which is the best I’ve ever had. My daughter studied in Italy for a semester in college and she said it was the best she’s ever had. We will definitely be back!

Due to staffing issues they had 1 server working and he killed it! I don't remember his name but between him and a runner they kept everyone's food and drinks moving! Will definitely be back!

Very disappointed. All my previous visits were great! Chicken Parm dish was good but very little pasta this time. The Tuna and Shrimp Puttenesca was a big disappointment. The tuna was tough and rubbery, maybe less than a cup of pasta, watery sauce but perfectly cooked shrimp.

It was our first visit to Mangia Qui. I had picked up various tidbits of information about this restaurant that made us want to visit. We sat in a comfortable booth, and our waiter couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful . He was very knowledgeable, and worked with me with my various dietary restrictions so that my husband and I had perfectly delicious meals. We will definitely go back!
