    Service was robotic - not usual at this restaurant. Veal Marsala had a heavy rosemary taste while Veal Francaise was tasty. Portions were very large! However, presentation was messy and soggy. Calamari was delish as an appetizer. This is unusual for this restaurant so we'll give it another try in a few weeks.

    We went on Wednesday, which is pizza and wine special night. The pizzas were excellent and with the wine and the two salads it all was at a very reasonable price.

    Good was just ok. Got a Caesar salad and croutons were from a box. Bread was mediocre. Eggplant parmigiana and lasagna were good, but have had better. Service was very good.

    This is by far the best Italian restaurant in Virginia Beach! A real hidden gem. They have a wonderful selection and you can tell by the taste that everything is made fresh. Special requests are welcome. No question this is the best!

    We had a large Margherita pizza and two salads. The crust was great - nice texture, great flavor, and the mozzarella was good, but the sauce was too heavy for my taste. Very heavy on the tomato paste. Service was outstanding.

    We have been to Mangia Qui a few times before but we are not considered "regulars." Recently, the service and wait for food, even water refills, etc. was quite disappointing and regulars were obviously more catered to. The food quality continues to be good.

    Party of five for reservation turned out to be only four. We arrived early and were seated right away. Water was brought immediately and filled multiple times during dinner. We tried the tuna and calamari appetizers and were very pleased with both. I had the Norwegian salmon special and it was cooked perfectly. My husband had the sausage pasta and it was delicious and plentiful. My daughter had the lasagna and she was the only one able to finish her meal. She mentioned it had more than the usual amount of meat in the sauce. My grandaughter had a special request for the fettucine alfredo and was delighted with it. Service was very good and I had the best cosmo ever. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and plan to go back when I am in the area.

    We had reservations so our table was ready when we arrived. Service was a bit slow but the waiter apologized and was attentive to our needs. Five out of six diners were pleased with their meals. One felt there was too much sauce on the fish. My veal parmesan was excellent and it was a huge portion! My husband's dish was perfect. This is a great place for friends to gather for good Italian food.

    This was our first time dining at Mangia Qui. Unfortunately I was not feeling well and was unable to eat my dinner. Service was amazing. My fiancé ordered Chicken Parm and said it was the best he has ever had. Our waiter was kind enough to box my meal up and I look forward to enjoying it tomorrow for lunch.

    As always, we love this restaurant and had a wonderful meal. The food is always outstanding and we are never disappointed! It was very busy in the restaurant last night so the service was a bit slower than normal. No worries, we are patient people and were entertaining an out of town friend so it gave us plenty of time to chat and catch up. Our server was friendly but he was very, very busy!
