Unfortunately, we were at Mangiamo's on Thursday night, two days before their closing. The staff was disheartened. The food was so-so. I thought it was dishonest not to inform customers of the planned closing on Saturday. Our meal was an anniversary celebrartion and was a let-down to put it mildly.

Our second restaurant for Restaurant Week GR, we were surprised by the beautiful setting and home right in town. Oh the history!! Beautiful. We ordered from the restaurant week menu and our food was brought in a timely fashion. Unfortunately, our octopus was extremely overdone and chewy, the flavor was awesome but several times we were tempted to dispense our bite into a napkin simply because we weren't getting anywhere with chewing. My steak was medium well when I ordered medium rare. The creme brulee went unfinished as they tasted so burnt and that was the taste that stuck with us for hours after. We also noticed consistency is not their thing. The table next to us ordered almost the exact menu items as they were there for restaurant week as well, and my steak came as a filet mignon type cut (equally as tall as wide) and theirs came thin and long. He had ordered rare and got medium. My husband ordered the seafood dish and enjoyed it but it was nothing remarkable and we noticed that other tables who had ordered the same dish got large spoons in their dish, where my husband did not. The creme brulee dish was served to us on a little plate with a spoon and the table next to us received the creme brulee dish only and a fork, no plate. The paper on the table is annoying. Our waitress was charming and did a great job. I drink only water at every restaurant I go to and for some reason, this water was nasty. I asked if they had bottled water (never asked for bottled water before) and she was very sweet and accommodating. Thank you for that. The manager made an appearance but not at our table or any of the tables in our row EXCEPT for a table with several young ladies whom he frequently returned to, and even made their waiter work around him while he hung out. Very unprofessional. We are glad we tried it but we will not return, there are so many wonderful options in the city and nearby areas.

I love the atmosphere of this lovely old stately home. We met with some traveling friends for a business meeting and it was perfect for conversation. I ordered the steak which was too well done. The others ordered the baseball size meatball and spaghetti, which is a favorite and always good. For desert we loved the chocolate truffle and tiramisu both excellent. I haven't been during the day but the home is so beautiful by evening lamplight. Mangiamo!

Beautiful place! The only thing I would change is the paper tablecloths! It was kind of annoying. Cloth tablecloths are much better!

We enjoyed the evening with friends, location is good as it is only a few miles from home, choice selections were varied from complete entree' to sandwich or burger.

Wonderful meal in an intriguing home. Our waiter, Joe, did a fine job; attentive without 'hovering'. He endorsed the Brussel sprouts and he was right, they were exceptional. Special acknowledgment goes to Jose, the truffle maker. Absolutely made my husband's night!

The restaurant location is lovely but our meals were just mediocre. Three out of four of us had chicken as part of our meals and all of our chicken was over-cooked and chewy. My husband's veal dish was very chewy as well. The brussel sprouts appetizer was delicious. Dessert was unremarkable. So all in all, just "meh". We won't be returning...too many other GR restaurants to try!

Nothing like our first visit years ago. High marks on flavor. One meal was small in portion. One (the Chefs Choice) was a little dry. One of us got sick on the way home. He was the only one who had the Mussels. Disappointed!

You need to update your online menu. Saw a few items I liked and was disappointed when they were not featured on the actual menu.

We went there to celebrate our mom's birthday. Our waiter was terrible. We waited over 20 minutes for our drinks and 90 minutes for our food. My son's "rare" steak was so overdone it was like a hockey puck; he sent it back. There were 11 of us and not one of us enjoyed our meal. Most of us just didn't eat them. I have NEVER written a negative review before but this place earned it. We were hoping for so much more given the occasion.
