By far the best Italian food I’ve ever had. My wife and I Will definitely be back. Everything from the appetizers to desserts were amazing.
Recommended by my sister. Staff is friendly and very attentive.
Frank, the Manager, is the best. Truly a great experience!
Fabulous dinner. Was an experience! Will definitely be going back there again.
Restaurant staff accommodated a quiet location in the restaurant, which was great! The waiter seemed extremely rushed however, but the restaurant was full, so understand it was busy.
Excellent meal and great ambiance. Perfect for a quiet dinner.
Great time. Great food.
We've lived in Manhattan Beach for 7 year and my wife and I finally went to Mangiamo's after saying we should try but always forgetting. We pretty much wished we kept forgetting. Not that it was terrible, just that it was below average, with quality service and value well below the neighboring establishments. The cocktails were good, and the heirloom tomato and burrata with cucumbers was good but bland, and it was the best dish we had. The meatballs with marinara, sausage with pasta and chicken piccata were below average Italian, not worth the high price. The bus staff was nice but the waiter was creepy and odd. I guess when you've been in business a long time you don't have to try too hard, but just about every other restaurant in the area is better in terms of quality, value and service.
Ambiance a bit extra loud and crowded in a two top table placement on very busy night got. Loved my fish but my companion didn’t love his short ribs (they were just “ok”). Cocktails were more than perfectly poured. Service gets an A for team effort but we had some inconsistencies in timing they acknowledged. Will try again on quieter weekday.
We really enjoyed our food. The pastas and meats were awesome. We weren’t huge fans of the style of their fried calamari, but the flavor was still nice. We would return for another meal!
Good menu variety. Quality ingredients. Good portions. Wine cave in back is quiet romanric.
Kim was our server and was outstanding! Best place in the South Bay!
BEST OSSO BUCO IN LOS ANGELES, SERVE WITH SPEGGETTI RATHER THAN PELENTA.
Service and food were great! We live out of town but this was our 2nd visit and will definitely be back when we are in the area.
We had not been to Magiamo’s for sometime ( not sure why). The food was wonderful, service was amazing , even stayed for dessert. We will definitely be back soon! Our reservation was for 6:46pm- perfect time before it gets super busy.
Close to the beach For a nice stroll after dinner.
Excellent as always! Whenever we’re in MB we go to Mangiamos
The food was phenomenal! Impeccable & friendly service and great ambiance. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
Loved the food and the service
A very special restaurant that's been around for 30+ years. Excellent service, cozy ambiance and, of course, delicious food & drinks! *Tip: ask to sit in the wine cellar.
Always a good choice for dining. The restaurant is very small but that makes the setting better for private dining. The noise level is acceptable and service and food quality are very good. One drawback is that parking is impossible.
Mangiamo's is our go-to date night restaurant in the South Bay. Start with sunset cocktails in the bar and move into the dining room for an incredible dinner. Everything that you want to be right when eating out is just as it should be. Great food, great service, great location, great ambiance.
Loved it! Great atmosphere and spectacular food!
Great server. Fidel. Horrible Carbonara. Oily. And the special I had was over cooked Sea Bass. So, food was not acceptable for the dollars. Wine was great, tho.
Celebrated our 40th ... seated inside the wine room .. nice & quiet as opposed to the bar area. Food & service good 👍
Kim was fabulous!!!
The food was good but the restaurant was loud most of the time and it was pretty hot and stuffy inside.
We vacation in California almost every year. This was a splendid find. The food is simply delicious. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and made fantastic recommendation. The wine selections are very good, and the prices for Manhattan Beach are reasonable. Will definitely go back.
Mangiamo is my favorite restaurant in Manhattan Beach. I always make sure to go there when I’m in town visiting! Be sure to get an extra dirty martini with stufffed blue cheese olives - it’s amazing!
Delicious food and wonderful service!
Food was great, service painfully slow. AND, I’ m being asked for a review but have yet to receive my 100 points. Weird, huh?
The food wasn't great.
Knowledgeable and efficient service. Food was amazing!
Food was delicious and service was spectacular!
The food was excellent and the staff was great! Can't wait to return.
Mangiamo has been at the top of our list of "go-to" restaurants for special occasions or an occasional date night for several years now. We had a party of 8, visiting from out-of-town and the only night we could come was Friday. It was a huge challenge due to the very loud noise coming from the bar during happy hour (our reservation was at 7 pm) and lively/loud conversation in the small dining room. We couldn't hear the specials even though the wait staff repeated at both ends of the table (it might have helped if the specials were typed on a list to read!), and we couldn't hold civilized conversation until happy hour was over and other diners started emptying out of the dining room. Huge kudos to the hostess and wait staff for being so patient and understanding, as the service was friendly, warm and outstanding as always. The menu, wine list, specials and food selections never disappoint, are a creative selection with a variety of ingredients and very well prepared. One guest in our party has a discerning taste for food and was very pleased! Quite honestly, we believe the excellent reputation of this establishment can stand on its own without having to offer happy hour drink specials attracting loud and boisterous customers into a tiny bar area so close to the dining room... especially on a busy Friday night in season. We will be back, but perhaps on a different night.
the restaurant had excellent service a nice place that has a family feel. the food was great and worth it will come back
The sunday pasta dinner special is a great value, tho the pasta dishes are very heavy.
Great Italian food with plenty of meat, fish and pasta options. We went last Sat night for our date night and always request the rear wine room; it's a small area that is lined with old style bricks. Very quiet in the room and easy to talk. The service is always 5 stars and the food never disappoints. Highly recommend Mangiomo's, one of the best restaurants in Manhattan Beach.
The entire experience was excellent and as we were waiting for someone the staff was very patient with us.
