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.
Delicious food. Great service. Always a winner.
the service was really outstanding and the food was quite good. A really enjoyable evening to celebrate my mother's 92nd birthday!
We had a party of six and everyone really enjoyed their food. I've been here many times and it's always been very good food and service. The service is always friendly and the place has a bit of a cozy feel.
This restaurant never disappoints. Delicious, high quality food, friendly, knowledgeable staff, and a great wine list! We ordered a variety of entrees and everyone was happy & full.
This was definitely the worst dining experience ever!! There was a party of ten that was so obnoxiously loud, that we hardly couldn't hear what our waiter was saying. Their party had a wine fueled blast I'm sure. But no one at restaurant told them to keep it down a little for the other patrons for fear of them losing out on more wine consumption from that party I assume. The waiter was sympathetic and sure he felt bad that Mother's day was being ruined. Then, the food came. I ordered a rack of lamb. I have no ideal what lamb that came from. Those were the smallest portions of lamb i had ever seen ever!! If you are on a diet and do not want a romantic dinner with your wife, then great!, this is the place!
Noise level super loud; we had to lean close to hear each other. A dry cork problem took about 10 minutes to solve. Servers didn't seem real attentive: I poured my own wine most of the time. I asked our server to join us to sample the fine wine, she said yes, 15 minutes later I reminded her, then we finally were ready to leave and she apparently chose to take it in the back to do the taste.
We love Mangiamo! Consistently great quality food, great ambiance, obvious desire to please. Always a pleasure.
We ordered drinks, appetizers (were great), soup, and main course. Soup never showed up! :-(
Food was not good.
Celebrated our 15th year wedding anniversary at Mangiamo. Everything was absolutely outstanding...the food, service and ambience. We shared a bottle of merlot with steamers, Osso Bucco and Braised Short Ribs. The steamer's broth was truly divine. The meals were expertly prepared.
Accommodated our late reservation, great food and made our anniversary wonderful!
Had a wonderful meal. Staff was on top of things and always there when we needed them!
Had not been to Mangiamo in years. What I found in my youth to be a wonderful restaurant now seems mediocre, at best. The menu needs more creativity from the kitchen and the interior needs an update. In general I would pick FWD and MB Post over Mangiamo.
Most ordered some type of seafood and salad and loved everything. The pear salad was very good. The sampling, variety of 4 different rolls was consumed quickly at our table.
Our drinks arrived quickly and they chilled our remaining wine for us during dinner.
The crab crusted seabass on shrimp risotto is what I had and it was amazing!! I sampled someones vodka pasta and it was excellent. Thanks Mangiamos! Always a great dinner!
Been coming here for years and it's consistently strong! Their chicken marsala is one of the best dishes I've ever had. My sister loves their scallops. A solid space without feeling like you're in a scene...
Food average at best. Meatball appetizer very good. Service very attentive. But food? Meh.
service was outstanding staff did an amazing job it's nice to go to a place where folks know their jobs and how to treat the clients. thank you
Love Mangiamo's! Never disappoints. Great service, good and atmosphere.
We come here a lot. It’s one of my friends favorite restaurants in Manhattan Beach. So for his birthday he wanted to come here again. The staff is excellent and very accommodating. My friend and I both chose the special of carbonara, it’s one of our favorites. We were with two other people one had Sandabs and loved them and my friend had the special halibut which she thought was not up to par. So that makes three meals that were disappointing. Carbonara had about seven specs of pancetta in it and very little flavor. They were nice enough to bring us a dish of pancetta to add to it but it did little to help. It was also my friends birthday and it was noted in the OpenTable reservation that it was a birthday celebration and we mentioned it to the waiter at the beginning and I expected a small dessert for the table however nothing came. We ordered ice cream to share and after that was finished a plate of bread pudding showed up. I found out that my friend went in and mentioned it. So that was a bit of a letdown too. I’m sure will be back again but it’s going to take a little while.
Platos abundantes y muy ricos. Los mozos excelentes! Súper recomendable
Thanks again I’ll be there
Happy Hour is very nice. Dinner on Saturday night too loud to have any reasonable conversation. Food is very good.
Great food, good service; but very close quarters, especially when surrounded by unruly children.
Probably your best option for authentic Italian dining in the South Bay. Has a great wine list, and everything I've had there is good.
