Mangiamo is such a hidden gem! It may get lost in the excitement of the 'new' local cuisine, which is a big mistake. Everything on the menu is fabulous. The service is friendly and competent.
Ok for Happy Hour. Prices dont reflect food quality.
Love this place, albeit, they couldn’t handle the Labor Day crowd. Disappointed.
Emily, our sever, was fantastic.
Frank, the Manager, is always personable and professional.
Good Italian food but nothing particularly creative on the menu. Very noisy. Had to talk loudly (like everyone else) to be heard by guests.
Birthday date. Everything was perfect.
Food and drinks were incredible. Was a little noisy but the ambiance overall was very hip and made us feel like we were fancy and important. Service was less than stellar but likely it was because we were young and looked like we may not be the wealthiest people in the room. Got a nice birthday dessert though so that was appreciated. We will be going back.
Wife’s birthday and our wedding anniversary
They always do a great job with our requests for the wine cellar.
Food and drinks and crowd stellar as usual.
Miss the Nee York from the menu!
Only one steak offered- Filet- Good, but I miss the beautiful N York!
Service and overall ambiance is great!
usually this is great, but the nosie level was high and the food took 1.25 hours to arrive.
This place always exceeds our expectations. We make it a point to eat here every time we are in town. Service is great, prices are reasonable, and food comes out surprisingly quick for as busy as they are. The food is always spectacular. It is very busy and very loud because all of the tables are so close, but as long as you can live with that, you will no doubt have a spectacular meal.
Best short ribs in the area; excellent food and service
From the moment we walked in the restaurant, we knew we had made the right choice. There were 3 of us and we were seated at a nice table, and the waiter immediately came to welcome us. We began with the "Tomato Tower" special appetizer and it was extremely tasty and well presented. (Hoping they have it next time we go). We then had the 'fish special' of the day with ravioli, which was also delicious and well presented. The martinis were good and the ambiance was lovely. We look forward to returning soon!
We have not been disappointed whenever we have dinner.
Great food and service. Can get loud though because it’s small.
Very noisy. After 20 years you'll think that they would invest in a wine cooler. Nothing worse than ordering an expensive red wine and having it served warm.
We love this place. But the service was unusually poor. Inattentive waitress. Wine and water glasses sat empty for way too long. Hopefully just an anomaly. Will go again.
Menu on open table is quite different than in the restaurant. Steamed clams were salty and the scollops were gritty. Would not recommend
Fan was blowing too cold in the bar area. When the fan was shut, it made a distracting high pitch sound. Fix the fan!
Service was great. Food left a lot to be desired.
We always enjoy this local jewel. High quality food and a pleasant staff makes this one of the best restaurants in the South Bay.
Best meal in Manhattan Beach
Awesome experience. Our server Kim really knew the menu and was just great! We will be back...often!
The staff, food and location are consistently wonderful! Thank you to Frank for always being a great host to all.
Always good food and great service. Always noisy. Fun spot
Great and very knowledgeable servers who went into detail describing the items on the menu! Service was fast and the dinners all delicious!!! Mangiamo never disappoints !
The server and hostess were great! The food, was nothing special. For an Italian restaurant at this price point I expected flavorful cuisine. Most of the food was extremely bland and when there was a pop it was thanks to hot sauce. This was my 3rd try and sad to say my last.
I visit Los Angeles area every year for a conference, and always have a great experience at Mangiamo's! Love it!
Great food - service not great
The best salmon I have ever had!!
We had an outstanding time at Mangiamo! Two of our guests (one was the former President of a LA college and his wife) enjoyed the pasta special with mussels and I had the Petrale sole over risotto which was delicious. My husband had the Sea Bass which was equally as tasty. Our service was impeccable and they were able to seat us right away with our reservation. Our guests were very impressed as well and will be repeat customers !
Always great food and service, one of our favorites!!
Excellent food and service, and ambience. But the place gets crowded and the noise level doesn't allow for a nice and quiet conversation.
We had five different main courses and every one was fabulous. Even the salads were terrific and the desserts were out of this world. The service was equally outstanding. I could not recommend a restaurant more highly.
tiger prawn starter and the white haven sav blanc where heavenly! love this place for years. casual dining or fancy special occasions, i’m always happy
Amazing food, exquisite service! Noise level was more than expected but understandable given the busy time and compact space.
A wonderful meal, amazing service, perfect ambience - as always!
Loved the restaurant. Food quality is very good but noise level is intolerable on a Saturday night.
Pasta Dish was amazing, the pork chop dish was just ok.
Staff very attentive and great ambiance. We will be back with friends.
