A longtime spot in Manhattan Beach I like and gave frequented since it’s owner had Talia and Lido.
The prime rib was so tough we couldn’t eat it.
Terrible service from hostess and waitress. We waited 15 minutes before bing contacted after being seated.
This is the 3rd New Year's Eve meal my wife and I have had at Mangiamo's. They always do such a great job making it feel like a special night - the decorations are festive, the staff is very attentive, the food is superb. Our fellow diners were in good spirits and we struck up conversations with several of them.
Always really good neighborhood place.
Mangiamo is delicious and we love the Sunday night pasta special! Great for date night.
The food was mediocre at best which is the main reason I chose the restaurant. Service and ambiance was great, but rather disappointing to pay about $150.00 for crappy food.
Great dinner with girlfriends. Our server, Jeremy, could not have been nicer or taken better care of us!
Stuck in the back in a booth with a post taking up half the seat. Very uncomfortable seats. Bathroom was dirty and messy. Service was okay, but it took 45 minutes for our food to come and all we got was pasta. The pastas were okay, nothing special. The restaurant was also really loud. The prices are outrageous for what you get. Will never go back again!
Best Manhattan beach restaurant hands down. Service is outstanding always and food is great!
Great experience, excellent food and service- we had a large party. Back room was perfect for our group
Love this place
Excellent fooi and cocktails. I highly recommend this restaurant.
It is a pleasant local restaurant, food is tasty, service good, but the noise level is away too loud. It is difficult to have a conversation.
Great meal at the shore. Excellent service.
All of the staff is wonderful. The food is exquisite.
We are never disappointed! The staff, the food , the service is all fantastic!
Loved it. Food was fantastic and service was impressive
Everything was exceptional. The staff, the food, and even the drinks were fabulous. I can’t wait to go back.
Wonderful Restuarant. Highly recommend.
Been coming here whenever we have plans near LA. Food and service is always great.
Our server, Alex, was wonderful. If you want quiet and a romantic setting, ask to be seated in the wine cellar. Perfect.
The crab crusted sea bass and shrimp risotto was truly one of the best meals I've ever had. I wish I lived closer!
The food is fantastic, service was on point and attentive and we always have a great experience! Thank you!
ALEX did a great job. Excellent service. Food was really good.
My husband and I had a fabulous anniversary dinner! The service was top rate—and we will always return.
Great neighborhood Italian eatery !!
Wonderful! Great wine, food and service. Loved the back room seating booths....
I love this restaurant. It is consistently delicious, good portion sizes, you can generally get a reservation on relatively short notice, the ambiance is intimate yet lively, I often run into people I know and they pour a nice Martini! It is probably my favorite local restaurant as we live in Manhattan Beach. Really appreciate that Mangiamo is still here!
I love this restaurant and will continue to go when I am in town. Food and service is always excellent. I make it a point to go every time I'm in town. However, it is VERY loud. Might not be great for a "quiet, romantic dinner."
We love Mangiamo, reliably great food, excellent wine list, nice ambiance ( preferably eating in the quiet wine cellar area ). We particularly enjoyed the fresh starting salad, heirloom tomato stack and excellent halibut and pasta dishes; everything was terrific.
The service was attentive and timely, but not overbearing by interrupting our meal too often. Advice given about our wine pairing was useful and the wine was delightful.
All around, a very enjoyable dining experience, and we will return on a future occasion soon!
Really loud but great food. It was so loud you couldn’t hear the waiter tell us the specials.
The food was fantastic! And the service was just as good !
Great way to enjoy a dinner celebrating a birthday. Steamers and fried cauliflower were a perfect way to start off the dinner. The roasted rack of lamb was tender and delicious with the blackberry sauce being a perfect pairing.
The restaurant was very noisy, and the service was slow. I’m assuming they were understaffed the night that we visited, because the food and the cocktails took so long to come out. Our waitress kept forgetting our courses in the kitchen, so the salad came out soggy and the pasta cold. After our main course, she abruptly brought our check before we asked for it, and without offering us dessert. They comped the dessert, which was nice. Overall, the meal was still too expensive, the food was too mediocre, and the service was too bad to warrant us returning.
Don’t do it. Just awful. Noise decibel levels like you’re in a football stadium just after your favorite team has scored. Constantly loud! Can’t hear your companions inches across the table from you. The worst experience in Manhattan Beach I have ever had in decades. Food overly priced and prepared poorly, not to specifications. Waited 1 hour 20 minutes for food and it was wrong when served. Needless to say we will never come back and would rather go down the street and order from a bar than sit through this humiliation of a food establishment again. Frank the manager/owner should be ashamed. Poor reflection on a great city. It was barely surviving until other good food restaurants came to the area and now it hangs on with unseat-able spill-over from the other eateries. Wow wish it was replaced with a better place.
Main part of restaurant is terribly noisy. We got moved to the "wine room" and it was perfect. Next time I will specify that on my reservation.
we always visit while in town and everyone knows us. our favorite server was not in our area where we sat but she came over to say hello regardless. food is always perfect. sit in the back room if you want some quiet time!
