    Granted it was the night before Valentine’s Day ….the service was slow, there was confusion as to who was supposed to serve our table. Someone comes and takes a drink order 5 mins later someone else comes. I got served my wine my husband waited 10 mins for his drink to come. Someone takes our appetizer order 5 mins later another person comes. They finally got it squared away but annoying nonetheless. The food was good but it appeared to have sat under the heat lamp a bit. It wasn’t up to its usual standard. Somewhat disappointed.

    The layered beet salad with goat cheese was a great starter. I ordered the special pasta of the evening with Italian sausage and butternut squash sauce. I liked its sweetness of the sauce and it contrasted well with the spicy sausage. The pasta seemed very fresh, so the dish was delicious.

    First of all, it was surprising to learn that points would not be recognized, only minutes before we arrived. Second, reviews claimed the restaurant was quiet, which it was not. The high noise level was not surprising given the small size, but we had guests that were hard of hearing. the taste of the food was mixed. I had sand dabs that were extremely mushy. This was very unusual compared to other sand dabs I have had in the Los Angeles area. The pasta dishes that others had were acceptable.

    I have been here twice in the last 3 weeks and several times before with other people that made the reservsation, the food is very good, the ambiance and service are very good, just this one time it was kind of slow service wise, even though it was a very slow evening, but the staff is over all super attentive, even the bartender came to our table because they ran out of Bailleys for an Espresso Martini and he came to explain how he was going to make it without it, great detail from him, we are really appreciative.

    Went to this restaurant in a recommendation from a friend. Seats near the bar is affected by noise. I had the osso bucco which was excellent. My husband had the salmon and said it wasn’t the best. We also had the beet stack which was very good. We would go back again. Service was very good. Thank you Victoria.

    Food was excellent, as always. Gnocchi appetizer was best of 3 apps we shared. Chicken parm was strong. Also, Carbonara and Salmon also excellent. Our waiter was a bit distracted, but otherwise service was good. A great a spot in MB.

    My favorite restaurant in the South Bay. Their welcoming attitude is just the beginning of a great evening. They always treat me like their best customer, even when I have shown up in shorts and a beach attire. They seem to find a table for me even when I do not have a reservation and it is crowded holiday. The food is always excellent. I am partial to the fish dishes because they are difficult to get right. No other restaurant does them better.

    The food was delicious! My husband and I had the Chicken Marsala, house salad and French fries. It was all amazing, the Marsala sauce is one of the best I’ve ever had. The bartender made great cocktails and it was great people watching. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Mangiamo’s.

    The ambience of the restaurant is nice, and the service was excellent. We ordered the Sunday pasta special that comes with the salad. My Caesar salad lacked crispness in the greens and was barely dressed. My pasta dish with salmon and asparagus was a large portion, but while pleasant was short of expectations.

    Food and service were extraordinary; I can't believe it had been so long since I'd been there. The only reason I subtracted anything from my rating is because of the noise level. It is a very small restaurant with low ceilings and no sound deadening materials applied anywhere.
