The cuisine was excellent. The setting and atmosphere felt safe and spaced apart with good ventilation. The service was beyond excellent, dry attentive and the server didn’t have a problem with us customizing our order abit. We will be back!

We are so glad that we were able to have dinner at Mangiamo again. Eating outdoors was really fun; we had a lovely view of the Manhattan Beach pier and the surf. The cocktails were good (1 Adult Day Care and 1 Negroni), the fried cauliflower appetizer was perfect, with the cauliflower still a bit crunchy. We had the salmon and the san dabs, which were both great, and two divine glasses of barrolo. So happy to have had the experience again!

We ordered two risottos and they were a little dry, a little flavorless. Maybe we got unlucky. I will come back to try other options of pasta and fish.

The food was great and the view was spectacular (outside seating with an ocean view). my only issue is the service for this level of dining was sub-par. The waiters were rushed, no polished, not so easy to understand (yes, even taking into consideration the masks). Also, very difficult to flag someone just to get a water refill. However, the food made up for the service. I will be back!

The food was delicious. We sat at their outdoor patio. They didn't have any umbrellas so it was too bright.
The server was a little slow, but I would still recommend this place for the amazing Italian dishes, drinks and dessert.

Very disappointing meal. We used to love this restaurant. It seems as if they had not planned for the increase in patrons. Our server was constantly running from one table to the other.

Service was stellar as was the food. We sat inside fire the first time in a year so that was lovely.

My $13 cocktail arrived in a glass that was half full (or half empty if that's your thing). I know places serve wine like that, but seriously, it was probably 1/4 shot of booze. If you had removed the ice cube, it was probably less than 1/8 cup of liquid. I'll be back but will order wine.

What can we say? Without seeming to miss a beat due to the lock down the staff at Mangiamos delivered on their usual stellar service and tasty food. From our long time favorite Pheasant Nachos to sea bass and pasta entrees we had a great meal with great friends. Their inside dining was warm and intimate and safe. So good to you Mangiamos!

The view was fantastical. The food subpar at best. The timing of the food left people waiting for dishes to come out. With everyone dinning outside the dishes got cold. I guess it turned out ok we just drank instead.

For an evening after a rain storm, the outside patio was actually fairly warm, until it rained again. The staff were so wonderful about helping us check out etc. We had the fried cauliflower and split the vodka pasta and cacio e pepe.

Nice meal.

Dinner for 4 outside with a view of the ocean, was wonderful. Service was sometimes lacking (forgotten drinks, slow to replace utensils etc.) but overall friendly staff and delicious food. Also, they're accommodating with dietary substitutions which is always appreciated!

We celebrated a gf birthday here. Our reservation was for 7pm and upon arrival we we’re seated right away. Our waiter was amazing and his food suggestions were delicious. We ordered the fried cauliflower to start...highly recommend. For dinner we had the Roasted Beet tower, the chopped dinner salad, Crab Crusted Sea Bass, and Vodka Pasta. Everything was soooo good.

We were seated far enough away from ppl that made us feel COVID safe. Would definitely recommend this place. Also, the location is great.

See you soon Mangiamo!!!

It was a real treat to be able to dine again and I am glad I picked Mangiamo. The waiter and manager were very attentive. They made sure the heat lamps were complenetary to me and my friend. I had the fettuccine Alfredo which was super-creamy. My friend enjoyed her dish too. We both plan to come back.

I realize outside dining is not what any of us want especially on a cold windy night. However, food was mediocre, table so small could hardly fit a plate and glass of wine, twice brought the wrong dish. First, I was given a tomato soup which was taken back. I ordered Frutti Di Mare @$31 and ended up with a "fish soup" full of potatoes and scattering of fish, even though the dish was charged at $12, however, that is not what I asked had ordered. So twice I was given the wrong dish.
If you are going to continue with outside dining (I realize not the choice of the Owners but the Edict of our Revered Governor) please orchestrate the service to be somewhat pleasing/correct to take away from the fact we are" street dining."

I mentioned in my profile that we were celebrating our 36th Wedding Anv. What was the point of placing it in the profile and then having the profile asking what am I'm celebrating and I put the info in. Only to get to the restaurant and no mention at all.
