Great tasting meal. And awesome service!.
Very good food. Super friendly staff.
We are regular customers. The server seem to forget about us as we were outside in a tent. Missed our guest salad and brought it out literally 2 minutes before the meal showed up. Drinks were so so. The regular bartender Kathrine wasn’t there. The drinks proved it. Disappointed in overall experience this time.
Great service and great food. Outstanding!!
Our dinners were very tasty and our waiter was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The food here is very good and they make you feel at home. Definitely coming back again soon!
Enjoyed our evening - from the food to drink to service!
Consistently delicious, and they've done a lovely job extending outdoor dining...very comfortable!
Food not that good especially for the price.
We ate outside where we could hear ourselves talk, which was nice! The food never disappoints and I liked that we could get a Riesling and a Sryah by the glass! Typically the service is better than it was this time, but it is never bad to visit with family and since we weren't in a hurry, it was fine!
We had an exceptional experience on Christmas Eve. I would highly recommend Mangia Bene to anyone that still enjoys a Resturant experience. They provide a safe, clean, delicious food experience that we plan to enjoy again and again!!
Christmas Eve with our favorite staff at our favorite restaurant! We love this place!
We love the Mangia Bene salad, bbq chicken pizza, and pasta with shrimp. It's always good and the garlic bread is always a fan favorite.
Food came out quick and hot. The service was great. They also have outdoor heating which helped at night.
Great local place with awesome Italian dishes. Fantastic service. The lobster ravioli is amazing. Make sure to save room for one of the mouthwatering desserts.
Tables are spaced out and separated with tents - Food is amazing!!! Highly recommend it. Ciao!
A family favorite. Food is consistent and good. Service is awesome! We are trying to support them as much as possible during COVID!!
Food flavor was excellent. Our waitress was Very Good - personable, helpful, even bubbly. Table was nice. Social distancing was almost far enough. Prices were reasonable.
Love the food, but wish they had disposable paper menus given Covid protocols.
This is a perfect example of a restaurant that has benefited greatly from Covid. Huge expansion into the parking lot area and curbside. No thought given on how to set tables apart with heaters and minimizing social distancing. People were coming through without masks and coughing as they walked by your table. The area did not have enough heaters and it was absolutely uncomfortable. The staff was very nice i must say and service was fast. That was the best part. Food was plain bad. The mini toasts they placed at the table were soggy. The pasta with salmon was so filled with cream, that is all you could taste. The stuffed mushrooms had absolutely no flavor. Absolutely not a repeat.
Inside ding was closed so we sat in the outside patio for dinner. I was initially worried about being cold but they had the overhead heaters, which worked out just fine. I do love the garlic cheese toast they bring out to nibble on while you wait. Service was very good, no complaints there. Food was excellent. They are a bit overpriced but food is yummy, so I pay. My favorites are the Calamari Salad, the Mangia Bene Salad, any of their pizzas and their Lasagna (all about $16-$18 each) The Malbec wine was $11/glass and very good.
The food was delicious and the service was great.
Always great food and service!
Very nice evening -many tables set up outside with lights and protected from the wind. We really enjoyed the seafood risotto, and desserts.
Great Italian food, excellent service. Gabriel was our waiter, outstanding service!
The outdoor dining area was nice and had heaters which was great. There was a bit of a wait due to the limited seating even though we had a reservation, but the staff was very accommodating asking if we wanted some water, bread or a bar drink. The food was good and the server Lucy was very nice and personable. Would definitely recommend this place!
I was excited to try this place for the first time right in my neighborhood. The place is very busy and lively and the food was delicious. Also, there bottles of wine are priced very well. We will definitely be back regularly, as it also has a very nice bar for those nights of just drinks, or apps.
As always... delicious and authentic Italian food, steaming hot, large portions, great service, lovely atmosphere + best ever martini's!
Have loved this place for 25 years
Although outside dining is not optimal, but is my safety preference during the pandemic, the server, James, was very professional and pleasant, and enhanced the lunch experience by his sense of humor and prompt and accurate service.
Atmosphere was nice, not too loud. Service was quick, efficient and so it needs were met. Food, as always, was delicious. We each ordered something different and we loved them. Looking forward to ordering something new the next time we visit this restaurant.
Excellent pasta and service. The server was so knowledgeable, we thought he was the owner. Very attentive and great with suggestions that were NOT the most expensive things on the menu! First time here for most of us and we all will come back. Well done!
Due it being Tuesday and election night, it was quiet inside. Thought my pork chop was a little tough. Love their bread and service was wonderful. We have made this a regular spot since the ownership changed some time back.
We used to come here often over the last 20 years, but since other restaurants opened up we gone a stray. I’m glad we came back here on a Sunday afternoon. The weather was beautiful and we sat outside distanced from other patrons. Freddie, our server, was very nice! He served us cold drinks and brought our food out steaming hot... Yumm! We enjoyed our meals and will definitely return more often. Thank you for a great experience!!
We have been going to Mangia Bene since they opened and their food has always been delicious and fantastic! Love our server Steve!
We go to Mangia Bene about 4 times per year and have never been disappointed. The service, food and ambiance are always stellar and we look forward to our visits. The wait staff is friendly and efficient and it seems that many of them have been at the restaurant for quite a while. The manager is usually on the floor greeting customers and helping to serve the tables. This makes the restaurant extra special for us.
We had reservations for 7:30. At 7:49 I asked when we would be seated and they acted like they forgot about us. The waitress was not friendly at all. Didn’t say hi, just said what can I get you. Didn’t say enjoy your meal when the food came. Nothing good about the experience except the food was great.
Great service from everyone, clean, and amazing food!
Loved the food, loved the staff and a great surprise find. Wish we lived closer to be able to go again.
Always a delicious meal!!
