I was looking forward to trying Mangia Bene for the first time and was disappointed My black squid ink pasta had little seafood and a terrible aftertaste. In addition my wife had the brick oven pizza which should have had a slightly charred crust but it was burnt with large black burnt portions on the crust. With all the choices of places to eat in this area i suggest eating elsewhere .

This is my favorite restaurant in RVC! My husband and I come here all the time and we're always blown away. The food is always fresh & delicious and the service is fabulous. I love trying all the fish specials on Fridays and my husband swears by the casarecce. We often split a pizza for an appetizer and take home the leftovers. Definitely our happy place.

Food was delicious and service was very good. Table was a little crowded with a lot of plates and decorations, but the servers fixed it right away. No complaints at all, I would definitely go back.

Lovely new restaurant with great food and attentive service. We read a review in Newsday and tried one of their recommendations ( pasta with string beans and potatoes and pesto)and it was delicious. We would go back.

The food was excellent! We did feel a little rush at the end of the meal, we were thinking of dessert, but we never received the dessert menu and after 10 minutes when waitress came back, we just asked for the check.

We had a great dining experience from the delicious food to the solid level of service. I could have made a meal of the bread with the ricotta and oil dip. OMG! We thoroughly enjoyed the bucatini, caserecce and papardelle dishes and the hurrays appetizer is a must! Thanks for a great dinner.

so disorganized.....even with set reservations we had to wait outside with many other people who also had reservations - at hte same time we did.... waited for approximately 15/20 minute's and we were only taken because I went inside twice to ask status of my table; the others we saw outside with same reservations came inside later than us; the first time I inquired I did didnt appreciate being told by someone we are trying to help please wait outside; she seemed very overwhelmed. thankfully it wasnt freezing outside.

Food and Service were outstanding, went there with my 2 Business Partners who were equally impressed. Highly recommend the pizza as an app, then the lamb osso, Chicken Mangia and Veal Parm. Top notch dishes, reasonably priced, all in all a great dining experience. If your in RVC, you have try here !

Super friendly staff and the pasta dishes are incredible. I highly recommend the Casarecce! I saw a lot of people having a hard time trying to find the actual door into the restaurant (the large front window is lined with iron railing pieces, people were pressing and pulling on them to figure out which one would be the door lol) - it’s on the far right! Other than that, great experience and awesome new restaurant in RVC!

Came here for Valentine’s Day and was beyond impressed. Every single plate was delicious. We had the burrata salad which was so yummy, the pizza was perfectly cooked. The Sunday sauce was wonderful, especially the braised short rib that’s in the sauce, YUM. The ambiance is cute, the restaurant was very clean, the service was great. The cocktails we ok, which is why I regretfully have to give 4 stars. I have came here 3 times and will continue to come back. Thank you for the wonderful service and exceptional meal💖

Overall excellent experience. Start to finish. Wait staff (Alana) was perfectly present throughout dinner. Wine selections were nicely diverse. We enjoyed the Super Tuscan bottle. The smooth ricotta spread with bread was a delicious start. Pizza nicely cooked and tasty. My favorite was the Cacio e Pepe Spaghetti. We will be back soon.

This was our first time trying this wonderful nod to Italian cuisine. We started with the meatballs and OMG melt in your mouth delicious. We decided to try a couple of classic dishes for our entree's, like the chicken parmigiana and the garganelli siciliano after having such a wonderful start to the meal with the meatballs and it was just as authentic, cooked perfectly and flavored to perfection. We cannot wait for the next experience, buon appetito!!! Additionally, a special thank you to Kelly, who was so very friendly and provided outstanding service with a smile, even behind the mask.
