The classic Italian elements are here, from pesto, tomato sauce, pastas, frutti de mare and fine cut meats, as well as a handful of house-crafted luscious desserts including Mangia mangia's
delightfully an unforgettable chocolate Souffle'. So welcome, come to our table and eat, you will be served well, you will eat well. Mangia mangia

The host highly recommended the special, lamb shanks. So two in our party ordered that. The shanks were tough (not cooked long enough) with very little sauce. Mashed potatoes were excellent however. Vegetables that came with all the dishes were cold. (2) people ordered salmon and specifically asked if they cooked it slightly underdone (the way we like it). Both were overcooked although the flavor was still very good. The other dishes that were ordered (chicken and risotto) were just fair. Only two out of 3 people liked their wine. The noise level was so loud that you could only hear the person sitting next to you. We had 7 in our party. THe one dish that was good was the spaghetti Bolognese. Maybe this is a place to just order the pasta dishes.

My friends and I go here often. Their mussels and especially the chocolate souffle are spectacular!

The main course was excellent. What stood out in my opinion was the Tiramisu. One of the best ones I have had.

We enjoyed an excellent meal at Mangia, Mangia where we celebrated New Year's Eve and the birthday of a dear friend. The food was excellent, as was the service. We were very warmly treated. The special accommodation we'd requested was graciously filled. We had a wonderful time and look forward to returning for another special occasion.

Charmed from moment one. Family warmth, welcoming ambiance. Just casual enough for us. The food was out of this world! Which is what we care about....

Our annual New Year’ Eve dinner at Mangia Mangia did not disappoint this year. We loved all the options on the menu before we tried them and were not disappointed upon eating what we ordered. The service was terrific. The staff, including the Maitresee D, is fantastic. The music was at a very low volume so you hardly noticed it and we could chat with each other. Oh, and by the way, the Chocolate Souflee is still the very best in the country!! We’ll be back there very soon.

Great place to have a quiet or intimate dinner. Wish it was open for lunch and was closer to where we live!
