My friend and I had a wonderful time at Family Dinner. The food, service and family environment that was created was wonderful! I would like to encourage anyone who attends to sit back, relax, get to know your neighbors and don't be a bore during the dinner conversations. Honestly, had we ended up at the other end of the table with some not so fun guests, it wouldn't have been as exciting. This is a family diner after all, sharing is caring and the more the merrier!

This is our second visit and I must say I enjoyed our first visit wat more. This visit was over populated just too many people so it was hard to just enjoy the experience. That being said it was still an awesome experience, just maybe not reserve to such a limit as when we were there.

This is much more casual than advertised. The ambiance of this restaurant wasn't great. The food was ok Italian food. Very forgettable. The service was really awful. Our waitress clearly hated her job and acted like we were an inconvenience to us.

The service, decor, and ambiance of this hidden gem were outstanding! Our waitress, Kiri, was extremely helpful in making suggestions for us as "first timers". We had the short rib meatballs as an appetizer and they were delicious. I opted for sun-dried tomato pasta with spinach cream sauce and it was out of this world. Hubby chose the steak sandwich and it was dynamite. Zeppoles for dessert. Yummo! We will be back...again, and again, and again!

Excellent food and really nice service. Ambiance is so-so for this old person with money, but probably okay for people that never wear anything but jeans. Attractive bar area and good prices. I apologize for not liking the environment more. It's not bad, just not very warm....On the other hand, no one has to dress up, and that seems to be more important to most people..just not to me. It shouldn't stop ANYONE from going here for the great food.

It was our 39th Anniversary of our first date (it was a blind date). We always go out to an Italian restaurant as we went out for Italian food on our first date. At first were a little off-put as we were seated with six people rather than a table for two but they were very nice & we had a great evening. The food was delicious and enjoyed the music & dancing (didn't participate much, as Dan has a bad knee and I had surgery a couple of months ago). Have told everyone how great the food was & it was so much fun.

Go hungry! We went for a 3 hour feast with a large group of friends on a Friday night. I really enjoyed myself.....the food was good and the atmosphere is great! It’s a bit pricey especially if you add drinks and I would have preferred a little more presence by the waitress in terms of refilling drinks, but I would recommend this place to anyone who loves Italian food and would enjoy a little entertainment on the side.

This is a wonderful dining experience for friends and family visiting, celebration of milestones, and fun date nights. The food is ALWAYS spectacular and you will always leave with something to take home. We’ve gone more than half a dozen times now and it’s worth every penny. Only recommendation is wear comfy clothing (the meal is huge) and shoes you can dance a little in.

We had never been before to Mangia! It was a blast ! Such fun and a great atmosphere . The seating is pretty tight , especially if you get the table that uses the red bench which is not very comfortable . They packed us in for sure . Next time I’ll know to request to not be along the wall with the red bench !
Overall a great experience and we already have reservations to go again!

Beyond disappointed. Was it that we were there on a Thursday and there are different chefs/cooks on Friday and Saturday? The waitress might have been first timer but didn’t bring half of what was ordered and when reminded, still never brought it, after 2 reminders? And the food ordered truly was lacking in taste and quality. Oddly the ceasar salad was good, but the italian was some of the worst we ever have had. After the reviews posted here we were expecting at least good but this was truly bad food and service. Bummed.

A true Nashville gem! Outstanding food all served up by a chef--an owner-and employees who clearly CARE! It's such a rarity to find that these days! Leave your troubles outside and come feel like you are a part of an Italian family who you have known forever.

Wonderful, wonderful experience. We are going back and telling everyone!!

Had a very good time and so much food. We loved the dancing, I wish there had been more. Maybe a little dance party at the end of the evening. The owner and I believe his wife were GREAT. And the food was very good. Don’t eat the bread, you’ll run out of room for all the other stuff.
The only negative thing we noted was ordering drinks was difficult. The servers didn’t check on us for drinks. At one point a server came to remove plates and told us she couldn’t take our drink order. I wanted to do their recommendations for each course, but didn’t get a chance. We ended up getting a bottle of wine after we realized it was too long between visits to our table. This worked out much better.
