    We had a large Margherita pizza and two salads. The crust was great - nice texture, great flavor, and the mozzarella was good, but the sauce was too heavy for my taste. Very heavy on the tomato paste. Service was outstanding.

    We have been to Mangia Qui a few times before but we are not considered "regulars." Recently, the service and wait for food, even water refills, etc. was quite disappointing and regulars were obviously more catered to. The food quality continues to be good.

    Party of five for reservation turned out to be only four. We arrived early and were seated right away. Water was brought immediately and filled multiple times during dinner. We tried the tuna and calamari appetizers and were very pleased with both. I had the Norwegian salmon special and it was cooked perfectly. My husband had the sausage pasta and it was delicious and plentiful. My daughter had the lasagna and she was the only one able to finish her meal. She mentioned it had more than the usual amount of meat in the sauce. My grandaughter had a special request for the fettucine alfredo and was delighted with it. Service was very good and I had the best cosmo ever. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and plan to go back when I am in the area.

    We had reservations so our table was ready when we arrived. Service was a bit slow but the waiter apologized and was attentive to our needs. Five out of six diners were pleased with their meals. One felt there was too much sauce on the fish. My veal parmesan was excellent and it was a huge portion! My husband's dish was perfect. This is a great place for friends to gather for good Italian food.

    This was our first time dining at Mangia Qui. Unfortunately I was not feeling well and was unable to eat my dinner. Service was amazing. My fiancé ordered Chicken Parm and said it was the best he has ever had. Our waiter was kind enough to box my meal up and I look forward to enjoying it tomorrow for lunch.

    As always, we love this restaurant and had a wonderful meal. The food is always outstanding and we are never disappointed! It was very busy in the restaurant last night so the service was a bit slower than normal. No worries, we are patient people and were entertaining an out of town friend so it gave us plenty of time to chat and catch up. Our server was friendly but he was very, very busy!

    My brother and I were seated promptly at seven. Our guests didn’t show up and the staff were very patient about us waiting for them. Carl had the chicken and sausage Florentine; I had a Bianca pizza. Both were excellent. Will definitely go back.

    My girlfriend and I ate here for our Valentines Day dinner and had an amazing meal! We're both fans of Italian cuisine and can honestly say that this is the best we've had here in Virginia Beach. Everything was fresh or homemade, extremely flavorful and very well prepared. The portion sizes were generous without being overwhelming (no leftovers) and the staff was friendly, attentive and informative when asked questions. The restaurant was clean and well cared for and everyone seemed happy to be there and that gave the place great energy. We will definitely be returning. 10/10

    We’ve been to this restaurant multiple times now and for various occasions, it has never disappointed us. The servers are attentive and polite, they go as far as filling our glass when the wine gets just a bit low, and not interrupting conversation when attending to the table. The food is IMO the best Italian you’ll find in Hampton Roads. And somehow the prices are reasonable. The look of the place is deceiving, plopped in the middle of its own parking lot with a few random shops beside it, I drove past it for years and didn’t even know it was a restaurant. There isn’t any fluff inside either, but it’s always clean, fairly quiet and provides a warm atmosphere— the perfect place to showcase a perfect meal. I’d give it 5 stars again and again.
