It is awesome when you get a choice of soup or salad with your meal. They have a very extensive menu with many choices. The Grouper Francese was very good. However, the side of asparagus was ok. It tasted like it was fried, very oily....More

We've live about five minutes from Mangia Mangia for 19 years. We went once years ago and were unimpressed. Our favorite Italian place closed so we've been looking for a replacement. I convinced my husband that we should give it a chance. We didn't have...More

When you walk in, you're immediately taken aback that this lovely, warm ambiance is in a shopping strip center. The menu is large with options for everyone. The portions are HUGE! I highly recommend trying this gem!

Food is mediocre. Very dated and nothing new. Many good places to try, not this place. If you are staying at the hotel you might wBt to try. Personally, I'd order a pizza.

Delicious homemade soups made daily served with wonderful bread. The lunchtime specials are so reasonable and filling. I suggest the soup and 1/2 Eggplant sandwhich without the bread..just sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on it and it's perfect and even a half is very generous portion.

Went there for dinner tonight as I always do after shopping next door. The poor waiter spilled an entire glass of chianti on the table and my lap, phone and coat. The manager came with a rag. I quite expected them to do something, not...More
