The decor is lovely and the food is good, traditional Italian food. However, within the space of 1 hour there had been about 5 birthday announcements which meant the lights in the restaurant would go out whilst the staff urged everyone to clap and sing along. Once would have been fine but it was overkill by the fifth time and made it difficult to eat our food or have a conversation!

We arrived at 8 on a Saturday evening a group of at least 20 people and possibly slightly the worse for drink were arguing with the maitre d' about their bill.
We were left waiting for a while but the entertainment was worth it.
When we were seated we were immediately asked for our drink order, as we hadn't yet placed our bums on seats we had to ask for some time. Perhaps too attentive at this point.
Nonetheless we ordered the house red,calamari shared between us which was excellent.
My wife has the canneloni and I had a steak in tomato and chilli.
Both were great.
This place has really good service and more than decent food.
Unfortunately there were an uncommonly large number of birthday groups and after six renditions of Happy Birthday to people I didn't know, the novelty wore off somewhat.
Anyhow,I really enjoyed Mangiamo and I will certainly be back.

The staff are extremely friendly when you walk in and there is a great authentic Italian/Mediterranean feel. The decor is lovely. The food backs up the look of the restaurant and is divine. The Mixed Kebab was really good and I would thoroughly recommend going if you get a chance. A Jewell in a lovely village!
