I found this restaurant online because of its high ratings and reviews. The reviews are absolutely right. The wait staff is knowledgeable and friendly and the food is fantastic. My date and I spent a lot of time talking and drinking before we decided to order but our waitress gave us all the time we wanted and we never felt rushed. When we finally got around to ordering, our waitress helped us with recommendations and was able to tell us about all the ingredients and their preparation. We ordered their soup of the day and entrees from their daily specials. I can say that everything we ordered was exceptional. The only complaint I have is that the dining area is a little loud when the restaurant is packed but that’s the case virtually anywhere else as well. Mangiamo’s is a little pricy to go often but the food and the wait staff make it all worth it. I will definitely come here again. Definitely make reservations as there is usually a 30-60 minute wait otherwise.
We get so sick of the regular Manhattan Beach restaurants and were pleasantly surprised by Mangiamo. The food was service and atmosphere were good, but most importantly, the food was wonderful. I highly recommend trying Mangiamo if you are looking for a good Italian place in the Beach!
