Still one of my favorite meals in LA.
A classic for a reason with a phenomenal menu and great service.
Great for a special occasion or even a busy weeknight when you need an awesome meal.

OMG, Thursday's dinner was superb. We took some family from out of town, who were staying pretty much around the corner from the restaurant, and we were able to sit back in the wine room away from that energetic crowd out front.

The food was tremendous, as it alway is. The service was impeccable and we were able to sit for over 2 hours enjoying our meal, dessert and our family.

A great evening, even if it is 60 miles from our home in South Orange County. Any chance we can be up in Manhattan Beach, we will have dinner here.

My wife and I thought the food was excellent and the service was quick and attentive without being overbearing. We'd highly recommend Mangiamo's and will certainly be back.

Amazingly good food and service. Consistantly delicious over the years with excellent flavors and quality preparation. We so miss their Talia (now Fishing with Dynamite) for its easy access and cozy dynamic but we enjoy the same wonderful recipes and personal attention under the Mangiamo roof.

Always awesome. Took my 12 year old daughter there. Everything great except table so close you could hear the lady at next table dropping f bombs left and right as she was getting tipsy. Other than that awesome food and service.

We were celebrating my husband's birthday and asked for a table in the wine cellar for privacy and quiet. We got what we asked for; the service was great; the food was amazing; it was not expensive; and they brought him a birthday dessert with a candle. We will be back!

I loved the Blue Cheese Martini, it was delicious. My Chicken Marsala was amazing. I would've ordered the Chilean Sea Bass, but our waiter Tim suggested the Marsala because it was his favorite, great going Tim! The Sea Bass would've been $10 more, so gotta love your waiter for that. I was pleasantly surprised at how large this restaurant is because when we first got there, they tried seating us in the very back, which would've been quite lovely but there was a mistake and we were moved, which I was a little disappointed at first because it looked quite nice back there. And it was nice going through the secret passageways to get there, but we'll have to try it next time. This was our first time there, and we will definitely be back, especially since Frank, the manager was there, and we had recognized him from Talia's, a restaurant we use to frequent 18 years ago. We loved that restaurant, so when we saw him there, we knew we would be satisfied in the end, which we were. Thank you Mangiamo's we'll see you real soon!

Mangiamos is one of our go to restaurants for Valentine’s Day. We went a little early this year on Wednesday instead of Friday but it was a delight; food is always good service is awesome and the ambience is wonderful.

Yes I would recommend Mangiamos to friends, but I would tell them the Sunday night special pasta menu is not very appealing .

I have been visiting this restaurant off and on over the last 25+ years.... I think their food is excellent and the service is great too but their management team and owner are not nearly as friendly as they could be. I have had two poor experiences at this restaurant with the last one just this past Saturday when celebrating a family birthday dinner. Both bathrooms were out of order with raw sewage water coming up through the bathroom drains. To top it off, I was charged $33 dollars/bottle for corkage fees. I don't know if I will be going back any time soon since they don't seem to care about their loyal customers as they should be doing in the competitive local Italian food-scene.

Server was not the level expected at this location. Very much in a rush and not engaged at all. The runner of our drinks was bothered to have to help. Would have a difficult time going back.

This is the 3rd New Year's Eve meal my wife and I have had at Mangiamo's. They always do such a great job making it feel like a special night - the decorations are festive, the staff is very attentive, the food is superb. Our fellow diners were in good spirits and we struck up conversations with several of them.
