Had a family get together with 10 people. All found entree's they enjoyed and the total bill was reasonable. Especially like the spaghetti and meatballs. Service was OK but not great.

My husband and I go to Mangia about once a month. It is close-by but better yet...the food is fresh and awesome. The atmosphere in the bar area can be very romantic. The regular dining room is more for families of parties.

The food and service were excellent. It's hard to find carbonara these days and even harder to find good carbonara! :) They delivered an excellent plate of it. In addition, the side salad and bread were very good. The wife liked her food as well...More

All food not brought out at same time. Usually other wait staff helps when serving a large table. 10 guests including children. Children were fed first , which was OK , but it was 10 - 15 minutes before any more food was brought out....More

Had Mangia delivered for our post game meal against WMU. The delivery was on time and the food was delicious! I enjoyed a custom pizza with pepperoni and black olive, which I will for sure be ordering on our next trip back to Kalamazoo.

Ths is a gem of a restaurant. While the décor is standard arched alcoves, the arches are fashioned of real brick. And, yes, the table cloths are predictably red and white stripes. The food, however, is far from ordinary. My favorite has been the lemon...More

Mangia Pizza & Pasta Co. is yet another chapter in a family tradition in restaurants that began when Amo and Rose Scotese opened La Cantina in Paw Paw in 1936. Their grandson Emilio Dacoba and his wife Maria, currently part owners of La Cantina with other family members, opened their own restaurant, Mangia, Mangia, in 2008 in downtown Kalamazoo. The downtown restaurant features traditional Italian dining with many of the recipes passed down from Nonna Rosa, as Emilio calls his grandmother. Its name is the admonition of every Italian grandmother to family and friends at her dining table to "Eat, eat!" Emilio and Maria, however, thought the west side of Kalamazoo was prime for a casual, family restaurant. When the opportunity came in the fall of 2012 to purchase the Mi Ranchito restaurant building on 9th Street, Mangia Pizza & Pasta was born. The rustic, stucco interior of the former Mexican restaurant fell right in line with their plans to transform it into an Italian style cantina with a casual atmosphere. To go along with the casual atmosphere, MP&P has a beautiful outdoor patio off the bar. We offer casual Italian and American family-style dining in a comfortable setting, but with a taste and flair you wouldn't expect to find in your typical neighborhood restaurant. We said MP&P would be comfortable, not typical.
