Mangia is now closed. We always thought the food was mediocre at best and the service was dreadful. For an Italian restaraunt, they did not even make any fresh pasta. The best part was the lovely outdoor seating. A new place- Tilly's opened and it...More

For $8 you can get a filling lunch with drink and dessert included! They guarantee that you will be able to be out in 45 min., if this is your "lunch hour!"Everything tasted really fresh, too. I will be going back

A very nice restaurant. Food is very good and large portions. The appetizers are great! Sometimes my wife and I just get a couple each for dinner. Good craft beer on tap at the bar and a good selection of wines.

Visiting my niece at Randolph College. I took her next door to Mangia for dinner and was pleasantly surprised. The prices are a little high, but the food was very good.

Located in the heart of one of the oldest neighborhoods in the country, Mangia is the cornerstone of historic Rivermont Avenue. The rustic Italian fare, extensive wine list, local artwork and convivial setting inspire a dining experience that is at once luscious and relaxed while allowing a family style feast. People watch on the Café, have an intimate dinner in the candle lit interior or lounge to the mellow live acoustics in the bar. Our chalkboard changes daily with local and organic specials or Italian classics. We invite you in as family; to share the very best we have to offer, on your terms.
