Happy Hour Reviews

Cozy, comfy, inexpensive local treasure

We’ve never had a bad meal at Cafe Mangia, and we’ve eaten here several dozen times over the last eight years. Now that Mangia has a Happy Hour menu, we’ll be here more often. My spinach salad serving was more than generous, the three eggplant rollatini were delicious, and my glass of happy hour chianti was excellent. My wife had a small spinach salad, a shrimp cocktail, and a beer. Every food and drink item earned an A, as did our cheery, efficient waitress. The total bill was less than what we’d spend at the Taste of Hartford–and close to home!

Our restaurant of choice in the area

Have had dinner there on several occasions and always found the food excellent and the service above par. Staff works hard and maintains a friendly and personal attitude. Their wine paring experiences are great (with entertainment). Bar area small, but cozy, great for a drink and appetizer “Happy Hour” before dinner. Either as a couple or with friends, Café Mangia is the best!
