 ‘Great Spot to Meet

“We were meeting friends and decided to give Cafe Mangia a try. We were very pleased. It was a Tuesday and not very busy. We enjoyed our table on the porch. I had the grilled vegetable wrap and it was very good, warm sauteed vegetables and ricotta cheese. My friends had the pasta of the day and salads. We were all happy with our choices and would return without question. A great find. ” – tripadvisor review

‘A great night

“We love going to Cafe Mangia! I had a risotto stuffed pepper as an appetizer that was so delicious. It was huge too. I had pasta for dinner that was great and I wound up bringing most of it home because i filled up on my appetizer, salad and saved room for dessert which were yummy cannolis. The staff was wonderfully attentive and friendly. We’ll be back for sure.” – tripadvisor review
