Spaghetti and Meatball    I ate there for the first time on Saturday evening. The food and wine were delicious. I got the spaghetti and meatball. The sauce was absolutely the best I’ve ever had in a restaurant (I’m fussy on my sauce) and the meatball was huge and also one of the best I’ve had. The waitress was very nice and efficient. The 3 of us all had different desserts which were also wonderful. Will definitely go back again! – Joanne M. – April 15, 2018

Heather was exceptional     My friend and I stopped in for lunch. It was an absolutely delicious lunch. Penne with vodka sauce (with diced prosciutto) and a side of meatball.
My lunch companion Mary had pasta with pesto sauce with grilled chicken. Followed by coffee and a latte and their cannolis. Food was spectacular. Our server Heather was exceptional. We have another appointment in the area later in the month. Can’t wait to go again to try something else on their menu. We’ve already requested Heather. – Lori F, February 13, 2018

Gem    I can’t believe its taken me this long to discover this gem! I had the pasta special with penne pasta, ham and peas in a creamy sauce that was heavenly! Heather then tempted me to have the chocolate chip cannoli for dessert! The food and service were both exceptional. Thank you for a terrific lunch.– Suzanne N, April 17, 2018

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. – JomomJo, Salem CT, Feb 2018

Delicious Food, courteous service  At lunch my friend and I lingered nearly three hours over delicious soup, salad and pasta, with nary a complaint or comment from staff. Of course, it was not too crowded that day. – Tuxedomom2018, Bozrah CT, Jan 2018

Fabulous Find  We received a coupon as a birthday gift from friends for this restaurant.I made reservations online via messenger as they do not open until 4 pm on Saturdays. They responded quickly that they would be able to accommodate our group of 4. We were greeted by the staff professionally and courteously. The atmosphere was very pleasant. The waitstaff was very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Alex answered all questions with great enthusiasm. We even ordered a SPECIAL not on the regular menu – Chicken Parm!!! others had Penne Ala Vodka, Spaghetti Bolognese, and Shrimp Scampi – all were delicious!! Jason the owner/chef stopped by our table and was very engaging! We asked about them making Veal Parm and he said to call ahead a few days in advance and he will be sure to have it for us. WHAT A WIN!!! We even had desserts and coffee/cappuccino – again all delicious. I highly recommend adding this restaurant to your list. We will be back to have the Veal Parm. Oh, they also do Sunday Brunch! – Cathy L, Milford CT, Aug 2017

Excellent Restaurant Reviews | Colchester CT | Cafe Mangia Italian Restaurant

Come in with your date and enjoy our famous Cafe Mangia Martinis. The definition of a Martini is a cocktail made from Gin or Vodka and dry vermouth, typically garnished with an olive or twist of lemon. While this definition is not wrong, it is somewhat outdated. While the original Martini was made of a simple composition, they have evolved and substantially and are now mixed with various delicacies. Café Mangia is no stranger to the world of fabulous Martinis. We offer a Classic Martini through complex mixed wonders. Some of our favorites are the Delightful Lemoncello Martini, which features vodka, Lemoncello, lemon juice, and simple syrup served with a sugar rim and lemon slice. Or the Italian Job Martini, which features vanilla vodka, Cointreau, orange juice, sour mix and a splash of Grand Marnier, served with a lemon and lime slice. Whether you are in the mood for a simple classic or seeking to entertain a new experience to your martini palate Café Mangia will have something for you. Café Mangia serves Salem, CT and all surrounding CT towns. Visit our restaurant and bar located at 68 Linwood Avenue Colchester, CT or call 860-537-7707 to make your next dinner reservation. We look forward to serving you soon!
