Mangia Bene Restaurant Review

: Mangia Bene, which means “eat well” in Italian, serves cuisine based on authentic family recipes in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Starters run from fried calamari and sausage-stuffed mushrooms to salads like the pear and Gorgonzola topped with caramelized walnuts. Dinnertime features a broad selection of pizzas and pastas, as well as classic entrées such as chicken Marsala and shrimp scampi. The wine list features a mix of Italian and Californian labels, and there is a serviceable assortment of martinis. Large parties should reserve tables in advance.
