If you're looking for authentic Italian cuisine and an acceptable wine list, skip Cafe Mangia! I brought 2 Italian clients her for dinner ... what a mistake! The food is average at best and the wine list is pitiful. But the waters/waitresses/servers are even worse!...More

This place is terrible! Slow service, below average food, and above average prices. If you're looking for authentic Italian food,don't go here. The wine list is awful and the wines are pricey. And the food ... well it'sworse than the wine selection.

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.
