Our first time experiencing Mangiami’s Restaurant. This is excellent Italian food. Being Italian ourselves, I always make my own sauce, meatballs and sausage. So both my husband and I tried this simple dish. Excellent!! Very much like sitting in your own kitchen with a plate of pasta. Service was friendly and music was very enjoyable. Thank you so much. We will definitely be back to try other dishes!

This is a great place! I moved to the area about a year ago and this was my first chance to go to Mangiami. I was a little hesitant because I had read some so-so reviews about slow service. That was not our experience at all. The pace was perfect, we had a great time and the food was excellent.

Excellent service, food was great (lobster ravioli - Valentine's weekend special), in a charming little restaurant. Wine list is short but nice selection. Very enjoyable dining experience. Probably our fifth visit and the food and service are always stellar.

I think this is the best local restaurant in Jefferson County. Great food. Always friendly. Covid has done a number everywhere. We try to get there whenever we can and when it got bad we got takeout and bought gift cards. Love this place and chef/owner Eric!

Love going to Magiami’s! Great atmosphere, very relaxing! Sam is an excellent waiter! It is so nice to have the chef come out and see how everything is. We should have said something about the steak…this was the second time someone I was with had the steak, and it was a little tough and chewy. Otherwise everything else was super!

Every category rates 10! Having traveled to Italy many times and taken many cooking classes while there, I can say without a doubt our meal at Mangiami's would rival any restaurant in Italy. This is truly a gem for fine dining.

To start with our server Sam was great and so efficient without being pushy. Our caeser salad was the best not drenched in dressing. My sister from D.C. was with us and she travels for her job so fines out often and she is still raving about the food. Well done!!

Our dining experience was very nice. We had to wait a little bit for our server to get to our table. Sam, was busy and did acknowledge us right away though. Check your Hendricks gin, it just didn't taste right, at all. The food was delicious!! Our bottle of wine was very good. We thought having some olive oil with our bread would have made it better. Sam was friendly and very helpful with our menu choices. It was nice to talk to chef and owner Eric!! Thank you for a wonderful dining experience Eric.

Food was good and well presented but personally we are used to more robust herbal seasoning . It seemed less seasoned than we are used to in italian cuisine, but that is a very personal preference. I would recommend it to friends and would go back there again.

We had a nice time. Concerning was the waiter telling us "they don't want walk-ins anymore, just reservations". We saw 2 couples come in and well, the one seemed to be pushed away as they didn't have a reservation. We were like ok. Then afterwards we went across the street as our friends own a restaurant/bar. They said they don't want anyone to come unless there are reservations. Just thought in a small town where everyone is struggling that didn't make any sense.

It is wonderful knowing Mangiami is opened again , I enjoy having a romantic spot to dine . The Menu is small , but it has a nice variety of traditional Italian dishes and a selection that are unique to this restaurant. I like the nightly dishes not on the menu. The service is good , not exceptional , that is do to the staff being very small , to keep costs down , and I understand that reason. ( Especially with Covid still being an issue) It does need a fresh coat of paint outside and a few fixes . However the overall experience is lovely . Good luck to this little gem

Haven’t been to Mangiami for a long time. The pasta rags were super yummy as usual but the bread was not good. It was dry and tasted old and just served with oil. Pepper flakes and/or Parmesan cheese would be a good addition. My wedge salad also had a “weird” taste to it. The drinks were good and it’s nice that Eric comes out and checks in on diners.
