Mangia is a very solid pizzeria with very good pizzas and service. There's no skimping on toppings or the size of their salads. They can accommodate large parties.

I really like the pizza at Mangia --- better than any other pizza in the area if/when they get the order right. But there have been enough negative experiences with the place that I cannot go back any more. My last visit was "to go," and I decided I had to go and never come back. 1. I asked for... More

Used a Groupon and really glad I did. We've lived in the area for almost 40 years and hadn't tried it. Very good food, definitely family friendly, very good service and very, very tasty food.
