Really enjoyed this spot last winter and were looking forward to the same experience.
Although food was still good,we noticed prices had gone up.the wait staff were very green
compared to last year and the entertainment was weak.It consisted of a Mexican fellow singing along to taped music.The place was empty expect for a few folks who appeared to be friends of the entertainer.
Last year the joint was a happening spot with a great trio who seemed o have a solid following.
I read the there was new management in place but they had better do something quick or We may not see them next year.

Not sure of the details, but there has been a management/ownership change which has resulted in some problems at this formerly excellent restaurant.

On the plus side, the menu hasn't changed, and the food is still pretty good. However, the former attentive and professional wait staff has been replaced with some very young and inexperienced guys who frankly seemed lost. The chef is now also on the heavy-handed side with sauces -- my shrimp with pasta was absolutely swimming in a slightly too-spicy sauce, and at dessert you couldn't even see the crepes under the cajeta.

We also missed the emphasis on Mexican wines that the previous manager was so passionate about - as far as we could tell, there are no longer any Mexican wines served.

We hope that the new manager/owner can whip this place back into shape, but we'll keep a careful eye on the reviews before going back.

This was my second time to Ixtapa and I couldn't wait to go back to Che Mangiamo. The view and the ambiance are as amazing as ever. However, although I don't know all the details, it has definitely changed since last year. The food is still very good, but the service was poor...we were the only table for the better part of our meal, and we had very little attention. The other big change is the prices have gone way up. This used to be one of the more affordable restaurants at the Marina, but now it is very pricey. Especially the beverages. Overall, although the food is good and the atmosphere is amazing, we likely won't put this place that high on our priority list next time.

Food was very good and the prices were very reasonable. Upstairs location so you will need to climb stairs. I didn't see another way up. The evening we ate there only a few tables were taken.
We were charged for a bottle of wine instead of a glass. I trust this was just a human error.
