Lack of ambiance, cold feeling. Food was just okay. I had the Chicken Alfredo. The chicken was clearly canned chicken stirred into jar sauce. No pizzazz. Oh well, glad I didn't pay the full price which is arguably exorbitant for the quality of the food.

I made dinner reservations but when we got there we were asked to wait for a table. A few minutes later a waiter informed us that our table was sold and she couldn't notify me because she forgot to ask for my number. We decided to dine at the bar. My husband order certain beer and was given something different. Food Took a while to come out. Note: salad is not included with your dinner.

From Our Editors

In 1959, Domenic Donato ventured from his hometown of Cosenza, Italy, to California, where he opened his first Italian restaurant with recipes from his mother, Rosa, whom he considers the best cook in Italy. Donato soon opened a succession of Italian restaurants now owned and operated by his sister, brother, and sons. In 2006, Donato passed down Mangia Italiano on Third to close family friends Adam and Kathy. The pair faithfully continues to follow the recipes passed down through generations of the Donato family, as well as adding modern twists to Italian classics.

Inside the kitchens, chefs bake eggplant parmigana with ricotta and romano cheese and lightly flour and sauté veal with fresh mushrooms and marsala wine sauce. In the dining area, murals of Italian seascapes are dotted with white sails puffing in the wind and depict ancient ruins full of crumbling columns and Betamax players. When not inspecting the restaurant's art, patrons can dig into plates of housemade cannolis and tiramisu.
