Cafe Mangia's granite tabletops serve as diners' culinary pedestals, holding dinner, lunch, brunch dishes crafted with local produce, cheeses, and wines. After making a reservation, patrons may spend an evening romantically chasing mouthfuls of spinach-stuffed baby bella mushrooms ($8.95) with tender slivers off of a freshly grilled, 8-ounce salmon filet ($20.95). Grumbling bellies can also be silenced with lunchtime eats such as the chicken caesar wrap ($5.95 half, $7.95 full), loaded with grilled poultry, parmesan cheese, homemade dressing, and romaine hearts torn from the cores of weeping lettuce bunches. Nibbling on brunch plates, including Texas-style French toast ($6.95) and eggs benedict with homefries ($8.95), brightens up any Sunday morning spent in Cafe Mangia's interior dining room, outdoor wrap-around porch, or underground antigravity chamber.

Cafe Mangia

Within Cafe Mangia’s deep orange walls, servers cart around steaming plates of hearty Italian food, piled high with fresh basil and traditional recipes. In the evenings, platefuls of fresh grilled salmon or new york strip steaks grace the granite tabletops inside the softly lit dining room, or out on the wraparound porch. Chefs top steaming pastas with traditional pink vodka and white wine butter sauces, and can swap out standard noodles for whole-wheat or gluten-free ones upon request. They also warm up griddles for crepes and pancakes at Sunday brunch, and stuff grinders and sandwiches for lunch.

On certain evenings, Cafe Mangia breaks out the grape-tasting bibs for wine dinners that pair a five-course meal with complementary libations, like most sommelier-run dating services.

Customer Reviews

Mangia is a sweet secret in the quiet region between Hartford and all the casinos. I hesitate to elaborate hence it might get busier, and harder to get in. Jason is a superb waiter, even talking loudly with an elderly participant at the table - graciously done. The food is excellent and plentiful. Tends to get heavy in the creamy, buttery dishes, but I can always count on the freshness of salads with yummy additions of fresh salmon, sirloin tips or my favorite grilled shrimp. The staff and host are first class. I have been going there since it opened. The heated porch is a romantic spot, too.

Cafe Mangia is a small but very nice place, to share with friends and family. The food is very good and generous servings.
