In this fast-paced world where parents work multiple jobs, kids are constantly in activities, and there is little time to cook, Mangia Mi brings family back to the table. With an emphasis on authentic Italian cuisine, fresh high-quality ingredients, and culinary styling, Mangia Mi prepares traditional Italian comfort food in a contemporary bistro environment. Mangia Mi uses exceptional Italian goods to create flavors reminiscent of the many famous cafes and trattorias of Italy. To compliment our menu, we have an extensive wine and beer list which completes the Mangia Mi experience.
In addition to dining in our open kitchen restaurant, Mangia Mi also offers take-out so you can enjoy a bit of Italy in your home. Whether serving a party of 2 or 100, Mangia Mi makes this experience a seamless trip from our kitchen to your table.
"Food and wine have always been a huge part of my life. I spent almost every Sunday enjoying the richness of family and the delicious cuisine of the 'old country'. My nana would spend all day cooking, and one by one everyone would end up in the kitchen. Often, neighbors would smell the aroma of our Italian food and the next thing you know, they would join the festivities. There was always a houseful of people and enough food and wine to feed anyone who might drop by." Peter is a graduate of the Italian Culinary Academy based in New York City & Parma, Italy. His family has been a part of the food and wine industry for over a hundred years. He continues the rich traditions of his heritage with the authentic food and wine served at Mangia Mi.
