Although we've gone through some ownership changes, we still maintain the same recipes that have made us a "most" destination for many of South Orange County's residents as well as our new and exciting monthly dishes that are sure to impress you. From the classics like our Homemade Lasagna and Penne Sonato, to our very popular salads, like the Mangia Bene Salad with Grilled Chicken and Seared Ahi Salad, as well as our monthly specials, we are confident you will have a great experience dinning with us. Come see why we've been an Orange County landmark since 1991. Bring your family to our family restaurant and experience Fresh Italian like you never have before

Mangia Bene is outstanding. The new bar is exquisite and you can't beat their happy hour from 11:30 AM to 6:30 PM! Great selection of wines, cocktails and appetizers! Chris, the owner has done a masterful job putting together a fantastic team which provides consistent excellent service and delicious food. The prices are very reasonable and the ambience is wonderful. You can't miss with Mangia Bene!

We live close by, but for whatever reason we forgot about this place. We decided to have lunch here the other day and am happy we did. We had the lasagna and it game with garlic toast slices. Big portions, so we had leftovers. Dessert is also something you might want to share.Nice atmosphere.

Yes, it's an Italian restaurant, but try the pork chops. Absolutely delicious! Of course, the pasta is good too.

We had a delightful meal and experience at Mangia Bene. The service was excellent, the atmosphere was informal but not loud and distracting.

My Mom lives near this restaurant, and I always suggest we go there for lunch. We always have the same thing - a small Caesar each, and split a wonderful veggie pizza - #23! The garlic bread they bring to the table is an extra treat! The atmosphere is friendly and just nice. Indoor and outdoor seating are both great.
