Mangia Bene
This image is not of the venue. Awaiting image from venue.

A trattoria-style Italian restaurant and pizzeria, just a couple of minutes from Angel tube station. There's a Mediterranean feel to the room, with exposed brickwork, an open-plan kitchen and images of the homeland adorning the walls. Al fresco seating should prove popular come summertime. 

There's an emphasis on authenticity here, with the menu ranging from bruschetta, focaccia and antipasto misto to spaghetti alla carbonara, seafood linguine, vitello alla Milanese and gambero alla diavolo - king prawns cooked in white wine, garlic and chilli, served with rice. A range of pizza - including calzone - do brisk business.

The wine list focuses on bottles from Italy, with whites, reds and rosés alongside a range of prosecco. Keep an eye out for set menus and special offers, too.

The food at Mangia Bene is delicious and the staff members are always quick and kind. I regularly go for dinner or lunch. It's a real gem in Angel. I recommend the veal! And their pasta sauce is wonderful!


Fairly priced and one of the not-so-many places open on a Sunday afternoon in the area, Mangia Bene is a good option, mainly if don’t want Indian or Vietnamese. It’s not the best Italian food you’ll ever eat, but it’s nice: we all ordered different dishes and they’re all reasonably tasty and good sized. My only real complain was the game on TV that was quite loud – but I don’t know how frequently this happens, and actually some people were (also loudly) quite happy to be watching the game...
