Mangiamo from its front white-table cloth, formal-looking dining area that you can see from the street almost doesn’t match the whole Manhattan Beach vibe. The front dinning room almost looks too fancy and stuffy to be in MB.

Don’t let that fool you – they have an incredibly awesome, wine-cellar feel dining area in the back. This dining area is a lot more mellow and quiet, in perfectly-lit booths against a brick wall backdrop, this is the spot for intimate dinner parties. I don’t think you can request this room unfortunately, seating here is kind of luck of the draw (although begging might work).

They have an extensive Italian menu, on the pricier side, so definitely save this place for a special occasion. The food is really good (NY steak, veal piccata were good) and an espresso chocolate soufflé, affogato, or blueberry crème brulee as their stand-out items for dessert.

Dress fancy!
