I have something to share with you.
I love Italian food. I grew up in the Northeast and the hardest decision was where to go to eat and then what to order. The food was amazing. Now that I live in Texas, we have great restaurants here but I struggle finding a great dish of pasta and the perfect parmigiana. Imagine my surprise when my father-in-law told me he found a new spot that was pretty good(and FYI, he grew up in NY).
Mangiamo. It’s in the shopping center on the southwest corner of 635 and Preston Road. The menu is pretty straightforward and the night we dined, they had a few specials. Plus they do half orders of pasta for kids which is the perfect option for us.
They do not have a liquor license so I think they encourage you to BYOB. They started us with a toasted bread and then we made some choices. I ordered the eggplant florentine, my husband ordered the baked ziti with meat sauce, my father-in-law had the veal parmigiana and my daughter had the tortellini. No room for dessert as the portions were a good size but I think they had cannoli, something I cannot find very often in Dallas.
I I enjoyed my meal. And I will be back again….plus I was happy to see that on the night we went, it was packed with people waiting. I guess others have found it to be good too! But if you have a favorite spot, PLEASE SHARE IT WITH ME!
