Hidden in the corners of King-East, Mangia and Bevi serves up quality eats from a genuine Italian Kitchen. When you walk in, the restaurant’s rustic interior and vibrant staff gives a homey feel. Their patio is perfect for lunch on a Saturday afternoon or quiet weekday evening.
To start, a secret recipe cultivated by Raja, their Pizza Master, brings together tomato sauce, mozerella, black olives, and spicy sopressata for an airy and crispy Siciliana pizza ($16). They say Mangia and Bevi are best known for their pizza, and there is a really good reason for that.
The Coniglio ($18), the pasta of the day, has fresh cherry tomatoes, tender rabbit that covers perfectly cooked el-dente pasta. The Commendatore ($18) has sausage, smoked provolone, spinach, leeks in a pistachio cream sauce.
Don’t forget to save room for their dessert like the tiramisu, canoli, panacotta, and semifreddo. The tiramisu, our favourite, is drunk with proper amounts of alcohol and espresso soaked at the bottom.
