Mangia Mangia! is one of my very favorite pasta places! They do a fantastic job of flavorful combinations of fresh homemade pasta, seafood and veggies! They have the classics like Fettuccine Alfredo, Spaghetti Carbonara and Linguini with White Clam Sauce as well as my favorite dish Sea Scallops with Spinach Fettuccine in a pesto cream sauce topped with chopped walnuts! My Mom’s favorite dish there is the jumbo Rigatoni with Key West Pink Shrimp tossed in olive oil, garlic and pancetta with some fresh arugula tossed in for good measure!
You can sit inside the little cafe style seating area or outside in the garden depending on your preference.
They don’t take reservations so it’s best to try to come before sunset to avoid a wait.
All of the Waitresses have been there forever so be sure to tell Sonya and Corinne hello from Amber and Iris!Amber, Key West!
Mangia Mangia is famous not only for their fresh homemade pasta, but also for creating a nourishing meal that envelops you by sight, smell and taste. Choose from spagettini topped with green-lipped New Zealand mussels in a garlicky marinara sauce, Linguine with clams in shallot, white wine, garlic and butter broth, and a delicious variety of other pasta dishes. Dig into the simple, full flavors while you keep one eye on the locals walking their dogs, meeting on the corner to swap stories of the day, or chaining up their bikes to come inside and join you.
Mangia Mangia is on the corner of Southard and Margaret right smack dab in the heart of the neighborhood Old Town, Key West.
