Mangia's = Keeping Austin Weird (and full) – USE THEIR CATERING! I cannot stress that enough. They are super fast, the food is hot and delicious, they are very flexible and do not freak out when inevitable last second problems, big or small, arise. A pleasure to work with, reliable, and SO much cheaper than other catering options. I highly recommend their pastas and salads along with the pizza. If you like thin crust, they do that really well too. Thank you Mangia for your many years of keeping me full and happy! (I still have one of those little 8 oz cups that I got 20 years ago as a kid...)
Radical and Local – Yes, there are a lot of places to grab a Pizza, but who doesnt want to buy one from a huge purple Dinosaur. This conveninet location is the Only one that actually uses good quality ingrediants. No "cheese-product" here. Althought I am not a huge fan of the thick crust Chicago style (carbs) I love there thin crust pizza and heaping piles of meat and veggies. And if I am really trying to be good, their salad is always fresh and loaded with veggies, too.The staff is more than friendly and remembers my name, yep, being from a small town that kind of touch really matters to me. Get there and try it..
Yummmmm – I know Mangia is known for their deep dish and stuff crust pizzas but they make a pretty decent thin crust. The online ordering system is easy to use and allows you to basically create any pizza you can dream up. Plus they have salads, lasagna, pasta, and other dishes I didn't even know they served. Overall much better pizza than I remembered
Better than I remembered – It's been a while since I've eaten at Mangia. Had the opportunity to try it again yesterday for a work function and thought the pizza was pretty good. The salads were green and fresh and the thin crust margharita and chicken pesto pizzas were good. Their on-line ordering system is handy as well.
Great Regular Crust Pizza Too – we ordered a couple of pizzas for an office event. and I was very pleased with the pizza. i always think of Chicago Style Pizza when it comes to Mangia, and they are great at that. Little did I know that the regular crust is JUST as good. I will be back !!!
horrendous staff – They literally charged me twice on my debit card for one order.
That is STEALING.
I don't keep all my receipts or whatever so I don't know how to prove it. Plus the guy behind the counter never said a single word to me and never even looked up from the cash register. Obviously not going back.
Dont eat here if you value your taste buds. – I just finished (or trying to finish) eating this horrible abomination to the name of pizza. I could have gone to the gas station and gotten a week old hot pocket and it would have been better. I hate that this pizza has just ruined my night.
I didn't order anything complicated, just plain old cheese pizza. HORRIBLE.
Crust was pre-made pre-packaged crap. The sauce was tasteless. The cheese was mediocre at best. I felt like I was back in high school with the lunch lady serving me microwave cardboard pizza.
Overpriced, skimpy on toppings, mediocre flavor. – I ordered a three-topping stuffed medium pizza for around $24. What a waste. The size was fine (for a stuffed pizza), but it had NO FLAVOR. The sauce was dull, the cheese contributed nothing, and the toppings were almost non existent. It tasted like MY cooking! If I wanted that, I could have done it myself for a fraction of the price.
One upside is that the service over the phone was polite. This was a big step up from last time, when we actually sat down to eat and the waitress was an absolute b***h. Nevertheless, I tried them twice, and they blew it twice. I wont ever go back to Mangia.
Try the non-pizza stuff – I actually don't like Mangia's pizza (except the deep dish spinach if I am in the mood) but love their sandwiches and other menu items. Try the spinach lasagna or the pasta salad (so good!!). The sandwiches are all made with Boar's head meat and cheese and they are all really good (and huge) for the price. Overall, a great place for lunch with a group of friends.
