Mangia Mangia is a family-owned, full-service Italian restaurant and wine bar, located on the downtown Kalamazoo Mall. The restaurant is part of the La Cantina Family of restaurants – which is celebrates its 75th year in business in 2011. We strongly believe in the creation of authentic Italian dishes, using the best ingredients and family recipes which have been passed down over the generations. Our Chef uses farm-direct, locally-grown fresh produce and through alliances with local farmers, sources high-quality home-grown foods for the recipes. “Little Italy” – a small, semi-private room, is best suited for 8-10 people and is very popular for birthday celebrations. The private Rockwell banquet room has a capacity of 60 people and is ideal for business/media presentations, rehearsal dinners, family reunions and wedding receptions. An outdoor patio area seats 20 people and is a popular area for people to dine and “people watch”. Outdoor grilling is provided for lunch service, weather permitting, in the summer months. Our overall capacity is 120 people, making us ideal for small or large groups. We also provide full-service catering, for both formal and informal occasions. Mangia Mangia participates in the downtown Kalamazoo summer festivals and is famous for its cheesecake on a stick. We also collaborate with downtown theatres to offer special dinner/theatre packages.
