Sure, the recipes are from scratch, but so is the restaurant. Owner Peter Cedolini has created a stylish and lively gathering place from a vacant dusty space, bringing Pleasanton its most contemporary dining experience in a decade. Cedolini opened the original Mangia Mi in Danville in 2008, as a pick-up-and-go deli-café, and has been winning hearts and palates ever since. The menu veers from sophisticated to homey (not unlike the cozy/industrial atmosphere), offering rich Northern Italian favorites: There are plenty of buttery and creamy dishes. The pasta has bite (get the colossal shrimp), the appetizers are big and bold (Burrata with prosciutto), and the entrées—check out the daily fish special—have soul. Great wine list. Lunch and dinner daily.
