At this zesty little Italian spot off Hartz Avenue, we almost guarantee you’ll run into old friends, whether sitting in the bustling interior or soaking up the sun outside. Definitely try the restaurant’s signature—now legendary—house-made, hand-rolled gnocchi smothered in Gorgonzola cream or made to order with any of Mangia Mi’s simmered-with-love pasta sauces. Depending on the season, the bruschetta comes with either unforgettably delicious bright green fava bean purée or savory oven-roasted tomato. Other memorable dishes include the steamed clams in a garlic-lemon butter sauce and a light beet salad with goat cheese and Marcona almonds. You’re also in good hands with time-tested Italian classics such as chicken marsala, shrimp scampi, eggplant parmesan, and of course, pizza—all for under $22. Don’t forget about the well-priced, accessible wine list and fun cocktails. Lunch Fri.–Sun., dinner daily.
