MANGIA & BEVI [Italian for eat & drink] it is not just the name but also the simple philosophy of this casual Italian eatery located in Toronto King East Design District, also known as Old Toronto.

 

Keeping with the original and simple Italian idea of “eating & drinking”, this is how we do things here at M&B.  Because this is how the founder Eleonora Caldato has grown up in northern Italy, the town of Treviso (also known as Little Venice), gorgeous bourgeois city known for amazing food and hospitality [risotto, radicchio, Tiramisu’ to name a few].

 

Our loft space is cozy-welcoming, and the amazing smell of food is our signature BENVENUTO (welcome).   Simple, super-fresh and perfectly prepared original Italian dishes to satisfy everyone’s taste.   The fresh pasta is made near St. Lawrence Market and our MORETTI pizza oven dishes out perfection on a plate.  To us, it doesn’t matter if you eat a sandwich or a three course meal, we will always make sure that it is done right, same as Eleonora’s mamma would have prepared it as, when you dine with us, you are part of our “famiglia”.
