    I have eaten here several times prior to being diagnosed with Celiac and it was fantastic. Post-Celiac diagnosis, not so much. First, they boil the pasta in the same water as the gluten pasta UNLESS you SPECIFICALLY tell them you have Celiac. If you only say you have an allergy, they boil it in the same water. Secondly, their homemade gluten free pasta is made in the same machine as the gluten pasta and the machine is NOT cleaned in between batches. I do NOT recommend this place for gluten free pasta if you have Celiac. It's not safe.

    We had a great dinner at Mangia Mangia over the weekend. Both my husband and I are gluten free. My husband also has a corn allergy and I have a soy allergy. When we ordered and explained we had food allergies, our server asked us if we were Celiac (which I am). What a refreshing question to ask a patron in a restaurant! Thank you very much, Mangia Mangia. You showed us you know what Gluten Free really is. Magnificent customer service and the meal was superb!

    Lots of options, they make the pasta and sauces from scratch and make sure to cook your pasta separately if you let them know you have an allergy/celiacs. The food has always been amazing every time we've gone. The most GF pasta and sauce options in Key West, the other past places only have essentially one option. Worth the visit!

    I have super severe celiac disease and react to anything that has more than 10 ppm of gluten, also incredibly sensitive to cross-contamination. I have NEVER gotten sick eating here. Amazing certified gluten free pasta. Even gluten free alfredo! They cook my pasta in a new pot of water and everything. Love this place. No desserts, sadly.

    Delicious - all the sauces were GF and the zoodles (zucchini noodles) were yummy too. No GF bread option though.

    They have 2 gf pastas (rice or quinoa spaghetti) and all of their sauces are gf. My husband had rice pasta with alfredo and loved it. I had rice pasta with a creamy tomato sauce - delicious! We also had a yummy salad. The waitress asked if we had celiac disease and said since we do, they would cook the pasta in "clean" pasta water. We loved this place, the atmosphere was perfect, we sat in the tropical garden and our waitress was attentive. Most importantly we didn't get sick!

    When I called and spoke to a manager, she said that they make a gluten-free pasta in the kitchen with all the other pasta. She said that it is made before the gluten pastas. But as a celiac disease suffer, we all know that gluten and pasta is very sticky and very hard to clean so to be honest anyone in their right mind that Severson celiac disease wouldn't go here because we know that people are lazy and will not clean the equipment properly in order to protect people who suffer from allergies from gluten. Therefore, eat at your own risk. I did not eat here but I will not be here.
