Would give it 20 stars if I could. The food AND service were outstanding! Mangia is a celiac’s dream come true- everything but short rib lasagna can be gf. Our waitress had celiac sooo they get it!!! We had the meatball appetizer, fried grilled cheese, short rib bolognese and chicken parm. Everything was delicious and so fresh. A definite MUST get is the led zeppole for dessert omg it was so good. Took 2 cannolis for the road!

Gluten free food is brought out on green plates, as opposed to the white plates used for their regular items.

Everything I’ve tried has been delicious. They can make pretty much make everything GF, except the lasagna. They also have GF dessert options.

Splurge because the leftovers are just as good! Also-buy the bread to take home. They'll tell you how to freeze and such.

Four stars instead of five just because based on stellar reviews, we booked the reservation and left the payment to hold our spot without hesitation, only to find the dinner was a set menu and served family style. Separate GF plates and bread for me though. I really wanted a gluten free cannoli!!! And a private table. Couldn’t get either that night. Could have done without the singing and dancing too but that’s me not liking the attention and energy it takes to hide or explain a different physical disability on a night when all I wanted to do was feel normal and eat some yummy gluten free Italian food. That aside... The owners/chef, staff, and restaurant are all just lovely. If I’m back in the area again, I’ll definitely be going back to this place!!!

Delicious food! Had arancini, a focaccia sandwich, and donuts—all GF. The rest of my party ate non GF and also loved their food. Server was knowledgeable and answered my food handling questions before I had a chance to ask them.

We were visiting Nashville from NY. I have celiac disease and was afraid of eating places. They were wonderful here. Their plates are color coded to avoid confusion. All of their menu items can be made gluten free. It was the best meal since being diagnosed! We ate there twice! Highly recommend!

Took a chance and went for a Friday “Mangia” dinner, even though it’s family-style and my family is divided (2 omnivore, 1 GF omnivore, 1 GF vegetarian). Thank heavens we did! I’ve never been somewhere so accommodating; from GF focaccia (in 2 flavors) to incredibly perfect GF pasta (al dente!) to GF eggplant parm as a surprise veggie sub for the Secondi course of meat, we were absolutely spoiled. It’s a 3+ hour extravaganza with singing, dancing, and more food than I’ve ever eaten, and it was worth every second. The food is way better than it has to be...given the party atmosphere, it could get by with lower quality, and yet every dish was amazing. Run, don’t walk.

If I could give this place 10 stars I would. My girlfriend has celiac disease and we have fallen in love with this place. I have a difficult time believing that the entire menu can be gluten free (upon request) because it’s so good. Favorite restaurant in Nashville (and I’m NOT gluten free myself)!

While not a strictly gluten-free restaurant, you can get every single item on the menu gluten free! Focaccia, pasta, chicken and eggplant parmigiana, cannoli, etc. The food is delicious, and the menu includes so many things you cannot order anywhere else. The owner and manager are gluten-free, and the kitchen makes sure you’ll always be safe eating there.

This restaurant is such a fun experience and the manager and chef’s wife are gluten free and know exactly what people with celiac can and cannot eat. Delicious. Also they had Italian donuts for dessert (gluten-free) and i haven’t had something so delicious in a very long time!

Echoing what others have posted, the entire menu can be made gluten free. They bake their bread fresh every day; garlic and activated charcoal options. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff. Really enjoyed my meal including the desserts! So happy I tried this place. Felt safe eating here based on other reviews.

Had the most amazing dinner last night at Mangia. Went with another celiac friend and was told by the waitress and general manager that EVERYTHING can be made gluten free as the General manager and the chef’s wife both have celiac. Was blown away with how delicious everything was and they even had fried chicken parm, not grilled chicken with sauce and cheese. I will definitely be coming back next time I’m in Nashville. P.s. they use activated charcoal in all their GF doughs, so it comes out black. Strange at first but SO good

Our experience couldn't have been better. Our waitress carefully explained the menu options and told me about the dedicated fryer and prep space for gluten free food. Once my meal came (pasta with meatballs, 2 slices of bread on the side) I had a panicky moment of not trusting. It all looked so good, and the bread was soft and tender. The manager, Rachel, came over and explained things even further, told me she's Celiac, too, and eats there every day.

I'll happily update this later if I notice any ill-effects, but I really don't expect to. They were all on top of it, different color plates for my food, changing gloves to prevent cross-contamination, etc. The food was delicious and I'll definitely be going back there.

Sick as a dog-not worth it!!



4 days later I am finally back on my feet. I went to eat here because of the raving reviews on FindMeGlutenFree and the comments that stated the manager and the chef’s wife both had celiac disease. First warning sign were bread crumbs on the table right underneath my fork. Second warning sign was the manager assuring me they knew all there was to know about celiac disease and that they couldn’t control bread crumbs on the table and I shouldn’t worry because they weren’t on my plate. Shortly after eating the risotto cakes I started going down. I react within 15 minutes.

I think the saddest part of all was the complete lack of sympathy and arrogance on the staff’s part-especially the one who “supposedly” also has celiac. Had they of sat on the board of directors of the CSA and met as many celiac patients as I have they would understand that all individuals react completely differently as it is an auto immune disease. Once the poisonous lectin gets inside a person’s body, each person’s immune system attacks their own body quite differently. The chef was simply convinced that because his wife takes 4 hours for her immune system to start attacking itself, that surely mine could not start reacting within 15 Minutes. I have met patients that react almost immediately!

I left before the main course was served- in excruciating pain, completely embarrassed, and in literal tears on the drive home. My biggest take away was the terrible service. Thank God it was Friday so I didn’t miss two more sick days at work.

I have never been so humiliated or treated so poorly in all my life. The manager was just plain rude to me and literally angry that I got sick. I have never in all my life had a restaurant staff act or treat me in the manner that they did after becoming ill. It was heartbreaking.

Final takeaways- had I not of gotten sick, the food was just “ok”. Most certainly not like my 100% Italian Granny would of made it... it just wasn’t worth the risk. Every dish was bland, unbalanced in acidity and lacked overall flavor. Even the pasta was undercooked- not aldente. Eat at your own risk folks. And if you do get sick, prepare to be treated like a complete dog. Never in my life...Shame on them!
