Starting as an Italian pasta shop and delicatessen in 1983, Mangia Italiano in St Louis has evolved into a full-service Italian restaurant currently owned and operated by former patron Chef James Bonsanti. The evolution of Mangia Italiano included not only a complete revamping of the brick-and-mortar portion of the restaurant, but also a complete overhaul of the current menu. Patrons can now enjoy a number of classic Italian dishes that are accented with decadent sauces, delicious seafood, and wild game, with a menu that is complemented by signature cocktails and local draft beers.
