Pizza all the way.

Bombay has been steadily upgrading its pizza scene over the past several years. As a sucker for good pizza, I believe pizza can never be bad. It's either great or good. As one of the kickstarters of Bombay's pizza revolution, Mangii has been my staple for the area for as long as I can remember. Although the quality is a tad better at Mia next door, Mangii certainly takes on in terms of prices and quantity.

It's aptly located across the lake right by JVLR, while the traffic rarely affects the ambiance of both, the al fresco and A/C sections. You are always greeted and served well and prompt. Between this and the only surviving other outlet at Khar, this one beats the Khar one by a mile and a half in terms of everything - ambiance, service and quality of food. Pizzas are crisp, full of flavor, ample sauce and toppings of whichever you choose from. So the difference lies with the other items. Their breakfast fare is decent enough. Benedict made well, pancakes slightly dense but passable.

Appetizers that are worth your while: Cajun chicken, Baked Jalapenos, Poppers and Crostinis. Pastas: Siciliano, Orecchiette Pesto (one of the best I have had), Spinach Ravioli (dad loved it as well). The Fricassee crepe and Pollo Lombardy are the two best mains I have had here. All this with wine pairings make for an excellent meal.

Certainly enough, there are pizzerias popping all around the city. But I can safely place Mangii among the pioneers in the city and they will remain that way.

Great ambiance and good for large groups to dine

Went there for a team meeting once, they have a wide variety of pizza's. All of them are good. Tasted quite a few being part of the team. Their Bruschetta is also equally good. The prices are a little on the higher side but the food was worth it when we went. So wouldn't complain about that as long as I had a good time.

Italian food lovers try this

This place serves good Italian food along with great ambiance and service on display at all times. Pizzas and Pastas are excellent, even made better with the fact that the sauces and crusts can be personalized as per one's taste!

Mushroom soup is also worth trying. One of my friends loved the Jalapeno Popper balls and another one loved Falafel, so you can try those too!

Relish dinner experience

It is one of the most famous Italian joints in Mumbai. Extremely pleasant indoor and outdoor seating. They are located very very close from JVLR towards Hirandan. I feel like home at this restaurant.
They serve real good pizzas, I really like their appetisers. My favourite is Verdure and amongst non-veg pizzas, Frutti Di Mare (Prawns and Crab meat.) They have a good concept of small plates so even if you are feeling full, you can definitely try these out. The Risotto and the pasta are awesome. Other dishes like the penne arabiata and ravioli are also mouth watering dishes.
Although it's a little heavy on the pocket. It's worth every cent. This place gets crowded in the evening. I would recommend people to visit this place even with the service tax thing. I have covered all places in Powai and this one is right at the top of the list.

Thin crust pizzas galore

You love pizzas the authentic way and this is a place you can’t miss. Love their wood oven pizzas. Have kept up their quality even with competition next door from Mia Cucina (a very worthy competitor). Even salads are made very thoughtfully. Their interiors have started to show their age a little though and begun to show the wear and tear. Should replace it as it’s an eye sore.

Decent.. But overpriced

I am a huge fan of Italian food, which took us to Cafe Mangii last evening for dinner. The ambience was lovely, dim not the ideal ambience for my in laws... But nevertheless they loved it.. With the big screen playing the match, it kept my Father-in-law entertained. The staff is very courteous and chivalrous, more importantly.. They we re patient since they saw my husband was running late and were very helpful with the menu too. The food however, does not score a perfect 10. We started with the Calzone Carneltini, which was divine. CM has lived up to the reputation of having one of the best pizzas in town. We followed this up with the mushroom risotto which was tasty, but the consistency of the risotto was very thick. The Spaghetti in vodka cream sauce was simply brilliant and scored even above the pizza. The most disastrous dish followed the stuffed chicken with ricotta, the chicken was dry and overdone and stuffing completely cold. The overall dish lacked any flavour except for the garlic mashed potatoes. Thank God we followed it with desserts - Philadelphia cheesecake - again one o the best we've tried in the city and the simply indulgent tiramisu.. CM may have disappointed on the stuffed chicken but their desserts won my heart back :)

Not very impressive- Service & Environment

It was a planned Saturday night diner for me & my wife, we expected a good time will be spent in Mangi over diner. Sadly, our expectations were turned down. Service needs to be improved a lot... there is a shear lack of coordination between your servers & bar tender. Bar tender acts really cool in front of guests, but is unaware about the products on menu. The ambiance was very dull, music was too low & we were irritated by the noise of other guests... a similar experience that you get in any cheap thali restaurant. Salads are overpriced... Pizzas are the only thing worth complimenting.

Worth every penny!

Was looking something near to Powai to celebrate my Birthday after a working day. We mutually decided to head here after hearing so much about it. Being a Tuesday, it was well occupied by the time we got there by 8:30. It has both indoor and outdoor seating. We wanted some fresh air, and decided to sit outside. The ambiance and seating are very cozy and lovable. We could friends hanging out and at the same time families coming for dinner. The staff is courteous and eager to serve. The atmosphere is something which will make you come back here. Also the food!! We started by ordering a Mezze Platter for 2 with drinks. Mezze platter consist of 6 grilled pita breads and falafel with hummus, harrisa, labneh, taboulleh, olives and bell peppers. This was something I relished. Absolutely lip smacking. Do try this . For drinks we ordered a mocktail - Energy Sunrise which was a mix of red bull, orange juice, strawberry and pineapple. (pic attached ) . Refreshing. Next we ordered the Classic Cheese fondue, which came with croutons and sorted veggies (babycorn, bell peppers, zucchini , etc) This was delightful and at the same time fills up your tummy. Enough for 2 people, this will surely make you happy. (Pic attached) For a Mezze platter, Fondue and 2 drinks we churned up Rs. 1500. Worth every penny.

Decent Italian restaurant

We visited the place on a Tuesday, and the place was packed! We had a friendly server, who was recommending dishes to us, according to our preferences. There were some dishes that needed some tweaking, and the server happily obliged. We ordered pizza, pasta, risotto and ravioli and everything was perfect. Even though we had some discount on the meal, we weren't offered a poor service. I would definitely recommend the place and I can't wait to visit again!

Undoubtedly the best restaurant in the central sub

Went there for the nth time with an old friend for lunch today. This place has not let me down ONCE. We had the cream of mushroom soup, some cheddar cheese and jalapeno starter and the vegetale pizza. All were simply lovely. The woodfried pizzas have always made me feel a little high. The desserts, pasta, breakfast menu all are beautiful.

The alcohol is quite overpriced, but really, that's a premium I'd gladly pay for the lakeside setting and the really courteous staff.

And I must mention the one thing that really makes this place so much much much better than any other restaurant in Powai & nearby - THE MUSIC. Their choice of music is always bang on. Thumbs up for that.
