Mangia E Bevi: "Italians Can Be Funny" Mangia E Bevi - CLOSED Tip by AliasGirl

This restaurant located in the Theatre District caters to the theatre crowd. Its a loud Italian place that keeps to its namesake ' Mangia E Bevi' - Eat and Drink! The staff ushers you in and promptly gets your party situated in ordering meals and drinks.

Then while you are waiting the show starts - the waiters bring out tambourines and maracas and other noisy instruments to get the crowd riled up. Well folks - it works. By the time your food and drinks arrived you've already laughed a million times.

You may be required to sing a song or two, brush up on your O Solo Mio and That's Amore! You may also be required to dance around etc. You should be upbeat and in good spirits for this place or pay the consequeneces!

Food is okay - pastas and regular Italain fare but hey who rememebers that anyway with all the fun you just had!

Now you are off to a Broadway show - Enjoy!
