Small location seats only about 20 guests; Chef is half owner and your server owns the other half; every bite you are served is hand made on site; Buono Mangia will not disappoint. Limited menu but everything is delicious and fairly priced. The finest, if not the only, real Italian food in Charlottetown.

Excellent meal, good service. An unassuming restaurant that surprises one.the outside is very basic and a little off putting. Decor is not their best asset, however the food was excellent, the service good. A little more time spent on the appearance would certainly help this restaurant.

Wow! You can taste the made by hand with heart and soul ! What a food experience ! Perfect pasta and the sauces are rich and flavourful. The atmosphere is homey and down to earth. The location is hidden between the doors of other restaurants, and looks very inconspicuous, but worth exploring. Small seating inside so I highly recommend a... More

Buono Mangia was top on my list of where to eat. We were happy to dine there our last night and it was delicious. The homemade pasta is delicate; the servings were adequate, even for my husband who eats with gusto. One of the owners was the only server, she was busy and terrific! They are moving location at some... More

Buono Mangia is a gem of a place. My husband took me there on our first date four years ago and it's been our favorite spot since. It's a very unassuming spot from the outside - and inside is tiny as well, but the food is amazing. Authentic pasta - I've never had anything like it. The service is wonderful.... More

Was recommended from a co-worker and I am very happy I went. Went for lunch and the menus and portions are different from dinner, as a warning. Portions were perfect for lunch! Food was unreal and the dessert was fantastic! It is a bit out of my price range to be a regular, but I will be back!

My husband and I had heard great things about Buono Mangia but hadn't had a chance to try it. On the spur of the moment on Saturday night we popped in. It had been completely booked but because of a last minute cancellation we lucked in. the food, service and atmosphere lived up to their reputation.

This is a tiny spot on Kent Street near the center of the city. Several friends claim it is their favorite restaurant in Charlottetown. It is smaller than many private kitchens but what it lacks in size it makes u for in service and food. The size is intimate and cosy and the food very good. It is mainly pastas.... More
