A small shop - advertises as a gelateria - but from the street it is hard to tell what to expect. They use Lavazza coffee - which is the best. The young women serving do not appear to have Italian heritage but they turn out a great espresso. Bonuses: the lunch time pizzas are very good - thin crust, interesting... More

Grazie! Thanks so much for the very nice review. I just wanted to correct when we are open. We are open for breakfast and lunch only until the summer, when we will be open for Happy Hour and dinner for 3 or 4 nights a week. Also, not all movies are black and white. But they are typically older Italian... More

This is a nice little cafe with walk up service close to the state capitol. I visited on Feb 20. It was afternoon when we visited and the place was about three quarters full but the staff seemed flustered. I ordered the Portobello Mushroom with Pomodoro sauce and spaghetti. I wanted penne but they were out and I was told... More

kcloudview, Owner at mangiamo pronto!, responded to this review

I am very sorry. This was a simple misunderstanding. The person who took your order understood that you did not want anything on the pasta except for the pomodoro sauce. So she didn't mention upfront that we were out of mushrooms, because she didn't think you wanted them. It wasn't until the food was delivered to your table that that... More

This cafe, open usually for breakfast and lunch, held a special Christmas Eve dinner. 3 main Italian dishes to choose from with appetizers and sides. The food was absolutely delicious (I had a pesto pasta with honey smoked salmon---yummm). The desserts were equally as wonderful. It's a small cozy place right near the square (free parking nearby) so it was... More

Great latte with a kick and soup and panini just hit the spot. Away from the touristy Square and well worth a visit for lunch or coffee

Great stop for dessert and chatting. The outdoor patio made a nice place to sit and enjoy the surroundings. Friendly service and yummy gelato! Be sure to get the waffle cone!

On a hot Sunday afternoon (12 Jun 2016), my wife and I stopped here for a cool treat after having walked from downtown to the Capitol Building and back toward downtown. We really enjoyed the excellent sorbet and gelato. We sat outside at a bistro-style table beneath a shady tree. A fun sidewalk cafe at which to enjoy a break.

The location is great and the little outside dining area is pretty. They were quite accommodating with a substitution, but it took a long time to be served, the food was not warm, and the portions were meager (my sausage appeared to be a chopped up half of a sausage). Coffee was excellent. I ate there once, charged it on... More

I don't know what happened with the credit card. The person at the cash register may have accidentally done something incorrect. I do not believe it will be charged twice. Please call me, Kathy, at the restaurant and they can give you my home phone number and we can resolve this without a dispute. If I have more information about... More
