Mangia e Bevi may mean “eat and drink” in Italian, but the food plays second fiddle to fun at this raucous Hell’s Kitchen restaurant, where tambourine-shaking waiters tease bachelorettes and birthday-celebrating pals, and college-age girls inevitably dance on the red-and-white-checkered tables, fueled in no small part by an affordable wine selection and an arsenal of flavored martinis. Alongside this festive, spring break atmosphere, the kitchen cranks out standard, super-filling Italian favorites that aim to please. Big-portioned pastas like the pink-toned and slightly sweet penne alla vodka back up entrée classics like tender pollo alla caprese, sautéed chicken breast layered with mounds of melted mozzarella and sliced tomato. Tasty, thin-crust brick oven pizzas make a good choice for lunch, before the after-dark rowdiness commences, although you may still hear someone singing along with the Dean Martin soundtrack.Recommended Dishes
