“We aim to offer at Manga what we enjoy the most when we go out to eat: being in a cozy, casual e relaxed environment where the food is taken very seriously.

Manga is, above all else, a family restaurant, conceived and dedicated to the lovers of good food. The tasting menu is undoubtedly the restaurant’s protagonist, but we make sure to offer other more casual approaches to food, which we are equally fond of. Manga’s cuisine tries to explore in a creative manner the best products available, always respecting seasonality. We produce as much as possible ourselves at Manga, from the breads and ice creams to our own charcuterie, which translates in a extremely personal cuisine.
