For my birthday we had a family style lunch at Mangia Buff 9/24/16. It was all very delicious - gourmet - and enjoyed by all! We had family style dishes of lasagna, ravioli, and chicken Marsala. For starters we helped ourselves to a wonderful soup and salad bar - even had roasted coconut to sprinkle on our salads. Kevin is... More

This restaurant is closing soon. I only ate here once but the food was good. It's upstairs in the old schoolhouse building.

We ate here on a Friday night and were the only ones in the dining room. Two couples were in the lounge area. I don't know why there was so few patrons because the food was good, save for the salad bar that was a little odd. The dining room was nicely done and we sat at the high tables... More

Apparently that is what the restaurant's name translates to in Italian! On a "beat the Inland heat" weekend get-away with half the rest of Southern Oregon, I found myself in Gold Beach for two nights on perfect sunny and mild days! Reading Eat, Pray, Love and craving Italian food! Just my luck as I passed the GoldRush Center, an old... More

We stopped in for dinner while visiting Gold Beach and after eating a lot of seafood decided we needed a change. I had the Chicken Marsala and my husband had the Crab Ravioli and we both were disappointed. The chicken marsala was bit size pieces of chicken, with few mushrooms and too many artichoke pieces. Nowhere near a traditional chicken... More

I never personally write reviews, however, I believe this restaurant deserves one. Excellent food, excellent atmosphere, and excellent staff! This has to be one of the best restaurants (let alone Italian restaurants) that I have ever ate at! There needs to be many more places like this in the world

I have been to Mangia Buff several times but the first I have tried the Eggplant Parmesan. It is not on the menu. As it is one of my favorite Italian meals I jokingly asked Kevin when he was going to add it to the menu. He smiled and said if I wanted it he would fix it for my... More

We were only in Gold Beach for 2 nights but ate at Mangia Buff the first night at the suggestion of the check in girl at our Hotel. She got it right - generous servings of pasta (too generous for me) that were tasty and cooked just right. The salad bar had one of the best salads I've ever eaten,... More

We enjoyed the friendly, casual atmosphere of Mangia Buff - and our perfectly prepared lobster ravioli was beautifully plated. The lemon cream wine sauce was savory and complimented the ravioli filling. Portions were satisfying. We felt the timing was slightly rushed, however and would have liked a little more relaxed pace. We were in and out pretty quickly. We would... More
