FOUR of us went to Mangiamo’s to take advantage of the mid-week offers that Darwen’s favourite Italian restaurant is famous for.

And this week we were lucky enough to turn up when they were having a January sale (on the food not the furniture)!

Specialising in Mediterranean and Italian cuisine the deal was purse-friendly where you buy any starter and get your main for meal half price.

With a wine of the week, cocktail of the month and Prosecco by the glass for just £4.50 the drinks’ specials were almost as good as the food offers.

The menu had something for everyone and our starters were all just under £5 – garlic mushrooms, grilled haloumi and chorizo, meatballs and beans.

And I went for grilled goats’ cheese, served on a rocket salad, with caramelized onions and a balsamic glaze: A perfectly light starter, ready to be followed by a substantial main.

Needless to say we went for the steak menu, apart from my friend who had a Pizza Calazone – a perfect pizza for a pregnant lady; jam-packed with cheese, tomatoes, ham, salami and mushrooms.

I had Filetto Al Pepe, deliciously served in a creamy peppercorn sauce, accompanied by vegetables.

The usual price would be £16.90 and I’d be happy to pay this for a quality piece of fillet steak again.

I must admit I have always been a fan of Mangiamo having been a ‘regular’ for many years, the atmosphere is warming and the decor looks well – and if it’s your birthday you’re always in for a sparkling treat!

All-in-all Mangiamo is a great night for a girls’ night out and it’s also perfect for families.

The most impressive thing was the bill – for just £75 us four ladies left feeling full and happy!

I never understand why Garlic Mushrooms are charged at five pounds a serving,Mushrooms and Garlic are hardly the most expensive ingredients,and are easily cooked by simmering in a pan with butter or olive oil,it's not rocket science,

juanbbien- You must remember, when eating out, that the cheapest expense for the restaurant is the food.
You are paying for someone to cook it and serve it and lay the table and clean up.Also rates,heating,lighti
ng etc have to be paid for.
