Mangia Mangia in Albany/Berkeley?
This one just hit my radar, and all I can find on it online is a 13-year-old Chron review and some pretty good (if a bit mixed) Yelp takes -- any hounds been there? Not expecting miracles, but if it's an occasional near-Solano alternative to La Siciliana in Elmwood (or something similar), I'd love to know about it -- anyone?

the first time i went, many years ago, the food was fine, but they were busy and really rudely rushed us over our dinner. kept us away for a long time. went back with friends about 4 months ago, food was pretty average to below-average. i would not go back. sauces were uninspiring, muddled... it's just not that great. I'm no longer a huge fan of Nizza La Bella, but I think their take on Italian is better, even.
