Ralating to MANGIA

Both 60’s classic, black and white movies embody the philosophy of our unserstated Mediterranean cooking style. They are timeless, appealing photographically and feature the effrotless elegance and grace of the protagonists. The natural beuaty of the Italian sceneries where they were shot are allowing us to travel home, to large family lunch gatherings where our grandmother was preparing heartwarming food for everyone, using here secret recipes. Just like what we daily do at MANGIA.
