Our mission is to provide high-quality food for all those that wish to combine fun and enjoyable ambiance with skillful cooking into one extraordinary dining experience. We highly encourage sharing! We want all of our guests to feel as if they are attending a dinner party in our home. We invite you to join us, sit back, relax, laugh, cheers, and enjoy all that we have to offer.
Our flagship location in the beautiful Caribbean Surf Town of Rincon, Puerto Rico is getting a sister! The Mangia Mi girls are bringing their unique culinary stylings to the laid back, cozy, and picturesque town of Calistoga, northern Napa Valley!
Mangia MI is the brainchild of Chef Rebecca White-Keefe and Wine-O Kara Keefe, established in 2016.
The girls met in Key West, where Rebecca was running several pop up restaurants and Kara was working as a wine representative. Their travels found them in Rincon, Puerto Rico, where they not only fell in love with the island, the people, and the culture, but eventually got married on the beach with 30 of their closest friends and relatives and opened the original brick and mortar, Mangia Mi.
Rebecca White Keefe (Chef/Co-owner and winner of the Food Network's "Cooks vs Cons" 2016)
Born and raised near New Haven, Connecticut graduated college from Emerson in Boston, Massachusetts. She's had a passion for cooking all of her life and grew up making huge Italian feasts side by side with her family each and every Sunday. Through running her first restaurant in Connecticut, food trucks and pop up locations over the years she's been afforded the time to fine tune her craft. Inspired everyday by her surroundings, It's always exciting to see what she will come up with next!
Kara Keefe (Wine-O/Co-owner)
Born and raised in the shore area of New Jersey, graduated from Georgian Court College and developed a love for the hospitality interest very early on. She began working for a fine wine distributor and it was this job that developed her genuine obsession with wine. Her dream for over 15 years was to land in Napa Valley to take in all of the obvious history and beauty that it has to offer.
Goal achieved! (CHECK!!)
Our Food and Wine
Savor The Flavor
Chef Rebecca White invites you to watch as your pasta is made fresh daily, FROM SCRATCH! An ever changing chalkboard style menu has allowed Rebecca to share her daily inspirations with our customers (new family ;)
With an open kitchen we invite you to be right in the mix of things! Our goal is to make you feel as if you are attending a dinner party at our home.
Also ever changing, we boast an extensive wine list! Many by the glass options focused primarily of our friends and neighbors here in Calistoga and the Napa Valley. Each wine has been selected very carefully based on all of the friends we've met here along the way. The girls have tasted and visited each and every wine/winery on this list and invite you to do the same!
We are not your traditional coursed out meal! We highly encourage sharing! Grab a few friends, sit at our most inviting family table, share a bottle of wine and a few (or many) plates, catch up, laugh and enjoy!
Although our menu does change daily, we do have a few staples that you can check out below. Tantalize the tastebuds and let us get you sauced!
