About Us

Richard “Doc” Parmley and his wife Micci opened Mangia Italiano in 1983 as a fresh pasta shop and Italian delicatessen. According to legend, Doc introduced Saint Louis to a newfound Italian drink called espresso which quickly became a staple of the South City bohemian culture.

When Mangia opened, Doc imported several pasta machines from Italy and set to work on finding the perfect combination of simple, pure ingredients to provide the city of Saint Louis with great fresh pasta.

Over the years, Mangia evolved into a full service restaurant, still focusing on fresh pasta and local ingredients. As the pasta gained popularity, many of the city’s finest restaurants started featuring it on their menus.

Restaurateur David Burmeister purchased Mangia Italiano in October 2001 with partners Paul Smith, Landis Irvin, and Russell Davis. After a complete kitchen overhaul, the partners reopened the business in February 2002. Retaining the funky Formica tables and constant work-in-progress mural by artist Wayne St. Wayne, Burmeister was driven to maintain an eclectic atmosphere with great dining options.

In February of 2011 Mangia was reopened by childhood friends and former patrons, James Bonsanti and Collier Evans.  Residents of South Saint Louis, the two owners have a total of over 30 years in the service industry combined.  The restaurant underwent minor renovations, a revamped menu and expanded local beer and liquor selections.
