Mangia e Bevi delivers food to the seniors instead of opening the dining room to the public
Oceanside, CA June 3, 2020 – Three years ago Tore Trupiano and Ann Perham had a vision. Their vision was to open a small dine in Italian restaurant. Tore, a veteran in the restaurant industry, and Ann, amazing decorating skills, great customer service and attention to detail starting to make their vision a reality. The focus was to create an authentic Italian dine in restaurant. The emphasis was to artistically plate old world and authentic meals. In early spring we found a spot that was previously an Italian restaurant. It was in the unlikeliest of all places, in the industrial part of el Corazon. Ann quickly saw a diamond in the rough. Intimate patio dining, water fountain and a fireplace. Windows from a house built in the early 1900’s transformed the black steel fence into a Tuscan like setting. The dining room long and narrow, almost like the streets of Palermo. Rich burgundies, golden rod, black, and yellow create the setting along a beautiful wall mural of a map of Europe. Mangia e Bevi quickly won the hearts of local diners and was awarded one of the best from Ranch & Coast magazine.
