Walk into College Station’s new Casa Mangiare and you’ll immediately know you’re not in a spaghetti-and-meatballs kind of place. Low lighting, earthtones, and white tablecloths point to the restaurant’s elegance, which is underscored by massive four-tiered chandeliers and a pianist singing Great American Songbook classics. From scallops to veal to specialty pizzas and pastas, Casa Mangiare’s upscale Italian options made choosing entrées an excruciating task. We were ultimately delighted with our spaghetti with lobster and with our pappardelle with braised wagyu beef in Bolognese sauce. While the Maine lobster tail itself was on the small side, the sauces of both dishes offered exceptional flavor without being too rich or heavy. Bookending our entrées were delectable rosemary focaccia and mouth-watering tiramisù.
