Mangia DC Food Tours

Mangia DC Food Tours


The result of tonight’s quarantine kitchen! Thank you guys - this was fun and delicious!
Looking forward to experiencing the Mangia DC Food Tours, but we’re enjoying their company at the 2019 Taste of Georgetown
Thank you Dave for a great tour for our group. You were the best. Here are some pictures to share
Went on the Dupont Circle food tour. Worth every penny. You get a lot for your money. Many food stops with large portions. Wine & beer included. Gelato & iced coffee too. Nice history of the area by the tour guide. Dave was great!
Doing the tour. Awesome food, awesome history, awesome people, and an awesome guide.
Another fabulous day here in the nation's Capitol. We had a fantastic Italian Food Tour with Mangia DC that I highly recommend. We learned about the history and community in the Dupont Circle area of D.C. Our tour guides, Dave and Maddy, were amazing. We even had 2 high school student interns with us. Good thing we did a lot of walking in between restaurants!
Italian food tour of D.C. With Greg and Laura. In my happy place. First item
Came back to Darlington House for dinner!
May 27, 2017--I had a great time on the Georgetown Foodie tour yesterday. Dave was an amazing tour leader--pacing the tour just right with a balance of history, fun facts, and time for guests to ask questions and/or just spend time with each other. This was our first Mangia DC Food Tours and look forward to doing another one.
We really liked the restaurants we went to and the food choices. Madeline, our tour guide was lively and made our day fun. We enjoyed learning about the history of the restaurant owners and the buildings. My favorite was the Darlington House. I didn't feel too rushed and enjoyed seeing new places. We even stopped off at Dupont circle for a a little fun quiz about the statue, representing sea, wind, sky. I would recommend this tour.

We learn about the history architecture and culture while tasting from local eateries in Washington DC! Customers eat learn and enjoy our city!

Mangia? Food tour?... Say what? “Mangia” is Italian for “Eat! Enjoy!” Mangia DC is our way of helping locals and tourists alike enjoy DC and all it has to offer—the food, the sights, the history, and the people! Join us for our Italian Food Tour! Our food tour is a walking tour in which an energetic, knowledgeable guide with a passion for food will show you around the city just like a historic sightseeing tour—with the added bonus of stops along the way at some of the area's most unique and delicious restaurants for tastings. We will stop at 4-5 local eateries and sample at least one dish. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions or food allergies, we will be more than happy to accommodate. Unlike many major U.S. cities, Washington, DC doesn’t have an official Little Italy. However, that isn’t to say our fair city isn’t home to some of the world’s best Italian food. Schedule your food tour today and taste for yourself what DC has to offer!

Operating as usual

Packing the dry ingredients for a delicious Latin meal!

We have donated a portion of every ticket sold since the beginning of Mangia DC, and this #GivingTuesday we would like to highlight SOME (So Others Might Eat) who have been on the front lines of fighting homelessness, hunger, and poverty in Washington, DC, for 50 years. As our nation's capital battles the coronavirus, SOME remains dedicated to ensuring that DC's most vulnerable residents receive the care and services they need.

Tomorrow on #GivingTuesday, we at SOME have a goal of raising $100,000 to ensure that every hungry person who comes to us for help this winter gets a hot, nutritious meal and access to our full continuum of care. Thanks to a generous donor who will match your gift dollar-for-dollar, your gift will make TWICE the impact!

Ready to get started?

This #GivingTuesday Mangia DC Food Tours has decided to donate to Sick Cells in their fight for raising awareness and their advocacy work for those affected with sickle cell disease. 1 in 365 African Americans have sickle cell disease, yet because of systemic racism in our health care system, sickle cell disease remains -extremely- underfunded. There are currently only 4 medications available. Similar blood disorders like cystic fibrosis and hemophilia have over 100 medications.

To learn more about their advocacy work please visit:

Today is #GivingTuesday. Please consider making a donation to Sick Cells as we continue our work to elevate the voices of the sickle cell disease community.

This year, we have achieved so much while experiencing great loss. Our Co-Founder and inspiration, Marqus Valentine, gained his warrior wings on June, 22. His legacy lives on and continue to drive home the mission of Sick Cells.

Through Marqus' spirit, this year we launched an Ambassadors Program, told 25 new stories, and even attended a White House Roundtable to advocate from the highest house in the land.

On this #GivingTuesday, tap into your #GivingGene and donate to Sick Cells.

Ways to donate:
1. On Facebook
2. On venmo: @sick-cells

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves! See what The Dining Traveler mentions about getting back into the swing of things while staying safe...

I've slowly started to return to restaurants. This pic is from my 2nd brunch outside my home in FIVE months at @convivialrestaurant 🇫🇷
Aside from having a yummy #restaurantweek menu, I liked that there was enough space between tables plus a divider. Servers were great and there was have sanitizer on the table.
Restaurants are doing their part in trying to keep us safe but we, the consumers need to do our part as well.
- be courteous: you know the rules. Wear a mask! Wash your hands. If you feel unwell, stay home.
- be patient: restaurant owners and staff are doing the best they can. They are constantly having to change their procedures as health rules and guidance change
- not ready to eat out yet? Order takeout! If you can, pick it up yourself instead of using delivery apps. Buy gift cards from your favorite restaurants as gifts.
- if you enjoy your experience, give the staff a compliment, tip well, share your experience with your friends on social. Word of mouth goes a long way.
Are you back to dining out? What has your experience been like?
