Bar Review: Tutti Mangia, Claremont, CA

Tutti Mangia is a very quiet quaint smallish Italian Chophouse in Clarement.  Very easy to miss if you’re not looking for it.  Which would be a shame because it is very good.

And did I mention small?  The bar only has about 8 seats and the lounge area has an additional 4 two person tables.  The restaurant itself it a bit bigger.  So get there early because it does fill up.   Or make a reservation via the link below.

The place itself is clean, bright and well organized, if a bit tight, with lots of windows.  Overall the impression is upscale cosmopolitan and yet with a touch of romantic.

The barkeep is Phil.  I can only assume he has a backup somewhere, but every time I’ve been there he’s the bar master.  And rightfully so!  He does a great job of mixing the cocktails.  The martinis are plentiful, cold, dry, and served promptly.

Phil is the perfect barkeep: attentive, suggestive, helpful and discreet the rest off the time.  And never too far away if you need a second drink.  Or even a third.
