Mangia Nashville is starting off the weekend with a bang, as executive chef and owner Nick Pellegrino just announced that they will be opening for service tonight, having just been granted their final certificate of occupancy.

Located in the Eighth Avenue Commons development at the corner of Craighead Street and Franklin Pike, general manager Rachel Lunsford tells Eater that initially they will be open only on Fridays and Saturdays, serving their family-style pop-up dinner for one seating each night at 7 p.m. But towards the end of March they plan to add daytime hours, opening up as an Italian focacceria, or fast-casual Italian bistro, Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and on Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Friday and Saturday night dinners feature four appetizers, two pastas, two entrees, one vegetable and two desserts. The cost is $50 per person, not including tax, tip or beverages. A full bar is also on offer.

They're currently on their winter menu with plans to switch to a new spring menu in April, so be sure to check their Facebook page for updates, as well as keep an eye out for their new website, which is currently under construction. Reservations for Fridays and Saturdays can be made by emailing them at
