Mangiamo’s food philosophy, as set out in the menu, includes using organically grown herbs, olives and olive oil from an Eastern Cape supplier and stoneground flour for their pizza bases and linguine. The pizza bases are super thin and the toppings deliciously sparse, featuring interesting combinations such as carpaccio and green fig; and rocket, blue cheese, pear and Parma ham. The tomato and gorgonzola soup starter boasts marvellous, deep flavours and comes beautifully presented with very moreish slices of bread. The pastas arrive in hefty and unfussy portions, just like mama used to make them. The Caprese salad is a thing of beauty: according to the menu, the mozzarella is made by a cheesemaker in Plettenberg Bay. Gluten-free pizza bases are available and vegetarians are spoilt for choice with the predominantly Mediterranean menu. One almost feels that the Asian dishes are superfluous and that the focus should rather just be Italian, but then the Thai Curry hits such a good spot that all’s forgiven. Wine The wine list is a joy to behold, with a large and interesting variety, and the added bonus that almost all of the offerings are available by the glass. Bottle pricing is reasonable, but the bill gets quite steep when you order by the glass. Service The presence of the friendly, relaxed owner, as well as a troop of happy, young and energetic waiters mean that guests never have to wait long for service. While the waiters are generally not too well informed about the menu, this is not the end of the world, since the owner is on the floor all the time and happy to explain. Ambience Mangiamo is housed in an antique shop with delightful décor, complete with a fountain in the centre of one of the rooms. Antique rugs beneath an eclectic mixture of tables keep patrons cosy. The pizza oven is in sight of the restaurant and the jovial noise of families and friends having dinner, plus the sound of the coffee machine running on the counter, creates a happy buzz. And… You can shop for antiques while dining, and parking is safe within the walled yard of the business.

He will always be remembered for his big beautiful smile, bear hugs, yummy food, warm hospitality, loyalty, kindness, and amazing capacity to love. His beautiful wife Dee and young sons, Joshua and Samuel were his world! Join us in capturing your memories of Joel for his family and friends to draw near to when the heartache of his departure becomes too hard to bear.

Tributes pour in after restaurateur’s shock death BY HERALD REPORTER - 08 OCTOBER 2015 SHOCKED family and friends of prominent and popular Wicker Woods and Mangiamo restaurant owner Joel Malkinson rushed to the Walmer business premises after he was found dead by a staff member early yesterday. Tributes have been pouring in for the affable 42-year-old culinary expert and father of two who was found with a bullet wound to the head in his business premises in 6th Avenue. A gun registered in his name was found near to his body. No foul play is suspected. Malkinson’s body was found in a chair in the bar of the Mangiamo pizzeria area at about 8.15am by an employee who had just arrived. According to police, the worker then ran out of the building, screaming for assistance. An inquest investigation is under way. By 9am, family and friends were arriving at the restaurant while Malkinson’s distraught wife, Dee-Anne – who co-owns lifestyle shop Gently Worn on the same premises – sat on a chair on the patio being comforted by relatives and friends. Several visibly shocked employees also sat outside, crying, while giving statements to police. Police spokesman Warrant Officer Alwin Labans said attempts at resuscitation were made by a person who arrived on the scene, but Malkinson was declared dead after the arrival of an ambulance. One employee said they had become concerned when Malkinson failed to collect them for work as usual. “We work for him and he usually fetches us on the way to work,” the employee, who did not want to be named, said. “We became suspicious when he did not arrive and tried to call him, but there was no answer. When we arrived, we saw all the police and ambulances here. “We are shocked.” Neighbour Jacques van Wyk, 49, who is busy with alterations to his house, said: “I heard no gunshot or anything. It was just like a normal day. “I often saw him [Malkinson] arrive at about 8am but when I started seeing ambulances and police pull into the restaurant, I went to find out what had happened,” he said. “I am so shocked. He was such a nice, down-to-earth person.” While friends were reluctant to speak at the scene, tributes poured in on social media. Val Hanson posted on Facebook: “Darling Joel ... words cannot convey the terrible shock this is going to have on PE. -Gareth Wilson
