The Italians are here
Original post made by Curious on Aug 23, 2013
I wish Mangia Mi much success, but I wish their market research had indicated Pleasanton did not need another Italian place but rather something like First Street Ale House or Sauced in Livermore.

Mangia Mi is the 11th Italian restaurant on Main Street and the 15th Italian place in Pleasanton exclusing pizza-only establishments.

liberalism is a disease is a registered user.
Don't eat here, curious. Or, open your own restaurant serving vegetarian weeds and grass clippings. I'm sure the diners downtown will vote with their wallets where they'd rather eat. There's a good reason these Italian restaurants thrive downtown...most people like Italian food. Otherwise, they would never survive.

The previous post is a little smart-a**, but fundamentally it's correct. Voting with your wallet is fundamentally correct. When there are too many Italian restaurants downtown, some will close and become something else.
It's a bit like wondering why, on an intersection of two streets with a total of four corners, there are three gas stations. It's because people are buying enough gas to support all three.
