My name is Tony Mangia. I am a food blogger and the creator of “Ciao Down with Tony Mangia”. Food and all things Italian are are my passions. This blog will be dedicated to my musings on food, whether it’s about the latest restaurant I’ve tried or what I’m cooking in my kitchen. Besides just writing, I will include pictures, as well. I want to thank you for taking time to read my blog. I look forward to taking you along on my food journey!

There’s one thing I have to do every morning so that I can function like a normal human being throughout the day.  And that is to make myself an espresso.  It’s funny, if I don’t have that jolt of caffeine I feel like a zombie.  Until recently...
