A GLOBAL PALATE
WELCOME TO TUTTI MANGIA
Tutti Mangia Italian Grill, founded by Claremont's well-known family man, Ed Inglese, and his brother-in-law, Jim Hermanson, offers a delicately composed menu of Italian Cuisine with global influences. The pair have built a brand of excellence with Tutti Mangia and it's two sister restaurants, Spaghetti Eddie's in Glendora and Eddie's Italian Eatery in Claremont.
FROM THE BEGINNING
Inglese began his restaurant career by earning a degree from Cal Poly Pomona’s respected Hotel & Restaurant Management Program in the early 80’s. The inspiration to run his own restaurant was shaped by a visit to First Street Bar & Grill located in idyllic Downtown Claremont. Shortly after that memorable visit, Inglese teamed up with Hermanson in 1985 to open a small pizza takeout establishment in Glendora. The menu included traditional pizzas and pastas, but with a flavor profile that had more depth than one would expect from a typical mom and pop Italian restaurant. Today, it has become Spaghetti Eddie’s Cucina Italiana and is a staple in the Glendora Community.
After 10 successful years in Glendora, Inglese and Hermanson were ready for a more elegant setting and envisioned a restaurant that would focus on the quality of the product at the center of the plate accompanied by only the freshest of ingredients. In the Summer of 1996, Inglese heard of an available restaurant location in the heart of Claremont Village. At the time, it was a Chinese restaurant, but when Inglese walked in he was immediately taken back 13 years to the old First Street Bar & Grill location he had once dined at. He knew it was the same location and felt that fate had brought them together.
Inglese and that restaurant owner inked a deal and shortly after, Tutti Mangia Italian Grill opened for business. Since the beginning, the menu has included upper tier cuisine and has been earning top accolades including Best Restaurant, Best Italian Restaurant and a dozen Wine Spectator Awards.
I.E.'S BEST GOURMET ITALIAN DINING
Tutti Mangia has evolved into the Inland Empire's best gourmet Italian restaurant with prime steaks and chops included on the menu.
Inglese has changed the way people enjoy Italian cuisine by combining classic Italian dishes with other worldwide influences. Tutti’s is a fine dining experience for locals and visitors alike where guests can expect a memorable experience.
The addition of Italian-born Chef Daniele Turchetti as the head chef in 2019 brought even more Italian authenticity, bringing flavors from Northern and Southern Italy to the restaurant. Turchetti has added more fresh pastas, pizzas and delicious seafood dishes to the menu.
Tutti Mangia is also renowned for its Wine and Martini bar which includes a fantastic selection of local craft beers, a wine list with over 200 selections, and cocktails developed by Tutti’s experienced mixologist.
A level II sommelier is on staff to assist guests, pairing the perfect wine with their meal for an even more unforgettable dining experience.
A FAMILY OF RESTAURANTS
After opening Tutti Mangia, Inglese and Hermanson went on to open Eddie’s Italian Eatery in Claremont. This location is proud to offer Italian-American inspired cuisine and has a similar menu to that of Spaghetti Eddie’s in Glendora.
The pair have made a name for themselves not only by providing excellent cuisine and service over the past 24 years at Tutti's, but by also building a family of restaurants known and loved by their community.
Hands down 5 stars with no doubt in mind. When I called to make the reservation I knew I picked the right spot she too (who ever she was) was nice and helpful. Kathy was an absolute gem - she was so kind, upbeat, tentative, and she just was the best. The food was absolutely amazing. We couldn't make up our minds and tasted a few different things. The brussel sprout salad was ok. The grilled octopus was perfect; I appreciate that it was cooked just right. I loved the flavor. The pastas were tender and had the best flavors. We were a table of three and none were disappointed with anything at all. Drinks were good as well; each plate came in great timing. I think it's a cute spot for a first date...sit outside or at the window. The place was packed but the quality and timing was great (I'm running out of synonyms here). All was perfect. Definitely recommend and we'll certainly come back!
Best rustic Italian joint in the area. We ordered a few different dishes and all delivered above expectation.
All were fantastic. Perfect for date night or family night.
We had a great night. The ribeye was tender, juicy and tasty. The scallops special with pasta made of carrots with a cauliflower sauce was delish. The server was polite and pretty tentative
