My wife and I have been to two of the three local venues: Princess Anne Rd and Oceanfront. The food was fabulous Italian. The She Crab Soup was wonderful. Salads and main courses were yummy. Wines were paired with precision. Mondays offered wonderful wines at bargain prices. The whole dining experience was a pleasure.

My wife and I decided to come here for dinner before we leave Virginia Beach to head back to Pennsylvania tomorrow. We were impressed, my wife comes from an all Italian family so she can be picky but she was impressed. The drinks were great. I ordered a screwdriver. I wasn't expecting much because it's a simple drink but they... More

Best Italian restaurant I have been in a long time. Crab soup was divine. Won five years in a row for best crab soup in the area. Ordered the chicken portofino which was excellent. My associates got the calamari and veal parmigiana which were "dreamy" according to my them. A don't miss in Norfolk!!!

Dropped in after finding the Pleasure House location was no longer a Mannino's. Was seated in a corner booth and proceeded to have a wonderful dinner and great company from fellow diners from PA. Hubby had the special braised beef and I had the manicotti, with she crab soup, and brushetta and wine. To say the least we are both... More

Our party of 4 dined here last night and were a bit surprised at the unassuming location. We were greeted by a very nice hostess and seated at their "best booth". Our delightful server, Diane, quickly greeted us and made us feel immediately welcome and very glad we chose this restaurant. The menu is extensive with creative and traditional italian... More

Family friendly pricing. GREAT FOOD! Large portions. Walking out FULL. EXCELLENT wait staff. Wonderful restaurant setting. They are classy: they took our food and boxed it up for us. That is the way it's supposed to be when you have leftovers. The servers in the US flop the to-go boxes on our tables and we have to do it. What's... More
