While a bit pricey, we enjoyed our trip to Mannino's. The highlight of the meal was the appetizer, she crab soup. It had LOTS of crab and the flavor was perfecto! The rest of the meal was average and, in my opinion, not quite as good as others in the area like YNOT and Primo Pizzaria but more expensive. The... More

First we were greeted by a wonderful server, Courtney, and then started our meal with a cup of the she crab soup which was the best I've ever had! Our entree's were delicious and thoroughly enjoyed every bite. I will be going back.

Am never disappointed here. Food is superb. Wife had one of the specials which she loved. Courtney was our server and is great - friendly, attentive and never allowed us to want for anything.

Hostesses weren't friendly at all. The waiter was the best part of this meal. He was super friendly and was always checking to see if we needed anything. Food was so so and not worth the price they charged. Location was in a strip mall but I had high hopes after reading the reviews on here. I was sadly disappointed.

I like eating at Mannino's because the food is good but it is expensive and the service is friendly but slow. I've eaten here on several occasions and it is always slow. Expect to be here a while if you eat in. I've started carrying out because the food is good and you have the wait.

I just wanted to take a second to say this was some of the best Italian food I have food in the seven cities. The food was out of this world and to top it off our server Roana was exceptional! She made the whole experience even better! Thank you Manninos and Roanna!

My wife took me to a surprise birthday dinner at Mannino's. We had never been, but her coworker recommended it. It was a great environment with several menu choices that we had not seen at other Italian restaurants and they were delicious. Definitely recommend.

When we first arrived the atmosphere was so quaint and personal. The staff was very inviting with smiles in abundance. Our server was Diane. She knew the menu completely,even every special. I had the shrimp and grits. If you thought you didn't like grits think again. Fabulous! Diane was perfect, never a second away if we needed anything. Mannino's has... More

We found Mannino's through Tripadvisor. It was our first trip to Virginia Beach but it won't be our last. Our waitress Diane was incredible!!! She helped us decide on one of the most delicious meals we have ever had and even packaged up a dessert for us when we said we couldn' eat another bite. We told her we were... More

We were driving back from NC, and decided to stop by this Mannino's after our excellent experience at the T-good location. All we can say, again... is wow! Our server, Diane, was quick, knowledgeable, and friendly. I had the award - winning She Crab soup. Clear to see why it consistently wins. I also had the Fried Oyster Dinner. I... More
