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

The Kempsville location, although not that desirable, does not reflect on Mannino's food or service. We have eaten here many times over the last few years and it's always great. The newest Mannino's at the oceanfront is next on our list to check out. The quality of the food never varies, it is the best. Service fluctuates depending on how... More

Food was very good. Staff was attentive and friendly. Worth the drive away from the beach. Came early no reservation needed. One of the better italian restaurants we have had dinner at.

We always go to the Kempsville location for dinner. Love the service, and the food of course. We were really excited to hear about the new Oceanfront location, too! (3420 Atlantic Ave). So, we went there for dinner and were so impressed. Love the decor and ambiance of the new restaurant. Very cool oceanfront location, with the same delicious food... More

We have been coming to Mannino's regularly for 3 years now. During this last visit, I literally said to my wife "Every time is like the first time". We ordered some of the specials (Summer Salad and Salmon/Leek soup) along with our regular favorites (Chicken Parm and Chicken Francese). I still get as excited about this place as the first... More

My husband and I have dined here many times before this evening. Our server, Diane, was very attentive and informative. Our experience, from our wine order through dessert was very enjoyable. The main course was delicious and everything we ordered was as described. I would recommend this restaurant to friends.
